Jimmy Mody grew up in a family of ‘heavy weights’. His father and his two uncles were great personalities and even greater achievers. His father Kali Mody pioneered the first credit card operation in India. His Uncle Piloo Mody was a great parliamentarian and political leader; he was a cofounder of the Swatantra Party. His elder uncle Russi Mody was best known as India’s man of steel. He chaired the Tata Iron and Steel Co, and made his mark as a great leader of business and industrial relations.
Jimmy made a mid-life career change, giving up all his business aspirations to train and then practice as a psychoanalyst. Moving thereafter into the world of clinical hypnotherapy and past life regression. He has been practicing as a psychotherapist now for nearly 21 years in Mumbai city.
He has given many talks to Rotary Clubs on ‘Leadership’ and ‘The power of the Mind’. More recently his talk on ‘the Value of Relationships’ was very well received at the Sophia Bhaba College and again at a meeting of the INDUS Women’s Association, Mumbai.
