“I assist, advise and counsel people in all areas of their lives, through a blend of executive, life, career and transition coaching, mentoring and healing. One of my strengths is to read people with clarity and guide them to have a job and live a life that is in alignment with who they are and assist them to realize their full potential. My work combines business experience, psychological insights, strategic awareness, executive and life coaching, mindfulness and healing. My core values are authenticity, kindness, courage and excellence.”
Marika’s professional background includes 14 years in Finance, starting as an Equity Analyst, moving to Equity Sales, Equity Desk Manager and ultimately Head of Equities for Europe and Middle East at Newedge with 40 equity sales and desk managers located in Frankfurt, London, Paris, Zurich and Dubai included in her remit.
During this time she was recognized as one of the most successful Equity Sales professionals in her company and was appointed as one of the youngest, female Sales Managers. Conscious of her own growth, Marika started in 2000 to focus on her progression in both the professional and personal spaces through psychotherapy, NLP, executive and personal coaching, management courses, mindfulness and yoga. Marika also developed an interest in indigenous healing practices and particularly the influence of consciousness and mind on the process of healing. Through all of these practices, she started to realize how powerful working on oneself can be.
Since 2005, combining her financial knowledge with her desire to support and nurture new ventures and talented entrepreneurs, Marika has been participating in early round financing of start ups. With a particular interest in biotech, Internet, fashion and agriculture, her business angel activities have exposed her to venture capitalism, the fundraising process as well as allowing her to act as a sounding board to these emerging businesses and young entrepreneurs.
She left the finance world in 2012 to dedicate her time to this passion for personal development and coaching in all of its different forms. Her clients include entrepreneurs, C-levels and executives in London, Paris and in the US as well as private individuals all around the world.
Marika was born and raised in Paris and has traveled extensively. Following stints living and working in New York and Madrid, she settled in London in 2007, where she remains with her son.
