Before coaching, I was focussed too much on what other people would think and constantly put myself down. Aliya essentially helped me to realise how unproductive this was and how in order to get the results I wanted, I had to believe in myself: she gave me the tools to grow confidence. And I did. After just one session, I went to a job interview and I could not have delivered a better performance. I never thought I would have received feedback that I was “punchy and willing to engage in debate”, which impressed them. Taking the other five sessions helped me to practice the techniques Aliya taught me which I will carry on doing throughout my career and personal life.
I couldn’t emphasise enough how great her sessions are. She’s passionate about what she does and takes them so seriously. I’m so glad she’s helped me start my confidence journey and I definitely look forward to some sessions in the future.
Confidence coaching might not be necessary for everyone – but if you’re currently functioning at 60% when you could be closer to 90%, you’d be silly not to have some coaching sessions.
A friend I went to dinner with told me how different I was compared to a few months back, she said I am way more confident in social situations, I carry myself differently even the way I walked into the restaurant was different and just in general how I come across. Thank you so so much for all your help and support over the past few months, I don’t think I can thank you enough.
I reached out because I was on a journey of self development and I noticed the videos you posted on social media where about exactly what I was going through. I needed a push.
You used a lot of visualising tools. I noticed while working with you, you tried to get me to dig deep to figure out the answers on my own. What I like about your coaching is that the sessions are long enough and you follow up by using voice notes.
Of course doing the homework is essential and it is not just a one day thing it is a continuous thing which is sometimes challenging but with coaching I realised I need to call myself out when i fall back into old bad habits. Through coaching I learnt how to deal with emotions in a healthier manner and mainly to focus on being more proactive rather than reactive
(after writing this testimonial, G decided to continue working with me for another 6 months!)
I was late everywhere I went, as much as I tried not to be, I was pessimistic about my personal growth and development prospects.
I was also dubious of the whole coaching idea. I didn’t really see the need for it at first. It was one of the best investments in my myself I have made in a long time. I literally had someone to encourage me all along the way, help me to go over my goals, review my progress, be accountable to. She told me that I wasn’t failing when I felt like I was! Speaking to Aliya on a Sunday evening for instance really helped me face my week!
I definitely feel more confident because of the way she made me feel about myself and my achievements.
One of my goals by the end of coaching was to get a new job- and I did! It was also to improve on my punctuality at work- and I have! To feel more confident- and I do! There are a lot more seeds that she has sown in my mind and I have no doubt they will grow.

I wanted to kick start my business and was always afraid of doing so. I struggled with putting myself out there and I was obsessed with what people would think of me if I did. I lacked confidence in myself and wanted coaching to help build my confidence in a professional environment and a social environment.
I really enjoyed working with Aliya, she was able to fill me with confidence every session, understand the current issues I was facing and make plans and next steps to tackle those issues. she pushed me to be consistent with my work and business. She reminded me that in a professional workplace I shouldn’t make the situation about myself and get nervous that I should just focus on the end goal no matter how I looked. I was able kick start my business and made a weekly plan to progress my business. I was able to trust Aliya with all my future goals and ambitions and she did not judge me and was extremely supportive no matter how much I didn’t believe in myself. I would always leave every session feeling extremely motivated to work on my goals straight away.
I was able to make a start on my business which was important to me. I took on board Aliya’s comments and applied them to every day situations that occurred in the workplace. I was reminded about self love and self belief and how key it is in a professional setting and working for myself.”

I’d recommend attending one of your events and/or joining the Facebook group as nobody can every say they’re finished in terms of the journey of self-growth, development and their relationship with themselves. The work you do through the events and groups allows people to undertake inner reflection, take incredible pride in what they have achieved and their strengths and look at areas and steps they can take to increase their personal growth.
“For me, before learning about your work, I wasn’t someone who put my hand up quickly to attend events around self-confidence, however having known you for a long time and seeing all of the work you were doing to empower women, in their personal and professional lives, I didn’t have to think twice when you invited me to attend your workshops. In doing so, whilst I thought I knew my own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to self-confidence, I learnt so much more about myself, in terms of who I am as a person, where I excel and where my problems lie. I took so much learning away from hearing the stories of lots of inspiring women who attended the workshops, and from the valuable content and tips you provided. As a result of attending your workshops I have, and this is a forever ongoing journey, learnt the important of saying no to others and yes to yourself at the same time, of why its important to be less self-critical and a perfectionist all the time, why its important to continue reflecting on and assessing all areas of your life and the importance of self-care. From attending the workshops I’ve slowly started putting steps in place to really input these valuable things I’ve learnt in my day to day life.
