Your Coach Disa
I am passionate about helping people discover themselves and reach their true potential in various aspects of their lives. The two areas in which I am most passionate about and coach on are Students and Relationships, whether this is a relationship with yourself or with others. My recent book Unfathered has opened up so many areas in which those who grow up without their fathers need to heal. I am the Relationship Coach to the Unfathered. I help them overcome their challenges and reach their true success.
I'm passionate about Students and Relationships Coaching.
My passion and interest in working with students stems from many years of working and studying at the University of Cape Town where I completed a PhD that focussed on Student Success in 2015. My study brought new insights into how students from ‘educationally disadvantaged’ backgrounds persist and succeed in their studies; and simply, this relates to the Personal Power that is within ALL human beings to choose what to make of their situation and act appropriately.
"Success is a personal choice!"
It is precisely this very simple truth, our inherent Power of choice, that form the foundation for all we do at True Success Institute. The core role of True Success Institute is to help students to discover and utilise this Personal Power to achieve their best possible results!
Be the best you were meant to be!
I also hold a Masters in Engineering Education and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and have studied some Psychology courses at the University of Cape Town. During my time at UCT I worked with many students as a Lecturer, Mentor and I advised many students on how they could improve their experiences of being at university. Many of my former students and mentees often contact me and share their success stories and it is always good to look back and see that ALL they ever needed was someone to believe in them more than they believed in themselves at the time.
We are relational beings and that’s what makes us human. We thrive when we are connected with other people because it is part of how we experience ourselves. Sometimes our relationships with ourselves and with other people experience challenges and this is where a forward-looking relationship coach can help!
Relationship Coaching is NOT Relationship Counselling!
Let’s face it, many of us are held back by our relationship with our parents, whether our fathers or mothers were absent, rejected and abandoned us, or whether our mothers and fathers have said something that harmed us or they were not there to say anything at all, our relationship with our parents go a long way in shaping who we are. Coaching will help you begin to heal these relationships; it will help address your relationship with parents and significant others.
Go on. Invest in having great and successful relationships!
