About me

Jessie Zhu - Personal and Executive Coach

I'm a qualified personal transformational coach and offer one to one and group coaching to clients based in London and globally.

About me

I am passionate about inspiring and empowering you to connect with your inner compass, be you best self, and lead a career and life that lights you up from inside out.

Combining extensive business experiences in the financial service industry with a broad range of expertise in personal development and positive psychology, I specialise in working with mid-career professionals who are in transition to new career paths or new roles.

One of my favourite quotes is the following by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

I truly believe every human being has his or her unique gifts to offer to the world, that makes them comes alive and shine from within.

My coaching philosophy and style:

I believe coaching is about creating an empowering partnership where we work together to create a safe and supportive space for you to reflect and explore yourself, make real choices and take real actions to make the most out of your life and career. By “real”, I mean making choices and doing things that align with your value and purpose, congruent with who you are, and based on your own definition of “success”.

My deep interests in human conditioning combined with extensive real-world business experiences offer unique perspectives to support my clients to raise awareness and gain clarity in life and career, in particular as they go through a transition of some kind or experience a dilemma of choices.

I bring a mix of eastern and western philosophical insights with evidence-based practical strategies from the field of positive psychology into the coaching practice to help you realise your true potential.

I believe real transformation takes place when we dig deeper to understand ourselves – not only in what we do, but more importantly in who we are.

Together we will reflect and explore your unique “being” – what matters to you, what stories you are telling (or not telling) yourself, how you show up in the world, what brings out the best in you, and what makes you come alive.

Together we will create a plan to bring who you are into what you do, so that you can be the best version of yourself and lead a life on your own terms.

My clients have described my coaching style as calm, empathetic, practical yet challenging when needed.

What others say:

“Jessie’s ability to help me see things clearly, to know much better what I want and have, and to realise what is truly important to me, is so helpful to my thought process and life in general!  She does her coaching in such a gentle, non-intrusive way, while being extremely impactful.”

“Jessie is a unique coach. She has a gift and skillset to help people discover what their own journeys are, what hidden potential, and the resources they have. During the coaching with her, a person sets of on a very different journey, the journey to becoming more confident, happy, full of joy, and discovers the answers he or she was looking for. She is a true asset and I just need to thank Jessie for having her in my life!”

“Jessie really helped me nail the crux of the issue during my career change process. She also helped me come up with practical ideas for exploring possibilities and identifying solutions.  I can only vouch for Jessie’s calming and practical approach and encourage you to try it for yourself.”  

“Jessie is an excellent listener and very good at probing into your blockers and ambitions. She has a very calm way of helping you to see through your distractions, de-clutter life and clearly identify your future self. She did this through asking questions that got me thinking about what is important to me, what drives me and what I want my life to look like.  The sessions were also aided by personality guides to encourage self-awareness/ tendencies which I found surprisingly relevant.”

Training, qualifications & experience

Work Experience:

I spent near a decade in front-office roles in investment banking helping clients to raise capital and optimise balance sheet before starting up my own business.

Whilst I enjoyed the challenge and excitement of working in a fast-paced environment, it also made me realise how important to build up our own psychological capital and to reconnect with ourselves so that we can truly lead our career and life with passion, purpose and abundance.

Now I work with individual clients ranging from mid-career professionals looking at next step in their careers, to small business owners setting up their first venture. I also run group workshops focusing on applying positive psychology to help people flourish in personal and professional life.
