Her husband’s unwavering support and financial stability assurance played a crucial role in this bold step.


Varsha began her journey as Student Success Coach on 15th August, a date symbolic of India’s independence and her own liberation from a well-reputed school (Somerville School, Noida). Her dedication, expertise, and genuine care for children quickly gained recognition. She now operates in the Delhi NCR region and across India, providing counseling services related to emotional intelligence to students.


Varsha’s work has not gone unnoticed. During parent-teacher meetings, she has received appreciation from parents for her role as a Mathematics teacher and a true counselor. Her approach goes beyond academics; she touches the lives of children by nurturing their emotional intelligence and life skills.
