I work with professionals in their 30s – 40s who are currently going through a career change, promotion or recently relocated.
Usually people start their career in their early twenties and think that they will remain on the same path for all of their life, progressing and achieving always higher goals.
Discovering the desire to change career, might lead to deep feelings of loss and demotivation, self-doubt, fears and identity issues.
My experience of living and working in corporate London means I fully understand the context of my client’s challenges; beside my coaching qualification I'm also a qualified Strengths Practitioner and I provide sessions solely based on career development.
A career change could mean anything from starting a new job, completely changing sector, becoming an entrepreneur and setting up a business, or simply discovering the concept of a portfolio career and intrapreneurship and adjusting your career accordingly.
I'm an executive coach, specialized in Career change, development and change management at work and stress management.
I believe in people's potential. My coaching style is focused on strengths' development. In the process I facilitate the elimination of clients' limitations, so that they can achieve their goals. My style is sensitive, sensible and goal orientated.

I have all types of clients from all kinds of professions and this makes it very rich and interesting for me.
In my previous life I have been an entrepreneur with a company specialised in the organisation of international scientific conferences and meetings. This means I have experience with this sector. Having been a business owner for 20 years now, I'm also well placed to coach people who envisage to start their own business or work for themselves.
Clients tell me I have soft power, I'm a warm, honest and open, combined with an edge of seriousness when needed and absolute determination and focus. I'm often complimented for my energy and commitment. See the section 'praise' on my website for testimonials http://momentum-coaching.eu/en/praise/
I have a blog/newsletter which appears every 2 weeks on Thursday. It can be found on my website under 'Inspiration'
I love working with people who are looking to better their lives by finding a career built on their strengths and their needs.
I have a lot of experience with parents who find that they need a different balance in their lives whilst their children are small.
In addition I have worked with people who are face a 'bore-out' or 'burn-out' and are looking for a new reality.
I would describe my style as supportive and result-oriented. I tend to see through the stresses of my clients to their true strengths. I do expect my clients to take responsibility and ownership of the coaching process. What I mean with that is that I am not going to 'whip' or 'chase' my clients into shape. That is up to them to do.
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.
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.
All aspects of business, psychological and behavioural coaching. I work in all three sectors and with a healthy mix of gender and position/role within an organisation.
My coaching is based on the belief that everyone has the resources to work through their opportunities/challenges and my role is to help facilitate that journey. I use different theoretical frameworks, methods and techniques dependent on the client need and is flexible in my style and approach. Two of my passions are firstly the opportunity to assist in developing patterns of behaviour to achieve desired outcomes and secondly, to maximize effective communication by increasing self awareness and developing communication options.
Mi práctica de coaching de carrera se centra en ayudar a profesionales senior en procesos de cambio, voluntario o sobrevenido, que encuentran dificultad en concretar su objetivo, o en cómo avanzar hacia él. Personas que viven la necesidad de un cambio profesional por inquietud personal y deseos de crecer.
Acompaño a las personas en su proceso reflexivo con actitud positiva y con el propósito de ayudarlas a tomar conciencia de sus posibilidades y de lo que realmente es importante para ellas. Mi propuesta es un enfoque de trabajo estructurado y práctico, basado en la confianza y no en la dependencia, para que puedas tomar decisiones con seguridad y entusiasmo. Me apoyo en un método movilizador y en herramientas de utilidad contrastada, y en mi propia vivencia de transformación personal y profesional.
I work primarily with clients who are in a career transition. I tackle each stage of the career transition process, from creating professional goals; to working toward a promotion or into a new position; to completing a 180 degree career shift. I am also a mum of twins and work directly with Mums who are struggling with both career transition and embracing their newfound identities.
I take a practical and grounded approach during my coaching sessions and believe that we are ultimately one of our own best resources in deciding our next steps. Through support in identifying our unique values and resources we are able to work through both professional and personal issues, which are often closely linked.
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.
