Welcome to Grey Mahout!

The name "Grey Mahout" draws inspiration from the term "mahout," traditionally used to describe elephant trainers or caretakers in Southeast Asia. By adopting the role of a mahout for our minds, we can train our thoughts and beliefs to work in our favor rather than against us.

I really enjoyed working with Athira.  She has a way to get you to pause and really see those unseen abilities that you always had but didn't realize existed.  By working with her she helped me see my own confidence and helped me break down the barriers that were in the way of establishing and really going for my chosen career path.  It is thanks to her that I am now taking the next steps in my business.  Thank you Athira!!!
