I am an Integral Coach and have coached senior executives and managers across industries in South Africa and abroad. I hold a BA Hons degree in Industrial Psychology and I am registered at the Health Professions Council as a Psychometrist. Further to this I have two Coaching Qualifications through UCT Graduate School of Business and I am registered with COMENSA and ICF. I spend most of my time as a one-on-one coach also work with leadership teams as a group coach to help them become more effective. Prior to my coaching career my career was focused on OD, HR and Talent and I represented HR and Talent at Group EXCO level.
I follow the integral Coaching methodology and will in the first session only complete intake where I really want to get to know the person holistically. I don’t coach the problem but the person. I assist clients in creating a current and new narrative that allows them to see new possibilities. I recommend 4 coaching sessions and ask my clients to do work in between sessions. I travel to my clients and am based in Gauteng. I charge between R1500 – 2500 per session.
I have been coaching since 2011 and I am passionate about development, connection and creating value for my clients. I have found coaching a great vehicle for achieving this. My clients span a wide range of Leaders from South African’s to leaders transitioning into SA and abroad and because I have worked across cultures it has given me a deep appreciation for the challenges Leaders face that work across cultures and countries. I am especially passionate about assisting new leaders and executives with their development and growth, help expatriates settle into SA and help teams and the organisation become more effective.

I have had a few executive coaches and mentors and it is always fascinating that regardless of age, experience or any of the normal selection “markers” for a coach the process is very similar and the opportunity to stretch one self is always evident. The difference I found with Heidi is her authentic approach and the fact that she truly cares for her coaches. She had a structured and yet fluid approach to our discussions and after the sessions I would reflect and realise we actually completed what we had set out to do however it was very seldomly forced or painful.
She was able to take me on a “structured” journey to enable reflection and providing a narrative for me that was very apt as she took time to get to know who I am, what drives me, what my blind spots are and helped me focus on what is needed for the next step. Heidi takes her role as a coach very personally and goes above and beyond what is expected of her as a coach. She is professional and passionate about the service and support she provides and understands that this is a critical step for someone and is there every step of the way. I would highly recommend Heidi as I never felt like a coachee, we went on a journey together and through this collaboration the objective was achieved.
