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 had a fear of public speaking throughout my whole adult life (recurring nightmares, palpitations, cold sweats), even though I’ve had over 20 years of experience in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur. In the type of work that I now do as a Women's Business Coach and founder of a business community, that fear isn’t overly helpful.

So, I thought it would be really useful to be able to speak at events and share my message with a wider audience. I got really familiar with the theory behind public speaking. However, I was still absolutely terrified at the idea of putting any of it into practice and I spent too long avoiding actually doing something.

I took my topic of "I want to do public speaking but I'm terrified" to Osman. Working with him was enough to help me commit to myself to taking some 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. Working with Osman opened up an amazing door, one which until that moment had been there 'in theory', but I had not been able to open, or even find the courage to take hold of the handle. He helped me take the scary steps in actually beginning to make that dream a reality!

I sought coaching after a difficult period in my life. My lifestyle had becoming increasingly characterised by fear and avoidance. I was struggling at work – I was unsure of myself and my self-confidence was waning fast. My home life was suffering. I had an extremely vulnerable state of mind.

I knew I needed to change - that was very clear. But I wasn’t sure how. After some research, I decided to look into coaching. It was the first time in my life I had considered this. My aim was to re-ignite my life, to accept and tackle head-on the trials and tribulations that come to us all, and to 'take off the hand-break' and gain the courage to embark upon new experiences and adventures. In a sentence, to bring myself out of my shell.

My choice of Osman was influenced by his appreciation of the impact of culture and heritage in life choices of British Asians, and his openness about his own difficulties in life. From our first meeting, I found Osman easy to relate to and down to earth. He has given me time and space to think through the choices I was making in life. He was not afraid to cut to the chase on difficult topics, yet do so with empathy and compassion.

Whilst working with him, I experienced the potent and liberating effect of being able to voice, in a safe environment, my fears and anxieties, and to explore my dreams. For the first time in my life, I felt at ease talking about my vulnerabilities. Osman's coaching has helped me re-evaluate my negative thought processes that were deep-set within me, and which resulted in the fearful way in which I was living my life.

I have since embarked upon some huge changes at both home and work – and am doing much better than I feel 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. I consider my decision to seek coaching a superb investment, and am grateful to Osman for his support.

I approached Osman as I was struggling to stand out at work and get a promotion. A big part of my problem was the difficulty in showing my colleagues that I was able to take on the extra responsibility that a more senior role would bring. I wasn’t able to put myself out there enough and was getting deflated, which resulted in a lack of motivation and, frankly, me getting bored.

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. For example, I realised through coaching that I had a subconscious fear of the way people perceived me, along with the feeling that I was not good enough. This meant that I never properly pushed myself, as much as I may have convinced myself that I did. I learnt that it is actually OK to have fear - and sometimes it can even be helpful. I learnt to understand the fear and how it manifests itself. I realised the way I reacted to this fear was the key to improving my confidence and performance. Osman helped me learn how to address and respond to this in a way that resulted in incredible changes in the way I 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!”

Working with Osman completely changed my life!

I initially decided to get coaching to improve my confidence in my job and start working towards a promotion. Osman helped provide me with a great level of self-awareness and the right mental tools to look differently at things holding me back. He also challenged me to push myself in various ways. One of those in the early days of our working relationship was to apply for a promotion sooner rather than later as a test run, even though I wasn’t ready, which was a big step out of my comfort zone. As it happens I got promoted the first time I applied!

The biggest impact he had on me though was helping me realise, despite the promotion, what was really important to me.

I had become incredibly frustrated working somewhere so big, and also quite demotivated, even with the promotion. I started to seriously question what I wanted. This was tough, as the promotion was something I’d wanted for a while. And now I slowly realised it didn’t make me more satisfied with my career.

As a part-time business, I had been helping to run a Youtube channel, which I had a lot fun with and which had been pretty successful. Despite this, however, I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to do this full-time. It was a massive leap from the previous career and felt like a huge risk. However, I also knew I wasn’t happy in my current career so I felt pretty confused because I couldn’t see the best way out.

Osman helped me explore this and to answer the question of what I really wanted. He helped me clarify what was really important to me in my life and career. He did that through a process of insightful questioning, which was sometimes quite uncomfortable as it involved challenging thoughts and views I’d held for a long time! However, through this it became crystal clear that I would regret not giving self-employment a shot.

So that’s what I did. I took a career break and decided to work full-time on Youtube video production. It’s been really hard at times, as expected, but overall I’ve really enjoyed it and Osman has helped me become more resilient and confident throughout this time. It’s also gone so well that I had an approach from a larger company who are now buying the channel because of how well it has performed! The negotiations were challenging but there’s no doubt the resilience and confidence I built up through coaching helped me get a good deal.

Now I’m in a position where I can take some time to explore what to do next and what might motivate me. Even though I’m not sure what it is yet, I’m really excited about what’s to come and can’t believe how much things have changed! I’ve gone from being stuck in a corporate job that didn’t mean much to me, to being completely free to make my own choices – and that’s an amazing feeling. Coaching helped me make these changes, and for me it’s an absolute no-brainer!
