It Takes Two
to create the space to do masterful work, have fun and challenge ourselves to genuinely find meaningful work.
You're an experienced professional who's already amassed valuable unique life experiences and want:
your work to be stimulating and meaningful.
to finish work full of energy, feel like you've really made a difference and look forward to the next part of the day.
to earn a comfortable living that allows you the freedom to live in a lovely community; where you can go walking and cycling and come back to a home that is warm, bright, spacious and open.
to feel like you are on an adventure and your'e growing constantly
to create the long pending change and truly explore the statement - ‘’I’m so much more than this’’.
Hello, I'm Anup. Nice to meet you.
I believe we are witnessing the birth of a new revolution beyond the Industrial and the Information. Changing career multiple times is common. Doing meaningful work, having a great quality of life and getting paid well for it will become the 'new normal'.
For as long as I can remember, time and again I have made a decision in the spur of the moment and, over time, feel very lucky. Looking back at my eventful journey I tried to understand my 'luck', and realised it was because I had listened to my instincts, which took me in many different, exciting directions (it wasn’t all smooth sailing!).
The outcome? I can relate to a diverse range of people and really understand that going through change won’t ever feel comfortable, no matter how often you experience it! For all of us vision, grit and perseverance are key. Knowing this is what has led me into the world of coaching - supporting people to listen to their instincts and follow their dreams is what I've realised I love to do.

Fourth Sight Coaching
Fourth Sight Coaching’s purpose is to expand the consciousness of leaders and in turn other individuals they interact with.
In Hindu philosophy, turiya (Sanskrit: तुरीय, meaning "the fourth") or chaturiya, chaturtha, is pure consciousness. Turiya is the background that underlies and pervades the three common states of consciousness - waking state, dreaming state, and dreamless deep sleep.
When leaders raise their level of consciousness, they build environments in which people thrive, are more engaged, more intuitive and work powerfully together. These individuals fulfil their purpose and continuously adapt to their environment and, as a collective force, will grow to create a more mindful society.
Fourth Sight Coaching strives to be a warm haven that attracts, inspires and develops powerful masters of grit & transformation.
