Work and Play

Why not play?

Work or play? Work, of course! Play is frivolous and a distraction – that’s not what we get paid for, surely? But is the answer really so binary? In fact,…

Client Testimonials

  • Heeral has really helped drive our diversity agenda at Tandem, helping pick out the elephants in the room and getting some healthy discussion going at a company-wide forum. Heeral's relaxed and genuine style resonated well with colleagues across the business and I received some excellent feedback on the workshop she held with us which was due to the preparation and passion she put into it.

    Melanie Punch, Head of Careers at Investec, formerly at Tandem, London
  • Heeral’s approach to training is thought-provoking, hands on, and creative. I liked the fact that Heeral could relate to my issues, based on her own experiences, and she was very motivational and easy to talk to. Heeral doesn't use fancy acronyms or buzz words, (unlike some other training facilitators), she just ‘tells it as it is’ and her upbeat personality is infectious. I look forward to working with her in the future.

    Louise Clements, HR Manager at Argenta, London
  • As a coach, Heeral has the ability to very quickly grasp the objectives you're working towards and is therefore able to tailor very personal advice and guidance to give you the very best chance of achieving those outcomes.

    Unlike other coaches I've worked with, who can sometimes be overly direct or dictatorial, Heeral is wonderfully collaborative in her approach and wins both trust and respect quickly.

    She transformed the way I present myself not only in a B2B context, but also on a personal level and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her.

    Mark Norman, Copywriter, London
  • I attended a Women in Leadership seminar with Heeral and it was very insightful and helped me feel more passionate about going after what I want. There was a moment in the seminar that was very powerful to me and it was about whether or not we were working as a partner in our firm or just an employee. It was thought provoking and I look forward to other training sessions Heeral offers.

    Marcia Malpas, L&D, Ernst and Young Bermuda
  • Whether you are at the top of the corporate ladder or just beginning your climb, you will greatly benefit from the resources, knowledge, and insight provided in Heeral's Women in Leadership Seminar.

    Lisa Spencer-Arscott, Head of HR, Conyers Dill & Pearman, Bermuda
  • Heeral has a very interesting and professional way of presenting her coaching and seminars.
    Her background in the professional world as an actuary certainly adds to her skills as a coach and makes her even more credible and empathetic.
    We are glad we chose Heeral as our coach; certainly thought provoking.

    Michael Swain, former Head of Codan Management Ltd, Bermuda
  • I've had a life-coaching session with Heeral and we discussed the body image struggles I'm having since competing. Usually, talking about yourself for an hour would feel self-indulgent but when someone has set aside their time and allows you to express how you feel in a constructive way, it can really help you to see things in a more useful way. Highly recommended!

    Grace Stilgoe, Actuary and UKBFF 2015 Finalist, London
  • I'll admit that I was unsure of what to expect but I was amazed at how quickly I felt at ease with you, and how easy you made it for me to open up about a whole range of subjects. I felt like I was talking about a range of unconnected subjects, but you somehow pulled it all together in a way that I wouldn't have been able to do alone. I will definitely be able to use the strategies that you gave me to work on the areas that I want to develop.

    Jaine Stanway, IT Manager, England
  • This was my first experience of life coaching, and Heeral put me at my ease immediately. She is funny, friendly, and incredibly insightful - picking through all my waffle to find the key points that really set me thinking. Throughout the session, Heeral was incredibly encouraging and supportive, and if you're looking for someone cheering in your corner, I'd definitely recommend Heeral.

    Karen Jones, England
  • Your workshops and reading your website has been very inspiring. It's always great to inject a positive mindset in the workplace, and you have certainly helped to make this happen.

    I'm really excited about my next journey, wherever it may take me! I will now have more time to concentrate and nurture my new food business.

    Gina Lely, Hanoi Cà Phê, London
  • When I started sessions with Heeral, I was feeling a bit stuck and there was a sense of idleness and lethargy in my creative life. I needed a jump start and she was able to help me do that with excitement and grace. After just a few sessions, I started to feel reinvigorated.

    Now I am in the opposite situation: an abundance of energy and creativity. Her working style embraces a good balance of confidence and empathy and I have benefited a great deal from the work we have done so far.

    Mickey Daguiso, Artist and Musician, Washington DC
  • I can sincerely recommend Heeral. During our coaching sessions together she has brought both clarity and awareness around the issues regarding my business. Ideas and concepts that I have implemented to great effect.

    It has been an absolute pleasure to have been coached by her.

    Carrie Brooks, Coach, London
  • I engaged Heeral to provide 2 corporate training workshops.

    Heeral tailored both sessions to the audience (one was for more junior employees and the other for a skills refresher for senior level brokers) and actively reached out prior to the engagements to ensure the materials would be exactly what we were looking for.

    Heeral is knowledgeable and relatable to her audience, and delivers her message with passion. I definitely recommend her for corporate training seminars!

    Amy Wolfinger, Casualty & Healthcare Insurance Broker, AON Bermuda
  • I’d like to thank Convergent Consulting for the high quality training and personal development sessions. The service both before, during and after the sessions was first class. Our staff thoroughly enjoyed it and benefited from the guidance and support you have given.

    We will definitely continue these courses as we feel the staff have learned non-technical skills that they wouldn’t have learned ordinarily. Thanks again and I hope this will be a long collaboration.

    Peter Petrou, Director at Nicholas Peters & Co., London
  • As an organisation, we came to a point where we had to review our strategy and it was agreed that we would need someone to come in and facilitate a strategy planning day with the Leadership Team. We approached Heeral and right from the on start we found her to be professional, patient and most importantly she had a real willingness to get to know us as individuals as well as the organisation.

    She prepared a bespoke workshop for us which enabled us to really challenge our thought processes and equally review how we have been doing things in the past. We found her to be very engaging and supportive throughout the process and we all got a lot out of the day and afterwards! I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to any organisation that is looking at future plans as well as organisations that are exploring change.

    Simmi Woodwal, Chief Executive at The Honeypot Children’s Charity, London
  • I can be assertive and persuasive and I liked that Heeral listened very closely and would gently challenge some of the things I said. She was tough on me in a very supportive way. I felt able to share things that I felt unhappy or ashamed about without any fear of judgement and I wasn’t allowed to get away with thinking I should be able to fix everything all in one go.

    I feel that the sessions gave me a chance to reflect on things in a way that I hadn’t been able to previously and I have made progress. I would definitely recommend life coaching sessions with Heeral."

    Music Agent, London
  • After every session, I left with new clarity, of a task or action to do. Made me feel more positive about the situation I wanted help with. And you have helped me move from where I was, to much nearer to where I want to be in my longer term goal!

    Working with Heeral has helped me put things into perspective, and helped me work out how I can move forward with certain situations that were holding me back or were making me feel down. I would definitely recommend working with Heeral if you want to have more control over your life and build a better future for yourself!

    Kay Cammack, Health Coach, UK
  • When I had first started the coaching sessions with Heeral, I kept on putting ‘I should’ in almost all my sentences. That was one of the first things you had pointed out in our first session together. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, as this was my first experience working with a life coach, but after the first session, I wanted to set goals for myself. We did an exercise about what is important to me in my life, when we started narrowing the long list down, it made me really focus on where my priorities were at.

    I found that one foot in front of the other, step by step you can make it to where you want to be. It’s never too late to begin again. So thank you Heeral.
