My passion for coaching ignited when I was partnering parents in their journey of growth for their children as well as managing a diverse team of people. I realised the importance of having a sounding board, a good support system and not being afraid to ask for help. I had many opportunities in mentoring people who are struggling, frustrated, overwhelmed or clueless. These feelings of being surrounded by setbacks, obstacles and adversities are not unfamiliar to us. I believe that It is more a question of what we make of it than what happens around us. What would be helpful are perspectives, how we respond or react and attempt to make sense of the circumstance.
Having 3 children of my own (including 2 teenagers), I realise the importance of communication and being open to listen (including reading between the lines). Juggling the role of mother, doctor, coach, fashion consultant and shopping buddy has been life-giving. To help me re-charge and re-energise, I enjoy playing tennis, going for runs/hikes and a nice meal paired with wine with friends and family.
“Dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
