Gauri Row Kavi’s career spans over four decades and across a wide canvas of verticals. She began in the creative field conceptualising advertisements. This was followed by her debut in the media domain. What Gauri truly believes created the foundation for her current path, were the enriching years she spent in the corporate world as a Training/Learning and Organisation Development (L&OD) specialist. Which finally led her home, to the expanse of holistic healing, offering Life Therapy through two different, yet complementary roles – as a Therapist and a Coach.
With an insatiable zest for life, she strongly believes that each individual needs to tap, explore and capitalise on strengths and their abundant potential lying within, to live life to the fullest.
An avid learner, she has, over the years, enhanced her understanding manifold in the area of L&OD, as well as several therapies, garnering well-known international accreditations and certifications under her belt.
Thus, she brings to the table her vast experience of both those worlds, merging the learning seamlessly to create a synergy of various therapeutic modalities for mental, emotional and physical well-being.
