“My passion for creativity lead me to become a practitioner at the Kobus Neethling Institute. This has allowed me to apply whole brain thinking tools and techniques as well as creativity & creative problem-solving. I work with young and old. I was involved in a Gap Year programme for four years, helping school leavers to focus on employability skills. At the moment, I focus mainly on leadership development, career changes, career stress, work/life balance and burnout prevention. My main passion remains one-on-one life coaching, assisting people to design and plan the well-balanced life they have always dreamed of.”
