Shivani recently started a forum called ExpressO which is conversations over coffee with strangers on a pre-decided topic once a month. The forum has received a lot of reciognition through various media publications.

So – why Life Coaching?

Here’s Shivani, in her own words – “I am a people person! For me, life is all about helping people building a healthy and happy life and also having an amazing relationship with themselves as well with others. Being a go-getter, full of life and positivity, I am able to transfer this energy to my clients. At the same time, I am down to earth, having experienced the realities of life closely. I am a forthright person so the idea of having a coaching class is like chatting with an old friend without any judgements, just honest heart to heart talks, so that I can help them with their own solutions. In short I would say “Passion becomes a Career!”

And why did she choose Symbiosis Coaching for her Life Coach training needs?

“I was thoroughly impressed with the way Symbiosis Coaching answered each and every query of mine patiently”, says Shivani. “They never pushed me or chased me for enrolling, they gave me all the time to make my decision which really gave me space to zero down on them!! I had a lot of questions before selecting the right institute and after speaking to a couple of them I found this institute to be very upright and clear about everything they offered from day one. In terms of the content, support and instructor quality, I feel there can’t be anyone better than them, extremely methodical and impactful content. I actually used to wait for my Monday class thanks to my sweet instructor Bina Jhaveri, a very patient and loving coach!”

“I am now running a successful coaching practice”, Shivani adds, “and I actually thank god from the bottom of my heart that I was able to get into this. The smile I see on my clients’ face post sessions is really rewarding and satisfying. From helping a lady who was going through a bad marriage to helping a client streamline his staff and increase productivity, each experience has been extremely satisfying!”
