Zuzanna Malek

Personal & Professional Coach

As a qualified and experienced coach, I am hugely passionate about helping people to learn, grow, develop and flourish. I am constantly fascinated by what drives human behaviour and am interested in the science of wellbeing and optimal human functioning, with a particular focus on optimism, resilience, and post-traumatic growth.

Tapping into the research and evidence behind coaching psychology and positive psychology, I work with individuals to help them unlock their potential and empower them to become better leaders, create better relationships and experience a greater sense of balance and satisfaction.


Love of learning is one of my top strengths and, having trained in performance coaching in 2018-2019, I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology.

On a personal note, I am a London-based mother of twin girls and a rescue dog called Mango, I grew up in the Middle East and was born in Poland. I enjoy travelling near and far, practising yoga and connecting with the awesome beauty of the natural world. Nature is my happy place.


I see coaching as a partnership and I bring curiosity without judgement, listen deeply and create a safe, reflective yet challenging space to facilitate exploration, raise awareness, gain clarity and make meaningful, lasting changes. I use a unique, integrative approach in my coaching practice, combining research-based approaches and methodologies (including solution-based coaching, performance coaching, cognitive behavioural coaching and the use of strengths and mindfulness) with a compassionate, authentic coaching style. A holistic and person-centred approach is at the heart of the work that I do.

I undergo regular professional coaching supervision and adhere to the ICF code of ethics.


As an ICF-accredited coach, I have worked across a broad range of industries, including technology, marketing, charity and finance. I coach professionals at all levels, predominantly senior leaders and middle managers, on a wide range of issues, including confidence, imposter syndrome, communication, trust and relational issues within the workplace/team, personal and professional transitions, anxiety, stress & burnout, exploring purpose & meaning and mental resilience.

Before becoming a coach, I spent almost 13 years in corporate learning & development across various industries, my roles included managing global leadership development programmes, delivering language training, designing training products and mentoring trainers.
