I first reached out to Mica when I was facing a number of challenges, which I didn’t think I could solve on my own. What I like about our sessions is that she keeps our discussions honest and to the point. She also helps me step back when I’m ‘over-focusing’ on certain things. I have learnt a huge amount from her challenging reflections and perspectives, knowing that they come from someone who is in my corner and wants me to succeed. Often when people get a coach, it’s primarily focused on getting better at their job. In our sessions, we focus on getting better at everything else (habits, communication skills, life & work balance etc), which helps me not only be better at my job but also a stronger leader. Taking time to focus on ourselves is often more important than we give it credit.
Founder & CEO
I considered coaching at a time in my life where I felt I needed to gain some clarity – my business was growing, I’d become a father, and I was starting to feel a little lost in the mayhem. That said I didn’t know what coaching actually meant. This led to some nervousness, but Mica made me feel incredibly comfortable throughout and helped me understand that there was no right or wrong way to go about things, that the process would allow me to get out of it just what I needed. For me the positive outcome was simple, but hugely beneficial. I better understand who I am today, why I am who I am, and I accept who I am with confidence. I now see my qualities as strengths and not weaknesses, and am no longer held back by the things I thought I lacked. I can’t thank her enough.
Working with Mica has been a revelation! Thoughtful, honest and incredibly perceptive, she's helped me to gain a lot of clarity at a time when I couldn't cut through the noise. Mica's approach is structured and thorough, however balanced with flexibility to discuss issues that arise unexpectedly. Mica is sensitive but direct in her approach, pushing me to be honest with myself and challenging me on my assumptions, whilst never failing to be kind and sensitive to my personal journey. I would highly recommend entrusting Mica to help you look at your current challenges through a clearer lens.

Mica turned my preconception of coaching on its head. Everything is outcome orientated, the sessions are very clearly structured and her notes are incredibly thorough. It makes looking back on what value you have gained an easy question to answer. Working with Mica has been such a pleasure. She has helped me understand and articulate my personal purpose and values. This has brought me a tremendous sense of calm and confidence at home and work. We have also looked at some of my biggest strengths as a leader and how I can use those more effectively. Since starting our sessions I’ve had lots of positive feedback from others on the changes I’ve made!

Working with Mica has given me peace of mind in how to be a founder. I have learnt to appreciate my individual leadership style and improved my sleep. She has led technical teams before, which is another point that I value in working with her. Her incredible empathy makes every single session a learning experience and my brain feels in a Zen state of mind after each session. I can highly recommend working with her, especially for first time founders!

Mica was able to help me immensely in ordering my jumbled thoughts about where I wanted to take my career next. She was able to help me structure my thoughts and translate them into executable actions. I would describe my experience of working with Mica as somewhere between teaming up with a Chief of Staff, Project/Product Manager and co-founder. Particularly helpful for people who have a lot of ideas and struggle to order them.
