At first I really thought that it was just like any other self development session  that I attended which only tells people to think and remain positive and that's it ... but I thought of giving it a try since my negative thoughts were killing me

Honestly, I'm extremely glad that I bumped into such course as I found out that it contains many practical and useful tips and tricks that helped me so much understand myself more and develop my attitude to a level which i've never ever imagined that i could reach

Thank you so much Hira Ali

I owe you


"Hira has conducted a plethora of wonderful Leadership program for our employees. She is one of our most favorite and sought after external trainers. After attending her trainings, the participants are always excited to bring about a change in their behavior and are empowered and charged up. There is a shift notice in their behavior"


I have come away from my sessions having felt that my goal for each had been achieved.

Hira provided me clear direction on what next steps I need to take, to improve things at work and gave me guidance and signposting to pertinent literature, so that I could do some more research in order to improve myself. She has encourage me and guided me on coping mechanisms to deal with “overcoming the imposter syndrome” It also has been easy to make contact with her, and response has promptly been received. I feel Hira is very approachable and puts me at ease, when I had nigglly doubts . I would be very happy to continue to have sessions with Hira.


Hira's sessions are very enjoyable and informative. Her talks are very insightful and certainly set me thinking. I especially find it useful that she shares clear and immediately actionable recommendations to excel at work. Looking forward to her future events!

My session with Hira was a breath of fresh air, literally. She gave me the clarity, inspiration and drive that I was lacking in my life. She has helped me introduce strategies and utilize tools which will be key in reducing my anxiety and stress in daily life as a busy mum with 3 small Children. Hira is a great and highly qualified/experienced coach with just the right balance of listening skills and guidance/tricks up her sleeve to assist you with what's needed for you personally. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.


Hira shared with me very effective de-stressing messages while helping me to relax and revitalize at work
