Here's who I am & what I do
Im a certified Strength-Based Coach.
I’m a Coach that works in the field of Positive Psychology making use of the Clifton StrengthsFinder™ Tool as well as the Drive Assessment tool from Engagement Fit.
The youth of today need a tool and a safe space to develop their self awareness. Learning to manage themselves within their Strengths rather than subscribing to the vastly influencing ideologies found in their social and online world that is mostly focused on the negative.
I offer a range of online sessions for you to choose from so as to cater to your needs. For ages 14 - 17 I have a pre-developed Awareness Journey, and for 18+ there is the standard Awareness Session that can make use of the CliftonStrength Assessment or for more career focused outcomes I make use of the DRIVE assessment for ages 18 and older.
Before any coaching, I motivate my clients to do the Clifton StrengthsFinder™ Assessment so that we may have access to their full 34 report or for ages 18 and older I recommend the DRIVE Assessment by Engagement Fit which is career centric. These reports are essential to move into an Awareness Session or Journey because the report forms the basis of the language used during the Awareness phase.
After this is complete we can move into coaching focused sessions surrounding more personalised topics.

It's about investing in what works well.
Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living, focusing on both individual and societal well-being. It studies "positive subjective experience, positive individual traits, and positive institutions...it aims to improve quality of life".
Watch the video by Marcus Buckingham, I think it should give you a good idea.
CliftonStrengths™ Full 34 Assessment
Drive by Engagement Fit
Today, the CliftonStrengthFinder™ Assessment is available in
more than 20 languages and modifiable for individuals with
disabilities. It is appropriate for administration to adolescents and adults
with a reading level of 10th grade or higher. Given that CliftonStrengths feedback
is provided to foster intrapersonal development, comparisons across profiles of individuals is also discouraged – thus, it is not about comparing your talents in sequence value to those of others….it is about understanding your own and understanding the talents of others around you.
Furthermore, the CliftonStrengths assessment is not sensitive to change;
thus, it should not be used a prepost measure of growth.
Your talents are recurring patterns of thinking, feeling and
behaving, and in broad essence, it will not change much over time.
The way you use it, obviously, will change. In other words, redoing this
assessment over time or place will not alter the outcome significantly.
The exact sequence may change but within the clustering of your Top 10,
mid-section and Bottom 5, the results will stay very consistent.
DRIVE by Engagement Fit
EngagementFit: an online platform and assessment tool, rooted in 40 years of
strengths-based psychology and positive psychology, that helps you to understand
