I am a Lesotho born South African and was raised in a multi-cultural setting where I attended an international school in Maseru, Lesotho.
I went on to study for a Social Science degree at Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape, a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Cape Town and a Certificate in Mindfulness Based Interventions at Stellenbosch University.
I am an independent consultant, drawing heavily on my unique perspectives borne of my identities as a black woman, mother, mental health practitioner and anti-racism educator. The unique intersection of these identities informs and influences my diversity and inclusion facilitation, mindfulness-based coaching, as well as add to the professional development and supervision of therapists, coaches and counsellors who are interested in centering race, gender, class, religion etc. in their work with clients.
My work is steeped in advancing social justice for my community with a foundational, deep desire to leave the world a better place.
I am a partner at the consultancy Rosa Burns Ntsekhe, working with a wide spectrum of global and local clients, as well as local independent and public schools in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
I am an associate consultant at the Inspirational Development Group – an organisation that facilitates individual and organisational behaviour change within corporate institutions.
I also volunteer and do philanthropic work in the education sector where I currently have the following roles:
- Chairperson of the board of trustees for Shine Literacy, an NGO addressing the legacy of poor literacy levels amongst South African children.
- Advisory board member for Students for a Better Future, a foundation that ensures individuals with academic ability and financial need have access to quality education.
- Parent member of the School Governing Board at Westerford High School in Cape Town.
I currently live in Cape Town, South Africa with my husband and two children.
