Larissa is a self declared “learning junkie”. She has extensive training and experience in working with individuals, groups and teams and facilitating their reflective practice, learning, growth and development. She also has the awareness and ability to recognize and adapt for diverse coaching and learning styles; all key components of a good Super-visor. She keeps current with new developments in the field of Coaching and Coaching Supervision, and engages in regular Super-vision herself.
She has a very warm, compassionate and humourous approach to her work, building trust and rapport deeply and quickly. She is also able to be (and create the space for others to be) vulnerable; approaching her engagements as a partnership of equals.
Working in large educational and governmental organizations as well as with emerging leaders, entrepreneurs and start ups has given her a good grounding of corporate life and organizational systems and the ability to take a systemic lens.
Having lived and worked overseas for over 15 years has also developed her intercultural skills. Larissa helps clients to link the intrapersonal, interpersonal and systemic factors affecting client performance. Her work provides a safe and open space for self-challenge and experimentation.
Her approach enables ethical or unprocessed emotional issues to be identified, raised and processed safely so that they can become resources for future benefit; this enables new insights, the synthesis of competing ideas and logics, and helps supervisees to make the shifts in themselves that will help their clients and the systems to which they belong-be that personal or professional.
Larissa is able to use a large range of models and tools, but she also knows that people and Coaching is more nuanced and complex than any theory or tool, and recognises that frameworks are just frameworks. She can suggest or put aside methods to enable flexibility of framing and to allow new frames to emerge.
