When I came to coaching I was close to burnout! I was working long hours, had no energy and my confidence was crushed . Michelle never judged, she helped me unpack my negative beliefs and regain confidence. I tried new things and was surprised how soon I was talking about and putting plans in action .
DUDU, SENIOR ACCOUNT DIRECTOR
I feel like I have grown wings. Michelle, you have helped me to take the decisions I was avoiding for months. Your questions and guidance made me dig deep and were the catalyst that finally got me into action - My career is on a new trajectory & I'll forever be grateful. Thank you!
I cannot believe the difference in myself, in my relationship with my friends and colleagues! I feel a huge weight off my shoulders, my confidence levels are higher than when I started, I have absolutely achieved what I set out to achieve and more, Michelle is thought provoking, encourages deep thinking and tapping into your inner most feelings, none of which I was comfortable with before I started with her.

A few other things you might be wondering about.
I'm proud to call Johannesburg homeI live in a wonderful neighbourhood that is diverse and filled with energy. I was born in Johannesburg and did all my schooling here. So, when it was time for university, I wanted an adventure. I packed my bags and headed to the University of Cape Town. Living alone at 17, I experienced the joy of freedom for the first time and many bottles or wine, late nights and last minute test submission later, I graduated with my Honours in Business Science. This was to be the foundation of my future -first as a leader and now as an entrepreneur and coach. After that, I spent a few years in London, but the call of Africa has always been loud and soon I returned. And stayed. I built a global career from here and have raised my family here. And despite having travelled to many wonderful places nothing beats the feeling of returning to the place and the people that I call home.
I've always been an enthusiatic overachieverI love a gold star. I’m a perfectionist, and a driver – fuelled by a challenge and willing to work harder than most people I know. A classic “A” Type personality. Which probably explains why I’ve often over committed myself and over scrutinized my life and work. I’ve pushed myself to reach the high expectations I had of myself – both personally and professionally. Exhaustion, plate spinning and never being satisfied - I know them well! Now I channel my energy and perfectionism into delivering exceptional coaching and experiences. The insights I share are all things I’ve lived and the tools, are tools I’ve used and return to often. My biggest achievements to date? Raising my 2 beautiful children and working with remarkable people every day.
I'm passionate about empowering womenThroughout my career I have enjoyed helping other women succeed. I continue to be a vocal supporter of women at industry events , run free workshops on the power of self-promotion and am committed to helping women lead and live with confident authenticity.
I'm a committed lifelong learnerI’ve always been curious about my own potential and the potential of others. My bookshelves are stacked with the personal growth books that I’ve devoured over the years but now days, I get my kick out of listening to podcasts and trying out new wellbeing solutions.
