13/09/2018 11AM | GUEST | Desiree Joule-Adam


Nyasha was born in a rural village in Zimbabwe and come over to the UK in the 1970’s.  Nyasha finished her A levels and gained a degree in Chemistry from Lambeth Women in Mind and then enrolled to do a PhD at Imperial College, London. Realising solid chemistry wasn’t her passion she enrolled and completed Gestalt Therapy and Contribution Training at Pellin Institute and 5 years later gained an MA in Therapeutic Childcare from Reading University so she could work with adults and children with emotional issues. Nyasha is a qualified psychotherapist, social worker, coach and mentor. As a black African woman, Nyasha faced discrimination throughout her journey but with sheer determination and passion she developed a successful social enterprise.



Nyasha’s vision for the future is to make global connections and to mentor social entrepreneurs through a social impact investment fund, which will help people, especially women, to reach economic independence through enterprise.

Nyasha wrote a book in 2015 after walking the length of the River Thames (206 miles) “Walk with Me through 16 Inspirational Business and Life Tips”. This was then followed with a 225km walk across Zimbabwe in June 2017 and more recently completed the Stepping Stones 114 mile walk through the Channel Islands over the course of 10 days in June this year, raising funds and awareness for the charity Vana Trust.  Nyasha is also in the process of writing her book “I’m not just a foster carer”.

Nyasha has a husband Paul, three adult children and one grandson. Nyasha has also volunteered for a number of organisations and won a variety of business and community awards. She enjoys walking and reading and her passion in life is helping children to reach their best potential.
