Hi there!

I’m Kanika

As a parent, coach and educator with over two decades of experience, I understand how overwhelming it is to be a parent especially if you have no experience and have no clue as to why your children don’t listen to you! You end up being so frustrated and out of your wits, running from pillar to post. You wish you had a magic wand and all your parenting troubles could go away in an instant.

I have learnt with years of experience and  research based science that we can be a parent who can be in control and can equip our children to be confident and resilient. Learn through my parent coaching, young people mentoring and masterclasses.

I help and support parents and young people just like you to gain confidence in your abilities. Learn the powerful strategies and techniques and apply them to see the impact it has on your life.

 

What clients say

"Approachable and a great support"

Kanika has supported me in identifying and overcoming obstacles, including motivation, self doubt and time management.

We connected very nicely from the beginning. Kanika has always been positive, friendly and professional and although I have been encouraged to speak freely, this came so naturally with Kanika as she is very approachable and we have great rapport.

 

" Professional, planned & measured "

Kanika has helped me consider my options thoroughly for each goal so I can commit effectively to what I say I am going to do. During the coaching sessions when we review the success of the last goal, I can introspect confidently with Kanika the reasons why some things have not gone to plan and have a good conversation about it.

Thank you Kanika for the coaching experience I really enjoyed doing with you.

"Empathetic and professional"

The coaching I received from Kanika was very professional, planned & measured and I really felt I was being understood. Kanika gave me confidence that she was skilled at coaching by her measured & probing approach.

Throughout the sessions , Kanika was so humble , actively listening to my comments, empathetic and above all cheerfulfocused and professional.

"Inspiring coach"

One of my best sessions with Kanika was when she made me realise that I have all the control in taking action to better myself and it felt like, this ignited a flame inside me, knowing that I decide what I do with my time and this has just given me growth in time. I would definitely recommend Kanika to anyone who is looking for development in their life as she really is an inspiring coach.

"Solution focused"

Through her coaching , Kanika assisted me in creating practical steps to achieve my goal.  It was so useful especially with the areas which are outside my comfort zone such as Marketing for my business. Additionally, Kanika helped me to come out from very difficult time. Through her coaching techniques she helped me to craft the exact points that I need to undertake to get out from this sad occasion.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Coaching?

Coaching is an interactive process where the coach guides and facilitates the client’s progress towards their defined goals. The client must be willing and desire to make changes in their lives.

  • Coaching is about action, achievement and solving problems.
  • Coaching is a positive and pro-active process.
  • Coaching gets great results, and that’s what clients want in the shortest time possible.
  • Coaching is NOT therapy, counselling, mentoring or advising
Why would people want coaching?

There are number of reasons to name a few

  • Stress/Anxiety/Overwhelm
  • Relationships
  • Burnout
  • Work/family life balance
  • Confidence
  • Parenting Issues
  • Career or business
  • Health
  • Personal development
  • Knowing who you are
How does Coaching differ from other similar interventions?

Other interventions such as therapy, counselling, mentoring and consultancy all these have a slightly different perspective on how and what each seeks to achieve.

A Therapist might work with those who are seen as damaged or dysfunctional in some way as a result of previous trauma/experience which makes their day to day lives very difficult for them

A counsellor might work with those who are experiencing significant levels of distress which is impacting every day life.

A mentor might work with those seeking direction from someone with experience and knowledge in the same area.

A consultant might work with an individual or group of individuals looking to diagnose the problems they are facing and recommend the solutions to their current challenges.

A coach works with clients around their desire to move forward in their lives and achieve their ambitions

How do you know if coaching will help you?

Many of us go through many challenges and struggles in our life and wish we had someone we could talk with.  I was thrown at a deep end and was at the lowest point in my life when my journey with coaching began. I invested in my growth and regained confidence with the help of likeminded people who became my coach and mentor. It helped me beyond my expectations and today I am so grateful that I was the lucky one who got to where I am today.

There are coaches who specialise in different areas depending on what they are passionate about and what they have trained as and based on individual coaches own life experiences they can help you better to solve a problem they have solved for themselves. I know, you will wonder how can one size fits all and therefore as a coach I have the qualifications and have tools and techniques to solve your problems if you also want to solve them. It always work if both coach and client are equally invested to work together.

As Bill Gates said Everyone needs a coach. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a basketball player, a tennis player, a gymnast or a bridge player. We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.”
