Hi, I am Özlem. I am a DISC accredited, qualified and experienced Executive and Career Coach.
I have been a coach and a mentor for more than a decade and have been a full- time coach and soft skills trainer for 7 years now, after receiving my coaching qualification from the Coaching Academy. I have delivered more than ten thousand hours of coaching and coaching-related training, have had hundreds of clients and great results to date. I have worked with professionals from technology, finance, insurance, education, law, science and more…
I am passionate about and committed to my clients’ professional performance and of course their well-being. When you work with me your leadership, career progression and how effectively you communicate with others would be at the centre of our work.
I want you to get the best of your work hours and stop seeing work as ‘just work’ but as a meaningful and joyful ‘career’ you shape. Supporting you in maximising your productivity, potential and career opportunities are my top priorities while teaching you how best to nurture professional relationships.
Together, we focus on making sure you become more visible for the results you bring to your organisation. We would make sure you can communicate more effectively to increase your influence and play a bigger role in making the vision of your company come true whilst advancing your career in a purposeful manner.
Coaching gives people the space and the time to reflect through being asked the right questions. It does help people become wiser and more aware leaders. I would like to help as many people as possible, to genuinely enjoy their time at work and grow while doing that. Life is too short to live without joy.
If the above speaks to you, please get in touch.

to support motivation, resilience and well-being!
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 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
"The coaching sessions I had with Özlem were immensely helpful to my personal development. Setting goals, defining milestones and working within timescales have worked very well for me. Working towards goals enhanced my quality of life. Özlem helped me identify my qualities and strengths and supported me to articulate them. The coaching process worked very well with her help as a strong, disciplined mirror. Thank you so much Özlem for all your support."
