What motivated you to become a coach?
My love, passion and dedication to help, heal and empower people to become the best version of themselves holistically. I have always been a conscious creator and coaching has given me the tools and awareness of being able to be a medium for an individual’s transformation.
What was one of your biggest learnings while training to become a coach?
I’m listing all four here:
To love myself with deep dedication and evolve to the highest version of myself.
To know where my strengths and weakness lie in my constitution and how to use them to my advantage in life.
To understand that life is a journey, a magnificent evolution of self and we all go through challenges. The first step is to realize that we are not alone, guidance is available to us and healing can bring about great transformation.
To realize my untapped potential and be able to set realistic heart centered goals and to expand my mind to reach them.
What strategies do you see companies doing really well in terms of corporate wellness?
In my years as a corporate wellness practitioner, Corporate Wellness has become so diverse in this new Complementary model of healthcare. Companies are expanding to embrace the new paradigm of integrative health, mind, body techniques and holistic health interventions such as mindfulness, breath work, onsite practitioners, massage therapy, yoga and wellness coaching.
This investment in the wellbeing of their employees can lead to the prosperity and productivity of the organization as a collective.
What do you think prevents more professionals from seeking out their own coach?
There could be a variety of factors:
I think we feel that it is possible to do it ‘on our own’ and don’t seek the help and guidance we need.
The fear of being seen as weak if you seek professional help especially from family and friends.
You don’t have the motivation and courage to chase your goals at this moment.
The financial aspect of investing in a coach.
What is your favorite part of being a coach and corporate wellness specialist?
For me it would be the connection with individuals from diverse backgrounds and seeing the limitless possibilities within them. As an integrative practitioner and coach, I have the gift of knowing my client holistically and able to help them in totality - mind, body and spirit.
To be able to experience the transformation and growth in my clients and help them with their wellness goals so they can perform as the best, highest and authentic version of themselves.
The creative aspect of being able to incorporate strategies and modalities according to the needs corporate, each being unique!
