"Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"
I have an MA in Counselling & College Student Personnel Administration (Student Affairs) and have worked in senior management roles in university Student Affairs and Public Benefit Organisations (sometimes called NGOs or non-profits) for 40 years. Some significant work experience includes leadership training and development, supervising large teams, facilitating Transformation processes and Organisational Development, starting and running a research consultancy and an export business, and coaching men's basketball teams at university and high school levels. Integral coaching with individuals began in 2018 after participating in the UCT GSB Centre for Coaching (CfC) ACC course, and then strengthening my conceptual tools and experience via the CfC Professional Coaching Course in 2022-2023.
The Artist's Way
My first ever Artist’s Way for Coaches course starts Sunday evenings, 6 August. Three experienced Life Coaches were part of the Jan-April 2023 Artist’s Way at Work course and the material really resonated with them. I use many of the exercises (tools, distinctions, action learning exercises) from Julia Cameron and Mark Bryan’s books in my coaching practice with powerful effects. So my desire is to gather a group of interested coaches to do the course with special emphasis on exploring ways we might use this body of work creatively and practically. I’d love to share this journey with you. Might this be a growing edge and opportunity for you?
Courses and opportunities I recommend from colleagues
Mirror course with Fran Saunders – Starts 7 June 2023; Making art – similar to The Artist’s Way except you make art between sessions. Was a very powerful and fun process for me the first few months of 2023.
Meeting the Map – Landing the Client on the Enneagram with Ingrid Hurwitz – Starts 26 June 2023; I did the Enneagram and Trauma course with Ingrid last year and it has changed how I do everything in my work. Connect with ingrid via her website if you are interested in knowing more.
