I specialise in creative leadership, team and career development. I work primarily with leaders and managers in the creative industries, having spent the first 18 years of my own career working in creative, media and technology companies.
My special interests lie in supporting leaders and teams navigating high pressure and fast changing environments, managing challenging relationships and stress. We might focus on developing self awareness and calibrating your impact, managing energy and priorities, maintaining confidence and resilience or work/life balance.
Clients often come to me at a turning point in their career - planning a new direction, a promotion and increased responsibility, navigating peak delivery time, leading a new team or leading organisational changes.
As a career transition & life coach and hypnotherapist I work with individuals who
• feel stuck in their job/career, are no longer finding it fulfilling and don’t know how to change it; or
• are facing the possibility of redundancy or changes at work are meaning that they are moving on but are not sure they want to jump into the same job again; or
• have had their “is this really it” moment realising they don’t want to continue on the same career path for another 20 years but don’t know how to step onto a different path.
This may be about making a total career change or it could be about tweaking what you currently do - where you work, who you work with etc - to make a meaningful change.
Often my clients notice a change in their wellbeing either at home/ work or both and know they want to change something.

I use the GROW model and my style is straight forward and to the point. I use a background questionnaire right at the start to set the scene and we can then agree on the key areas to focus on. I use models to facilitate our conversations, and the tools from Firework.
I am a career coach working predominantly with mid-career women who want to find ways to work well and live well.

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.
I have 10 years experience of safely navigating individuals and groups through the choppy seas of transition. I support and partner with amongst others:
Mid level and senior executives considering a complete career change
Entrepreneurs embarking on a new business venture
Women returning to the workplace after a career break
Media practitioners wanting to get more of the creative work that gives them their spark
Clients come away from our work together having truly connected with what really matters to them and fully recognising the unique strengths that allow them to shine. This renewed sense of self gives them the clarity and motivation to positively manage change and move forward with confidence.
I work predominantly with women who are looking to launch themselves into a new career, often after a period of time at home. I help them define what they want from their work and life going forward and support them in creating detailed plans about how to achieve their objectives. I am passionate about helping believe that it is possible to have a new career at any phase of their life.
I also work with clients in demanding, sometimes new role roles who are seeking success and confidence at work, whilst balancing their life outside work.
I have a warm, supportive and non-judgemental approach. I help clients keep alive what it is that they dream of for themselves and encourage them to 'play big'. Clients say that I am insightful, a good listener, empathetic and encouraging.
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.
I offer the Firework career coaching programme to individuals who are ready to make a transition and committed to change but for whatever reason are experiencing a block.
My bespoke coaching services attract clients who want to achieve personal goals in order to lead a more fulfilling life. When I work with someone in this way we create a plan tailored to their needs and aspirations.
I have a varied client base because I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for a long time in different sectors. A lot of my work comes from my network and referrals.
