Sobia Iqbal (Dip.TC & NLP) - Purpose, Wellbeing & Performance Coach
I support people with three fundamental areas of life: Purpose, Wellbeing and Performance - the ‘PWP Coaching Method.’
When these three aspects come together in powerful alignment, I have the privilege of witnessing those I serve soaring to the next level in any area of life.
Purpose- A clear ‘north star’ guiding your life choices and decisions. Living in alignment with your values. Greater levels of connectivity, contribution, fulfillment as well as meaning.
Wellbeing- wellness in every aspect of life: emotional, physical, social (relationships), spiritual, intellectual, career and environment. This is the all important foundation that all else is built upon. Without the right ‘wellbeing environment and conditions’ living a high performance life on purpose can be very challenging.
Performance- specifically ‘high performance’ is all about working smarter not harder. Working in a way where you get consistent results that are sustainable i.e. without the burnout, stress and potential negative impact on mental and physical health.
This holistic approach to life and business focuses on creating harmony and balance, propelling your wellbeing, sense of meaning and success to the next level.

Training, qualifications & experience
My own wonderful personal transformation journey began in 2013, when I trained with the Animas Centre for Coaching in London on their 'Diploma in Transformation Coaching.'
It sparked a personal growth journey that not only transformed my own life but positively impacts my friends, family and community. This journey has led me to the point where I am lucky to work with and support people full time as a self-employed coach, trainer and consultant.
My training with Animas is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Association for Coaching. I am a qualified Personal Transformation Coach, Relationship Coach and Group Coach & Facilitator.
Upon formally completing my training, mandatory coaching hours and formal assessment in 2015, I initially utilised my coaching skills in my decade long successful corporate career as a Business Development/Bid Manager. Here I was fortunate enough to put into practice daily my coaching skills; whether that be 1:1, team meetings or when facilitating & coaching large groups in workshops. Coaching played a big part in my success as a team member, project manager and leader.
During my corporate career, I also qualified as a Business Coach with the Institute of Leadership and Management. I received coaching from a senior leadership team/ board member as part of their ‘Talent Development Programme’.
Alongside my corporate career, I continued to coach people outside of work/ in my spare time to ensure I kept my life coaching skills sharp.
I am committed to continuous professional development and am a self-confessed lifelong avid learner. It then comes as no surprise that I added to my coaching toolbox by training as a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and other therapies in 2016.
Most recently (January 2018) I successfully completed the 'Virtual Coach' training programme significantly adding proven approaches to my coaching toolkit as well as developing my marketing and business skills.
I love personal and professional development by way of: researching, reading and learning about new approaches and ideas in coaching and in other fields. I regularly attend weekend coaching supervisory and CPD events throughout the year: Coaching Connections Birmingham (runs monthly) and NLP Practice Group (3 times per year).

I am a results focused coach and am seeking coaching clients who are committed to the collaboration, discovery and change process.
“Sobia’s non-judgmental nature quickly made me feel at ease and enabled me to be completely open during our sessions. When I began working with her I was embarking on a new journey with lots of possibilities, her support helped me to focus and confidently move towards the things I wanted to to be doing rather than those I felt I should be doing. Her big picture approach and deep questioning highlighted recurring behaviours I hadn’t previously spotted, then to identify the triggers and positive ways to approach them in similar situations. I would absolutely recommend Sobia as a coach, the experience was an extremely positive one.” ~ Nicola, London.
“Sobia is a warm supportive coach who honours the client completely creating a safe, non-judgmental space in which to explore important issues. In addition, Sobia has wisdom, high intelligence, valuable life experience and a calm presence. I have found working with Sobia constructive and enabling. I feel more confident about my project design skills and have also gained useful insights about mapping my values to my goals. I recommend Sobia unreservedly.” ~ Jane, Shetland Islands
"I was coached by Sobia during four very interesting coaching sessions. I enjoyed her perseverance in asking me the difficult questions and most importantly, the right ones for the purpose of our discussion. She has an inquisitive mind and a great ability to connect the dots. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for their purpose in life, for a change or improvement of their life or for getting to know themselves better." ~ Cristina, Romania
