A few words about me

“The body of knowledge is so amazing in its content that I am convinced that anyone who avails of this can lead a very healthy and happy life, aware of their higher selves and soul purpose and balanced in thoughts and emotions.” - Surekha Kothari

Hailing from a spiritually oriented family, I naturally gravitated towards the study of the inner self, the soul and enlightenment. I was drawn towards and attended several personality development workshops and meditation programs and chose to undertake an incisive study of Shrimad Bhagvad Gita, Patanjalis Yoga Sutras and the Upanishads.

It was in 2010 that I discovered my true inner calling while I delved deeper into the mystical realm of Hypnotherapy. I felt I could help people by becoming a catalyst for cleansing, catharsis and healing through the use of Hypnotherapy as an effective tool. I, therefore, went ahead and pursued all the four levels of Hypnotherapy under the able tutorship of Dr. Blossom Furtado ( the Hypnotherapy School of India, Delhi). I also did a special course with the famous International Therapist from Holland, Hans Tendam and gained further knowledge of therapy techniques, different from those in classic hypnosis.

Social causes and organizational work being close to my heart, I have been at the helm of affairs and worked closely with many organizations.
