I offer coaching sessions in English and German.
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.
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 love working with people who want to do more purpose-based, meaningful work in the world, who don't want to simply clock in and out of a job for the rest of their careers, and who know they are capable of extraordinary things - if only they could figure out what that is! I also help working parents achieve a more balanced approach in integrating their work with family life.
I have worked with a variety of professionals at all levels in their organizations and with varied goals related to career and purpose, work-life balance, and leadership. Prior to becoming a coach, I led a remote and global team of Learning Consultants in Financial Services technology. I excelled at building relationships within my organization, motivating and inspiring my team and colleagues, and articulating and achieving desired changes in culture and collaboration.
I work with people who want to make changes in their working life and are longing for greater fulfilment in their career. Clients have often been successful in their career so far, but now describe feeling stuck or at a crossroads where:
- they want to do something that feels more meaningful or ‘right for them’
- they want to regain balance in their lives or are facing changes such as returning to work after having children or redundancy
- working out what to do next feels overwhelming; some have a dream but no plan, others have little idea yet, just not what they are doing now!
I also coach people in small/medium businesses or organisations who want to help maximise their own or others performance. I am experienced at coaching leaders and their teams on a wide range of goals including leadership, emotional intelligence, managing change, building confidence and self-awareness, MBTI and career development.
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 specialise in working with women in their thirties and forties who are at a career crossroads and are considering a career shift. My 12 week coaching programme is ideal for those who want to change career but have no idea - or too many ideas - about what they want to do instead. I help them find and move into work that's more fulfilling for them.
I offer a structured approach to explore your career change and will encourage you to expand the boundaries of your comfort zone so you'll find yourself on a path that suits you better.
I have been described as kind, positive, feisty, encouraging and inspiring. I'm prepared to challenge unhelpful habits or negative thought processes to help raise your self awareness and get you into action-mode. I have a passionate belief that everyone deserves to have a career that fulfils them and enhances their lives.

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/

My coaching style is based on authenticity. I listen to my clients and explore opportunities and support them in discovering the solutions by themselves. I believe in authenticity and honesty. I live my life with a belief that helping others is the purpose of my life.
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.
