Hello and welcome!
My name is Kayla and being a self-love empowerment coach is not something I ever dreamed of doing. I remember a time in my life when I thought I could never beat my eating disorder. I was convinced this would live with me forever. Not realizing that myself and my eating disorder were two separate things. I remember when I thought I was not going to make it past twenty because I was in such a dark place in my mind unsure how I could escape these thoughts. A time when I was so anxious I didn't think I would ever be on a stage, on a microphone, doing youtube videos or podcasts. I proved myself wrong to all of this inner dialogue. My journey started with three words from one person. 'YOU ARE ENOUGH" I was told that once and went on a massive journey of healing. I have been on the journey of self-love for nine years now but had many ups and downs along the way.
I found healing from meditation and learning how to tune the language I spoke to myself. By changing whom I surrounded myself with and my lifestyle. In 2015 I became a certified yoga meditation teacher. Each part of my path led me to where I am now with an abundance of intuition and tools. My programs are created from experience and working with many people around the world. My passion is fired from the ones I have lost from suicide and watching people do a 180 in their lives from working with me.
As I said before this is not something I chose but I found myself helping countless people and helping them transform their lives because I just listened to them. I saw them and supported them when no one else did. Strangers I had never met online that I would just have calls with from all around the world. Seeing people and doing what I could to help them. This is natural for me and I thrive off of watching people grow. I have done various mental health training for suicide prevention, am a certified Holistic Metaphysical healing practitioner, certified Reiki practitioner, done various energy healing training, and have had different mentors over the years. I started with suicide prevention work after losing my loved ones. Then it also became helping women transition into loving their bodies as well as working with children and teens. Later sharing energy healing with others to add to my coaching services.
In 2018 I moved across the world from Portland, Oregon to Australia to do male suicide prevention work and found myself as a facilitator for a mental health group here. I then met the love of my life and became a wife and a mother. Through this, I went through a massive transition into postpartum experiencing the ups and downs. Understanding how easy it is to lose yourself. That is when my focus became mothers and helped them through the transitions to feel their best selves again. The years of programs I've led people who have anxiety, depression, and eating disorders have given me a lot of experience. I have a more holistic approach when working with my clients. I do my best to discover the root causes of why someone is feeling a certain way. Healing the mind, body, and soul. All of this I wrote in my first book "Fearless Sunflower" A book that shares my story and how you can heal yourself. This book is currently being edited for a new version.
I show you that you are more than enough and always have been. How to tune the language you speak to yourself. How to move past blocks and push past your fears or insecurities. How to live the life you have always been dreaming of. How to feel the best you have ever felt in your body. How to create healthy routines and through all of this, I cheer you on every single day. We say goodbye to self-doubt. Darkness is always there waiting to take you on a journey but I show you how to ignite your light so bright it will become natural for you to do this on your own.
We all have different gifts but don't have all the answers. There are many layers to healing. If I am not the right person for you or I feel someone else can guide you better on your journey, I will refer you to someone who I am confident can offer what you need. Especially if something is out of my scope, I will refer you to someone who is a specialist in that area. I am here to support many walks of life. Sometimes people won't go get help but they are usually online. I reach the people in the online world who are on social media and maybe feel alone or need someone to see them. The first step is saying yes to yourself. Trying something new and just scheduling a free discovery call with me. I create a safe space for you to feel comfortable and not ashamed.
With love, Kayla
