"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.

Courses and opportunities I recommend from colleagues
I highly recommend: Enneagram Community of Practice run by Renate Landman and Ingrid Hurwitz. Meets the last Saturday of the month in the late afternoons. There is no charge to attend their community sessions and no RSVP is necessary. Everyone is welcome. Contact me directly and I will forward you the information, alternatively you can join their Facebook group for updates and discussions.
Jung Certificate Course – I took this course in 2023 and highly recommend it. Applications close 17 November 2023. Find out more at the following link.
The UCT Centre for Coaching, based in the UCT GSB Executive Education department, offers a range of Coaching, Leadership and other training programmes that I highly recommend.
The Mirror with Fran Saunders – 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. Contact me directly and I will forward your email to Fran.
The Kwappa Expedtion: Exploring Leadership Beneath, Between and Beyond in the Heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, (formerly titled Tracking and Depth Leadership), with Hélene Smit (The Depth Leadership Trust) and Francois Malherbe (The Curiosity Company) – 4-11 February 2024. Powerful, beautiful, edgy experience of literally embracing an explorer mindset - learning to ‘track’ animal tracks in the wild and notice your inner and external context, while exploring depth processes to develop and strengthen ethical, contextual, curiosity-driven leadership. Kwapa Camp is a safari guide training camp with no fences around the tents – a unique experience I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend, in the very skillful care of Hélene and Francois. Download both brochures if you are interested.
