Licensed Firework coaches

Christine Butenuth

London, UK

My coaching emphasis is targeted to individuals with undergraduate and higher degrees especially in science, engineering, mathematics and medicine who wish to use their undoubted intelligence and experience for "enterprises" that require an acumen and insight they have not had to develop either during their degree or during their career. This can include assisting them to develop their own business based on their personal strengths.

I like to have an open conversation with clients to help them help themselves, giving them the benefit of my experience along the way and encouraging them to think logically as distinct from "romantically" about their aspirations and potential, not forgetting the resources (personal or otherwise) upon which they can draw.

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.

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.

Alison Roux

London

I specialise in career transition for senior and mid-level executives. My clients are usually at a point of transition, professional or personal: newly promoted or aspiring to promotion and looking for help with professional development or performance improvement; at a career crossroads and wanting to explore professional or lifestyle options; moving to the end of their careers but looking for a change rather than retirement. An MBA graduate, with a strong business background, I draw upon extensive experience as a leadership development consultant across a range of industries, working internationally and multi-culturally. I work with individuals to renew their sense of self and build on their strengths so they can move forward with clarity and confidence.

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.

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.

Claire Mackenzie

London, UK

I'm a Career Transition Coach working with professionals at a crossroads who feel lost to find the work they love to do and create the life they want on their terms. Whether
you are going through a major work or life transition, seeking career inspiration, a change of direction, or just want to be more effective in your current role, I have a career coaching approach to help you do the work you love and fulfil your potential.

I am an intuitive coach who is empathetic, open and compassionate. I create a safe space for you to explore deeper into your beliefs, values and purpose. I really see you, I’ll challenge your blind spots and the things that are holding you back. Without judgement I am your cheerleader and champion, highlighting your strengths and nurturing you through your own transformation

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.
