Nobantu follows the agenda of the client in her coaching. 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. They go deeper into the subconscious and unconscious levels and dance with what emerges. She provides a safe and open space to focus on unexplored territories.
She moves on a continuum of being non-directive to directive depending on what is missing in the client’s system. She uses mindfulness practices in her facilitation.
