ABOUT VANESSA

2014 photo shoot crop.jpg

I love working with people to help them find and act on their potential. It took me years to work out how to do this myself and by coaching or counselling others, I can help them get to where they want to be faster and with support.

As well as running One-to-One, I work as a workplace counsellor for Oliva, and as a coach for Cognomie, delivering executive and mental fitness coaching. 

Prior to working as a coach/counsellor, I worked for an international conflict-resolution non-profit organisation, for the United Nations, and in the UK Civil Service in various policy roles. Overall, I have around 25 years’ professional experience. English is my mother tongue and I speak French and Russian, although my Russian is a bit rusty these days.

Additionally, I'm a trained climate-aware practitioner and an active member of the Climate Psychology Alliance.

I'm aware and sensitive to differences in ethnicity, culture, age, sexual orientation, ability, gender, and religious beliefs.

Qualifications

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My Registered Member's number is 00925877.

I have a post-graduate diploma in Counselling and Coaching (2019) and an MSc in Counselling and Coaching from the University of East London (2022).

I qualified as a coach in 2015 and have Senior Practitioner accreditation from the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC).  In my work, I follow both the BACP's and EMCC’s ethical frameworks.
