Having grown up in South Africa, been educated in England, built a family business in Portugal and lived in India during a landscaping project, I can safely say I have had a life of adventure. I have always preferred to follow my intuition. I have learnt to live life from my 'gut', how I 'feel' rather than as I 'should'. When I don't, I usually get "feedback"! I followed my intuition to leave a corporate career and retrain to build a landscaping business. Making career changing choices does not come without challenges. Facing those challenges led me to enquire further into my own personal empowerment and self reference. Since then the topic of self empowerment has become a personal passion of mine. I have spent the last 25 years on a personal study of the mind and how to manage it; drawing from ancient knowledge, techniques of meditation, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. I have experienced how pivotal breath is to our state of mind and emotional wellbeing. From these life experiences I have developed a collection of life tools that have become a powerful resource for living life in a balanced way. Coaching and NLP have simply added to that.
Studying NLP has been a revelation, seeing the similarities between the knowledge of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and the mind body wisdom contained within ancient texts. NLP has outlined a model for our mental, emotional and physical behaviour and played a significant part in structuring personal development into an understandable art.
I am passionate about Coaching & NLP. It works. Seeing my clients arrive with a mix of their fears, concerns or challenges, my reward is to see them leave with a toolbox of resources and strategies to create the desired changes and forward momentum towards their goals.
