Licensed Firework coaches

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.

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.

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

Anna Weissenberg

Budapest, Hungary

I coach people who are mid career and looking for a change. I specialise in coaching people who work in an international environment or have moved internationally in their career.

I am an empathetic and friendly coach who supports, motivates, and helps my clients gain confidence. I coach in English, Swedish and Finnish.

Mercedes Sancho

Madrid, Spain

Mi práctica de coaching de carrera se centra en ayudar a profesionales senior en procesos de cambio, voluntario o sobrevenido, que encuentran dificultad en concretar su objetivo, o en cómo avanzar hacia él. Personas que viven la necesidad de un cambio profesional por inquietud personal y deseos de crecer.

Acompaño a las personas en su proceso reflexivo con actitud positiva y con el propósito de ayudarlas a tomar conciencia de sus posibilidades y de lo que realmente es importante para ellas. Mi propuesta es un enfoque de trabajo estructurado y práctico, basado en la confianza y no en la dependencia, para que puedas tomar decisiones con seguridad y entusiasmo. Me apoyo en un método movilizador y en herramientas de utilidad contrastada, y en mi propia vivencia de transformación personal y profesional.

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.

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.

Leigh Jackson

London/Greater London (face to face coaching); rest of UK and world-wide (via Skype/Facetime).

My particular interest is in providing career and leadership coaching to introverts and "quiet" people who often find it difficult to be seen and heard in corporate environments. I have a corporate communications background, so I really enjoy supporting my clients to find their authentic voice, to develop their personal brand and to communicate with impact and confidence. I often work with people in the high-tech industries - that's also part of my background.

My clients tell me my coaching style is exhilarating, motivating and supportive! They get fired up and inspired as a consequence. When appropriate, I like to bring energy to a session and to support my clients in moving forward and taking action in their careers and in their communication styles. As a CTI co-active coach, however, I also like to be "in the moment" with my clients when required.

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.

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.”
