Licensed Firework coaches

Helen Burgess

Cheshire based, offering face to face coaching in Manchester, Lancashire and North Wales. Skype coaching available countrywide.

I specialise in coaching individuals at pivotal moments in their career; enabling them to grow their confidence, expand their skills and build their resilience to thrive, rather than just survive through transition.

I offer a range of coaching options, from one off help as a ‘thinking partner’ to a programme over several months that offers a deep personal ‘exploration’, using psychometrics and neuroscience to uncover your strengths and values. At the end of the coaching programme you will have gained clarity in your thinking and a focused action plan that you feel confident, excited and energised to move forward. The first consultation to examine what you are drawn to (or are being driven from) is always free.

My career coaching is ideal for:
• Mid-career professionals who are successful but not fulfilled in their current role
• New graduates looking for career direction
• Men or women returning to work after a career break

Claire Brown

Berkshire

I provide Career Change Coaching for professionals in their 30s and 40s and specialise in serving neurodiverse clients.

My approach is highly supportive and empathetic in nature whilst also very practical. As a former Occupational Therapist, I understand the impact of meaningful occupation on our whole lives and this holistic approach is woven throughout my practice.

Lindsay Wittenberg

London

I coach for development and transformation. I take psychological and systemic approaches, and aim to enable lasting change by going beyond what presents on the surface so that my clients achieve the results they want with confidence. My coaching approach is characterised by: a belief in the client’s potential; building on strengths; the importance of the coach-client relationship and the trust inherent in that; focus on the here and now through awareness and mindfulness (moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience, with no judgment); a holistic perspective; and a creative, experimental attitude. My clients speak of me as challenging and supportive, caring and tough, dynamic and deep, positive, warm and insightful.

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.

Marina Burton

London and Surrey

I believe everyone deserves to find their 'why' in life. I work with passionate, young professionals predominantly in their 20's and 30's to help them find fulfilling, meaningful work. This can mean helping you navigate a career change, developing your existing role, starting your own business or anything in between.

I offer a structured and comprehensive approach, enabling clients to understand what they want from their careers, what they're capable of, and an explorative process to discover new career pathways. We would typically work together over three to six months depending on the pace you feel comfortable with. I also offer bespoke programmes starting from six weeks.

Sessions typically take place online, but I also work face to face in the London & Surrey area.

Andrea Anderson

Brighton, Sussex & Central London

I specialise in working with people from creative, digital, fast paced, or entrepreneurial business backgrounds. People who may be:

• Successful but frustrated and unhappy in their current career
• Full of ideas but unsure how to make them happen
• Women who have become mothers, who want an autonomous and fulfilling career that allows them to live the life they want to live now.

My style as a coach is warm, intuitive, and, at times, direct. I encourage experimentation and action. This helps the people I work with realise their potential and affirm their confidence.

Una Murphy

London based

I have 14 years experience of safely navigating individuals and groups through the choppy seas of transition.  I support and partner with amongst others:

  • Mid level and senior executives considering a complete career change

  • Entrepreneurs embarking on a new business venture

  • Women returning to the workplace after a career break

  • Media practitioners wanting to get more of the creative work that gives them their spark

Clients come away from our work together having truly connected with what really matters to them and fully recognising the unique strengths that allow them to shine. This renewed sense of self gives them the clarity and motivation to positively manage change and move forward with confidence.

Vicki Marinker

London, UK

I support women to build brilliant and fulfilling careers. Knitting together an early PR career, with over 20 years in recruitment and more recently coaching, I help women find their true calling. I support women suffering from a loss of confidence at work, particularly women who have been overlooked for a promotion or have suffered from workplace bullying, to reclaim their confidence. This is my calling.

I mix co-active coaching training, which supports the whole person, with tools that dive deep into values and life purpose. I also use my recruitment consultancy experience to provide practical tools to prepare clients for the job search and to be the best possible candidate for their chosen career.

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.

Claire Bolsover

Kent, UK

As a career transition & life coach and hypnotherapist I work with individuals who
• feel stuck in their job/career, are no longer finding it fulfilling and don’t know how to change it; or 
• are facing the possibility of redundancy or changes at work are meaning that they are moving on but are not sure they want to jump into the same job again; or
• have had their “is this really it” moment realising they don’t want to continue on the same career path for another 20 years but don’t know how to step onto a different path.

This may be about making a total career change or it could be about tweaking what you currently do - where you work, who you work with etc - to make a meaningful change.

Often my clients notice a change in their wellbeing either at home/ work or both and know they want to change something.
