Our Coaches

MindShape is the brainchild of a unique mother-daughter coaching-duo.  We boast various skill sets and complimenting accreditations between our coaches.  And yes, we’ve heard it before and we disagree.  We say that working with family is what you make of it.  For us it’s an opportunity to drink plenty of cappuccinos (for Chrisna) and americanos (for Christa), to develop exciting new content and share our unique experiences and successes with our clients to help build great lives.  

At MindShape we value connections and make time to deeply connect with our clients, whether it be over a coffee with one client, or in training a group of clients.  Although MindShape is a home-grown company, our reach extends into the global community and we also love virtual coffee dates with our online coaching clients.  MindShape’s offer a wide variety of unique tools and services. Why don’t you head over to our Services Page to have a look? Or, better yet, get in touch and lets’s grab coffee and chat.

Our Values & Beliefs

Thrive, not just survive

This is probably the single biggest driving factor for us at MindShape and what gets us out of bed in the morning. Encouraging and empowering people to live a life worth living has become part of what makes us thrive.  We genuinely believe that all people deserve to be happy and live a life of abundance and joy.  The power of happiness and abundance lies with the individual, and we want to help you take back your power.

Intrinsic Potential

All humans have the capacity for growth and the potential to be great.  We often use the analogy of the human mind as a high-functioning, super-machine.  If you program it correctly, it’ll produce what you want.  The potential is there; all you need are the skills and knowledge to use it.

Feather-soft, yet soul-deep

Our style of coaching is based on this principle.  We provide the support and the compassion, and our clients add the courage to face the light and shadow-side of their challenges. We’ll never force you to tread where you don’t want to go. However, when you’re ready, we’ll walk with you to your deepest depths. 

Connect with Christa

As the wife of a former fruit farmer and the mother of a risk-loving son and triplet daughters, I am uniquely equipped to deal with life’s drama.  Constantly growing through the different phases and stages of life, I’ve lived and learned to thrive. 

Before I became a professional coach, I’ve gained a wealth of experience in working with people of all ages in the Health, Wellness and Education world.  I find pleasure in guiding and supporting people in navigating life’s challenges and achieving their full potential to become who they are created to be. I will go the extra mile to help them get there.  My heart lies with those who cannot speak out for themselves and those include children – the future of our beautiful country.

I would like to hand you the keys to unlock the hidden entrapments of your mind. This process is gentle and safe. I will provide a non-judgmental environment and guide you in a way that is feather soft, yet soul deep.

Topics that I am passionate about and have unique experiences/successes in, include:

  • Intervention Coaching
  • Mindful Transformation
  • Self-Management through EQ

I am a Certified Neuro-coach, Internationally Certified mBIT Coach, NLP Practitioner, Facilitator and Group Trainer with a B.Sc in Physiotherapy.

 Connect with Chrisna

Coming from the Health and wellness industry with a therapeutic background and a Social Work degree, I have learned beautiful skills and insights that now add depth to my coaching journey.  However, initially, these insights also lead me to ask hard questions, like: “Am I being authentically me?” and “How much bigger and bolder could the Authentic-Me show up in the world?”.    It was only once I started answering these questions that I decided to pursue coaching.

I love working with individuals to help smash their goals and fall in love with living again.   My coaching style is an extension of my personality: a compassionate, yet straightforward-no-BS approach, which makes me a great challenge- and accountability partner.

Know this: Coaching is an investment, not an expense!

The world is all  about smart investments, yet not nearly enough is said on the most important investment you could possibly make – YOU!  Investing in yourself will be the investment you make with the smallest risk and biggest return. Think about it this way:  you are the only asset you can never lose and always have access to.  Wouldn’t it make sense to invest in that one, certain asset to serve you?  We believe it. So do countless successful actors, business people, mega-business directors and influencers and they are reaping the rewards of their investments.
