Advita's coaching style is a blend of empowerment and compassion
Working with Advita has been an absolutely fantastic experience. Right from the start, I knew I had made the perfect choice in selecting her as my coach. Being a fellow South Asian woman, Advita understands the cultural aspects that have influenced my life and held me back from realising my full potential. Her empathy made a big difference as she could genuinely relate to my lived experiences.
Advita’s coaching style is a blend of empowerment and compassion. During our sessions, I always felt like I had the most supportive ally by my side. At times, she pushed me beyond my comfort zone while also helping me embrace my own abilities with confidence. One of the most valuable lessons I learned was to disregard others’ opinions and focus on my own growth.
She’s helped me figure out what I really want in life and my career, and with her support, I’ve achieved some personal and professional wins that I thought were impossible.
Advita has been a game-changer in helping me to let go of those limiting beliefs that were holding me back.
I highly recommend her – she’s not just kind and warm-hearted, but she genuinely wants to see you become the best version of yourself!

Advita helped me find clarity when I was stuck
Together, we worked on developing my self-confidence and focussing on the things I wanted to achieve that would ignite that confidence… and on how to get there! Every single time my imposter syndrome was kicking in, she encouraged me to be proud of all that I have accomplished and pushed me forward. I will be forever grateful for this journey.

When you’re faced with a big challenge – especially one which is much bigger in your mind – you need someone who really gets what you’re going through to give you some sage advice.
Advita helped build my confidence so that I felt ready to take on the challenge, and not only that, provided me with practical techniques so that I can continue to grow in this area.

She was very generous with both her time on the call and her advice. She combines extensive knowledge of the communications industry with empathic listening and great enthusiasm to connect with and support others.

Advita's support has been key in me securing a new senior role
Advita has coached me for just over a year and her advice and support has been key in me securing a new senior role during that time, and in developing my profile and network within the internal comms profession. She is extremely knowledgeable about all things comms and DEl and the expertise she has shared with me have been invaluable. She has been very supportive and has pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone. I would highly recommend her.

It’s been fantastic working with and getting to know Advita through our coaching sessions over the past 12 months. Advita is an expert in all things internal comms and employee engagement, which makes her a strong, insightful and knowledgeable leader. Yet alongside this she’s enormously down to earth and approachable, which isn’t a balance that all people would be able to achieve! Advita is authentic and supportive and always has time to give to others to help them see their potential.

Nosheen Haque – Communications Manager
I will be forever grateful for what Advita has done for me
I started working with Advita when I got a promotion at work that I wasn’t convinced I was capable of doing. Imposter Syndrome was raging, and I was scared of the idea of being seen as a leader. In my first session, I made it clear to Advita that I was not talking to her about ‘progression’ or ‘next steps’ at all. I was there to get more confident in my role. Three months in, I was confident and happy. I wondered why I’d held myself back for so long – why I’d let anxiety prevent me from living to my potential.
Five months in, and I found myself applying for (and securing!) a new job with more responsibility and better pay – at a level, I would never have thought myself capable or worthy of previously. Advita is, quite simply, an amazing human being. She knows exactly how to help others see their own potential and their own worth. She recommended the very best books for my particular set of confidence issues. And she asked me all the right questions to help me better understand myself and my abilities.
I will be forever grateful for what Advita has done for me. She is an inspiring coach because she is an authentic coach. Her experience, her approach, and her commitment to supporting her coachees make her brilliant at what she does.
Thank you Advita. I am incredibly lucky to know you.

It was such a positive experience
I have absolutely loved working with Advita. I started not quite knowing what direction I wanted to take, and I finished with a firm idea of where I want to be and how I’m going to get there, along with a whole lot more confidence. It was such a positive experience – Advita knows when to encourage you to throw off those self-limiting beliefs and start thinking bigger. If you’re thinking of working with a coach, I’d definitely recommend talking to Advita. She’s fabulous!
Fiona Hatton – Founder, YOCO Studio
Coaching with Advita is extremely positive
I have found the experience of coaching with Advita to be extremely positive, not only in helping me to identify key personal objectives but also offering practical tools, techniques and suggestions to achieve them. She helped me quickly realise what I wanted to achieve in both my professional and personal life and was always available to give me guidance and advice. Advita has a natural ability to make you recognise your own potential and help guide you towards it. Therefore due to the help and advice I have received during my coaching sessions, I have grown more aware of what is important to me and have gained confidence in myself and therefore my professional role.
