Our Training Faculty

Beatrice Zornek

Guided by an interest in human behaviour and emotions, Beatrice obtained a degree in psychology back in Romania where she is originally from. After graduating she had an eclectic career which included working for Google, in corporate sales for a market research organisation, and as Head of HR for a start-up in London.

In 2018, after multiple health diagnoses and on the brink of burnout, Beatrice realised she needed to make a drastic change that would be supportive of her health and wellbeing long-term. She decided to pursue her long-term dream of becoming a coach, and after training with Animas she left her corporate role to start her private practice – and hasn’t looked back since. As a coach, Beatrice specialises in career transitions and supports professionals who want to do impactful, purposeful work, to make this a reality. In 2020 she also qualified as a coach supervisor with the International Centre of Coaching Supervision.

As part of the faculty at Animas, Beatrice facilitates group supervision and reflective spaces for coaches in training. She has a particular interest in Transactional Analysis, Jungian Psychology, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and the trait of HSP (Highly Sensitive Person). In both her coaching and her supervision, Beatrice enjoys working with inner parts and helping create effective communication between them, so we can re-establish connections with lost or rejected parts of ourselves, which is a core principle of individuation – or becoming who we really are.

In her supervision practice, Beatrice is passionate about helping coaches explore their practice at a deeper level, uncovering patterns and blind spots which enables their coaching to be more powerful and effective. She is also a trauma-informed practitioner who cares about working in a way that’s sensitive to trauma, ethical and in integrity with the coaching profession.
