Licensed Firework coaches

Olivia Woods

Berkshire, London & Dublin

Career coaching for senior executives wanting to consider a complete change of career.

Entrepreneurs wanting to be more focussed and organised in their heads so that they can achieve their great ideas rather than letting their ideas slip through their fingers.

Prospective clients wanting to build up their confidence.

A silver fist in a velvet glove would be an accurate description of my working style...I hold a clean space for deep thinking and then agree accountability with the client. This accountability then becomes the focus of our good work together. I'm a skilled motivator and have been referred to as a 'motivational defribilator'.

After many years experience as a senior recruitment consultant I quickly understand what a client is capable of, which is frequently more than they see for themselves.

Nathalie Britten

Surrey and London

My clients range from new managers to senior executives and are based all over the world. what they have in common is that they are professionals who are or have a strong desire to transition into a new role, new company or brand new career.

"Nathalie’s frank but positive and non-judgemental approach leads to conversations that are sometimes painfully honest but ultimately empowering and action-focused."

A comment received from a client recently says it all about my style. I believe in empowering my clients to be themselves always in all circumstances.

Sally May

East Sussex

I help mid-senior level people in the corporate world get clearer on who they are and what they really want in life, and then coach them as they make it a reality. I also work with forward-thinking organisations who wish to retain their talented employees and harness their renewed energy and ideas to boost the organisation’s social/environmental impact.

I'm firm and supportive. I gained a strong understanding of the corporate world working for Accenture for 18 years in Paris and London. A recent coaching client told me that I have a “serene calm energy”, and am “passionate but not in-your-face gushy!”. There were moments where they felt “uncomfortable but supported”, and the result was that they experienced a number of shifts, concluding “It was way more powerful than I thought it would be. I’ve always said ‘it will all be OK’. Now I believe it”.

Gareth Banner

Based in Surrey, UK. I work with London based as well as UK and worldwide clients via Skype.

I coach across the management spectrum and enjoy engaging with those in line for promotion or who have just been promoted. I have coached senior leaders in schools.

With many year's experience of Government service and having navigated my way through career transition, I have a deep interest in helping and supporting all individuals leaving the Armed Forces, Police, Civil Service and other uniformed services.

I am interested in personal and professional career development and change. My style is authentic, engaging, non-judgemental and totally supportive. With a focus entirely on the individual, I will encourage but also challenge appropriately when it is needed. My interest is my clients' interest.

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.

Jill Walker

Ireland

I specialise in coaching two groups of people - CEOs, founders and C suite executives who want more meaning or balance in their lives or who want to use their talents in a different way. 

I also work with high achieving, hard working women who know they are holding themselves back in some way in their work or their life. I help you bring out the kick ass woman in you and help you achieve what you REALLY want from your "one wild and precious life" (Mary Oliver, poet).

Duncan Muller

London, UK (west or central)

I unlock the potential of individuals and teams in creative industries. They’re ambitious, enthusiastic, fun, open-minded and curious. They want to make things better for themselves and are committed to change. And that’s why I love working with them.

Career Coaching - helps people find their new career direction, overcome what’s holding their career back. They have clarity on what’s next and how to get there. They enjoy more fulfilling careers.

Leadership Coaching - shifts leaders from micro-managers to big picture, system-aware leaders. They show more self-awareness, interact effectively, motivate better, and have more conscious leadership.

Team Coaching - transforms teams into high-performing teams. They show more positivity and increased productivity, they trust more, there’s more constructive debate. There’s also more commitment, accountability and attention on team results.

Lisa Russell

Berkshire

Coaching for mid-career women feeling unfulfilled at work.

I'm a warm and friendly coach who loves to bring a sense of playful curiosity to all my coaching sessions.

I specialise in working with people who are unhappy at work. I can help you get unstuck, freed up and moving towards work you can't wait to get out of bed for. I use tools from the Firework programme as part of an action-based programme to help you get clear on what lights you up, what work you want to do, and how you're going to get there. And I can help you bring a sense of play to the journey, so that you can get there faster, and lighter.

Phil Richards

Hampshire

My coaching specialisms are:-

  • Career transitions
  • Planning and preparing for expatriate secondments and repatriation
  • Career-life interactions

I offer a space within which you are able to share, explore and develop action plans for the career opportunities or challenges that you face, based on a trusted and confidential relationship. I have personally experienced the highs and lows of the career cycle across professional and financial services organisations, the impact it can have on other domains of life and the importance of maintaining perspective and well-being. The decisions will always be yours to make; my role is to ask the right questions to help make your decisions as informed as possible.

Beverley Acton

London, UK

I offer the Firework career coaching programme to individuals who are ready to make a transition and committed to change but for whatever reason are experiencing a block.

My bespoke coaching services attract clients who want to achieve personal goals in order to lead a more fulfilling life. When I work with someone in this way we create a plan tailored to their needs and aspirations.

I have a varied client base because I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for a long time in different sectors. A lot of my work comes from my network and referrals.
