Areas of Expertise & Coaching Approach

She believes in the power of being aware of the source within. Development of inner being & expression in the outer world are two sides on the same coin and critical for the process of transformation. Every individual has the capability to lead themselves to their next milestone and achieve it joyfully. And this inward journey towards manifesting the outer results encompasses, working through being aware of strengths and challenges, patterns and structures, flexing patterns to develop self and others and most importantly centring in the body for guidance and clues.

Whatever the coaching goal identified by the beneficiary, her success in coaching interventions comes from being able to curate the transformational journey that supports the unique needs & constitution of the inner qualities in a natural and most resonant way for the beneficiary.

  • Compassionate Courage: engages with kindness and commitment to make change possible
  • Invincible gratitude: spots, celebrates & nurtures inner strengths as they organically become present
