Style & confidence coach
What kind of life would you attract with an abundance of self‑love and confidence?
Are you a woman who’s ready to shine from the inside out?
When confidence takes a downward turn and a negative self-attitude gets its teeth into you, it can create problems in every part of your life – from your career, relationships and health to spirituality and friendships.
It can make you withdraw from the world and disappear from your own life. You may start to develop an unhealthy attitude to food as you try to appease the inner critic. Maybe your way of coping is to disconnect and become numb.
But what if you could move towards self-love? What if you were empowered, inspired and energised by what you see in the mirror?
No matter what stage you’re at, my style & confidence coaching can help you find your way back to yourself and connect with your inner beauty – to become the magnetic woman you were meant to be.
I’ll guide you to cultivate confidence, magnify your wellbeing and express yourself through style to manifest your wildest dreams.
I’m here to support you on your journey and help you shine.
I found a way not to just live… but to thrive, prosper and shine as my authentic self.
Life was not always this way for me. Nine years ago, I had what seemed like a cool life on the outside. But on the inside I was craving for healing.
I had an addictive personality, continually searching for perfection whilst at the same time being extremely hard on myself.
For many years I was living a life of complete misery, sadness, and a loss of connection. I was starving myself and bent on self-destruction.
Until one day I decided I couldn’t go on living like this anymore.
I finally stopped trying to be someone else. I began to explore my wardrobe more, and used style as a way to express myself on my terms. I embraced being authentic rather than trying to fit into a box or others’ expectations of me. I stopped following trends and reading fashion magazines.
I connected the dots between self love, wellbeing, energy, confidence and style.
Now my mission is to help other women put an end to their negative self-image. I’ve created She’s Magnetic – a coaching programme especially for women like you, to help you cultivate confidence and express yourself through your own authentic style.

My journey to confidence
How going deeper helped me discover true beauty
I truly believe in the power of style to bring out the best version of yourself.
After graduating from London College of Fashion & Central St Martins and a career in the fashion industry, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery which took me around the world. I studied various healing practices in USA, Asia and Europe Australia and Indonesia.
As I traveled I learnt more about nutrition, self care, yoga, meditation and eventually myself, which nourished me emotionally, physically and mentally.
And as I went deeper on my journey, I also explored the way I dressed and my self image. And I began to realise that it was all a reflection of how I was feeling inside.
I realised style and yoga are both self love practices, that help us to regularly cleanse, express, and make space for our true selves to shine.
Today I am a style and confidence coach, published author and certified yoga instructor.
As a keynote speaker I am hired for events as a Style & Wellness Expert to deliver talks on self-love, confidence, energy, wellbeing and style.
I hold retreats internationally to cultivate self-love, build confidence, magnify well being and style, ultimately becoming the best version of oneself through daily dynamic workshops, yoga and meditation.
My book, Boney & I, is available on Amazon.
I found myself in quite a negative place a few months ago, emotionally and mentally I felt stuck and I had zero confidence in myself, what I was trying to do or my ability to do it.
Following her advice and with her support I am now in a much better place. I no longer feel limited by my own beliefs, and have so much more confidence. I have been so much more positive and productive and am excited for what the future has in store.
I was feeling at a low point in my life due to my menopause, having gained weight and needing to assist in a conference in Las Vegas. At first I didn’t feel that any clothes would look right on my body shape, but I ended up buying three different outfits. However, the most important thing is that Lou helped me to gain the confidence to be who I am and to feel attractive at my heavier weight. Thanks so much Lou for your continued support and inspiration.
I never thought another woman could help me find the beauty within myself until working with Lou Stokes. Like many, I was overwhelmed by negative internal conversations regarding my appearance. With the media over-saturating and manipulating us to believe in their ideologies of beauty, having Lou as a support has been invaluable. She has guided me in cultivating the most important love story, which is that with myself.
Lou’s approach is unique. She made me realize that absolutely everything has to do with the relationship we have with ourselves. My life has changed radically since I started the program. I feel more connected to myself, who I am and what I want in my life. Apart from many other things it has taught me to respect myself and be faithful to who I am and what I desire. I have finally embarked on my own self love journey from the inside out.
