"As someone who never understood how to deal with stress within my career or personal life I cannot recommend Dr Rana in a higher regard. People often read online positive quotes or the importance of a strong mindset but what does this mean in reality? Rakish was able to listen and understand my lifestyle so that I felt comfortable in explaining where I was struggling in terms of my mental health. Through various consultations, Dr Rana motivated me to make subtle changes that have had profound effects on my happiness, objection handling and overall quality of life. The mind is like a muscle so if you want to get fit you go to the gym or even better hire a PT. Dr Rana is my mind's personal trainer and through his guidance I feel stronger and more comfortable day by day, which allows me to hit my goals and have gratitude in whatever life throws at me. Thank you Dr Rana you have changed my lfe for the better." - James, Co-Founder of RKOI & Deal Maker for the 0.1%
"I was feeling unsure of myself, nervous about the future but I had decided to take myself out of my comfort zone to leave a large steady but sleepy organisation into a small, fast paced firm with a very different culture. I had also adopted a large team that had complications. I lacked management skills and specific industry knowledge that would be requried to be successful in this new organisation.
I had tried reading books to prepare me for a difficult transition, however nothing can replicate the value of having a coach to talk to and guide you through challenging times.
I had interviewed 4 coaches and I knew two of them personally. I had not met Rakish before, and I felt we instantly built a connection and that he would be able to offer me the practical tips and guidance I needed to successfully transition. This is his great competitive advantage, he will cut through the noise to provide you with practical, implementable sound advice.
My self-confidence grew. I was able to implement simple yet effective strategies to improve my all-round performance.
I would say if you wanted clear, practical guidance with no fluff, then choose Dr Rakish Rana. He will help get you where you need to be." - James, Head of Institutional Business
"Dr Rakish honestly is a miracle worker. He changed my business, social and family life with his coaching.

Life changing." - Chris, CEO of Vayyu
"I was struggling with knowing how to set my goals and structure my time. I didn't have the habits I need to succeed in my life and business. I wasn't really tracking my progess in a systematic way. I had some mindset issues too, which were holding me back.
I have tried reading books, watching YouTube videos, follow online coures. I learned a lot. But I never had the feedback I needed to move forward with the specific challenges I was facing.
I wasn't entirely convinced if coaching would help me. I know there a lot of life coaches out there. Not really knowing about what they're talking about . Most coaches are pushing you to do things their way, instead of giving you a personal roadmap.
However, Rakish helped me think differently about the specific problems I was facing. This is what enabled me to take action. He showed me how to set clear goals. How to make consistent progress by setting up my environment. He gave me countless implementable steps I can take to move forward. It's absolutely amazing the amount of knowledge I gained over this period.
He helped me to focus, be more productive, and motivate myself through challenges. That right now, after working with him, I know what to do. I have a clear approach and the habits to succeed in my life and business." - Jorn, Copywriter

"I remember coming to my first coaching session not really knowing what I was going to talk about as it all seemed muddled and I aslo didn't feel strong in myself. My biggest issues were trying to navigate the turbulence at work and particularly feeling like I wasn't being heard at times.
I'm a keen learner so I immerse myself into books to find ways around challenges and they help to a degree. What I was missing was the personlised, human touch, someone who stands beside me and encourages me and helps me to be braver and give things a go.
You're my very first coach, so I guess I was a bit unsure about what we would get out of the sessions. I was concerned that I didn't have a fully formed focus as things were so messy at home as well as at work. Would this help, could this help with both? The answer is yes.
I felt that I could step into the space that I wanted to; I could be brave and speak my truth if people didn't listen; I could feed that back and then ultimately let it go. We talked a lot about 'reinvention' and I think the coaching has been a springboard for that. It's as subtle as it is transformative - helping me to reflect on how my thinking could reframe a situtation has been powerful and builds on from some work I had already been doing around this. What made the difference was that I knew you would be helping me with keeping accountable; if I said I would try somehting I knew it was then a commitment. You also encouraged me to take action at times when I made excuses for inaction.
We connected from our first meeting and I consider Rakish now to be a trusted friend. I confided all the things I could not or would not talk to others about and his style of coaching which I would say is very dynamic and action orientated, yielded immediate changes that are sticking. You've got to want to change and really mean it by following up with actions that may feel awkward or even downright scary. So, coaching of this level, is not for the fainthearted, but then fortune does not favour the brave. Rakish does support you thoughout and at times I would almost summon his enthusiasm and backing as I step into a challenge." - Diane, Organistaional Development, South Coast
