“Ruchi figures out what you need and helps you achieve it! From my first meeting with Ruchi I knew she was the coach I was looking for. She helped me gain my confidence back, concentrate on the important things in life and become the happy, relaxed and confident me. It is such a pleasure working with Ruchi that I highly recommend her sessions to all. Thank you Ruchi!”

Marianne Mudd, Singapore

“I was lucky enough to meet with Ruchi not long after I moved to Singapore. Whilst I was excited to have moved here, I had also been pretty upset at leaving family, friends and my career behind, and was in an odd place personally as I didn’t know what I wanted to do or be even as I had always been driven by my career before. One meeting with Ruchi was enough for me to organise my thoughts and tell myself (and Ruchi) what my objectives were for my time in Singapore… my own personal goals for my family life, my own health, my own career and my marriage. Two years on and I reflect back on how useful that was as I still look back to those objectives when I am a bit lost in myself… Thank you Ruchi!”

Neha Kumar, Hong Kong

“Soon after having my second child, having given up my career temporarily, I felt a void in my life. I didn’t know who I was besides being a mom to my kids. When I met Ruchi and understood what life coaching was, I wanted to give it a try to see if this is what I needed to help me. As I started seeing her, I felt I was seeing more hope, clarity towards attaining my long-term goals in life. She made me list out my priorities, which made me see myself in a different light and helped me work towards the balance I always wanted to achieve as a career woman and mom. I am much happier and content in life now thanks to Ruchi. She’s compassionate, emphatic and lead me to find my own path. I am so grateful and highly recommend sessions with her to anyone who may be dealing with any sort of personal issues.”

Aparna Agarwal, Singapore

“I met Ruchi as a Friend to discuss my personal struggle at work and balancing my life with kids. While my work was giving me a personal self satisfaction, somewhere there was a guilt factor that my work was at the cost of my kids time. Ruchi gave me a perspective on what I really want and how to balance out my work life. What she said to me Instead of taking it or leaving it, there can be a solution of a mid way. Many times we think life or situations are black or white but Ruchi showed me several shades of grey in between and I am really thankful to her for that.”

Akanksha Gupta, Singapore

“I took coaching sessions with Ruchi, while I was in between jobs and had moved to Singapore. Ruchi was very motivational in getting my spirits up and making me focus on what I need to do to achieve my goals. Her enthusiastic and positive attitude is contagious, and I would highly recommend her services.”

Reeti Panigrahi, Singapore

“Ruchi has been a great mentor / coach for me and guided me whenever I have felt Low and directionless. I have visited her thrice formally and she has given me great inputs to bounce back and feel good about myself. Her ideas are very practical, easy to follow and if put to use consistently makes a great positive impact to life. Simple things like emphasising on writing down the positive things we have in our life every morning kept me upbeat. Most importantly I have never hesitated to call her / reach out to her and express my sorrows / frustrations. She is always there and understands that You have an issue and doesn’t keep a very professional formal relationship yet maintains your privacy which makes it easy to approach her. thanks Ruchi for always being there.”

“I had an amazing session with Ruchi. She really makes you feel comfortable and at ease so you can open up and speak about the issues you are having. It’s seamless as if you are speaking to your best friend/sister and it helps you unravel what’s bothering and have clarity on how you can resolve the issues. I wouldn’t have tried going to life coach if it hadn’t been Ruchi. I highly recommend you try her and feel the experience for yourself.”

Payal Parikh, Mumbai, India

“Some times life pulls you into many different directions and it just leaves you pondering upon what’s going on. Thats when Ruchi came along and she actually taught me how to take action and do something about it. She not only gave me a patient listening but more importantly made me listen to my inner voice. She helped me deal with situations wherein earlier I would victimise myself but now emerge as a winner. She is an absolute live wire who can enthuse and encourage someone even when he or she is at an all time low. She truly is my ‘go to’ person and I really want to thank her for coaching me back to life.”

Jasveer Malaney, President – ICF Singapore Chapter

“On behalf of the Exco, I would like to thank you for all your support to lead and manage the Community of Practice, (COP) on Life Coaching since September 2016. Your events were well organized and designed to deepen the learning as well as were in collaboration with others, which allowed the members to learn from the sharing by you and fellow coaches. You have worked hard and have been diligent and focused in making each event better for your colleagues.  As a person you are a calm and level headed, a natural & genuine listener and with your excellent interpersonal skills you engaged the new and old members to settle in well – all great ingredients for a successful coach.  You are an eager learner, and equally committed to giving back and the dedication and heart you have put to plan out these events is a testimony to that. We have been privileged to have you as a part of ICF Singapore Team and wish you the very best in your coaching career.”

Ruth Waldron, Singapore

“When I was looking for a coach I was looking for someone who is professional, practical and empathetic. I didn’t just want to follow a 10-step plan to achieve my goals. I think it’s important to have a rapport with your coach and after our fist meeting I felt that we were a good fit. I was very happy with my decision. I felt that you didn’t push me too hard but were still very clear and sensible in your approach. I didn’t really think twice once I felt we got on well. Cost was a consideration for me, but the fact that your time was reasonably priced and there was no big sell to buy a package, or a minimum number of sessions required was a plus. I think that our work and discussions allowed me to clear my mind and plan a way forward. I had a kind of mental block and needed a guiding hand to move past it. My discussions with you helped me to see my potential and to allow myself to pursue my goals without feeling conflicted about whether they were valid. I’ve never had a life coach before but I think your personal investment in my case certainly put me at ease and gave me confidence to pursue my goals. I still have a way to go but I have the mental freedom now to move forward. Your confidence, patience and practical advice and tools were just what I needed. I felt that you were very human and warm in your approach – sometimes people who coach or train can be too pushy and use a more “tough love” approach, that doesn’t work for me. I have recommended you to my friends and family.”

Gautam Talwar, Singapore

“Thanks Ruchi. It was great working with you and I wish you all the best. I was at juncture in life where I could not think straight and needed guidance. That made me sign up to work with you. I was happy with my decision. It was not an impulsive decision but yes I did think twice before joining you on the coaching journey. Our work together solved the issue I was facing to some extent. I have never worked like this with any one else.  It was very motivating and you have a very positive approach towards everything in life. You have a good positive vibe. Love your spirit. Have found a good friend whom I can call on anytime. I will recommend you to my friends and family.”

Anahita Bhatia, Singapore

“I contacted Ruchi at a time in my life where I was trying to find my own identity. Ever since I became an adult I have always been someone’s wife or someone’s mother. I was looking to take stock of my life thus far and push it forward in a direction that made me happy. I wasn’t quite sure what a life coach did and what I was going to gain from the process but I decided to take the plunge as I knew I needed a bit of a push. Ruchi was warm and welcoming and helped me structure my goals into smaller more attainable ones. She gently guided me through building my career and completing things I had started and never finished. She helped me see that by taking the time to focus on myself and building up my business I would be able to develop a renewed sense of self-esteem and self worth.  Let’s be clear – there were moments when I thought perhaps I didn’t need a life coach – but we were able to redirect these doubts into a more focused approach towards building up my business and my career. I definitely have seen tangible results from the process – more clients, getting stuff done by the stipulated time, feeling like I am worth this time and most of all developing a steady income stream for the first time in my life. I would definitely recommend Ruchi as a life coach to my friends and family. Thanks Coach Ruch!!!”

Andrew Compton, Singapore

I couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with you. Why did I sign up to work with you? I had spent a number of months moving down a career path that I ultimately knew I wasn’t happy with, but which seemed to me my only option at the time. Initially, I wanted to talk to someone to get some perspective on my situation; to gain some validation for my decision to break from this course, and to figure out a way to move on. My wife saw you were recommended on the Expat Housewives Facebook Page, and suggested I get in touch, so I took a chance on an initial meeting.I was initially sceptical as I didn’t know what a Life Coach did! I didn’t have any context for what to expect, and was worried I’d embark on an expensive adventure that didn’t deliver real results.From our first meeting, I immediately felt a weight lift from my shoulders. I was gaining the confidence to let myself trust my own decisions and intuition, and the perspective to formulate and enact a plan to improve my situation. The tips and techniques we worked on, even as simple as writing down my aspirations, or my thoughts on certain topics, really helped to clarify my mind and focus me on taking positive steps to achieve my goals. I learned some valuable techniques to rely on when times were tough, but I also knew that I can call on you when I needed an extra boost or bit of support. Since working with you, I’ve made a positive change in my attitude to work and life, and I understand the importance of taking time to foster and improve that attitude. It’s not always something that comes easily, but I know now it’s ultimately something I’m in control of. I don’t have experience working with other people in a similar capacity, but working with you was overwhelmingly positive and supportive. You challenged me to take responsibility for my own self-improvement and made sure that I had the tools to stick to it. I initially found it a bit uncomfortable to have somebody as my personal cheerleader! However, I soon came round to the value of having you supporting and challenging me to improve. Your enthusiasm and positivity is infectious! You took time to listen carefully and understand my concerns, and I felt like we could challenge ideas and perspectives to come to the best conclusion.Working with you is my best decision of 2017. I will absolutely recommend you to my friends and family!

“I was all fogged up in my head, trying to multi task, overwhelmed by it all and unable to be achieve my goals at that phase in my life. I was happy with my decision of working with Ruchi but privacy was a concern, it wasn’t an impulsive decision. Working with Ruchi transformed my life from the first go. She gave me the push that I needed. I was like that car which needed a push before it kickstarts & she did it by making me Believe in myself. Ruchi is the first life coach I have worked with. She is extremely approachable, likeable. I feel a sense of comfort & reassurance with her. Ruchi is accessible when I need her & these factors combined made her a great choice for my requirement. I will definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

“I noticed that I was not happy with my life. I didn’t feel any sense of accomplishment, which in-turn made me sad or grumpy. I knew I had to change this in order to be a happier person. I saw your name recommended on several FB forums and thought why not give this a try. This has been the best decision so far for me. I did have to give it a little bit of thought before signing up because one of the factors involved, was the cost and having to discuss it with my better half about it. It was not impulsive decision, but in fact a well thought out one which both me and my husband were fully on-board with. Working with you has definitely set the wheels in motion for a better life and a better me. I am now aware of and armed with few cool tips to help me approach each situation with a more balanced approach. I’m sure that as I put them into practice everyday, they will become second nature to me. I haven’t worked with anyone else. I love the fact that you are such a great listener and empathized with my situation. You asked “Why” at the exact right moments to have me wondering and questioning my own ways that I had been doing for so long (almost on an autopilot mode). The power of affirmations and journaling made things so much more real and tap into my real self. I was struggling with my priorities and juggling many things as a full time working mom. I didn’t feel happy nor did I have a sense of accomplishment for a while which was frustrating.  When I met you, you made me feel extremely comfortable right from the get go and asked me just the right questions to get my thoughts in place. During our sessions, you would listen, empathize and understand my perspective and gently nudge me in the right direction. You have given me some invaluable tools and tips to help me overcome stressful situations and be a happier person. I feel so much more confident in my abilities. Thank you Ruchi! I most definitely would recommend you :)”

“I met Ruchi at her presentation at Yong An Park. She was so convincing that I decided to try her coaching as I was going through real difficult phase of my life and was so messed up and confused about my abilities and goals. After few sittings I felt so good about myself as she taught me how to start loving myself first and appreciating my multiple abilities. She really made me feel empowered and thus I started organising myself. She made me feel enthusiastic about my achievements in life and helped to manage them in a more productive way. Thank you so much Ruchi. God bless you always.”

“I was in a terrible frame of mind where I was overthinking work situations/deliverables and doubting my ability to deliver at work.  I found myself trying to avoid challenging situations, which had, until now got me on a fast growth track in my career. I was also low on confidence. This started impacting my personal life too as I was always preoccupied and anxious. My breaking point (which made me sign up with Ruchi) was when my daughter asked me, “papa, are you not happy spending time with me? You are always thinking about things”. Ruchi is a close friends wife and I had previously not met her.  I was at first hesitant to work with her for two reasons:

  1. I was worried she would discuss our conversations with her husband
  2. She may judge me as a friend / person.

I deliberated a lot in my mind but then I got the chance meet Ruchi in person. I got to know her and felt I could trust her to be objective. I still get triggered by situations but find myself being able to deal with most of these much better. I feel far more confident about my abilities and have a lot more appreciation for the things I have achieved – both monetarily as well as in my personal relationships.  I am back to working on challenging assignments at work and putting myself out there. Ruchi is expressive and does not have a poker face while speaking.  She connects with the individual first and then goes into the deeper stuff that one wants to work on. This interaction felt personal when compared to others (e.g. psychiatrists) where I came out of meetings feeling they were very impersonal and that limited my ability to open up with them. Ruchi puts across your points in a simple manner.  She reprimands me at times, but in a manner which conveys the message without hurting my feelings. I would summarise working with her as “gratifying”! I will definitely recommend her to my friends and family.”
