Nandu combined his hard skills (Sales & Leadership) and soft skills (Coaching, Psychotherapy, Communication) and created Headstride Ltd with a mission to facilitate people understand their mind in more depth. These are the skills and experience that he brings into any engagement and is elaborated below.
psychotherapy & coaching consonance
Coaching augments normal healthy people in achieving their goals be it career, health, work-life balance, adventure, philanthropy and so forth. Psychotherapy on the other hand is more demanding as it deals with people with psychological disorders, residue of suppressed emotions and anxieties etc. Whilst coaching is forward oriented, and helps clients realise their full potential, psychotherapy delves deeper into the mind to understand the constraints imposed as some clients are stuck in the past with unresolved issues.
With both coaching & psychotherapy skills, Nandu has a holistic understanding of the human mind as against seeing it in its constituent parts which facilitates him in pursuing the right intervention strategies. He blends in the ‘reflection & feeling oriented’ exploration skills from psychotherapy into his coaching style and is able to invoke the necessary shifts in his client. Coaching draws considerable inspiration from psychotherapy hence there is congruence between both approaches.
AS A PSYCHOTHERAPIST
Nandu is a UKCP accredited, MBACP registered Integrative Psychotherapist. He is also a BABCP accredited High Intensity CBT therapist and BACP PCE-CfD (Counselling for Depression) accredited therapist.
