How Will Coaching Help Me?

I'll tailor each session to who you are and what you need. I'll ask you many questions, offer different perspectives, and challenge you when I notice your thinking goes against what you want. The sessions are confidential and open for you to talk through whatever is on your mind. 

But we won't just talk! We'll also build an actionable plan to move you toward your goal, and I'll hold you accountable to get things done. 

You're in the driver's seat and decide how much additional support you need. I'm happy to be in touch as much as you want and share relevant resources to deepen the work we'll do in our sessions.

As a result of my coaching, you'll see countless positive results, not just in your career progress but in how you think and feel. You'll become more confident, decisive, and aligned with your values and beliefs.

It can be a scary moment to realize you're not all that happy with your job. Especially when you've put significant effort into reaching your current position or if it was once your dream role.  However, experiencing this feeling doesn't always mean you must take a radical step, such as quitting. More often than not, […]

About Me

I’m a certified life coach, which means I went through a 4-month intensive training and coached under supervision (completed sessions where a more experienced coach monitored my progress with the client). To this day, I’ve completed over 100 coaching sessions and coached people across different industries.

Additionally, I have a degree in business strategy and several years of experience in different business roles. I’ve also worked as a recruiter for senior tech and business roles. I’m able to address your unique challenges even if you work in a highly specialized field. I also know the ins and outs of the job market and what top companies are looking for when hiring their highest-paid people.

You can get to know me better on LinkedIn.

Why I coach

I moved to Finland in 2017 and went through my fair share of figuring out what to do with my life. While volunteering in employment support services, I was helping people with their CVs. But I found this was often completely useless because people didn’t know what they wanted to do as a career. No CV workshop could help with that. That brought me to coaching; I wanted to help people figure out their lives and succeed. 

For me, coaching is extremely fulfilling. I’ve always been very curious about different people, their paths, and their goals, especially regarding their careers. I love chatting about different jobs and helping people find happiness at work because it affects all other aspects of our lives. You’ll find I am very down-to-earth and easy to talk to. My sessions are filled with equal parts of deep discussions and laughter.

Client success stories

Wondering what coaching can do for you? Take a look at all the results clients that worked with me achieved.

"I only had time for 6 sessions with coach Karolina, but it was very transformative I would say. I finally made career decisions I had been putting off for years. It was like a fog lifted, and I saw new opportunities that I never thought were possible for me. I definitely feel happier and more fulfilled at work. Karolina helped me think about different options and make the right decisions."

"Coaching with Karolina totally changed my career game and I am super grateful for that. When I first went to her, my job was causing so much stress that I felt like I would burn out. And honestly, I was worried about slowing down at work because I thought I wouldn’t be successful. But in our sessions, I learned so much about myself, and now I really take charge of where my life is going. It's been like 4 months since we finished, and it’s funny that I'm in a higher position, making more money but working fewer hours."

"When we started working with Karolina, I had a million unfinished projects and focus and prioritization were a foreign concept to me. After just a few sessions things started to turn around and I went pretty quickly from procrastinating to finishing projects within weeks. And I also started a non-profit organization, something I've always wanted to do but didn’t know how or when. But the best part is that my relationships with my team improved big time because I actually had time to talk with them and understand them."
