"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Janine. She put together a bespoke 12-week coaching package for me based on my needs as I was starting a new job that I was feeling very anxious about. I had taken a short career break and was coming in at the organisation at a leadership level and working with Janine has been quite key to how quickly I have settled into the new role. It was invaluable to speak to her on a weekly basis about how I was feeling, challenges I was facing that week and, most importantly, long-term and strategic planning of my time at the organisation. I could not recommend Janine enough - she is a fantastic coach and will without a doubt help you succeed in whatever your goals might be!"

"I contacted Janine as soon as I was furloughed last April. I felt that I had to be prepared for the worst that could happen to my job but I also knew it was time for the change I had been wanting for my professional career for a very long time. Working with Janine has literally enabled my vision for a new path in my career to become reality. The Career Clarity Academy is a step by step programme which I followed meticulously and which helped me land the new role I started today - all in the middle of a pandemic! Janine is always available and such a great motivator - I could not have done it without her."

Lia Machado, property lawyer

"Fear is a very real emotion that can stop you from realising what could be yours. Before joining CCA, I had only thought of and, at best, daydreamed about my ideal career. But the fear of change and maybe disappointment kept me from putting my thoughts into any sort of action. The thing that made the difference to me was the very applicable and practical approach of the programme, and the joint accountability of the group helped me to build confidence to take some really practical steps in moving closer to getting clarity about what I had to do next. I'm really pleased that three months after completing the programme, I have indeed landed my ideal job! I would absolutely recommend Janine as a coach and the Career Clarity Academy as vehicle for providing a personalised plan for career success."

    Professional Background

    I started my career as a corporate lawyer and worked in private practice for a few years until I went on  maternity leave with my first child. During maternity leave, I decided not to return to law firm life and  transitioned into an in-house legal role instead.

    Meanwhile, I completed my coaching certification on the side and started building out a portfolio career  where I could blend my love for coaching with my established role as a lawyer.

    After lockdown (and the joys of homeschooling), I decided it was time to go full time in my coaching practice and now get to fully focus on supporting and coaching incredible women from around the world.

    What drew you to coaching?

    Early on in my legal career, I had the chance to go on a mission trip to East Africa. It was a phenomenal experience. When I returned to my desk at a law firm in the UK, I realised I needed to be doing more to help people on a personal level.

    I came across coaching and went to a two-day Coaching Academy taster seminar. I was so excited to learn that there was a whole industry around a skillset that came naturally to me.

    I am super passionate about helping women to thrive in their careers and make a huge impact in the world. I enjoy holding space for people to own their brilliance and develop the confidence to articulate the value  that they can bring.

    I bring my infectious enthusiasm and positivity to every coaching session. I will cheerlead, encourage and  hold you accountable all at the same time. If you are ready to go for your goals and do so unapologetically,  let’s chat and see if working together may be a good fit.
