In her coaching, Nobantu follows the agenda of the client. Through probing questions and sharing just-in-time observations, she takes clients deep and helps them to identify their blind spots and embrace their shadows. Clients go deeper into the sub-conscious and unconscious levels and dance with what emerges. She mostly evokes awareness in her clients through raising somatic awareness and somatic experiencing. She provides a safe and open space for the coachees to do their work, focusing on unexplored territories. She moves on a continuum of being non-directive to directive depending on what is missing in the client’s system. As a Mindfulness practitioner and teacher she supports her clients in integrating the head, heart, instinctual and spiritual intelligence. She does amazing heart work with clients based on the principles of UBUNTU “I am because We Are. In coaching, Nobantu focuses on the HEART and surfaces the HEART of the matter.
