Having served 10 years in the police force Laura was medically retired and decided to follow her passion for health and fitness.
In 2013 she started a business with her husband Barry Ash called Rock Solid. It started off just changing people’s bodies but they soon realised a direct correlation between changing someone’s mind as well as their body.
Working specially within the fitness industry Rock Solid is known for its mindset and human behaviour coaching which people are drawn to. This industry is becoming more and more focused on the power of the mind with and mental health as we see a rise in emotional eating and other patterns which stop people from being able to actually live the life they want and get the body they want.
Laura has a huge passion for mental health, including emotional and behavioural control as she has experienced these on a massive scale herself.
Rock Solid is now developing and they now train other Personal Trainers.
Having studied the human mind personally and professionally for over 20 years Laura attended a Control Workshop to set to work on her own issues with Emetaphobia.
She soon recognised that by becoming a Control Practitioner she could help more people within her industry.
Since that time Laura has been able to sort other bad patterns that have been running for her like, her fear of water, her relationship with money, and even her fear of spiders, and not feeling that she is enough.
All of these issues have been changed thanks to being able to upgrade her thinking with the Control System.
She has used this with others since being qualified to help a number of issues from emotional eating, anxiety, depression and sports performance issues to alcoholism and issues with public speaking.
"I was recommended Barry and Loz by a work friend. I met with Loz and Baz and I was offered the Control sessions by Loz. These sessions were brilliant. Loz immediately creates a comfortable environment which aids in the process and she is a wonderful person at helping you tap into the sub-conscious and helping guide it to better itself and therefore benefit you as a whole person. I would thoroughly recommend Loz's Control sessions.”

“As you know Laura I have, with your support, achieved and overcome many challenges with regards to my relationship with food, exercise, managing my illness and my overall mind-set. My journey to be kinder to myself whilst challenging my lifestyle choices has come so far already but I had this one last obstacle where I had such an ingrained, almost physical response to comfort and emotional eating. What the Control did for me was help my conscious self become aware of the history of when the behaviour and thought processes around it started, which surprisingly was at a very young age - a lot younger than I had thought!
This for me was the last piece of the emotional jigsaw puzzle and Laura helped me to see parts of my personality that were uncomfortable and unpleasant to accept, however without doing that I would never have overcome the incredibly destructive and uncontrollable urges to eat.
I am finally now in control of my eating and make choices that are based on a positive mind-set and love of food rather than emotion!! I can't thank you enough :-)
I have such a better relationship with food and have even lost weight!! Also much much kinder to myself and needed to go through the 'it's not fair' stage to really come to terms with the changes in my life now especially those that were and are out of my control......I now have control over how I respond to them! Ruddy amazing, thank you thank you thank you!”

Robert - Emotional Eating
"I approached Laura for help in a spiralling out of control alcohol problem. I must admit I was very sceptical about how this would work and was nervous about what it would involve.
On the first session she made me feel relaxed and safe, and assured me that I’d always be aware of what is going on during the session. After spending an hour with Laura if felt extremely elated and was aware of how she talked through the process. I can not explain how this works but it’s like she talks to your problem and then leaves you until the next session.
To sum it all up I had 3 sessions with her and in that time she totally changed my mindset and the problem with the alcohol seemed to have corrected by the power of my own mind with the guidance of Laura. My thoughts on this have been mind blowing it’s a great experience and the tools she applies I have found I can use for other problems like stress and anxiety, I’m so grateful for the professional work Laura performed with me and I totally respect the knowledge of her ability.
Thanks for the great work Laura."
"Thank you for so much help with the fears you have helped me conquer through the control sessions. Amazed and have actually got a great big smile on my face again. I'm running free and without the anxiety. Will be forever grateful! X"

"My experience with Rock Solid has been amazing. Not only is Laura super fun but the results are more than I could have hoped for. In basically a month she helped me untangle and shed habits and beliefs that I have had since I can remember and was convinced I’d be stuck with for life. I even ended up grateful for some of the challenges that comes with my nature and somehow found myself praising myself out loud… Shocking behaviour for me. Also, their cats are epic. Thanks so much everything guys."
"To all that need help in life, well what can I say, I am flabbergasted. My name is Tracy and I have had major cancer twice now. 2 major operations, chemo and radiotherapy. My childhood wasn’t the best and I smoked!!
I can only describe what Laura has done for me in 3 meetings as a miracle, it has taken me back to the point of WOW WOW WOW. I have been to the NHS stop smoking programme for it to only work for a short time and I returned back to smoking. I can however say with a whole excited heart that I will never never smoke again after having this help from Laura it is nothing but amazing. I would recommend this completely and if anyone would like to speak to me I am happy to do so. I can now look forward to a happy smoke free future and had a massive clearing where my childhood is concerned. I will never be able to thank you enough. You are an angel and I am going to recommend you both to my cancer group as I feel the help you could give to people with this could be huge. Do it guys’ you won’t look back!"
