About me

You are probably someone who wants to change your life and achieve great success, wealth and impact. But maybe indecision, doubt, fatigue and stress get in the way? 

You feel like you make some progress but other obligations slow you down... 

That's why working with me as your coach cheering you on along the way will get you to: 

  • Make significant changes in your personal and/ or professional life    
  • Enable you to live the life you always dreamt of 
  • Give you the tools you can utilise every day to live a more balanced, fulfilled life 

I am a Certified NLP Practitioner and Coach with business acumen here to help you conquer self-doubt, navigate complexities of life and career and reduce stress levels once and for all

NLP has changed my life. It has allowed me to make big changes in my own life, simply through raising awareness of how my language patterns and thoughts impact my life experiences. This has sparked a huge passion to help others in finding their purpose and develop their mindset to become the best versions of themselves and live the life they deserve.

An experienced coach, I utilise my wide-ranging modalities such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Somatic Coaching or mindfulness to enable individuals, and organisations to reach their full potential.


·        Provide bespoke coaching packages designed for you as an individual, your  specific circumstances and exact goals 

·        Provide tools to manage challenging situations 

·        Support in re -framing and challenging limiting beliefs 

·        Support in overcoming anxiety, stress and increasing self- confidence 

·        Facilitate new ways of thinking 

·        Provide accountability 

All you need is a desire to change, open mind and a willingness to learn new ways of being...with yourself, your thoughts and with others. 

What makes working with me different?

My professional experience includes working nearly two decades in large multi national businesses. I have held several corporate development, project management and sales roles which enables me to understand highly complex environments and situations, and the challenges of both personal development and career progression.

How do I work?

You will get tailored 1:1 coaching sessions (over Skype or Zoom) using various modalities such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Somatic Coaching. This means you will benefit from flexible approaches that suit the best way of working with you.

A discovery session (which lasts 1.5 hours)  explores  aspects of your life. It is  an opportunity for you to reflect on what needs a little more attention. You can talk about  goals and ambitions and agree on a specific one you want to work on. 

After that, each session lasts an hour.

What people say about working with me? 

"Working with Marlena has helped me in so many ways in terms of confidence and motivation, but for me the most valuable part was the opportunity to gain a different perspective on things from someone removed from the situation and completely non-judgemental. Coaching is something that anyone can benefit from, regardless of their situation or goals, and I would highly recommend Marlena for her professionalism and kindness."


'I made the decision to work with Marlena after a particularly stressful day when I'd decided once and for all I needed to take control of my life. I've read and listened to endless self help material over the years and worked with therapists but never truly felt in control of my life for a consistent period of time. 

I can truly say that working with Marlena was one of the best investments I could of made for myself and I feel like a different person after only two months. Not only have there been external results but due to my change in thinking I feel like I can face any challenge in any area of my life now.

Marlena is worth every penny (and more) and I've recommended her to many of my friends and family already"


I would recommend Marlena as a coach, an NLP practitioner, a supportive ear and everything in between. I started off with 6 sessions, looking for some clear, concise professional advice to get life and my career back on track. With Marlena’s inquisitive, non-judgmental, pragmatic and clearly very well thought through sessions she was able to establish very quickly the right development plan for me. Marlena’s style is not one size fits all and she was incredible at taking the time to look to the core and root of the issue or set back before deciding the best way forward. The key practises that Marlena has taught me has had a profound effect on how I now approach life both professionally and personally and I couldn’t recommend more highly. Marlena has a unique balance of calmness yet with a genuine determination to help people, and the sessions feel very authentic to you as an individual. I extended the initial 6 sessions and now have a 3 month programme under my belt and I couldn’t thank her more. For development needs in every aspect of life, I whole heartedly recommend’.  


Marlena has been a fantastic coach enabling me to become more self-aware of my career drivers to enable me to make clear decisions in my career journey. As a creative, using NLP methods has been a great tool to broaden my perspective both for work and personal related subjects.

I would highly recommend Marlena.


Marlena helped me with getting clarify on what I really wanted in life and how to go after it. I have struggled with low self – esteem for years but by working with Marlena, I have been able to unpick what was really behind it and how to tackle it. Now I know how to deal with my inner critic and have access to techniques which I never knew existed. These sessions have really transformed my life and I have since I got a promotion and moved house (which I never thought I would be able to do by myself!). 


'I have worked with Marlena for a few sessions so far so she can help me set boundaries with family and friends. This is something I have struggled with for most of my life, always being a people pleaser, my own needs always coming last. Working with Marlena has help me identify how I want to be and be seen as an individual. We have identified the relationships I want to work on and Marlena has given me the strength and the tools to start to set healthy boundaries that I am comfortable with. I look forward to continuing to work with her as my confidence builds'. 


“Marlena is a highly professional and competent trainer who's approach is detailed and challenging, but still make you feel at ease.  Working with Marlena has taken me on a journey of discovery that has  given me the tools and techniques to improve my confidence, focus and communication in both corporate and  personal situations.

I would highly recommend training with Marlena to anyone who would like to develop themselves and achieve their goals.”
