Harpreet has an M.Sc (Gold Medal) in child development and a B.Ed (Gold Medal). She is an entrepreneur and in her free time, has been working with cancer patients on a voluntary basis.
So – why Life Coaching?
Here’s Harpreet, in her own words – “My husband is a cancer survivor, and during that tough phase in life, I realized that I had the ability to connect with people and also how supportive relationships can help people overcome this disease in a positive way. So I decided to work with patients on a voluntary basis as part of Indian cancer society. I now want to take this further and work as a Certified Wellness Coach.”
And why did she choose Symbiosis Coaching for her Life Coach training needs?
“I enjoy learning, so after completing two courses in counseling – one in non directive approach and other in REBT (RATIONAL EMOTIVE BEHAVIOURIAL THEORY), I was eager to do something more. One of my friends recommended Symbiosis Coaching, and I found that it met my needs. When I spoke to Sunil, whatever doubts I had were put to rest immediately. I am extremely happy with the course. It prepares you very well to launch your coaching business. I find the course content and material to be excellent. And the entire Symbiosis team is very responsive to any queries.”
And how is her Coaching practice going?
“I have been working with patients for very long, and I have seen very positive results especially when it comes to accepting the disease as part of their lives, and then working towards its treatment”, says Harpreet. “Completing the program has added to my credentials, and as a Certified Wellness Coach people take me more seriously. While I was completing my program, many of my practice clients have seen amazing results. And all I have done is follow all the skills mentioned in the course material! It has helped me get many testimonials, references and the immense pleasure of assisting someone in their journey from dis-ease to ease.”

And what does she think about Symbiosis Coaching?
“I chose Symbiosis coaching for my Life Coach certification needs because as soon as I went through their web site I saw it had a flow and a process which I could not see in any other Life Coach training institute. With most other programs, it was as if you just pay them and they certify you whether you learn anything or not. Symbiosis is definitely not such a program! The course content, support, instructor quality and convenience is very powerful. I would like to thank the entire Symbiosis team for their committed support towards me as I completed this Certification. “
Rasika has close to 20 years of professional experience in the areas of social development, media, qualitative research and ethnography. A bulk of her experience has been in qualitative research.
Rasika graduated with History, economics and politics and dis a PGD in Social Communications and Media. She has also trained in NLP.

Rasika enjoys art, theatre, music, dance and craft. She loves to read and likes to engage with friends and family. She enjoys travelling very much and balances out her vacations between educational vacations, historical vacations and sacking on the beach kind of vacations.
Why did she choose Life Coaching as a career?
“Because this is what I have wanted to do all along”, says Rasika. “As someone close to me says- it fits me like a glove!”
And why did she choose Symbiosis Coaching?
“I was looking for an effective and comprehensive course that was also reasonable in terms of price. Synchronicity led me to speak to a friend who had done the same course. I liked what he said about the course and the price was attractive.”
Here’s what Rasika says:
“Overall I enjoyed the course a lot. I thought it was comprehensive. I noticed that I was initially resistant to the several sessions on marketing, only to realize later that those were perhaps what I needed the most!. I loved Dr. Brons? teaching style and experiences.
I particularly found the sessions on belief systems, structure and process, asking questions, and listening skills the most useful. I especially enjoyed the ?Staying in Business? lecture as a concluding talk to the course.
The student area was very useful and I found the supplementary reading interesting and robust.
All my questions got answered promptly and I appreciated the support from the support team. I have recommended the course to a friend who has already enrolled in the program.”
Rasika has already started hr coaching practice – Mind the Gap – with a few clients whom she contacted through her social network. This includes finishing a series with one of them, who called her a month later saying that she noticed a huge change in her life!
“I have other regular clients with whom I have been doing sustained sessions. I find the ‘How to Coach’ document very useful and refer to it for several inputs when I am faced with different coaching situations.”
“I have contacted various companies to work as an Executive Coach. I have already created a brochure and do regular telephone calls with a friend of mine who is also a Life Coach. I have also designed a workshop on stereotypes and conflict.”
Rasika is also in the process of contacting various business schools so that she can help them and coach their graduates prior to placements.
Rasika’s Life Coaching career is taking off and we wish her the very best!
Morli began her journey as a qualified clinical and community psychologist, and as a therapist, counselor, and teacher. She soon became an independent consultant working on health issues.

She has worked extensively on capacity building, reviews, evaluations, assessments, programme planning and various programme management aspects. Morli has vast experience in the fiels of mentoring, training, module development, documentation and capacity needs assessment.
“My experience confirms my belief that the right attitude and right approach always bring positive results as well as client acceptance”, says Morli. “This has proven to be a successful guiding principle for me over the years in working with a wide range of groups and communities including school children, adolescents, youth, NCC cadets, army men and their wives, unskilled and skilled workers, NGOs, Government officials, bureaucrats, school teachers, school principals and headmasters, doctors, as well as vulnerable and marginalised populations such as sex workers and homosexuals.
Why did she choose Life Coaching as a career?
“I believe and have always experienced that whenever something comes from within ? and naturally – that’s the right time to pursue it”, says Morli. “And this was the right time for me to pursue Life Coaching.” “On the professional front, I realized that for any service where communication is key, there comes a phase – a time, a very specific space, recognition of a gap, and a precise point – that needs a “big action” approach. When such a phase is reached, Life Coaching skills are invaluable.”
“And I quickly realized”, Morli adds, “that as soon as I became a Life Coach, I started getting inquiries from people who were seeking solutions for their issues and concerns. And I came to realize that this profession is widely recognized world over.”
And why did she choose Symbiosis Coaching?
“Currently, Symbiosis is the only Life Coaching program available in India. I found the course content was very conducive to my needs. I very much appreciated the promptness and the supportive interaction from Symbiosis whenever I had a query or a concern. I enjoyed the whole philosophy of this program which is more of ‘ownership in learning’. Thanks very much to the Symbiosis Team!” Morli has already started her Coaching practice.
“I have always communicated with people and helped them connect to their own selves and enabled them to know their own selves better. That is the whole idea behind my ‘I Know Me!’ initiative”, says Morli.
“I have already started approaching health professionals, academic institutions, recreational institutions and clubs. The intention behind this whole initiative is to reach out to, and make this service more available to youth. Once I complete the Master Spirit Course, I also plan to add religious and faith based organizations to my network.”
Soniya has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She is a psychotherapist and a school counselor. Soniya also has great interest in occult subjects and since the past nine years, she has been practicing Tarot Card Reading.
Why did she choose Life Coaching as a career?
“I strongly believe that we don’t choose our career in fact, profession chooses us”, says Soniya. “My passion to help others inspired me to be a guiding force in their life.”
And why Symbiosis Coaching?
Here’s Soniya again – “I chose Symbiosis Coaching as it’s a prestigious brand. After doing the course, I felt I was right in choosing Symbiosis as I am extremely happy with the quality of the course content. The audio lectures are of very good quality, and the best part is that it’s very comfortable to listen to the MP3s at our own convenience. Above all, we were very well supported and guided through the program.”
Soniya has already started her Life Coaching practice. “I am very happy as my clients are showing very good response”, says Soniya. “In fact, they wait eagerly for their sessions. It was an amazing experience with Symbiosis, I would love to join Symbiosis for further courses”, she adds.

And why Symbiosis Coaching?
“My friend strongly recommended Symbiosis Coaching to me”, says Anushka. “I had been searching for a good program that would suit my needs, including a reasonable fee and a convenient learning environment. Both these purposes were solved with the CMSLC program offered by Symbiosis. The content is excellent and self-learnable. The support was amazing. Every communication was responded to very well, within a few hours. Flexibility was an inherent part of the program.”
And what about the future?
Anushka has already started applying coaching principles to her solutions. “I have helped elevating confidence in two young girls of 18 years to continue in their jobs despite challenges at work, says Anushka. “I guided them through their decision making process of continuing at their current jobs, get some for work experience, and then look for a better opportunity with the skills they have gained.” “One another person I have helped is me!”, says Anushka. “After 10 years of work experience, I quit work looking for flexible working hours. The change that I had to go through from an extremely busy life to no work at all was taking a toll on my health. However, with coaching lessons from Symbiosis, I have gained a lot of clarity in terms long term vision and perseverance. I am thankful for being able to gain confidence and feel much better about myself as well”.

Welcome to the world of Certified Life Coaches, Amit!
Mr. Balasubramnyam lives in Kakinada – a town in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. He lives there with his wife and two daughters.
Mr. Balasubramanyam is an Electrical Engineer and works as Director (Technical) with M/S Vmax Power Controls Pvt. Ltd. His company manufactured electrical control panels. Mr. Balasubramanyam is responsible for Product development, designing and implementing systems for quality assurance, recruitment and training of people to meet the company’s growing business demands.
Mr. Balasubramanyam says that making a difference in people’s lives has been a passion all his life. This is his calling.
Mr. Balasubramanyam heard about Symbiosis from his friends and colleagues and after extensive research, realized that it was indeed the best Coach Training institute in India. That clinched the deal for him!
Mr. Balasubramanyam has been coaching on an informal basis for some time, but this is the first time he is getting into it as a business. His website should be up soon and he is quite excited about it!
Ms. Mirchandani is a woman of many qualifications and many skills! She has a BSc, an LLB and a Masters in Computer Applications. She works as the Head of Department of Computer Science at the Hiranandani Foundation School, and has won the Best Teacher award there!
So why did Ms. Mirchandani choose to be a Life Coach?
Here’s what she says – “I am from a spiritual background and counseling is my forte. I chose Life Coaching because of my need to help people get answers to their own life solutions so that they could empower themselves rather than depend on others.”
And why did she choose Symbiosis Coaching for her certification needs?
“The content on the Symbiosis Coaching website appealed to me”, says Renu. “The faculty and the administrators at Symbiosis Coaching made me very comfortable and were always there to assist me at every juncture throughout my six month course. It is a great program and I am glad I chose it!”
Ms. Mirchandani has started working as a Life Coach and has had great success in bringing smiles to people’s lives!
Mr. Ramakrishnan Murali Shankar has graduated as a Certified Life Coach from Symbiosis Coaching.
Mr. Shankar is a Management Consultant. He worked in the corporate world for over 14 years before he set up his own consulting business. He has been on his own for about 11 years and has been extremely successful. He has trained / mentored thousands of people in some of the best corporations across the world. He has a very impressive list of clients and is a preferred facilitator for most corporate houses.
“I don many hats”, says Mr. Shankar. “A trainer, a mentor, CEO Coach, subject matter expert, professional singer, actor, family man and a travel enthusiast! I believe in the power of reality and I want people to succeed with the power of reality and nothing else.”
A leading bank in India has made a short film on a life threatening incident which happened to Mr. Shankar. The film is shown as part of a training workshop that focuses on “Passion at Work”. He met with a serious accident many years back and was virtually written off. He was confined to bed more than a year with multiple fractures in his hand, leg, a burn injury on his stomach and a head injury. He braved the odds with sheer conviction and a burning desire to live life.
The video of Mr. Shankar’s unbelievable fight and sheer determination is available on you tube:
What attracted Mr. Shankar to the field of Life Coaching. Here it is, in his own words – “I firmly believe that each and every individual born in this world has immense talent and they need to be made aware of the same. Everybody has a right to be successful and I would love to coach them into being successful. Moreover I have met and trained thousands of people and I find that they just do not want to exercise options in coming out of problems. They are too mired in external beliefs and self made perceptions, not realizing that they are the only ones who could make a difference to their lives.”
And why Symbiosis Coaching? Here he is again – “I did quite a bit of research before signing up for the CLC program. I found that the Symbiosis methodology was simple yet superb, the support mechanism was amazing, the flexibility of learning and putting the learning into practice, the quality of material being world class and above all at a very competitive price.”
And what are his plans for the future? Here is what Mr. Shankar says – “I have been coaching for quite a while now. However post the Symbiosis intervention, my coaching skills have been sharpened and I have started looking at things from other people?s point of view. I must admit that one persons experience need not be sacrosanct. It could be a guide line. People have to experience it themselves to gain a profound experience. Also the power of listening and intuition are great value adds to my profession.
I have recently signed up with a leading IT company to coach two of their senior executives for a period of a year. We have just started and the client is already beginning to see results. Thanks so much Symbiosis!”
Thank you Mr. Shankar, and thanks for sharing your wonderful life experience with us. We are honored to have you as our graduate.

As a team lead, she has always believes in “Lead by example”. Neelam has been the nominee for “Surpass Award” and “Recognition of Excellence” award in the corporate organizations that she has worked for.
In addition, Neelam also has a background in teaching for six years. She understand that coaching and motivation are critical in educational institutions for both students and teachers. She believes that the best way a student learns is by breaking complex matter into simple forms and simple examples.
“As a coach, it is my privilege and honor to break complex problems for teacher and students into simple form and motivate them to pursue their goals with passion”, says Neelam. “As a student I have received many awards for General Proficiency, Elocution and Creative Writing.”
So what brought Neelam into the field of Life Coaching?
“I am passionate about Life Coaching”, says Neelam. “It is a kind of service that gives me peace of mind by helping people live their dreams. I am confident about my coaching mission and also confident that I instill confidence in others. I am compassionate towards others while being assertive at the same time.

What has her experience been with Symbiosis, we asked Neelam.
Here’s what Neelam says – “Symbiosis Coaching is the most systematic and most convenient school on-line for Life Coach Certification. It is accredited by the Certified Coaches Alliance. It has excellent course which provides all the guidelines to be a successful life coach. The administration is very co-operative and supportive and they give prompt responses to any question asked.

Though there are many motivational speakers, my areas of expertise vary tremendously. I am aware of the increased want and need of coaching in Corporate and Educational Institutions. With my passion, confidence, courage and deep desire to be of service, I will bring value-added coaching. My success depends on the success of my clients.

Mr. Justin Rabindra graduated from Symbiosis Coaching as a Certified Life Coach and a Certified Master Spirit Life Coach.
“I work as a trainer in an advertising agency (Ogilvy & Mather) in New Delhi”, says Justin. “There’s a host of training that I conduct and organize in the areas of Client servicing, soft skills, leadership skills and proprietary advertising planning and execution. After the course from Symbiosis my training has changed from what was predominantly a lecture style of instruction to a coaching style of self discovery.
Justin is into travel photography. He has held two solo exhibitions in New Delhi and one partnering with an artist in Cape Town. His photographs are absolutely amazing and readers should check out his website:
Justin also trains post graduate students at an Advertising & Marketing school in CRM. He conducts workshops for companies wishing to make their company more customer friendly.
“Recently I have started on a series of training and coaching interventions for NGOs involved in HIV reduction among drug addicts and sex workers, that are part of a Bill & Melinda gates funded project in the north-east of India, on Writing and Communication skills and a train-the-trainer workshop”, adds Justin. He also teaches music to the Sunday School kids in church.
All in all, Mr. Rabindra is a master of many fields – a true renaissance man!
And why Life Coaching?
“I think of Life Coaching as more of a way of life, and of living and communicating than a career, and I find aspects of what I learnt affecting several areas of my life including the way I communicate with my daughter, the way I deal with colleagues, my writing style, to name a few. I also find I’ve become more patient and curious about people who otherwise might have irritated me with their behavior or things they say.
I hope to be able to coach people and help them become the best they are capable of. I find so many of them struggling through life just accepting what life throws at them without taking charge. I hope to help them identify what they really want and work towards it every day. And show them that they have a choice.”
And why did Justin choose Symbiosis Coaching for his Life Coach training needs? Here he is, in his own words – “I chose this course because it fulfilled my need immediately. I liked the idea of receiving audio files of tele-classes and listing to them at my convenience. I liked the testimonies of other students posted on the site. And I found it affordable. My experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Dr Randin Brons is a skilled, experienced and brilliant coach-trainer; the course was comprehensive and complete in all respects. Symbiosis is also so prompt in handling queries and doubts. I felt coached as I learnt about coaching, in the way the audio files came on time each week, the way the exam was conducted, the responses I received, and the overall promptness and professionalism of Symbiosis. So much so that I’ve decided to upgrade to Master Life Coach.”
Justin has already started his coaching practice by coaching the head of office and head of finance in his office (both senior to him). He has many other proposals awaiting confirmation. All of these are paid.
We wish Justin the very best! It has been a pleasure to have him as part of the Symbiosis family and we have no doubts whatsoever that he is on his way to becoming a great Life Coach!

“Even though I was mentoring and coaching people in the organizations I worked before, it was never in a structured way”, says Satish. “However when I came to know what Symbiosis was offering, I just could not miss this great opportunity. Nothing will come close to me being satisfied than when I know that I have played my role in impacting people’s lives positively.
And why did he choose Symbiosis Coaching for his Life Coach training needs?
“I happened to come across Symbiosis when I was searching the Internet for Life Coaching and I would like to reiterate here that the first impression is always the best impression”, says Satish. “One look at the Symbiosis website and its content convinced me that I was looking at a professionally run setup. As my other fellow coaches I would have to agree that the costing and the learning methodology are impressive and the biggest advantage is its flexibility. Further to this, interacting with Mr. Sunil Lala cleared any doubts whatsoever in my mind about the whole setup.”
“Listening to Dr Randin lectures is inspiring and I have not yet come across anyone so far who have such an impact in a few minutes of listening to”, Satish says. “The course material and lectures is excellent and the additional support forms cover almost every area of Life Coaching. Further to this I would also like to mention that the additional materials provided by Symbiosis are a must read and priceless.”
“I would like to congratulate Symbiosis in presenting a tailor made Coach Certification program. I am sure that in a short period of time Symbiosis Coaching would be setting Benchmarks in Life Coaching certification.”

I zeroed in on Symbiosis and after a couple of interesting conversations with the Chief Education Officer, was convinced that Symbiosis was offering me a good course. I enjoyed the experience tremendously and learnt a lot from it!”
Arti has been practicing for the past few months and has now decided to formalize her business. Her Coaching practice is called “CoachnMe” and she is in the process of setting up the website. Seems like quite an exciting career lies ahead of her!

Their timely delivery of rich lessons with practice sheets and audio classes provides great insight into the vast and evolving subject of coaching. The CEO, Mr. Sunil Lala is one of the finest professional and learning specialists I have ever come across in my life in terms of his courteous behavior, 24X7 support and guidance/answers to queries.
