Meet Obehi Alofoje
Hello! I’m Obehi. I work with high-achieving business women who can’t figure out how to stop procrastinating. I teach them simple tricks to Get. It. Done. I’ve worked with hundreds of people over the years to help them overcome self-sabotaging and unhelpful mindsets and behaviours. I can teach you simple productivity tricks, so that you can grow a profitable and successful business you love.
This is how I establish relationships with my coaching clients, just so you know!
Lessons from my past
I often get asked why I do this work. My interest in this area stems from my childhood experience of watching my mother struggle with juggling a career and later her own architectural firm, while raising four children. Unsurprisingly this resulted in bouts of anxiety and depression. She worked really hard to manage her self-doubts about her role as a mother and as a wife, as well as her desire to design and build beautiful buildings that she could be proud of. Sadly, she died in a car accident at the age of 49. I was in the car with her. I was 19 and although I wasn’t hurt physically, I grieved. It started a painful journey of learning to live through this trauma, without my mother.
As I navigated through adulthood, I’d often hear her voice in my head pushing me through. I’d remember things she had said that just seemed to fit the exact situation that I found myself in. Or I’d catch her unexpectedly in my reflection when I passed a shop window.
I studied counselling psychology and qualified as a personal development coach, as a purposeful way to understand people’s emotions and to help them build the resilience that could enable them to ride through any adversity. I started Aurora Wellness to help people like my mother. Driven, ambitious, capable, loving, women who want the best for themselves and their families. Women who are trying to be a good role model to their daughters and sons, but who sometimes feel overwhelmed by the expectations and responsibilities of being a modern woman.
As you might have guessed, women in business are particularly special to me. When I coach these women, I’m filled with a sense of privilege that I help them gain the insights that push them through the self-doubts, the guilt and the imposter syndrome. I help them to find clarity about what drives their ambitions and why they do what they do. I teach them to find the space within to nurture their wellbeing, so that they can take control of their own lives, knowing that they are exactly who they were always meant to be.
There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.Michelle Obama
