Karen Braakman


I am a career coach passionate about helping people successfully manage their careers and reach their full potential by adopting a “whole life” approach. Having worked as a City lawyer for nearly 15 years, I have seen first-hand the importance of building relationships, taking time to acknowledge your core values and making conscious career related decisions. Career coaching helped me on my own journey and it is a privilege to help others on theirs.


Through a lot of humour and perseverance, I managed to transform the way I work after having children and taking some time out. I now have a career combining work as a legal consultant with career coaching. As a result, I have a particular interest in supporting people to put in place the building blocks for a successful future career after a change in (personal) circumstances and/or a career break.
