Kori believes that work should be fun, fulfilling and rewarding.
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.

I offer bespoke executive coaching both face-to-face and remotely in central London, and internationally for Board Directors, Partners of Professional Service Firms, Senior Leaders and their Teams. Typically, I work with individuals at a point of personal or professional transition: newly promoted leaders; executives returning to work after extended absence or at a point of inflection where there are signs of a pattern of declining leadership/managerial performance.
I normally start with an assessment tool which enables me to tailor my approach to you and your situation. I draw on my learning and development background and business and coaching experience to meet you at your level, challenge you to move beyond your comfort zone in order to help you succeed.
I specialise in coaching professionals in their 20s and 30s who are unhappy or unfulfilled in their current career and want to do more meaningful, rewarding and impactful work that fits them better.
You may be working in a job that looks great on paper, yet you feel deeply disappointed with how your career has turned out. You're optimistic that there must be a brighter alternative.
If you're feeling completely stuck for ideas, unsure what new career would be right for you, or you don't know where to start in the process of changing career, I'm here to help. Through my 12-session Career Change Programme, you'll discover a new career to pursue with confidence and excitement, an action plan to get you there, and a deep understanding of yourself to inform future career decisions.
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.
My mission is simple. I want to help successful people achieve positive and lasting change for themselves and those they interact with. Whether I am working with individuals or teams, I support people to truly live and work with passion and enjoyment, building genuine connections that not only benefit workplace performance but have a positive impact in all aspects of their lives. With over a decade of experience supporting people to overcome limiting beliefs and reach their full potential, I do this because I want to create a ripple that not only changes the lives of those that I coach, but also inspires those around them.
“Nathalie played an integral role in my career change and without her I truly believe that I would not be where I am today. Her bubbly personality and eagerness to go the extra mile really made my dealings with her a true pleasure. I felt that she really cared about me and my success. Nathalie is a very special person and I highly recommend her”.
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.
I support people to feel good about themselves and to create lives that they actually like.
I help them learn to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, to expand their self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-belief and self-trust in order to live more bravely and create more joy and satisfaction in their lives, both at work and at home.
I work with individuals who are experiencing self-doubts, over-thinking, over-working, second guessing, worrying about what everyone else thinks, feeling held back, frustrated, stuck and generally dissatisfied in their careers and lives.
My clients have mostly been early and mid-career professionals but have also included students, musicians, sole business owners and returners after a career break.
