Carlien Kahl

I created Inspireck (Pty) Ltd to facilitate integrated achievement.  Optimizing development occurs within and across different levels and systems (individual, family, education, workplace, community, etc.). Integration requires facilitation towards and access to appropriate resources.

I facilitate these processes through educational kinesiology using neuro-integration movements from Brain Gym® for successful goal-directed experiences. I also make use of LEGO Education® products as a tangible fun learning engagement.

In my capacity as a researcher, I  am involved in qualitative research and provide customised training in qualitative methodologies for conducting and analysing qualitative research, as well as optimising these phases for mixed-methods integration. As an accredited Senior Professional Trainer I use and show fellow researchers how to facilitate analysis through ATLAS.ti – a powerful qualitative computer-assisted analysis tool.


Carlien Kahl is a qualified research psychologist (PS 0126020), engaged in community research and well-being. She offers a range of research and educational support services to facilitate individuals, families, groups, and companies to achieve self-directed optimal learning and achievement. Support includes individual consultations, training sessions, and workshops.
