Hi! I’m Laura!
I’m a certified and accredited well-being life coach and a certified Reiki and chakra healer.
I help highly sensitive, empathic and kind souls to connect with their inner power and raise their self-esteem in order to design a fulfilling and peaceful life. Working on our boundaries, inner power and strength, self-esteem will enable us to go through life feeling supported, loved and strong, no matter what life threw at us!
The very first step to attracting your loving soulmate, more supportive and like-minded friends, a loving family, more abundance, is working on the relationship with yourself, the ability to be loving, compassionate and assertive, the ability to honour yourself and act with integrity, the ability to listen to yourself without judgement, knowing yourself deeply and being able to manage your emotions.
Self-esteem and personal power is the focus of everything I do, as it's the key to improve many issues and blocks we have in our lives. (oh, and let's not forget that healthy self-esteem is an effective repellent for negative and toxic situations and people...)
My approach to self-esteem is holistic and compassionate because body, mind and spirit are all one and also because perfection doesn't exist, so we better accept ourselves for who we are 😉
One of my favourite authors of all time, Shakti Gawain, once said: “ The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs. So... relationships are one of the most powerful tools for growth...If we look honestly at our relationships, we can see so much about how we have created them.” I really resonate with this view and I apply it in my personal life and work.
Since I can remember, I’ve always been highly sensitive, spiritual, empathic, introverted and this made it difficult for me to create connections and feel accepted for who I was in the world around me. I often felt like an “outsider” and the structures around me, schools, church, family...weren’t really able to support my authentic personality.
The education I received and the toxic and unsupportive environments I often found myself growing in, led me to feel I wasn’t good enough and something was wrong with me. Because of these subconscious convictions, I developed some negative behaviours like hiding myself and people-pleasing. I was insecure about my intelligence, my capabilities and my body image. And because of that, I kept attracting negative and toxic friends, boyfriends and then also work environments.
At the age of 26, I started a long inner journey, as a result of feeling extremely tired and confused, realising that I didn’t know who I was anymore, I slowly started to explore the personal development and spiritual world.
For many more years, I’ve been stuck with my habits of people-pleasing, overgiving, overachieving and codependency, continuing to attract negative people and situations that made me feel exhausted, exploited and not valued for being myself. I kept pushing through not taking the time to listen to myself, my body and inner intuition until I experienced what some people would call a dark night of the soul, it was a deep burnout and period of depression and low energy.
I was forced to face the truth and change all that wasn’t working within myself and in my life and relationships.
I decided to start deepening the relationship with myself, looking inside, giving myself space to ponder, observe and accept my emotions and feelings and face and acknowledge all those parts of myself that I never wanted to accept before.
Little by little I found myself again, I worked on my mind-body connection and I managed to release everything toxic for me (work, “friends”, situations…)
I’ve found coaches and mentors and decided to become a coach myself, deepening my knowledge on energy healing and balancing, to heal myself and then, to help others.
For years I was overly critical towards myself and I wasn’t allowing myself to be authentic, only when I really started to treat myself with compassion and love, my relationships improved. I now have more meaningful and loving relationships with friends and with my partner. I don’t feel used and resentful anymore, I feel loved and valued for who I am.
I know myself and I feel centred because I gave myself space to take care of myself and raise my energy.
I feel that my life has a purpose, more in the flow and in balance.
I now live wholeheartedly and authentically, I have a coaching practice to empower sensitive and introverted women to set themselves free from their negative beliefs and insecurities and therefore live on their own terms and be emotionally independent and strong.
