I love to work with people in a private and personal space. I work with a process called iRock which I’ve developed over the past couple of years. This process is also part of ongoing research, so you know it’s got a fair amount of rigour and proven technology behind it.

If you are thinking about getting a Life or Executive Coach, I suggest that you interview a few coaches to see who you gel with, what suits your budget and what process works best for you. Don’t just take any coach.

What should I ask a prospective coach?

There are a few things you can and should ask your prospective coach. They should have some testimonials on their website. Do they have some sort of certification in coaching? Are they mentors for reputable organisations like the Business Women’s Association? Are they registered with any professional body, like the HPCSA, COMENSA or ICF? Do they themselves have a coach ( preferably more than one) Do they specialise in a particular area or are they a jack of all trades? (Beware of the ‘I can coach anybody’. You’re not going to go visit your GP when you need heart surgery – you know what I mean.)

How long are the sessions?

The coaching session differ in length. Our first session or kick – off session is usually a bit longer than the others – 90 min. We review the results of your questionnaire and agree on the boundaries/parameters of our coaching engagement. I share how we’ll review progress and deal with sensitive issues. Subsequent coaching sessions are either 45 min twice a month or 90 min, once a month.

Do you coach via telephone or Skype?

I coach via telephone, Skype or in person. Coaching is supported by e-mail notes and access to a secure online accountability module that both of us can access anywhere, any time, any place in the world. I’m based in Port Elizabeth, the beautiful Eastern Cape in South Africa and one of only a handful of Eastern Cape coaches.

How do we get started?
We first meet for a consultation to make sure I’m the right coach for you. You can set up an appointment by phoning me or sending me an e-mail. I usually respond within 48 hrs. Not everybody gets to work with me 1-on-1, so I do have a little selection process just to make sure we area good fit for each other. If not, I refer you to one of my colleagues who may better serve you.

If you are interested in working with me I encourage you to complete the application below and send it to me for consideration.
