TYPE OF COACHING PRACTISED:
I thrive on empowering others and assisting them to reach their goals, overcome obstacles in their work or personal lives and to inspire different perspectives to allow for greater forward movement.
My work is holistic, believing that one’s work or career cannot be viewed in a linear fashion, but needs to be considered in the greater milieu of life stages, the market place, current environment and internal thoughts and beliefs.
Hence the development desired by my clients allows for a robust transition – a wholehearted movement from one place to a better other. I have found that this fuller approach, involving a deeper understanding of self and individual responses to their environment, allows for increased sustainability of the desired changes.
I am a registered organisational psychologist, having run my own practice in Cape Town for the past 15 years. I keep relevant regarding work trends and approaches and am able to offer psychometric assessments in need.
I work with private individuals, small businesses and corporations, either counselling, consulting, coaching or providing talks and workshops, where my role is to challenge and act as a thinking partner, while fully integrated with the process.
My clients include employees from various sectors: financial, retail, academia, medical, media, recreation and entertainment, NGO’s as well as secondary and tertiary educational institutions.
I am an active member of the registered professional bodies for psychology and coaching.

Area/Type of coaching
I have 18 years of corporate experience in various HR and Training and Development roles. I also have 9 years of experience in a management capacity.
As a coach with a background in psychology, I empower leaders to deliver on their mandate with higher levels of competence and confidence. Coaching interventions focus on building greater levels of capacity for strategy development and execution, communication and inspirational leadership. My work also focuses on personal mastery, improving interpersonal relations, as well as performance delivery as per client requirements. I am able to guide clients to analyze their current reality and refine solutions to meet their goals. My corporate career which includes working extensively with managers as well as consulting to Executives, deepens my understanding of the challenges and complexity experienced by leaders. My management experience provided me with an opportunity to internalise principles and practices of effective leadership. I therefore have a more holistic, integrated approach when coaching corporate leaders. My coaching methodology uses a combination of performance coaching enhanced by aspects of narrative and consciousness based coaching. This is underpinned by tools and techniques grounded in psychology as well as management and coaching theory and practice.
I have experience in a range of assessment tools which can be used to guide the development process of clients.

Area/ type of coaching being practised:
I have been practicing as an organisational psychologist for over twenty-five years. I coach individuals in the corporate, NGO and educational sectors. My training as a psychologist is my departure point and I work at the interface between psychology and the workplace to explore questions around identity, life purpose, relationships and career.
I have completed a doctorate in narrative psychology and I am trained in narrative therapy. My coaching is therefore informed by these ideas and practices. I believe coaching needs to facilitate personal change and forward movement in ways that are congruent with the beliefs and values that people hold dear. I work together with clients to explore the meaning they attach to working life, relationships, organisations and wider society. This strengthened self-awareness helps people to access their personal stories and to identify ways of being that no longer serve them. They are then ready to release old stories and to reshape and transform their lives.
My experience as a conflict mediator, and part time commissioner at the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration, feeds into my coaching work - as clients frequently face conflict related challenges in their work and personal lives. I also offer supervision to coaches and teach in the field of coaching psychology on the Orgaisational Psychology Masters Programme at the University of Cape Town.

Area/ type of coaching being practised:
Neville is a certified Tavistock executive coach and has worked with leaders at various levels in a variety of organisations and industries from aviation to banking, as well as healthcare, retail, finance and manufacturing. While his approach to coaching is eclectic and based on the needs of each client, he favours what is called the systems psychodynamic approach to coaching which essentially means working with the entire system and working below the surface. He works with his clients to understand the role they play in their organisations and the dynamic interplay between the client, their role and the organisation in which they work, at both an obvious and a deeper, hidden level. The purpose is to forge new meanings and understandings and achieve greater clarity about the client him or herself, their work role and the organisation. He likes to think of himself as a thinking partner to his clients. His focus in coaching is on helping leaders achieve their potential in a real and authentic way. His special interest is in assisting leaders with career shifts and transitions (moving into, up, through and possibly even out of an organisation). Neville’s training and experience as an industrial/organisational psychologist in global corporates and specifically his experience as an executive coach have equipped him to work with senior management and leadership in enhancing their work and personal performance by helping them build their personal and organisational capabilities, creating meaning and purpose in their work and non work lives and ultimately, adding value to the organisations they serve.

I am a Consulting Psychologist and a coach in private practice. My life purpose is to enable personal growth, interpersonal relationships and opportunity thinking. I believe that well-being, relationships and ongoing self-development enable performance.

I have over 4200 hours’ coaching experience. Industries include financial services, IT, tertiary institutions, manufacturing, communication, mining, retail, government agencies and healthcare.
I have a D Com (Consulting Psychology), M Com (Industrial Psychology) and I did several short courses in coaching through UNISA, The People Business, SIOPSA, The Village Consulting and Center for Creative Leadership. I am registered as a psychologist at the HPCSA and I am a full member of SIOPSA, COMENSA and the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches. I am a Board Certified Coach with the Center for Credentialing and Education, USA.
My coaching approach draws on Existentialism and Systems Psychodynamics. I become my clients’ thinking partner – providing feedback, supporting, challenging, asking thought-provoking questions, scenario planning, brainstorming, and developing different perspectives on an issue. This results in greater self-awareness, opportunity thinking and improved decisions.
My coaching model integrates the five life domains described by Gosling and Minzberg (Harvard
Business Review, November 2003) as The Five Minds of a Manager: Self, Relationships, Work, Context, and Change. Coaching specialities include leadership, strategic alignment, transitions, change leadership, emotional intelligence, and self-actualisation. I also do coaching supervision.
I make use of psychometric assessments if it is required, e.g. EQi2.0 (emotional intelligence), MBTI Step II (personality type), Enneagram (what drives motivation) and the Career Anchors. 360° measures of leadership competence are also very useful, whether bespoke (qualitative) or a quantitative instrument such as LBI-2.

My 18 years of coaching (and mentoring) experience is in both work and life contexts. I use the principles of integral and ontological coaching, grounded in the behavioural sciences to reframe your Way of Being. The key purpose is to evoke deep change and unleashing the potential in my clients. Through engaging in courageous conversations, observations and practices, I enable my clients to embark on a journey of self-discovery and co-creating meaning of their career and life involving others. The practices which are designed are the key to the application of sustainable mechanisms used for personal, team and organisational effectiveness. My coaching clients have ranged from students, professionals, teams, leaders, executives and board members.
My Specialist Business Experience & Interest is in the following areas: Leadership Development, Organisational Development & Effectiveness, Executive Strategy & Talent Management, Behavioural & Social Economics.
As a life-long student and teacher, I have developed and imparted strengths in Strategic Alignment with Human Capital Development and Talent, Decision-making and Judgment, Group Dynamics, Building Relationships and Networking, Resolving Conflict and Valuing Differences in Others, Effective Communication and Listening, Planning and Organising, Business Acumen and Entrepreneurship and Work-life balance in Executives and CEOs
I am a registered industrial psychologist and certified executive coach with 20 years’ OD and 12 years’ coaching experience, working with individuals and teams within a leadership development context.
My Coaching Qualifications include Executive Coaching for Psychologists, Consciousness Coaching Diploma, Systems Psychodynamics Coaching, international certifications in Analytic-Network Coaching and Coaching with the Enneagram, and various international masterclasses at coaching-psychology conferences (Edinburgh, San Diego).
My Coaching Philosophy is such that I view human beings as meaning-making, sense-making, truth-seeking individuals. Through coaching, we are heard, acknowledged, and validated – and we, therefore, become present to and embody our resonant values, beliefs, and ultimately, our unique Truths.
My Coaching Methodology ensures the establishing of a co-creative space that recognises and resonates with the client’s way of seeing and being – with their Truth. The broader aim is to achieve self-leadership mastery and personal wellbeing. The key objectives are to achieve self- and social awareness, and to build insights and agility to regulate and manage our intra/interpersonal experiences. Through my research and applied practice, I continually find evidence that articulating our unexpressed intentions and roles empowers the client to be conscious, to be congruent, and to model being an authentic and resonant leader, both in their work and life contexts.
My Coaching Approach acknowledges the organisational system and encompasses ontological and depth coaching – this is explored via neuroscience, systems psychodynamics, the enneagram, mindfulness, narrative and positive psychology methods and models. I provide a practical approach that supports the client to recognise and resonate with (‘get’) how their thinking, feelings, and behaviours impact their world. The previously hidden relational dynamics with others emerge and are now made explicit.
I am a member of the following Professional Associations: HPCSA-registered psychologist, COMENSA, ISCP, and SIOPSA. I am active on professional-association executive committees – past SIOPSA Exco and IGCCP Chair, currently on SIOPSA’s IGCCP Exco.
As a practitioner, I enjoy working with individuals, with organisational coaching panels, conducting research, continual learning, and teaching. I have published a research chapter in a scientific peer-reviewed coaching-psychology book. I also present my research and have been a panellist at local and international conferences, and I facilitate coach-training workshops for psychology professionals who coach. My coaching clients include private and professional individuals, and middle- to executive leader-managers and teams.

AREA/TYPE OF COACHING PRACTICE:
I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology and a PhD from the University of the Witwatersrand. The title of my PhD is “The contribution made by coaching to MBA leadership development at a South African business school”.
My knowledge of coaching has grown and developed over the past twenty years through academic studies, course development at the Wits Business School and practical experience. In 2007 I developed the “Effective Coaching” course together with a colleague. I developed the Certificate Programme in Leadership Coaching (CPLC) for the MBA Alumni in 2009. The course was designed to provide trained coaches for the MBA students’ “Leadership Coaching Programme” that I developed the same year. I taught, supervised and directed these two programme from 2009 to 2017.
I gained in-depth knowledge of coaching through writing my PhD. I used this knowledge to develop and teach two courses on the Masters in Business and Executive Coaching (MMBEC): “Psychological Acumen Underpinning Coaching” and “Leadership in Organisations”.
In my twenty years at the WBS I provided career coaching for over 550 post-graduate students. I also had more than 20 private coaching clients during this time.
Theoretical Perspectives, Models and Methodologies
My approach to coaching is based on humanistic psychology. I view coaching as a collaborative partnership between coach and coaching client where the role of the coach is to support and facilitate the coaching client’s learning and development.
