About my guest

Abi Osho is the founder of Soul Melanin Ltd. She is a leadership coach, author, speaker, and retreat creator. Abi came from humble beginnings, and she made a decision to change her life in order to heal herself and help other people heal from their own childhood trauma.

Abi believes that when we are empowered to change our own story from one of self-doubt to unwavering self-belief, this has a ripple effect that will further help other women connect back to their own inner place of personal power.  

As a holistic leadership coach, Abi supports Black and brown female leaders to reconnect with who they are becoming, cultivating a deeper level of embodiment for expansive leadership within.

Abi also creates nature-based retreats for women of colour in the UK (as featured in The Guardian January 2023) and in Africa, she is a keen advocate of holistic health and wellbeing,

Abi travels solo throughout the continent of Africa, meeting with indigenous communities, whilst sourcing the purest holistic indigenous African oils.
