I specialise in career transition coaching and train other coaches to use the Firework career change process. Over the past 13 years I've worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds, including:
- 30 and 40 somethings who feel their current work isn't what they want to do until they retire;
- women with young families who want work that fits better with the rest of their life;
- 20 somethings who have fallen into work that they know isn't the right match for them; and
- people of all ages who want to feel they're doing something more purposeful than their current job.
I also work with people who want to get a promotion, who have recently moved from management to leadership or who want to improve any aspect of their current work. And I do general life coaching, helping people to find a way forward with anything, from a relationship issue to improving their confidence and generally living a happier life.
I coach across the management spectrum and enjoy engaging with those in line for promotion or who have just been promoted. I have coached senior leaders in schools.
With many year's experience of Government service and having navigated my way through career transition, I have a deep interest in helping and supporting all individuals leaving the Armed Forces, Police, Civil Service and other uniformed services.
I am interested in personal and professional career development and change. My style is authentic, engaging, non-judgemental and totally supportive. With a focus entirely on the individual, I will encourage but also challenge appropriately when it is needed. My interest is my clients' interest.
I support clients during major transitions in their life, and guide them to follow their inner compass. We look at making changes from the inside out: If offer career change expertise as well as during any form of personal transition. As all parts of our lives are connected we'll deep dive into all areas of life.
I'll support you on your journey to
- reconnect with yourself
- identify and release inner blocks
- deepen your learning about yourself
- discover what really matters to you
- and to create the life you aspire to
I offer coaching sessions in English and German.
I am available to coach individuals looking to clarify the next step in their professional or personal path. I specialise in
- Cultural issues -- expats, multiculturals, international careers
- Healthy living -- well-being, issues of balance and stress
I specialise in coaching professionals in transition to find a successful new career, business or life; integrated wellness coaching and business coaching and mentoring for start-ups, the self-employed and micro, small and medium sized businesses.
I work with values, energy, vitality and spirit. For those who want more structure, I offer structured programmes. Integrated wellness coaching combines dimensions of wellness into a quality way of living through a personal wellness plan. Key words for me are 'transformation' and 'healing'.
I'm passionate about supporting people to find work they truly love. I believe that it's impossible to put your job in a neat little box. It impacts your whole life. I believe that your career should be an extension of you. It should play to your strengths and fuel your passions. It should light you up every day. You should get paid for being YOU.
For the past 20 years, I've worked within the retail and online space, heading up complex hiring operations for market leading brands. I set innovative recruitment strategies, built world class teams and supported thousands of individuals to transition into new roles. Looking back, what fascinated me most was how people genuinely excel when they are in roles they love. And how what we want from our work can change, as we do, over time. And that that's perfectly ok! I decided to explore that further, and in 2014, I left the corporate world behind to set up my own career coaching practice full time.
I work with professionals in their 30s, 40s and 50s to reinvent their careers into something they love.
When clients come to me, they say things like "I'm successful at what I do, but it's never really felt like 'me', or "I've always felt like a bit of an 'imposter' at work, and I'm worn out." I also work with women with young families who say "I'm ready for something for me again." They are ready for a change, after having taken a career break to focus on family. However, the career they had before having a family is no longer a good fit for their lives.
