I work with professionals in their 30s, 40s and 50s to reinvent their careers into something they love.
When clients come to me, they say things like "I'm successful at what I do, but it's never really felt like 'me', or "I've always felt like a bit of an 'imposter' at work, and I'm worn out." I also work with women with young families who say "I'm ready for something for me again." They are ready for a change, after having taken a career break to focus on family. However, the career they had before having a family is no longer a good fit for their lives.
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.
I help leaders and individuals who are in transition, finding direction, building confidence and resilience in times of change to enable clients to achieve and sustain success.
Before specialising as an executive coach, I worked as a senior HR professional for major blue chip global matrix organisations concentrating on recruitment, change management, acquisition and divestment, post merger integration, talent and performance management. I have worked in manufacturing, commercial, sales and professional services environments including well known brands such as Bayer, ICI, Syngenta, Siemens and Unigate. I also have experience of building supplies, engineering and banking sectors.
I am a Professional Certified Coach with the ICF, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a Master Practitioner in NLP.
I work with professional women who want to make more of a difference in their careers or better use their creativity at work.
This could be at any stage in your career – it might be the first time you've intentionally considered matching your career with your motivations, purpose and talents – or when you are at a key transition point such as maternity or starting a business. You might want to step into a new challenge such as leadership, or use skills that you have not previously used at work.
I also help business partnerships and teams to work more productively together, understanding how to play to each other's strengths and make better use of your diversity.
I have a warm and approachable style, creating a safe space for clients to stretch into their talents and explore their range. I enjoy working creatively and with intuition, building a strong alliance with clients, encouraging them to recognise their strengths and build the confidence to work through challenges.
I support clients during major transitions in their life, and guide them to follow their inner compass. We look at making changes from the inside out: If offer career change expertise as well as during any form of personal transition. As all parts of our lives are connected we'll deep dive into all areas of life.
I'll support you on your journey to
- reconnect with yourself
- identify and release inner blocks
- deepen your learning about yourself
- discover what really matters to you
- and to create the life you aspire to
I offer coaching sessions in English and German.
