I help leaders and individuals who are in transition, finding direction, building confidence and resilience in times of change to enable clients to achieve and sustain success.
Before specialising as an executive coach, I worked as a senior HR professional for major blue chip global matrix organisations concentrating on recruitment, change management, acquisition and divestment, post merger integration, talent and performance management. I have worked in manufacturing, commercial, sales and professional services environments including well known brands such as Bayer, ICI, Syngenta, Siemens and Unigate. I also have experience of building supplies, engineering and banking sectors.
I am a Professional Certified Coach with the ICF, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a Master Practitioner in NLP.
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.
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!
I work with driven corporate professionals in their late 20s to early 40s who are brilliant at what they do and want to take the next step in their career. Whether this be getting a promotion, improving leadership skills, boosting your work performance, getting a well deserved salary raise or changing career direction completely.
I have spent over 10 years working as an executive in investment banking and leaving the corporate environment to launch my coaching business, which gives me a unique perspective on the challenges professionals are facing within companies today and how to build a thriving career within organizations as well as what it takes to successfully change careers.
I work with people who find themselves at transition points in their careers. This includes exploring career direction and supporting managers and leaders to develop their management, leadership and business skills so they can progress in their chosen career. While the backgrounds and career paths may vary the golden thread is they all want to be fulfilled in their work and are committed to making a change.
I work with:
• People seeking to explore a change in career direction
• First time managers
• People who have stepped from management into a leadership position
• People wanting to develop key skills
I am passionate about helping others realise their potential, develop and succeed in their chosen career, afterall we spend too much time at work not to be happy.
My coaching specialisms are:-
- Career transitions
- Planning and preparing for expatriate secondments and repatriation
- Career-life interactions
I offer a space within which you are able to share, explore and develop action plans for the career opportunities or challenges that you face, based on a trusted and confidential relationship. I have personally experienced the highs and lows of the career cycle across professional and financial services organisations, the impact it can have on other domains of life and the importance of maintaining perspective and well-being. The decisions will always be yours to make; my role is to ask the right questions to help make your decisions as informed as possible.
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.
I specialise in coaching:
- Women returning to work after a career break
- Professionals facing career transition
My coaching style is creative, intuitive, energising, empowering, playful and challenging.
I love helping clients connect to their values and strengths, develop their resilience and increase their confidence to find meaningful roles that are an authentic fit with who they are at their essence.
