Success is not born: it's made!
Start the journey of your success Today!
Hi, I am Lila and welcome,
I have been in the helping profession for a couple of decades through my counselling and life coaching work. My experiences are very versatile, multi-cultural and international, and I always feel honoured to assist others in their journey. I enjoy my work, and perhaps like you, I have experienced life's very lows and highs: in relationships, love, career, finances and lots more. I am an accredited wellbeing life coach and maintain a holistic approach when helping people. A holistic approach looks at your total wellbeing: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual, also known as a body, mind and soul approach.
What about you?
People come to coaching for various reasons. In most cases, even if your goals and dreams are clear, you might still find yourself in the dark and not achieving your desired results, being passive, procrastinating or not executing the right actions. You may not know why you feel stuck or are unproductive and therefore reaching out is the first step in the right direction to your success. It's time for YOU now!
How I work
Understanding the human psyche and human growth is a big passion of mine, which resulted in various studies such as a Masters' in intercultural Communication & Relationships, BSc in Psychotherapy, Wellbeing Life Coaching, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Mindfulness and Advaita Vedanta (spirituality).
To help you achieve success in all areas of your life I usually draw on quite a few methods, modalities and techniques that will suit your needs, and derived from life coaching, psychology, sociology, mindfulness, emotionally focused therapy, and experiential learnings. We are all unique beings, looking for solutions that will best suit us personally; and that is what I provide, a tailored approach. I work with individuals and couples.
Below are some areas I have helped individuals and couples in the last 12 months as a Wellbeing Life Coach:
* Relationships: includes dating, wedding or marital stress, break-ups, divorce, extra-marital affairs, bi-cultural or intercultural issues, issues with trust and commitment, religious clash of values, jealousy, intimacy, emotional bonding
* Career: includes starting your own business, career change/promotion, international assignment (moving abroad), work/life balance
* Anxiety, Depression: includes social anxiety, generalised anxiety, back to work (office) anxiety, everyday worries
* Addictions: includes gambling, alcohol, sex, drugs, food
* Family issues: includes family ties, generational family issues & negative patterns, parenting, family planning
* Finances: includes debts, wealth planning, financial control
* Purpose & Meaning: bereavement, death of a loved one, the meaning of life
In a nutshell: working with me is interactive, result-driven, thought-provoking, creative, compassionate and fun! I work both online and face to face (central London).

When to use Coaching: Use Holistic Coaching when you need to understand, clarify and achieve your goals or if you know your goals but feel pretty 'stuck' and not getting the results you desire. It can be both your personal and or professional life that you would like to improve and reach different highs, be it: purpose & meaning, relationships (including dating, divorce), family planning, career, finances, starting a new business, a move abroad, or any particular project or goal you would like to work on and achieve results.
When to use psychotherapy/counselling when: Use psychotherapy/counselling if you are going through a difficult time, mentally and emotionally, and perhaps dealing with quite traumatic personal issues. Or maybe you can't immediately pinpoint why you feel so low, anxious or worried. You feel you are holding back but would like to resolve these and feel relieved and free.
Do you recognise the following?
You have lots of goals and dreams but lack the motivation to start or you may have started but given up halfway through because you lack confidence or self-belief to carry on or you find the current pandemic quite depressing and lack trust to start anything but realize quite well you need help if you want to succeed.
You are not happy with your body and in need of a big change. You want to tackle your overweight which you also gained during the lockdown due to Covid-19. It's not just the body you are concerned about but you also considering adopting a healthier lifestyle i.e interested in good nutritious food, changing diets, keep fit and maintaining healthy relationships etc. This is a big project for you and you are ready to reach out for help.
You understand that personal growth and personal development are vital to becoming an all-round success in life often encompasses all three aspects- body, mind and soul. You've always invested in yourself in terms of growth and want to reach much higher levels in your personal development and ready to embark on that journey.

A quote that is close to my heart:
Life doesn't get easier, you just get stronger!
Marcus - "I wasn't sure about being coached but knew that I needed to talk with a professional. I came across Lila's profile and after the first telephone contact (which was free for 30 min) I decided to take up 6 sessions with her. I had a rough idea of the areas I wanted to work on such as my weight (quite overweight), divorce and issues with infidelity. Lila was really able to get to the bottom of some of my persisting issues and we worked very hard in the sessions. With her help, I was able to find some clarity in my messy life. The 'homework' she further gave me helped to ease my stress and anxiety at home. I still continue with journaling my thoughts and feelings (which was one of my homework) and have noticed to feel very relieved afterwards. I hope to take some more sessions again with Lila'
Sharon - "Lila's sessions helped me a lot when I was having a relationship breakdown just before the lockdown. The sessions helped me to understand the reasons behind the breakdown and why I remained so long in an emotionally abusive relationship with my then-boyfriend. Lila's sessions gave me the strength and courage to choose for myself and to accept myself as I am. Thank you Lila!'
