Positive Psychology Coach
Monisha was once just a hard working corporate lawyer burning the midnight oil. Then she became a parent (twice) and then, a few years later, rekindled her interest in psychology. Her love for positive psychology is what led her to coaching. Now she is a lawyer, coach, positive psychology practitioner and much more!
Monisha holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a diploma in Applied Positive Psychology (2017) in addition to practising as an attorney for over two decades. She is a Mentor with the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA), a co-convenor of the SCCA’s Well-being Chapter and a trainer with The School of Positive Psychology, an amateur artist and occasionally dabbles with the ocarina.
When she is not advising clients on complex legal matters, she spends her time engaging in positive psychology research and techniques. Through coaching, she translates the research from positive psychology into practical strategies and tools for personal well-being. Monisha’s overarching purpose of coaching is to raise the well-being quotient in her clients’ lives. Improving one’s well-being involves creating changes within oneself, one’s attitude, mindset, feelings, and behaviour. She believes that clients are capable of change, but they sometimes need help to develop self-awareness about areas of their life that are going well and those that need work. With coaching, Monisha seeks to create that self-awareness and insight in her clients. Afterall, you cannot change what you cannot see!
Monisha enjoys using and working with scientific subject matter like hope, values, strengths and will-power (which clients typically enjoy working with as well). She draws upon evidence-based techniques and research and only uses empirically supported assessments. Monisha’s clients typically include both female and male professionals trying to balance careers, families and relationships. She helps a diverse client base across many different themes and issues. She is an avid mindfulness practitioner and has practised the ancient buddhist meditation technique of vipassana for over 15 years.
