Encouraging change, maximising potential
Are you living toward and consciously expanding your potential? The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
Coaching involves a process of exploration and growth through thought-provoking questions and tools. Coaching is aspirational and future focused! What are you dreaming of or working toward?
I have a strong interest in Positive Psychology and strengths-based coaching. Are you interested in understanding how to use your strengths for growth and exploring aspects of your identity and personality? Coaching is about you! Whether you are at a crossroads in your life or career, aspiring to develop your career or business, or looking for greater fulfilment in life, coaching can help you identify your strengths, develop your confidence and find new tools to use for greater success in life and business.
As a coach I aim to work with clients to:
Clarify your vision and goals
Identify sources of motivation and purpose
Encourage and support personal development
Explore new ways of doing things, options and opportunities
Encourage you to take further steps toward your ever-expanding potential
Following years of experience supporting the development of women’s careers and businesses in housing and construction, including experience in mentoring, I have decided to expand my scope into coaching. In 2018 I completed the Professional Business Coaching Programme at the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) and am working toward accreditation with the International Coach Federation (ICF).
I thrive when I’m learning, growing, and getting to know myself better. I thrive and feel happiest when I’m working toward my potential and doing something that is meaningful to me! When working with women in the housing and construction sectors I realised that I loved discovering new aspects of my own potential and personality as well as seeing others go through this process. I have chosen coaching as one of my core services as it will enable me to work with a wide variety of people to partner with them in discovering and working towards their own meaningful and thriving lives.
Happiness is the joy you feel moving toward your potential
