About Me

Mallika Bhatia

A Life-coach with a Master's degree in Clinical psychology and a Diploma in counselling skills, a girl on the quest of self-discovery, a poet, a writer, a mother, a wife, a gardener, a passionate cook and a travel freak. These are some of the roles I play, some of the things I am trained in but there is so much more to me than these roles. I am beyond the roles I play, I am much more. Everyday I try and understand myself a little more, accept more aspects of who I am and love myself more than I did yesterday.

My passion is to work with people on a journey of self-discovery and to help those who find themselves facing issues in following their life paths. I knew this is what I wanted to do even as a teenager. I remember observing people at parties, noticing every reaction and behaviour of everyone around me, focusing on personality types and studying them in my own way. I guess studying Psychology was the next natural step. I finished my Masters and did a specialised course in counselling skills, while working part-time in a destitute home for women and children in New Delhi, India. I was under clinical training for almost 6 years with some of the very prestigious hospitals of my country. I was at Institutes and hospitals that people dreamt of working in and yet I felt something was amiss. I knew internally that my pursuit to learn wasn't yet over and hence started my new learning phase; training in holistic and alternative healing methods. I learnt Hypnotherapy, Pranic healing, Reiki, Tarot card reading, Metaphor therapy and Theta healing besides others. By the time I finished my trainings I had found my answers, and my own special approach to healing and therapy. I took bits from the disciplines I learnt and formed my own unique eclectic modality, which I am very proud of. I strongly believe that everyone has all the answers within oneself, all I need to do is get one in touch with one's inner-self.

In my journey, I discovered another aspect of myself that I love- writing. I began a parallel yet interconnected career in writing a few years after I had started my independent practice. I started with writing for a few national dailies and then moved on to newsletters and blogs. I write about feelings, emotions, relationships, self-love, parenthood, experiences and everything that matters in my personal blog. I also run a programme called The Hope Tribe, which is a platform for inspirational stories of people who overcame obstacles. The struggles they went through, what kept them going and how they eventually won, because I very strongly believe that there is no better teacher than a tale. I currently publish one story a month. If you think you have a story to share, please don't think twice before contacting me.
