My clients are high achievers and often have inspirational stories about the challenges they have overcome in their lives. However, they usually approach me feeling stuck professionally or personally – and often both I have helped my clients drop the "what ifs", achieve life-changing outcomes and become genuinely fulfilled. Examples of changes made include job promotions, career transitions, better work-life balance, creating successful businesses, major relationship decisions, relocating overseas, transformations in social confidence and significant improvements in emotional wellbeing.
I decided to become a coach after I received coaching myself. Coaching helped change the way I think, the way I behave and the way I deal with difficult situations, as well as how I deal with stress, fear and anxiety.
Now I spend my time helping other people do the same. It's all about helping people change their lives and feel good about themselves - and it's something I absolutely love doing.My clients are usually ready, sometimes even desperate for things to change, but don’t know how to make that change happen. That’s where I come in.
I’ve lived and experienced the transformations I help my clients with. Helping people make these changes is what makes me tick. For me it’s not a job - it’s a passion. I love it. That’s what makes me so good at doing this. I work with career and business professionals. My own personal and professional background helps me appreciate the challenges they face and creates an immediate rapport.
If you’re interested in finding out more about how I can help you, just get in touch and we’ll arrange a free two-hour, in-depth, consultation session.
Who I work with
I work with career and business professionals. My own personal and professional background helps me appreciate the challenges they face and creates an immediate rapport. Some examples of typical clients are listed posted below:
- City professionals - such as bankers, lawyers and accountants
- Management consultants
- Marketing professionals
- HR professionals
- Civil Servants
- Small business owners
- Counsellors and Coaches
What To Expect
Initially, we'll have a consultation session of up to two hours. An in-depth session upfront is important as it will help you:
Develop a deeper understanding of the shifts required to enable fundamental, sustainable change
Experience my style of working - we'll do some coaching in the session. This will help you determine whether I'm the right person to help you implement the changes you're looking to make
Gain an appreciation of the logistics involved in working with me - including fees, location, session frequency and the time & commitment required from you
I will work tirelessly to support you in implementing a change in mindset and make genuine long-term, sustainable changes - which will fundamentally alter how you live your life. Where necessary that support will also involve me challenging you or calling you out to help you recognise and overcome old, destructive thought patterns.
If you have a dream, and as much as you would love to make that dream come true you are totally freaked out at the idea of starting to do something to really make it happen…talk to Osman. I’ve had a fear of public speaking my whole adult life (recurring nightmares, palpitations, cold sweats). Working with him was enough to help me commit to myself to taking my first practical steps in the real world. Then the doors really opened. Over the next 12 months I was invited to give a dozen professional talks with my most recent being a 40 minutes inspirational talk to 120 coaches and change-makers at a London summit – and the response was simply humbling! My goal is now to do a TED Talk and become a transformational speaker on the international stage!

"Osman was able to listen to me and understand exactly what was at the root of my general unhappiness and lack of confidence. He helped me learn to address this in a way that has resulted in amazing changes in the way I think and behave. In the process of working with him, I also received great feedback from colleagues on how I seem more confident and, to top it off, got promoted!"
"When talking to Osman I felt completely at ease, at times I have cried, been angry with myself and laughed during a session but would always finish feeling positive about my future and my ability to succeed. After a while I was so much better equipped to deal with work stress and motivated to lead a healthier lifestyle."
"Osman’s coaching has helped me re-evaluate the negative thought processes that were instilled in me which caused my depression, and which have resulted in the fearful way in which I lived life. I am also coping well with some major changes regarding home and work – much better than I would have done so without the right kind of help. I feel like I am back on track with my life, and am keen to further build on a newfound positive sense of self."
Muhammed, HR Professional
"There is only one way to describe Osman – brilliant. In just a few months of having coaching with Osman, I’ve made progress that I thought would take years"

Get in touch to arrange a free in-depth consultation session. If you do want to go ahead after this, I will make you a proposal. My fees depend on a number of factors, including how long we work together and frequency of sessions. They are likely to be significant. My clients will attest to the way working with me has changed their lives. Therefore, an investment will be required from you - financially, but more importantly also with time, commitment and energy.
I provide coaching in person, over Skype/FaceTime and over the phone. For in-person sessions, I work in the City and North-West London.
Is Life Coaching Right For You?
There’s a few key criteria you have to meet for this to work for you:
You have to have made an internal decision that you want things to change
You have to be open-minded to whatever comes up in the coaching relationship
You have to be committed to, and trust, the process. That means putting into practice what you learn in sessions when you’re out in the real world. Change happens through making new behaviours, thought processes and actions a habit. Habit happens by doing something repeatedly. Setbacks are normal. How you respond to them (which will be dictated by your level of commitment) is what’s vital here
You have to be willing to feel uncomfortable. If change was easy, it would have happened already. If you feel uncomfortable, it’s a sign you’re heading in the right direction. Everything you want is on the other side of that discomfort/fear
