About Ruchi

My name is Ruchi Parekh but I’m also known as Coach Ruch!

Ruchi Parekh: Executive Coach

I usually work with professionals who are ambitious, go-getters wanting it all.

You proverbially have “everything” already but yet feel like you lack “something”. You feel that life is passing you by too quickly and want to slow down. You feel lost at times juggling the various roles you play leaving no time for yourself. You are beginning to lose confidence and wonder if you’re doing the right thing – the classic Imposter Syndrome. Or probably it feels like you’ve hit the glass ceiling at work!

You are looking to re-invent yourself as you feel you are losing control over your life. You want to feel happy and accomplished, like you’re contributing to the world and are leaving a mark. You want to wake up with a smile on your face and feel good about yourself.

Just a few years ago, I was there too.

I was battling depression while trying to work my way out of a bad marriage and an ugly divorce. I had extremely low confidence and self esteem. I won’t go into the details here – but I WAS at rock bottom.

They key word is “was”.

I went through hell, but found the light at the end of the tunnel. My winter turned to spring. I learned that no matter how hard times and situations can be, if you decide to stay undefeated, you will always win at the end, and win I did!
I learned how to stand up for myself, gained my confidence back and because I believed in my potential and myself I never gave up.

And this is why I do the work I do today. I see so many professionals struggling to juggle all the expectations the world has of them. Trying to be Employee Of the Month while also being the Perfect  in all other spheres of life.

When I work with clients, I help them feel in control again, I help them define what #HavingItAll means for them – as compared to what society has told them – and then I help them achieve it!

When you ultimately achieve what you are looking for, it is the most empowering feeling. It will make you happy, fulfilled, validated and in control of your life. It will also boost your confidence and allow you to embrace your imperfections and enjoy life with less pressure and stress.

I believe in making a difference and in awakening possibilities in professionals’ lives.
I believe in unleashing the human potential, allowing professionals to be the best version of themselves.
I am determined to help you live your life courageously and passionately.

It is this belief and commitment that keeps me motivated and was a big reason in my switching from being a Lawyer to a Life Coach. Clients value my ability to listen without judgment and are comfortable to share openly with me. My training as a lawyer and years of practice have helped me along this journey – understanding of clients and behaviour, ability to break down large issues into their smaller constituents as well as attention to detail with a time bound focus to see results achieved.

My main objective is to help professionals move forward, find fulfilment and success in all the roles they play.

Guiding them through a transition is part of this process, making them feel empowered and accomplished.

My coaching style is result-oriented, ensuring you experience a paradigm shift that allows you to achieve results in your professional and personal lives.

I will guide you on a journey of self-discovery, powerful action planning to leverage strengths and address developmental gaps. I will provide you with the impetus and inspiration to take action. I use powerful coaching tools and methods to create awareness and help you deliver results more effectively taking you to the next level.

I currently live Singapore from where I conduct coaching sessions with clients around the globe, in-person or virtually through telephone or Zoom.
