I offer the Firework career coaching programme to individuals who are ready to make a transition and committed to change but for whatever reason are experiencing a block.
My bespoke coaching services attract clients who want to achieve personal goals in order to lead a more fulfilling life. When I work with someone in this way we create a plan tailored to their needs and aspirations.
I have a varied client base because I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for a long time in different sectors. A lot of my work comes from my network and referrals.
All aspects of business, personal and behavioral coaching. I work across all sectors with a mix of gender and role/position in the organisation.
As a career coach I can help you to create the working life that you really want. I work with a wide range of individuals, ranging from those just starting out in the workplace, through returners to the work, to those who are looking for more career satisfaction.
My coaching style is collaborative. I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which you will feel at ease and together we can identify your strengths and passions to create a career you will love. We will look at barriers and create a road-map that will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.
How we work together will be led by you; we can work within a structured programme or take a more flexible approach.

I offer coaching sessions in English and German.
I specialise in helping people find a way through mid-life career review and change.
We might be a good fit, if you are in one of these situations:
- Facing redundancy and wanting to rebuild your confidence or review your choices.
- Out of love with your work; you want to do something else, but don’t yet know what.
- Considering self-employment or starting a business; you want to do something you enjoy, have more freedom and make a living.
- Returning to work after time at home with children or as a carer.
- You want to get clarity about your next steps and regain your confidence.
What my clients say about my coaching style:
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 have 10 years experience of safely navigating individuals and groups through the choppy seas of transition. I support and partner with amongst others:
Mid level and senior executives considering a complete career change
Entrepreneurs embarking on a new business venture
Women returning to the workplace after a career break
Media practitioners wanting to get more of the creative work that gives them their spark
Clients come away from our work together having truly connected with what really matters to them and fully recognising the unique strengths that allow them to shine. This renewed sense of self gives them the clarity and motivation to positively manage change and move forward with confidence.
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!
Typically I coach career changers who are looking for more meaning to their working life, and who want to live better according to their own values.
According to my clients my coaching is warm, friendly and respectful, and still strongly forward leading. With me it is easy to look inside to find out one's own strengths and to gain more courage to take the steps needed towards the goals.
