In this week’s feature on our member of the week, we delve into the inspiring journey of Narinder Sheena, the founder of Mapcoach. Find out how she transitioned from a successful 15-year stint in litigation law to a passionate chronic pain and mindset coach. Narinder’s personal journey isn’t the traditional transition from employment to coach; it’s her personal experience of overcoming chronic pain.


After I had my daughter in 2016, I used to suffer tension headaches, and migraines every fourth weekend, which I thought was due to a hectic week. I would ignore the pain symptoms, and continue with the distractions of life, therefore neglected my own wellbeing.

Three years later after having my son I suffered a severe disc prolapse over lockdown, which left me in a debilitating way for months. I was not able to stand or walk for any length of time, and felt helpless and depressed.

The most gut wrenching part was not being able to look after my kids, or see a way out of my chronic pain, which was constantly 24/7.

Embracing Change

Narinder’s move to coaching was a result of her personal battle with chronic pain.

She had tried all conventional methods of physiotherapy, and chiropractic treatments, along with massages. After going for an MRI scan, and at a consultation with a neurosurgeon she was advised to have surgery. The most effective treatment, and her path for becoming pain free was coaching.

Coaching with Compassion

At Mapcoach, Narinder employs positive psychology and neuroscience coaching, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and DISC Profiling to craft bespoke coaching packages. Her approach is deeply empathetic, focusing on empowering individuals to navigate their pain and mindset barriers, and to ultimately take back control of their lives.

The Mapcoach Philosophy

Narinder’s methodology is stems from the belief that a positive mindset can profoundly influence pain management and recovery. Her coaching sessions are designed to provide clients with the tools they need to lead fulfilling lives, despite the challenges posed by chronic pain.

Inspiring Others

It was through the support of coaching, and 100% believing I would recover through using daily goal setting to fully recover without any further medical treatment, surgery or painkillers, which transformed my whole life.

The pain presented me a gift and a purpose to help others that were in need of changing their mindset, and to take massive action, and not ignore the pain in their bodies. I know how it feels when you’re desperate to recover, to fear that something has happened to you, and the pain cycle is excruciating. It’s a lonely journey where you think that nobody around you understands your level of pain. This is why I have made this my mission to coach others who are in a similar scenario, and to coach them out of their pain through Mind Action Progress (MAP). My selfcare and wellbeing are non-negotiable.
