Raj Malkani - Confidence, Achievement & Performance Coach and Hypnotherapist
Creating your own success story begins with an empowering conversation. Be inspired to achieve the goals in life that matter to you.
Confidence and Achievement Coaching
As a Confidence and Achievement coach, my primary role is to increase your positivity, confidence and self-esteem, the purpose of which is to enable you to achieve success in all areas of your life.
I will carefully guide you to find your own solutions so that you can become an independent and consistently effective decision-maker because ultimately, better decisions lead to better results and a better life!
I will ask you questions that will open up your mind and way of thinking, some of which you might find challenging and yet, empowering. I will set you tasks that will push the boundaries of your capabilities and which will assist you in setting your own achievable goals in alignment with your life purpose, values, beliefs, strengths, skill-set and personality.
I won’t let you off the hook and will be committed to help you reach your full potential. Sometimes I may simply remind you of your key qualities which you may have forgotten all about and have hidden away in the back of your mind.
Confidence and Achievement coaching is suitable for people from all professions & vocations and I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and enabling you to effectively pursue aspirations in any area of your life.
With warm regards,
Artist, Entertainer & Performance Coaching
Having worked in the music industry for over 35 years as an artist, producer, songwriter, sound engineer, remixer, independent record label owner, publisher and artist manager, I have a deep and thorough understanding of the creative industry's 'ups and downs' and how this can affect the mental health of artists and creative professionals of all kinds. When success finally comes, you think you have 'made it' at last! You then have a good 'run' and things can only push on from here!
Then all of a sudden, the A&R manager, producer or director who signed you, leaves you high and dry for pastures new and leaves you in the hands of a corporate machine and you start to feel like an unwanted or adopted child! Before you know it, your record label, theatre or film company etc decides to release you from your contract and your confidence hits at an all-time low after being on such a high. This period in your life can be critical!
Do you have the mental strength to cope with the downs and well as the more recent ups? Do you turn to drink, smoking or even drugs to help you to cope? There is another way to get through this very challenging time in your life. I have personally experienced these highs and lows myself and know many other artistic professionals who have experienced this emotional rollercoaster. I can enable you to get through this difficult period in a positive and empowering way and help get you back on track with my coaching and therapy programme.

“May I just say what an amazing coach Raj is! From the minute I started the sessions, Raj made me feel nothing but comfortable and confident! He is always understanding and most of all trustworthy! I highly recommend this programme to anyone whether you feel like you need it or not.
I’m halfway through the scheme and the difference in my way of thinking has changed already. Raj is truly amazing at what he does and I look forward to completing more sessions with him. Raj has also offered me online sessions and the flexibility is perfect! Nothing but 5 stars from me!”
— Becca, London
“I have recently completed my first online session with Raj and I have to say I am totally overwhelmed by how much one session has changed my way of thinking already.
Raj has helped me to tap into talents long since forgotten which I feel has increased my self confidence already.
Just this first session has encouraged me to take steps towards changing my current path and focus. I can’t wait to see what’s next!
Thanks so much for making me feel so comfortable, Raj. I’m very much looking forward to our next session”.

Online coaching started March 2020
“I am in the middle of my coaching sessions with Raj Malkani and already I have seen such improvements in my personal and professional development.
Raj maintains the professionalism of a coach but at the same time, he has become a great friend! I underestimated the effects of a coaching journey and I do not regret this. It has helped me to dig deep into my mind and I have already implemented the advice and self learning in my life whilst the coaching is ongoing.
Raj is an amazing coach on the basis that he has a growth mindset, and like me I felt an instant connection which helped me to open up and share my thoughts. It means we can relate on many aspects of how we think or approach a situation.
I have learnt how to remove my negativity and put aside the things I cannot control. To instead focus on what is positive and that is in my control. I feel more confident as I have gone through a 'mind detox' and have analysed how to find those well sought out skills which were inside me. I just needed to discover these, put them into practise and appreciate the present moment!”
The journey continues...
— Zahid, Optometrist
"I came to Raj via recommendation of a close relative. At the time I was in a state of limbo, my motivation, something I’d been struggling with for five-plus years, was at an all-time low. Before meeting Raj I was doubtful, I thought no one could possibly “cure” me of something that was inside my own head. Though after listening to his process I decided to participate, as I was desperate to get out of my situation.
The results?… I’m sitting here motivated as ever but more importantly, with the confidence that I’ll be able to manage and maintain that motivation in the future. With Raj’s knowledge, efforts and the tools he provided, coupled with my desire to improve, we managed to give a young man (myself) his drive back and a new sense of anticipation, to see how far and beyond this new sustainable drive will take him.
I am highly grateful to Raj and for having found his services, he’s a great guy on a personal level and I highly recommend him to those desiring to start making those key positive steps forward."
— KK, London
”I highly recommend Raj. He totally understood what approach and solution I needed. I took away great tools to reinforce a new positive, empowering way forward. I can add to these and utilise what he taught me to gain calm, focus and the results I desire with immediate results. Thankyou".
— Caroline, Kent
"Thank you for being such an amazing coach. From our first meeting, you really helped me a lot in solving my issues in a way I'd never thought of before, helping me focus on the things that really important to me. You have taught me about life and perseverance.
I learned how to change my thinking positively and to be confident with myself. Your style of coaching is very calm and positive. Our sessions were eye opening and helped me focus on my goals and the results that I want to achieve. You're action oriented and you really want to help others to progress.
Not only that, you have made an impact in my life and I am still improving day by day. I am so grateful to be your client and I would recommend you as a coach to anyone who asks me.
Thank you again for your time, sharing insights and inspiration! I am blessed our paths have crossed and I hope to see you again in the future".
— Sumaiyah, Malaysia
"A trustworthy, approachable and diligent coach who will give you all the tools you need to unlock your potential. Thanks Raj!"

The ups and downs of fluctuating confidence can affect us all at different stages of our lives or during challenging times. No one is really exempt from this including people from all backgrounds, professions, and vocations.
In my own experience around 12 years ago, I was sitting my professional accountancy exams after spending over 20 years in the music industry. During the latter stages of the course and in the context of various family pressures, I suffered from severe exam stress and anxiety. Having marginally failed all my pre-final papers at my first sitting and achieving slightly lower results at subsequent sittings, my confidence was at an all-time low.
In 2008, I attended a Master-course in ‘Applied Exam Techniques'. My accountancy trainer was extremely engaging and was also a Certified NLP Practitioner. He encouraged me to attend his ‘Exam Confidence’ classes and from that point, I never looked back. I qualified in 2009 after re-sitting my final paper for the third time. Through my new learnings and discoveries, I had finally reached my goal and my confidence was back!
This was a very empowering experience for me and after a successful career, I now want to share my story and assist others who find themselves unable to break through some of the challenges life throws at them.
