About Me
Who is Lani?
Empowerment & Soul Coach
I use a blend of methodologies, some more traditional and others more spiritual, as I believe we need a balance between the two to centre ourselves at the same time as walking with purpose in the direction of our dreams
"The worst part is that the very thing that holds us back is often invisible to us, keeping us frustrated and confused.”
Quote by Mark Wolynn in the book ‘It Didn’t start with you'

My Story

Hi beautiful soul, I’m Alana- but my people call me Lani. I live in Geelong (Australia) on Wadawurrung land, with my husband and daughter. For the past almost 7 years I have worked in Human Resources, coaching leaders on how to best support their teams, along with looking after their own wellbeing.

I absolutely love supporting clients to discover their true selves (what I like to call, Inner Guide), and this is what drew me to Human Resources, and now to coaching in general. Other things that make my heart sing are: writing (poetry, mostly), reading, dancing, and learning – I’ve always got another course on the go!

I began Coach Lani after struggling with finding my own truth within an upbringing that placed so many ‘traditional’ expectations upon my shoulders. Coming out the other side, truly liberated and free to be ME, I can now see with clarity how many others are struggling with this same internal fight.

I believe that when we find something that has helped us heal and step into our power that little bit more, then it’s our divine gift to pass this on to other souls who need it.

My intention is to be the Soul Guide that I wish I had in my corner. I am here to hold your hand while we journey deep within your truest self…your Inner Guide.

You already have all of the answers within you, they are just hidden underneath layers of expectation and people pleasing. Together, we gently peel back each layer until we uncover the true you. Welcome to liberation and here’s to being the BOSS of your own life!

From the moment I met Lani her natural genuine authenticity emanated into my heart. As well as living and breathing being the BOSS of her own life. Lani embodies deeply a dedication to truth within her presence, commitment to growth and dedication to clients’ deep and sustainable transformation. Every step of the way she is becoming an even more remarkable and compassionate coach, creating a safe and nurturing environment for clients to discover their soul’s truth, empowerment, purpose and voice.

Lani is a kind, genuine, empathetic coach who knows how to get the best of out of people. She was able to guide me through a process that uncovered a block left over from childhood that was stopping me from moving forward. I highly recommend Lani to help you achieve your goals.

Shirley Mathew

Lani just has an energy of ease and flow and I felt that in my session with her. I felt safe and comfortable enough for my inner child to come in and I received the most magical gift through her guidance that is helping me build my business today! It was the comfort of being with an old friend and from that place, healing just flowed.

Susannah Panneflek

Had a beautiful online coaching experience with Coach Lani. Was feeling depressed and very down, low on self worth due to some repeating self sabotaging pattern in my life. She lead me beautifully in a meditation to uncover the root causes of this pattern deep inside my wounded soul. This has helped me to start with the internal healing process of these patterns, but also felt immediately much better, lighter and with more self love. Highly recommend Coach Lani.

Chris Carder

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Coaching Sessions with Alana, She is a really perceptive and compassionate person who truly has a heart of gold and kindness and empathy shine through, I have really felt a genuine connection right from the start with Alana which has made it very comfortable to be able to talk freely. Alana has a very warm and welcoming smile and a generous personality which is evident when you meet her. I had the pleasure of 9 wonderfully constructive and powerfully meaningful coaching sessions spread over several months in 2022 which has helped me move from feeling uncertain and lacking confidence and hiding behind shame and uncertainty to where I now have definitely moved forward more hopeful for the future with
more clarity to where I am going and with greater confidence in myself. I can reflect warmly about our time together, recalling her gentle and caring approach as Alana helped me to look deeper into my heart and helped me search my inner being, for which I am so thankful and appreciative. I have no hesitation in recommending Alana’s services, she is an outstanding coach which is a special gift, the care she demonstrates for the individual while she is coaching is evident and her ability to help me drop into my inner being was profound and so beneficial. So to all who utilise Alana’s services you are in for a treat as you pursue your journey as Alana will be able to provide great help and care for you.

My session with Lani made me feel relaxed and comfortable. It was such a lovely experience being guided by Lani and it left me feeling at peace and rejuvenated. I highly recommend if you are looking or a fresh take on spending time on you.
