Salaam & Hello, I’m LaYinka!
As a dedicated 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 Expert, I support you on your transformational journey 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.
And the best part? It doesn’t take months and months of work — yasssss!
Start your journey to come home to yourself by booking a breakthrough call so we can get you moving.
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.
Now, I’m not looking at people’s validation. I know my worth, I know what I am today.
I cannot even begin how amazing it feels to be living without having shame strapped to my back.
I never knew that it was possible, that it was possible for me, to live without shame. And I finally feel like the me I was meant to be. No, I have not been lit by a fire… I AM the fire!

I look forward to my Saturday mornings with the Healing Embrace ladies…
And listening to everyones shares. It’s been so comforting to be able to share this space with ladies who are courageous enough to be vulnerable and share the parts of yourselves that were once unreachable. And how LaYinka has guided us through this process has been absolutely amazing.

I’m not just surviving, but living…
I feel like I’m a newborn, ready to take on the world. Respecting and honouring myself and not feeling guilty for putting myself first. Loving myself is so much fun now. It was such a battle and war loving myself in the past. I’m looking forward to this new journey ahead where I’m not just surviving, but living and doing it alive, awake and alert. And feeling every beautiful moment. You really have a gift, LaYinka, and I mean it. Please continue to do the work that you do. You are helping so many women to not only heal, but to really, really learn to LIVE.
