What her clients say
Mitra Manesh has an amazing gift for helping people get clear about what’s holding them back, and how best to move forward. I recommend her highly.
I met Mitra at a mindfulness meditation class and I immediately knew she was special. Her approach is no nonsense and practical – it brings calm yet somehow propels you forward at the same time. There is no one like her.
For the past five years, Mitra Manesh mindfulness work and teachings have guided me in ways no one else has been able to. She has a unique ability to strip down a problem to its core and come up with a practical & tangible approach to handling it. No matter the issue, the subject, or the magnitude, Mitra makes any resolution feel attainable. There is also no one better at teaching the importance of self-love, and the basis of how to practice that. She truly is magic – I trust she could guide anyone on any type of problem, hurdle, or concern, in a way few others could.
Mitra has truly transformed my life. Through Mitra's teachings, I have learned invaluable lessons and tactical skills on how to live more mindfully, and lead more effectively. In the past 4 years, she has provided me with the tools to create clarity, focus and take action with a full heart. Mitra has been an incredible force in my life, and one of my greatest teachers.
I refer to Mitra as my “magician”. I marvel at her assessments of me exactly as I would if I was watching a perfectly executed card trick. Except there are no tricks here. Mitra is a skilled technician who specializes in precision when guiding her clients toward that “aha” moment of clarity. My time with Mitra has completely transformed my life. I am forever grateful to Mitra and full-heartedly recommend her magical services to anyone looking to live a life more fulfilled.
Allow Mitra to help you affirm your healthy patterns, interrupt your unhealthy ones, and cultivate a happier, more mindful life.
