Joanna Jacobs

Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Wiltshire

Coaching specialism: individuals experiencing career transition, or who want to do more of what they love, particularly after career break. 

Coaching style: I am a warm, attentive and intuitive coach, focused on the individual as a whole. I experienced my own career transition since having my daughter four years ago (from Corporate HR to freelance coaching and facilitation) I am energised by helping others to capitalise on the opportunity a career break can give for reigniting passions and discovering new ones! 

Sally Ann Jones

London

I offer bespoke executive coaching both face-to-face and remotely in central London, and internationally for Board Directors, Partners of Professional Service Firms, Senior Leaders and their Teams. Typically, I work with individuals at a point of personal or professional transition: newly promoted leaders; executives returning to work after extended absence or at a point of inflection where there are signs of a pattern of declining leadership/managerial performance.

I normally start with an assessment tool which enables me to tailor my approach to you and your situation. I draw on my learning and development background and business and coaching experience to meet you at your level, challenge you to move beyond your comfort zone in order to help you succeed.

Jo Ball

Devon - particularly in the South Hams, Totnes, Dartmouth, Dartington, Ashburton, Newton Abbot, Exeter and Plymouth.

I work predominantly with people who want to make a positive difference in their lives and for those around them. I often work with creatives, people from a social care or voluntary sector background, changemakers and those interested in carving their own path.

I offer 1-1 coaching for mothers and also offer Firework for mothers returning to work.

In addition, I specialise in working with people who want to develop their inner resources to sustain themselves whilst creating external change.

My style is warm, collaborative, intuitive, flexible and creative. I love to work in-depth so, alongside your plan for a future career, you have the opportunity to develop practices and strategies that will support you as you step into your future. Getting the right balance of challenge and support can make a huge difference as you work towards a career transition so we work together to ensure this.

Kate Cusack

Brighton, East Sussex, UK

I am a Life and Career Coach, based in Brighton, UK. I work 1:1 with clients locally, or with clients from all over the world using telephone or Skype.

I work with anyone who feels they would like more meaning and fulfilment from their career, but isn’t exactly sure what that career is, or how to get there. I get huge satisfaction from helping clients go from confusion to clarity on which direction to take in their career, to achieve true happiness and satisfaction from their work.

I love working with the Firework Programme because it uses unique and varied exercises to uncover who you are and what really makes you tick, so you can address the question of what career is really right for you, based on an in-depth awareness of what you need to be truly happy, both in your life and your career.

Helen Burgess

Cheshire based, offering face to face coaching in Manchester, Lancashire and North Wales. Skype coaching available countrywide.

I specialise in coaching individuals at pivotal moments in their career; enabling them to grow their confidence, expand their skills and build their resilience to thrive, rather than just survive through transition.

I offer a range of coaching options, from one off help as a ‘thinking partner’ to a programme over several months that offers a deep personal ‘exploration’, using psychometrics and neuroscience to uncover your strengths and values. At the end of the coaching programme you will have gained clarity in your thinking and a focused action plan that you feel confident, excited and energised to move forward. The first consultation to examine what you are drawn to (or are being driven from) is always free.

My career coaching is ideal for:
• Mid-career professionals who are successful but not fulfilled in their current role
• New graduates looking for career direction
• Men or women returning to work after a career break

Barbara Greenway

London

My business experience and coaching focus is very much on personal and organisational development and the corresponding change management processes, and on delivering coaching interventions to improve resilience, performance and leadership capability. I also specialises in coaching individuals to develop an authentic leadership presence, particularly those moving from middle to senior management or into a Board level role.

I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which clients feel at ease and able to be honest about how they are feeling about their work and their lives. I bring wisdom and kindness into the space, letting in the light that enables clients to tap into their own authentic resourcefulness and to create a better future for themselves.

Sarah Hardman

Based in Oxted, Surrey. Work with London based, UK-wide and overseas clients

My specialty is working with experienced professionals who are at a mid-life or career crossroads who are re-evaluating what they want from their careers and who want a coach to partner with to reconnect them with their strengths, talents and motivations - and to find (or reignite) their professional “mojo”. Some clients already know that they are ready to make a change whilst others simply want to explore the options or make positive changes in their careers. I also work with professionals who are in the latter part of their career who are considering what it is they want for the final furlong of their working lives.

Clients tell me that I’m approachable and upbeat, work creatively and intuitively, balancing a sense of fun with positive challenge whilst creating a supportive and encouraging environment which brings out the best in people.

Emily Taylor

Sussex, UK

I work with people who want to make changes in their working life and are longing for greater fulfilment in their career. Clients have often been successful in their career so far, but now describe feeling stuck or at a crossroads where:

  • they want to do something that feels more meaningful or ‘right for them’
  • they want to regain balance in their lives or are facing changes such as returning to work after having children or redundancy
  • working out what to do next feels overwhelming; some have a dream but no plan, others have little idea yet, just not what they are doing now!

I also coach people in small/medium businesses or organisations who want to help maximise their own or others performance. I am experienced at coaching leaders and their teams on a wide range of goals including leadership, emotional intelligence, managing change, building confidence and self-awareness, MBTI and career development.

Richard Cook

London, UK

I specialise in coaching individuals around their careers and relationships. I work with individuals looking to make important shifts in their lives - whether in their work life or their personal life - or both! I work with senior leaders to effectively manage priorities and deadlines, achieve optimal work/life balance, communicate and build stronger relationships with bosses, peers and direct reports, level-up their emotional intelligence, strengthen their executive presence, and illuminate "blind spots" in their behaviour affecting their impact and advancement.

I design your coaching with you in a way that addresses your unique strengths, abilities, life experiences, challenges and blind spots so that you can discover and realise what you are longing to make happen in your life. I am known for my emotional honesty with clients and will ask those challenging questions at the heart of the matter - yet do it gently and with respect.

 

Janice Taylor

Will coach face to face at my home office in Brighton and Hove, otherwise Skype or phone.

I use the GROW model and my style is straight forward and to the point. I use a background questionnaire right at the start to set the scene and we can then agree on the key areas to focus on. I use models to facilitate our conversations, and the tools from Firework.

I am a career coach working predominantly with mid-career women who want to find ways to work well and live well.
