"Saiyyidah is one of the best people I have ever worked with.."

Muhammad Al Shareef
President, Al Maghrib Institute

"Saiyyidah is courageous and highly skilled consultant who is empowering other women to become successful entrepreneurs. She has done her homework and is well positioned to provide value to her clients."

Margie Meacham
Author and Learning Consultant

"As a self employed entrepreneur before I started working with Saiyyidah I was all over the place in my health and internally. Since working with Saiyyidah I have gained clarity and focus, launched a new business, a new online training course, and ran the Paris Marathon! I went from unhealthy and unfocused to disciplined and healthy. Saiyyidah is able to combine high performance with positive psychology and help me identify why I was holding myself back. Many of the things she suggested I knew but through working with Saiyyidah I did the work, built a plan, took action and made it happen. Saiyyidah has a way of pushing you along in what appears to be soft, but she has a strong will and an iron fist! She will push you when needed and support you when required! If you are considering working with Saiyyidah I'd definitely recommend it, it is worth the time and the money!"

Steeve Lamontagne
Amazon Business Owner, Trainer, and Public Speaker.

"Saiyyidah is positive, driven and straight to the point. She will tell you things about your mindset, time management and strategy that you may not want to hear, but that you know, deep down are true. I have benefited from her tremendously."

Na'ima Roberts
Founding Editor-in-Chief at SISTERS

"Saiyyidah has been an inspiration to me since the day I met her. Through her life coaching training and her background in positive psychology she helped me have clarity in my life and motivated me to see my potential. I highly recommend saiyyidah for those who seek clarity and motivation in life looking for a higher version of themselves. Saiyyidah has an amazing way of making complicated issues seem so simple and help you find the solution to your challenges. I have worked with may coaches and counsellors before but saiyyidah has been the best."

Amna Salamah Morrar

"Saiyyidah is very focused and gets the job done in the best way for those she works with.  She is extremely valuable in any team and is one of the best motivators I have come across. Saiyyidah is able to teach a lot of content in a very efficient short space of time that is actually useable and can be implemented without too much difficulty."
