Curriculum Vitae

I attended the More to Life Program in 1996. Since then I have been facilitating More to Life courses, The Power of Purpose and the Power of Self Esteem, and have run over 30 courses. In 2009 I became a certified Life Coach and I provide individual as well as corporate coaching.

I have a background in Speech and Hearing Therapy and worked with children in the field for 10 years, maintaining two practices and employing therapists, guiding and nurturing them along the way.

In 2003 I began to study Logotherapy – Viktor Frankl's counselling approach which helps people heal through finding meaning in their lives. I became a Diplomate Clinician in Logotherapy (Unisa Applied Centre of Psychology, in conjunction with the Viktor Frankl Institute, Dallas). I served as a trainer of the Advanced Student's Program at Unisa from 2005 - 2007 and am a board member of the Viktor Frankl Institute of South Africa. I develop and run workshops for bringing Logotherapy and More to Life to various groups and organizations in the community. In 2009 I designed and trained a corporate workshop “Stress Management at Work – the Healing Power of Meaning” which blends principles and tools of both Logotherapy and Life Coaching.

I am passionate about helping people tap into their nobility of spirit and live their lives with a deep sense of meaning and purpose. The More to Life coaching blended with Logotherapy allows me to facilitate personal transformation in a professional way, and answers my personal call to meaning in my life.

Together with my husband Ron, we lead an orthodox Jewish community of 50 families from our home in Johannesburg. As a mother of 7 children and grandmother of 3, I find my skills invaluable in serving my community and supporting individuals in the community with personal and family issues.

Meaningful quotes

What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.
Viktor Frankl
