33 Queen Street
I am a certified executive development and career coach, and offer a wider range of professional coaching and leadership development services.
I can help you with topics like
- Advancing your leadership skills
- Time management, decision making and avoiding procrastination
- Improving working relationships
- Advancing your career, from getting a promotion within your organisation to changing companies or completely reinventing yourself
- Communicating more effectively
- Confidence issues
- Stress reduction
Every client is different – and so are my coaching programmes. I take great care in getting to know you, understanding your world, your challenges and your ambitions before designing a coaching programme tailored to your specific needs.
The programmes differ in length depending on the topic but many consist of six to ten 60 to 90 minute sessions, held at a mutually convenient venue (or Skype) over a period of several months.
Coaching will help you develop better self-awareness and effectiveness in every aspect. You’ll get deeper insights into your current situation, enabling you to set your future direction and reach your goals. Throughout the process, you will develop concrete and practical skills and strategies - which you can put into action straight away.
How exactly does it work:
Every coaching relationship starts with an introductory meeting – free of charge and with no commitment. This is an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss your coaching goals. It’s a chance for you to ask any questions and for both parties to consider whether they feel comfortable working together.
During the first coaching session, we will talk through your current situation and your coaching issue in more detail in order to identify a clearly defined coaching objective which will guide the rest of the programme. Over subsequent sessions, I will support you in working towards this objective by following a tailor-made programme. This can involve self-reflections, the development of new practices and habits, and new strategies and tools.
Most importantly, coaching is about helping you put theory into action and practise new skills in ‘real life’.
I coach in English and German.

Please get in touch to discuss your coaching goals and fees.
Our initial introductory conversation is entirely free of charge – with no strings attached. It’s an opportunity for us to get to know each other and discuss your coaching goals so I can establish whether I can help you and you can decide whether you want to work with me.
Subsequent sessions will last between 60 and 90 minutes.
Fees differ, depending on the length and complexity of the programme, so let's talk and discuss your requirements.
What clients say:
I have made excellent progress towards my coaching goal. Karin was the tonic that I needed to kick-start my dormant potential. The sessions kept me on-track as I knew that I was accountable to someone within a short time frame. Karin took a real interest in me and my situation and made me feel she cared if I succeeded. Some of the homework was quite tough! All of it very useful, tailored to my needs and helped me work out where I wanted to go. And although we had a tight schedule to fit in a lot of work, Karin didn’t make me feel pressured in any way. My overall rating of my coaching experience 5 out of 5.
Lynne Haddow, career coaching client
Karin is a wonderful coach – highly experienced, professional, empathetic and with a real talent for understanding you and helping you get to the crux of an issue quickly and with great warmth. I really enjoyed our sessions together. Karin keeps you focused while gently challenging you and supports you all the way. I would definitely recommend Karin to anyone looking for a coach to help them navigate a job change or indeed career change.
Mark Hanly, change management expert
Karin's holistic approach and warm, smart personality have meant that in a short time I'm already amazed by the breadth and depth of ways her coaching is impacting my life. I thought I was approaching her about a work issue, but her calm, caring manner quickly drew out the ways this was related to some much more deep-rooted beliefs and behaviours. I've found the insights she makes thought provoking - she's also got a wonderful sense of humour which helps when thinking about tougher issues! The practices she suggests have been rewarding, enjoyably varied, and creative.
As a result, in work contexts I've been amazed how quickly people have noticed improvements way beyond the issues I originally approached her about. My personal relationships are also now much calmer and happier. She is a wonderful person and I can't recommend her highly enough! Emily Oliver, Sustainability Consultant
Karin is a wonderful coach who has mastered the fine art of active listening. Her style is both supportive and stretches a person to achieve more than their comfort zone. The exercises are both insightful and liberating and are designed perfectly for the challenges at that particular point in time for the person. I am now more confident in my approach, more focused in my purpose and create more value for my key stakeholders. I feel truly blessed to have been coached by Karin, thank you once again for all your help & support over the past 6 months. Kush Kanodia, Social Entrepreneur
Working with Karin has helped me see why I am stuck and has directed that insight into something positive. She is very easy to talk to and I felt I could share every irk whether work or personal. After each session I felt rejuvenated and ready to address what I hadn’t been able to see before. The tasks set were not too taxing but cleverly revealing, and have made me see my views and values in a new light. I have found working with her incredibly helpful and beneficial.
