Own your career

Live and work in alignment with what truly matters to you

I provide highly customised career and leadership development coaching for mid-career professionals.

My coaching is holistic, recognizing that you can't separate your career identity from who you are as a person.
My approach is warm, compassionate, supportive, and I will go beyond the surface level to help you remove blocks and find solutions that are in alignment with your personal core strengths and values.

Examples of the things I help people with are:

• Career planning and figuring out your next career move • Applications and job interviews
• Authentic online personal branding • Preparing for media and podcast interviews
• Building career confidence and overcoming self doubt and impostor syndrome • Developing a positive mindset
• Uncovering and owning your authentic leadership style

I’ve worked with leaders in international organizations such as the UN, US-based private sector and non-profit organizations, as well as solopreneurs and founders.

Charting a path forward with job or career changes can be challenging, especially when there are obstacles in the way. If you can't see the way forward, or are struggling to balance competing priorities, I will help you unpack the various opportunities, challenges, and what might be holding you back, and help you make a plan so you can move forward with confidence.

Interviews can be daunting, whether they're for a job or a media appearance. The key is to prepare well and know how you want to come across. I have a proven track record of helping people perform well in high-stakes interviews. While I can't guarantee the outcome, I can help you prepare so you go into the interview feeling confident and ready.

Self doubt and impostor syndrome are all too common and often come from stories we have told ourselves or old beliefs that are no longer true. I use powerful, research-based coaching tools and techniques to help people see themselves and their futures in a new, more positive light. The more your inner confidence grows, the better you perform in all areas of work and life.

Coaching challenges us to expand our thinking, to see into our own blind spots, to examine our assumptions and to discover new insights that were hidden in plain sight.

I have 20+ year's professional experience in coaching, journalism, and training. I thrive on having variety in my work, connecting with people, and making an impact. I am also part of a dual career expatriate couple and have relocated several times internationally over the course of my career.

As someone who has experienced several career and cross-cultural transitions, and has found coaching and the tools I have learned to be hugely beneficial in my own journey, I would love to support you as you grow (or pivot) your career.

My journey into coaching started 5 years ago. I went back to school and studied for an MBA in Coaching, Mentoring and Leadership. Then I delved deeper and became a Certified Professional Coach, a Certified Career Coach, and a Certified Executive Coach. I studied theories of leadership, positive psychology, brain science, and personal development, and I have built a deep repertoire of evidence-based coaching tools while building my coaching practice.

Continuous learning is important to me and I follow the rigorous professional and ethical standards of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). And because I believe in the power of coaching, I regularly work with my own coach to continue to fast track my personal and business growth.

I believe everyone should have a coach. I would love to be yours.

What is coaching?

Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional, or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals. (see https://coachingfederation.org)

What should I expect from a coaching session?

You should expect an engaging conversation in full support of your goals. I will help you explore your goals, obstacles, and options, and develop an action plan that feels right for you. I follow the ICF Code of Ethics and you can rest assured that everything we talk about within a session is treated as strictly private and confidential. 

What's the difference between coaching, therapy and consulting?

Coaching is positive and forward looking, and focuses on what the client is capable of when at their best, while therapy may dwell on past events and negative experiences. A coach may inquire about a client's emotions, but does not diagnose or treat psychological conditions. Coaching and therapy both emphasize client autonomy, by encouraging the client to discover their own solutions, whereas a consultant may give concrete advice and direction. A consultant will focus more on practical solutions to a problem rather than on the client as a person.

Where did you get your qualifications?

My MBA in Coaching, Mentoring and Leadership is from York St. John University in the UK. My professional coach certification and career coach certification are from the World Coach Institute.
