I’m Maria Smart, a qualified professional Coach and founder of In the Flow Coaching.

I work predominantly with individuals who are at transitions points in their careers, supporting them in areas such as career development and change. Whether they are a first time manager or stepping into a senior leadership role; seeking to develop management, leadership and business skills or considering a change in career direction.

I have over 20 years experience in operations and HR, including working at board level as a HR Director for an exclusive London property management company. I combine my post graduate training in Business & Personal Coaching with my extensive management experience to support and enable my clients. I work with professionals from both private and public sector, including property, hospitality/leisure, professional services and technology.

My coaching style is suppotive, yet challenging, enthusiastic, fun and focussed on helping my clients identify and attain their personal and professional goals.

What about me? I have lived in London and Australia and am now settled in West Sussex which for a fresh air junkie is perfect. I’m close enough to the South Downs and Brighton to enjoy some great walks and only a short train ride from London, so I can get my city fix. I love planning travel adventures, whether to far flung places such as trekking in Bhutan or closer to home and when I’m not looking at a map of the world I love spending time with friends and family which usually involes good food, wine and lots of laughter.
