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 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.
I work with professional women who want to make more of a difference in their careers or better use their creativity at work.
This could be at any stage in your career – it might be the first time you've intentionally considered matching your career with your motivations, purpose and talents – or when you are at a key transition point such as maternity or starting a business. You might want to step into a new challenge such as leadership, or use skills that you have not previously used at work.
I also help business partnerships and teams to work more productively together, understanding how to play to each other's strengths and make better use of your diversity.
I have a warm and approachable style, creating a safe space for clients to stretch into their talents and explore their range. I enjoy working creatively and with intuition, building a strong alliance with clients, encouraging them to recognise their strengths and build the confidence to work through challenges.
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
Ana Paula Nacif
I am an experienced coach and personal development trainer who works with individuals on career progression and leadership. I work with middle and senior managers in the public and not-for profit sectors.
My coaching style is insightful, challenging, intuitive, encouraging, direct and energetic. By creating an atmosphere of trust, I am able to challenge comfort zones and tap into the resourcefulness of my clients with clarity. Clients say that I am a dynamic and insightful coach who is not afraid to push the boundaries to support my clients to achieve their full potential.
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.
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 specialise in working with people from creative, digital, fast paced, or entrepreneurial business backgrounds. People who may be:
• Successful but frustrated and unhappy in their current career
• Full of ideas but unsure how to make them happen
• Women who have become mothers, who want an autonomous and fulfilling career that allows them to live the life they want to live now.
My style as a coach is warm, intuitive, and, at times, direct. I encourage experimentation and action. This helps the people I work with realise their potential and affirm their confidence.
Career Coaching for individuals who are feeling stuck, lost or disillusioned and who are considering a complete career change or just want to feel that they are on the right path, which may involve a change in their current working environment rather than a total overhaul.
I also specialise in Relationship Coaching helping individuals who are struggling in their relationship to improve their communication and sense of boundaries and show up in a more confident and empowered way with their partner.
I work with a range of people, many of which are from the creative industries given my background. Most importantly I work with people from all ages and backgrounds who want to live their lives to the fullest and are committed to making a change. These include:
- People who are looking to find more fulfilment and enjoyment in the life/career.
- People who want to consider a career change
- Women returning to work after maternity leave, a career break or a change in career direction
I have been described as warm, enlightening, and inspirational, but I'm also prepared to challenge habitual and obstructive behaviour or thought processes. I have the skills to tackle issues in a positive and productive way. And mostly, I have a passionate belief that work should be a fulfilling and enriching part of our lives.
