Hi, I'm Larisa
Thanks for stopping by.
I’m a life coach and career consultant.
My journey started in a small town in New Zealand, before I relocated with my parents to Sydney, Australia.
Having completed my Marketing studies, I began my career in advertising. I worked in independent and global agencies to creatively bring brands to life.
After 13 years in the world of advertising, there was still a lot to explore. The opportunity to travel and experience life outside of Sydney was the next part of my journey.
With that came marriage, children and new challenges that continue to evolve and change every day.
A change of direction.
In London, an opportunity to recruit and partner with great talent to help them build on their personal growth and careers was the ideal next role for me.
Having helped parents returning to work to find their confidence has also contributed to my desire to coach and truly help others.
My focus has been on areas of career development and progression. However, another important component of that is how our careers impact our lives.
With over 15 years in recruitment, I’ve supported my clients and candidates searching for that work/life balance. As we know, our career is just one aspect of our lives. There are so many areas that we can continue to develop and improve on. All we need is the time, space and a close ear to support us.
Having had children later in life, relocating back to Australia and juggling my own personal growth was certainly challenging.
Returning to work or raising my family full time, combined with economic and societal pressures, were factors I had to navigate to find that balance and happiness.
As your coach, I’m not here to tell you what to do. You have your own journey ahead of you. I’m here to help you discover your own possibilities and make positive changes. I will be your cheerleader and will be there to ensure your journey stays on track and you’re making progress.
Together, we’ll work through an action plan to give you the tools to confidently take that next step. However big or small.
The coaching journey is about you and helping you achieve your goals.
We’ll progress at a pace that works for you and that will shift you to an action of positivity and progress.
My professional coach training is accredited through the ICF – International Coaching Federation, meeting the highest standards of coaching excellence.
