Stories

my daughter not only eats healthy but also is well prepared to live on her own

When we hear about a health coach, the biggest fear that strikes our mind is the fear of losing the freedom of enjoying our favorite food. This, along with the prospect of including some new food in our routine which we may not like at all prevents us from approaching a health expert.

Like most people, I too had all these inhibitions until I reached out to Sheetal for my teenage daughters eating habits. Our experience with Sheetal and her educative, instead of a restrictive approach, has shown us that there is a genuinely happier way of mending one’s health. She has been an extremely good listener and has worked not only on the eating habits but also the mindset of my daughter.

After six months of seeing Sheetal, my daughter not only eats healthy but also is well prepared to live on her own, cook her own healthy meal and take care of her health whilst keeping in mind her financial budget when she is in the University far away from the comfort of her home.

I would strongly recommend Sheetal’s health coaching to all the parents whose children are moving away from home for higher education and are going to be by themselves in coming months. Sheetal will add significant value to their health and lifestyle habits and make them self-aware and self-dependent.

(A parent who was keen for her daughter to make a smooth transition to her new university life)

I was suffering from PCOS for a long, had irregular menstrual cycle and had put on a lot of weight

After just 3 months of consultation with Sheetal, I have lost 7 kilos and my menstrual cycle is now regular. As an additional benefit, I am much calmer and able to set my long term academic
and career goals.
[Spoorthy, A 23 year old Dubai based working professional]

Sheetal helped me manage my time and priorities better and produce better professional and personal outcomes

As a successful entrepreneur, I found it difficult to give appropriate priority to my own health and wellbeing. Sheetal helped me to make practical changes to my diet which produced
sustainable weight loss and helped me feel more energetic. Sheetal provided me excellent support throughout the program to help me adhere to my new lifestyle.
[Varun, A young and successful entrepreneur who wanted to lead a more balanced life]

My skin is free of acne and is glowing again

I found Sheetal’s approach to be non-judgmental which allowed me to completely open up to her to explore solutions for my wellbeing goals and overall personality development. I am now more outgoing and confident, and my social life has improved. My skin is free of acne and is
glowing again.
[ D.N.;A 17 year old student with skin conditions that affected her confidence and social life]

I developed self-confidence and was able to overcome my fears

My top 3 goals in my 6 months program with Sheetal were to have a positive mindset, healthy lifestyle and the ability to say ‘NO’ to people.
Sheetal was able to help me achieve these goals. I developed self-confidence and was able to overcome my fears. Further, I am also less stressed.
Sheetal is a great coach and I loved working with her.
[Shruti; a busy young professional]

My green juicing habit, thanks to Sheetal, is a game changer

Sheetal, my Health Coach for 6 months, came into my life at a time when I realized I needed to up my health game, both physically and emotionally.
Having met a few health coaches and counsellors in my early 20’s and 30’s, I can not emphasise how important it is to have a ‘great rapport’ with your coach. Sheetal easily understood my
psychology, my (bad) food habits and gut issues that stemmed from my anxiety and sadness. I gelled with her so comfortably and could speak to her with utmost ease. Sheetal embodies all
the qualities of a good health coach!
I highly recommend Sheetal for your health coaching needs
[A client who prefers not to disclose her name]

My stress, blood pressure and cholesterol levels are under control

My aim in the 6 month program with Sheetal was to stop smoking, manage stress and bring my blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar levels under control.
She understood my problems and family history clearly; taught me to take one step at a time and achieve my goals be making small changes. My stress, blood pressure and cholesterol levels
are under control now.
Sheetal is an extremely good listener and has a great knowledge of the subject. I would recommend Sheetal to anyone who wants to bring about a health change.
[Rakesh; an insurance professional]

Sheetal has completely changed my approach towards food

I came to Sheetal for weight loss, a healthy lifestyle and modulating my stress.
I have to say Sheetal helped me in all three areas. She gave me a sustainable food plan after reviewing my medical history that improved not only my health and energy levels but also improved my emotional state.
Sheetal is extremely knowledgeable and detailed; she is also kind and caring. 

Great experience!

My diabetes is now under control

After undergoing the coaching program with Sheetal, I am able to bring my diabetes under control, I feel more energetic and light and my newly acquired meditation practice helps me sleep better. The increased awareness of nutrition in cooking has benefited the entire family.
[ Bashir Manjari, a school teacher who wanted to focus on her health after the loss of a family member due to ill health]

In our Family Coaching program, both of us lost weight

We started our Family Coaching journey with Sheetal to lose weight and develop a workout routine. During the program, both of us lost weight and even had a clearer skin. Sheetal is amazing, easy to talk to and very understanding. Would recommend her to everyone.
