About me

Hello, I'm Ilse 👋🏼

I help people and organisations succeed. 

💭 Do you ever get the feeling of being stuck, yet the more you do the less you seem to move forward?
💭 Do you ever think there is MORE out there for you, but you struggle to visualise what that looks like?
💭 Do you ever wonder if you're achieving your true potential?

I've been there. I've lived it. I understand.

Now, I want to HELP you...

If my epic 8-year transformation journey has taught me anything, it's that anything is POSSIBLE.

→ I left the country I called home for 42 years
→ I sold most of my belongings
→ I left a 'successful' corporate career
→ I lost 110lb of weight
→ I left a toxic relationship
→ I upskilled myself and set up new business ventures

Now I live the life of happiness, fulfillment and joy that I've always dreamed of.

My journey taught me that theories and techniques can only take you so far. So when you work with me, I focus on equipping you with the right mindset to make braver choices and work with you towards achieving positive outcomes.
 
The kind of outcomes that are right for your life and business!

I draw upon my REAL-LIFE experience as a founder of 3 successful business ventures to help you remove fears, embrace new and exciting challenges and get MORE from life.

Are you ready to achieve your impossible?

Both Louise and Ilse are professionals of the highest order, and I would recommend them highly and wish their business every success. CEO - Financial Services, Johannesburg

LET'S TALK
ABOUT...

Empowering you to achieve your full potential in life, career and business. There doesn’t need to be anything ‘wrong’ to seek a coach, perhaps just a feeling that you could achieve more.

Coaching helps you grow as a person and scale your abilities; it’s about finding true life satisfaction.

HOW I HELP

I KNOW WHAT WORKS WHAT DOESN’T AND WHY

You are a human being first before you are an employee, business owner, partner or parent. Understanding yourself is the first and most important step towards changing any aspect of your life and having a fulfilling and successful career. With me there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to coaching, I believe your coaching experience should be unique to you.

You will benefit from my broad experience to identify and harness your unique strengths and accelerate your outcomes.

Traditional coaching models tend to focus solely on how we think to create positive actions for change. I believe it is important to work with all aspects of ourselves – cognitive, physiological and emotional, in order to achieve the most significant and sustainable growth.

My Outcome Accelerator is a simplified means of achieving sustained outcomes.

Helping individuals and entrepreneurs to challenge long-held beliefs and to question limiting behaviours, to bring about lasting positive change that allows you to build the life, career and business that you love. Working with me will give you the opportunity to reach your full potential.

When you want to achieve any outcome in your life – like losing weight, getting fit, managing your health or filing your tax return, you will probably hire an expert to help you. Achieving total life satisfaction is no different – that’s where I come in.

OUTCOME ACCELERATOR
The Outcome Accelerator is a fast and effective coaching method to identify and resolve any barriers that hold you back from achieving your goals. Outcomes are immediate and permanent, thereby fast-tracking your success. This method has helped my clients get extraordinary results.

The basic premise of the outcome accelerator is to move from just setting goals, to enjoying true transformative growth. Goal setting is an important part of the journey, but without the resources to achieve them, they may never be more than ideas on a page.
