Sit Down with Mary J Fourie

Financial Planner and Coach equipping you with the tools to create freedom and change so you can fulfil your purpose.

Mary J helps others to think about and plan their money and their life in an integrated, whole-person approach incorporating mind, body, and soul. Her gift is to inspire change-making; helping  individuals shift the way that they earn and spend their money to align with what feels most purposeful and meaningful to them.

Mary J has completed two NQF5 Higher Certificate’s in Financial Planning obtained from Milpark Business School as well as a Leadership & Coach Training qualification from Star Leadership (Pty) Ltd. She is a Registered Financial Practitioner™ with the Financial Planning Institute Southern Africa (FPI), is credentialled with the International Coach Federation (ICF) as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and is an accredited iEQ9 Enneagram Individual & Team Practitioner. 

Led by her values of freedom created by connection, contribution and response-ability, Mary J believes that the journey to financial freedom is accessible to all when approached with mindfulness and intention. It is this philosophy that filters through all her work, whether working directly with clients or in training Financial Coaches to do the same through The Coach Education Academy, where she serves as Coach Education Director, Facilitator and Mentor Coach.

Introducing

Marguerite Engelbrecht

Financial Planner and Coach partnering with you to rewrite your financial stories and embrace freedom.

Marguerite helps clients re-examine and challenge behaviours which no longer serve them, while co-creating a safe space in which they can learn new strategies, experiment with different approaches, and grow in confidence to effectively manage their resources of time, energy, talents and finances.

Marguerite is a registered Certified Financial Planner® professional with the Financial Planning Institute of South Africa (FPI), a General Tax Practitioner™ member of the South African Institute of Tax Professionals (SAIT), and has obtained the following qualifications: Certificate in Financial Coaching (UFS), Advanced Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning (UFS), Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning (UFS) and BA Hons (Psychology) (UNISA).

From a young age, Marguerite has been fascinated by what makes us tick as humans. Fairly soon into her working career she became intrigued with the possibilities offered by financial planning as a helping profession, and the close connections between spiritual, emotional and financial wellbeing. As an early adopter of fee-based financial planning, she founded LIFE Tax & Financial Planning Consultants CC in 2004 and has been journeying with client towards freedom ever since.
