Barbara Dewast

 Barbara started her career as a City Lawyer in London. She discovered the fast-paced corporate life, with clients demanding high-quality work in a competitive atmosphere.

Wanting to bring a better balance to her working life she set up a corporate wellness venture, with a former colleague. In her new role as corporate wellbeing advisor,  she organised wellness programmes in major corporations in the City, such as mindfulness meditation, yoga, pilates and nutrition sessions. This gave her the opportunity to deliver workshops across the City.

Her passion for people then brought her to recruitment and coaching: she joined an executive search firm, set up by ex-McKinsey consultants and known as the place to-go-for, for roles with the top-3 strategy consulting firms. Although she was working with outstanding candidates, she noticed that most were struggling to reach their true potential and to find real career fulfillment.

She formalised her coaching training with one of the best global coaching institutions (The Coaches Training Institute in London), and now uses the powerful Co-Active tools to help experienced professionals determine their next steps and action them. 

The blend of coaching, recruitment and corporate experience empowers her to work with professionals who thrive to make an impact - in a fun, professional and life changing way.
