As a busy professional, I wasn’t sure of what to expect, or what to gain, from working with a coach. I was rather sceptical if I’m honest. How could a person who knows so little about you, your life or your business possibly add any value? On reflection, I was so caught up in my own chaos that I don’t think I even realised I had lost my way or that I had reached a natural crossroad in my life. I may not have ever considered a coach before – but I certainly needed one! It was Özlem that guided me back to basics; to revisit those all-important life questions and listen to the answers my body already knew. Her talent for cutting through life’s clutter with astonishing precision was like holding a virtual mirror up to my life. The truth and reality of my status quo was clear to see. Crucially, Özlem didn’t provide me with answers – she posed the right questions that empowered me to reflect, reconsider and reconnect with my own ‘why?’ I was motivated to make genuine, practical steps to return to my ‘thriving zone’. Özlem has ignited a spirit in me that was gradually fading from the pressures of motherhood & working life. Now I feel enthused and excited about the positive changes I am making. I have a clarity of thought that has been absent for years. I’ve been galvanised into action! As for needing a coach? I couldn’t imagine my life without this amazing, cleansing, liberating experience. It’s truly life-changing stuff!
