Nominated for Most Admired Business & Leadership Coach 2020 Awarded Most Reliable Leader in Logistics & Supply Chain 2020 by Global Brands Magazine

Johan Slabbert Transpersonal Coaching provides coaching services to a wide range of clients from all industry sectors across the globe. Coaching sessions are predominantly offered in nature-based retreats, but are also held either in person (place-based) or online (using Zoom or Skype).

My in-depth understanding of the link between organisational excellence and employee behaviour has been acquired over more than three decades. This expertise is underpinned by academic qualifications and a significant amount of practical experience in coaching and spiritual accompaniment. This allows me to support people on an intellectual, emotional and spiritual level, enabling them to cope with uncertainty in an ever-changing environment.

My first encounter with silence was as a young girl growing up in the Namib desert.  It was a profound encounter with the Infinite within and shaped me in ways that I’m still discovering today. 

My formative years were spent in the desert living in isolated international communities.  My childhood was filled with colour as I grew up in these international communities with a distinct South African flavour interwoven with silence – solitude.

I completed the 2-year Spiritual Direction and Formation Training with the Western Cape Partnership for Spiritual Direction Training in November 2019.  Spiritual Accompaniment formation is an ongoing journey, living a prayerful and reflective life attentive to my own spiritual growth which includes ongoing spiritual direction and supervision.  

A God who is intimately active and present in our everyday lives, and can be found in all things, the elements of Ignatian Spirituality opened up a new world of encounter with God, myself, others and nature.  It is my joy to accompany people on their own journeys as they navigate their everyday lives, coming alongside to listen together for a time, holding the space with open hands as this place of encounter is holy ground.
