Workplace training that’s always positive, always practical.
No matter how hard we try, most people suffer from stress, low self-esteem, pessimism, negative emotions, or Imposter Syndrome every now and again. Whether you’re a student, office worker, support staff, middle management or top management, any one (or all) of these modern-day feelings of dis-ease can affect you.
Having worked in South Africa and London in law firms and legal departments of banks and media companies for more than 20 years, I’ve seen it all. I’ve also had to deal with these issues myself, so I have first-hand experience of feeling overwhelmed, suffering from Imposter Syndrome and riding the wave of the fight-or-flight response on a daily basis.
The good news is there are things you can do to help you cope, and I’d love to share them with you and your team.
I offer Career Development group coaching sessions and Personal Development talks on a range of subjects.
Career Development Group Coaching
If you would like your team and staff to grow and excel within the company, they need to be able to identify the area(s) they wish to change. Over two 1-hour sessions I will show the team how to break their job down into eight parts so that they can see what works well, and what doesn’t. They are then able to identify the area they wish to work on first (for instance managing stress or gaining qualifications). With the help of a visualisation exercise I guide them to identify the first step they need to take to move closer to their goal. In the second session a few weeks later, we reflect on the actions they took and use an affirmation exercise to reaffirm new habits or beliefs that will help them excel on their career development path.
Career development group coaching works especially well when done around the yearly or mid-year appraisal/review process, but is equally affective at any other time of the year.
Personal Development Webinars
My presentations always include fascinating, easy-to-understand science that backs why the practical interventions and exercises I suggest, work. Sessions are made as interactive as possible with real-world examples, video clips, Zoom polls and/or worksheets. The presentations are roughly 1 hour with the flexibility of up to 15 minutes either way which makes it ideal for monthly Lunch & Learn sessions.

Personal Development Webinar Topics
Using your body and mind to manage stress
An explanation of how stress impacts the body, followed by a quick stress relief technique and an easy method to break cycles of negative thoughts.
How to feel on top of the world
An exploration of the range of emotions, and how to move up the scale of emotions, to reach the best feeling possible.
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
I’ll show you what to do when you get the feeling that you don’t belong, are a “fraud”, that the faith others have in you to do a good job is unsubstantiated, and that any success you have is mere luck.
The difference between self-confidence and self-esteem and how to improve self-esteem in order to build resilience.
The power of words
The use of affirmations, and rephrasing statements in a positive way, can trigger changes in the brain, allowing us to see opportunities instead of obstacles.
The power of images
What we look at and what we see in our mind’s eye, has the power to shape how we view the world.
