Speaker Bio

Barbara Kamba-Nyathi™️ is a psychotherapist, lifestyle and wellness coach, inspirational speaker, best selling author, mediator, child and sport psychologist.  She is the founder and CEO of Bold Dialogue, an organisation that aims to empower, inspire and guide women to become the best versions of themselves, and the editor of Bold Dialogue magazine.  Barbara is a Tony Elumelu Foundation alumni, Cherie Blair Foundation alumni, Namibia FlyingLabs in-house psychotherapist and interim director. She is also the country chapter head for First Class On Your Becoming for both Namibia and Zimbabwe, and a two times TEDx speaker.

Bold Dialogue creates an atmosphere of healing, transformation and growth. In addition to bringing women together to support, mentor, and encourage one another, Bold Dialogue hosts vision boarding workshops that enable women to bring their dreams to life, and presents master classes on various topics that enable women to rise above their circumstances. Through its online activities, the organisation engages with women across the African continent.  Bold Dialogue also offers coaching and mentorship services, and publishes a newsletter that empowers women from the bedroom to the boardroom.

Barbara, who hails from Zimbabwe, is passionate about accompanying women along their healing journeys, guiding and coaching them towards emotional freedom. She is a woman who knows emotional pain too well, but has learned to work through life’s darkest storms and emerge stronger and more purpose-driven than ever before. She has survived cervical cancer, endometriosis, a hysterectomy, a divorce, abuse and also lives with an autoimmune disease. Barbara relates to women from all walks of life, experiencing various struggles. She understands what it is to be stripped of everything you had, and who you thought you were, and then redefine and rebuild your identity according to your own rules.

She’s learned that it is crucial for one to take time to heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Despite living with pain, she wears her scars with pride, constantly sets new milestones, and embraces being different.
