“I am absolutely blessed to have Arvind Devalia in my life — a loving generous and always-positive spirit who is in constant practice of what he teaches. Arvind is extremely gifted at helping you implement little changes in your life–combined with the highly vital ‘opening’ of your own mind and heart to what these changes need to be–to truly create your best possible life and self in the here and now. I know of many people Arvind has coached (including, less ‘officially’, myself) –and, across the board and in every case: He has helped everyone he’s met come closer to realizing their dreams. A wonderful soul who can aid anyone, any age, gender, place–arrive at this space. He enriches our world, and the lives of all who come into contact with him” – Tanuja Desai-Hidier, Author/Singer-Songwriter (books: Born Confused, Bombay Blues. albums: Bombay Spleen, When We Were Twins)
“Being a busy achievement-orientated professional tends to leave you in charge on all levels and in control on none. You end up with no personal life, internal dissatisfaction and extreme feelings of loneliness. Arvind gives you something no-one else in your life does (including you) – focused, concentrated attention on YOU. Just you, your desires, your feelings, your goals.
He then goes one better and gives you that regularly, and for a set period of time.
You have just enough time to turn your life around if you want to, or start a flower garden. Whatever feeds your soul. Whatever you choose to do, 12 weeks is enough to ensure it becomes a habit with you.
That’s the ultimate beauty of what he does, it leaves you self-reliant and independent and in the bargain, you’ve gained a wonderful, kind and gentle friend.
Try it and enjoy.”
Geeta Sidhu-Robb, Corporate Lawyer and multi-award winning entrepreneur and founder of Nosh Detox

I fully endorse Arvind and his coaching practice.” Michael Vincent, Master Magician and International Speaker

He encourages you to focus on what you want to achieve and when you do, the feeling is fantastic! He motivates you in such a way that makes it easier for you to reach your potential. You feel a real sense of companionship in his presence.
I recommend Arvind highly!”
Georges Sokol, Concert Pianist, Magician, Web Expert – UK & France George Sokol
“I have hired Arvind twice now over the last 5 years. He’s a great asset in bringing back the control and direction I need in my life, allowing me to broaden my mind and face up to facts be it positive or negative.
In the cases where things are going well, he found ways to further improve them and in areas where things were lacking or negative, Arvind helped me find a way to find a way to embrace or change them for the better.
Today, I no longer allow things to fester in my life, I try to tackle them head on and this has raised my confidence and self esteem tenfold. Today when issues arise in my life, I look to find rational ways to handle them rather than burying my head in the sand. It makes it easy to move forward now.
Arvind is a great coach and I will continue to recommend him to anyone who I think may need it.
Thanks Arvind for entering my world and allowing me to burden you with mine.”
Sheetal Thaker, Digital Media Consultant and Entrepreneur London – Junichi Media
“Arvind’s coaching has served as a lifeline to me during a time when I felt totally overwhelmed and disillusioned with almost every aspect of my life.
Initially I was afraid I couldn’t afford the sessions but having known Arvind for some years I trusted him, took the plunge and now realize I couldn’t afford NOT to have had the coaching.
It is an investment I’ll never regret and always benefit from, I feel richer for it (and my finances are healthier).
The main benefits are restoration of self confidence and the high value Arvind places on fun and celebration, which we can so often push to the side as we are ‘too busy’. Re- evaluating my priorities and real desires no longer was a luxury I couldn’t afford. Life is so much better now and we have not finished the 12 weeks yet!
My ‘problems’ now seem like minor and manageable ‘jobs’ which of course I need to keep on top of but I am also ready to move forward and really take life by the horns!
It’s all very exciting, thanks to Arvind’s coaching, the catalyst and the sustaining energy.”
Margo, Businesswoman and Physiotherapist, London
“I decided to take on the services of a life coach because I felt it was time for me to be Superwoman – super fit, super organised, super successful and super happy. I was feeling dissatisfied with my life and did not know what the next step was, and I was stagnating.
Through our sessions, Arvind helped me to clarify my goals and identify strategies for how to achieve them, I learned to focus on what I want, and to get there by taking action. I have a lot more action in my life now. The biggest achievement for me was to learn how to relax and not put myself under so much pressure. I now know that it was never ME who wanted to be superwoman – it was a goal I felt I ought to achieve. I now focus on the goals that I really want for myself.
Life is a journey and with Arvind’s help, I am enjoying the journey and am no longer so focused on the destination.
After working with Arvind as a coach 10 years ago, the ripples are still being felt. Whenever I feel stuck, I apply the techniques that Arvind taught me and life quickly rights itself. I am living a wonderful, successful, happy life and my perspective allows me to actively enjoy it and to be present. I am so glad I gave myself the gift of being coached by Arvind.
Josie Hill, Country Manager – South Africa
“Arvind Devalia is such a motivational, wise and passionate gentleman. If you need inspiration, motivation, guidance or even advise, Arvind is the GURU FOR YOU. Arvind is also the author of MAKE IT HAPPEN which is a wonderful read and people from all walks of life can begin to change their life from his teachings.
Lashai Ben Salmi (13), co-author of Kidz That Dream Big
“Arvind is an excellent coach and his sessions have been very helpful. The benefits include giving me space and support to look at the bigger picture in life, gain perspective on what really matters and consider if my actions reflected that. Arvind is encouraging, challenging and sincere in his approach. I felt more positive and motivated due to the work we did and I really recommend him!” Georgina, London
“Since working with Arvind, here is what’s transpired for me in that time:
– I’ve lost ten pounds
– I haven’t touched a cigarette in 9 weeks
– I’m almost finished completing my first, self-produced album
– I’ve set up a budget for my family and have clarity on where the money is coming from, where it’s going to and where I want to go with it
– I’m gentler with myself
– But most important of all – I’ve figured out strategies for accomplishing my life dreams. Strategies that WORK FOR ME, not some self-help book “this is the way to do it” plan that, while good on paper, contradicts the way I operate naturally.
I would certainly recommend Arvind as a life coach to anyone who’d ask me. Our first conversation was a breakthrough for me, a left me feeling emotionally open and charged.
Somehow talking about my hopes and dreams with an objective outsider, who lives across the ocean, made me see things a lot more clearly. I used that first conversation as a catalyst for my transformation. And I’m not using that word lightly.
Everyone, from my closest friends to the guy who sells the sandwiches downstairs has commented on how “different” I am.”
Rekha Kaula, Professional Musician, Singer, Washington D.C, USA
“Arvind is an inspirational coach, his calm and patient approach made me feel comfortable throughout our 12 sessions and helped me make quantum leaps in my ability to manage time, improve my self confidence and build better family relationships with my family.
He has a wealth of experience, skills and techniques to help his client improve their lives, and I have greatly benefited from my association with him.”
Olu Bamidele, Senior Financial Consultant, Nationwide Building Society, London
“Arvind, you gave me direction when I was lost and completely at sea, you taught me how to refocus myself and that valuable lesson will go on long after our sessions have ended.
Thank you, I know it is your job and it is what I paid you for, but I can heartily say that you have been worth every penny and more. You haven’t changed me, but you have made me deal with everything differently, organised me, focused me and made me think about things that I would otherwise have buried and you helped me through some traumas with my children where no one else was objective enough nor close enough to do the job.
Thank you for helping me regain control of my life.”
Karen Malin, Director

“Arvind is one of the most loving people I have ever met.
During my coaching with him I felt I was at all times supported even when I did not believe in myself anymore. He always presented a solution when appropriate and had soo much patience and interest to get to the core of what my issues where in a very quick time. I think he is a very experienced, loving, enthusiastic and sharing coach. He certainly turned things around for me and my life. I especially loved his tips on literature and his emails which make the coaching even more present.
I would recommend Arvind’s coaching to everyone in my life. It was a truly great experience which I would take up again at any time.”
Leoni Welss, Consultant, Thomson, London
‘After one session with Arvind I felt a great weight had lifted off my shoulders. Arvind’s insight into the areas of my life that needed working on was quite remarkable and his summing up of the facts and setting goals was impressive. He has a caring and understanding manner and the ability to motivate without pressure. I would certainly recommend him as a life coach.’
Jeannie Brooke Barnett, West Sussex, England
“From sceptic to optimist! In only twelve weeks, my entire outlook has been transformed. Not only did I achieve all three of my goals, I see beauty and possibility in all that surrounds me. Arvind’s insight and sensitivity were integral to my journey and discoveries.”
Coaching comes so incredibly naturally to Arvind.
Arvind brings to coaching a lifetime of experiences dedicated to bringing out the best in people.
And getting the most out of life. He truly lives and practices what he preaches.
I could not recommend a finer human being to coach someone in attaining their personal goals.”
Senior Teacher, London, UK
“Let me just say that coaching with Arvind was one of the most effective and positive things that I have done for myself. I am generally self motivated and a go-getter, my sessions with Arvind have gotten me going in the right direction.
Quick to locate the source of my life’s true desires and goals, the sessions have enabled me to move swiftly towards them. Coaching has taught me how to locate and remove my own obstacles and take immediate and effective action to attain my stated goals in a steady yet swift pace. It ultimately requires commitment and honesty on a personal level. The work is done by YOU. Not doing it fully or honestly only hinders your own advancement.
Having a coach to answer to on a weekly basis proved to be the missing factor in all of my other self motivational endeavours. Arvind is the objective yet constant and sensitive force needed to push you past the turning points, resting places or extended pauses one often takes on the journeys to reach one’s dreams.
As a coach, Arvind seeks not to wallow in the woe of personal tragedies, but to help you identify personal patterns of self sabotage that you may recognize them and push past them. His method seeks to encourage and push you toward realization and celebration of personal accomplishments by means and with tools personally suited to your own situation.
I fully recommend this experience to ANYONE who is serious about transforming their current life position into something extraordinary and personally designed. I kid you not, once fully engaged, it is hard work…and sometimes exhausting…change always is, but aaah, when you reach the other side and see what you have done!!! There’s nothing like it in the world.
Since the sessions last for 12 weeks, I find the change to be deep and lasting and find myself continuing in the habits and practices learnt whilst in coaching, to identify and realize my own goals.
Take the plunge and treat yourself to some magnificent rewards!
Erica Horton, Artist, Fashion Designer. Texas, USA & Belgium

You are the most brilliant, understanding person I have ever encountered. Your life-coaching changed the very aspect of my life for the better. I am eternally grateful and have recommended you to all my friends.”
Jacqueline Suckling, Kinesiologist and Journey Therapist, Sussex, UK
“The day I had my first coaching session with Arvind was a very busy day at work and I was tempted to cancel.
However I was glad that I made the time as Arvind examined the key areas of my life and made me realise which areas I had been neglecting due to the time constraints of my work.
I would definitely recommend his coaching to lawyers or other professionals who feel as if their working life is taking over their life.”
Fleur Downard, Lawyer, City firm, UK / Australia
