My name is Haseeba, a coach - certified Master NLP Practitioner, Diploma in Hypnotics with Michael Beale, Personal Development Coach and Member of ICF (International Coach Federation). I have several years of professional experience of working in different sectors from education, IT and pharmaceuticals. My passion has always been working closely with people from all walks of life. I grew up in the Middle East, whereas my ancestors are from Pakistan. Since the early years of my life, I had great passion to give back to society.
Living in different parts of the world has given me a great outlook on life and understanding different cultures and backgrounds. I hold an MSc in Occupational Psychology from University of London and Bachelor’s in Human Resources from Middlesex University. I believe life has shaped me in a way that I was always destined to become a coach and strongly talk about embracing unfortunate experiences in life positively. Hence why I choose to name my coaching style as ‘Kintsugi.’
I have intensively volunteered as a coach and mentored women by being part of different non-profit organizations. To name a few, I worked with Dubai Cares to enhance education programs for children and Coaching women to start up their businesses during the Covid19 Pandemic with Pakistan Association Dubai. I have successfully coached women with broken relationships and past traumas.
What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
There comes a point in our lives where we hit our rock bottom and we are struck with an option to either stay on the ground or
climb back up. Back in 2019 when I decided to walk out of my violent marriage, I came across people who helped me get back on my feet. I realized my true calling. Scars are deep rooted for those who have been victims of domestic violence. Very often we believe that there is no way out. I suffered from depression, lack of confidence and many more mental health issues.
What books are you currently reading?
I have always focused on reading biographies of leaders around the world and books on social sciences.
This has carved my way to become a life coach. Although I have a background of HR and Msc in
Occupational Psychology my passion has always been to empower people.
What do you know today that you wish you would have known when you first got started?
However, life coaching has been a savior in this journey. My love for art introduced me to Kintsugi.
At that moment I realized that this art defines me.
What advice would you give to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally?
My advice to all women who are in toxic relationships, don’t give up and keep going.
