I am Director and Lead Trainer of HeartMath South Africa, as well as being a licensed 1:1 Provider, Coach, and Executive Coach.
A Short BioAlthough my personal journey with HeartMath® started several years ago, it was only in mid February of 2011 that I first realized the full potential and benefits of incorporating HeartMath into my daily life when I overcame a two year depression in two weeks without any medication. A relationship of 11 years ended for me in December 2008, and for the next two years I tried resolving how I felt about it by trying to think about it differently. The tools of counseling and NLP I had at my disposal didn’t seem to work. The more I tried to change my thoughts about it the deeper into depression and hopelessness I went. “Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” – Albert Einstein It was then in February 2011 that I met Andy Pellant, who currently holds the license for HeartMath in South Africa and the UK. I also met Casper Huisamen, a GP with a practice at MediSpa in Cape Town, and with their guidance set about practicing the HeartMath tools and techniques for 20 minutes a day. My depression lifted, and two weeks later, as the Universe and life so happens to conspire, I found myself faced with the source of my depression – my ex. It was in that moment that I knew something in me had shifted; and it was in that moment I knew I was ok. I no longer felt the pang of that loss. Rather, I felt at ease. Peace. Calm. Centered. Appreciative. And Coherent. My journey since has been one of wonders and amazing unfolding as I’ve enjoyed being instrumental in establishing HeartMath here in South Africa. And now it’s time to give something back. HeartMath’s non-invasive protocol is now my main focus and adopted methodology for coaching, but I have many more tools cultivated over the years to call upon. Amongst others, these include being:
- a PNI (Psycho-Neuro-Immunology) counselor
- a Hypnotherapist
- a life coach & NLP practitioner
- a massage therapist
- a reiki master and teacher
