Neeta Maharaj is a transformational coach, general psychologist, writer and teacher/facilitator. Her work includes a mixture of positive psychology, coaching, cognitive behavioural therapy and intuitive work.
Once an engineer and management professional who worked for 10 years in a well-known corporate Oil & Gas entity, she dedicates her time now towards helping others make meaningful transformations. She is currently the in-house psychological counsellor for the International Centre Tilburg (ICT).
Her work is centred on helping expats, and other international clients, especially Highly Sensitive People (HSP’s) and Empaths. She is also passionate about helping people make a shift towards a career that is more fulfilling and aligned with their strengths and personality.
Owing to her academic prowess, she was invited to become a part-time lecturer in the department of applied positive psychology, at the University of East London.
Neeta is best known for her sharp intuition. Because of this, coupled with traditional approaches to psychotherapy along with elements of coaching, many of her clients have impactful insights and ensuing transformations when working with her.
She is also an advocate for mindfulness meditation and has trained its traditional approaches (together with its psychological benefits). Her training began in 2008 with a traditional Theravada monk. Since then, she has been a practitioner, one who also took lay vows as a dedication to working on herself and the world at large. Under the stewardship of the monk, she became a mindfulness teacher for young women in prison, teaching them to use mindfulness as a tool for dealing with anger and stress.
Neeta is also the co-author of the book "From Headless Chicken to Golden Goose." She is in the process of working on her 2nd book. Her work has been featured in many international publications.
