    I have spent my whole life trying to acquire as much knowledge as I possibly can which has driven me to travel the path to the person I am today. I attended and graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA in 2013. While there, I avidly studied all I could about my trade--Creative Writing. I have been reading my entire life and have always wanted nothing more than to share my own stories with the world, and also prevent stories from having egregious errors in them while on the shelf. I threw myself into any and every venue that may grant me experience; I was an editor for Pepperdine's literary magazine, Expressionists, worked every possible position in our library from Reference Librarian to even Computer Technician. I was even one of the head tutors for Pepperdine's Writing Center, a place where students could go to receive editing and writing help on their homework. By the time I was ready to graduate with my degree, I had even earned the title of a member of Sigma Tau Delta, the nationally-known English Honor Society. Once I graduated, I searched for a job as an editor and finally found one with Brighton Publishing, LLC. I have been working with them since November 2013 and have adored my work there. Because it is a smaller company, I had the honor of working directly with the CEO and owner of the company who has been teaching me all she knows about editing and publishing, and my knowledge has expanded drastically ever since. My greatest skill, in my opinion, is my ability to learn, learn quickly, and retain what I've learned. Depending on the volume of information, it rarely takes me more than a week to learn the inner workings of most jobs. Give me instruction and I will perfect it within days, and usually come up with a more efficient way to do things to boot!  less

    I help people create joy in their life by using a simple yet powerful tool called PSYCH-K (sigh-kay). It is user-friendly way to rewrite the software of your mind and change the printout of your life. Change with this process is easily, effortless and faster than any other modality I have discovered so far. Psychologists have discovered that 95-99% of our thoughts, emotions and behaviour, both constructive and destructive, originate from subconscious mind, not the conscious or logical mind. Subconscious mind is the seat of your life. It will give you everything you desire when its correctly programmed. It may also kill you when programmed with self-sabotaging beliefs. Unfortunately, most of people are operating from self-sabotaging beliefs. Most people inspite of reading hundreds of self-help books and attending life changing seminars keep doing same old things they have been doing. Why? Because they target the wrong part of your mind i-e conscious mind which has little or no control over your life. Consciously, through will power (processing capacity: 4 Bits per second), we try to beat subconscious mind (processing capacity: 40 Millions bits per second). Who will win? Of course, subconscious beliefs, no matter if it has self-sabotaging. In PSYCH-K, we help people change their self-sabotaging beliefs in matter of minutes and align their subconscious beliefs with their conscious goals to create financial abundance, physical, emotional and social well being, improved relationship, improved job performance, self-confidence, expanding spiritual awareness, and much more. Because subconscious behaviour is automatic or habitual, your new beliefs become your thoughts, feeling and behaviour like self-fulfilling prophecy rather than a day to day struggle. Please feel free to contact me for skype or phone sessions. I look forward to helping you unleash your potential. Dr Preet, M.D., PSYCH-K Facilitator  less
