DEFINING MY APPROACH

“There is a point of dynamic equilibrium between polarities which holds pure potential. This is the moment where choice is truly free; it is this space I seek with my clients. The nautilus is the manifestation of this principle – it is simultaneously perfectly rational and ridiculously magical. It has sound structural elements but the softness of something ethereal. It is the house and the home, the unique individual and the archetypal template, the masculine and the feminine…it is everything whilst, in its perfect simplicity, it is often mistaken for nothing at all.”   Mae Naude

Veronica Rorich

“Mae is a sensitive and astute psychologist who skilfully unpacks the dream symbols and then masterfully pulls the puzzle pieces together in such a manner that the dream offers alchemical value and relevance to one’s life, well-being and future path”

Berry Gargan

“I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the depth of my dream messages with Mae and unpacking real and useful surprises along the way – even when some of the revelations were uncomfortable or difficult to deal with. Thank you for holding such a clear and safe space for the process of re-telling.”

Linda Hall

“Mae has excellent listening and questioning skills and, together with her ability to integrate complex often nebulous bits of information, is able to offer insights that illuminate the core message of the dream. In addition, she is absolutely trustworthy and non-judgmental making it easy to share intensely personal dreams. I always walk away with deep insights that I would never have reached had I tried to analyse my dream on my own.”

coaching and leadership development

It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it.

 Nelson Mandela

Besides extensive experience in coaching and counselling, her background has equipped her to facilitate and score Group Discussions exercises, In-Baskets, Role-plays and Resource-based interviews, and to assimilate the findings, together with those of traditional psychometric tests, into integrated feedback.

Furthermore, she is skilled in using these integrated findings as a base from which to build authentic, frank and significant coaching journeys for her clients.

Over the years she gained substantial experience in both selection and developmental assessments and her background in business together with her experience in the fields of assessment, coaching and learning enable her to contribute meaningfully to the development of talent.

Having advised on the White Lion Leadership Academy program from its foundational stages, she also offers depth workshops and individual one-on-one sessions for emerging leaders of all echelons and all ages.

Lizaene Cornwall

“Mae helped me to reach deep inside and find what and how I want the world to see me. She helped me to realise that it is perfectly fine to “use” your negative past to show your growth and to show who you have become. Thank you Mae!”

Cathrine S Nyquist

“After an in-depth conversation with Mae I gained such clarity and insight about who I am, what has defined me, and what leadership role I am willing to take on! Her guidance, wisdom and insight is astonishing, and thanks to her, my “signature” story is just under 30 seconds! I cherish the conversations we had.”

Tshegofatso Nkanyiso Makwe

“Mae has the astonishing ability of making life’s confusions seem clear – I believe that everyone deserves a Mae experience.”

Linda Tucker

“Focused, smart, ruthlessly precise and deeply encouraging, I won’t consider writing another book without the benefit of this caliber of depth critique and structural edit. It turned lead into gold.”

Brad Laughlin

“Mae’s brilliant insights shaped and improved my book in ways I never could have imagined. Finding common threads in my stories, which I had not even seen myself, she helped me to weave a more meaningful, impactful narrative, tying many themes together as a holistic tapestry. She is a masterful midwife of books, and I don’t plan to write another book without her.”

Christine McDonald

“I loved working with Mae. She added the perfect content I needed to add more depth and meaning to my book.”
