Coaching for teens & young adults
This is your chance to take charge and bust that anxiety!
Do you feel alone?
‘Like no-one understands how you’re feeling?
Are people annoying the hell out of you or do you just feel really sad?
I promise you you’re not alone.
- 60% of 18 to 24 year olds have felt so stressed by pressure to do well that they have felt overwhelmed or unable to cope
- Almost half of all young people have experienced stress due to worries about body image and appearance
- 39% of young people said they had experienced suicidal feelings because of stress

And what have Stormzy, Kourtney & Kim, Kristen Stewart, Adele, Missy Elliott, Kristen Bell, Demi Lovato an Emma Stone got in common – apart from being big name stars?
They’ve experienced and been overwhelmed by anxiety and panic attacks.
I’ve also had depression and severe anxiety. I’ve felt that fear, worry, confusion, irritation, panic and anxiety that you’re experiencing right now. I had no one to show me HOW to feel better.
But then I discovered NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)* and learned how to feel better, FAST. It completely changed my life!
And since then, I’ve spent years studying and training so that I can help people just like you to bust your anxiety.
Like sports coaches help train our bodies, coaching with me will help you train your brain so you can start to feel happier, calmer and in control again.
* ‘Neuro’ relates to the brain and what we think; ‘linguistic’ refers to what we say by way of our words and body language, and ‘programming’ describes the patterns and habits we have created and learned.
In short, our brains are like computers, which sometimes run programs that don’t give us our desired results. NLP is a model which helps us reprogram these thoughts and behaviours which may (or may not) have once worked for us.
What a coaching session involves:
Each session will be based around what you want. We’ll discuss what’s going on for you right now (you don’t have to discuss anything you don’t want to) and look at ways to help you feel better again.
I will also show you some amazing anxiety-busting techniques which people I’ve worked with have found really fun, inspiring and effective.
This is a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you.
You’ll definitely have some ‘lightbulb’ moments along the way and things that are happening in your life will suddenly start to make more sense!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this counselling?
No it’s not. The Relieve Your Anxious Mind Coaching program is about coaching you to success.
How is coaching different to counselling?
Coaching is more about looking at what’s going on for you right now and focusing on solutions to empower you to move forward in your life. According to John Whitmore in his book, Coaching For Performance, “Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” (Whitmore, J., 2002).
There are benefits to counselling and I’m not disparaging the valuable work of counsellors for one moment, but coaching is beneficial because you won’t have to ‘re-live’ past disturbing events.
Coaching helps you to improve your performance in whichever areas of your life you wish; it focuses on the here and now and the steps you need to take to fulfil your potential. This is done by helping you to explore obstacles and create plans to help you maintain motivation and achieve your goals, wishes and desires.
Where are sessions held?
Sessions are held at the Glenn Lobo Centre in Luton but you can have some sessions online if you prefer.
Will the coaching sessions help me?
Yes. As long as you’re committed to making some positive changes in your life, you’ll benefit.
Do have a read of my testimonials and blog posts to see how this coaching has helped teenagers and young adults feel happy again.
"Despite being a beautiful, popular and successful academic teen, my daughter had some anxiety issues with starting a new school and also had an issue with flying in aeroplanes. She wasn’t afraid to fly, but associated getting sick on the plane with flying. Every trip we took was getting be a very traumatic experience as my daughter would start the day of the flight by not eating or drinking, yet still getting ill on the plane, dehydrated and needing to get wheelchair assistance through the airport.
Finally my daughter saw Aisha who said that she should be able to help. We had a flight booked and after only 2 NLP coaching sessions I was so happy to see that my daughter had an event-free flight experience. She doesn’t like to talk about her sessions with Aisha but when we came home from our last holiday, my daughter said, 'Mum, I’m cured.' Thank you Aisha."
"Aisha is so easy to talk to. I went to see her hoping to find ways to feel less anxious, especially at school. She made me feel at ease right away and tried to find out exactly what I needed. Then she gave me things to do each week that would help. She's given me some really useful techniques to help with stressful situations whenever I feel I need them. Now I feel more in control and know I can deal with anxious situations. I would definitely recommend Aisha to anyone who wants less stress and anxiety in their life."
"Thank you so much for all you have done for L... She really enjoyed working with you and has benefitted from it a great deal. You've taught her some really great skills that will stand her in good stead for life. Like I said before, it's just a shame all children aren't given those skills."
