My interest in coaching people and organizations undergoing significant change and transition was sparked by a radical transition process I began twelve years ago. This included getting married (as a late bloomer), going back to study, changing careers and starting my own business after several years as a high school teacher of English. My transformation from someone who was afraid of change to a confident, qualified and experienced facilitator and coach (with 2500 coaching hours) working with corporates, NGO’s and private individuals was kick started by a coaching process I entered into after attending a career reinvention workshop. Through that I articulated my vision for the next stage of my life and set the goals, strategies and action plans which took me from where I was to where I am today
As a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), accredited globally with the ICF (International Coach Federation) and locally with COMENSA, as well as accredited Enneagram Practitioner, I coach and facilitate in organizations and with private individuals, resourcing executives, leaders and teams to make the changes and transitions which will turn their vision into reality.
With over a decade of practical experience across a range of industries my Executive Coaching, Team Coaching and Change Management services include the following:
My client base is diverse with the only constant being my clients’ acknowledgement of change and their expressed desire to derive benefit from the change process. Clients range from:
My style of coaching has been described as relational, intelligent and holistic. I draw on diverse models and tools from business, psychology and neuro-science. Working alone, partnering with colleagues, or as consultant to top leadership consultancies – where coaching and facilitation are part of a holistic programme of developing leaders – I enjoy equipping leaders with coaching skills to complement all their other skills, imparting learnings that form an integral part of their leadership development. I facilitate a coaching process which evokes the innate wisdom and potential of my clients and results in personal growth and the achievement of desired outcomes.

As an Enneagram practitioner trained by Enneagram Integrative Solutions, I have experienced how working with individuals and teams using this tool as a framework offers in depth insight and opens a pathway to self- discovery and self- awareness. It reveals both what holds an individual back as well as the potential for growth and transformation.

“If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.”
This full life of curiosity and engagement with the world is there for all of us. The coaching journey is part of what makes that possible. I look forward to the journey with you (and where relevant, your organization)
