Coaching and Counselling

Coaches and Mentors of South Africa (COMENSA) defines coaching as “a professional, collaborative and outcomes-driven method of learning that seeks to develop an individual and raise self-awareness so that he or she might achieve specific goals and perform at a more effective level”. A coach is a thinking partner to accelerate learning and development. Coaches seek to empower others through igniting their thinking, increasing their insight and developing their self-awareness in order to take new actions in their lives.

Coaching is a developing profession that is still in its infancy. Aspiring coaches therefore need to take responsibility to equip themselves to be competent, ethical and knowledgeable practitioners.

Challenging times demand new ways of seeing and new ways of being in order to turn things around and create a better future.

All three of the coaching programmes offered by SACAP (the South African College of Applied Psychology) are now accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).

“The need for coaching and training interventions within organisations is now widely accepted and acknowledged, with 75% of organisations currently offering coaching and mentoring, according to a 2014 survey report by CIPD*.”

Like every other South African township, on the streets of Khayelitsha, the minibus is ubiquitous.
