How Can I Help You?
Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed and unhappy?
Do you want to let go of self-limiting beliefs and show up with greater confidence?
Do you wish for greater authenticity and the joy of living in alignment with who you are and what you value?
Here’s how I can help!
Coaching for Confidence
Over many years of postgraduate research on women’s confidence, and coaching experience working with competent and conscientious women like you, I’ve developed a framework of authentic confidence that is about building your inner resources, so you find the power within to rise above your challenges and pursue the life you truly want to live.
This framework consists of 8 components in a 3-layered pyramid and lies at the core of the work I do. We work through the layers in a structured way because gaps in the underpinning layers lead to stressful striving, proving and pleasing, shame and blame in the face of failure or criticism and eventual burnout or loss of self-belief.
The Change You’ll Experience
Freedom from old and self-limiting beliefs (even the ones you weren’t aware of)
Appreciation of your strengths and the ability to use them effectively at all times
Strategies to build healthy relationships of give and take (not pleasing or judgment)
Clarity on what grounds you and draws you forward (and not driven by your fears)
The ability to manage your emotions and take purposeful action despite them
The courage to have difficult conversations and speak up for what you value and deserve
The wisdom of learning from failure and criticism and moving on (instead of shutting down)
The perspective of a fully lived life that is free from the impossible pursuit of perfection
“It was a real enriching experience working with you! It gave me the “clarity” to find what was really missing in my life, and the practical tools to be able to have a much more balanced life. Now I have a ritual that makes me feel happy everyday. I’m so grateful for your help.

The Coaching Experience
One of the most common experiences clients have in working with me is that I get them. And I believe it’s because of my deep understanding of psychology and neuroscience, along with the very real work of working through my own experiences. It allows me to open up to your needs, challenges and aspirations, expressed and unexpressed, and provide you with both the knowledge and the tools to address them.
Whether you’re facing challenges at work, struggling to speak up or be rewarded for your contributions, or feeling overwhelmed and burnout in trying to fulfill all your roles and responsibilities, I help you gain clarity of vision, understand the beliefs and behaviors that are getting in the way, and help you replace them with those that build you from within. You transform as a person because you literally change the structure of your brain.
Are We a Good Fit?
What I bring to you is sincerity and authenticity of heart, a real commitment to helping you maximize your potential, and the rigour of science, research and evidence based strategies. My work is grounded in positive psychology, the science of a meaningful life, and coaching psychology, the science of an optimal life — an ideal combination to help you be true to who you are and rise to your highest potential.
What I need from you is the commitment to take charge of your life. The best tools are ineffective unless you’re willing to break old patterns of thought and behavior. It’s not always easy because we feel safe in routine, and especially difficult when old habits are based in deep-seated fears. My role is to support you fully in working through them, to hold you accountable toward your goals, and to help you grow through all your experiences.
Working with Homaira has been wonderful in so many ways. Her warmth and understanding really stood out for me. I often felt like I was babbling on about a million things, but she was able to draw out the deepest insights from my “babble” and I have been astonished by how she’s been able to connect the dots for me.
Homaira’s coaching provided me with the examples, appropriate exercises as well as feedback on my thought processes. I found her to be extremely attuned to the biases we women bring to life decisions and as the month progressed I could feel myself changing perspective, feeling stronger in my strengths and more confident about decisions I needed to take.
How Coaching Works
We begin our work with a 5-session package where calls are normally spaced 2 weeks apart. Once you sign up, you are also logged into our private coaching platform where I provide you with unlimited email support, upload evidence based worksheets as you need them, and keep you accountable toward your goals.
The first session is a big picture overview that allows me to understand key beliefs and blockages, along with what’s working and what’s not. We identify the areas of the framework that need to be addressed and create a roadmap for the way forward. You may need an additional 3 session package at the end to feel fully supported as you become your own coach.
