Pool of talents who extend their expertise with us


I strongly recommend this course to everyone involved in people development. It was absolutely wonderful and transformational. Not only did the experience provide me with an opportunity to make a change/make a difference in the lives of my clients, but it also provided me the opportunity to grow and learn about myself as a therapist and as a person. Just in a few days I overcame some personal barriers, which I am so grateful for. The skills are quick and easy to apply to any form of communication, professionally and personally.

I was quite skeptical about the workshop in the beginning. But a need for a revamp brought me here. I am glad I chose to come. This workshop has been nothing but beneficial. I feel like the title of the workshop has been justified.

I could very easily blend in with the group and communicate, which was always burdensome for me earlier workshops. More than theoretical inputs, the work shop was experiential. Rich with activities, art, movements, dance and so on, facilitator helped bring an awareness about myself, my construction for myself and my emotions. I realized I could be myself, relieved to realize that other’s constructions about me is not as bad as my own. My consciousness felt recognized and I understood that my present emotional imbalances stem from the difficulties of the little self-experience I had in my childhood. Hence, the unmet are to be met, so that I could heal.  I realized consistent awareness with follow up programs will help me in my journey. In short, I radically believe that this workshop will continue to influence me and change me.

I had faced stress, discomfort for unknown reasons and physical problems while I was staying at camps for serving victims. I never could understand it was my body’s cry for help, I actually ignored it. But this workshop helped me to listen to my body, my emotions rather than following my thoughts. Now I realise how much internal struggles I have been going through. The skills for handling our own self is much needed for each one of us to achieve a balanced life

I am elated to have attended the TA 101 conducted by Lifelab International. Being someone who stays away from strangers especially a group of strangers, I am impressed as well as shocked that I completed the two days’ workshop without developing a headache. I wanted a trainer who is warm, non-judgmental, composed and professional, and Haseena Abdulla was exactly that. She was patient enough to listen to all of my doubts and had a very firm grip on the topics that she was dealing with and the workshop wasn’t boring even for a minute. Haseena maam is truly a great transactional analyst and I would recommend this class to anyone who is up for self introspection.

Attendee , TA 101

Questions like “why is this happening to me every time?” or “why only me?” have always haunted me. The TA 101 workshop helped me to find answers through learning ego states, life script and psychological games I could play to make these scripts alive. I learnt that self-awareness is the first step in understanding others and improving interpersonal relationships. It was an amazing experience to overcome the fear of facing a group of strangers, and having the best transactional analyst as my trainer was just the icing on the cake. I strongly recommend this wonderful session with Haseena Abdulla.

P.S. I would have given Eric Berne a tight hug if he was still alive.

Dr. Shahna Shamsuddin, Attendee for TA 101
