Janet HopeWelcome to Limina Coaching and Consulting.

I offer uniquely personalised professional and career development for academics, entrepreneurs and others whose work is both creative and knowledge-intensive.

My clients are individuals and their employers, including universities and cultural institutions, small businesses such as technology start-ups, design studios and law firms, community organisations and government.

My primary methodology is individual and small group coaching, which offers:

  • a supportive space to reflect and decide on next steps;
  • an independent perspective, communicated with compassion and respect;
  • techniques and resources tailored to your specific needs;
  • encouragement and motivation whenever you need it; and
  • a flexible, fully responsive program that meets you exactly where you are, because we design it together.

For more information about how I can help you meet your specific challenge, please get in touch — I would love to hear from you!
