Our Story

A growing body of evidence has shown that many of our personal and professional setbacks come from conscious and unconscious programing. We therefore often find ourselves aware of our limitations but unable to overcome them despite our best intentions.

We work closely with our clients to reveal and then un-ravel negative thoughts, emotions and behaviors that sabotage our greatest efforts for success.

Having spent decades working in the personal and professional development industry, we know the secrets to being happy, successful and well balanced in life!

At Life Services we will work with you to find creative and lasting solutions for positive change.

Bijay has practiced yoga for 9 years and is a strong advocate for mindful living. (To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing).

Bijay is deeply committed and passionate about her philanthropy work with her father’s charity in India. She continues to actively raise funds and promote the great work being done to tackle poverty through health and education in two of the poorest states in India. This year she has coordinated a ground breaking Leadership program for all students and staff focusing on building a toolkit of social and emotional life skills that would create leaders, mentors and change agents in India.

I can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your day yesterday to offer such sound advice and guidance, sprinkled with genuine care! I’m lucky to have met you 🙂  What you said really resonated with me and I will for sure follow through with your suggestions, starting with the journaling tonite! Think it’s really critical and crucial that I change the metaphors and words I use. Thanks again for everything Bijay. You are a GEM of a person.
