Seema has undertaken over 700 hours of individual coaching at all levels within organizations as well as entrepreneurs and leaders of start-ups. She also designs and facilitates leader circles, where the emphasis is on deep dialogue, contemplation and learning how to access intuition and wisdom from the field of consciousness.
Her passion is in supporting ambitious leaders on their journey to re-connecting to their natural genius so that they lead from wholeness, authentic expression and confidence. Seema’s clients value her ability to integrate the science with the sacred: traditional coaching methods with eastern spiritual practices for a grounded and holistic experience. Others describe her as intuitive, playful, inspiring, and energetic.
Seema is now happily settled in the Netherlands with her husband and two stepdaughters. When she is not working, you will find her reading, on nature walks, drinking ceremonial cacao or writing her soon-to-be published book on how to lead from the heart in a culture dominated by the mind.
