About

LaYinka Sanni
Certified NLP Practitioner
Founder of Evolve & Emerge


I work with heart-centered Muslim women like you who dedicate
so much of yourself to and for others, that you’ve lost sight of who you really are.

Rather than living from a heart-centered space as your true inner self, you live as the woman you and others believe you ‘should’ be. I’m a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner who is skillful at assisting women like you to tap into greater possibilities within you,  so you go from stagnation to living with intentional purpose and direction as your truest self.

I give you a safe and supportive space, and appropriate tools to discover who you are beyond what you are, so you can unclip your wings, emerge from your chrysalis, and move towards your goals in pursuit of Allah’s pleasure.

My deep, meaningful, and insightful questions can be a catalyst for positive  change for you to gain a new perspective; and it’s the tiniest of shifts in perspective that produce mahoosive (massive+huge) impact. And I’m all about mahoosive impact that changes everything.

My Story


For over 10 years, I worked as an editor and writing coach helping Muslim women who dreamt of leaving a legacy through their words, evolve into dream chasers who told themselves a new narrative, and I took them from idea to polished manuscript.

I loved making words sparkle, and I took great pride in seeing books I worked on go into print. There was a part of me — a significant part of me — that knew that, despite finding editing and writing coaching easy, I was playing it small. I was hiding from myself.

Thus, through my own evolvement and emergence with my study and implementation of NLP, plus being in the client seat myself, I’ve banished self-blame, silenced negative self-talk, and choose to face my reflection and listen to the song my heart has been humming for so long.

I’ve peeled away who I believed I should be and embraced who I am: A heart-centered woman who dedicates her focus to being a partner for other heart-centered Muslim women on their journey to know themselves, hear themselves, see themselves, and be who they truly are.

And that’s what I do.
