My name is Hendrika Jooste.
My husband, daughter and I emigrated from South Africa in 2006 and we have lived in France, the United Kingdom, and Australia since we started on our life-changing migration journey.
My lived experience of international relocations and migration, international business travel, my professional and volunteering experience as well as my formal education, makes your journey not only relatable to me, but I am also in a very good position to provide the best support and coaching to understand your potential struggles. In fact, I believe that is the reason why my clients call me the "immigrant whisperer".
Both my grandparents and my parents were in helping professions - school principals, special education teachers and my father, a psychologist. They shaped, nurtured, and developed my natural aptitude for supporting people. Since 2006, I have been assisting migrants and refugees either part- or full-time through various charitable and community organisations. I am fluent in two languages, Afrikaans and English, and I provide coaching in both languages.
I am a professional Master Certified Life Coach and my educational background includes:
I am the co-author and author of books such as:
