Deep down you have a different dream. The more successful you are, the bigger the challenge it seems.
The harder it is to be open about your dreams (and the self-doubt that come with it).
And the fewer the people around you that understand.
Hi, I’m Pauline.
I help high achieving professionals find clarity and purpose to create the life and work they truly want.
I help my clients break through their fears and self-doubt to regain their confidence and to finally start taking action towards the next level of success they desire.
My mission is to empower others to create the life and work they truly love, whether it’s to step fully into their own authentic leadership, start a business or spearhead an important initiative.
I’m a Certified Co-Active coach with the Co-Active Training Institute, a leading ICF-accredited organization and one of the pioneers of the coaching profession.
For the past 20 years, I’ve been studying personal growth. I’m fascinated about the traits, psychology, habits, and motivation that causes some people to strive for their full potential versus those that keep other people stagnated in their life.
Here’s what I believe
I believe it’s possible to live your dream life. That life becomes more fulfilling and joyful when you’re aligned to your purpose and your values.
I believe that we are more capable and have more potential than we allow ourselves to think. The people that know this are boldly taking action to turn their vision into reality.
I believe in taking a holistic approach, that both personal and professional life have to be considered to truly live a best life. This isn’t about achieving that mythical work-life balance, but helping clients make conscious choices to avoid burnout or discontent.
Prior to coaching, Pauline spent 10+ years in the corporate world working directly with C-suite and senior level executives in the areas of strategy, marketing and business development for leading Fortune 500 companies, The Walt Disney Company and Ralph Lauren Corporation. She has also spent time as a management consultant assisting FTSE companies launch new ventures. Her experience has spanned across Asia, Europe and the United States.
Stepping off the corporate track, Pauline trained as a Pastry Chef at the renowned culinary school, Johnson & Wales, and afterwards joined the Mandarin Oriental, a 5-star luxury hotel chain. She went on to launch her own business teaching avid home bakers in-person and online how to bake like a pastry chef in their own kitchens and also consulted for various dessert businesses.
Pauline has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Cass Business School and a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry.
The Real Journey
If you’re contemplating a big leap, I understand.
I’ve taken some scary leaps in my desire for growth and fulfillment. At each of those moments, I had a vision for what I wanted to achieve, but I never truly knew for sure how it would pan out exactly. After all, there are no guarantees in life.
Every time I had a new goal in mind, my brain would freak out, wondering if I was cut out for it, if I was good enough, or if I was making a big mistake. As I got older, each goal felt bigger and scarier. The fear of failure grew too. I wondered if it was better to play safe and stay put instead.
What I’ve learned over time, with the help of mentors and coaches, is that the fear is normal. Understanding and working through the fear is the key to moving forwards.
It was through my own experience of coaching that I eventually realized that coaching was my life’s calling. That my own experience of taking leaps and working through fears, together with the passion for personal growth could serve others in a transformational way.
It brings me much joy and purpose to help others get unstuck and boldly moving towards their own version of success and living their full potential. I’d love to help you too.
