"Transformation is an evolutionary process that we deeply feel and experience. Once it occurs, we move beyond just understanding it intellectually to fully and sustainably living the change. We embody a rooted version of our authentic self, with acceptance and clarity that transcends our past. This shift is such, that even under pressure or when very relaxed, we do not unconsciously revert to our old ways. Such transformation can occur multiple times in our lives." Lutz Otto


"Believing that vulnerability is unsafe is at its best a basic defense, and in reality, an illusion. Our psychological and physiological makeup, our humanness, makes each of us vulnerable, whether we would like to believe it or not. The vulnerability and courage of doing the work necessary to find and show our truth far outweighs the lifelong burden of living an inauthentic life." Lutz Otto

Integration and finding peace within

The Latin root of “integrare,” means to make whole. Integration is defined as the process of effectively combining two or more parts.

"The integration and acceptance of our totality - our successes, failures, life experiences, upbringing, intergenerational content, and the aspects of ourselves that we shut out, compare to others, or fear will exclude us from belonging - is necessary for us to feel grounded in our self-worth.
The more that we integrate all of who we are; the more we can make conscious decisions, live with greater well-being, improve the quality of our relationships, increase our success in life, come to live in the fullness of who we are, and feel peace within. This is my wish for everyone I am privileged to work with." Lutz Otto

Personal And Executive Coaching

Our time together can act as a catalyst for change and a powerful platform for understanding what goes on inside your mind, your  behaviour and your relationships. My coaching practice combines executive, personal [life] and leadership coaching. I work with clients in South Africa, Europe, the UK, and the USA, conducting sessions in person, either indoors or outdoors in nature, as well as through online video conferencing.  

That which I create a safe and supportive space for my clients includes:

  • Building self-worth, self-confidence, self-acceptance and/ or self-compassion. Working through unhelpful thinking patterns and self-limiting beliefs, and subsequently building new ways. Cultivating deeper self and other awareness. Enabling personal agency.

  • Executive and leadership coaching focused on developing sustainable, holistic, conscious, deliberate, effective, and authentic leadership capability. Understanding intrinsic motivation, building aligned teams, and accelerating performance. Transitioning into new work roles and managing ourselves in our work contexts.

  • Better understanding emotions, and how all human drives, are alive to a dynamic interaction between feelings, cognition, and behaviour. This includes identification, regulation, and agility with emotions.

  • Developing a deeper awareness of how unconscious cognition directly drives us. Building new ways of being after identifying patterns, defences, resistances, biases, attachment style, interaction roles, and root causes.​

  • Making conscious choices. Defining goals and values. Reframing perspectives.

  • Working through transitions. Navigating new life phases, whilst integrating your past with where you are now. Moving through the uncertainty, fear, fragmentation, and disconnection we can feel when working through change or difficult life stages. 

  • Exploring meaning and purpose. Exploring identity or who we are. 

  • Moving forward with the integration of that which was discovered or learned on a well-being, healing, or self-development retreat. 

  • Building well-being practices, increasing resilience, and living with deeper harmonious meaning.
