Executive Coach - Abu Dhabi

Thank you for reaching out - I'd love to hear how I can help you.

What I do - I am a multi-cultural and bi-lingual German/English executive coach. I specialise in coaching professionals to adjust to new work challenges, by helping them reflect and develop a deeper understanding of what they want to achieve and how to get there. I work in partnership with my clients to help them overcome any personal and professional challenges and achieve both, success and fulfilment in their lives.

What else - I also help organisations maximise the return on their training investments by providing tailored 1-2-1 coaching supporting senior Learning & Development initiatives, to ensure learning is retained and effectively transferred into work situations.

How I work - Using an integrated coaching approach, I tailor my sessions to the individual and their presenting issues, drawing on a wide range of evidence-based coaching methods. I am passionate about my clients’ developments and place a great emphasis on coaching being a safe, enjoyable and rewarding experience for them.

Where I work - I have lived abroad and worked in multi-cultural environments for most of my professional life. I am currently based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, but provide coaching services in the UK, mainland Europe and the UAE, and travel regularly to the UK, where I still have my base in South-West London.

My clients - I have coached clients from a wide range of industries in the public and private sector, including creative industries (BBC TV producer, concert musician), FMCG, retail, manufacturing, higher education, charities, government organisations, professional service providers, and hospitality.

My background - I am a chartered MCIPD with an international business background and a career spanning over 20+ years in client services in marketing/advertising (Grey, O&M, DMB&B) and Human Resources consulting and management (private, public and educational sectors). Being trained and qualified through the post graduate Professional Certificate in Executive Coaching (PCEC) programme with Henley Business School, I adhere to the ICF coaching standards and professional code of conduct and ethics. The Henley PCEC programme is triple-accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association for Coaching (AC). I am Hogan 360 qualified and a Mental Health First Aider.

Throughout our coaching relationship, Britta was very consistent in her facilitation and helped me pave new ways of thinking. Our sessions helped me evolve my current mindset and empowered me to find answers to challenges I was facing with cleverly posed questions. I felt enabled to gain further insights and to increase my own self-awareness, which in turn equipped me better for future board meetings. These sessions have certainly not just benefitted me now but longer term too, as I find myself proactively considering different ways of approaching things and self-reflecting based on topics of past conversations we have had together. I highly recommend Britta as an experienced and exceptional Executive Coach. R. Stevens, Manager.


Britta coached me when I just started my new role as CEO of Spires, a London based charity supporting people who are homeless or insecure housing. We worked on improving my pacing throughout the week to keep on top of completing demands. Britta helped me identify and address potential stress factors and make more time for strategic planning. With Britta‘s facilitation, I developed an 8 month strategy based around my core priorities. I found working with Britta to be very motivating and would I would recommend working with her for other people who are stepping into senior positions. M. Wilson, Chief Executive.


Britta coached me as part of a leadership development programme I am part of at Screwfix. The areas I wanted to explore and work on during my coaching programme with Britta included: - Stronger leadership presence - more confidence, more authority/assertiveness, greater comfort operating at senior levels. - Work/Life Balance, stress-management and wellbeing. - Career planning and refocus. For each session, we agreed a clear objective and I was able to take away tactics and strategies I have put into practice. The sessions with Britta enabled me to reflect on and change my mindset on how I looked at certain work and life scenarios, which has been incredibly helpful to push me forward and focus on the future in the right ways. I felt that I left each session with a clearer vision on next steps and on how to shape my future but also feeling inspired and energised each time having that light bulb moment. I found these sessions so useful that my employer allowed me to extend the original coaching contract with Britta. Re-visiting the wheel of life towards the end of our coaching journey enabled me to acknowledge how far I have come through the support of the coaching sessions. If I had completed the wheel of life before the coaching I do believe each section would be dramatically lower on scores. Britta created a safe, open space which enabled us to explore key areas, for me to put perspective on areas in my life and really re-focus on what is most important to me. Allowing me to thoroughly investigated how I felt about certain events and scenarios emotionally and physically. Britta has helped me build plenty of tactics for support not just for myself, but also to help others, which I look forward to using. I will continue to lean on coaching due to the benefit I have had from the sessions with Britta… Kay Coombs


I had a number of incredibly useful coaching sessions with Britta, which were both practical and inspiring. I was able to talk through my objectives and be naturally guided towards positive action. It was helpful to be challenged in order to become clear about my priorities, potential solutions and action points. One of the exercises provided a framework for me to process my true feelings and a best way forward around a difficult conversation. I can’t thank Britta enough for her insight and thoughtfulness. Matt Holt, Director.
