Certified Coach


MOE Certified coach 

Coaching Approach

I graduated from medical school in 2007 and I qualified as a GP in 2012. I have gained valuable experience working within the NHS and in the private sector. I especially love lifestyle medicine because of its holistic approach and its power to help prevent chronic disease. I have always had an interest in personal development which is what led me to becoming a certified coach. I have a passion for helping other people to realise their full potential and to become their best selves. I have 16 years of experience working as a doctor so I can empathise with the challenges that my colleagues face at all stages of their training and their career; coaching is an amazing transformative skill that I can offer my colleagues to help them to thrive (and not just to survive). 

My approach to coaching is to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore your goals, limiting beliefs, and generate momentum to help you achieve your full potential in any area of your life. I work in partnership with you and your agenda is always the focus of each coaching session. I aim to help you to become ‘unstuck’ and to move forward with clarity, confidence, positivity, and self-compassion.

Coaching process

I can offer you 1:1 coaching on a range of topics including navigating your career, developing a portfolio career, handling transitional phases of life, creating a healthy work-life balance, stress management, and developing your creativity.

What are your three unique selling points that separates you from other coaches?

1. I have developed an unusual set of creative skills which has enabled me to have a great work-life balance and to pursue my various passions: I am a certified makeup artist, I have a diploma in interior design, I have taken several courses in photography, and I create abstract paintings in my spare time. I also enjoy fashion illustration and cake decorating. I encourage health professionals to develop their own unique creative expression – no matter how odd it may sound - because I have learned that this helps one to thrive.

2. I have 16 years of experience consulting with patients which has enabled me to develop my communication skills and empathy; I have learned to consistently provide a safe space where anything can be discussed.

3. I am originally from Nigeria but I grew up in Australia; I have also lived in Hong Kong for a short period of time. I completed my first degree in Biology in Canada before moving to the UK in 2003 to study medicine. Living in different countries has taught me how to manage transitions and to be sensitive to people from different cultures. As a black woman I am a minority in the UK and I know first-hand the challenges this has presented during my medical training and throughout my career. I bring this wealth of experience, perspective, and sensitivity to my coaching.
