About Rekha

“ If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got. If you want something different? Then you need to do something different!”…this is a motto I live by…

I was born in the UK and grew up in Leicester. I graduated with an Engineering degree from Loughborough University in 1997. I went on to work as a chemical engineer in industry which I loved and became a fully Chartered Engineer by 2001. By then I was working as a Technical Manager in a multinational company, working my way up my career ladder, and post graduate management courses at Warwick University. I then had my son (Rohan) who it turned out had a chromosome abnormality Isodicentric 15 (IDIC 15), which manifested itself as global developmental delay, epilepsy, low muscle tone and Autism. Despite bleak prognosis by the medical profession, I worked with Rohan intensively to help him to achieve his mile stones e.g. to sit up, walk and self-help skills. I then saw a documentary about a child doing The Son-Rise® programme, I instantly knew this is the way I wanted to help my little boy. It took me another two years to pluck up the courage to call them to book a place on the course! In 2007 my husband and I attended the The Son-Rise Start- Up programme in London, it was totally life changing it helped me see things that were happening around me in a very different way. I went from feeling very hopeless and depressed to hopeful, energised and excited about the future no matter what was going on. This is where I had my first contact with the Option Process® dialogue and realised how helpful it was for every facet of my life. As a result of using this process routinely my relationship with other family members also began to change for the better, as well easily dealing with challenges I carried around from the past, life just started feeling easier, I had more focus, energy and felt empowered!

At this point I knew I wanted to know more and help other people using this tool. I spent the next two years studying to become an Option Process Mentor – Counsellor. I certified after an amazing month long programme in January 2010 at The Option Institute training and learning centre, in Massachusetts, America. I was trained by Barry Neil Kaufman and Samahria Kaufman the Founders and CEO’s of The Option Institute along with the senior teaching team. I am incredibly grateful for this experience it was one of the most enriching and challenging things I have done in my life. I came home and set my practice up soon after. I stock many of Barry Kaufaman’s books and Cd’s on my webstore they are very inspiring and really useful aid for understanding this process. Since then I have had the privilege to work with people in the same way all over the planet!

• To share the tools I have learnt. When someone struggles to understand or apply something it is opportunity for me to get more creative!

• Hearing people share that, that ‘impossible step’, is now easy and enjoyable!

• Creating a safe learning environment for individuals to open themselves up, and challenge them in a way they have never been challenged before!

“Rekha is calm, funny, entertaining, warm, dear, trustworthy and engaged. I would recommend this workshop as it is a deepening of the understanding on how we react to specific beliefs and how we actually can change our thoughts to feel better.”
Sandra B, Son-Rise Mum. Sweden
“Rekha is exceptional and her teaching examples are very interesting and relevant. I would recommend this workshop to others definitely, because I know she knows what she is doing and doing it passionately with a focus of helping us.”
Steve N, Son-Rise brother/ Assistant. Sweden
“I would definitely recommend the Indroductory workshop. It helped me clear the dark clouds by making me realise a lot of these were of my own creation and also by helping me realise things to be grateful for.”
