Leaning into feeling
Hello, I'm Laila. I live in France with my husband Richard.
Over 6 years we had fertility treatment including IUI, IVF and FET to try to have a baby.
Frustration, disappointment, loss, grief, isolation and emptiness were part of our infertility journey. It took falling apart and putting the pieces back together to realise how important compassion and kindness are on any kind of journey.
I began my healing journey with the help of energy work, detoxing, gut health, qi gong, yoga, mindfulness, stress reduction, breathwork, meditation, sophrology, grounding, affirmations, self-talk, forest bathing, image cycling and more.
Over time, I gently peeled back the layers of self-preservation and came back to my heart.
Not wanting to stand still a moment longer, I made the decision to leave behind my career as a creative writer to become the kind of holistic practitioner that I would love to have.
I trained in the holistic practices that resonated with me the most: integrative nutrition, mindfulness-based stress reduction, neuro-linguistic programming, sophrology and mind-body connection. All with the objective of developing an integrative mind-body-spirit approach to helping others like me reconnect with the energy of how they feel.
LEANING INTO FEELING
In 2019, I launched my coaching platform and named it Leaning into feeling.
As a Holistic Fertility Coach, I specialise in informational sharing, emotional well-being and
feel-good therapeutic practices.
My fertility coaching encourages my clients to take care of how they feel by leaning into feeling.
This gentle approach paves the way for my clients to get in touch with the supportive energy of feeling
to create momentum during their fertility journey.
