VERONA ROCHAT SMITH
Managing Director/Executive Coach/Practitioner
Verona Rochat Smith completed a BA degree with English and Psychology majors. She has a post graduate diploma in Higher Education and a Diploma in Personal & Business Financial Management. After careers in teaching, corporate training and managing several successful businesses, she changed course.
As a deeply compassionate and caring person, she wanted to make a difference and help people realise their innate potential. Her passion is human development and specifically what motivates people and enables or prevents them from living the lives they desire. Over the last decade she has furthered her education in complimentary and alternative self-healing. She is qualified as a:
Stress & Trauma Therapist Level 2 TRE Practitioner – trained by founder David Berceli, Clinical Social Worker (PhD)
Master Hypnotherapist – trained by the South African Institute of Hypnosis ( Internationally recognised SAIH)
Parts Therapist – trained by the South African Institute of Hypnosis (Internationally recognised SAIH)
Jikiden Reiki Practitioner – trained by Reiki Master from the Japanese Jikiden Reiki Association
Teacher/Energy Medicine Facilitator – trained by MMS International
She became acutely aware that unresolved emotional issues, subconscious programming, stress and trauma are subtly driving people without their conscious awareness. Her training covered extensive research on the stress response and the effects / impact of stress on the mental, physical and emotional well being of a person. Stress, now recognised as the 21st Century epidemic, has a detrimental effect on health and can cause a person to under-perform in all aspects of life.
Verona opened a private practice and has been running a Wellness Centre for many years, facilitating her clients towards well being through simple self-help tools that yield incredible results as experienced by her clients and herself. As a result of her experience and working with many corporate clients, she developed a unique, highly effective stress management training course that yields profound results. It also came to her attention that many women were experiencing similar, frustrating challenges that prevented them from realising their full potential. Subsequently, she and her colleagues, Claudine and Pam, have developed a course to empower women.
Verona’s passion and commitment is to introduce these simple self-help methods to the corporate environment and women’s groups, in order to create a win win situation for both employers and employees, as well as empowering women along the way. She believes that companies have a moral obligation to address the occupational health and well being of their employees in order to have happy, high performing and effective people in the organisation. Verona realises evidence is growing that gender equity is not just politically correct window-dressing, but good business. Her beliefs were proven through a company-wide study which found that those with equal number of women and men in management roles delivered profits more consistently than those dominated by men.
