Uppy was created after I experienced first-hand the effects that a highly driven mindset and lifestyle could have on the body. I put on weight (even though my health and fitness regime hadn’t changed), I had periods of extreme fatigue, low mood, anxiety, my monthly cycles were non-existent, my digestion was shot with constant unexplained bloating and my brain was consistently foggy. This obviously put a great deal of physical and emotional strain on me, and directly impacted my life, both personally and professionally. I felt like a failure, even though I’d given it my all.

My road to understanding began when I opened my first business and then watched it burn down – literally! I actually stood in front of the building and watched it crumble to the ground. Safe to say I’d reached my lowest point. For years I’d dedicated my life to my work – I was so busy trying to be the best and get to the top that I’d completely lost sight of who I was and what was important to me. I’d become stuck in a vicious cycle of trying to be who I thought I ‘should’ be, rather than staying true to myself and what I really wanted.

I knew I needed to break free as it was seriously effecting my health, but I had no idea where to start. So I embarked upon a journey of discovery to find out. Subsequently, by gaining deeper insight into my own personal experiences of working through body issues, perfectionism, self-sabotage, over-working and trauma (to name a few!) and marrying them with my professional experiences of working successfully with hundreds of clients, managing teams and building businesses, I now have a unique perspective on all the factors that can affect our health and indeed our lives, and the solutions needed to not overcome them…for good.

Yours in Uppyness, Laura
