Licensed Firework coaches

Barbara Greenway

London

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.

Fiona Reith

I combine design thinking and coaching to support innovative professionals through exciting transitions.

My coaching style is open, warm and creative. Clients say they find sessions with me inspiring and energising.

Monika Larini

Estonia (face to face coaching) and worldwide clients online

Many encourage people to step out of their comfort zone. I rather believe that people should make unknown situations more pleasant and interesting by expanding the boundaries of their present world.

It is indeed a matter of point of view: a career coach helps you find different perspectives on your work life that allow you to transform your initial conundrum into new inspiring beginnings, choose concrete actions amidst an overwhelming range of possibilities, and let your initial fear of the unknown turn into curiosity about what you will soon discover.

My coaching style has developed through the interaction between professional academic education and working in predominantly creative environments.

As a coach, I can be more supportive of those who see work as self-fulfilment and a strong part of their personal identity than just a way of earning a living.

Manjula Bray

South East Wales, UK

Career / leadership coaching and judicial appointments for solicitors.

Eclectic and evidence-based coaching psychologist e.g. I have used psychometric tools to provide evidence of return on coaching investment and as an ex-HR practitioner/trainer and assessment centre specialist/independent lay panel member, I have insight into selection processes to help candidates succeed at job interviews of all types.

Monica Mundo

UK London and Italy

I work with professionals in their 30s – 40s who are currently going through a career change, promotion or recently relocated.

Usually people start their career in their early twenties and think that they will remain on the same path for all of their life, progressing and achieving always higher goals.

Discovering the desire to change career, might lead to deep feelings of loss and demotivation, self-doubt, fears and identity issues.

My experience of living and working in corporate London means I fully understand the context of my client’s challenges; beside my coaching qualification I'm also a qualified Strengths Practitioner and I provide sessions solely based on career development.

A career change could mean anything from starting a new job, completely changing sector, becoming an entrepreneur and setting up a business, or simply discovering the concept of a portfolio career and intrapreneurship and adjusting your career accordingly.

Gillian McDonagh

Kent, London and the South East

We spend a high proportion of our waking hours at work and I believe that this should be both enjoyable and rewarding. With a focus on excellent performance I work with my clients to identify and apply the best version of themselves, regularly and consistently.

My clients range from graduates looking to be sure of which direction to take, promising talent dissatisfied or frustrated in their current role, returning mothers seeking to build confidence and find work that supports their life as a whole to people who have been in the same employment for over 20 years and are now considering a complete change in direction.

I use the Firework Programme as an opportunity to stop and take stock of who you are, what’s important to you and how you can best reflect this in your work. This may well results in a complete change of direction but it can also lead to simply redesigning a current role – or even looking closely at how you turn up at work and how to get the most from it.

Helen Collins

Berkshire, UK

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.

Jessica Farrell

London

I specialise in creative leadership, team and career development. I work primarily with leaders and managers in the creative industries, having spent the first 18 years of my own career working in creative, media and technology companies.

My special interests lie in supporting leaders and teams navigating high pressure and fast changing environments, managing challenging relationships and stress. We might focus on developing self awareness and calibrating your impact, managing energy and priorities, maintaining confidence and resilience or work/life balance.

Clients often come to me at a turning point in their career - planning a new direction, a promotion and increased responsibility, navigating peak delivery time, leading a new team or leading organisational changes.

Päivi Elovaara

Finland

Typically I coach career changers who are looking for more meaning to their working life, and who want to live better according to their own values.

According to my clients my coaching is warm, friendly and respectful, and still strongly forward leading. With me it is easy to look inside to find out one's own strengths and to gain more courage to take the steps needed towards the goals.
