About me

For me, it is about building confidence and courage. It is about helping the people I work with to become conscious leaders and lovers of life.

As a Coach I work with all types of professionals from start-ups to entrepreneurs, senior managers and private individuals. I make the coaching process challenging, honest and, above all, authentic - so I can be direct, occasionally blunt and wholly unafraid of asking difficult questions!

My approach to coaching is based in various disciplines including Co-Active Coaching, relationship coaching, somatic/embodiment coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, positive psychology, NLP, process therapy and social psychology. The approach is holistic, honest and is meant to evoke a change from within that will last and enable and empower the individual to flourish in life in the long term.

I specialise in:

- Professional coaching which covers Career Coaching/Career Change, Career Progression, Professional Growth, Leadership Development, Conscious Leadership, developing soft skills for workplace.

- Life coaching which covers personal growth/development, spirituality, consciousness development, changing life habits, relationships, interpersonal skills, growing positivity and motivation.

It has been fantastic working with Joanna. I found it really useful to be taken through a thorough process and as a result and now have a really clear idea of exactly what my skills and passions are and practical ideas about the next steps I need to take. I now feel more confident and I am exploring some amazing opportunities that I would never have felt possible before. Joanna will work with you to help you find time to fit the sessions into your lifestyle - no matter how busy you are. I enjoyed the mixture of face to face and Skype sessions, as this saved me time and both were equally useful. If you want to learn more about yourself and how to discover your true potential, I cannot recommend Joanna highly enough.

Tom, Education Consultant

Joanna’s coaching helped me greatly last year as I looked for a new and challenging role. She kept me focused and provided me with tools and strategies to let me shine through the interview processes.
It’s nice to have a boost button handy when you need it!

Peter, IT Consultant

I love to do a lot of things and it seems that all of them are important for me... so I have been coached by Joanna and she has helped me to focus and find a direction in my professional life and building a plan to go for it!! She has bringed me more clarity related to who I am and what I will love to work on!!

Ainhoa, Consultant

I can't overstate how much value I have taken from my time spent with Jo. As a business leader with over 20 years experience, and having actively driven my personal development, which included having worked with coaches at work over the years, I thought that I was a well rounded leader and initially had my reservations as to how much value I would take from these coaching sessions, but I have taken more value from 12 coaching sessions than I ever thought possible. I was challenged, taken out of my comfort zone and driven to better understand myself and my values. Not only do I now think that I am a more effective leader, but my personal time is so much rewarding. 5 stars from me

Lee, Retail Director

Joanna Hunek is one of the most professional persons I’ve ever met. Her personalized approach, being at the same time challenging and warm is more than impressive. We were meeting half a year and thanks to these conversations I realized what my unnecessary limitations are. I didn’t believe in my advantages – presenting and negotiation skills; I was concentrated too much on my weakness. She opened my eyes on easy true – there are things that are out of our control. And proper attitude and believing in ourselves open the door to anything we dream of. Thanks to relevant skills of Joanna I have just found a new, very ambitious job and director’s position. Wish anyone such a coach!

Tom, IT Director

The coaching sessions have really helped my confidence, enabling me to challenge myself and step outside my comfort zone. This has led to me achieving more and attempting more than I thought I was capable of.

Carlos, Retail Manager

Joanna is a formidable coach, tenacious yet gentle, able to help her clients reach awareness and insight that creates new openings for the possibility, and new ways of thinking. It was my pleasure to be coached by her.

Karl, VP in Pharma Industry

Through working with Joanna I now have a much clearer understanding of who I am, what's important to me, and the confidence and structure to pursue my dreams. I cannot recommend Joanna highly enough, so if you're feeling stuck, a bit tired of the day to day, like you're missing out on life, and want to drive a change Joanna is the perfect partner with the skills to help you on your way.
