I spent 10 years working as an Occupational therapist, mainly in the Psychiatric wards at Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, then lecturing at UCT. I also managed a private Occupational Therapy Practice for several years. After completing my MBA, I spent a year with a Management Consulting firm and then I established and successfully ran my own Guest House with training facilities for 10 years. In recent years I attempted to establish a business growing exotic mushrooms, which never got off the ground, and have worked in the non-profit sector in management and fundraising. My wide variety of experience helps me to understand what others are experiencing.
Why I Chose Life Coaching
Being a Life Coach is a natural combination of my Occupational Therapy skills and my broad spectrum of life experiences. I love to help others by facilitating their development. Life Coaching is a good matching of my listening skills, my practical understanding of life and my ability to see the bigger picture. At the age of 60 I found myself unemployed, needing to start again and feeling it was time I give something back to society.
