Rizwana Saleem

Rizwana Saleem Growing up as a Londoner was nice but also quite over-whelming with the lifestyle I had. Working 7 days a week I was balancing my 3 jobs, finishing one shift and starting another at another place. It was my daily routine for years. I became so used to it that I started to forget about what I really enjoyed. I had no time for a social life. One day I woke up and thought to myself, I need to do something with my life. I need to do what I enjoy and do it properly. I realised Massages were my strongest passion. I got told I had ‘healing hands’ by the sick and the elderly which was a big satisfaction for me.  Helping people to feel better made me feel great. I got my Business ‘Healing Secret’ started up and took my services to charity events around London where it became a great success. I had met so many amazing people in my life, and most of all, clients who opened my eyes to ‘Life Coaching’.  One of my very first clients and my very good friend now, who was an ICF accredited Coach and delivered a certified ICF Coach Trained Programme –  Mahnaz.   She had always told me I had the potential to become a life coach and I decided to take part in the courses that were run by her. I met lots of amazing people, meditated, took part in intense powerful mind activities, stayed in the room with curiosity, and left with tears of satisfaction. I had no clue what impact it would have on my life.  I wanted to be coached before I could be a coach, so I could know and appreciate it.  Initially I wanted to better myself in life, help myself to understand who I am as a person, and then help people out there in reaching their full potential. I am currently on a very exciting journey where my experiences have lead me to my dream. I work in the Middle East and through this journey I have many exciting plans, two of them: Coaching in Qatar and publishing my very first book! I enjoy sharing my experiences to empower others in living a life they love, and making everyone aware that nothing...

Ghazalla Hussain

Ghazalla Hussain My biggest achievement in life by far are my four amazing children. Being a mum at a young age was challenging to say the least but I have certainly learnt and gained so much from these unique and precious relationships and still am!  Most of my working life I have been with the Civil Service and currently I am working right in the centre of democracy, the Houses of Parliament Outreach and Engagement service. Being part of a service which actively works to engage people and make them aware of how they can have their voice heard makes me feel proud to be part of an establishment that proactively promotes inclusivity. I have been involved with and volunteered in many community projects and initiatives. Serving a community that I am part of is enriching and empowering. I continue to be active in the community and also want to provide opportunities for others to experience getting involved in the community they are a part of. I am currently developing a leadership programme for 18-24 year olds, with the aim of providing them with a pool of mentors to work with on projects serving various different community groups.  I love nature and organise an annual Pennine Way challenge, with a group of walkers which include young children. Each challenge serves as a fundraising opportunity in which we have supported a number different charities around the world.  I discovered a passion of reading books recently something which I hated as a child. Whenever I would read a really good book I realised I didn’t have anyone to discuss it with! With this in mind my new hobby led me to set up a bookclub for women particularly for those who ‘just didn’t have the time to read’. It has been amazing to see this group grow and hearing the feedback that this club has reignited their love for books which they hadn’t even realised had fizzled out. I am a real people’ person which is why I believe I was led to the path of becoming a coach. It was not even on my radar and so through the divine...
