EMPOWERING WOMEN'S COACH and WELLNESS PRACTITIONER
Welcome, I'm Pratima, a dedicated champion of women. I help professional women who aspire to be the best version of themselves, to lead successful, empowered healthy lives with impact.
I left the corporate world some years ago completely unsatisfied with the lack of integrity in my life. It was only when I started to repair trauma from my childhood, turned inwards, and reconnected with the natural feminine cycles of my body that I invited integration, vitality and peace, to be an expression of my life.
This created a deep longing in me to study and practice as many pathways as I could, leading to being in service to women and children. I am a sacred womb advocate, and believe a woman derives her innate power from this space as the very core and epicentre from where deep wisdom arises.
I am a student of ayurveda and have been using it successfully to support my lifestyle. My mother has also taught me many traditional decoctions originating from India to aid women with a painful menstruation, lactating mothers and post natal women, which I love sharing with my clients. The diversity of my eastern yogic influences, merged with my love for western therapeutic measures is the impetus for my work.
I became a coach because it enabled me to set clear goals and intentions for myself, gave structure to the diverse areas of study I was immersed in and I valued the act of accountability which had been missing from my life. Coaching has also given me the confidence to let go of beliefs that were holding me back.
I have had the good fortune of studying, receiving private mentoring, deepening my professional and spiritual development with some of the most pioneering teachers in Women's health, wellness, spirituality and energy psychology. I offer immense respect and gratitude to Aditi Devi Ma, Swami Nardanand, Dr Deepa Apte, Marguerite Rigoglioso, Uma Dinsmore Tuli, DeAnna L’am, and Alexandra Pope, for their teachings and wisdom.
