The SOAR Institute has several coaches who have undergone specialised training and qualified as Ontological Coaches. Ontology is the study of human behaviour and our coaches have specialised in becoming the human observer, offering one-on-one personal development coaching, which brings about sustained and profound change within their clients. This coaching style goes way beyond mere performance and achievements for results in individuals or organisations, and fundamentally shifts human behaviour.

Ilana Friedman [email protected]
For Ilana Friedman, the notion that almost every philanthropic endeavour begins with someone experiencing a pivotal life event, became real for her following a life-threatening crime incident in 2003.

Facilitating healing through LOVE – From this love connection comes my ability to serve. My work involves using different methods, multiple in many cases, deep massage therapy (stored energy release), hypnotherapy through regression, the use of medicinal plants, and teacher plants, and of course ontological coaching before, through and after our sessions.

Vivashan Muthan [email protected]
Although Vivashan is a registered professional engineer, who holds an MSc in Industrial Engineering (Wits), BSc Mechanical Engineering (UKZN) and Financial Management certificate (Henley Business School), it was the major shift he experienced while enrolled in an executive coaching programme by the SOAR Institute that led him to pursue qualifying as an Ontological Coach.
Chris De Winnaar [email protected]
I became a coach to step into a place of self-reflection and healing to try and understand this thing that we call the human condition. Within my quest of becoming an ontological coach I became fascinated by the human condition. What fascinated me is not how unique our stories are but how similar we are. I know how much courage it takes to step into a place of self-reflection and expansion. You have my guidance, support and encouragement.
