About this pro

** Life Coaching, Mindfulness, Resillience and Inner Child Work
** Boldly standing for resilient change, I create opportunities for individuals to see their life from both their child self to their highest self. I incorporate transformational and action-oriented techniques that immediately improve the individual’s quality of life. Opportunities exist to tell your story in an affirming and non-judgmental safe space.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Community and Human Services and a Master’s Degree in Education. My mission is to inspire generations of resilience from wombs to classrooms by providing social-emotional coaching and mentoring. My work examines the lifetime impact childhood stress and adversity has on the individual. My coaching philosophy is rooted in Re-evaluation Counseling, SOW Leadership Development, Landmark Education and Trauma-Informed teachings. I have been teaching for 20 years and coaching for 10.

As a coach you will find that:
- I am an excellent listener;
- I encourage emotional processing;
- I acknowledge the child within;
- I allow the client to move beyond their protective ego;
- I create space for the higher self to be heard

Other Resilience Specialities: Women's Sacred Red Tent Talks; Puberty Education; Mindfulness; Re-parenting (for the seasoned parent); Resilient Life Coaching.

Technology Services: Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher; Adobe Illustrator

Watching the 'Aha' moments line up as a person realizes their unique 'super powers'.

    Kinyofu Mlimwengu is a masterful coach who uses a holistic, person-centered approach to her work with her clients. She is a deep listener and integrates her intellectual and intuitive abilities when working with others to support them with manifesting their goals and directives. Kinyofu is patient, concise and detailed in her coaching practice and this posture helps to ground and guide her clients so that they have a solid and consistent structure to rely on as they do the work that they are committed to doing.

    Coach Kinyofu is kind, wise and honest. Her guidance was an essential part of my growth and development journey. I especially appreciated Kinyofu's willingness to share about herself and her story as she helped me develop and transform mine. Kinyofu's transparency and openness allowed me to both experience her deeply as a coach as well as learn through her sharing. Thank you, coach Kinyofu for your sage advice and guidance!

  • Robin Schlenger

    Kinyofu has a kind and gentle spirit. Her ability to hold compassion and to lovingly challenge at the same time are a true gift. Even when I was being most challenged by her, I always felt cared for and supported. I have indeed evolved due to my work and relationship with Kinyofu.

    Kinyofu is an amazing coach!! She is a great listener and and motivator!! I accomplished so many goals and tasks , both large and small as a result of Kinyofu’s coaching. Her insights and methods are powerful. To this day, I still reflect on our conversations and coaching to get me over the hump when I’m stuck or procrastinating!! I use one gem she gave me daily: progress, not perfection! You won’t regret working with her!! Get ready for your life and productivity to change!!!
