Overcome Your Challenges and Achieve Your Goals
In an effort to support clients through transitions or transformations I have created a methodology that is both mind and body focused, a thought- and feeling-based approach. I help individuals or groups to overcome their challenges, and achieve their goals, by empowering them to first become owners of their bodies and masters of their minds. I provide a safe space in which clients can pause, breathe, meditate or reflect, and re-energise; taking some invaluable time to equip themselves with the mindset and skill set to tune in to their own greatness, so that they can regroup for their next massive leap forward.
WHO AM I
A Philosophical and Practical Consultant Coach
With an invaluable wealth of deep personal development experience, wellness expertise, and extensive physical conditioning know-how, whatever your hopes or troubles may be, body, mind, soul ... you can speak to me; I can help. I help my clients change how they see themselves and their worlds; because when you see yourself and your world differently, everything changes.
Life is too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. Over the years I have been successfully coaching clients to win in the game of life, facilitating their happiness, health and self-growth. I am the coach who practices what I preach, continuously growing in ownership and mastery which enables me to be more truthful, more loving, more peaceful, and more integrated. I am the coach who supports you as you lead a more wholesome existence, allowing yourself to experience the entire spectrum of what life has to offer in its myriad variants of 'love' and 'fear'; embodying the fullness of this human experience. I am the coach for you if you sincerely no longer want to merely endure life, but want to enjoy it in all its facets and rich variety.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by life's demands in this paradoxical and mostly dichotomous experience, my services aim to introduce insight, clarity and self-motivation. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the perceived issues or obstacles standing in the way of your goals and evolution. All you have to do is choose and commit to change. Stop squatting in your body, a slave to your mind!
MY COACHING STORY
Helping You Move Forward
Everything is a matter of perception. Are we all simply flesh, blood and bones, with a body designed for movement that also needs stillness, and a mind that never seems to stop but has to; or are we also - first and foremost - manifestations and expressions of a source ENERGY, native INTELLIGENCE, and essential AWARENESS? ...A spirit having a human experience.
Since 2016 I have been helping people cope with and overcome their issues and challenges. I first learned about counselling and coaching when I hit crossroads myself, had an existential crisis, and was struggling to evolve beyond this interesting time. After way too many years of living a lie, with a consistent existential noise for as long as I can remember, just about to leave the army, nothing, absolutely nothing made sense until I resolutely decided to take determined steps towards transforming my life. In my best shape at the time, a complete overhaul of my fundamentally flawed and dysfunctional patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours was required; I had to predominantly change my perception of myself (self-image) and my world. It was time to begin my journey of deep self-discovery and self-mastery. The learning experiences, techniques I developed, and transformation I underwent was so successful that friends and family began to speak to me more openly about their own challenges. This motivated me to use my newfound perspective, tools and skills in the service of others.
Now a fully certified - insured - Mindfulness and Somatic Educator and Coach (amongst other things), helping my clients achieve their personal and professional goals, stress-free, I have been a prolific agent of transformation, empowerment and wellness to many. I coach my clients in a way that utilises their heads and their hearts. The essence of my work is to facilitate deep (holistic) personal development through self-growth and empowered wellness. I can help you overcome your challenges, and achieve your goals, by empowering you to first become the owner of your body and master of your mind. During our progressive collaboration I will help you identify the core challenges and setbacks in your life so that you can overcome them with confidence. I specialise in creating personalised plans and providing tools to guide you forward. If you have any questions about my methods or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch.

"I have enjoyed working with Obi, he made me feel extremely calm and confident to express myself with no judgement. He has helped me to identify my barriers that are blocking growth and to look at my life in a different perspective in order to be my true and authentic self. Thank you Obi for my enlightenment." - Barbara C.
"My experience so far working with Obi has been one of enlightenment and growth. Obi provides a very safe space whereby truth and honesty in all forms is respected and honoured. I have always been delivered to a more empowered place after every session. For anyone seeking a wonderful coach who spiritually and philosophically underscores a safe space whilst promoting wellness, mindfulness and fulfilment, I HIGHLY recommend." - Roxanne R.
"Working with Obi has been very interesting. I came to him with many issues that were hindering my success and personal development. Obi has challenged my thinking and my stances on certain issues and the way I perceive the world, he has been able to help me put everything into perspective. I feel that Obi's style of coaching is very unique and authentic, and for me it has been very significant in helping me remove old belief systems that were no longer serving me, and also to allow me to dig deeper and find out who I really am at the core." - Sahil S.
"Obi and I have been on a heck of a journey over the past 8 weeks. Initially I was apprehensive to work with a male coach wondering whether a male would 'get me', but Obi listened to my every word without judgement; he made me realise very quickly that I had nothing to be apprehensive about. He was always right by my side, totally invested in me and my journey. Obi is a true professional and gentleman with a beautiful soul that he brings 100% to every coaching session. Obi is a natural and authentic coach that I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending." - Phillipa P.
"I have found it to be very helpful working with Obi. He helped me clearly identify areas of my life which I wanted to work on and what was holding me back. I found his approach to be very wise and I have learnt a lot with his help." - Jamie A.
Life throws many surprises at us, and whilst we cannot always correctly predict the outcome of every situation, we can take control of how we respond to any situation. With _BYOBI coaching and consulting you will - above all else - learn about present moment awareness, acceptance, and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you; exerting your will to think and act in a certain way - regardless of the situation, and, thereby, empowering yourself to co-create your experiences.
