Coaching and Coach Training

Co-active appreciative coaching is about

  • believing in the client’s own resourcefulness, wholeness and creativity
  • believing in the client’s potential to become more of who they are
  • focusing on the best experiences of the past, bringing those into the present and creating the client’s desired future
  • creating awareness and options to notice and amplify this
  • shifting limiting beliefs and embracing new life-giving beliefs to support the change
  • ongoing learning and personal development

I work as a Personal Coach – enabling transformative change in people. Whether you are at a crossroads in your life, want to move into a different career, want more balance in your life, want to develop new leadership strategies and different ways of managing your team and running your business, Personal Coaching offers a powerful tool. The initial contract might be for a behavioural change – but for this to be authentic and sustainable there will inevitably be a shift on the personal level. Within the power and safety of a co-created coaching relationship, I will both support and challenge you to notice outdated thinking, feelings and behaviours, and explore and develop new, life-giving patterns that will enable you to live your desired change.

People with whom I work

I have been privileged to work with people from a great diversity of backgrounds, both in South Africa, London and Ireland and in European and Asian countries via Zoom. I am energized by building a connection with people, whether they are from large corporates or work as rural community health care workers. The spark that draws me to work with people is their desire to grow, their willingness to be authentic and open and their preparedness to claim their responsibility in shaping their futures.

I work with self-motivated people who want to discover more about themselves and also impact the communities in which they live and work. My clients have a connection with their spiritual selves, however, they might express that and are open to learning practices of mindfulness and other techniques, that enable them to be more and more in touch with themselves and fully present in each moment.

Professional Coach Training

I am on the training staff of Coaching Development and train in Africa and India. We have been offering professional ICF accredited coach training in Africa since 2011 and India since 2017.

We offer a blended learning programme called The Coach Practitioner (TCP) which blends an intensive 3 days face to face module with online interactive learning days via Zoom, for the following 5 months, as well as a rigorous cycle of intermodule coaching practice, reflection, recording and receiving feedback from our team of experienced ICF coaches. This programme is accredited as an ACSTH programme by the ICF and equips students to work towards their ACC credential.
