Janaki is an empathetic and compassionate guide who can help you transform your life. "Janaki is a fantastic coach. She is insightful, loving person with an open and curious attitude towards all people. She taught me specific tools and exercises to redefine goals for my career, family and personal life, and helped me make sweeping changes to achieve those goals. Janaki showed me the way to find the inner grace and joy and to lead a brighter existence."Kai M., Corporate Employee, Emeryville, CA
I am so grateful to have had a chance to work under Janaki’s guidance for the past two years. Janaki taught me lasting skills which I use every day in my dealings with family, friends and work. I have transformed my outlook on life and continually strive to be a more positive, loving and giving person. She also helped me make meaningful changes in my life by helping me distill my goals and by teaching me habits that helped me achieve my goals. Janaki’s genuinely energetic and cheerful outlook on life is contagious and I still hear her voice, giving me encouragement and insight.Katharine, Senior Corporate Buyer, Berkeley
I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to have Janaki in my life. She coached me for five months as part of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)'s Leadership Development Pathway course and in only these few sessions I feel transformed. She is an energy-focused, enthusiastic coach who helps shed light so you can see with your own eyes where you want to go next, helping you set goals and become a better person overall. I often see myself repeating some of her phrases, helping me overcome challenges in a more balanced and centered way.Carolina, Spokesperson and Chief of Public Information and Strategic Communications, Columiba

Janaki's LinkedIn description is very accurate. After an analysis of my beginning status versus my long-term goals, Janaki helped me clarify my personal and professional objectives. From the very beginning of our coaching she was able with numerous creative processes further my personal and professional development. She did not allow extraneous life distractions to deflect from my objectives. Our meetings were concentrated and intensely focused. I would highly recommend her services.Janice, Attorney, San Francisco, CA
I recently had the opportunity to be coached by Janaki. Through her deep listening and probing questions she was able to help me hone in on an area of focus that was more relevant to my life than my original plan. Over the course of our twelve sessions, Janaki used a variety of techniques and modalities to help me to move move through intellectual and emotional blocks toward my goal. Janaki provided me the tools to develop new skills and thought patterns that I have effectively applied to my life. I enthusiastically recommend Janaki as a coach.Kimberley, Social Worker, Berkeley, CA
Janaki was instrumental in helping me through a life transition and she gave me the tools that I needed to gain clarity. She is extremely professional, compassionate and fully committed to the process and her Clients.Rochelle, Interior Designer, El Cerrito, CA
Janaki has been a great coach for me. She initially checked in and asked me where I wanted the coaching to go. What I liked best about her is that she made sure that I was taking care of my mental and physical health and paired that with my professional life. Thanks to her help I now have a clearer understanding of where I want to go with my career and leadership.Ellen, Community Organizer, Chicago, IL
Janaki took the time--without judgement or agenda--to understand where I was at in life, education, career, and love to guide me to where I wanted to be. With her coaching I developed my leadership skills and an executive presence which allowed me into doors which were never open to be before. Additionally, I was challenged like never before to reflect on my present and visualize my future to get what I wanted out of life!Morgan, Dir. External Engagements, Chicago, IL
Janaki is a very spiritual individual who has a strong intuitive sense for her clients' stresses or struggles. She gives sound advice and recommendations that are highly effective. She is encouraging, approachable and accommodating. I would recommend Janaki to anyone looking to find greater work-life balance using mindfulness and to anyone needing just enough push to keep on going.Adoria, Sr. Architect, San Francisco, CA
I have been working with Janaki on one-on-one life/business coaching for over a year now. As an entrepreneur I came to a place where I've reached my goals set a decade ago. Success and reaching past goals is wonderful but I also felt too comfortable and had little clarity for what came next. I knew I wanted a change but floated without any structure for a year just wondering and hoping it would just come to me. I sought coaching and uncovered much much more with Janaki than I could have ever done reading a book or trying to figure out what's holding me back by myself. I have experienced tremendous strides in my personal development and business goals by working with her. It's a lot of work but inner work is just that. Work. She is a great teacher of the gifts of life as well which is an added bonus. I see the miracles life offers me everyday just by the awareness she demonstrates and lives by everyday in her own life. Janaki's commitment to me never wavered and she held me accountable every step of the way. If athletes need coaching, there is no doubt that one needs it off the field as well. I highly recommend Janaki if you want to uncover the hidden, unlock more of your true potential, and gain achievement where you didn't think it was possible.Troy, Graphic Designer & Photographer, Emeryville, CA
I highly recommend Ms. Janaki Bakshi as a professional and life coach, who lives up to the motto of helping one "live a designed life without fear". She indeed inspired, motivated and challenged me that those closest to me have noticed the difference which I too am living daily, and I am living a life of gratitude without fear. My coaching journey with Janaki touched both my professional and personal life. She was able to inspire me to approach my life with gratitude, love and clear understanding that I had the power to influence my circumstances. She coached me in setting out clear goals and practice areas, and provided resources that I am able to use in my everyday life to this day. I can see where I was before we started the coaching relationship and where I am today, and indeed, I have travelled far and I am happy with myself. The coaching relationship grew so much that I trusted her fully and she was able to make me see how my personal life had an impact on my professional life. I was able to deal with relationship issues on both sides, setting out support structures that have become very valuable. I am now aware of my thoughts and perceptions and have the the ability to acknowledge and appreciate the gifts that I have and most of all, love who I am. Thank you Janaki for being my champion and sharing all the tools and resources. I do hope many will benefit from your expert coaching skills and your loving and giving heart, and live a fulfilling life without fear!Emily, HR Partner, New York, NY
Janaki coached me, and I found her to be most professional, helpful, encouraging and enthusiastic about her work. I felt all the time that it mattered to her very much that I succeed in achieving my objectives. Janaki, with my agreement, held me accountable for the work I opted to do between sessions. She was very supportive and always ready to give me most helpful resources.Erkia, Professional Coach & Trainer, London, UK
I received coaching from Janaki Bakshi, and it is with great pleasure that I offer this heartfelt recommendation. What I noticed immediately, was Janaki's presence that was calm, accepting, and caring. Janaki asks insightful questions and fully listened to my responses, gently guiding me to solutions with her coaching experience and often in unexpected directions. Her intuition and skill in getting to the underlying issues made her a valuable partner in accessing the results to move forward quickly in my life. Janaki genuinely cares about the quality of her work demonstrated by her ongoing education, personal growth and her professionalism. I am grateful for Janaki's assistance and encouragement. I highly recommend her as a gifted coach.Kim, Project Manager, Vancouver BC
