Alex van Oostveen ESIA, EIA Senior Practitioner, ICF PCC. Coach | Supervisor | Mentor Coach
Using a relational approach supported by psychological frameworks, I partner with leaders and executive coaches to problem-solve more effectively, in the spheres of systems, relationships, tasks, and self. I support people on journeys to deeper awareness of themselves and their relationships with the important themes in their lives. Supervision clients include coaching psychologists, executive coaches, personal coaches, and coaches in the corporate and educational sectors. I mentor ICF coaches working to attain an initial or renewed credential, from ACC to PCC level. My background is in military helicopter flight and advanced flight instruction. I had the privilege of flying as both wingman and leader of the South African Air Force’s formation aerobatic team for 4 years. I learned to navigate unique leadership challenges, effective communication and potent relationships within complex, high-risk, and dynamic environments.
