Licensed Firework coaches

Anna Colebourne

London and Surrey

I specialise in career transition, using the Firework programme to help individuals figure out what their dream job is and how to get there. With 20 years experience in coaching, I am passionate about helping people achieve career satisfaction and success, enabling them to discover their natural strengths, and be in harmony with their talents, values, visions and goals.

My bespoke coaching is designed to overcome self-limiting beliefs, help people perform at a higher level and achieve their goals faster. I challenge my clients to help them understand what they really want from a career, and to help them follow through with the changes they commit to.

I also work with individuals who want to improve their performance at work, achieve a promotion, increase their confidence or get back on their feet after redundancy.

Richard Cook

London, UK

I specialise in coaching individuals around their careers and relationships. I work with individuals looking to make important shifts in their lives - whether in their work life or their personal life - or both! I work with senior leaders to effectively manage priorities and deadlines, achieve optimal work/life balance, communicate and build stronger relationships with bosses, peers and direct reports, level-up their emotional intelligence, strengthen their executive presence, and illuminate "blind spots" in their behaviour affecting their impact and advancement.

I design your coaching with you in a way that addresses your unique strengths, abilities, life experiences, challenges and blind spots so that you can discover and realise what you are longing to make happen in your life. I am known for my emotional honesty with clients and will ask those challenging questions at the heart of the matter - yet do it gently and with respect.

Lisa Russell

Berkshire

Coaching for mid-career women feeling unfulfilled at work.

I'm a warm and friendly coach who loves to bring a sense of playful curiosity to all my coaching sessions.

I specialise in working with people who are unhappy at work. I can help you get unstuck, freed up and moving towards work you can't wait to get out of bed for. I use tools from the Firework programme as part of an action-based programme to help you get clear on what lights you up, what work you want to do, and how you're going to get there. And I can help you bring a sense of play to the journey, so that you can get there faster, and lighter.

Maria Smart

London, Surrey, Sussex

I work with people who find themselves at transition points in their careers. This includes exploring career direction and supporting managers and leaders to develop their management, leadership and business skills so they can progress in their chosen career.  While the backgrounds and career paths may vary the golden thread is they all want to be fulfilled in their work and are committed to making a change.
I work with:
• People seeking to explore a change in career direction
• First time managers
• People who have stepped from management into a leadership position
• People wanting to develop key skills
I am passionate about helping others realise their potential, develop and succeed in their chosen career, afterall we spend too much time at work not to be happy.

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.

Kat Atherton

London, UK

I coach individuals who are on the hunt for more fulfiling work. I offer a structured and holistic approach to help clients understand who they are and what they want as well as a process for generating new career options. Encouraging clients to push themselves beyond their comfort zone to discover opportunities and generate new perspectives is the heart of what I do.

I'm based in London but offer sessions via Zoom – many of my clients are based overseas. Typically we'll work together on a weekly basis for a minimum of 3 months.

Monica Mundo

UK London and Italy

I work with professionals in their 30s – 40s who are currently going through a career change, promotion or recently relocated.

Usually people start their career in their early twenties and think that they will remain on the same path for all of their life, progressing and achieving always higher goals.

Discovering the desire to change career, might lead to deep feelings of loss and demotivation, self-doubt, fears and identity issues.

My experience of living and working in corporate London means I fully understand the context of my client’s challenges; beside my coaching qualification I'm also a qualified Strengths Practitioner and I provide sessions solely based on career development.

A career change could mean anything from starting a new job, completely changing sector, becoming an entrepreneur and setting up a business, or simply discovering the concept of a portfolio career and intrapreneurship and adjusting your career accordingly.

Barbara Greenway

London

My business experience and coaching focus is very much on personal and organisational development and the corresponding change management processes, and on delivering coaching interventions to improve resilience, performance and leadership capability. I also specialises in coaching individuals to develop an authentic leadership presence, particularly those moving from middle to senior management or into a Board level role.

I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which clients feel at ease and able to be honest about how they are feeling about their work and their lives. I bring wisdom and kindness into the space, letting in the light that enables clients to tap into their own authentic resourcefulness and to create a better future for themselves.

Sarah Gonzalez

London, England

I work primarily with clients who are in a career transition. I tackle each stage of the career transition process, from creating professional goals; to working toward a promotion or into a new position; to completing a 180 degree career shift. I am also a mum of twins and work directly with Mums who are struggling with both career transition and embracing their newfound identities.

I take a practical and grounded approach during my coaching sessions and believe that we are ultimately one of our own best resources in deciding our next steps. Through support in identifying our unique values and resources we are able to work through both professional and personal issues, which are often closely linked.
