About me

Whether you are an individual looking to level up, or a leader keen to improve the performance, communication and wellbeing of your team, I am here to help you achieve that with ease, intention and confidence!
And we do this in a holistic and human way- guided by ‘strategy’ and fuelled by ‘heart’.

I have been a DISC accredited and qualified Executive Coach and Trainer for a decade, working with hundreds of clients from headteachers to senior analysts, from business managers to scientists and delivered more than ten thousand hours of coaching and coaching-related training to diverse teams. So yes! I have been around for a while. And my unique perspective stems from blending long-term work experience and knowledge of public, private and charity sectors. 

In the last decade I have gone through my own transformation and now bring even more presence, knowledge and wisdom to my coaching. 

The following are the key areas I specialise in:

. Conscious Leadership

. Conscious Life Design

. Effective Communication

. Emotional Intelligence

. Career Development

. Team Development

. Healthy Living and Wellbeing


Below are a few examples of results I help my clients achieve. Please also see the recommendations on my LinkedIn profile or visit my website for testimonials:

- Embrace transformation instead of fearing it

- Plan and act strategically and with ease

- Improved confidence

- Improved self-image

- Become an effective communicator

- Increase influence at work for promotion and other opportunities

- Get skilled in giving and receiving feedback

- Get better at developing others

- Boost team engagement and motivation

- Create a culture of high performance and accountability

- Adopt a healthier lifestyle for a more energised and stronger you

Supporting you to connect with your self- esteem, to navigate your internal world so you can set conscious goals with ease and to be productive while in flow, are my ultimate goals. I also really enjoy teaching people how best to nurture professional relationships.

We are not here to be confused, stuck and anxious. It is quite the opposite.

I would love for you to visit my website- conscious-lifedesign.com. If you resonate with what you see there and if examples of some of the results you can achieve by coaching with me intrigue you, please get in touch.
We begin with a Clarity Call to identify the main challenges you face and the results you would like to achieve. If we both feel we are a good fit, we will plan your road map, and start.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Further information

I absolutely love coaching and helping people reconnect with their strengths, skills, passion and resilience. We all have the capacity to take action and create success with joy. Below are a few examples of feedback from my clients:

"If you’re looking for a coach, look no further! Özlem and I instantly clicked, I immediately felt comfortable and confident in her company. She provided me with a great understanding of myself and the wider business world in a relatively short period. I noticed a big difference in my ability to break down tasks and deliver beyond expectation, as well as being motivated to develop my career. Özlem is very passionate about coaching, great to talk to and always around if you need anything outside of the structured time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Özlem to anyone for coaching and training." 
James Bashford- Business Development Manager

"Meeting Özlem was a major highlight.  She is extremely talented at coaching - humbly supportive, encouraging, down to earth and non - judgemental.  I defined numerous challenging goals with Özlem’s guidance and was able to achieve a lot during the process! I got a new job exactly as I wanted and with the salary I was aiming for. I met my fitness targets. Most importantly, coaching changed the way I think; now I set more specific and precise goals for myself and I am always questioning what it is that I want, right now and for the future. I have more of a sense of direction. It was a great experience. I am very lucky that I had this brilliant opportunity!" 
Jessica Berton- Associate Director, Compliance Advisory

"It has been an absolute pleasure to have Özlem as my coach. She is professional and easy to talk to. She is always positive and her energy shines through anything she does. I noticed changes even after our 1st session of coaching. Being a young entrepreneur, I have faced many challenges to start my business, but the entire process of setting goals and achieving them week after week brought focus and balance to my personal and professional life as well as noticeably improving my communication skills and my self-esteem. Özlem helped me recognise and celebrate the positive and overcome the obstacles. Feedback from her enabled me to notice recurring themes and patterns in my life so that I can consider new choices and think of ‘out of the box’ solutions. In particular the sessions have helped me examine issues I might normally prefer to ignore or avoid, which usually would block my progress. The process enabled me to clarify my values, my mission in life and my gifts, to reassess my life, redefine success, set new goals, overcome challenges, create better balance in my life and build confidence. Özlem was on my side at all times and stood for me being all that I can be."
Komal Sable- Business Development Manager

"Özlem is a remarkable coach who can help people professionally and personally.  She is deeply committed to helping people on their life journey without judgement.  She will teach you to relish the task of finding a better version of yourself! She supported me at a time in my career when I felt uncertain. Özlem is honest and direct - a style I like, as I have little patience with pretence.  I surprised myself by realising that I wasn't committed to the path I was on because it wasn't the right path! Özlem challenged me to think deeply about my goals, the things holding me back, and my motivation to improve. Even when the truth was uncomfortable, she did not shy away from holding me to account for my actions and priorities."  Luke Bridges, Headteacher

"Özlem has the ability to guide any professional into identifying their strengths and values and how to approach challenging situations. She is very easy to work and her methodology is very effective as it is based on identifying clear goals and setting up a path to reach them. She has a strong business acumen while being emotionally intelligent which was a real asset for me. I would recommend Özlem for any training and coaching." 
Yasmine Abbas- Senior Customer Success Manager

"Özlem has been a great collaborator and coach and has helped me in assessing a number of areas from career road map, to communication and work style. She's also completely flexible to your needs, very approachable and has a raft of techniques which really help in understanding your own style and achieving your goals. I would recommend Özlem to anyone needing to jump start their career or simply looking at making a change in the way they do things." 
Christine Baltas- Business Development Leader

"During my personal growth and transformation process, I went through a number of obstacles and challenges.  With Özlem’s support my transformation was easier and faster. She helped me manifest a strong mindset and a positive self image. Without her support my time and energy would be wasted on sleepless nights."
