Gaby Grzywacz (ICF Dip. Coach) | Career Change Coach
Do you feel stuck in your corporate career?
Feeling like you need a change, but don't know how or where to start?
My name is Gaby, and I work with corporate high achievers who lost the spark and need a change in their career.
Having worked in family businesses, a startup and a large corporate, I have experienced a large variety of working environments. All of those experiences made me acutely aware of how much impact a job has on a person’s life. We spend a significant portion of our lives at work, yet often pay so little attention to how it affects our wellbeing. Or rather, we act like we don’t have the time to pay the attention - until life forces us to.
That has led me to explore how I could help people achieve a better balance between the professional and the personal. What started as a quest of a newly minted manager has led me on the path of coaching, and I truly fell in love with it.
While I talk a lot about work, I’m not a coach in a pantsuit and high heels. I coach with positive energy and bright colours - I believe I don’t have to take myself too seriously to deal with serious topics. During our coaching relationship, I will (virtually) invite you into my kitchen (#LondonLiving) where I will help you find the right way while sipping tea.
Our coaching sessions will help you explore:
- Your core values
- Your true interests (some of which you may have forgotten!)
- What actually makes you want to jump out of bed on a Monday morning
- Your own definition of work-life balance (or integration, however you choose to define it)
- What brings you joy and work, and what's an absolute no-go
- What your next career move should be, and how to get there.
I will encourage you, challenge your unhelpful thought patters, and cheer you on. The actions we will design together will be achievable, and will bring you an instant sense of satisfaction.
What my clients say:
"What is best about her approach is that Gaby leads you to find your own methods that remain sustainable in your life beyond coaching sessions. It was a great experience at the start of 2021 that set up the pace for my personal development for the entire year.”
"I feel very grateful to have been coached by Gaby. She has taken the time to understand where my interests and values lie, fostering an environment of authentic development. This has allowed me to be honest about the less satisfying aspects of my job, and take meaningful action towards a more fulfilling career.”
"Gaby is warm, friendly and welcoming, instantly making you feel at home within the coaching sessions. I was 100% a sceptic and didn’t believe that coaching would do anything for me. Gaby’s approach to the sessions, her ability to highlight aspects of my own words and then throw them back at me as questions allowed for self-reflection and self-set targets within my personal and professional life. The impact the coaching has had on my life is nothing short of a revelation, with Gaby’s unique and absorbing approach the key reason for my success. I could not have wished for a better result, having set myself a personal target of achieving one of my goals within 12 months, for it to be achieved successfully within 3!!! Thank you Gaby!!!”

In my free time, I love to travel (when pandemics don’t stop me!), read (as widely as possible - from romance, through high fantasy, to self help books), and try new foods. I have also been vegan since 2019, so if you’re looking for a vegan work-life balance coach, you’re at the right address!
