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'.

'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.

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
Focus areas: career change and Imposter Syndrome
Background in languages (University of Oxford) and international and national NGOs (conflict resolution, access to justice, social entrepreneurship)
“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.
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.
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)
