I am a Certified Professional Life Coach from the industry-leading Coaches Training Institute, Certified Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NY, a licensed Firework Career Coach and an ICF Associate Certified Coach.
I have an Industrial Psychology and Industrial Sociology Degree from the University of Cape Town and 11 years experience in Investment Banking in London. After I met my husband I had the opportunity to change careers. I knew the time was right to do what I had always wanted to do - work with women to improve their lives.
I only work with a small number of clients at any one time, which ensures that I can give each individual the time, energy, focus and support that they deserve.
I am a member of the International Coach Federation and abide by their Code of Ethics.
I have faced many challenges in my life – some of which are redundancy, career confusion, losing my mother to cancer in my early 20’s and being an only child, questioning the path of motherhood, relocation, failed relationships, unhealthy relationship with food, body dysmorphia and at times being frightened of my own mind and feeling very alone in the world. These experiences help me to relate to, and empathise with, a lot of the issues and challenges my clients are facing.
Now that I am approaching my 50th year, I feel a strong need to give back and share the wisdom I have gained from having gone through the tough times and come out the other side stronger and confident knowing that I am ok just as I am.
As a coach in a nutshell, I will help you to identify your goals, challenge your self-limiting beliefs and help you to ultimately achieve the life you are after.
As a mentor I am here to help you when you are essentially setting out on your life journey. I feel I am in a good place to be able to understand what you are going through and to help you become a stronger and more confident woman - a better version of yourself, one that realises the power of knowing your self-worth.
I can promise you that life does get better when you have someone to talk to who won’t judge you or share your conversations with anyone. These sessions will help you to find positive perspectives on the way you might be currently seeing the world and once you have recognised the learning you will realise the lesson was for a reason – to help you become a better human being who makes a positive impact on the world and those around you.
I walk the talk and am a firm believer in a holistic way of living to ensure that mental and physical health are given equal care to ensure we are balanced and strong both in mind and body. As a health coach I can advise and guide on the physical side of wellness and have a specific offering which you can read more about if you are interested in www.thegoodhealthcoach.co.uk.
I have travelled to all, but one continent and welcome cultural differences and celebrate shared passions for life and making the most of it. Growing up in South Africa and moving between countries and cities more than once, created my love for change and the very importance of it for personal growth. If you don't make conscious changes in your world, life has a strange way of making them for you... Carpe Diem – seize the day…
