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.
I work with individuals looking to make positive career changes. My coaching style is contemporary, creative and fun! I work very much with the individual and together we create a bespoke coaching programme that's right for their personal and professional growth.
My particular interest is in providing career and leadership coaching to introverts and "quiet" people who often find it difficult to be seen and heard in corporate environments. I have a corporate communications background, so I really enjoy supporting my clients to find their authentic voice, to develop their personal brand and to communicate with impact and confidence. I often work with people in the high-tech industries - that's also part of my background.
My clients tell me my coaching style is exhilarating, motivating and supportive! They get fired up and inspired as a consequence. When appropriate, I like to bring energy to a session and to support my clients in moving forward and taking action in their careers and in their communication styles. As a CTI co-active coach, however, I also like to be "in the moment" with my clients when required.
I specialise with coaching relationships where:
I help individuals between thirty - fifty free themselves from a stressful work environment and find a meaningful and passion driven job that leads them to more serenity.
My clients gain more confidence and self-esteem in their capabilities, strengths, competencies, personal values...
I use the Co-Active model (co-creation with the DOING and the BEING) and use mindset strategies that help clients to move forward faster. I also work with the body as a tool (feelings, emotions...) to uncover their truth.
I coach mid- and senior-level professionals in the corporate sector (predominantly financial services), helping them to position their personal brand, successfully navigate their networks and expand career possibilities.
My coaching approach draws from:
a) Latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create an understanding of how coaching impacts neuroplasticity and helps build the psychological skills needed to support lasting change.
b) Systemic Thinking to help senior professionals, executives and business leaders to look beyond individual development to find solutions which also benefit the wider systems they're part of.
c) My strong corporate experience in senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational organisations. This means my coaching approach is tailored to factor in pressures and constraints that come with leadership responsibility in these organisations.
As a career transition & life coach and hypnotherapist I work with individuals who
• feel stuck in their job/career, are no longer finding it fulfilling and don’t know how to change it; or
• are facing the possibility of redundancy or changes at work are meaning that they are moving on but are not sure they want to jump into the same job again; or
I specialise in creative leadership, team and career development. I work primarily with leaders and managers in the creative industries, having spent the first 18 years of my own career working in creative, media and technology companies.
My special interests lie in supporting leaders and teams navigating high pressure and fast changing environments, managing challenging relationships and stress. We might focus on developing self awareness and calibrating your impact, managing energy and priorities, maintaining confidence and resilience or work/life balance.
Clients often come to me at a turning point in their career - planning a new direction, a promotion and increased responsibility, navigating peak delivery time, leading a new team or leading organisational changes.
As an entrepreneur and new mum, I specialise in career coaching and personal development for management level (5-15 years work experience) as well as mothers returning to work after maternity break. Most of my clients have a corporate background and are looking for more fulfilment, either through a career change or through a side project in their life.
I am calm, intuitive, challenging and direct. I expect hard work from my clients so they can make the most of our sessions and move forward in their careers.
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.
