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 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.
Coaching for mid-career women feeling unfulfilled at work.
I'm a warm and friendly coach who loves to bring a sense of playful curiosity to all my coaching sessions.
I specialise in working with people who are unhappy at work. I can help you get unstuck, freed up and moving towards work you can't wait to get out of bed for. I use tools from the Firework programme as part of an action-based programme to help you get clear on what lights you up, what work you want to do, and how you're going to get there. And I can help you bring a sense of play to the journey, so that you can get there faster, and lighter.
I specialise with coaching relationships where:
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.
I help individuals between thirty - fifty free themselves from a stressful work environment and find a meaningful and passion driven job that leads them to more serenity.
My clients gain more confidence and self-esteem in their capabilities, strengths, competencies, personal values...
I use the Co-Active model (co-creation with the DOING and the BEING) and use mindset strategies that help clients to move forward faster. I also work with the body as a tool (feelings, emotions...) to uncover their truth.
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.
With 10 years plus experience as a transition coach, I work with a wide range of individuals including graduates looking for their first role, postgraduates looking to alter their career path, women returning to work and executives looking for their next career, in short, anyone who is looking for more career satisfaction. I particularly like working with individuals to increase their confidence.
My style is empathetic and genuine and I provide a safe space for you to think differently. I work with the whole of you, your thoughts feelings and behaviours and provide support and challenge through tried and tested coaching interventions to clarify your options and take positive steps forward to achieving your goals; in other words, I hold your hand while you find your way because you cannot teach someone, you can only help them to learn for themselves.
I coach across the management spectrum and enjoy engaging with those in line for promotion or who have just been promoted. I have coached senior leaders in schools.
With many year's experience of Government service and having navigated my way through career transition, I have a deep interest in helping and supporting all individuals leaving the Armed Forces, Police, Civil Service and other uniformed services.
I am interested in personal and professional career development and change. My style is authentic, engaging, non-judgemental and totally supportive. With a focus entirely on the individual, I will encourage but also challenge appropriately when it is needed. My interest is my clients' interest.
