EQ matters because we are emotional beings. EQ helps us to understand and relate with those around us in an effective way.


My background includes a combination of teaching, mentoring, experiential education and counseling, spanning over twenty-five years. I am an educator and experiential education facilitator by profession. I taught in High School before joining Outward Bound (an international experiential education organization renowned for working with people from all works of life to effect behavioural change). I worked for Outward Bound in Kenya, the U. S. A and South Africa in various capacities for approximately 12 years.

I am currently involved in;

a). Designing, developing and facilitating team building and personal leadership that include EQ concepts e.g. anger and conflict management for organisations.

b). Working with schools to create Emotionally Safe School environments conducive for teaching and learning www.emotionallysafeschools.co.za

c). Organising, managing and leading expeditions up Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya as well as safaris to Eastern and Southern Africa. I have climbed/led over 40 climbs up Mt. Kilimanjaro and over 50 climbs up Mt. Kenya with people from all corners of the world.

d). During school holidays, I volunteer to manage holiday camps for children and youth from previously disadvantaged backgrounds www.camp-bambanani.org. The camps focus on personal development, teamwork, leadership and personal discipline. The camps have been running for the last 10 years and have worked with over 1500 children and youth.
