My life coaching assists with the journeys we travel throughout life. The challenges we encounter during these life transitions can be highly stressful and the emotional reactions can be debilitating. Journeys such as midlife inevitably results in leaving behind certain things and having to deal with new things. Existential Coaching and Transition Coaching assists with the losses, emotions, stress and making new meaning in life.

My business coaching services includes executive coaching (e.g. coaching for behaviour and emotional intelligence in the workplace) and business coach (e.g. coaching for strategic market development, business decision-making, performance improvement, business transitions and organisational changes).


My business experience includes 25 years of corporate work. I have a solid background in business intelligence & performance visualisation, project & program management, project office management, organisational change management, quality management and business process management. I have been coaching since 2008 and my own personal transition brought me to my own business – ThroughTheLine Coaching & Consulting.

In 2015 I was one of the first members of COMENSA to be credentialed as a SAQA recognised professional coach, with the designation COMENSA Senior Practitioner (CSP). I subscribe to COMENSA’s Code of Ethics and receive regular supervision as required by the profession. Furthermore, I have a strong interest in research and in Evidence-Based Practice and serve as the vice-chair of COMENSA’s Research Portfolio Committee.

I am the publisher of CoachingNews.Africa, a bi-monthly open access trade publication for the coaching industry and coaching profession in Africa – find us here:

How I work

The first contact session of 60 minutes is an introduction to coaching and an overview of your situation. This is a free consultation session.  If we decide to continue with coaching, I will provide you with a Coaching Agreement, documenting the way we will work, what we want to achieve and the logistics of the coaching.

A typical coaching programme consists of 6 – 8 sessions of one hour each, meeting at least once per month.

Coaching hours are during weekdays between 9:00 and 18:00 but can be arranged for weekends or public holidays should your schedule be too full.

I am available online using Zoom and WhatsApp – contact me for your introductory session.
