Gerry van der Walt  Coach | Traveler | Creative

This is a space for inspiration, positivity, purpose, creativity and a healthy dose of humor.   I see myself as someone who can affect positive change, motivate and make a difference while being rooted in my South African upbringing and values.  I believe we need to extract the most fun and value from life and that the power of possibility is something to chase every single day.


My coaching journey with Gerry is one of the most valuable things I have ever done for myself. I experienced a massive paradigm shift in thinking during one of my sessions which has changed the way I speak to myself forever. I am super grateful for my time with Gerry!

I’ve been on two safaris with Gerry. Simply put, he’s the best guide in Africa. Incredibly smart, superb attention to detail, deeply committed to nature, and lots of fun. He’s also one of the best wildlife photographers in the business – and loves to teach. I’m hoping to go on many more adventures led by the amazing Gerry!

I have always worked from the belief that we create our reality through the thoughts we have, the language we use and the actions we take on a daily basis.  In a world that is pulling your attention in all directions, finding these things might seem impossible at times but what if you could recognise and focus on those a-ha moments that will make a practical difference to your life and the way you live it?  Having travelled around the world and having tasted both the highest of highs and lowest of lows that life can throw at me while navigating my way through challenges and successes, failures and amazing memories, let me be a part of your personal journey of growth and change.

Why work with me


Knowing who you are, what you want to do and what you want from life is non-negotiable.  Finding your 'why' is an amazing thing.


The world needs more positivity and the upside of looking for it in your daily life is something most people dramatically underestimate.


Whether in work, relationships, health and wellness and life in general, I believe we can all perform better!


Start your journey to passion, positivity and purpose!
