Executive Coach

download profile

Jessica specialises in coaching leaders who don’t see themselves reflected in the established leadership conventions, independent thinkers who see things differently. She challenges her clients to identify and leverage their unique talents and strengths to develop their own leadership style in service of their vision and goals.

Before changing careers and retraining as a coach in 2013, Jessica worked for 18 years at the intersection of creativity and technology with global organisations, public broadcasters, SMEs and startups. She has held a range of leadership roles, managing teams in software development, feature film post production, television, advertising and interactive media. As a result she brings distinct insights about organisational culture and what it takes to thrive in creative, fast-paced and competitive environments.

Coaching Style

Jessica works collaboratively and sees the coaching relationship as a partnership of equals. She holds a safe space for her clients and encourages fearless self exploration, with curiosity, without judgement. She adapts her coaching approach to suit the person in front of her, with sensitivity to their specific goals, organisational context and preferences.

She often works with a systemic lens to support clients in navigating the complexity of relationship, team and organisational dynamics. Based on her study of somatics, neuroscience and stress physiology, she invites awareness of the body to help clients manage how they respond to pressure and the impact of their personal presence on others.

Clients comment on the clarity, confidence and deeper insights they gain from working with Jessica. They appreciate her dynamic and creative coaching style and her calm, grounded presence.
