My life had reached a deep, dark low; so dark in fact that I had considered ending it all.

I am Laura Fourie

This is my story

I would like to share my story with you, it is one that I am so profoundly grateful for in my life right now.
While I may not be perfect, I am now free of cravings, have totally changed my lifestyle and eating habits and I feel happier in my own skin.

But I wasn’t always like this.

My life had reached a deep, dark low; so dark in fact that I had considered ending it all. I was driving home one day, saw the opportunity to see this through and as I was about to seize it, when I had a vision that flashed so bright off to my left that I just couldn’t ignore it.

It was a vision of a wolf and her cub looking out at me from the edge of a forest.

The mere action of the double take that I took and the time I spent fathoming what had just happened, was enough to short circuit my plans and to almost stop me in my tracks. We didn’t have wolves in New Zealand, I was staring into a cliff-face so there was no bush-line to speak of and yet it was so vivid that I couldn’t discount it as “all in my imagination”.

This was real. This has just happened. But what did it all mean?

It took the 20-minute drive home for me to conclude that I was on the wrong path in life; that somehow, I had gone so far off-track, that I was no longer where I needed to be. I knew that I needed to leave my relationship even though we had just bought a house together, and that I needed to make some serious changes in my life, but I truly had no idea where to start.

It took me four long, challenging years to get to where I am now, four years of not having the answers, the guidance, the understanding, or the know-how of achieving what I wanted to achieve. I knew that I had to make some changes, and I noticed that when I didn’t listen to my intuition, my body would react in a negative way: migraines, depression, weight-gain. I realised that my body was guiding my healing and that it was now time that I started to listen to it.

For me, my health journey was a step-by-step process that was both challenging and so extremely rewarding too:

  • I ended my relationship with my partner
  • I sold my share of our house
  • I became a vegetarian
  • I changed jobs
  • I quit alcohol
  • I quit coffee
  • I removed Wheat and Dairy from my diet
  • I released excessive baggage and clutter from my life
  • I started to search for my Purpose, my reason for being here
  • And I began to make healthier choices in every aspect of my experience

And here I am now, in a happy, healthy and loving relationship where I feel amazing in my own skin, living my life as a lighter, brighter, happier, healthier version of myself.

I didn’t have a coach, a mentor, or any support system through this part of my life. I would spend hours in tears and frustration, and anger and resentment towards my life circumstances and was crying out for help and assistance, but there was none to be found.

It is my mission now to provide you with this service. To use my own experiences, to guide you through my fail-safe process, to support you and hold that future version of yourself that we create together, at the forefront of all our coaching and to be there by your side as we take the small steps in the right direction to achieve your goals and to become a ‘lighter, brighter, healthier you’.
