Red Arbre believes that enjoying your work, and harnessing your talents, matters. It helps you to make the most out of life.
We know that having space to think things through and structure to move things forward can make the world of difference when things are 'not quite right'.
Our personalised, expert coaching service aims to give you the support and space you need to take control.
'Arbre’ is French for ‘tree’ and the name Red Arbre is inspired by Shaun Tan’s incredible book The Red Tree. The book is a reminder of how there is always a way forward, even if things feel overwhelming or look bleak.
Who we work with
We have been fortunate in working with lawyers, management consultants and finance specialists, as well as UN personnel, entrepreneurs, human rights professionals, and many more.
We also work with law firms and corporate clients, helping their employees to be happier at work.
We know these things are not always easy, and we are here to help you work through it.
What we do
We understand that everyone is different. We tailor career coaching sessions to your individual needs.
Sessions can focus on any of our main themes or draw on a combination, or they can include other areas which are particularly important for you.
Changing career or job
Motivation and values
Dealing with confidence & Imposter Syndrome
Getting clear on work you love
Getting out of a rut
We also hold regular seminars and workshops in London. Our next Overcoming Imposter Syndrome workshop is on 4 November in London (details here).
How we work
On a tangible level, your coach will work with you using a combination of questioning techniques and exploration exercises. This can involve, for example, crafting goals, thinking through obstacles, forming action plans, fixing timelines, and creating space for regular reviews and follow ups – all to support you in moving forward.
On an intangible level, many clients gain confidence and clarity, and experience reduced stress and a greater sense of control. You will be our focus at all times.
We will work with you on a one-to-one basis in confidential sessions. These can be face-to-face or over Skype/telephone, as you prefer. We just ask that you set aside the time for yourself.
For our corporate clients we also offer tailored seminars and group sessions.

About your coach
Miss Nazish Bhaiwala,
Red Arbre founder and career coach
Former employment lawyer at top tier city firm
Qualified professional coach and accredited workplace mediator (with Coaching Academy and ADRg)
Articles featured in The Lawyer magazine
Background in languages (University of Oxford) and international NGOs (conflict resolution and access to justice)
“Nazish is a delight to work with – energizing, committed, thoughtful and perceptive, and business minded.” (Lawyer)
Nazish has gathered a wealth of experience in dealing with workplace issues while working as an employment lawyer in the city and training as a workplace mediator.
Wanting to find her ideal job, Nazish herself undertook a successful career change in 2010 and experienced first-hand how it can be done, what the challenges are, and how to overcome them.
Nazish combines a genuine fascination with happiness at work and a passion for coaching techniques, together with a unique blend of corporate and not-for-profit insight.
“Nazish is very personable and exudes calm confidence which creates an open and trusting backdrop to the coaching sessions. I would hire her again without hesitation.” (Lawyer)
“Nazish takes time to build trust, rapport and understanding. She is not afraid to ask the difficult questions – the ones that really stretch and force you to the core of exceptional performance. For anyone serious about their career, I would recommend working with a coach. Further, for anyone serious about excelling in their career and realising peak performance, I would strongly recommend working with Nazish.” (Management consultant)
“I had been procrastinating about applying for a new job for several months. Within a week of my first coaching session I had updated my CV, and a week after that I had my first interview. The coaching gave me the impetus to apply for a new job. Nazish was an excellent coach and I do not believe I would have done any of this without her coaching.” (Investment banker)
“Coaching made me see things clearly, appreciate what I have and work on what I need. It taught me to organise my thoughts, prioritise, and work in a structured manner. Life has been in control since, and I highly recommend coaching to everyone and my wonderful coach Nazish who helped me through it.” (Health professional)
“Throughout coaching sessions with Nazish I have felt understood and comfortable; she has pushed me to achieve more, while still respecting my boundaries. I am now very confident in where I am going and how to get there.” (Entrepreneur)
“Nazish was at all times encouraging, positive and patient. She gently nudged me to celebrate my skills and develop confidence, she also challenged me to make dramatic changes in order to bring about much quicker results.” (Teacher)
We generally recommend six coaching sessions per client, with a short additional 'intake session' at the start.
Sessions last 50 minutes each and range in price depending on the type of package booked. Please contact us for more information.
You can also attend one of our seminars in London (the next Overcoming Imposter Syndrome workshop is on 4 November 2019 in London).

"Nazish has coached me to get specific about what I really want…coaching has empowered me to realise the art of the possible and in some cases, what I previously thought impossible.” (Management consultant)
