About me

Are you seeking a career change?

Imagine a life where you look forward to Monday mornings and truly enjoy the work that you do.

Imagine building a successful career whilst still making time for the other important things in life. I work with ambitious professionals who:

I work with ambitious professionals who:

  • feel burnt out or frustrated with trying to keep up with all the demands on their time;
  • want to feel more fulfilled in the work that they do;
  • want to make an impact in their career but are not sure how;
  • want to have the time and energy to pursue their hobbies and passions outside of work;
  • are ready to take their career journey to the next level.

I help people get clear on their career goals and support them as they make career changes. That could be improving productivity, shifting career focus, seeking a new role or starting a business.

Making any change is hard but definitely worth it.

How can coaching help?

Through my open, friendly and collaborative coaching style, I will help you to gain clarity and implement a strategy to move you from overwhelmed and worried to calm and confident in your career.

How does it work?

Book a free introductory chat where we can explore whether working together would be a good fit.

We get started with a 90-minute strategy sessions, where we deep dive into the challenges you are facing and come up with a strategy for reaching your career goals.

We then work together over a 3 to 6 month period to implement your strategy so that you can start doing work that love.

Coaching sessions generally take place via Skype or telephone. However, face to face sessions can be arranged for clients living in close proximity to Godalming, Surrey.


Are you returning to work after maternity leave?

Having a baby is the most amazing experience and also the most challenging. Returning to work after maternity can be daunting.

You have been out of the office so feel out of the loop. You are not as confident in your technical abilities and you worry about how you will juggle work and family life.

I developed The Smooth Return Course to help you become a calm and confident working parent.

What is The Smooth Return Course?

The 4-week online course offers practical guidance, coaching and community with like-minded people.

When Does it Start?

The next intake starts on 29 October 2017. Spaces are limited so reserve your space today at www.lightboxcoaching.com/smooth-return-course/

Do you offer individual maternity or return to work coaching?

Yes - I also offer individual coaching packages for working mothers who are looking for support and strategies for successfully juggling work and family life.

Further information


"During this job transition period, I’ve been incredibly blessed and had the opportunity to meet and exchange with exceptional individuals.

One of those individuals is Janine. Job transition periods can be really challenging, and can affect one negatively on many levels. An efficient way to avoid falling into the trap of negativity, or the trap of making hasty fear-based career choices, is to get the guidance of a career coach from your own field.

Today I had my first session with Janine, and I really enjoyed the experience.

First, it’s really helpful to have some insight from someone who has a lot of experiences working in the legal field. Second, the session I had was tailor made accordingly to my specific needs. Third, right from the first session, she gave me tools and techniques I can implement right away to increase my chances of landing in the position I always dreamt of. Finally, Janine is a person who has a lot of active listening skills and she definitely is a very special career coach."

Mai, Attorney


"On my return to work following the birth of my son and the new set of priorities this gave me, I found I suddenly had more questions than answers when it came to my career. I searched for a coach who would “get it” and help me navigate various issues, including choosing the right career path for me. By asking probing questions and talking me through my responses, Janine helped me to find clarity about my future direction in just one session. I came away rejuvenated and with a renewed sense of purpose and direction. Thank you Janine!"
