My name is Carly and I’m a qualified coach whose passion is working with individuals who are looking to follow through on making a change. Hummingbird Coaching is focussed on goal setting, creating direction and defining purpose in either your business, career, or personal life.
I’m a friendly, easy-going coach with an informal, yet professional, approach. I work best with clients who are serious about making changes to their lives and careers, and who are ready to make the most of the coaching process.
Having started my career in the competitive TV and Film industry working as an assistant director and then agent, I then made a career change in my late twenties and quickly worked my way up to Marketing Director working with FTSE 100 companies and global software start-ups. Despite my successful career living in London, earning a good salary and travelling to wonderful places I wanted to escape the rat race; I felt uncomfortable, stressed and frustrated. I was good at my job but I didn’t feel in control of my life and something had to change. I needed to find my purpose.
In 2015 I experienced coaching which helped me gain some clarity and shortly started training to be one myself. In 2016 I left my job and took time out to travel and volunteer with young adults in Malayisa Borneo. In 2017 I set up my coaching business which I now run alongside working as a Marketing Consultant part time and finally get to enjoy quality time with my loved ones as well as nurture hobbies and passions I’d previously neglected.
I want to help as many people as I can to find their purpose so that they can also live a joyful life as their authentic self.
- Are you stuck in a job you hate?
- Do you dream of running your own business or escaping the rat race?
- Are you feeling lost about what you want to do and where you want to go next?
- Are you stressed and overwhelmed?
- Have you just finished your Gap year and aren't sure what path to take?
- Have you forgotten who you really are?

Through coaching, I can help you gain clarity and guide you through the process of setting meaningful and achievable goals that align with your key strengths and core values.
If this sounds like something you would benefit from then please get in touch for an informal chat to see whether I’m the coach for you.

“Through coaching with Carly I have exercised the conviction to eliminate jobs I may have previously considered, a sign that I have not made fear jumps where i would have previously. She has helped me realise that I am deserving of a job that I enjoy and that it is possible to achieve a fulfilling purpose in work. I would highly recommend Carly as a coach for someone going through a career crisis”
"Carly's approach during coaching is always attentive, you know she is really listening to you. But she also knows exactly the right prompt, and when to say it. Sometimes it can be tough to challenge yourself and really figure out what it is you want or how you might achieve it, Carly has been fantastic for guiding me through this process"
Jamie, Filmmaker & Scriptwriter, Berlin
"I found the sessions pushed me to get started, and prompted me to take continual, accountable action. The way that Carly prompted me to dig deeper meant that I came out of the majority of sessions with a solution or direction that surprised me, and I don't believe I'd have arrived at the key milestones I've surpassed thus far without the process and guidance I received."
Sarah, Digital Strategy Director, New Zealand
