Certified UM Trainer/Teacher

I have a Masters in Psychology, PGCHR from XLRI management institute and have worked for over 14 years including being an HR professional. For the past 6 years, I worked as a clinic manager and case manager at a child psychiatry clinic. Here, I realised that children and adolescents, besides psychological interventions, require a scaffolding support through their growing years. As I explored solutions towards this, I realised how my own meditation and mindfulness practices had helped me and that these practices can form the basis of providing that support. This inspired me to set off on a path to teach these techniques and practices to adults and teenagers. These techniques are secular, flexible and can be used in everyday life by anyone who wants to practice mindful living.
