Work is such a big part of our life and can be a barrier to achieving life satisfaction.

She uses a blend of sharp intuition and psychological approach to help individuals tackle their challenges and reach their goals. As a supervisor, Saira gives space and insight to individuals so they can better develop themselves and their coaching skills. Her style blends an analytical mindset with warm compassion to help her clients achieve their goals.
