Life Coaching


Holistic life coaching
The Saraswati Life Coaching methodology and approach considers each individual as absolutely unique and embraces a process that integrates mind, body, psyche and soul.
We work from the premise that everything is connected and related and should one part of ourselves be inflicted then the remainder of the individual is impacted. Accordingly, holistic life coaching deals with all the parts that make up who we coherently are.

Don’t let your dreams be dreams

Our coaching model incorporates the Saraswati 6 Pillars of Genius ©; – involving past conditioning and experiences that may have resulted in beliefs or subtle and stubborn blocks that limit an individual from being his/her best self, to creating understanding of the archetype in the presence of one’s life that engages themes, patterns and cycles – playing out realities that constantly show up in one’s life.
