I was super confused about my next steps related to my career, and then Joanna came with the right approach and meaningful questions, which helped me a lot to see things clearer! It was one of the most productive days so far. I highly recommended Joanna Opoku for women that are struggling with theirs careers.

Jo is encouraging and engaging. She provides a safe forum to share concerns and to talk openly and honestly.
The coaching session was beneficial to put a development plan in place, and to prepare me for annual reviews at work. I was feeling stuck in how to proceed, but the coaching session gave me the space to talk it through.
I am now completing a LinkedIn Project Management course in the interim.
I would highly recommend Jo. The Zoom session face to face on screen helps build rapport and the detailed follow up notes Jo provides was useful to refer back to and build on the action plan.

Hi Jo. Thanks a lot for your help. I was worried about a new job because of my past experiences, and you really helped me to look ahead and not back.
What's even more important is that I've always wanted to be a language and yoga teacher. With your help I managed setting weekly, fortnightly and monthly aims.
And within a week I actually managed to get a yoga student and a German student! Now I'm teaching tons of people German and doing yoga. So thanks a lot 🙂

My first coaching session with Jo was motivating in a purposeful way and immensely helpful in my process to land an internship abroad!
She was able to pinpoint my struggle (the organizational tasks to accomplish everything I have in my mind) and provide feedback.
She suggested great tools and tailored her strategies to capitalize on my strengths and provide groundwork for my weaknesses.
All the while I felt very comfortable as Jo is a great listener who ensures she understands where you're coming from in order to ask meaningful questions.
I can't wait for my next session because I know that my actionable and realistic steps are within my grasp. And I can't wait to share with her how I've moved forward!

Working with Jo, I’ve realised the benefits of talking to a coach. I think it’s something everyone could benefit from. I’ve revised how I spend my time, I was able to gain clarity and focus, and accomplish two important goals I had been procrastinating over. I can’t recommend Jo highly enough.

After several coaching sessions with Jo, I've made a lot of progress. I'm much clearer on the direction I want to head in and I'm quicker to act on my goals.
With the help of Jo I narrowed down my interests, then I proactively found a role working at an alternative education provision supporting disengaged young people. It's a newfound passion!
I then succeeded in landing a new job for an NGO promoting the UN's sustainable development goals which allows me to work flexibly and to travel - ticking off several things on my wishlist 🙂

Even before my first session, Joanna gave me tools to start thinking about my life and priorities.
She asked really focussed questions, with a really positive attitude. She listened to me and helped to guide me throughout the first session.
I now feel like I have a clear focus with what I want to do, to feel satisfied, and she's helped me with making steps towards that. Bonus is that it's got me thinking about more than my career and it's also made me really reevaluate and feel excited about the future.

I would highly recommend Jo as a very professional, highly-skilled and experienced coach.
Jo helped me to be more actionable, focused, moving in small steps towards my goals. Jo shared her experience, which I found outstanding, because she has done it before.
