Personal Development Consultant & Life Coach, Facilitator for PET South Africa

I have been in the adult learning environment for more than 15 years, am a qualified ODETEP (Occupational Directed Education Training and Development Practices), facilitator and life coach,

I’ve made it my personal mission to create moments where people can experience powerful ‘AHA’ moments. It is my passion to facilitate learning that has impact and has the potential to change lives. To empower people to be all they are capable of, helping them unlock their true potential and transforming it into results are some of the most satisfying experiences I’ve had.

More importantly, I am also a mom of two beautiful boys aged 4 and 2, and have the unique opportunity to be a stepmom to an 12 year old in a reconstructed family.

When I first attended the Parent Efficiency Training (P.E.T) workshop, the entire time spent was a series of great AHA moments. I underwent a life changing experience and felt empowered to unlock my true potential as a parent! It was impossible to imagine not sharing these phenomenal discoveries and insights with everyone I know. I had to become part of this team. I feel as if I’ve been preparing my entire life to live this purpose of giving parents power tools to develop emotionally intelligent children who will ultimately help change the world and make it a better place – one child, one family at a time.  

One of my favourite quotes by Marianne Williamson, also used by Mandela in his Inauguration speech is: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

We can sow the seeds. With the right nurturing and care, we can experience the joy and exhilaration of seeing the grass growing and the flowers blooming.
