About Hema Neer: 3 reasons you should not be here:
Hi, I’m Hema.
I always love the “about me” page on websites like this because they’re written in the third person…even though they’re typically written by the the owner of the site.
So after Hema followed along with all the marketing advice given to her about writing about herself in the third person, she then decided to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.
Which, in many ways, it is.
Anyway, what do you wish to know?
I’m 42 years old from the UK, (proudly) with Indian roots. I arrived intuitively to Rhodes Island, Greece, never having googled it, to escape the UK lockdown, was granted my greek residency 2 days before Brexit and now I’m living my Mediterranean dream with more to come. Talk about manifesting and living “abundantly” (she says, mocking New Age trashy talk.)
Before that I lived in Berlin for the raves with my two black cats.
And before that I worked on yachts as a yoga teacher helping rich people feel happy and healthy without meds.
I’m guessing that’s not the kind of stuff you’re looking for.
You’re probably wondering:
Is this woman worth my time and attention?
For many readers, my answer is NO.
1: I choose not to sell you quick fixes…
Healing, therapy and coaching methods seem to be getting shorter and more sensational. (Just like fast food, fast money and faster travel.)
I get it. Back in 2004, I was looking for things that would work quickly when I was struggling to fix my brainfog, fatigue, noisy mind, overthinking, overdoing, muffin top, crappy immunity and general low motivation for life. (More on that later).
I thought I just needed that one magic bullet, therapist or coach that would fix me.
Well, it wasn’t that easy.
These days as an expert in health and healing, I do have many quick use tools and techniques that I give clients when they want to feel and function better… but the truth is it takes longer than a few seconds to keep yourself feeling amazing most of the time. In fact, it takes 90 days to grow most cells in the body and mind. Nature turns over her changes in 90 days which is a season. And there are 4 seasons in a year. Humans are not exempt from these natural processes. That said many of my clients start to feel better than ever in less than a month. And then we make sure they stay that way.
One of my values is honesty, therefore, I respectfully turn away anyone looking for unrealistic quick fix from joining my premium material, a decision that costs me a lot of money every year. Rapid transformation for long-standing issues is simply not possible.
So if you’re not prepared to commit to realistic timescales, I’m not your gal.
2: If you don’t want to change some of the habits that are slowly killing you, we’re not going to have fun together.
No, I don’t sell superfoods, supplements, tests for this or that, vegan or raw food programmes or any of that jazz. But here’s why I’m telling you this.
Start going down the “health & wellness” rabbit hole, and you’ll see all kinds of ads and articles about New Age stuff (like Law of Attraction), wellness fads (like vitamin injections) and mindset stuff (like CBT, EFT, EMDR, etc etc etc). Basically all the stuff that involves a tool or a technique.
Does some of it work?
Probably. In the short term. But if you rely on that, you never get of the merry-go-round of therapy. You’ll have a list of do’s and don’t that will suck the joy out of life and you’ll be miserable.
And that is a waste of time. If you want to waste time watch some Grace & Frankie or True Detective. It’s more fun.
3. If you’re looking for “The Easy Way”, you’ve been brainwashed by people trying to sell you stuff!
Just like “get rich quick” is a lie, “get healed, healthy and happy fast” is also a lie.
Feeling and showing up as your best is a process. Yes, when your self-care habits are in place and running, it can be just like you imagined: Loving who you are and being perfectly content with who you see in the mirror and living brightly and enthusiastically.
But that takes structure, simplicity, enjoyment and staying on the wagon which… is where I come in.
So you are still here? Fantastic.
Here’s what you can expect from me.
- Actionable trainings you can use in your life and journey towards your best self right now, for free …which are usually followed by:
- Blatant invitations into my programmes.
Can you believe I just told you flat out that you’re going to receive blatant invitations into my programmes?
Well, why wouldn’t I tell you?
I mean c’mon – I’m a health and wellbeing professional. We make our money by selling useful stuff. I will try to sell you something and I won’t be subtle about it.
However – it’s always preceded by really valuable information you can use immediately.
The idea is you’ll say, “Wow, this free stuff really helped me. I think I’ll try the paid stuff.”
Pretty simple, right?
But you still might be wondering …
How Do I Know If Your Stuff Is Any Good?
Well, the smartest thing to do is to check out my free stuff.
If you like it, you’ll probably like my signature programme.
If you don’t like it, you won’t.
But I think I’m supposed to do the whole “self aggrandising biography” thing now so here goes:
I started my “Wellness” career in 2007 with a yoga teacher training.
At that time, I was climbing up the management career ladder at a fast-paced Fortune 500 London company.
On the outside I looked okay, a bit podgy but I look like I had it all together!
My anxiety, depression, disconnection and overwhelm wore a smile.
But in reality I was a shit storm of mental and physical health issues, perpetually trying to keep up with my life.
For a decade I had failed hundreds of times at transforming my difficult emotions, skin and body and with the likes of pills, anti-depressants, EFT, CBT, mindfulness, Kundalini Yoga, Reiki, life coaching, hypnosis, diet changes and many holistic and alternative modalities. Whatever I tried worked as a temporary bandaid and then I’d go back to looking for the next magic bullet.
Feeling anxious, heavy, over-stretched and in need of a reset, I left my corporate management role in 2007 and joined a yoga teacher training. In my first month I saw myself naked without all the things I classified as being part of me – wild social life, alcohol, cigarettes, outfits; I didn’t wear makeup or straighten my hair; I didn’t even listen to my IPOD which is saying something as music was a huge part of my life – I was stripped back, for the first time ever in a lifetime of accumulating, acting, addiction to something or another.. and avoiding.
The experience was quite the blessing and something that I could never have achieved that in London. I felt amazing – calm, bright, lit up, lean and fully embracing the present moment.
But back in the real world my deep seated emotions of anxiety, stress and overwhelm resurfaced. I needed to master positive change that hit the roots of my insecurities that lasted.
My journey took many twists and turns. Years of studying with experts, multiple qualifications in health & wellbeing, and most importantly applying everything I have learned in my own life helped me get to the truth, which is that when we heal with a whole-person perspective (mind body soul & environment) – you achieve wellness that is off the charts and you never look back.
