’n Jaar gelede het ek gespartel om kop bo water te hou, met al die eise van ma, huweliksmaat en beroeps vrou, wees. My daaglikse lewe was oorlaai met spanning, vrees, skuldgevoellens en konstante uitputting. Ek het op die randjie van ’n senuwee- ineenstorting gestaan. Alles was vir my oorweldigend. Ek het iewers myself iewers verloor en het nie meer die lewe geniet nie. E, ek het elke dag net probeer oorleef.
Gerda het my gehelp om die waarheid van wie ek is en wat my uniek maak, te sien en te begin aanvaar. Dit het my lewe en die wêereld om my in perspektief begin plaas. Met elke sessie het ek meer en meer vry gekom van vrese en persepsies wat my gevangene gehou het, en wanbalans in my lewe veroorsaak het. Met die leiding, aanmoediging en “accountability” van Gerda, kon ek baie moeilike veranderinge maak en persoonlike doelwittes bereik, wat my lewe (en die van my gesin) radikaal verbeter het.
Vandag is ek baie meer vry en is my lewe meer gebalanseerd. Ek kan met oorgawe mamma en vrou wees, asook my talente en passies uitleef! Baie dankie, Gerda.”

Gerda is a very soft spoken, gentle individual with a fine sense of humour. I have shared with Gerda very intimate details of the conflicts that exist in my life and found her to be absolutely non-judgemental and supportive. At the same time she posed questions so that I was able to cut through emotions to deal with the facts at hand. Her open, friendly and compassionate nature has assisted me through one of the most trying times in my life.”

We met when the world to me was volatile and “deurmekaar” – I felt lost – I needed direction in all aspects of life. Not once did you show any direction, but you helped me find this for myself. You took what was in me already and made some pictures so clear that it was easy to find the way forward. I found balance in my life. Every now and again, I would lose that clarity and direction, but you were always only a follow up meeting away in helping me finding it again.
A feeling of breakthrough and relief is what I experienced after only a few sessions with Gerda. She has a special way which helps you find the deeper reason for your feelings and reactions. She coaches you to find your own solutions. I recommend that anyone going through a challenging time, consult with Gerda.”

During the past two and a half years I have been seeing Gerda. If I look back at where I was emotionally and mentally, when we first started, and see the progress I have made through her coaching, I stand amazed.
I am grateful to have met Gerda. She is truly compassionate and non-judgemental yet professional and goal orientated towards coaching sessions. Though her guidance and accountability, I have made changes in my life that seemed impossible to me at first. I am growing in the process of life and discovering the person I never thought I could be.
