Magichive was founded by Subha Parthasarathy with a vision to facilitate self discovery and increase self awareness. The core belief is that there is magic in each one of us that needs to be recognized and nurtured through empathy, compassion and love.

Magichive also aims to improve the understanding and communication between an adult and a child (parent/child , teacher/child) by sharing and exploring various avenues of addressing issues. A holistic insight into the external behavior of a child provides options to a parent/teacher to dig deeper to identify the probable root cause and take necessary action.

Motivation, Self esteem, Discipline, Respect, Empathy, Empowerment etc..are words that most people are familiar with and constantly contend with, at home/school etc. However, they remain just that – mere “words” . One seldom knows how to make these ideas actionable.

Magichive conducts parenting workshops that addresses different aspects of adult-child / child-environment relationship and jointly explores options of implementing ideas.

Parenting is a life long journey. Our sessions attempt to make the journey enriching . Magichive conducts counselling sessions for parents/children. We also take “Play therapy” sessions that are centered on the child.
