Sally Ann Jones

London

I offer bespoke executive coaching both face-to-face and remotely in central London, and internationally for Board Directors, Partners of Professional Service Firms, Senior Leaders and their Teams. Typically, I work with individuals at a point of personal or professional transition: newly promoted leaders; executives returning to work after extended absence or at a point of inflection where there are signs of a pattern of declining leadership/managerial performance.

I normally start with an assessment tool which enables me to tailor my approach to you and your situation. I draw on my learning and development background and business and coaching experience to meet you at your level, challenge you to move beyond your comfort zone in order to help you succeed.

Geraldine Locke

London and Global via Zoom or Skype

I specialise in mature career changers looking to make end of career decisions, and moving to a portfolio approach to life, pre-retirement. I coach both one-to-one, with couples and in groups.

I have a down-to-earth, common sense approach to coaching. I use a strengths based approach to helping clients facilitate their journey of self discovery, and help clients to be open minded and practical when facing the choices in front of them.

Charlotte Whalley

Richmond, Central London and South West London

I work with all kinds of people but mostly they are professional women looking for that extra 10%, or to find more balance and happiness.

Often I work with women in leadership (or those who are seeking to grow into leadership roles) accompanying and helping them grow and excel, and also those who reached a crossroads and perhaps want to take a new path.

I love helping women to take decisions with confidence and stop second guessing themselves.

I am a warm and happy person with a positive outlook on life. I am a qualified Animas Transformational Life Coach and a Firework Career Coach. My background is 15 years in international business where I've held global leadership roles. I have lived and worked in Thailand, Australia, Singapore, Paris and London which has given me wonderful experiences of working with different people and cultures.

I am passionate about helping people to find their purpose, become happier and more fulfilled.

Caroline Cameron

Melbourne, Australia. Also coach via Skype clients from around Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia

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.”

Leigh Jackson

London/Greater London (face to face coaching); rest of UK and world-wide (via Skype/Facetime).

My particular interest is in providing career and leadership coaching to introverts and "quiet" people who often find it difficult to be seen and heard in corporate environments. I have a corporate communications background, so I really enjoy supporting my clients to find their authentic voice, to develop their personal brand and to communicate with impact and confidence. I often work with people in the high-tech industries - that's also part of my background.

My clients tell me my coaching style is exhilarating, motivating and supportive! They get fired up and inspired as a consequence. When appropriate, I like to bring energy to a session and to support my clients in moving forward and taking action in their careers and in their communication styles. As a CTI co-active coach, however, I also like to be "in the moment" with my clients when required.

Joanna Jacobs

Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Wiltshire

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! 

Juergen Peterke

Speyer, Germany

I have more than 20 years of experience in executive coaching working with companies from different industries and with management staff of all hierarchies and functions.

I specialise in:

  • change & transformation
  • transition coaching
  • leadership performance
  • career coaching

My approach is action-oriented and pragmatic. Its fundament of eclectic ”practice theory” has proven effective and is derived from many years of intensive studies of concepts of management, organization and leadership development. My clients cherish my strategic and conceptual expertise combined with a fine sense for human beings. Coaching for me is guided reflection leading to concrete steps of action.

Michelle Bayley

Based in Twickenham, West London. Work with London based, UK-wide and overseas clients.

I specialise in career transition coaching and train other coaches to use the Firework career change process. Over the past 13 years I've worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds, including:

  • 30 and 40 somethings who feel their current work isn't what they want to do until they retire;
  • women with young families who want work that fits better with the rest of their life;
  • 20 somethings who have fallen into work that they know isn't the right match for them; and
  • people of all ages who want to feel they're doing something more purposeful than their current job.

I also work with people who want to get a promotion, who have recently moved from management to leadership or who want to improve any aspect of their current work. And I do general life coaching, helping people to find a way forward with anything, from a relationship issue to improving their confidence and generally living a happier life.

Phil Richards

Hampshire

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.
