Further information


"Neil is a highly experienced coach who knows how to work with his clients to maximize the benefits that they want from the sessions. His coaching has benefitted me immensely both personally and professionally. It has helped me to be more present, self-aware and to have a greater sense of purpose. Importantly, it has also helped me move into action in important areas of my life - confronting difficult situations, getting physically fit and actively pursuing career and financial goals. The coaching journey with Neil is some of the best time I have invested in myself and is highly recommended." Anthony Popper, Direct Sales Manager

"Neil embodies to me what coaching is all about, namely, that each coachee has answers to their own issues, challenges or problems. In all our coaching sessions, in addition to feeling heard and held, I really felt that Neil’s focus was completely on helping me unlock breakthroughs to accessing my own potential as a human being I particularly liked his use of distinctions is facilitating these breakthroughs". Dr. Ngao Motsei, Integral Coach, Leadership Consultant and Director of Companies

"It was a privilege to have Neil as my Mentor Coach and have been tremendously touched by his coaching. He has an extraordinary way of hearing beyond my words and providing profound insights which have been life changing. His kind and gentle nature made for a real connection. I am forever grateful to this special human being". Cassy Fourie, Talent Developer (CHO), Midmar Group

"Neil has an amazing ability to quietly listen and assimilate and then to ask deep and probing questions. Throughout the course of my coaching, he challenged me to learn more about myself, my aspirations and my fears. As a result, I have learnt the importance of remaining true to myself and aligning my heart, soul and mind in everything I do. While my journey of self-discovery is far from complete, Neil’s coaching has equipped me with many of the tools that I will need to continue. I would definitely recommend Neil to anyone looking to embark on a similar journey." Gareth Tennick, Actuary

"I found coaching with Neil to be really beneficial and his personality was well suited to my coaching needs. He listens well and challenged me in ways which enabled me to come up with different perspectives which I had not previously considered. I certainly received benefit from our time together and grew from the experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Neil for his coaching expertise." Andrew McLean, Business Owner

“I was blessed to be mentored by Neil, as a senior and experienced coach, during my professional coaching studies. Without fail, I came away from our sessions with deeper, more objective insight into my path and a clearer view of the action steps ahead of me. Neil’s ability to calmly listen, caringly challenge keys areas and practically reveal a less obstructed road ahead was inspirational – both to my development as a coach and in serving my own personal and professional growth.” Brent Harris, Primal Pathways

"Neil is highly experienced and professional. His calm, attentive approach, makes one feel understood and empowered. Each engagement with Neil was beneficial and insightful and I am truly grateful for my time with him". Lindsy Carter-Bolus, Executive Coach and business owner
