When I am not coaching, I love to read books on personal growth and life, try my hand at new recipes for my family and hit the gym for strength training.

My coaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that we all have the power to create what we secretly desire and become a better version of ourselves. My goal as a coach is to help my clients gain clear direction, uncover blind spots, find solutions that align with their values and purpose, leverage strengths to maximize their performance, and get closer to their ideal selves through transformational change so that they achieve their desired goals and outcomes with ease. My approach is an amalgamation of eastern spiritual and western evidence-based coaching. It emphasizes conscious leadership, systemic thinking, “being” versus “doing,” and the application of the newest findings in coaching and neuroscience to the field of organizational and individual development.

She helps you dig deeper to confront your own mindset and comes up with solutions needed to connect with people and work towards desired outcomes. With her coaching I laid out my next steps which soon turned into big leaps, both professionally and personally.”

“Ashima is extremely personable and has the ability to connect with her clients quickly and to begin work with them at whatever stage they are in that time. She is insightful and supported me to recognize my strengths and a greater sense of purpose. She helped me accomplish all that I wanted to, identified my values to handle challenges at work better and explore new perspectives. I’ve found greater balance in my life. I was extremely happy with the structure and focus of each session. Ashima is a complete package: focused, reflective, pragmatic. She can truly bring out the best in you.”

“Have had the pleasure of working with Ashima through #BetterUp that helped me with a different “perspective” in each of my coaching conversations with her. I was looking for solutions to some fundamental & existential questions like growth, contentment, art of ‘listening-in’, let-go or compulsive micro-management etc. Ashima’s style of navigation without taking on to the steering-wheel is what I admired the most. The solution may lie within, it’s that different perspective that we may be looking for. Absolute pleasure to work with her. Thanks Coach!“
