As a career and personal development coach I help mid-career professionals to create the working life they really want.
Both my personal and working life experience – including 20 years professional experience as architect (employed & self employed) in 3 different countries and transition to professional coaching at mid-career – provide me with a great understanding of the challenges that mid-career professionals face and allow me to bring empathy, perspective and practical insights to my coaching when supporting my clients on their own journeys of exploring career options and possible transitions.
My coaching style is warm, facilitative, reflective and goal orientated.
My clients say:
“Britta's coaching style is gentle yet firm and she has exceptional reflective listening skills which made me feel safe and supported.”
“Britta is very calm and an excellent listener. Her reflections helped me to move my project along and leave me feeling like progress was being lead by me.”
Career coaching for senior executives wanting to consider a complete change of career.
Entrepreneurs wanting to be more focussed and organised in their heads so that they can achieve their great ideas rather than letting their ideas slip through their fingers.
Prospective clients wanting to build up their confidence.
A silver fist in a velvet glove would be an accurate description of my working style...I hold a clean space for deep thinking and then agree accountability with the client. This accountability then becomes the focus of our good work together. I'm a skilled motivator and have been referred to as a 'motivational defribilator'.
After many years experience as a senior recruitment consultant I quickly understand what a client is capable of, which is frequently more than they see for themselves.
With 15 years experience within international matrix structured organisations and 9 years based out of Dubai, I am passionate about the art, science and psychology that underpins my professional background and I believe that when companies and individuals act in alignment with their unique strengths, passion and purpose they unleash incredible creativity, innovation and potential that produces inspirational leaders and market leading companies. I enjoy supporting executives in achieving their boldest goals both inside and outside of the workplace.
- women who are lack the confidence to be able to make the change out of their current job into the career they have a real passion for
- women who struggle with self-doubt and aren't sure what career they are suited to
- women going back into the workplace lacking confidence after a career break
As your coach I would:
- Empower you to make choices and changes in your life and career
- Support you, with tools and skills, to improve your self-esteem and give you the confidence to achieve those changes
- Motivate you to ensure you have the resilience to complete your journey
-Challenge any limiting beliefs which are holding you back and enable you to replace them with positive beliefs
I work with individuals searching for greater meaning in their work. Those thinking about a slight shift or a complete change in their career. I focus on helping people understand their values, find a goal and coach them to get there.
My background is in the not for profit sector. That’s why I work passionately with people dedicated to something that really matters. Of course, what makes work meaningful is as individual as every client. It could be charity, IT, retail, big business, or a thousand other things. I thrive on helping people figure out what matters them, no matter the sector or the role.
I specialise in helping:
• Men and women in their mid 20s to mid 50s assessing their career
• Individuals considering major career changes
• Individuals interested in the not for profit and for-purpose space, but I work with clients across all sectors
As a qualified career practitioner with experience in the UK and Dubai, I coach professionals who have reached a natural hiatus in their career, especially women returning to paid employment after a break, expats in transition to new locations, and 'escapees' wanting to explore a second or third more fulfilling career direction. I've developed 3 successful careers over 3 decades and across 2 continents, so I understand change and how to re-design life to match how we evolve over time.
As a career change coach I'm approachable, creative and focused. With a positive and global outlook, I love helping clients ignite their values, recognise their achievements and purpose to re-design the life and work in which they can thrive.
With 10 years plus experience as a transition coach, I work with a wide range of individuals including graduates looking for their first role, postgraduates looking to alter their career path, women returning to work and executives looking for their next career, in short, anyone who is looking for more career satisfaction. I particularly like working with individuals to increase their confidence.
My style is empathetic and genuine and I provide a safe space for you to think differently. I work with the whole of you, your thoughts feelings and behaviours and provide support and challenge through tried and tested coaching interventions to clarify your options and take positive steps forward to achieving your goals; in other words, I hold your hand while you find your way because you cannot teach someone, you can only help them to learn for themselves.
I am a passionate professional Career Coach and Consultant with a particular interest in career change coaching. I love coaching people who feel they have reached a cross-roads in their career, or perhaps have experienced redundancy, and are seriously seeking a change of direction, but are unclear as to what that may look like.
I provide access to the structured FireworkTM coaching programme, creating the space to enable the coachee to connect consciously with their authentic self; to encourage them to collate, consider and explore career options available to them; to create a vision or visions, and to set out a plan of action to bring one chosen option, aligned to their authentic self, to life.
