Meet Hema

As a Corporate Trainer

With an experience of more than 13 years in Corporate Training and passionate about the profession,I,  HemalathaSwaminathan,  believe  that training should enhance the potential of an individual. Over the years I have  honed my  skills as a Behavioral  Trainer and  believe that feeling confident is the key to effective communication. Hence,  to feel confident one should speak with clarity, have the right body language and dress to the occasion. This belief along with the desire to motivate people to conceive and project the right Image about themselves has led me to take a leap from being a trainer to a Life Skills Consultant & Coach. My constant urge to understand the human mind and behavior has enabled me  to become a therapist wherein I can  contribute holistically towards people development.

As a Creative Arts Therapist

“Art heals” is my belief and my profession.  I am a certified Creative Arts therapist and have been practicing the art of healing since 2013. Being from a dance and theatre background, I have always been passionate about art and its  ability to connect to the deeper conscious, which I personally found very therapeutic.

The word “creative art therapy” is the use of creative arts for holistic healing of an individual or group.  The crux of this therapy is to use arts (visual, drama or movement) to assist individuals to explore their emotions and be aware of their feelings. It takes an individual through a journey within oneself and helps restore confidence, self-esteem and respect for self and others.  It is also a very creative and rewarding experience wherein the individual engages in art forms to express oneself better and build relationships.
