I'm a certified Life Coach and WISDOM Coach for kids.
I’m an accredited NLP Practitioner, Time Line™ Therapist and Hypnotherapist.
I’m also honest, trustworthy, kind and compassionate – qualities you want to find in a life coach. I provide a welcoming, safe environment so you feel comfortable opening up to tell me what’s in your heart and your head.
Why do I do what I do?
The greatest part of my job is watching people transform themselves. From the moment they walk into their first session, my aim is to give my clients the tools they need to make any decision, confront any situation or embrace any change in their lives.
There’s a misconception that coaches want to keep their clients forever. And sure, I love keeping in contact with my clients to know what they’re up to. But my deepest satisfaction comes from knowing my clients now have the confidence, self-esteem and self-worth to address life’s situations. When they only need to see me for a quick tune-up, I know I’ve done my job!

How did I become a life coach?
Equal parts timing, luck and intuition!
I was the middle child that grew up a strong-willed, determined tomboy in a small town in South Africa. I was logical, analytical and loved to win an argument. My early years were happy, and I have great memories of growing up with family and friends.
But at aged 21, my brother died in a car accident and my world changed forever.
Rather than deal with my emotions, I buried them deep. I took the anger and the guilt, the hurt and the sorrow and locked them away. I then left for London with the belief that I didn’t need to speak about any of it.
What followed was an 18-year career in the IT&T industry in London, New Zealand and Australia. Loved by clients and corporate management for my drive and dedication, I was the perfectionist who always got the job done. I was also the manager that scared members of my team with my directness and anger at their shortcomings. I rose to the top of my profession, but my health, relationships and friendships suffered in the process.
When I was offered redundancy, it was the blessing I didn’t know I needed. The transition period was to be 18-months and career counselling was part of the package. It was through this I discovered life coaching and I fell in love with the concept as a career.
I qualified as an NLP life coach while working in corporate. I organised an early payout and left a very comfortable 6 figure salary to work in the contact centre for a learning and training centre for a quarter of my income. And I loved every minute of it. For the first time ever, I was making decisions for myself, instead of by, or for, other people. I was using my training to be fully aware of what I was doing, the goals I was setting and how I was going to achieve them.
By 2011 I was working as a personal development and business coach and a constant theme I was hearing was ‘I wish I knew this when I was younger’. It got me thinking about the children of the future and what would happen if they were given the tools for confidence, self-worth and self-esteem at an age that would benefit them the most. So, I became a qualified children’s coach to be able to give them what they need.
By 2016, I was in a position to follow my heart to deliver coaching to children and adults in my own business. Be Your Truth was founded to:
- Empower women to discover their true and authentic self in order to live a joyful, purposeful life
- Support children to understand their thoughts, feeling and emotions in the minefield of growing up in order to achieve their goals
- Teach parents tools and techniques to foster and grow their relationships with their children and each other
Over the years, I’ve worked with people from all walks of life at all stages of life. I’ve heard stories that would make your hair curl and your heart hurt. But my role is not to judge. My role, in your journey, is to show you the steps to discover and create your path. How you choose to walk upon them, is decidedly and consciously, up to you.
