I help smart women redesign a workable and fulfilling career path after motherhood. My clients have taken time out to raise their family and are ready to re-connect with their professional self. But simply diving back into their old industry isn’t going to cut it. They want space and support to get clear on their skills, strengths and passions, to explore other avenues and think differently.
My mission is to champion and challenge you. Help you shake off the doubts and ditch the procrastination. Reawaken your self-belief and get you in action. I am passionate about helping women not lose themselves amid the highs and lows of motherhood. I want us to be able to reconnect with who we were, finally create space to take stock, and find a realistic way to realise the dreams or ambitions we still have. There's a lot of life still to be lived as your children grow. Don't you owe it to yourself to make a conscious choice about how you spend it?

As a Certified Life and Career Coach I support clients through challenging life and career decisions, with either personalised Life Coaching sessions, or a more structured 12-week Career Transition Programme.
Currently based in Dubai and with the benefit of modern technology, I work with men and women residing in the Middle East, UK, US and further afield. The one thing my clients have in common is that, despite being successful, they find themselves in a place of transition, feeling stuck, overwhelmed and unsure about what to do next in their personal lives or professional careers.
I coach mid-career professionals who are ready to take the next step in their career but aren't sure what they want to do next or how to make a career change.
My coaching style is insightful, challenging and supportive. Together we identify your strengths and passions and create a career you'll love. We remove the barriers and build a simple roadmap that takes you from what you're doing now to what you'd truly love to do.
What can you expect when you work with me? This is best described by one of my clients who said, “You’re the sherpa I needed to climb my ‘Everest’. I had to do the work but you walked beside me, showed me shortcuts, made it easier and kept me on track till I reached the top.”
Typically I coach Graduates entering the workplace and clients who are 1-5 years into a job and may be looking for change. I have a track record of defining clients career paths, bringing focus, achievable goals and tips and tricks of how to navigate the job market.
My coaching style is:
- Very hands on working in collaboration with clients.
- Educational - the sessions are full 'knowledge sharing' this helps to build clients' knowledge and ultimately stand them in excellent stead for the rest of their career.
- The sessions are fun and informal, I level with my clients and it produces the best results.
- I go above and beyond for my clients.
- I strive to inspire my clients.
- My clients would say, I am direct and honest.
I coach for development and transformation. I take psychological and systemic approaches, and aim to enable lasting change by going beyond what presents on the surface so that my clients achieve the results they want with confidence. My coaching approach is characterised by: a belief in the client’s potential; building on strengths; the importance of the coach-client relationship and the trust inherent in that; focus on the here and now through awareness and mindfulness (moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience, with no judgment); a holistic perspective; and a creative, experimental attitude. My clients speak of me as challenging and supportive, caring and tough, dynamic and deep, positive, warm and insightful.
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.
I coach IT staff who venture into management positions, staff working in the financial sector (banks mostly), plus employees considering self-employment. I coach in Dutch (mother tongue), English and French. I love to coach outdoors (running or walking).
Do you know that feeling that you just can't put your finger on it? We will work in ways that allow you to put that finger in the exact right spot, and we'll do so in a trusting, safe and fiercely courageous space.
