Hi, I'm Laura, Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Mindset Coach and Public Speaker
Having been born and raised in a small country, Estonia, to a very poor family, I grew up without a father and my mother was hardly ever around. I have been bullied, slept in a charity shop on top of pile of clothes as I had nowhere else to live or sleep, at times I have been without food and I have suffered with depression so challenges, stress and traumatic events are not new to me.
Despite my challenges, I have always enjoyed performing, being a leader and helping people. As a teenager I was one of the volunteers in Estonian Union for Child Welfare which enabled me to represent Estonia and East-Europe in UN Study about violence against children, I hosted workshops and took part in several public speaking events, in and outside of school.
I then found a way to move to the UK alone at the age of 19 and found a way to study law and become solicitor.
I started my career in law because I had the genuine desire to help people who had suffered owing to someone else’s wrongdoing. However, my day to day experience of life in a corporate world was different to what I had expected, and whilst I enjoyed my job, handling legal cases and managing a team, I realised that I wanted to do something different.
