Tessa Whyatt

Leadership Coach and clinical psychologist/ Art therapy specialist

Tessa started her career as a Clinical therapist and has 15 years of experience with individuals and groups. She added coaching in 2013, working with individuals and teams. She enjoys facilitating Time To Think, as well as designing and implementing leadership and self-mastery workshops.


Tessa has coached graduates and new managers, entrepreneurs and team leaders, managers and executives, private professionals and teams. She has taught Time To Think on Executive Education Programmes being delivered by business schools and/or Grey Matters Leadership Development, Coaching and Consulting.


Tessa’s super power is making each individual feel that they are her only client! She takes time to truly care and engage with each person, to motivate and support growth, hold accountability, and celebrate successes.

Tessa’s coaching speciality is in resilience, wellness, and health – mental, physical and emotional. She enjoys helping clients identify their strengths and develop self-leadership. She has an abundance of empathy and is sometimes known as a “Therapeutic Coach”. Tessa uses unique and, at times, eclectic methods. She believes that different tools allow new paths and perspectives to emerge, to support change, overcome blocks, and create liberating shifts. Her main aim in coaching is to help people reach their potential and to thrive!

Based in Cape Town, Tessa has a keen interest in positivity, breathwork, mindfulness, gratitude and creative practices.

On a personal level, Tessa values integrity and perseverance. She is hard working and organized, and passionate about working with people. In addition to coaching adults, Tessa consults with NGOs and she designed a program for adolescents to reduce school dropout. She also co-owns a family business. Tessa continually strives for a good work-life balance to enjoy her career, family and self-care.
