Licensed Firework coaches

Felicity Dwyer

Hampshire, UK

I specialise in helping people find a way through mid-life career review and change.

We might be a good fit, if you are in one of these situations:

  • Facing redundancy and wanting to rebuild your confidence or review your choices.
  • Out of love with your work; you want to do something else, but don’t yet know what.
  • Considering self-employment or starting a business; you want to do something you enjoy, have more freedom and make a living.
  • Returning to work after time at home with children or as a carer.
  • You want to get clarity about your next steps and regain your confidence.

What my clients say about my coaching style:

Marie Smith

Dorset, UK

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) who is energised by working with clients who are passionate about living their lives ‘on purpose’, aligned with personal values, making a difference in their own lives and also in the lives of  others. Or, if clients are not currently doing this, they wish to, and are intent on changing and moving forwards.

Specialisms Include: Leadership coaching and executive development - transitions and change, personal leadership, personal and team performance, resilience and career development/transitions. 

I am a leadership coach and executive development specialist working with senior people, CEO’s and business owners. I typically work with clients who are experiencing (or anticipating) the following situations:

• a crossroads in life, either in their career or private life, or both e.g. feeling jaded with their current role and wanting a new challenge or may have an unexpected opportunity to do something different

Gayl Long

Berkshire, United Kingdom

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.

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.

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.

Becky Kilsby

Exeter (UK) and via Skype or Zoom calls for other locations

As a qualified career practitioner with experience in the UK and Dubai, I coach professionals who have reached a natural hiatus in their career, especially women returning to paid employment after a break, expats in transition to new locations, and 'escapees' wanting to explore a second or third more fulfilling career direction. I've developed 3 successful careers over 3 decades and across 2 continents, so I understand change and how to re-design life to match how we evolve over time.

As a career change coach I'm approachable, creative and focused. With a positive and global outlook, I love helping clients ignite their values, recognise their achievements and purpose to re-design the life and work in which they can thrive.

Amy Savage

London

I work with a range of people, many of which are from the creative industries given my background. Most importantly I work with people from all ages and backgrounds who want to live their lives to the fullest and are committed to making a change. These include:

  • People who are looking to find more fulfilment and enjoyment in the life/career.
  • People who want to consider a career change
  • Women returning to work after maternity leave, a career break or a change in career direction

I have been described as warm, enlightening, and inspirational, but I'm also prepared to challenge habitual and obstructive behaviour or thought processes. I have the skills to tackle issues in a positive and productive way. And mostly, I have a passionate belief that work should be a fulfilling and enriching part of our lives.

Charlotte Whalley

Richmond, Central London and South West London

I work with all kinds of people but mostly they are professional women looking for that extra 10%, or to find more balance and happiness.

Often I work with women in leadership (or those who are seeking to grow into leadership roles) accompanying and helping them grow and excel, and also those who reached a crossroads and perhaps want to take a new path.

I love helping women to take decisions with confidence and stop second guessing themselves.

I am a warm and happy person with a positive outlook on life. I am a qualified Animas Transformational Life Coach and a Firework Career Coach. My background is 15 years in international business where I've held global leadership roles. I have lived and worked in Thailand, Australia, Singapore, Paris and London which has given me wonderful experiences of working with different people and cultures.

I am passionate about helping people to find their purpose, become happier and more fulfilled.

Hazel Martin

London

Based in SW London, UK, I work with SW or Central  London face to face as well as UK and worldwide clients virtually including Skype. Typically, I coach individuals in their 40s from the technology, financial, not for profit and charity sectors. 

I help those who feel lost, confused, or stuck in a job they no longer enjoy and who want to make a change but don't know where to start, or what to do instead and who want a career that is meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful. 

Hazel offers a comprehensive, structured career change coaching process, specifically designed to help you get really clear on what your ideal career would be so that you:

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.
