Prior to setting up her own leadership and career coaching practice in 2018, Marta spent 15 years in the City, including working in a Big Four consultancy where she led projects for dozens of financial services firms around the globe, working for and closely with C-suite leaders.
Although she really enjoyed her varied and dynamic career, something important was missing. She decided that those looming headaches at the start of each week couldn’t be ignored anymore and she decided to start a new chapter in her life, immersing herself fully in her new career as a coach.
Today she is an PPC ICF accredited coach with two main strands to her work:
In her work within organisations, she supports leaders to develop their leadership and emotional intelligence skills to build engaged, purpose-led, and high performing teams. With her degree in actuarial science combined with business and leadership experience, she understands the context of her clients’ challenges and opportunities.
In her private practice, Marta supports her clients to see through the fog of immediate pressures and create a purposeful career that’s a great fit for them. Marta is passionate about how the world of work is changing and is a big believer that we can all live lives on our own terms if we decide to, regardless of circumstance. Marta’s own location-independent coaching practice is an example of that.
Marta has a professional interest in the imposter phenomenon and is on a mission to help her clients find ways to quieten those critical voices so they can thrive in their lives and careers.

Given her background, Marta chooses evidence-based theories and practices as the bedrock of her coaching. Her coaching programmes draw from a number of disciplines including neuroscience, positive psychology and design thinking. Marta’s coaching approach combines deep listening, empathy and honesty with a focus on practical steps that her clients can take outside of the coaching space to move forward with their goal.
Marta loves training and working with groups. The Animas training room, with the wealth of insights and reflections that we never fail to create as a group, is one of her favourite places to be. You can be sure that Marta will bring a wealth of work life and leadership examples to the training.
She is also a qualified coach supervisor and a learning facilitator at the International Centre for Coaching Supervision.
