You may be wondering who and what a Working Warrior is. Well, it's ALL OF US.

Every day in every aspect of our lives, we are all effectively working towards something; be it a career, a relationship, our emotional health, or even adapting to the changes brought on by Covid-19. Equally, all of our efforts demand us to stay positive, be motivated, and keep on moving.

This is why coaching with compassion is at the heart of what I do. I am driven by my fierce motivation to help you build a stronger, healthier mind-set and empower you to create a profound shift in the areas of your life that are important to you.

'Somewhere between surviving and thriving the Corporate Life'

During one of the worst periods in my life, I was suffering from severe anxiety and experiencing panic attacks. I reached out to Poonam, hoping someone could help me through this dark time. She was extremely attentive to my fears, concerns, and worries. She gave me the space to express my feelings without making me feel I was being judged. I found calmness in Poonam which reflected back on to me, and this enabled me to start building my confidence again. At first there were talks and a lot of listening involved. She took the time to understand my feelings and took me seriously. She allowed me to feel all those things without responding to my sadness with cliché lines like “everything will be okay”, “time heals all”, and “its okay to not be okay”. Instead, she helped me see my situation through a different lens. This helped me enormously to begin taking the practical steps that I needed to help me manage my anxiety and how I responded to difficult situations. I found through our conversations and making plans and setting goals gave me a new zest for life—to achieve and remain positive. Four years later, and I am in a very different place now. I can manage my anxiety with ease, I have achieved goals that I thought I never could, and I can without a doubt say this because I had Poonam’s wonderful support and motivation. She’s a great guide and a reminder that there is always help available which can do wonders for your life! I highly recommend Poonam to anyone looking to find motivation, courage, and positivity in anything they may be struggling with, whether it is your love life, work life, family, or friends. Thankyou Poonam.

Dr. Madar is an energetic and enthusiastic tutor. When delivering lectures, her approach was highly engaging. Dr. Madar took the time to learn the names of all of the students within the class - something which many tutors neglected to do. This made the session feel more inclusive, and encouraged people to share more of their ideas. In particular, I can recall a session in which a fellow student shared his own experience of losing a friend to knife crime. It was highly moving, and is testament to the trusting tutor-student relationship that Dr. Madar's teaching approach evoked.
