Welcome

I’m honoured you’re here

Welcome, I’m Özlem, the Founder of Spirit of Womankind. I created this lifestyle brand and online portal for women seeking the kind of empowerment and inner confidence that comes from knowing your true self and finding meaning and purpose in your life.

 

I have been working with women in the intersection of self-leadership, spirituality and self-care since 2012. My body of work is in service of women who are ready to usher in a period of transformation and be purpose-led – seeking to pivot their business, their career, and their life, in alignment with their true self.

 

Having gone through my own life and career changes, I know first-hand how it feels to get to a cross-roads in llife and not know which way to turn. Having the right tools to navigate these situations will not only help you get through it, but it will also help you connect deeper to your truth so that you can live a life that is true to your spirit. Beneath discomfort lies deeper connection, knowing and ultimately a freedom and empowerment that can only come from knowing yourself.

 

I completed my Bachelor of Business from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), and worked as a Certified Practising Accountant (CPA). I spent over 15 years in the world of Corporate Accounting and Global Project Management. I led a busy and successful career that allowed me to travel the world, but deep down I felt excruciatingly empty, unfulfilled in my career and devoid of my true purpose. I knew that I had more to offer and I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world, especially for women and girls. I also knew that if I didn’t pause and pivot, I never would and I would end up stuck in a life that wasn’t truly mine – and I would end up having lived a life that wasn’t true to my spirit.

 

I left my Corporate Acccounting career and completed formal studies in several coaching modalities, and eastern mysticism. I founded Spirit Of Womankind to be in service of empowering women from the inside-out. I work with women who are in pursuit of a meaningful and fulfilling life, and who want to lead their life from within. My approach infuses timeless spiritual philosophies with modern coaching modalities, positive psychology and design principles and creative strategies. My work is a judgement-free zone, it is steeped in compassion, a soft-yet-strong approach.

 

As an aunty to two adorable girls I am passionate about supporting women and girls to claim their self-worth and believe in themselves. Many of us are conditioned to be good girls and so we grow up being what we think others want us to be – we feel estranged from ourselves and often lose ourselves in the plight of pleasing others. Recovering from this requires work, and it’s necessary work to uncover the true beauty and unique gifts that each of us have – uncovering these gifts is one step, and then finding ways to share our gifts with the world is the next ….this is what allows us to live true to our spirit and be of service to others in a way that is empowering, fulfilling and meaningful.

 

I’m particularly passionate about self-care and I truly believe it plays a pivotal role in helping women make empowered choices in their lives as it relates to self-esteem and self-respect.

 

Through Spirit Of Womankind, I share research, resources, products and online programs to inspire, guide and support women to design a business and life that is fueled by purpose, so that they can live true to their spirit.

 

I also head up my own consulting practice for women…

…where I help women infuse their business and life with purpose, and help them to design their next chapter with purpose. I work exclusively with women in private 1-1 sessions – it’s a high-touch, high-end transformational experience and trusted partnership.

 

My clients are typically successful women who have reached a point in their business and working life where they are ready to move into their next chapter and they’re asking what’s next? My work helps them to align to their purpose (it’s not about finding it, but rather aligning to it, because it’s already there – you already know deep down) When we’re purpose-led and leading from within our work becomes a natural extension of ourselves – it’s authentic – and we build the unique body-of-work we are wired to build and serve the people we are meant to serve.
