One morning in May 2013, I had a life-changing insight whilst meditating.  I realised that my purpose is to bring mindfulness into organisations and to introduce as many people as possible to the practices that have had such an impact on my life.

At the time of this realisation, I had a successful career in HR & Change Management working in the City of London.  However, I knew that I needed to focus on my purpose completely and therefore resigned, somewhat to my employer’s surprise, and started my own company, Govani Coaching Ltd, in February 2014.  If you would like to know more about my previous career(s), take a look at my LinkedIn profile.

Outside of work (although neither coaching nor teaching mindfulness ever feel like “work”), I am the founder of the Step-Parent Network, which is a growing community of step-parents who provide support and inspiration for each other.  In addition to my two wonderful step-children, I try to spend as much time as possible with my two beautiful nieces. I love beach holidays, I have just started to learn the flute and listening to late-1980’s pop music makes me very happy!  The two books that have most influenced me are “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff” by Richard Carlson and “Wherever You Go, There You Are” by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

“Farah used a variety of insightful approaches to help me find my own way on how to tackle a career move and the challenges that were holding me back. She coached in an empathetic and empowering way that inspired greater motivation in order to move forward.”
