I’m Layan Mhanna and I am a confidence life coach based in Dubai. I work with clients all over the world, supporting them in their confidence and life fulfillment journeys. 

I live with my best friend, my husband and we dream of taking care of a Golden Retriever someday!

My journey of Personal Development

I bought my first personal development book when I was 13, which taught me about the impact self-talk and self-love has on our lives. Though I hoped reading that book would set me up for life, it was just the beginning of my journey.

While growing up, I struggled with pursuing my passions, making crucial decisions and dealing with anxiety. I constantly worked hard to feel “enough”.

I kept feeling that I needed to fix and heal myself and so I read one self-help book after the other. It was only through life coaching I realized that I need to STOP fixing myself because I am not “Broken”; this is the stand I take today towards my loved ones, my clients and myself.

I still place a big focus on getting the right help, developing my skills, taking care of my health, expanding my goals and learning; the distinction now is I approach all these things differently, and I certainly treat myself better!

What I do

As a confidence coach, I provide space for those who would like to get clarity on what they want, check in with their self-confidence, get connected to their inner strength and serve as their accountability partner in moving forward.


I am a certified Confidence Coach with ACI and trained at the Coaches Training Institute. I also hold a B.A. in Psychology.

My Favourite Tip

I frequently ask myself the question “What is it that I need right now?”; sometimes the answers are – I need to fix my posture, drink water, take a small walk, shut down my PC, eat or watch something funny and so on.

This question helps me get present and take care of myself better. Try it for yourself and see what shows up for you!

My Happy Corner 

One of my biggest joys as a life coach is writing for this blog.

I hope you find something helpful to take with you, even if it just brightens your day a little ?
