Hi, I’m Laura Carr from Ireland and have been living & calling Dubai my home for the past six years with my husband Phil and 3 children, Ava, Lola & Ben.
I am a certified Associate Coach and member of the ICF (International Coaching Federation), Mindset Coach and Meditation Teacher. I am also a Certified Advanced Reiki Master & Practitioner and Crystal Therapist. I am a student of Transcendental Meditation, as taught by the David Lynch Foundation, and trained in the Emotional Freedom Technique.
For the past 9 years I have worked personally on my life & spiritual growth… through Meditation and Authentic Living, committing to my inner work, listening to my heart, exploring numerous workshops and courses that aligned with my core values and true purpose. Choosing Love over Fear, listening to my inner voice over my limiting beliefs and showing up daily with a determination and commitment to living my best life, I have been able to transform my life & my mindset.
And I want to help you to do the same.
Within my one on one coaching program you’ll get individualized support to gain the clarity, freedom, and the personalized guidance you need to get into action and begin to live a life you really love. I incorporated all elements I have learnt into my coaching practice to support your mind, body and soul.
Every day I’m inspired by others and through my own work I aim to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to be the best possible version of yourself.
On a personal note, I am obsessed with green smoothies, and have no sense of direction. You’ll most likely find me on my down time with my head in a cookbook, cooking healthy, vibrant nourishing meals for my family and friends. I love working out with friends and practicing yoga (even if my head stand still resembles a banana, no judgement….still a work in progress). On a daily basis you’ll find me navigating my way around Dubai for my children’s social & sporting life! For me life is all about balancing and tuning in to our own mind, body, and soul.
I look so forward to meeting you

A few words from some of Laura’s clients:
”I have just completed Laura’s 8 week awakening programme, along with a couple of magical Reiki sessions. I can honestly say she has transformed my life! She has suggested so many strategies to put into place, little things that really have had a huge impact on my outlook on life. I feel calmer and more present, and finally feel like I am really starting to connect with myself. Instead of worrying about what the future holds, I now feel very optimistic. Thank you Laura for your amazing guidance, and your lovely attitude to life, on every level. I look forward to continuing this journey with you xx” – Julia
”Before I started seeing Laura I was feeling very lost and overwhelmed which was a new experience for me, I wasn’t sure how I had got to the situation that I found myself in. My health was suffering and this was affecting all areas of my life. Laura was very calming and really helped me reconnect with myself and look into why I felt the way that I did. I knew when I first met her that she would help me get to where I need to be. Since really looking into and listening to myself I have made small changes which have made a massive impact on my life – my energy has changed which in turn has led to bigger changes with really positive outcomes. I know that Laura will say that I did all of the hard work myself but I couldn’t have done it without her. My life really has changed for the better and truly thanks to Laura the only way is up!” – Laura H
”When I first met Laura, I was having a hard time both emotionally and physically. I went to get some relief through Reiki practice, and came out with so much more!
Not only did she calm my aches with her reiki practice but she opened up again a part of me that has been dormant for a while, mindfulness. In her own distinctive way, she reinforced the knowledge within me and paired it up with new points of view that just eased their way into my everyday life. And as I practice everyday my mindfulness, some of my gratitude will always be sent her way ” – Ghida
”Over the past couple of years, I’ve connected to amazing people in order to become far more self-aware and mindful and have seen huge positive shifts in my life as a result. However, In May of this year, I reached a point where there were just so many changes in my life which I was just not prepared for emotionally. I was so busy keeping everyone else afloat I’d somehow neglected myself amongst it all, I think I described it to Laura as feeling like I was living a life in limbo and having lost my ‘mojo’. I knew I that I needed to take all the positives out of the situation but felt a bit lost as to how to get to where I needed to be. A dear friend recommended I speak to Laura, trusting that friend so much I knew I didn’t even need to have Laura talk me through her coaching program as I instinctively knew that she’d be perfect and signed up for her 8-week coaching program without even meeting her.
Before I had my first session I was asked to fill out some questionnaires, they were excellent as they actually set the premise for the first meeting and gave me confidence that there was value in the sessions, it probably subconsciously had me in the right mindset when I had my first session too. Laura has such a lovely genuine manner and I had absolute trust in her which enabled me to be quite raw and vulnerable. Just after one session I felt lighter and was so pleased to be doing something for myself. What’s important to realise when you sign up for a coaching program is that Laura or any coach is not going to ‘fix you’ you need to take full responsibility yourself to make a change, that’s why the 8 session program was perfect as I was held accountable each week and it worked. All the little things I was given to do each time has meant The Wheel of Life that we began with took on major changes within that time which has resulted in me feeling so very positive and excited about my future. When I say little things they really were and as a result, I didn’t feel overwhelmed by her program instead I was so very grateful that with each change I made I was able to see the benefit immediately.
What is so special about Laura is that she isn’t delivering an off the shelf solution she’s so very authentic and gets who you are perhaps helped by the fact that she also has a more spiritual side to her which makes for the most awesome combination of coaching skills. Her Reiki sessions were just phenomenal as to was her guidance in mediation. I have found my days are just so so much better when I come from a position of gratitude and set the right intentions. I knew this but what I was doing was lapsing so this program has got me into some really good habits which have stuck. The way I speak to people and the way I see situations is so very different now and since finishing the program I have signed up for more individual sessions as I realise that looking after my mind is just as important as looking after my body!
Laura is exceptionally talented and gifted and just a beautiful person inside and out, I would say that everyone needs a Laura in their life as she really has been instrumental in turning mine around and I feel so very blessed to have had the opportunity to be coached by Laura.” – Paula
