Working with Sharon has been life changing to say the least. So many breakthroughs to speak of, the main one being the lies that I believed that controlled my being, relationships & outcomes in my life. I took the deep dive and did the deep work, the freedom I gained was life changing. I have learned to love all of myself which shows in the way I live, love and lead. My journey started with me, then I brought my nearest and dearest in and now my corporate team. The shifts all round have been incredible.

Having engaged with different personal development approaches in previous years, the experience with WAI has been the first to bring about lasting positive transformation. With a practical and intuitive approach, Sharon moves way beyond teaching an understanding of behaviour, or merely working with outcomes and symptoms of experiences.
I highly recommend WAI – I am living proof of its empowering outcomes.

Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching is having a thinking partner for the journey of self-discovery where you take full responsibility for your life and maximize your potential

Our coaching engagements usually start with a SEI (EQ Assessment) so we can accelerate your growth pathway. Sessions range from 60 to 90 minute sessions.

Children & Teens

For children and teens I offer the SEI-YV (Social Emotional Intelligence Assessment -Youth Version) and Brain Style assessments. A parent’s perceptive assessment can also be done for children under the age of 10.

I start by understanding the needs of the individual, be it the parent or the child. Emphasis is given to strengths and these are used to address individual challenges.

A safe and fun environment is created where individuals feel heard and supported and a relationship of trust is established. Practical tools are given to support any required change.


There are various levels of engagement I have with parents,

Parent to parent
Parent to child
Child to parent

We identify the need and usually start with a Tall Trees Parenting Profile together with the Tall Trees Adult and Teenager/Kids profile to bring understanding of the uniqueness in each one’s personality style.

We then have the option (depending on the need) to incorporate the Six Seconds SEI Leadership Assessment for both adult and Youth. This determines our pathway moving forward. Provides beautiful open discussion and brings immense understanding.

A safe and fun environment is always provided when coaching or facilitating a workshop appropriate to the needs.
