The Storyteller: Ever since I was a child the words ‘Once upon a time…’ got my ears pricked up, my heart beating and I would listen. Stories serve a multitude of purposes – the entertain, they teach, they pose questions at just the right moment… Stories help us to make sense of our lives, bring the logical together with the emotional, awakening the soul. I work with stories in various ways – I Perform, I use them in my Teaching, Facilitation and Coaching to explore issues and I help people listen to and tell their own stories
The Poet, Writer and Singer: I have recently published Flame and Song: a memoir (Modjaji Books, 2016), It is a story narrated in both prose and poetry. Over the years l have published a number of poems, and some children’s books too (see the Publications page). I am working on a collection of poems at the moment. In my facilitation and leadership work I encourage people to write and to sing. I have facilitated processes with people in the corporate world, and in government departments and used singing to explore concepts like multi-functional teams or leadership. I have invited participants to write poetry – and loved their delight when they saw what they had created.
The Facilitator and Coach: I create spaces in which people can, individually or collectively, explore issues, find solutions, understand themselves and their situations, make decisions about where they want to go, and what they need to do to get there. I work with private individuals, and I also do work within organisations.
