What others say about working with me…

Barb is a coach with insight, humility and purpose. She is an extremely good listener and customizes her coaching style to your desired end goal. Working with Barb made me reflect more effectively because she gave me tools and ideas that made me think deeper. As a small business owner and HR professional she opened up ideas and avenues I hadn’t thought of. Don’t be fooled by her gentle unassuming demeanour. She is a solid professional who is self-aware and takes note of everything necessary to help you achieve your desired goals.
I highly recommend her services to businesses and entrepreneurs growing their businesses.

I attended a seven-week Positive Intelligence Foundation program which was led by Barbara. Barbara is an excellent coach. She facilitated the weekly group sessions expertly, helping the group to share and reflect on each past week and preparing us for the next week. Barbara has a special skill to make everyone feel safe and allowing us to share without feeling pressure. This amazing program helped me to understand that there are two ways to react to everything: stand in judgement (of oneself, others, or circumstances) or with empathy, curiosity and discernment. It taught me tools to choose the latter. It is a lifelong practice, but the seven-week programme provided a good foundation.

Dr. Barbara van Heerden conducted the Enneagram course with me a last year.

Barbabra was very professional and confident. Her explanations were clear and to the point.

She made me feel comfortable throughout the duration of the sessions and I felt that she knew the area of work and how to teach it effectively.

Dr. van Heerden has to be commended for her insight, people skills and patience.

When I signed up for the Positive Intelligence Program, I was at a very bad space personally. I reluctantly thought, oh well, let’s try it.
I never anticipated that it would provide me with the purpose and joyfulness I so craved.

Yet, within 3 sessions, I did a 180-degree turnaround! My life transitioned slowly , but surely, for the better. I opened up my shell, and the universe became a magic place again!
My husband, family, friends, colleagues all noticed the difference. And with Barbara’s amazing coaching, I now am in the position to be in that magic place on a daily basis.
PLUS, I know exactly how to get into my positive universe.

I have known and respected Barbara for many years as a colleague, but this year she made an enormous difference in my life and future! I would highly recommend her as a coach.
Barbara is super intuitive, a great listener and very talented as a coach. She is a game changer.

You will never look back…………..

I had the great pleasure of being coached by Barbara in the Enneagram course. The knowledge I have gained has changed my perspective on the importance of personalities and relationships in my work and personal life. I would advise anyone who has had issues in the workplace or at home to do this course, it is a definite eye-opener.

I have “known” Barbara for a few years, towards the end of last year, Barbara joined a meeting, smiling, happy and bubbly – at the time, I remember thinking “I want what she is taking!”

Barbara shared her journey regarding positive intelligence with us, the changes it had made to her life, both in the workspace and on a personal level.

For the last 7 weeks I have been part of a Positive Intelligence pod Barbara has been coaching – Barbara really commits to the session and to the Pod members – listens and guides without pre-empting or judgement, giving a different perspective and a new way of looking at things – sage advice!

She has given me the tools to use to make the changes in my own life – ever grateful!
