Licensed Firework coaches

Anna Colebourne

London and Surrey

I specialise in career transition, using the Firework programme to help individuals figure out what their dream job is and how to get there. With 20 years experience in coaching, I am passionate about helping people achieve career satisfaction and success, enabling them to discover their natural strengths, and be in harmony with their talents, values, visions and goals.

My bespoke coaching is designed to overcome self-limiting beliefs, help people perform at a higher level and achieve their goals faster. I challenge my clients to help them understand what they really want from a career, and to help them follow through with the changes they commit to.

I also work with individuals who want to improve their performance at work, achieve a promotion, increase their confidence or get back on their feet after redundancy.

Britta Siggelkow

London

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.”

Vance Frisch

Yorkshire, UK

Want to be in a career where your talents soar? What's stopping you?

Lots of people are doing jobs they should've left long ago. Trapped by their pay-check, bills, commitments. Unsure of how to change.

When you invest in coaching, you want a real difference in your professional life. You want financial freedom, and abetter way of living. Work you enjoy, find interesting and exciting. Working with people you like, trust and admire.

Why settle for a default future?

I've worked in Human Resources and Reward for many years. Met lots of people who were unhappy in their work. Even at C-level. Not progressing, not learning, underpaid, stuck. Not doing meaningful work. Wishing they were living their 'magnificent obsession'.

We work together on understanding your real professional identity. And making changes that work for you. I support you with pivoting to work you love.

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.

Alice Davies

East Sussex & London

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.

Anne Gelebart

Amsterdam

I help individuals who want a successful and fulfilling career whilst having time for their family and friends (Professionals looking for a meaningful career or for their next step, Professionals looking for a better work life balance, Trailing spouse looking for a career change or looking for a job).

I am an empathetic & open-minded coach, and I can sometimes be confronting. My coachees say they came out with practical lifetime tools to help them move forward, they also feel that their focus has increased and that their self-awareness has grown tremendously. This has often resulted in a promotion or a visible impact on their peers’ interactions.

Sarah Hardman

Based in Oxted, Surrey. Work with London based, UK-wide and overseas clients

My specialty is working with experienced professionals who are at a mid-life or career crossroads who are re-evaluating what they want from their careers and who want a coach to partner with to reconnect them with their strengths, talents and motivations - and to find (or reignite) their professional “mojo”. Some clients already know that they are ready to make a change whilst others simply want to explore the options or make positive changes in their careers. I also work with professionals who are in the latter part of their career who are considering what it is they want for the final furlong of their working lives.

Clients tell me that I’m approachable and upbeat, work creatively and intuitively, balancing a sense of fun with positive challenge whilst creating a supportive and encouraging environment which brings out the best in people.

Jo Ball

Devon - particularly in the South Hams, Totnes, Dartmouth, Dartington, Ashburton, Newton Abbot, Exeter and Plymouth.

I work predominantly with people who want to make a positive difference in their lives and for those around them. I often work with creatives, people from a social care or voluntary sector background, changemakers and those interested in carving their own path.

I offer 1-1 coaching for mothers and also offer Firework for mothers returning to work.

In addition, I specialise in working with people who want to develop their inner resources to sustain themselves whilst creating external change.

My style is warm, collaborative, intuitive, flexible and creative. I love to work in-depth so, alongside your plan for a future career, you have the opportunity to develop practices and strategies that will support you as you step into your future. Getting the right balance of challenge and support can make a huge difference as you work towards a career transition so we work together to ensure this.

Stephanie Smith

Thames Valley & London

I work with intelligent, experienced professionals from IT, Finance, Utilities, Telecoms, Engineering, Law and Higher Education who feel stuck and want to change how they feel about work and its place in their lives.

My clients describe me as intuitive, insightful and warm as well as gently challenging and thought-provoking. My focus is to offer an environment where clients can develop their understanding and appreciation of themselves and have the confidence to make decisions either in or outside work.
