I'm Nima. I am an Applied Positive Psychologist, a Coaching Psychologist, and a published academic author. My mission is to use psychological science to help trauma survivors thrive. I specialise in  Posttraumatic Growth. My practice, Live Authentic Coaching is grounded in positive psychological science. I use the evidence-based science of psychology and the action-oriented techniques of coaching to help individuals grow holistically to live and lead a more fulfilling life.


I hold a Master's degree in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology, and I am a Ph.D. student at the University of East London specializing in Posttraumatic Growth in adults bereaved by suicide. I am also a European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) accredited coaching practitioner. 


 My expertise lies in:

  • Posttraumatic Growth Coaching

  • Behavioural Coaching

  • Cognitive Behavioural Coaching

  • Positive Psychology Coaching

  • Solutions-Focussed Coaching

  • Behavioural Coaching: Behavioural coaching is a structured, process-driven relationship between a coach and client which includes assessment, examining values and motivation, setting measurable goals, defining action plans and using validated and researched tools, techniques and strategies to help clients develop competencies and remove blocks to achieve valuable and sustainable changes in their personal and professional lives. 

  •  Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC): CBC is an integrative approach that combines the use of cognitive behavioural and problem-solving techniques and strategies within a cognitive behavioural framework to enable clients to achieve realistic goals. CBC can improve performance, increase psychological resilience, enhance well-being, prevent stress and help overcome blocks to change. 

  • Positive Psychology Coaching: Positive psychology coaching is evidence-based coaching informed by theories and research of positive psychology for the enhancement of resilience, achievement and wellbeing. As positive psychology is an applied science, I use appropriate positive psychology interventions (PPIs) with clients to cultivate positive feelings, behaviours and cognitions. 

  • Solutions-Focussed Coaching (SFC): SFC is an outcome-oriented, competence-based approach to help clients achieve their preferred outcomes by evoking and co-constructing solutions to their problems. SFC aligns perfectly with the future-focused, goal-directed spirit of coaching.

​I work with a limited number of clients a month. Get in touch to work with me.
