Are you feeling overwhelmed, stagnant, stuck, and like you have nothing left to give?
You may be languishing.
According to American sociologist and psychologist Corey Keyes, languishing is one of the early indicators of burnout.
It’s crucial to recognise the warning signs early and take preventive measures.
Our personalised wellbeing coaching program empowers multicultural women with tools and strategies to overcome languishing and prevent burnout so they can flourish in every aspect of their careers and lives.
Özlem's work has been invaluable in getting clear and focussed on my personal and professional goals. She is intuitive, knowledgeable, warm and practical. These qualities have been pivotal in opening and informing a path for me that aligns my strengths with my spirit. It is impossible to put in words the effect of Özlem's work has on your whole life until you have experienced it. If you are ready to move aside the roadblocks and think of your life in a new light, I wholly recommend taking the journey with Özlem and seeing where it takes you.
How can I tell if I am languishing?
Languishing is often hard to describe, which is why it can be easily overlooked. When languishing is left unaddressed, it can lead to burnout - it's important to recognise and address it. Researchers have identified the following as some of the key indicators of languishing:
Feeling empty, stagnant, bored, stuck, or uninterested in your activities or work
Experiencing a lack of motivation or energy to pursue your goals or be your best self
Having trouble focusing or being productive
Feeling disconnected from others or experiencing a sense of loneliness
Feeling unfulfilled or lacking a sense of purpose
Having a low sense of self
Struggling with negative thoughts or emotions such as anxiety or sadness
Experiencing high levels of stress
Our wellbeing coaching programs use the latest wellbeing science and proven strategies to help you understand why you feel the way you do. We then design culturally appropriate positive psychology interventions to help you get unstuck and move forward confidently.
Flourish with personalised and culturally responsive strategies
We draw on the latest research in wellbeing science, use proven strategies and tailor the program to your unique circumstances and culture.
We use the following proven models and strategies to help you flourish:
Keyes' (2002) Mental Health Continuum
Evidence-based strategies from Ryff's (1989) Psychological Wellbeing Model and
Ryan and Deci's (2000) Self-Determination Theory and Basic Psychological Needs.
Your coach will co-design a personalised and culturally appropriate program to help you overcome languishing, prevent burnout and create a life that aligns with what you value, so that you can flourish.

From Languishing to Flourishing
The topics listed offer a framework and act as a guide. Your program will be tailored to your needs, lifestyle and cultural background.
From Languishing to Flourishing
In our first meeting, we'll discuss your completed wellbeing assessment to set clear goals for your program. Your progress through the program will be tracked on a personal wellbeing dashboard.
Sense of Self & Belonging
You have a unique identity, shaped by culture, gender, and other experiences. We celebrate these parts of you to boost your self-confidence and belonging. Our goal is to unlock your full potential and wellbeing by embracing every aspect of who you are.
Mastering your Environment
Our program boosts your self-belief. This means handling challenges confidently and flexibly. Strengthening this aspect of yourself will help you deal with challenges, tackle tough situations and reach your goals.
Research-Based & Co-Designed
We use proven and culturally responsive strategies tailored to your needs, lifestyle, and background to create a personalised and impactful program together.
Our approach centres on Ryan and Deci's Self-Determination Theory (2000), focusing on 3 needs: feeling capable, connected, and empowered through autonomy. By nurturing these, we help you to make desired changes in your life that lead to personal growth and reaching your potential.
Blueprint to Your Potential
We’ll create a personal plan for your best self. Your plan has practical steps and strategies to continue your growth once the coaching is complete.

I am so happy to have you as my coach and really value all the help you have given over the past few months. I appreciate your communication style and holistic approach to coaching. I felt you really listened and understood me and my point of view which is why I was able to connect with you on many levels.
Through our conversations and diagnostics I now have a better understanding of my strengths - where, how and how much to use them. You helped me look at things differently which has changed my perspective on myself and the world. I feel more confident about myself and my work, and this is evident in how I have been handling stressful situations at work lately. I feel that working with you has transformed the way I think about things/career/life in general. It has encouraged me to be pro-active about shaping/driving my future.
I actually discovered my passion project in one of our sessions and have successfully taken my first step towards it – something I thought I would do in my 60s I am doing it now!
If I could summarise in one sentence what I think is the most important thing about working with you is that “you get it”. You always knew what I was talking about and just exactly what I needed.

Özlem's work 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! It’s truly life-changing stuff!
