Hello, my name is Nina...
B. App. Soc. Sci.
Dip. Couns. & Comm.
Divorce & Family Mediator
I am a remarried mother of two grown boys. Originally from Cape Town, I now live in the desert in a remote diamond mining town in Namibia. When I am not coaching or furthering my studies, I am exploring the nearby dunes with my rottweiler Baloo. During weekends and holidays my husband and I can be found riding the dirt roads on our motorbikes, camping in the desert, or tracking down animals and sunsets for beautiful photos. I know I have to start sharing these photos to an Instagram account soon...
I come from a mental health background of counselling and mediation. My work experience includes running an EAP business, mediating in private practice, at Cape Town Children's Court and in NPOs. I have facilitated multiple workshops for in both the corporates and non profit sector. My favourite workshop to facilitate has always been conflict resolution skills.
I am a published author. My first book was published in 2010 and my second book is hovering somewhere out there.
By overcoming what at the time felt like unsurmountable conflict in my life, I found that that place of conflict was actually my greatest learning experience and place of growth.
Today I have come to view all conflict as an opportunity for learning and growth, and assist my clients to do the same.
