Licensed Firework coaches

Graham Tate

I coach face to face across the UK and I am based in Herefordshire

All aspects of business, personal and behavioral coaching. I work across all sectors with a mix of gender and role/position in the organisation.

As a career coach I can help you to create the working life that you really want. I work with a wide range of individuals, ranging from those just starting out in the workplace, through returners to the work, to those who are looking for more career satisfaction.

My coaching style is collaborative. I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which you will feel at ease and together we can identify your strengths and passions to create a career you will love. We will look at barriers and create a road-map that will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.

How we work together will be led by you; we can work within a structured programme or take a more flexible approach.

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.

Ana Paula Nacif

Kent & London

I am an experienced coach and personal development trainer who works with individuals on career progression and leadership. I work with middle and senior managers in the public and not-for profit sectors.

My coaching style is insightful, challenging, intuitive, encouraging, direct and energetic. By creating an atmosphere of trust, I am able to challenge comfort zones and tap into the resourcefulness of my clients with clarity. Clients say that I am a dynamic and insightful coach who is not afraid to push the boundaries to support my clients to achieve their full potential.

Susanne Schwameis

Austria

I work with driven corporate professionals in their late 20s to early 40s who are brilliant at what they do and want to take the next step in their career. Whether this be getting a promotion, improving leadership skills, boosting your work performance, getting a well deserved salary raise or changing career direction completely.

I have spent over 10 years working as an executive in investment banking and leaving the corporate environment to launch my coaching business, which gives me a unique perspective on the challenges professionals are facing within companies today and how to build a thriving career within organizations as well as what it takes to successfully change careers.

Monika Larini

Estonia (face to face coaching) and worldwide clients online

Many encourage people to step out of their comfort zone. I rather believe that people should make unknown situations more pleasant and interesting by expanding the boundaries of their present world.

It is indeed a matter of point of view: a career coach helps you find different perspectives on your work life that allow you to transform your initial conundrum into new inspiring beginnings, choose concrete actions amidst an overwhelming range of possibilities, and let your initial fear of the unknown turn into curiosity about what you will soon discover.

My coaching style has developed through the interaction between professional academic education and working in predominantly creative environments.

As a coach, I can be more supportive of those who see work as self-fulfilment and a strong part of their personal identity than just a way of earning a living.

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.

 

Kate Cusack

Brighton, East Sussex, UK

I am a Life and Career Coach, based in Brighton, UK. I work 1:1 with clients locally, or with clients from all over the world using telephone or Skype.

I work with anyone who feels they would like more meaning and fulfilment from their career, but isn’t exactly sure what that career is, or how to get there. I get huge satisfaction from helping clients go from confusion to clarity on which direction to take in their career, to achieve true happiness and satisfaction from their work.

I love working with the Firework Programme because it uses unique and varied exercises to uncover who you are and what really makes you tick, so you can address the question of what career is really right for you, based on an in-depth awareness of what you need to be truly happy, both in your life and your career.

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.

Felicity Dwyer

Hampshire, UK

I specialise in helping people find a way through mid-life career review and change.

We might be a good fit, if you are in one of these situations:

  • Facing redundancy and wanting to rebuild your confidence or review your choices.
  • Out of love with your work; you want to do something else, but don’t yet know what.
  • Considering self-employment or starting a business; you want to do something you enjoy, have more freedom and make a living.
  • Returning to work after time at home with children or as a carer.
  • You want to get clarity about your next steps and regain your confidence.

What my clients say about my coaching style:

Ruth Starsmeare

Wiltshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Dorset

I specialise in career change coaching for Teachers looking to leave the classroom.

I offer 1:1 coaching sessions either face to face or using Zoom that will take you through a structured approach, so that you can figure out your life and career goals, your values and your motivations and understand what gives you energy. Alongside your skills and experience, we will look at what that means in terms of career options and we'll develop an action plan to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be.

In addition, I offer Career Change Workshops designed to take you through that structured approach in a one day intensive group session.  These will be face to face in various locations in the Wessex area.  See my website for the latest dates/venues.
