Ms. Vishalakshi K.M., CLC

Vishalakshi has a Masters Degree in Computer Applications from Bangalore University, India. She works at a software company and is responsible for cloud based solutions. “I love learning new things”, says Vishalakshi, “and my favorite pastime is solving logic and analytical puzzles. I am learning salsa and singing, I love cooking for friends, I want to learn to be a bar tender. I love to travel and interact with local people.”

So – why Life Coaching?

“I love working with kids, so in my free time, I tutor them in math and science and I also provide a lot of career coaching. I have two kids, one of them is adopted and I give a lot of guidance to new parents (biological and adopted)”, says Vishalakshi. “Though I hold a corporate job, it doesn’t bring me as much satisfaction as I get when I do these things. So I was looking for new ways to hone these skills when I chanced upon the Symbiosis Coaching website – and the rest is history!”

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

“Symbiosis seemed like very convenient option since it is offered as a web based class, and at the end of it you receive a certificate. What made it even more attractive was that you can apply the training hours towards an ICF credential!

I enjoyed the experience with Symbiosis. Our course instructor Divya was extremely good”, says Vishalakshi. “She was empathetic to our backgrounds and was endlessly patient in answering all our questions.

“The course material is FANTASTIC. I couldn’t emphasize that enough. The students library, the ASC everything. Kudos!” !”
