“Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”

Sally is a sought after Professional Executive Coach based in Durban but works also in Cape Town and Gauteng as well as Internationally. She has over 500 hours of executive coaching practice and has worked as a coach for 6 years. She works throughout Africa and internationally via skype coaching or in person. She practices as a coach, facilitator and as a mentor developing leaders, management and teams working with them in a holistic approach, designing unique and tailor made interventions to meet their needs. She also works with professional individuals who seek to gain greater insight and grow as individuals. Sally stimulates thought provoking conversations within a safe and open framework. The mind thinks clearer when we are allowed to delve deeper without any interruptions, removing false assumptions and seeing the whole picture clearer. We are able to live more optimally when our thinking is clarified. Coaching doesn’t have to be for life. It can be as short as a couple of sessions to clarify an idea, or longer assisting you through a period of transition, change or improvement.

She is an accredited ACC Coach and member of the International Coaching Federation.   She presently holds the position of Regional Lead for KZN for the ICF. Sally is also a member of ABCCCP, the African Board for Coaching, Consulting and Coaching Psychology.

She coaches both in person and virtual platforms such as Skype for those who have time restrictions and/or due to travelling commitments.

TESTIMONIALS

Thank You Sally ! We had fun and I can most certainly say that this workshop inter-action was just what our team needed to begin a journey towards more introspection and respect towards each other... and most importantly to have more FUN, TOLERANCE AND RESPECT to what makes each of us UNIQUE. Executive, Novo Nordisk… March 2016

Through her delightful and professional way, Sally truly helped me to think more clearly, to focus on the core of my issues and to address these effectively and efficiently. Sally showed me why I should be proud of my achievements and to be-lieve in myself. My confidence levels grew and I felt increasingly comfortable to face my team and the demands my new role had placed on me.
She kept me sane and upbeat in times of deep anxiety, I am forever grateful to her for all the time and mentoring she afforded me, she is a fantastic coach.

You have been able to show me sides of myself that I didn’t even realise existed, in addition to this your gentle beautiful manner and wit really allowed me to be myself which I actually don’t find very easy with many people.
I have learnt more from you than you can imagine and will continue to speak stern-ly/stand up to my inner critic and live a less dramatic black and white/perfection or failure existence thanks to you. I am so grateful for my time with you.
