“Extraordinary… Inspiring… an example of how self-belief could lead you anywhere” – BBC
International Inspirational Speaker, Self-Help Author, Success Coach
‘Growing up in India in a town known as the crime capital and in an environment of poverty, I never dreamed of being a coach and helping others get out of their own ‘poverty’ thinking. My world was full of deprivation on all levels and I had no emotional support, praise or positive feedback but plenty of abuse (physical, mental and sexual). I lived in an environment of scarcity thinking and had no idea that abundant thinking even existed! I was at times very depressed and suicidal.
However, from somewhere within, I found a determination to change my lot in life and with $8,000 of borrowed money made my way to the UK to enroll on a diploma course. I spoke little English and knew little about the country I had made my new home, but I was determined to prove my family and teachers wrong and prove to myself that I was a man of worth.
I experienced some pretty awful living environments here in the UK too. I ran out of money more than once, borrowed more money and washed dishes in a local restaurant to put food in my belly while I was studying. But always determined to better myself I stuck with it to reach my goal of getting a good job in the UK. And when I reached that goal (as an IT consultant for British Telecoms), I realised that there was more. More to learn and more to life.
I discovered that self development wasn’t just about learning a new skill to get a better job it was about learning to get a better life. I have trained as an NLP Practitioner, Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and Time Change Therapist . I completed a Diploma in Psychology and attended courses in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy alongside many personal development workshops. I studied Transactional Analysis (psychotherapy) at the University of Oxford and support university students in the UK and South Asia for their thesis/research work related to Positive Psychology.
I have been a volunteer for various charities and NGOs for the past few years. Whether its polio eradication & AIDS awareness for the World Health Organisation or teaching life skills (mentioned in my book) to some young orphans in India or the projects for the Red Cross, it has always been a nice and fulfilling experience.

I am now a regular guest on radio and have been interviewed by stations worldwide including the BBC. I’ve done motivational shows for well-being TV channels and have been featured in several national newspapers and health magazines. (click here to listen, read or watch)
I have learned how to change my self beliefs, my thoughts and my self-talk to change that scarcity thinking into abundant thinking. I’ve learnt to be thankful and I’ve learnt how to be happy (with or without money in my pocket).
Now I’d like to share what I’ve learnt with you so that You can be Rich, Fit, Confident and Happy.’
