THE WELLNESS TEAM

At Vows for Eternity, we have always believed in a holistic approach to relationships - finding your life partner is not about connecting two people who are incomplete, but who want to come together because life is even more beautiful when shared. Our mission to help you find that final link is what has led us to now think broader - what are other areas of life within which people may be looking for some greater enrichment? This is why we have now introduced the Vows for Eternity Wellness Panel.

Our Wellness Panel features a range of experts at the top of their fields, who are available to provide one-on-one, personalized services, guidance, and inspiration to our members. This has been structured very similarly to our own membership services - the experts are here to tailor-make solutions for you, based on what you think you may need to focus on the most - be it nutrition, fitness, therapeutic solutions, emotional wellbeing, coaching, and so much more.

Please click through the profiles below where you can get more details about each panel member along with the option to book sessions with them.

Anuradha Gupta Founder & CEO, Vows for Eternity

Anuradha Gupta is Founder CEO of Vows for Eternity, a global matchmaking service that she started 10 years ago. After graduating with majors in Psychology and Economics, she did her MBA from Melbourne Business School. Her career has led her across the world in a variety of leadership roles including being a key person in the strategy team at Arsenal Football Club.

Over the last 20 years, Anuradha has lived in Melbourne, London, Los Angeles, New York and New Delhi, giving her a global perspective. Her work follows her personality – an innate ability to connect with people and infuse her positive approach to living life. Anuradha’s diverse background uniquely equips her in understanding different personalities – a skill that is critical in finding the right partner.

Having spent a decade bringing people together, Anuradha has the ability to read into what makes people tick. Her conversations with members not only gives her an insight into the best suited characteristics for a perfect partner but many times leads individuals towards understanding themselves better. Understanding upbringing, value systems, ambitions and future goals are key to her process. Personal life experiences and self awareness have played an integral role in shaping Anuradha’s thought process in bringing families and individuals together. Her calm demeanor and east meets west personality have always helped bridge the gap between parents and members who may not always be on the same page when it comes to their search for the perfect partner and family member. While Vows for Eternity and matchmaking remain key to what Anuradha does professionally, she feels very strongly about wanting to make a difference and giving back to society. She is an angel investor in a few companies including The Woman’s Company, a venture that produces biodegradable sanitary products for the eco-conscious consumer who wants to leave a better planet for generations to come. She is also the Chairperson and Main Trustee of the Armaan Gauri Foundation which has impacted many lives of under-privileged children in India.

Finding a life partner can be a challenging prospect, one that may lead you to question many aspects of your own life, as you try to understand what it is you are really looking for, in a spouse. To help guide this process, our Founder Anuradha Gupta is available for one-on-one sessions that will help you delve deeper into what the process of matchmaking is all about, and decode what it means to find your ultimate, committed relationship.

Anuradha uses her finely-honed, highly intuitive people skills to personally connect with each individual, taking the time to learn about what makes you uniquely you – and offers her own valuable insights, from over a decade of being in the matchmaking business, to put this journey towards finding “The One” into perspective.

Shyamal Vallabhjee Leadership Coach

Shyamal Vallabhjee wears many hats, including being a sports scientist, psychologist, leadership coach, performance coach, and a healer. In his early days, Shayamal was poised to play cricket for his country (South Africa), however these plans did not materalize the way he envisioned. He instead focused on an academic career in sport, graduating with a degree in Sport & Exercise Science whilst working as the strength coach with the state cricket team

In 2003, he got a break as the Technical Analyst of the Indian Cricket Team during the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Following this, while on a quest to find a more fulfilling life, he chose the life of Brahmacharya (monkhood) vis the Hare Krishna Temple in Durban. The discipline and perseverance that this lifestyle requires taught Shayamal about the power one can yield by simply controlling the mind. It was this monastic life that inspired him to blend the science of emotional intelligence with the principles of spirituality. Convinced of its results, he shifted his focus from physiology towards mental & spiritual health as means of developing that “Winning Mindset.” To date, it remains the core of his development model for athletes, entrepreneurs and organisations in search of purposeful progression.

Shayamal has since spent close to two decades working with elite athletes, celebrities, world-renowned industrialists, children, disadvantaged communities, schools & NGO’s and game changers.

Anjali Puri Therapist

Anjali is a psychotherapeutic counsellor using Transactional Analysis (TA) as her primary way of working. TA is a collaborative, transparent way of working in partnership with clients towards agreed goals, and provides both practical tools and frameworks that help deal with a problem, as well as long-term insight into blocks that keep us from thriving and connecting authentically.

Anjali believes in the capacity of every person to live wholeheartedly and be true to who they are. When we feel stuck or when life seems to go off the rails, the answers often lie in ways of being and relating that we have learnt over time, which no longer serve us. Anjali works with individuals, couples and families, to identify stuck patterns and blocks in communication, to clear the way for new ways of being and relating to emerge.

Anjali has spent 30 years working as a researcher in the area of human motivation and behaviour change, studying the impact of psychology and culture in the choices that people make.

Ashdin Doctor Habit Coach

Ashdin Doctor is the founder of Awesome180, a habit coaching programme. The programme focuses on the following fundamental behaviours – sleep quality (not quantity), nutrition (not diet), movement (not exercise), de-stressing, hydration and breathing. These form the foundation of creating Awesome Lives.

Awesome180 is a labour of love born out of his insatiable thirst for knowledge and a desire to share and change lives. It is for people who feel that their life is in a rut, nothing is changing or going according to plan. We believe that until the Foundation Fundamentals are turned into a set of habits that repeat throughout the day sub-consciously, nothing can change. Habits are the cornerstone to making sure these changes stick. The initial days of setting up the habit is tough, where we hand hold you through the process with one on one coaching. Once the habit has caught on, then there is very little motivation, discipline or drive needed to sustain it. 180 days is all that it takes to master and set these habits. We spend 30 days focusing on one habit at a time. While science says it takes 21 days to set a habit, we are all human and need those buffer days! The last 30 days of the programme are spent fine tuning each set habit.
