Trisha Portraits _0033.jpg


with Trisha Lord

Despite their best intentions, parents are often responsible for eroding the confidence of their children to think for themselves. In an effort to safeguard their children from mistakes, parents focus on instructing, lecturing and controlling their children instead of encouraging them to think for themselves.

Add to this the failure of most educational systems and structures to truly champion the fully independent thinking of students, in favour of “right answers” and conformity, and it is not surprising that many of us have lost faith in our ability to generate our own best ideas to create the lives that we want.

Thinking Partners are people who are able to offer a quality of attention that ignites courageous thinking.  Attention of this nature is catalytic – it enables the human mind to reclaim its ability for independence, for flair, for insight and creativity.

A Thinking Session is a time in which a person can think for themselves, fully, with confidence and grace. During Thinking Sessions, the trajectory of fully independent thinking is fuelled so that a person can move beyond internalised limiting assumptions to generate new ideas and solutions, thereby releasing their innate capacity for courage and growth.

If you would like to book a Thinking Session with Trisha, please email us and we will be in touch to schedule a suitable time.

What People Are Saying

It’s amazing how I left feeling connected and friends with each one of you.
It’s a good reminder on the power of listening, sharing, and being vulnerable.
Thank you for the transformational few days spent together.
Memories I will always cherish.

I personally found the workshop transformation. Trisha created an incredible learning environment, her knowledge is wide and deep! She embodies a Thinking Environment. I know that I will be a better person for having attended the 2 days and I am looking forward to learning more.

Julia Makhubela

It was indeed a transformational 2 days. Walked into the office with ease this morning despite a long to do list!

Words are not enough to explain the transformational effect I experienced from attending the two days of Time to Think. Trisha delivered the training with so much ease, reminding all of us to tap into the gift of thinking for ourselves which we are all born with. I now know that the best gift that I can give myself is to create a thinking environment for myself. The training is the best investment I have made to myself this year.

The foundation course was beautifully facilitated by Trisha, it was just the right balance between practice and content delivery.  I found the practice sessions very valuable as it allowed the participants to experience what it’s like to be in a thinking environment.  I was surprised at the impact of generative listening.  It’s an experience that I will be able to access every time when I need to provide my full attention to others.

On a serious note thank you everyone for giving me hope in such tough times. You restore my faith in humanity and how we can look forward to connecting and learning and growing while enjoying the process.

Many thanks to the creator and facilitator Trisha.
