They range from 25 to 64 years old, are passionate about great careers living and working abroad, and have trusted me to help them understand and achieve their goals, and find and build fulfilling relationships at work and in their personal lives.

Hearing from happy, successful students is a favourite part of my day.

“Malaika talked me through my situation using a very structured process. We often don’t realise very obvious things unless someone is talking us through them. It’s just a question of having the right skills and approach. Talking to Malaika, it’s like a lightbulb went off. I had these realisations. I was really glad about that.

“I would absolutely recommend Malaika. If you’re stuck, just got for it. She has an extremely insightful way of asking questions, and gives great, well-though-out feedback. She helps you get a sense of what you want. She helps you gain more clarity.”

“Since she has so much experience in this field, it’s easy for her to draw up a plan for you and immediately identify the key areas that need to be addressed. She also helped me understand exactly what I can do starting today. It’s amazing to be able to speak openly about this topic with someone who understands exactly what’s going on and is dead serious about helping you.”

Malaika’s approach was honest, pragmatic and straight to the point and I appreciated her candor in sharing personal stories to drive the point. It was also reassuring to understand what I could achieve or aspire to.

“There is no shame in asking for help. If I ask my friends about my profile, they say “No bro, Testimonial Sailik Mukherjeeit’s all okay.” I’m always open to know more and learn more. Not to get stuck and focus on my ego. Malaika is very open and it was great to talk to her.

“How can someone become my girlfriend if we don’t match and get to know each other? These are the steps. And what Malaika is doing is very interesting.”

– Sailik Mukherjee

“Malaika’s coaching was excellent. I now have the confidence and knowledge to approach my goals !” –  Karen Wickersham

There is always something new to learn from her.”

“First of all, a heartfelt thank you for addressing the burnout syndrome, which is a real risk in a fast-paced environment where we are so eager to help others that we forget to take care of ourselves. Most people avoid speaking about burnout, or mention it really quick as if it were a contagious disease…

“You are probably the last person I would suspect had gone through it, but the fact that you have, and that you are open about it, makes me respect you even more.

“Thank you again for the work you do! You are a true source of inspiration.”

– S. G.

“The most honest review and my personal experience with Malaika. I was looking to boost my profile. She asked genuine questions regarding the kind of relationship in which I want to engage. The way she communicated with me, I would say she gave her best on the call and helped me right now. So I would suggest everyone to register yourself for this call.
