Chemin de Conches 48, Chêne-Bougeries, Switzerland

I am a South African based in Geneva, Switzerland, working locally and in South Africa. Providing client-centric solutions for gaining personal mastery and leadership growth. I work with individuals and groups in a personal or organisational context.

I am a certified Integral Coach and ACC accredited with the International Coaching Federation. I hold three non-executive directorships. I have a holistic approach to bringing clarity, ownership, and positive support to my clients. I meet my clients where they are at, whether at the start of their management/leadership career, grappling with challenges, peaking or exiting corporate life. I assist clients to make the most of their personal and professional lives.

What brought me to coaching

I’ve worked with people and organisations across Africa, the USA and Europe and have a thorough understanding of how to engage with the uniqueness of individuals, differing situations, and the cultural environment. Through my journey, I have experienced the highs and lows that life and work have put on my path. I have taken these lessons and developed them into a highly enriching, empowering, often fun, and always effective approach to coaching my clients.

The journey to success takes many forms. I, therefore, work with my clients to reach a point at which they truly see the challenges and obstacles they face as the path to the opportunities they seek.


Current and past clients include: Servest Group, Life Health Care, Centre for Coaching: Sanlam & BIHL (South Africa & Botswana); G3 Business Solutions: Woolworths, Anglo American Platinum & Sioc-Community Development Trust and PAVE.

Previous Background

I’ve held multiple Executive positions in large organizations, including The Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Cell C, Telkom, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Lobedu Leo Burnett. Bankserv, Joburg Social Housing Company, and Nestle. I’m currently a Director of La Roseraie Foundation in Switzerland and the Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative in South Africa. I am collaborating on establishing a cooperative bank in South Africa.
