Q1. Tell us a bit about yourself, your family.
I’m an Astrologer, Akashic records reader and hypnotherapist in training. I previously was a sleep consultant for 3 years before transitioning into my current services. I’ve always been fascinated about healing, and the different modalities of healing and its relationship to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of our beings.
I’m natively Indian and have been brought up in Hong Kong. I went to the UK for university and have traveled, lived and worked in different countries before moving to Singapore almost 10 years ago. I’m married and have a 4 year old daughter.
Q2. What led you to becoming a ‘Wellness Coach’?
I went through and have been through depression a few times in my past and most recently was after the birth of my daughter and transitioning into a first-time mom. My anxiety skyrocketed and threw my sleep and ability to rest and recover out of the window.
I had a particular moment when I broke down in the hallway of my apartment whilst my daughter was having her afternoon nap feeling utterly helpless, useless and severely defeated to the point of contemplating suicide. I was once again back in this very low space that I had once been before when I was in high school. This time, I’d decided in the moment of lucidity, that I would get professional help, and fast.
Since then the road to recovery has been a positive one, it had its ups and downs but I made it my mission to get to the bottom of what was really wrong within me and how to clear it out, once and for all.
I discovered how underrated sleep was and it was the common denominator along with self sabotaging mindset and poor nutrition that led to my slide into depression.
As much as exercise and movement played a part, none of anything mattered if the sleep was severely compromised, which it was in my case as I was sleeping only 2 hours a night and couldn’t fall asleep without medication.
I sought out how to fix my sleep and then trained myself to then help others fix it.
Once the sleep was fixed, then it was nutrition, and now my focus recently has been about movement and emotions, mindset, spirituality and other things (as the list keeps growing).
Wellness seemed to be the best word to encompass all of these different modalities as I firmly believe that wellness is a multifaceted approach for a multifaceted result.
When someone feels “great” that means their body is full of energy, heart is ready, mind is sharp and spirit is aligned along with all the biological, chemical and electromagnetic processes in the person’s body following suit, so it’s never just one thing or one treatment or one event, there has to be that wholistic approach and strategy, and I provide a few of those approaches and refer to other experts for the other aspects.
Q3. How has it helped you personally? And why the SHIFT, from sleep & hypnosis to Astrology?
Where I am now as compared to where I was 4 years ago is almost like chalk and cheese. I do still, like anyone else, will have some occasional low or bad days once in a while which I now know is linked to my monthly cycle (another wellness modality I refer female clients to!) By having all the information at hand I know I can make better decisions. Better choices and decisions have led to a better life.
I do remember one particular moment. I’d fixed my sleep, my nutrition and was working on the mental-emotional-spiritual with meditations.
I religiously did 1 hour meditation 2-3 times a day initially. After about 6 months of doing this, towards the end of Singapore’s circuit breaker lockdown period, I opened my eyes after that day’s meditation and my chronic fatigue had lifted. I felt lighter than a feather, as if my whole body had become air and I couldn’t feel the “dense-ness” of my human body and that sparked even more changes towards feeling incredible joy and gratitude, my perspectives shifted massively. This further prompted me to embark on the esoteric healing and wellness path ever since… and have been so grateful to have the opportunity to do so and now help people via those modalities as well.
Q4. Looking back, would you change any of your decisions?
I would change nothing about it. There are moments I might lament but those are momentarily and fleeting. Just like negative interactions with people. Short, fleeting and easily forgetful.
Q5. If you have to give one piece of advice to someone who’s looking to reinvent themselves, what will that be?
Educate yourself. Read more and read all, try all modalities and find the ones that resonate with you and you will find the answers and if not, talk to me and I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction. ;)
