Introducing Angelika and her story.

About Angelika

I am Angelika, an Executive Coach, NLP Practitioner, Associate Certified Coach with the ICF (International Federation of Coaching), Hogan Certified, Mental Health First Aider and Career Transition Coach. I have delivered over 800 hours of executive coaching and 300 hours of career transition coaching, but I am driven to continually learn, I am currently working towards becoming a Professional Certified Coach. I work with a range of global clients with a particular interest in (but not limited to) the Financial Services sector, Retail, Pharmaceutical, Education, Media, IT Services, Food and Beverages, Toys and Games, Healthcare, Manufacturing and the Automotive industry.

I am originally from Poland, and before I moved to the UK over 10 years ago, I completed my master’s degree in English, I am therefore able to provide coaching in Polish and English for global organisations. I have experienced a few major changes in my working career, transitioning my role from a teacher to a project manager and then now into coaching, plus becoming a parent to two beautiful boys, which means I can really understand some of the challenges my clients face. Balancing work and family life has taught me a lot.

My coaching is supported by the valuable experience I gained in working with a global management consultancy, initially in operations and project management, then finally settling into the Coaching Consultant role. I learnt a lot through collaborating with the sales team and external stakeholders, as well as championing internal system restructures across different departments and countries.

Personally, I love to learn, read, cook, run, swim and my latest discovery of spinning.

My Brand Story and the Start of Vision & Courage Coaching

My first time learning about the coaching industry was when I started working in operations for a management consultancy, offering career transition and executive coaching. I was impressed by coaches and the impact of their work and thought, how amazing would it be to become one of them one day . . . 

After returning from maternity leave, I knew I was ready for a new challenge and wanted to do something different that would help others rather than working in operations or sales. After a few months back at work, I decided to go for it and train to become a coach.

After completing my ICF qualifications, going through a global pandemic and becoming a mum for the second time, I started to work on my business. I started to think about my business name, I was playing with different words and values important to me when I realised that in my own personal journey, every time I made a change and succeeded, I needed Vision and Courage! I needed to see where I was going clearly and visualise it (my NLP training had a huge impact here), then take action and persevere with courage despite what challenges presented themselves.

Are you ready to embrace your goals with Vision & Courage?

In taking time to think about my business, I also noted the elements that were important to me to convey to my clients. A kind of working contract if you like. Below I summarise what you can expect from me when we embark on our coaching journey together.


Coaching can be successful only when a partnership and building of trust between a coach and coachee is created. I bring my coaching expertise on holding the space, asking you the right questions, and offering coaching techniques plus other resources. As the coachee, you bring your expertise in your field, your content, and knowing yourself.


Shows up in a number of ways in our coaching process. As a coach, I can offer my honest observations to support your learning and exploration, which may include your body language, a pattern of behaviour or share what I’m sensing. I encourage you to show up as your authentic self to maximise our time together. Our coaching sessions are always confidential.


All of my clients are on their own individual journeys, which often require courage to make changes or overcome challenges. If you are struggling with something in the workplace, take the first step and reach out to arrange a discovery call with me. I celebrate your courage!


In our coaching sessions, we will regularly talk about your feelings to gain greater understanding, regulate and shift your mindset. My role as a coach involves being with you in those moments and creating a safe space for you to support your thinking.



“Angelika is a fantastic coach. She is warm and very insightful with her methods, which helps me find my strengths and confidence. She listens carefully, challenges me to find the real problems, helps me to make plans, and pushes me to take action to achieve my goals. During our sessions, she has helped me with my career change successfully. My life and my confidence level have also improved massively. I can’t thank Angelika enough. Highly recommend Angelika to anyone who is considering coaching services. “

“Angelika is a compassionate, supportive and positive coach with a unique ability to spot the greatest paths of success for her clients. From coaching with Angelika, I feel I have grown from strength to strength and have been braver to take bigger and bolder career opportunities. I have gained invaluable skills; I understand myself better and my journey to become the best version of myself.”



“I can’t thank Angelika enough for our sessions. I started the journey confused and lacking in confidence and self-worth. Talking openly to Angelika felt like a relief. I feel like her approach led me to untangle my thoughts to give me a clear vision of what I wanted my professional and home life to look like. Her calm and warm demeanour put me completely at ease. I felt no judgement and supported, like I had someone else on my “team”. I finished our sessions with an increased sense of self-worth, a specific understanding of my goals and how to achieve them. I felt like a weight had been lifted. Thank you so much, Angelika! My life has completely changed for the better because of you.”

Facilities Manager


“Angelika was a massive support to me as I prepared for and embarked upon a promotion as a Head of Department in a Senior School. I was coming into the role with a sense of ‘imposter syndrome’, and I was seeking ways to build confidence in myself to develop trust and confidence in myself as a leader from my team. She is an extremely intuitive and perceptive listener and asks astute questions, leading me to devise strategies to practise. It was amazing when we came to the end of our sessions to look back and see the progress I had made, and I could not have taken those steps forward had it not been for the coaching I received from Angelika. She would be an asset to any team, employer or employee as a coach or mentor, and she has a genuine desire/vocation to see her clients grow. I would wholeheartedly recommend her services.”

School Department Head


“The personal (and professional) benefits gained from coaching with Angelika were invaluable; almost immediately, I felt relaxed with her style. The techniques she introduced me to helped me reach sound conclusions on issues I was dealing with, and I got real outcomes I could implement in my daily life. She provided a voice of reason and helped me take ownership and action for things I probably knew deep down but had buried and ignored for far too long! Thank you, Angelika, for all your support and guidance.”
