'In the middle of the road of my life, I awoke in a dark wood
where the true way was wholly lost' - Dante
ARE YOU READY TO REDISCOVER YOUR TRUE WAY AND CREATE SUCCESS THAT COMBINES ACHIEVEMENT AND FULFILMENT?
You're here because you know something different is possible in your career and life but you're not sure where to start, right?
And you know that you can't create change by repeating old patterns.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CREATE IN YOUR LIFE?
Coaching is an art and science that helps you discover your hidden dream, face your secret fears and then go and create what you want in the world.
During the powerful coaching process I offer, you will:
- Clarify your deeper vision for your career and life and identify specific goals that inspire you
- Reveal areas of growth or blind spots that are holding you back
- Shift your mindset from struggle to mastery and from employee-expert to entrepreneur-leader
- Design an elegant strategy that guides you when you wake up and an action plan that energises you rather than drains you
- Develop new decision-making and relational skills through playful assignments and practices that propel you onto a new trajectory
As you participate in the coaching process over time your world will change in surprising ways.
Three areas of your being that you will focus on and will catalyse your growth:
PRESENCE: Defining success from within. Relaxing into calm, confident aliveness. Diminishing mental noise that blurs your vision of the future
POWER: Amplifying your inner-wisdom by methodically dismantling limiting beliefs, illuminating blind spots and unlearning narratives that no longer serve you
POSSIBILITY: Learning to take action amidst the unknown and enjoying it! Moving through cycles of change and understanding which part of the cycle you're in, so that you know exactly what to do at any moment.
Dreams can come true.

Flavours of coaching you can choose from:
If you're not sure about specific vision or goals, you can think about themes. What might help you at this stage in your career or life?
Feeling overwhelmed and no time to stop and think, let alone breathe? We will slow down to see where you’re losing energy, repair boundaries and make sure you’ve got time to fit in all the things that matter to you while putting the spring back in your step.
Need to get a project done and procrastinating? We’ll get you organised and handle fears around failure and success that might be creeping in and sabotaging your progress. We’ll make sure you’re delivering to your highest capability.
Feeling stuck or unsure about your next steps in work or life but can’t see what else might be possible for you? We’ll explore what’s lying behind the brain fog, and uncover the secret dream waiting to be realised. You’ll get back into action and feel inspired again.
Are you called to make a bigger impact? It can be lonely at the top. We’ll uncover your unique mission, authentic leadership style and amplify it through enhancing self-mastery, communication and presentation. You’ll feel more at ease with responsibility and start seeing shifts in your interactions, towards greater connection and influence.
How it works: the system and the practicalities
Coaching is a process and a life-changing investment. It has an endless return because it rewires your brain for the long term. You invest your time, energy and money to transform your world from the inside out.
1. Dedicated time and space with an experienced professional to help you shift your mindset, energy, and create results that will surprise and delight you
2. Meetings every two weeks for 60 minutes.
3. Virtually unlimited access to support by email and short calls between sessions
4. Reading recommendations, coaching assignments and support with meditation and other scientifically-proven, awareness practices.
5. The coaching is through video conference call and you'll design the best set up for you to have your location independent coaching experience.
Coaching is an investment of your time, energy and resources in yourself. It can feel strange or extravagant as we live in a culture that predominantly values material goods and can discourage deep self-care and truly independent reflection.
Happily, coaching is carbon neutral and contributes to a mentally healthy and thriving society. It's one of the best ROIs (Returns on Investment) you can make and is increasingly recognised as such by leaders and progressive organisations.
Your investment in this coaching process ranges from £1,900 to 11,100 depending on which option you choose. We'll clarify this in the Exploratory Coaching Conversation.
Here are three excellent ways we can work together that you can consider for now*:
[Option 1] Redefine Success: Day Breakthrough Intensive to define the future you never imagined possible in your career, business and life. Go beyond cultural expectations of work and lifestyle and contribute to societal evolution through the work you're truly called to do. This includes strategic design and powerful action on the day to realign your career or life (£1,900).
[Option 2] Upgrade Your Mindset: 6 months to dive deep into the limiting beliefs and narratives that are holding you back in work and life. Start to transform long-term situations and relationships, recover a sense of freedom and feel energised and inspired (£5,700).
[Option 3] Expand Your Impact: 12 months to take sustained action on the Vision of the Future that you've defined, reach momentum and radically transform your life. Learn to navigate uncertainty or complex situations with ease and take smart risks that create what you truly want for yourself and others. It includes two months off for rest and integration in August and December (£11,100).

Laura, GP Partner at Award Winning medical practice
I was working so fast I had no time to consolidate my ideas. Amina helped me create time to reflect on my plans and make value-based decisions and a clearer vision of my future. Eventually, I realised I could "just do it!' and reduced my work week by a day to finally focus on my book and new plans.
Eleni, VP Digital Marketing
I am actually doing less yet I feel I am more creative and in flow compared to before. What seemed impossible is happening effortlessly. I've created a new exciting role in a new company with potential for a bigger impact, got two big passion projects off the ground - the Kimolian Academy and Anthea Retreats - and feel energised and inspired again.
- Arup, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, AXA PPP healthcare, UK
In a short space of time Amina has helped improve personal ability to air difficult opinions and provide feedback- improving my perception of ‘control’ at work. I increased in confidence. I was also embarrassed to ask for help. However, Amina’s ability to create a safe space and give clear/ direct feedback to my own thoughts has been hugely positive for me.
Hi, I'm Amina
Over a 15+ year career as a doctor, scientist and population health expert specialised in social psychology and behaviour change, I’ve worked in hospitals, delivered babies in a war zone, and advised the United Nations on Climate Change. In 2016, I created my own coaching and advisory practice, replaced my full time doctor's income and have spent 1000+ hours serving talented professionals and visionary leaders like you, who are committed to creating the career, life and impact they truly want. The journey is not always easy but it's worth it.
Who am I to help you? First, I know what it's like to be lost and confused on the path to authentic success. I've learned that this is the price of breaking through to the next level of achievement and fulfilment with integrity. I've been through this process so many times, personally and through guiding clients, that I know the transformational process like the back of my hand. Second, coaching is a partnership that draws out your greatness, not a teaching relationship where you absorb facts. Working with me, you'll have a double doctor on your success team. I've trained with some of the best coaches in the world to offer you world-class coaching. I am certified with the Tony Robbins School of Coaching and am an accredited Integral Coach; as well as being trained with MITx on Leadership in Times of Change and with Oxford University in Philosophy of Mind. I graduated from Cambridge Medical School in 2002, and hold a Masters in Public Health from LSHTM and a PhD in Social Epidemiology from UCL. What most of my clients appreciate is the depth of self-awareness I help them reach as a result of my own years of deep meditation practice.
If you'd value learning from real-life experience, hard-won self-awareness and a scientifically rigorous approach (avoiding mistakes I've made trying to create a meaningful career and better world), and you're committed to both achievement and fulfilment in your career and life, this could be the coaching process for you.
*Please, note that an exploratory conversation does not guarantee that I will offer you a coaching programme. While the exploration will be valuable to you no matter what, I work with a limited number of people who I believe I can truly help and who are doing work that makes a difference in the world or want to find out how. If you’re not sure, you’ll know when you complete the coaching questionnaire when you book a conversation.
