Angela is a leadership coach, team coach and coaching supervisor who works in a way that is relationally, systemically and existentially informed. Angela loves working with clients who are asking themselves big questions about their identity, place in their various systems (family, team, organisation, society) and who feel they have yet to achieve their fullest potential.
BrightStar Coaching is an existentially and systemically oriented leadership coaching practice with a strong belief that focusing more on our natural talents and what we already have in abundance, has the potential to unlock our greatest achievements and fulfillments. All of our coaching offerings - leadership coaching, team coaching and coaching supervision are carried out from a place that both recognizes and respects the whole system (organization and family) with philosophical foundations in existential issues such as meaning, identity, choice, authenticity, paradox, freedom and responsibility.
Having worked in leadership development for 24 years, Angela brings 3 important channels of experience to her coaching practice: a strong business background: expertise in leadership development and coaching for both individuals and teams and a Masters in Existential Psychotherapy.

Increased motivation and confidence of senior leaders based on an understanding of their leadership purpose and identity
