Phanella is an excellent career and personal development coach, with impressive credentials. She encourages a long-term perspective and has a warm, detailed and direct approach. She is a great help during a career decision-making process and I would enthusiastically recommend her.
Phanella has provided me with several invaluable coaching sessions. She has encouraged me to focus on where I want to get to in the future and helped me to take this first step to achieving that. She has been sensitive to my circumstances but also firm when needed, and has offered me practical advice taking into account my previous career, my family circumstances and my ambitions. I can not recommend her highly enough.
“I continually rave about you – how you approach and see situations so astutely, directly and rationally, your sharp focus and your clear direction. I just wanted to say thank you for the inspiration, it made me feel powerful and unapologetic. And I will carry that with me forever.”
“Phanella is the first person I call when I need career advice. She is incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful and reliable. Her range of experience means there’s never a question she can’t answer and I love her direct approach.”
“Phanella has had a huge impact on my ability to build my business. Before meeting her, I thought coaching was not for me. Her knowledge of business, practical advice and direct style is not at all what I expected but has given me huge clarity of thought and proven to be of significant value.”
“Phanella has a wonderful approach to coaching and my sessions with her have radically changed the way I think about myself and my career… She seemed to have an almost magical ability to read my mind and completely understood the challenges I was facing in my industry at the time. She helped me identify what I really wanted from current and future jobs and injected a necessary amount of perspective into the options on the table. Thanks to Phanella I have a compass of strengths, values and priorities that I can turn to at any future fork in the road. I would heartily recommend her as a coach.”
“Phanella’s coaching sessions – quite literally – changed my life. I was feeling lost, unmotivated and sat in a cloud of self doubt after having two very young children. We worked through business ideas I’d struggled to get off the ground (and put huge pressures on myself to do so), we identified my strengths and where my focuses should lie, and with Phanella’s coaching I soon realised that going back to the stability of an office role was a path more suited to this point in life, and an important step for building my future. With this help I overcame imposter syndrome and landed a senior flexible role that works around my children. A million thank yous will never be enough!”

“What I think made Phanella’s advice so relevant was that she has herself experienced working in challenging roles and so her advice is not purely theoretical. She really understands the pressures that women working in the City face.”
“I came to your Red Smart Woman breakfast meeting last year and left feeling super inspired to grab hold of my life and follow the career path that was right for me. I feel that I was meant to be at your talk that morning… Fast forward to March 2019, since attending your talk I have given up my full time position as a store manager and after leaving uni 14 years ago, I started back in January to complete an MSc in International Marketing specialising in Digital and Social media. I can honestly say I would not be doing this had I not attended your talk. Thank you for being my inspiration.”
