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
Confidence can often be a ‘fluctuating’ state of mind. One day you could be full of confidence and on another day, you could be completely lacking in it. Sometimes, after gaining confidence following a particular achievement or successful completion of a goal, you can forget you were ever confident or motivated at all. Why is this, and why is it often difficult to maintain consistent confidence despite past achievements? And if you happen to be a person who believes that you have never been confident at all in your life, think about something in your past that has given you a great sense of achievement or joy, no matter how small or how long ago, that can be tapped into and projected into your future.
Confidence comes from within and you can take simple and gradual steps towards your goal of being confident by altering how you project yourself physically and by refocusing your mental state.
Confidence and achievement coaching is suitable for people of all walks of life including professionals, tradespeople, executives, entertainers, performers and students. No matter who you are, you could benefit from confidence and achievement coaching at certain times in your life.
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.

"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."
"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".
"I have known Raj Malkani for a great number of years he is honest, humorous and sincere,
A trustworthy person".
"Thank you for being such an amazing coach. From our first meeting, you really help 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 was 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".
"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.
