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.”
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.

My signature strength is my ability to connect with clients at a heart level, working with the whole person in order to help them find clarity and a deep sense of meaning.
My clients range from new managers to senior executives and are based all over the world. what they have in common is that they are professionals who are or have a strong desire to transition into a new role, new company or brand new career.
"Nathalie’s frank but positive and non-judgemental approach leads to conversations that are sometimes painfully honest but ultimately empowering and action-focused."
A comment received from a client recently says it all about my style. I believe in empowering my clients to be themselves always in all circumstances.
I am passionate about my clients' career, work, life being fulfilled and 'successful'. I generally (but not exclusively) work with those who -
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 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.”
I love working with people who want to do more purpose-based, meaningful work in the world, who don't want to simply clock in and out of a job for the rest of their careers, and who know they are capable of extraordinary things - if only they could figure out what that is! I also help working parents achieve a more balanced approach in integrating their work with family life.
I have worked with a variety of professionals at all levels in their organizations and with varied goals related to career and purpose, work-life balance, and leadership. Prior to becoming a coach, I led a remote and global team of Learning Consultants in Financial Services technology. I excelled at building relationships within my organization, motivating and inspiring my team and colleagues, and articulating and achieving desired changes in culture and collaboration.
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!
