Find a licensed Firework coach

Sarah Hardman

Based in Oxted, Surrey. Work with London based, UK-wide and overseas clients

My specialty is working with experienced professionals who are at a mid-life or career crossroads who are re-evaluating what they want from their careers and who want a coach to partner with to reconnect them with their strengths, talents and motivations - and to find (or reignite) their professional “mojo”. Some clients already know that they are ready to make a change whilst others simply want to explore the options or make positive changes in their careers. I also work with professionals who are in the latter part of their career who are considering what it is they want for the final furlong of their working lives.

Clients tell me that I’m approachable and upbeat, work creatively and intuitively, balancing a sense of fun with positive challenge whilst creating a supportive and encouraging environment which brings out the best in people.

I have an office in Brighton, East Sussex and can meet up in central London

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.

Sussex, UK

I work with people who want to make changes in their working life and are longing for greater fulfilment in their career. Clients have often been successful in their career so far, but now describe feeling stuck or at a crossroads where:

  • they want to do something that feels more meaningful or ‘right for them’
  • they want to regain balance in their lives or are facing changes such as returning to work after having children or redundancy
  • working out what to do next feels overwhelming; some have a dream but no plan, others have little idea yet, just not what they are doing now!

I also coach people in small/medium businesses or organisations who want to help maximise their own or others performance. I am experienced at coaching leaders and their teams on a wide range of goals including leadership, emotional intelligence, managing change, building confidence and self-awareness, MBTI and career development.

Britta Siggelkow

London

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.”

Graham Tate

I coach face to face across the UK and I am based in Herefordshire

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.

Nick Harris

Suffolk

Do you find yourself at a crossroads? Are you still looking to secure that dream job or are you facing important choices about the direction your working life will take? How should you deal with workplace challenges or find the right balance between work and family? How would you feel if you had a more satisfying and rewarding career?

I have coached a variety of individuals in areas like career development, promotion, coping with redundancy, making a career change, managing anxiety or stress and those returning to work after a career break.

Very often I speak to people who are miserable in their job or are unhappy with where they are, but they don’t know what to do, and they don’t see that they have choices. The initial focus for the coaching is therefore often around building confidence in order to create options.

I can then help you to reconnect with your strengths, expertise and capabilities because often people can lose sight of what they’ve achieved in the past when a job has become unsatisfying.

Helen Collins

Berkshire, UK

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.

Barbara Greenway

London

My business experience and coaching focus is very much on personal and organisational development and the corresponding change management processes, and on delivering coaching interventions to improve resilience, performance and leadership capability. I also specialises in coaching individuals to develop an authentic leadership presence, particularly those moving from middle to senior management or into a Board level role.

I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which clients feel at ease and able to be honest about how they are feeling about their work and their lives. I bring wisdom and kindness into the space, letting in the light that enables clients to tap into their own authentic resourcefulness and to create a better future for themselves.

Marina Burton

London and Surrey

I believe everyone deserves to find their 'why' in life. I work with passionate, young professionals predominantly in their 20's and 30's to help them find fulfilling, meaningful work. This can mean helping you navigate a career change, developing your existing role, starting your own business or anything in between.

I offer a structured and comprehensive approach, enabling clients to understand what they want from their careers, what they're capable of, and an explorative process to discover new career pathways. We would typically work together over three to six months depending on the pace you feel comfortable with. I also offer bespoke programmes starting from six weeks.

Sessions typically take place online, but I also work face to face in the London & Surrey area.

Anne Gelebart

Amsterdam

I help individuals who want a successful and fulfilling career whilst having time for their family and friends (Professionals looking for a meaningful career or for their next step, Professionals looking for a better work life balance, Trailing spouse looking for a career change or looking for a job).

I am an empathetic & open-minded coach, and I can sometimes be confronting. My coachees say they came out with practical lifetime tools to help them move forward, they also feel that their focus has increased and that their self-awareness has grown tremendously. This has often resulted in a promotion or a visible impact on their peers’ interactions.
