Facilitation is an art. Having a clear strategy and skill-set for conquering the challenges of group coaching is essential for authentic facilitation.
I have assisted many facilitators and teachers with these skill-sets over the years in a private capacity. After numerous requests to “create a training course which would equip facilitators with these skills“, and 15 years experience in facilitating women's process groups, I am finally ready…. and deeply honoured to be answering this call.
A facilitator training course which will equip you with the skills to create a safe learning environment, understand group dynamics, process facilitation skills, empowering facilitator tools, how to deal with manipulative characters and when to refer, support group etiquette, facilitator ethics and professional conduct.
Utilizing the unique group facilitation tools of:
- The power of story telling,
- The healing benefits of the circle and
- The alchemical journey process.
What is unique about the Catalyst Facilitation Method?
Catalyst facilitation is a unique method which utilizes the hero and heroine’s journey as a structural guideline in facilitating the group process. The method is further enriched by drawing on the ancient healing tradition of the circle, its power of storytelling and the skill of catalytic questioning which ignites change in the direction of heart centered living.
Through out my years in my practice and observing the field of personal development and training, I have noticed that group facilitators; adult educators; and holistic teachers have struggled to facilitate group dynamics. Especially those disruptive characters, like the chatty Cathy’s, the attention seeking Abbie’s and the drama queen Deborah’s. If you are ill equipped, it affects the group experience and your confidence to facilitate process work effectively.
Facilitation challenges covered in the training:
Wielding the gift of being a catalyst; asking the tough questions with compassion.
Dealing with disruptors, distractors, disengaged behaviour, pathological personalities in groups and consequently how their behaviour effects the whole group dynamic.
Supporting participants through the process of transformation in the context of a group environment.
Effectively dealing with ab-reaction during meditative and emotional processes.
Authentic, effective and ethical group coaching methods.
Staying grounded as a facilitator in the midst of disruptive behaviour.
The best teachers are those who show you where to look,
but don’t tell you what to see.

I believe that what our world needs now is a catalyst for change movement.
In order to activate compassionate leadership, re-connection to natural ways of being, redirecting all energy and focus into renewable resources in economics, social entrepreneurship, communities and paradigm shift into heart centered living for all.
I believe that when you educate a woman, you educate a community.
Women are natural educators, networkers, and circle leaders. I believe that woman hold within them the key…. a catalytic essence which leads to:
law-changing campaigns: e.g. women’s rights || new ways of being ||
peaceful resolutions || bringing compassion back into the boardroom ||
& the crucial current activist movement for conservation,
so that the next 7 generations can thrive!
I believe that facilitation as a leadership style and tool is
the way forward for a thriving future.
I wholeheartedly feel that it is women’s clarion call to lead this
eve-olution, & that we were born to do this!
If you are reading this, you know that on some level you are answering the soul-purpose you are here to fulfil. The world needs your uniques gifts - now more than ever.
