I am a passionate professional Career Coach and Consultant with a particular interest in career change coaching. I love coaching people who feel they have reached a cross-roads in their career, or perhaps have experienced redundancy, and are seriously seeking a change of direction, but are unclear as to what that may look like.
I provide access to the structured FireworkTM coaching programme, creating the space to enable the coachee to connect consciously with their authentic self; to encourage them to collate, consider and explore career options available to them; to create a vision or visions, and to set out a plan of action to bring one chosen option, aligned to their authentic self, to life.
I work with people who find themselves at transition points in their careers. This includes exploring career direction and supporting managers and leaders to develop their management, leadership and business skills so they can progress in their chosen career. While the backgrounds and career paths may vary the golden thread is they all want to be fulfilled in their work and are committed to making a change.
I work with:
• People seeking to explore a change in career direction
• First time managers
• People who have stepped from management into a leadership position
• People wanting to develop key skills
I am passionate about helping others realise their potential, develop and succeed in their chosen career, afterall we spend too much time at work not to be happy.
I'm passionate about supporting people to find work they truly love. I believe that it's impossible to put your job in a neat little box. It impacts your whole life. I believe that your career should be an extension of you. It should play to your strengths and fuel your passions. It should light you up every day. You should get paid for being YOU.
For the past 20 years, I've worked within the retail and online space, heading up complex hiring operations for market leading brands. I set innovative recruitment strategies, built world class teams and supported thousands of individuals to transition into new roles. Looking back, what fascinated me most was how people genuinely excel when they are in roles they love. And how what we want from our work can change, as we do, over time. And that that's perfectly ok! I decided to explore that further, and in 2014, I left the corporate world behind to set up my own career coaching practice full time.
I specialise in coaching individuals around their careers and relationships. I work with individuals looking to make important shifts in their lives - whether in their work life or their personal life - or both! I work with senior leaders to effectively manage priorities and deadlines, achieve optimal work/life balance, communicate and build stronger relationships with bosses, peers and direct reports, level-up their emotional intelligence, strengthen their executive presence, and illuminate "blind spots" in their behaviour affecting their impact and advancement.
I design your coaching with you in a way that addresses your unique strengths, abilities, life experiences, challenges and blind spots so that you can discover and realise what you are longing to make happen in your life. I am known for my emotional honesty with clients and will ask those challenging questions at the heart of the matter - yet do it gently and with respect.
I specialise in working with people from creative, digital, fast paced, or entrepreneurial business backgrounds. People who may be:
• Successful but frustrated and unhappy in their current career
• Full of ideas but unsure how to make them happen
• Women who have become mothers, who want an autonomous and fulfilling career that allows them to live the life they want to live now.
My style as a coach is warm, intuitive, and, at times, direct. I encourage experimentation and action. This helps the people I work with realise their potential and affirm their confidence.
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 individuals looking to make positive career changes. My coaching style is contemporary, creative and fun! I work very much with the individual and together we create a bespoke coaching programme that's right for their personal and professional growth.
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.
