This is who I am
I truly believe now that integral coaching does help develop the capacity of people to meet in the field that Rumi writes about (on my homepage), where it becomes possible, through coaching, to live and work in a more sustainable, co-created and integrated way.
In 2019 in Rwanda I had a longed-for experience with the silverback gorillas. In their presence I felt fundamentally moved by the non-duality of life and a natural sense of connection on all five of those levels. I understood clearly that I had chosen to be in the service of the world.
The meaning my life has been given through this and my journey confirms that I want to give that wholeness to others through fully integral coaching.
Who are you?
The roots I draw from are diverse
I’ve published many psychology articles in peer-reviewed journals.
I’m an avid advocate of diversity, believing it adds a depth and richness to life and the workplace.
I began a career as an audit article trainee at PWC, exposing me to a broad client base and experience in the corporate environment. Then I worked at Stellenbosch University, my last position being that of Deputy Director: Student Fees and Debtors. A career of over 15 years in accounting and leadership built me a solid foundation for developing employee potential and evoking excellence.
I have experience of facilitating diverse workshops with multi-cultural teams, in the private and public sectors. I’ve gained wonderful experience from working with people from extremely different walks of life. I’ve coached numerous national and international clients, across diverse industries and have proved my expertise on EU-funded projects.
But the real value that I bring is my resilience and the compassionate understanding I gained from life’s experience.
