Licensed Firework coaches

Leila Denison-Pender

London

I specialise in career change and direction, working with people who are reassessing their lives and looking for a more fulfilling career. This can encompass either a complete career transition or just a better fit within their current industry.

I work with clients from all walks of life and all ages, from mid management with 15 years’ experience in their field who now want to do something different to young people at the beginning of their career trying to find their path.

I have a background in recruitment and have worked extensively with people within Financial Services, Advertising and Creative agencies.

I love using creative coaching techniques to really tap into my clients’ subconscious and intuitive streak.

I speak French and Spanish and can conduct coaching sessions in those languages too if need be.

My style is a mix between structured and "flowy"; very intuitive, I like to use creative techniques (visualisations etc); challenging and supportive

Helen Burgess

Cheshire based, offering face to face coaching in Manchester, Lancashire and North Wales. Skype coaching available countrywide.

I specialise in coaching individuals at pivotal moments in their career; enabling them to grow their confidence, expand their skills and build their resilience to thrive, rather than just survive through transition.

I offer a range of coaching options, from one off help as a ‘thinking partner’ to a programme over several months that offers a deep personal ‘exploration’, using psychometrics and neuroscience to uncover your strengths and values. At the end of the coaching programme you will have gained clarity in your thinking and a focused action plan that you feel confident, excited and energised to move forward. The first consultation to examine what you are drawn to (or are being driven from) is always free.

My career coaching is ideal for:
• Mid-career professionals who are successful but not fulfilled in their current role
• New graduates looking for career direction
• Men or women returning to work after a career break

London, UK
  • Personal Coaching
  • Careers Coaching
  • Youth Coaching
  • Executive Coaching
  • Relationship Coaching

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.

Richard Cook

London, UK

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.

 

Obi James

London, UK

I coach mid- and senior-level professionals in the corporate sector (predominantly financial services), helping them to position their personal brand, successfully navigate their networks and expand career possibilities.

My coaching approach draws from:

a) Latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create an understanding of how coaching impacts neuroplasticity and helps build the psychological skills needed to support lasting change.

b) Systemic Thinking to help senior professionals, executives and business leaders to look beyond individual development to find solutions which also benefit the wider systems they're part of.

c) My strong corporate experience in senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational organisations. This means my coaching approach is tailored to factor in pressures and constraints that come with leadership responsibility in these organisations.

Kelly Campino

Switzerland

I’m a certified and ICF credentialed coach and offer tailor-made coaching packages to support women with their work-related challenges. My expertise lies in the areas of career transition, work-life balance, challenges within the workplace and life coaching.

I offer an open and authentic approach and am committed to doing my absolute best to support my clients in achieving their goals. I apply positive psychology to every coaching session, utilising my clients' strengths and encouraging a focus on solutions.

Geraldine Locke

London and Global via Zoom or Skype

I specialise in mature career changers looking to make end of career decisions, and moving to a portfolio approach to life, pre-retirement. I coach both one-to-one, with couples and in groups.

I have a down-to-earth, common sense approach to coaching. I use a strengths based approach to helping clients facilitate their journey of self discovery, and help clients to be open minded and practical when facing the choices in front of them.

Elizabeth Houghton

Australia (Coach via zoom for UK)

Career coaching for high achievers to pursue non-traditional life and career paths without guilt.

You come from a traditional background, which comes with so many gifts, but usually also means that your life path - what you studied, who you dated, what you do for a living - was clearly mapped out from birth. And if you deviated form that path, you were hit with So. Much. Guilt.

So you got high grades. You went to good schools. You embarked on an impressive, steady career - one of those jobs that is always in high-demand (because of security).

But your life, as it stands, doesn't make you happy. You're wondering: 'Is this it? Is this all there is?' And something inside you says 'No. There's got to be more'.

Maybe you know what “more” looks like and you need support to pursue it (because there will be pushback).

Or maybe you don’t quite know what you want to do, what your passions are, what path will make you feel fulfilled - you just know that your current path isn’t working for you.

Maria Smart

London, Surrey, Sussex

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.

Dan Beverly

London, UK

Hi. My name’s Dan Beverly and I’m a Leadership & Performance Coach. And very simply: I help professional women achieve their highest potential.

And for some of my clients that plays-out as a new job or promotion. For others, it’s about a complete shift in career or business. Whilst for others, it’s just about excelling in who they are and what they do.

But what unites all my clients is that they come to me at a pivotal moment in their careers. A moment that will really define their success – and their path for the next 5 – 10 years.

And in that pivotal moment, I inspire my clients to play full out.

Because there’s only ever one challenge for us all. Being more of who we already are. And so, my leadership coaching approach revolves strongly around the 3 core themes of: Reinvention + Creativity + Ownership
