What a Harvard Psychiatrist Looks for in a Coach
Harvard trained psychiatrist, certified Master Executive Coach and CEO of NeuroBusiness Group, Dr. Srini Pillay shares his thoughts on why you should be working with Awakened Athlete, LLC Founder and Mindset Coach, Zachary Renner.
“Zach has had an incredibly immense impact on my life. Most recently he has been extremely effective at holding space to honor and nurture intuition- cultivating a deeper connection with mind, spirit, and body. We all have inner counsel but it takes humility and gratitude to be able to hear your intuition. Knowing when to silence the ego and go deeper into the pain, that truly raw vulnerable state of being, takes courage and compassion- love for yourself, love for creation, and love for each other as members of the human tribe.
Zach has remained mentally and spiritually present for all of our discussions/coaching sessions, proving to be not just physically capable but emotionally available for me during this state of raw being. He has taught me to be present, to be fully where I’m at before getting where I aim to be.
Throughout my time with him I’ve worked through depression, addiction, anger, guilt, fear, self sabotage, and a variety of other emotions so powerful it would have thrown me any which way. Zach has helped me to cultivate a deep sense of self love and introspection without judgment which has benefited me immensely. I’m proud of Zach for sharing his passion with me, with us, and I am excited now more than ever to recognize that I am true to who I am becoming- a spiritual being on this human journey!”
“Zach has a unique ability to help you peel off the deeper layers of yourself and guides you to find a deeper purpose. His calming presence, genuine care to help, and masterful ability to listen and converse always makes it easier to share with him any challenges, anxiety, or simple stress that I am dealing with. Zach always offers new perspectives which has allowed me to realize my full potential and excel in ways that I didn’t see initially. Zach has passion for helping people shine not only through 1:1 sessions, but outstanding in the group setting. As a guest speaker in my health education class, he had a commanding presence and easily had my students the most engaged all semester!”
“In my personal experience from Zach's work, I have received the gift of being seen and seeing myself more clearly. His deep listening, along with his intuitive nature of knowing what questions to ask to lead to "what more" has helped facilitate clarity, direction, and empowered me on my path as a small business owner and healer (and life enthusiast). I highly recommend Zach's work through Awakened Athletes to anyone curious to gain clarity with their purpose as well as curious how to optimize their wellbeing and what they offer out to the world.”
“My time working with Zach opened pathways that I never knew existed mentally, physically and spiritually. He has a way of radiating authenticity and bringing it out in those around him. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow with him and will utilize the wisdom he shared throughout my life.”
