Hi, I’m Brenda.

I’m a compassionate and solutions-oriented psychologist and coach. I love what I do.

The core goal of my coaching and counselling is to support the growth of inner potential, self-realization, and the development of a sense of meaning.

I’m a graduate of the University of Nairobi. I have over 6 years and 3,000 hours of experience delivering counselling and coaching. I work on behalf of organizations and through my social enterprise, Sharp Perceptions.

I’m based in Kenya and deliver coaching and counselling both in person and online. I believe in the ability of everyone to be global citizens by using the internet and social media.

I’m an engaged and passionate community member

I’m a freethinker, feminist and passionate humanist who loves to converse, laugh and connect with others. Some of my most meaningful moments and relationships have arisen from my engagement with:

Freethinkers Association Kenya (FIKA) – Secretary

Kenya Psychology Network (KPN) – Co-founder

Kenya Vipassana Association

Wadada – reggae collective

I am known for sharing stories

My personal blog shares some experiences in my life that made me the person I am today. I also share advocacy about mental health issues.
