Hi I’m Dal Banwait – 

The Happiologist

You know that phase when you’re busy ticking off society’s/’the communities’ checklist, thinking it’s the key to personal fulfilment? (Been there, done that). Rewind to my late twenties – reality check! Picture this: perfect life on the outside, but behind closed doors, it was more like a rollercoaster of struggles, and kidding myself and others, that this was the life that was right for me.


I had aced the success game, did everything by the book, but guess what? I found myself wrestling with trauma and anxiety, and facing a serious shortage of courage – allowing years of limiting beliefs to hold me back from being, authentic me.


Then one day, (having ignored numerous signs..they are everywhere by the way), health issues decided to gate-crash my story, and even Western medicine threw its hands up and let me down. And someone (tactfully) asked me, imagine knowing you might only have a year to live, what actions would you take, and how would you want to be remembered? I was shocked, but they were right. The potential of life being cut short provided a weirdly unique perspective, allowing me to really for the first time, understand the value of my existence – just by thinking about my potential non-existence.


That’s when I decided it was high time for me to become the hero of my own story, not others. Cue the quest for inner exploration, observation and peace! I spent years travelling the world understanding cultures and practices; diving into everything from mindfulness to quantum energy healing (yes, I went full-on superhero mode). The result? I cracked the code to mental and physical wellness.


Now, armed with a backpack full of wisdom and as a qualified positive psychology coach, I’m here to help you navigate life’s twists and turns. Let’s upgrade your story too, (minus the years of researching and unnecessary drama)! Together, we’ll embrace a brave new you!

If You Change Nothing,

Nothing Will Change.

I’ve dedicated myself to guiding those navigating the tricky space between expectations and reality. Imagine it as a journey to rediscover your inner strength, identify your purpose, and set off on a path toward genuine happiness. I’m a firm believer in the power of mastering mindset and positive psychology, and I inject that philosophy into everything I share. It’s like the secret sauce for breaking free from the monotony of repetitive cycles.

Currently stationed in London, in the City, I wear two hats – one as a positive psychology coach and the other as a culture and wellbeing ambassador in the corporate arena. I’m here to share the valuable tools and insights I’ve gathered over decades, from across the globe, connecting with a growing community of fellow superheroes, on their own journeys!


I’m a strong advocate that it’s never too late to reshape your life with purpose and happiness. And it doesn’t have to be hard. Don’t overthink it. But if you don’t make any changes, life won’t change. Simple. Curious to learn more? Dive into my practices right here on my social media, blogs and podcasts. Oh, and there’s my novel being published soon – a thoughtful exploration of acceptance, pursuit of purpose, and the quest for ultimate happiness. Stay tuned!

Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character it becomes your destiny.
