I am Areej

I have worked with hundreds of Tech Leaders, Entrepreneurs, CEOs, Celebrities, Politicians, and Royalties, across 20 industries and more than 21 countries . In this journey, I have helped each one to reclaim their inner peace, clarity, and unbound energy in their work.

I have always been drawn to strong leaders. Growing up, my father was very well connected, which meant that major players from the government and commerce would regularly be at our house. In the time when many parents may have sent their kids off to bed, my father had always supported my presence and would let me sit beside him so that I could listen to the discussions. 

I was always encouraged to ask the questions that pop into my head at any time, and in return, my father would encourage everyone around to hear me out. 

Through listening to powerful leaders around the table, I realized – from a young age – that leaders are likely to have personal setbacks and mental blocks just like anyone else. The nature of my upbringing allowed me to feel comfortable asking questions and getting to the “why” behind what powerful leaders were saying and feeling. 

Living my life pulled into psychology and enticed with it, I spent 11 years studying and mastering the profession, that it only seemed natural to have  my path of focus on leadership positions—individuals who were powerful and connected, yet because of the nature of their status, they were often emotionally disconnected and felt alone. 

After having a fulfilling career of working with multiple organizations, I came to the realization that I could offer more—and I could continue to dream and help transform the lives of leaders around the world. As such, I started my own practice in which I expanded my “Spark Back” methodology which I had begun to employ in my previous work.

Now, I am a Transformational Leadership Coach with The Spark back clinic, a specialized boutique since 2016. 


I firmly believe that my knowledge, skills, and experience are highly beneficial to achieve a better purpose, helping organizational managements attain excellence—particularly high achievers and executive leaders.
