RAHUL BAM

Founder

Rahul Bam has been working in the field of de-addiction and rehabilitation for the past 15 years. He has pioneered in this field by introducing new ways to perceive and treat these afflictions. Some are based on the latest research and findings of the scientific community, others adhere to ancient Indian wisdom that is still most relevant in today’s materialistic world. He is a trained arts-based therapist and mixes his many influences in the fabric of recovery that is offered in his rehabilitation centre called Positive Learnings Space in Pune.

SALVA BAM

Founder

Salva Bam is a psychologist who brings a fresh and exuberant perspective to an otherwise pedantic field of work. Due to her life experience and her training, she manages to constantly find new and better ways to do the things that need to be done to create an environment that is conducive to recovery and healing. Thinking out of the proverbial box is her strong suite and she is not one to take the easy way out. She will make sure all the work is put in to achieve the set goals.

Her take on treatment is one that is backed by lots of study and observation and yet it is tailored to the conditions that are applicable to any particular client. Her vast empathy toward all living beings is the guiding force in all that she does. When she is not working at the centre or something related to it you will find her taking care and feeding cats and dogs wherever she finds them. She believes that life is a life and everything that lives should have the chance to be happy.
