About me

My Background
My own career transition took me from the world of TV to the world of coaching. My spirit of adventure provided the energy to shift my focus to developing the potential in others.  I then spent over 5 years leading the BBC's Career change service before launching my own coaching practice in 2013.

What to expect
I bring to the table expertise that empowers you to enjoy your working life in service of both your performance and overall wellbeing.  You will  reconnect with what really matters to you; learn to truly value who you are and what you bring, and identify clear goals that speak to your purpose.  

 If only we checked the energy in our own battery as often as we do in our phone!  As an accredited Resilience specialist, I provide the tools  that enable you to understand and action the behaviours that sustain your energy as you bring your best self to all you do.  

My approach has been described as person-centred, challenging and deeply compassionate.

Here is what a recent client said:-
The process has been life changing in some respects! It has been hugely challenging but incredibly supportive. Una is an outstanding coach and is thoughtful, kind and warm  R. Wilson School Principal

·      Entrepreneurs scaling up their business who want to achieve growth while learning how to pace themselves in service of both their performance and wellbeing
·      Women returning to the workplace after a break  who want to build confidence and momentum while ensuring  the right  balance between home and work 
·      Employees taking redundancy ( voluntary or compulsory) considering what’s next and requiring support to recognise their  unique value. 
·      Individuals ready to retire and/or ‘rewire’ keen to discover what this next chapter could look like at its best.

  A Career Transition client says -   Una is an amazing coach that guided me at time when I wanted to make a significant change in my professional career. I knew I needed to embark on a new journey and needed someone to help me realise what that journey should be. She helped me to understand what I truly wanted out of my career based on my strengths and desires. She gave me the confidence to go for it. I full heartedly recommend Una to anyone who wants to figure out what their new calling is and go for it.  M. Zielonka
