Career coaching for professionals
Welcome to Red Arbre
We believe that happiness at work matters.
If you are unhappy at work or if you are experiencing Imposter Syndrome, some support from an expert career coach at Red Arbre could be exactly what you need.
Red Arbre believes that enjoying your work, and harnessing your talents, matters. It helps you to make the most out of life.
We specialise in helping workers to feel happier at work and to overcome Imposter Syndrome. We know that having space to think things through and a structure to move things forward can make the world of difference when things are 'not quite right'.
Whether you are an organisation who recognises how key having satisfied employees is to your success, or whether you are an individual looking to make things better at work, our personalised and expert coaching service aims to give you the support you need.
'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, healthcare professionals, and many more.
We also work side by side with employers, helping their workers to feel happier at work.
We know these things are not always easy, and we are here to help you work through it.
How we work
What we do
We understand that everyone is different. We tailor coaching sessions, workshops and talks to your needs.
If you are an organisation or employer looking for tailored support for your workers or a particular group of workers, we take the time to discuss what would work best for you.
For individuals wanting help that is committed solely to your individual growth and development needs, our coaching sessions aim to meet you where you are.
Sessions can focus on any of our main themes and they can include other areas which are particularly important for you:
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
Changing career direction
Being happier at work
How we work
For our corporate clients we offer talks, seminars, and workshops tailored to your needs.
For individuals wanting coaching sessions, 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. We just ask that you set aside the time for yourself.

“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 undertook a successful career change in 2010 and experienced first-hand how it can be done. She now proudly runs a successful private coaching practice while also working in the not-for profit and social enterprise sectors.
Imposter Syndrome: In 2018 Nazish carried out a series of interviews of female international human rights lawyers from all over the world about their experiences of Imposter Syndrome. Combining this global scale learning with her own coaching experience means she has an in-depth and unique understanding of Imposter Syndrome and the coaching tools and strategies that can help to overcome it. She regularly delivers talks, seminars and workshops on the topic.
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.

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)

“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)
