Most recently, Angelique works as a Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Worker, as well as a Relocation and Wellbeing Coach. Her role as a Relocation and Wellbeing Coach has been largely driven by her own personal journey, when having had to make the decision to officially leave South Africa to England. As such, Relocation Coaching is particularly beneficial during times of transition and change. Relocation Coaching supports you and your family as you prepare for and adjust to your new circumstances in a new country.

Angelique believes that each situation and person is unique. She favours a person-centric approach and believes that conversation is imperative in understanding the realities of others. No one-size-fits-all-approach is followed, as each person’s life and work experiences, goals, talents, likes, dislikes, passions, and personalities are different. She therefore coaches from a positive psychological stance, aiming to focus on what already works for you. Angelique is very passionate in seeing people optimise their wellbeing and supports you through a process of thought-provoking questions. She therefore hopes to bring this passion and energy into her coaching sessions, with the vision to dispense encouragement, hope and growth in improving mental health and wellbeing in the community.
