Hi! I’m Nisha and my passion is to help others on their individual growth journey.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to spend my life helping other people to alleviate their suffering and to make positive changes in their lives. I have a degree in Psychology, which is a testament to my passion for truly understanding and helping others. For a long time I considered starting my career as a counsellor, due to my personal goal of helping others manage stress and anxiety and to help them self-actualize and realize their dreams. My psychology background has given me an in-depth understanding of people and their behaviour, and it complements my natural characteristics of empathy, warmth, and non-judgment.
My professional experience in the past as a Learning and Development Specialist means I have walked alongside people who are eager to develop their strengths and move forward in their career in a way that makes them excited. I have spent time creating personalized individual development plans for individuals in their career growth. I also have experience creating learning materials and teaching others in groups or on their own, drawing on what I have learned in my formal education on educational design and facilitation. I have a love for helping others learn and flourish, and I always do my best to understand what others need. I have a clear and compassionate communication style and I try to educate others in the way that I believe will be the most helpful to their own learning style.
Aside from my role at Careers By Design, I am self-employed as a certified yoga and meditation instructor. This is my life passion and I have had the benefit of travelling back to India to live and study in a yoga ashram in the city that yoga was born. I have also completed separate training in mindfulness meditation and its ability to reduce stress and create greater clarity. I have created full wellness programs for the corporate world and have taught in studios across Toronto, as well as privately. I believe mindfulness practices and yoga can help anyone alleviate stress and create a greater sense of calm. My personal practice has given me a great deal of patience and the ability to remain calm and present with others. I bring much of my practice into my role at Careers By Design by creating a safe and calming space where others can feel heard, understood, and supported.
I have many passions in my life and I have often gone in different directions to explore them. My career path has not been a traditional one, so I can strongly empathize with individuals moving through career transitions or those who have yet to discover their path. I have spent a great deal of my life travelling the world, which helps me to truly embrace diversity in all senses of the word. I love being able to reach others and expanding my consciousness through the connections I form with so many different people.
I am so excited to be part of the Careers by Design team and I look forward to supporting you on your journey!
