Executive Coaching & Transition Coaching 

"We can´t change the waves but we can learn how to surf."

~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

"Palma has guided me through the many twists and turns in my own spiritual journey in the past 10 years. Without her advice, I would have missed many self-awakening moments and only seen the world through a tunnel vision. As a start-up entrepreneur, Palma’s guidance on mindfulness is the key to my own inner oasis, which is an eternal peaceful ground that I can always return to during the many ups and downs in entrepreneurship."

There is a growing recognition of challenges presented by the unprecedented pace of change, uncertainty and turbulence of business in the 21st century. In this environment we can not just rely on technical expertise or what we think we know. My clients are interested in moving beyond their technical expertise to become better leaders.

I am passionate about unlocking human potential and will work in partnership with you to develop a tailor-made coaching programme, that empowers you to move beyond your technical expertise to maximise your performance and become a better and more authentic leader. My executive coaching programmes mostly fall into one of these categories: 

  • Exponential Growth/Change
  • Leadership Development 
  • Performance Management
  • Career Progression & Direction
  • Managing Change
  • Relationship Management
  • Stress Management


"The process will empower you to step into the life and self you want, to be who you really are with authenticity." 


Change and impermanence are a constant in our lives. As a result, each of us will experience a number of transition periods in our lives. Be it changing careers, founding a business, moving countries, starting or ending a relationship, starting a family or dealing with loss of some kind. What these situations have in common is usually a feeling of being stuck or overwhelmed. We either experience a longing without knowing what for or know that we would like to have something different or be somewhere different, but we usually don´t know how to get there.

Having successfully navigated a number of transitions in my life so far (moving continents, changing relationships, dealing with loss and death, changing careers, etc.) and having learned many important lessons from speaking to people at the end of their lives, I am deeply passionate about holding the space for you and empowering you to step out of your comfort zone and move beyond your perceived obstacles. Together we will create and implement a vision and plan that allows you to create the life that you want and find lasting fullfilment. 

“You must ask for what you really want.”—Rumi

We will focus on integrating our asks and open a discussion on how the power of asking will shift your practice, and your life.

So what do you really want ?


As a coach, I am passionate about empowering my clients to step out of their comfort zone, enabling them to maximise their potential and create the lives they desire. I usually work with people, who are interested in moving beyond their technical expertise to be better leaders or create more meaningful and purpose-driven lives.

My coaching starts from the assumption of basic goodness and intrinsic wholeness.  The starting point is that there is more right with you than wrong with you, no matter how challenging the situation is that you find yourself in. 

My approach is holistic and focuses on the whole human being (mind, body and heart). I will partner with you and hold the space for you to enable you to step outside of the pressures of every day life. This process enables you to step back, gain perspective and increase your self-awareness, which is the first step to self-mastery. Together we will have a deeper inquiry into your underlying mindsets, stories, beliefs, challenges and aspirations. We will look at real-live challenges and develop action strategies to create sustainable behavioural changes.  

The process will empower you to step into the life and self you want and allow you to connect with and be your real authentic self.

  • Newly promoted or experienced managers, who are interested in moving beyond their technical expertise to maximise their performance and become better, more authentic and inspiring leaders.
  • Anyone in transition who feels stuck or overwhelmed.
