British Asian Life Coach | Therapy for Women

Hi! I’m Roksana Hussein and I help women (just like you) realise their full potential in all areas of their life. The key to expanding your potential comes from the relationship you have with yourself and how thoroughly you have dealt with events or trauma from your past.

If your heritage is South Asian or you’re in a relationship with a South Asian, I get you! 75% of my clients are British South-Asian Women living in the UK. I understand your complex culture and family dynamics. I understand the nuances and I can read between the lines! I was born in the UK to my immigrant parents desperate to hold on to their Pakistani heritage. Don’t get me wrong, I love so much about being Asian, the food, language, clothes and sense of community but the reality is I wasn’t surrounded with too many wholesome examples of well-balanced Asian families. None of my Indian and Pakistani friends were treated equally to their brothers or male cousins, and we all had to suck it up or be labelled as ‘rebel’. Asian girls, even as adults, are not allowed the freedom to be who they want or to do what they want in many aspects of their life.

The patriarchal mentality erodes self-confidence and self-belief. Girls like us, weren’t able to imagine a life for ourselves that wasn’t pre-planned or conditioned (to some extent) by our parents or elders. Most disheartening, our elder women, reinforce or police the patriarchy, may be for the sake of peace but it means we have little to no support. Sadly, this leads to either living a secret life or abandoning our core unmet needs.

I’m going to guess, you still second guess yourself, the inner critic plays havoc; and you fear judgement from people in positions of authority? You reach certain levels of joy and success but then something blocks you from going further? Like you need acceptance, permission or approval from someone. I know this well because I’ve lived with this polarity too.

I would reach a certain level of joy and success but then become stuck with procrastination, self-doubt and imposter syndrome. I self-sabotaged all-the-time. Even now, I regularly, compassionately check in with myself to make sure i’m not unconsciously holding myself back.

I’m a mum to two young children. My parents are elderly with complex health issues and live two hours North. Life is full! I know it’s a challenge to prioritise yourself but please know you are worthy and deserving of a joyous life.

The quality of your life will vastly improve by the decision to make a change.

When my son was a year old, I felt pushed out of my fifteen-year corporate career. In hindsight it was the best thing to have happened but I did struggle with an identity crisis for a while. The next few years weren’t plain sailing, unresolved and unhealed childhood traumas surfaced. I suffered anxiety and panic attacks. I learned how to manage these using effective tools I now share with my own clients.

My journey to heal and for personal growth was convoluted. I didn’t know what type of coaching or therapy I needed so I tried ALL the options over a decade! I don’t want that for you. I began coaching (2018) with a Diploma in Integrated Hypnotherapy, NLP and Coaching. Since then, I went onto obtain a Masters in Clinical Hypnotherapy, which includes EFT (Tapping), Coaching, as well as Regression Hypnotherapy. You are in safe hands with me, I belong to professional body ACCPH so you can rest assured I follow the gold quality standards code of conduct . I’m also a qualified EMDR coach, my current clients are benefiting enormously from this method.

This means, I combine proven coaching strategies WITH therapeutic practices to help you reach your desired outcome in a time frame that suits you.

Importantly, imagine looking back in six weeks from now when your well into your personal growth journey. Those negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours well in proportion, no longer affecting you and instead; growing the necessary abilities and resources to support the quality of life you aspire to have… becoming the version of yourself that you love, admire and respect a little more with each passing day.

Finally, all possibilities rest in your decision to prioritise yourself right now. No more putting it off. No more excuses, because you, after everything you have been through, deserve to live the highest quality of life, you have one life, it’s a gift, handle yourself with dignity and respect. Just as you would a close friend or someone you love dearly.
