Salaam & Hello, I’m LaYinka!
Qualified Self-Transformation Coach
As a woman who once felt disconnected from myself, I know what it’s like to go for quick ‘fixes’, hoping that a break, a movie, or even a book would sort things out. While they feel good for a while, they don’t last long, and you feel frustrated and stuck.
You’ve been there, right? And it sucks.
The good news is that there’s a better solution.
As a qualified self-transformation coach, I support you work at the root of your issues so you get to deeply connect with the ah-may-zing woman you really are, unearth the God-given greatness that already lies within you, and fulfil your greatest potential.
It was one day in 2014, when I was shocked by the woman I saw in my reflection. After a meltdown with my children, I stood in the bathroom and stared at myself in the mirror. Drained, empty, overwhelmed, frustrated, and lost, I hated the woman I saw. I couldn’t recognise her, and yet I knew, saw, and deeply felt how she was bringing misery, tension, and anger in her home and projecting that onto her familys.
It was ugly. And it was tiring.
Staring hard at myself in the mirror, I cried because I didn’t know how I’d allowed myself to get there. I looked at myself and asked a single question that set my heart in motion:
“LaYinka, if you died today, what would your children have to say about you?”
From the answers that came forth — passive aggressive, always shouting, harsh, negative, and complaining — I knew that I couldn’t go out with that legacy. I couldn’t carry on on that trajectory. I couldn’t carry on just pretending everything was okay — faking it and not making it. I knew something had to change before I lost the people who were important to me and before I lost everything I loved.
So I embarked on the journey to know myself, understand myself, forgive myself, embrace myself, love myself, and become a better version of myself. I focused on myself, regardless of the messiness going on in my home, because a verse in the Qur’an says:
“Indeed, God will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.”
– Quran: chapter 13, verse 11
I evolved and emerged a different woman, and became softer, kinder, and more open. I grew closer to the woman I believe God created me to be. And I love every single part of me.
Am I a finished product? Not at all. I’m always growing and learning from the tests, the highs, and all the opportunities God sends my way.
And this is why I’m the best person to support you, because I’ve been there, I went on the journey, and I know what it’s like to get to and be on the other side.
It’s just changed my life. It’s changed my relationships, and it changes your relationships because it changes you.

I am proud to say, I now feel like a woman of potential rather than a woman who struggles to see herself as whole!
The course has taught me self-compassion, a greater insight into my emotions and how to practically deal with my emotions in my day to day life. Finally, I see this programme as an answer from Allah of my dua and as a support from Allah saying I see you and I hear you! » Read More

Being part of this experience is a decision I am truly blessed to have made.
The programme has allowed me to get to know myself beyond what I have been through and the ways in which it has affected me. I went from being very insecure and stuck in the past, to having hope in the future and confidence in myself. I thank LaYinka for her kindness and for accompanying me through this process. You won’t regret trusting her! » Read More
