Career Coaching in Amsterdam or online

Hi. I am Elena, a career coach based in Amsterdam.

I can help you follow your passion and get a clearer vision what to do in life. If you feel a bit lost in your career path, it can be challenging to understand which direction to go. 

I can help you get clarity if you want to change a job or get the first job in your life.

We will make a plan in connection with your talents, ambitions, desires and values.

Let’s have a sample session. You can taste what it is like with me.

What is Career Coaching?

I am happy to be your thinking partner and brainstorm together. I help you move towards a fulfilled career. I can help you with topics like:

Career Development

If you want to grow in your career, coaching is the fastest way. Wherever you are, there are ways to grow and show up differently. Coaching grows self-esteem which leads you to the best and true version of your Self. A leadership role requires inner work: taking charge of your own life, dealing with limiting beliefs and true commitment to growth. Having a clear vision and setting value-driven goals help you see the strategy and take small actions that will bring you closer to it. 

Career Change

If you are in transition, it’s best to have a partner as a coach to explore together which direction to go and what is the most resonant with you. Sometimes choices are made by Saboteurs’ voices conditioned with fears that make us small and limit our vision. 

I will give you coaching tips how to deal with them and connect with the most powerful and true self to make a decision that will serve you the best way.


I strongly believe that we need to get fulfillment from what we do. Sometimes it’s hard to understand what is next and which step to take. That makes Career Coaching very important.

I guide my clients based on their talents, dreams and ambitions. My clients are students or professionals looking for a career change and / or growth.

Career coaching program consists of 4 sessions (500 EUR) or 8 sessions (900 EUR) depending on what your goals are.
I coach mainly online. If offline coaching is preferable, we can make an appointment in a coaching space in Amsterdam.
The sessions are mainly in English or Russian.
During the first discovery session we work on the coaching plan.
I ask questions like:

  • How happy are you in your career?
  • What change are you looking for?
  • What brings you fulfillment?
  • What do you want to get from your job?
  • Do you get energy from what you do?
  • What is your dream job?
  • Where do you want to be?

After each session you get a request or challenge for action for which you hold accountability.
After completing 4 or 8 sessions we discuss your results.
I can assure there will be progress on the way to the job you really like.


I’m a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC). I completed the Coaching studies in Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) in August 2022.  CTI is a pioneering organization in the training industry, accredited by International Coach Federation and others. I have worked for 10 years in the corporate world as a Project manager and Treasurer when I realized that my biggest passion in life is Self-Development and People.  I’ve done studies related to psychology, yoga, life management, health, nutrition, relationships and femininity. I have completed 300hrs Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Minds Amstelveen.

  • Career counseling has an educational approach to finding a job. A career counselor can also provide employment information such as industry trends, employment statistics, salary expectations and more. They also provide tactical support to find a job, e.g. refine your resume, write a cover letter and help you get into the interview.

A career coach:

  • Is a great listener, it’s the one who supports you and shows you the blind spot which you are afraid to look at. A career coach is a professional who knows coaching tools and uses them with a gentle approach. A coach reflects on your issues, identifies your issues and help you overcome obstacles. During coaching process you learn a lot about your Self and get tools how to manage your fears and anxieties and how to choose what you truly want.
  • Motivates you! Your coach believes in you, shows you different opportunities, and builds your confidence together with you. Your coach helps you get satisfaction from work.
  • Makes you more self-aware and guides you to make conscious decisions about where you’re going and how you can go there.
  • Facilitates your professional and personal growth. With this knowledge and skills you can create your own version of success.

I suggest to book a minimum package of 10 sessions. It will enable us to build a strategy, look at your vision and talents, take into consideration your limiting beliefs, have an understanding what can be in the way and take actions.

My husband and I had our first ever coaching session with Elena a couple of days ago. And I must say that it was not only productive ( we found answers we were looking for) but also very easy, comfortable and fun time spent. Elena is very dedicated to details, words she hear, emotions we experienced and she was pointing that, which helped us to see the real feelings and expectations we hide behind. Thank you, Lena! Very recommended for a couple sessions.

I got to know Elena during my Coaching training as she was the assistant in the course. She is a bright person and I really wanted to support her practicing for her certification. During our coaching session I felt safe, inspired, heard and motivated to take action. She has a great future ahead and I highly recommend her.
I've really enjoyed Elena's coaching session. It was very playful and fun to do, but its playfulness did give me plenty of insights into where I am, where I want to go and what I don't want anymore. It was light in its approach but not in the results. Elena's personality and energy make it easy to open up to her. She asks the right questions and understands people and their personalities very well, making her good at what she does.

During our sessions we explored self esteem issues, relationships and money and so much more! I'm looking forward to new sessions with Elena. Highly recommended!
Elena is an AMAZING coach! She combines empathy, talent, and fierceness in her coaching all the while holding the space for me to reflect deeply. Elena helped me determine where I was struggling and stuck. I walked away feeling lighter with much more clarity about my next steps. She 100% supports you to achieve your goals and uses her intuition to guide you in self-discovery and momentum forward. I felt Elena's full presence during our coaching sessions and I would highly recommend her! Pease reach out to Elena if you're looking for a coach!
