ricochets of a stone on water
 “Make your stone skip forward !”
Our name defines who we are and how we work. Ricochet in French means stone skipping. And this is exactly how we visualise the coaching process:
  • When you throw a stone in the water, it can sink…
  • or you can spend time picking up the right stone, waiting for the right conditions and refining your movement till your stone keeps skipping across the water..!
The benefits for you
  • Renewed confidence : “ you can definitely make your stone skim across the water! “
  • More control :  “ You have gained insight on where and how to throw your stone so that it goes where you want it to go ”
  • Back in action ! “ You have a go at it ! ”
Our Coaching style

Our coaching style is:

  • Warm
  • Results driven
  • Energy giving



What we do

career coaching
What our clients say

“I worked with Olivia on preparing a comeback to the job market. She’s been a wonderful help for me and more precisely I gained confidence and realised my work experience was valuable and interesting for a company I’m very happy to say I got the job I was looking for.”

Nathalie C., International Product Manager, went back to work after a family relocation

  • Whatever happens in your career – relocation, promotion, redundancy, maternity – we will help you bounce back and aim even higher!
  • We won’t tell you what to do though. Coaching is all about asking questions that make you think about the best course of actions going forward. You will own the change, we will facilitate it!
