We are a team of South Asian practitioners who specialise in meditation, therapy, and spirituality. As practitioners with strong connections to Eastern traditions, we have wholeheartedly adopted and integrated these practices into our daily routines. Through our own extensive experiences, we are able to embody and transmit these traditions in an authentic and impactful manner. Our work is grounded in a deep appreciation for the diversity of cultures and the transformative potential of their unique traditions, which informs our approach with a profound sense of regard and appreciation. 

Our team comprises of Karuna Priya, a former Buddhist monk with extensive training in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the UK, and Nitima Priya, a Holistic Counsellor born in the foothills of the Himalayas, currently based in the UK and offering her counselling services internationally. Together, we lead the way in holistic healing with a Buddhist approach that encompasses the mind, body and spirit.



Karuna had been a Buddhist monk for 15 years in Sri Lanka and Thailand and holds a Masters Degree in Buddhist Studies from SOAS, University of London. He serves as an university chaplain to Imperial College London and Royal College of Arts. He is a RYT500 Yoga teacher and a certified EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner.

Karuna has developed a relaxed teaching style, which puts others at ease, and his personal experience allows him to help others understand the concepts of Mindfulness and compassion. 



Nitima is an integrative counsellor, life coach and mindfulness teacher. She studied Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, NLP & Counselling Skills at the Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies (CCTS ) and is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). She is also co-founder and head of education at Akanista Mindfulness and has facilitated many workshops at Imperial College, Royal College of arts, and leading corporate companies such as Soho House, Coats, BAT and Save the Children to name a few.

Our Approach

We see you for who you are, with your struggles, stories, and differences, and allow you to exist as you are in your healing journey, with a sense of agency to stand for yourself. We hold a safe space for you to explore your identity, deepen your spirituality, and expand your potential.

Our coaching sessions are suitable for everyone, particularly those struggling with stress and anxiety in today’s fast-paced and often dysfunctional societies. We work with clients from all backgrounds, including trauma survivors who require specialised, culture-sensitive care. Additionally, our sessions can help those looking to improve their lives, develop personal growth, nurture positive relationships with themselves, expand their horizons, find peace and contentment, and learn to be less hard on themselves. We offer tailored sessions that can last anywhere from 6 to 12 sessions, with options to extend if required to meet each individual’s needs.

One of our core values is to demystify meditation and spirituality. While these practices have become increasingly popular in mainstream culture, they are often misunderstood and stripped of their cultural and ethical elements, which can render them less effective. We have a deep respect for the origins and intentions of mindfulness and meditation practices, and we believe that they should be approached with care and personal guidance. Our goal is to help our clients understand the context of these practices and how they can use them to empower themselves and gain healing properties.
