Licensed Firework coaches

Lisa Westbury

I have an office in Brighton, East Sussex and can meet up in central London

I work with professional women who want to make more of a difference in their careers or better use their creativity at work.

This could be at any stage in your career – it might be the first time you've intentionally considered matching your career with your motivations, purpose and talents – or when you are at a key transition point such as maternity or starting a business. You might want to step into a new challenge such as leadership, or use skills that you have not previously used at work.

I also help business partnerships and teams to work more productively together, understanding how to play to each other's strengths and make better use of your diversity.

I have a warm and approachable style, creating a safe space for clients to stretch into their talents and explore their range. I enjoy working creatively and with intuition, building a strong alliance with clients, encouraging them to recognise their strengths and build the confidence to work through challenges.

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.

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.

Ross Nichols

Salisbury, UK

I specialise in coaching professionals in transition to find a successful new career, business or life; integrated wellness coaching and business coaching and mentoring for start-ups, the self-employed and micro, small and medium sized businesses.

I work with values, energy, vitality and spirit. For those who want more structure, I offer structured programmes. Integrated wellness coaching combines dimensions of wellness into a quality way of living through a personal wellness plan. Key words for me are 'transformation' and 'healing'.

Ella Clark

Cornwall

I coach people who are at a career turning point and looking for what to do next. I will help you find what type of work lights you up, and help you plan to get the rights skills and confidence to get there. To really love your life, and the work that you do.

Geraldine Locke

London and Global via Zoom or Skype

I specialise in mature career changers looking to make end of career decisions, and moving to a portfolio approach to life, pre-retirement. I coach both one-to-one, with couples and in groups.

I have a down-to-earth, common sense approach to coaching. I use a strengths based approach to helping clients facilitate their journey of self discovery, and help clients to be open minded and practical when facing the choices in front of them.

Aurelia Rogalli

Richmond, Surrey, UK

As an entrepreneur and new mum, I specialise in career coaching and personal development for management level (5-15 years work experience) as well as mothers returning to work after maternity break. Most of my clients have a corporate background and are looking for more fulfilment, either through a career change or through a side project in their life.

I am calm, intuitive, challenging and direct. I expect hard work from my clients so they can make the most of our sessions and move forward in their careers.

 

Lydia Newell

Yorkshire, UK

I support women through mid-life career change as they start reconsidering their priorities and direction.

For the women who feel stuck ...You’ve tried to focus on the positives. Other people would describe you as ‘successful’, but this isn’t your definition of success. You know you have loads to be grateful for, but you just can’t get past the fact that you’re not content with how your life looks right now.

You wake up every morning feeling exhausted, wishing it was the weekend. Your days are full-on busy, your to-do list is never ending, and self-care just doesn’t happen for you.

You feel unhappy, uninspired and unmotivated. Living in a world that tells you that ‘you can be whatever you want to be’, feels so overwhelming when you’re stuck on what it is you want to be! You’re not sure what you want from life, and you have no idea how to find out.

Nick Harris

Suffolk

Do you find yourself at a crossroads? Are you still looking to secure that dream job or are you facing important choices about the direction your working life will take? How should you deal with workplace challenges or find the right balance between work and family? How would you feel if you had a more satisfying and rewarding career?

I have coached a variety of individuals in areas like career development, promotion, coping with redundancy, making a career change, managing anxiety or stress and those returning to work after a career break.

Very often I speak to people who are miserable in their job or are unhappy with where they are, but they don’t know what to do, and they don’t see that they have choices. The initial focus for the coaching is therefore often around building confidence in order to create options.

I can then help you to reconnect with your strengths, expertise and capabilities because often people can lose sight of what they’ve achieved in the past when a job has become unsatisfying.
