Head of Content Strategy. Happify
I work with conscientious women who are driven to succeed at work, be fulfilled in life and lead with their true and authentic expression
My work is grounded in research and based on a pioneering framework of confidence and authenticity that I have developed and tested on hundreds of women. It’s about helping you connect inwards and expand your perspectives. It’s about helping you transform as a person.
Coaching for Confidence
In over a decade that I’ve been coaching women – often highly competent women – I’ve seen again and again that many times women know what they need to do, yet are unable to do so. They know they are competent, yet they doubt themselves, they fear taking risks, they don’t ask for what they deserve. If they do muster up the courage to do so, they fall apart with failure or criticism. Or become burdened by the pressure to maintain their successes (with an underlying fear of being found out to be a fraud).
I’ve done many years of research on women’s confidence in the workplace, and have found that the primary reason many of us fear speaking up, stepping out, and showing up fully in our work and relationships is because we are disconnected with the inner core of self-worth. This is the place of authentic joy, expression and purpose. Some of us recognize these feelings of low self-worth, but don’t have the tools to manage them effectively. And many of us don’t even know they exist, playing small and struggling every time we face challenges.
My work is about helping you connect to the life within you and to find success and fulfillment however you define it.
Coaching with Compassion
My approach is underpinned by compassion for many reasons:
Compassion is the key to activating the courage within. No lasting change has ever been brought about by pointing out faults, or wagging a finger in self-righteousness. My natural strengths of kindness and perspective help me enter your world with empathy, connect with your pains and aspirations, even the ones that you may not be able to put a finger on, and provide you with just what you need to move forward from a place of grounded-ness.
I know that you are often the hardest on yourself. My compassion will help you build self-compassion – the key to taking risks (despite the possibility of failure or criticism) and to growing through them (even when things don’t go your way). It will also help you connect to your own needs and silent aspirations and enter the conscious space of self-transformation where you can hold onto multiple perspectives at the same time.
“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 everyday of asking myself this two questions.
“Did I do something today to make myself happy”
“Did I do something today to feel deeply connected with someone”
I’m so grateful for your help.

How it Works
We begin with a free half hour call where I get clear on what you’re looking for, and you ask as many questions as you have about how we’ll be working together. You’re under no obligation to hire me with this call. Its purpose is for us to determine whether we’ll be a good fit for working together.
If we decide to move ahead, you purchase a 5-session coaching package which gives you instant access to your personalized coaching platform. This is where:
- You book your 5 coaching calls
- You complete and submit worksheets that I upload for you
- You stay accountable towards the goals we set at each call
- You submit a pre-call form so our calls are laser-focused
- You reach out to me via email as and when needed between calls
The first call is focused on creating a road map for the journey ahead. The following 4 calls address each of the components of self-worth along with the challenges you face in them. We end with an action plan that helps you stay on track and build lasting habits for the journey forward.
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.
I went to Homaira to help me navigate some pretty unhealthy personal relationships. Not only did she help with that tremendously, but she also helped me to see what my passions are and to shake a lot of guilt and other negative emotions I had been dealing with for years. I am definitely a lot healthier after visiting her regularly.
