About Me 

Scottish Relationship Expert, Certified Coach

Published Author, Speaker, Mentor

Born in Wales, UK and raised in Scotland, I have always had a passion for service. In my early years, I trained in advanced first aid and joined an ocean rescue team abroad. Upon my return to the UK, I followed my desire to serve the community by working as a police officer in Scotland (Strathclyde Police).


In 2008, I fulfilled a life-long dream by joining a British expedition to climb Mount Everest, raising more than £300,000 for the British Heart Foundation. I made the climb in memory of my mother, who passed away in 2001 at the tender age of 44 to a heart condition.  I used the Everest expedition to make sense of some of my own internal battles. After deep reflection and soul searching in the Himalayas, I realised that a lot of my pain was rooted in the sudden death of my mother when I was only 21 years old. 


I decided to devote my life to helping others who have also been torn apart by the struggles of life. 


The real game-changer came when I started to study my faith (Islam) and engage with various senior scholars and advanced students of knowledge.


I began to study psychology, attending seminars on the human condition in the form of inspiration from some of our era’s great figures in personal development, including Les Brown, Muhammad Alshareef, Brendon Burchard, Kerwin Rae, Simon Sinek and Anthony (Tony) Robbins. It was only then that I endeavoured upon my greatest challenge to date: my Life Lessons™ series.


Through my growing social media presence, I went on to pen my first written piece: "7 Life Lessons: Overcoming Your Past Self.™"  This was so warmly received across the globe that it ignited my passion for writing, resulting in my latest published works:

"7 Life Lessons on the Myths of Marriage." ™


My passion and specialist skill set is in the field of relationships and life coaching. I have dedicated my time to helping as many individuals, couples and families as possible to overcome their relationship and personal problems. I handle issues related to pre-marital, marital, divorce, addictions, as well as personal development and building healthy compatibility in marriage.


I now reside in the US with my wife, Yasmin Mogahed, and children. A large part of my inspiration comes from my wife, who is also a public figure and has devoted much of her life to the service of God by serving people within our community. 


I offer an online space in which difficult feelings can be explored between couples or individuals without judgment or blame. 


I deal with issues including, but not limited to: 


  • Stress

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Interpersonal Issues

  • Premarital coaching

  • Sexual and Emotional Disconnect

  • Infidelity

  • Parental Alienation 

  • Divorce

  • Parenting

  • Fighting and Defensiveness

  • Communication

  • Codependency

  • Addiction 

  • Islamic Identity

  • Narcissism...and more


My role is to provide a safe and informed place in which individuals or couples can become clear about what is happening between them, allowing them to make healthy choices, and move forward to make decisions with greater clarity and understanding.


I provide relationship, marital and life coaching from an Islamic perspective using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy  & Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques. I help couples more truthfully know themselves and each other. This leads to a better understanding of how their inner selves are affecting their day-to-day lives.
