My name is Dilara Tetik. I’m a London based life and relationship coach working with clients in the UK, Europe and the USA. I was born and raised in Turkey. After I graduated from university in 2000, I came to London as an au-pair. When I first arrived, I couldn’t speak a word of English and didn’t have any friends or family based in UK. It was a great learning experience in so many ways.
Over the next couple of years, I’ve done everything I needed to do to become financially independent and worked at various jobs. Such as a cleaner, barmaid, in a sandwich shop, at a café. My work schedule used to be 18 hours a day, 7 days a week during that period but I loved all my jobs because they were moving me towards my goals.
A few years later, I got a job in a Property and Investment company as an Accounts Assistant and made my way through the ranks to a Senior Management Accountant. I worked for Private Equity, Law, Health and Safety and Executive Research companies in the city. After many years working in a corporate environment I was dissatisfied, unfulfilled and burnt out.
I have been through a divorce, bullying in the workplace, redundancy and clinical depression, all in 3 years. The following 2.5 years, with a strong mindset, dedication and humour, I created a brand new life which I’m very happy and proud of. This is the happiest and most meaningful period of my life so if I ever say to you “I know how you feel, I’ve been there”, I actually mean it.
Following my dream which was becoming a Life Coach and a Speaker has given me so much fullfillment. It is my true passion. I dedicated my life to serve people who might be going through some challenges, procrastination, self doubt, fears or worries.
I’m a very motivated, focused and goal oriented person which helps me working with clients who have specific goals or outcomes. I’m also naturally gifted with a strong intuition which helps me identify underlying issues or causes even if you choose to not to share them with me straight away. The combination of these two qualities and having been experienced a series of life crises myself, gives me the confident to promise you to deliver the results you want , as long you have the commitment and patience which will be required to achieve your dreams.

Here are some fun fact you might want to know about me.
I’ve watched Friends episodes so many times that I could probably repeat every line from every episode.
Me and spiders don’t like each other much. I can easily burn the house down if I see a jumping spider. (Yes, apparently they exist).
My biggest dream is to get stuck in a book store overnight. You will see me most excited when I speak about books. I’m sure you already realise this but I love books.
