Meet Leilah Mirza

Leilah Mirza

Background and Path to Therapy

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Leilah had undergone many traumatic experiences in her life and was always looking for someone who could understand her. Though she received counselling, she was dissatisfied with the cognitive-based methods, which she found limiting, and knew that she would one day help others.

‘From a very early age, I recognised that I was highly intuitive, so I could pick up on people’s feelings and the environments I was in. Because of that, I knew I was born to help people discover who they are and help them become their true, aligned selves by shedding light on their lives – by almost detangling things they’ve gone through’.

Therapeutic Approach and Areas of Focus

As a holistic therapist at St. James Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, Leilah focuses on aiding individuals who are struggling with mental health issues stemming from childhood trauma, anxiety, depression and other lifeblocks that persist into adulthood.

By combining various modalities like hypnotherapy, counseling, and EMDR, she tailors her approach to each client’s unique needs. Her intuitive abilities enhance her effectiveness, allowing her to identify and address the blind spots in her clients’ lives, facilitating profound and lasting changes. She finds it rewarding to give people their power back.


Personal Philosophy and Impact

With a commitment to helping her clients unlock their true potential, Leilah focuses on the concept of ‘unsticking’ individuals from ingrained beliefs and traumatic pasts. She believes in the power of reprogramming subconscious beliefs, which often dictate one’s sense of self-worth and potential.

The most fulfilling aspect of her work is witnessing the transformative moment when a client realises their own strength and realigns with their life’s purpose – this reaffirms why she chose this path.

Qualifications and Public Engagement

Leilah’s professional credentials include a Diploma in Counselling from Southampton City College and certifications in hypnotherapy and EMDR from recognised institutions. Her expertise has resonated in one-on-one sessions and has been acknowledged on platforms such as radio and television appearances in Australia and on Sky TV, emphasising her role as a thought leader in holistic therapy.

In her comprehensive approach, Leilah addresses the mind and collaborates closely with other health professionals, such as chiropractors, to ensure that healing encompasses both physical and emotional aspects. This integrated approach underscores her belief in the interconnectivity of mind and body, which is central to her practice at a clinic that emphasises holistic care.

Outside the Practice

In her spare time, Leilah enjoys spending time with her four children, including young twins. She also likes to meditate and take walks in the forest. Reading and listening to podcasts are some other favourite activities.
