Puja is an incredible coach and a huge support to me, someone who I really admire for going against the grain and being bold enough to do things differently.
She has a warm, generous spirit which is evident by the care and attention she gives, plus a great sense of humour!
"I first met Puja on a retreat she was hosting. At the time I needed to work through some personal issues with my family, help myself reset and learn to prioritise my own needs. I was also undergoing IVF so needed to find strategies to help dial down my stress levels too. I contacted Puja and set up bi-weekly coaching sessions. I chose to work with Puja again because I liked her coaching style – she’s very good at understanding who you are and your life’s challenges as well as identifying your strengths, even when you don’t feel like you have any.
A lot of the work we have done has been based around my anxiety and developing techniques to manage it. I’m someone who doesn’t shy away from investing in the help that I need and although I wasn’t sure what I actually needed help with at each session, the hour unfolded easily and we were soon working through things that I may not have realised were troubling me.
I was looking to understand and conduct myself better in life for the goals such as achieving a more desirable weight and being able to let go of the negative self-talk and thoughts I had so often experienced. What I enjoyed about working with Puja is that she challenged me to think about my problems from a different perspective and to understand how I can overcome them. She helps you to look into things that could usually be overlooked, accidentally or because you are tying to avoid the consequences (like me!) I was so impressed with how far I had come with Puja’s support from a very self-critical individual to someone who believes in themselves with confidence! I now believe that anything is possible if I put my mind to it.
The first time I met Puja, before signing up to her coaching, she immediately made me feel at ease. She was able to spot the confidence within me and help bring it to the surface, helping me open up to the wider group we were with at the time. I was at a very low point due to the end of a life-changing relationship, and she helped me to focus and calm my thoughts through a variety of techniques that I will continue to use in my life going forwards. This was supported by her undeniable ability to find the root of what I’m saying/feeling and present it back to me, for us to work through together. Its not always been easy, but at all times I’ve felt fully supported, and I would highly recommend Puja’s services to anyone looking for help.
I needed to tap back into my confidence, self belief, creativity as well as release blocks without feeling under pressure. I felt comfortable to explore every session in my way and still felt challenged and enlightened. I had no idea that I would feel so driven after each session. Puja’s capacity to envelope my journey with such care and attention was really impressive.
I wanted help with working on being constantly tired and looking for the opportunity to step out of the grind to make some big impacts. I enjoyed learning about breakfast, something I was previously too busy to do! I was impressed by how much I learnt about being able to better manage my time, cut down on distractions, and do the things that actually matter. My biggest achievement since coaching with Puja is that the business has grown, we’ve taken on new staff and I’ve had time to put together a business strategy for the next 9 months that excites me. Also, it’s not just about the coaching, I learnt a lot about running and marketing a business from Puja too.
The group coaching was the thing I was most worried about as I'm not very good at talking about my feelings with the people closest to me let alone people I'd just met. Puja had a way of putting me at ease - I felt safe, un-judged and supported. The coaching sessions were challenging (some more than others) but actually being in a group was so much more rewarding than being on my own as I realised everyone else had their own s*** going on and it was easier to be open when everyone else was to.
Thank you for being there at a time when I needed you more than I realised. Your wisdom, challenge, love and encouragement to be a better person will stay with me always. Keep doing what you are doing because you are fab at it!
I don’t think I can fully articulate just how grateful I am to have met you this year and how much you have supported and guided me over the last 7 months. My life has truly changed for the better and I wouldn’t have been able to make those changes without you. You have shown me how to recognise all my qualities and abilities both professionally and personally which has given me so much more confidence and belief in myself!
My husband suffers from severe anxiety. As a business owner In the hospitality industry, he is subject to ongoing and relentless pressure which can often trigger an attack. The work which Puja has done with him has enabled him to recognise triggers, and given him the tools he needs to be able to rationalise situations, and carefully navigate solutions without getting overwhelmed.
Her coaching and support have got me through some of my most difficult times both personally and professionally as well as also celebrating the wins. Puja has vast knowledge and experience and knows what she is talking about. I would love to recommend Puja. Get in touch with her!
I felt comfortable to open up and felt trusted from the outset. If you're looking to grow yourself and your mindset, Puja is a wonderful coach to work with.
The idea of carving some time for myself without feeling any guilt was very appealing - as was taking some time to actually think and ponder about issues I was facing. I really appreciate Puja's ‘no nonsense’ approach.
I attended Puja's session on self love. I wasn't sure what to expect but found Puja warm and welcoming. Throughout the session there were little activities that we did individually and were able to share our thoughts with the rest of the group if we wanted to. Puja was really skilled at articulating the journey of self love and encouraging everyone so that we all got as much as we could out of the session.
