Nisha Rao, mother, counsellor/therapist and life coach at L.I.F.E., has over 18 years experience in people practices, behavioural training and learning & development interventions.

She quit corporate life to pursue her passion for working with children. Since 2011, with her primary focus on child development, empowerment & well-being, Nisha has been exploring, learning, coaching & counselling. She has volunteered with government institutions to teach English, to empower and skill teachers and to encourage literacy, especially of the girl-child. .

Nisha’s personal & professional growth comes from being challenged as a person & as a parent – raising a child to have self-worth & sensitivity, helping him understand himself vis-à-vis parental, peer & societal influences & pressures; and to strive for this while constantly looking inwards & working on herself to be a more loving & supportive parent.

This is what motivated her to develop the L.I.F.E. programme. To reach out to children and parents of today, who are similarly provoked to examine themselves deeper, but with inadequate support or resources.
