About


Welcome!

I’m Layan. I’m a Professional Life Coach, Positive Psychology Practitioner, Program Facilitator and who is committed to helping you become the woman of your dreams!

Based in Dubai with a strong passion for supporting women in their happiness and wellness journeys, I help people like you achieve their dreams and become assertive about their goals and who they want to become in the world.

One of the things I often support my clients with is building confidence and strengthening their resilience

I struggled with low self-confidence at a very young age, and it was something that continued to impact my life for many years. It was hard to recognize my strengths and embody my values because I lacked self-efficacy.

I would prioritize the expectations of others before checking in with myself and my priorities. I questioned my self-worth, rarely followed my heart, and made fear-based decisions to please those around me.

Reconnecting with my self-confidence did not happen overnight, but once it did, my whole life changed! It affected my love life, my body, my career, and my social life.

This is why coaching work is so important to me. Women today experience intense pressure to effortlessly juggle many different roles. Perfectionism, self-doubt, depression, and anxiety are on the rise, yet now, more than, women are expected to look (and be) confident and happy.

I love supporting my clients in their personal journeys, helping them step into their joy and assertiveness to bolster their personal and professional wellbeing.

I work with women from all walks of life and from all over the world, supporting them in:

  • Managing the everyday stress they face in their personal and professional lives.
  • Gaining the clarity they need to prioritize their dreams and goals and help them find the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of getting in touch with their inner selves and realizing their potential.

I work with professional women on establishing a work-life balance, developing career clarity, and effectively managing stress. I also support women who are starting or growing their own business to foster positive mindset and work toward goal achievement.

My Favorite Tip

One of the things that helped boost my confidence was learning to listen to myself. The simplest way to do this is to check-in with yourself regularly and ask, “What do I need right now?”

My answer to this question can vary depending on the day. Some days I need to fix my posture from sitting for too long in the same awkward position, or I need a drink of water or take a small walk. Other days I need a reminder that it’s okay to say “no” or put myself first.

This question helps center me in the moment and allows me to focus on taking better care of myself. Try it for yourself and see what you learn!
