Kajal Kumar - Mindset Coach 

Specialises in: Helping you to turn your struggles into successes, with a bespoke toolkit and rock-solid mindset.

It is my passion to encourage and empower women to achieve their personal and professional goals so they can live a happier and more fulfilled life. It is extremely rewarding for me to see that passion put to good use and making a difference to others. A little guidance and support clearly goes a long way, and – when complemented by positive, practical techniques – what we can each achieve is far beyond what we ever thought possible.

Twelve years ago I qualified as a counsellor. My training provided me with a solid therapeutic foundation but did not offer the practical guidance or positive encouragement needed to set up a professional practice. I loved helping people but knew nothing about building a business – let alone, a successful one! I was grateful for the support I received from friends and family but they simply did not have the expertise I needed. I was, however, committed to making it work. My dream was to make a real difference in people’s lives, by supporting them through their personal challenges. So I listened carefully to what had worked for others, used my initiative, worked hard, and slowly but surely found my way.

Volunteering at charities like Mind, Age UK, Home Start and Place2Be, along with my years of counselling work, showed me the many benefits of one-to-one mentoring and therapeutic support, but I wanted to take it further. I wanted to help women with both their personal and professional lives – to share with them everything I had learned on my own journey.

So I went on to train in other complementary disciplines – such as Mastermind Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis – in order to support my clients in broader and more practical ways. I have learned so much over the last decade, investing continually in my own growth and learning so I can better serve the women I work with.

During the early years of my professional development, I was not able to access this kind of support myself. I did not know what coaching was, nor how to find the help I needed. After many years of experience – and with all the challenges, insights and breakthroughs I experienced along the way – I developed a range of tools and processes that now form the foundation of the successful business I have today. When I did finally access that support, through working with a coach myself, it only convinced me further of the tremendous value of coaching in finding greater clarity and direction. Aware that my long and sometimes painful journey is not uncommon, I would like to save you this wasted time and effort by helping you to develop your own set of tools, fast-tracking you to the success you deserve.

Somewhere along the way, I also recognised the huge part played by mindset. I have seen how a positive mindset can lead us to the heights of success while a negative one can leave us feeling like a victim. As an empowerment coach, therefore, I place a strong focus on helping women to shift their mindset in the direction of their dreams.

It is my passion to encourage and empower women to achieve their personal and professional goals so they can live a happier and more fulfilled life. It is extremely rewarding for me to see that passion put to good use and making a difference to others. A little guidance and support clearly goes a long way, and – when complemented by positive, practical techniques – what we can each achieve is far beyond what we ever thought possible.
