I was in a senior leadership role when I had my first experience of executive coaching and it changed my life. I thought my coach had magic powers, because I left that coaching session with a level of clarity and certainty I hadn’t felt in years.
I love helping people achieve positive change in their lives – identifying the areas for growth that will make the biggest difference to their confidence, career, and/or wellbeing. I especially love working with people to stretch their thinking and explore new possibilities. Through coaching I help people take a step back and get clarity about their personal vision, then make changes that will move them toward that.
I have coached people at almost every level of seniority and stage of life, from an incredibly diverse range of backgrounds and industries; what really lights me up is working with people to uncover their unique strengths and find their motivation, or ‘spark’. A recent client wrote:
“I really valued and enjoyed our sessions, they came just at the right time for me as I go back into work after 3 periods of maternity leave. The sessions really clarified for me what I should be focusing on and why I feel so happy and motivated when I am drawing on my strengths. … All these things have motivated me and given me confidence. I’m also happy to report that my promotion interview went well and I got promoted. Your sessions really helped pull together all of my experience to clearly articulate my business case so it was great timing.”
I’m a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and my commitment to the profession of coaching led me to be the current President for the ICF’s SA Branch.
