As a coach...

I seek to co-collaborate to extract meaning, symbolism and direction by understanding the triggers of past programming and self-beliefs.

I am privileged to help others on their soul journey, a journey of wanting to be more – more of whatever that is for THEM – an entrepreneur, a mother, a man or woman at a crossroads in life, a speaker, a writer, an igniting of a new journey.

I seek to help my clients find acceptance in what is rather than clinging to an idealised hope of life as it should be and in that acceptance comes peace and clarity and direction.

I am inspired in my coaching to help young entrepreneurs in South Africa believe in themselves and to grow their dreams, alongside the challenges they face.

Through my coaching, I pay tribute to one of my clients, Sabelo Zondo, who passed away on 28 January 2019. Sabelo worked for our manufacturing company for 18 years before he started his own company called Straight Line Paving. Sabelo wrote this about how coaching helped him believe in himself.

“Alison helped me learn the importance of self-confidence, and on how to gain trust from my clients when selling my services. Before working with Alison I could not even hold a proper conversation with clients, but that has changed. This is reflected in the growth of my business and the referrals and appreciation I get from my clients. I have learnt so much in this new entrepreneurial journey and above all, I have found myself.” – Sabelo Zondo

Sabelo tragically passed away in 2019, but I lived to see him fulfil his dream and that is what drives my passion for coaching and for speaking.

"Listening to connect is the most powerful tool for activating the part of the brain that enables growth and who we’ll become next."

My specialities.

The main focus of my coaching and speaking.

Women in entrepreneurship

The feminine energy that is re-writing the entrepreneurial scripts of the modern age are incredible inspiring and valuable, hence my commitment to work with and empower women in entrepreneurship.

Working through transitions

Experiences of adversity offer unique opportunities to grow and take advantage of valuable changes that often seem hidden amidst the adversities.

Active ageing

Ageing is not necessarily a time of happiness for everyone, however, we believe it is possible to draw on the study of epigenetics to live a full life in the third chapter of one's journey.

Growing a legacy

Legacy is not defined by the end of the road, but rather by the moments shared, the decisions made, the actions taken, and even the mistakes overcome throughout the many phases of your life and career.

What we'll explore through coaching.

From the boardroom to the comfort of your own home, my coaching translates across a dynamic range of settings, people and projects.

After a journey following years of study in leadership coaching, personal development, the neuroscience of communication and exposure to world class global speakers, I have engaged in a journey of giving back through active leadership.

I have developed my own unique coaching style over the past few years. I practice a form of deep coaching inspired by the work of Rich Litvin, author of The Prosperous Coach.

This is an interventionist style of coaching, not ongoing systematic-styled coaching. I normally work with clients for intense two hour sessions where we look at the past programming of their beliefs and unlock possibilities for new perspectives and actions.

I work intuitively and co-collaborate creating visual mind-maps to explore curious new layers of understanding. Through unlocking understanding together we unlock a whole new way of ‘seeing’ and thereafter doing. That is the power of coaching as an agent of change.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” - Brené Brown
Testimonials.

Jessica Fish, Designer and Photographer

When I first met Alison I was instantly made to feel comfortable and at ease. I have never received coaching before and this was an exceptional experience. After many years of seeing different psychologists I was left disheartened and lost. Alison's coaching was far more effective and helpful. Her intuitive process made things run smoothly and easier and I was able to connect to her and my own issues at hand. I am eternally grateful to her and her words of encouragement and wisdom. She was willing to share her life so I could understand my own. She is an actual angel on this earth.

Nicole Conway, Medical Industry

When I first met alison I was so drawn to her peacefulness and confidence. She was so cheerful and content. She was oozing all the things that I was lacking and so desperate to find. She was willing to share her journey with me and was willing to help me find myself. After our first consultation we uncovered a lot of baggage that was weighing me down. I finally learned how to let go and forgive the past. She helped me understand why I reacted to certain situations the way I did and how to turn that all around to work in my favour. I don't feel like my emotions control me anymore and I feel like I'm overcoming so much. I'm so grateful for Alison and I'm excited for the journey that I'm on and I'm looking forward to continuing working with her.

Bronwyn Taylor, Engen Franchise Owner and Entrepreneur

When I first met Alison at a gym,I knew it was for a special purpose. We clicked as Alison was a seasoned and inspirational entrepreneur, who was in business with her husband. Alison possessed a wealth of knowledge that she was willing to share with others in a transformative way. She wanted to see others grow and develop to be successful in their businesses, with a balance in their personal and family life. Alison was Real. At a crossroad in my life, Alison assisted me in an empathetic, gentle non-judge mental and honest manner to overcome my deep rooted fears that were impacting on my business and personal life. Alison assisted me to find my compass and direction again. Her personality and her deep process became a luminous lamp for me. I highly recommend Alison as a coach. She is a fountain of inspiration and hope for the past, present and future generations.

Tasha Tollman, Founder of DIY Online Gardening

I consulted Alison during an uncertain time in my life where I felt I was losing direction and my belief in myself was at an all time low. Through listening, question and offering practical insights from her own journey of building up a highly successful company, Alison was quickly able to assess the situation and help me clarify my thoughts. She is part strategist, part thought provoker and part cheerleader and she masterfully evoked each of these roles as she supported and guided me in finding a renewed clarity of purpose. Since our meeting I and my business have grown considerably and I'm nowing living in flow. I'm grateful to have worked with her during a challenging time in my life and I will definitely be consulting with her again!

Amanda Khumalo, Founder of Imbatho Creations

Alison has really been a God-sent angel in my life. She has been a woman that I look up to and is the most giving person I have ever come across. Not only of her time but also her wisdom and knowledge. Looking at my life right now I can say I have conquered, I took that leap of faith. Fear and comfort paralysed me in seeing my true potential. The support I got from Alison was truly amazing, she introduced me to a Fashion and Image Consultant Course that took out the hunger I had in me to follow my passion in fashion design. I have since started a business in Clothing Manufacturing & I am the proud owner of Imbatho Creations. It might not be where I want it to be but it has given me a sense of fulfilment and empowerment... there’s no stopping me now, my journey has just begun.

Katherine Mary Pichulik, Founder, CEO and Global Designer of Pichulik

The coaching I have received from Alison has married the emotional intelligence, managerial experience and self inquiry required to thrive within my personal and business capacity. The questions, combined with the mirroring invited me to self reflect upon patterns and themes that governed my operating mechanism in life. Through this awareness gave me the opportunity to adjust these ways of being and thinking in order to take back my power and choose how I wish to manifest my experience.

Karen Landi, Community Hours

Sometimes when immersed in the daily whirlwind of life, it’s very difficult to see the wood of the trees. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and to feel out of control. To interact with, and experience, the insight and wisdom of a coach is invaluable, especially when it allows you to gain a fresh perspective and see the things that were perhaps there the whole time. Coaching provides different lens and a healthy, balanced outlook. Alison Weihe provided me with fresh insights and perspectives. Coaching has been a tonic - helping me to recharge and revitalise. What an invaluable process. Thank you, Alison.

Cindy Jordaan, Founder of HR & Labour Consulting

Alison Weihe facilitated an amazing growth process for me. She assisted me not only to find short comings in my business but also to find solutions to personal challenges. Her mentoring and coaching skills were of immense value to me. The time we spent were life changing for me. Her empathy and the journeys she has walked in life contributes to a coaching model that is effective, inspiring and that facilitates co-creation of effective solutions. I would recommend her with an open heart.
