My Coaching

My coaching speciality

I am a certified Integral Coach® and a member of ICF (International Coaching Federation) with ACC credentials with over 280 ICF approved Coach Specific Training Hours and over 150 hours of coaching session hours. I began coaching in 2019, but my passion to leading others towards their greater potential began as a student in Higher Education well over a decade ago. As a coach, I work with individuals, businesses and even schools in a number of different ways. Common themes that emerge in my work have been about building confidence and finding one's authentic potential, particularly empowering this in women, new leaders and young professionals. I have worked with clients in roles of executive, senior and mid-level management, design and media, sales, consulting, education and more. However I believe that one's capacity to take the lead in your growth and act with confidence to grow into your potential for success goes beyond a job title or personal status that you may or may not have right now.

About Me

About myself & my experience

As an integral coach, I use an inclusive approach to offer depth in development for my clients impacting their growth both professionally and personally. While I come from a German heritage, I am South African born, raised and living. While most of my coaching business is online, I currently live in Cape Town. Here I try take advantage of all that both nature and culture has to offer.

My coaching method & approach

My approach to coaching is utilising the integral model to my work. Integral coaching is a discipline focussed on building sustainable​ competencies to achieve personal outcomes and long term excellence in a way that is deeply meaningful for the client.​ It is an evolving methodology intended to be the most comprehensive response to human life. The work is integral due to the inclusion of everything about the client and the client's world for their coaching program - their individuality, social context, background, shared physical environment and their sense of possibility.

Notes / Remarks

Prior to coaching, I worked for a corporate company in the education industry. I was the Marketing Manager and a part of the organisational management of a multi-site institution owned by a publicly listed company. I have experience in leadership, management as well as sales and marketing. As a young and particularly female professional, growing into a leadership role and later an entrepreneur, this previous experience supports the coaching work I can do with clients.
