Hans Schumann London, England
Executive Coach, Career Coach, Life Coach
Diploma in Personal Transformation Coaching, NLP Practitioner
I am an executive career & life coach and author of the self-coaching book: "Falling in love with your job", available on Amazon.
I offer private coaching (in London or via Skype) and career planning workshops.
I coach professionals and business owners who feel stuck in their career, business or even life in general. Most of my clients are in established careers but at the point where they feel either dissatisfied, unfulfilled or burned out. They don't know what to do about their situation. They just know that there must be more to life.
Life becomes inspiring and exciting if we know what we live for. How about choosing a career, job or business that assist you in fulfilling your own chosen mission in life rather than working to fulfil the mission of your employer?
Having worked in law and financial services for more than 21 years, I know how draining and soulless corporate life can be. But it does not to have to be!
I guide my clients trough a process that helps them find out what they really want from their careers and how to get it. My action-orientated coaching process combines tools, processes and models from world-renowned coaching experts with my own experience of overcoming years of struggle. Together we lay the foundations for living an inspired and fulfilled life.
Whilst most people come to me to work on their careers, the breakthroughs you can create with me will have a positive impact on other areas in your life too.
My integrated style combines traditional coaching processes with a wide range of tools from various other disciplines, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness.
I am also trained in small business coaching, should you be interested in setting up your own business.

“I decided to meet with Hans as I had been within the same industry for over 14 years and had lost my passion and drive. At the very first meeting, he opened up my eyes to where my true passion lay and over the course of the next few sessions, we then developed this further and explored various different avenues, career wise, that related to my passion for investing and personal finance. It is through Hans’s direction and support that I then had the confidence to embark on a new and exciting career within wealth management. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hans for those looking for careers’ advice and wishing to consider what could be a life changing decision.”– Gary Youssef, Director

"I came to coaching to better understand myself and find what it is that I look for in my work. Hans was a natural choice for me, he has an international mindset, an inspiring career, but most importantly an honest and caring desire to help. Following my 14 sessions with Hans I am confident with my skills, clear on my ambitions, and focused on staying fulfilled in my professional life. Hans helped me stay accountable for my life and my choices, I highly recommend him to anyone ready to make changes in their life."Ian Labat, Account Manager, Amazon Web Services
"Working with Hans really helped me to gain some valuable perspective both in my personal life and in my work. Indeed he helped me to realize how strongly these two things were interlinked. Hans helped me to regain a more positive approach in all of my projects and activities and challenged me to tackle difficulties with different strategies. This support has been invaluable in helping me develop a new outlook that is healthier and happier than where I was before."Ramon Casado, Co-Owner / Design Director at Bulthaup Johannesburg
"Hans has helped me focus on those parts of my career and workstreams that directly affect the future I would like to envisage. Instead of trying to balance work/ home life with multiple ideas that sit rather nebulously in the back of my mind, he has worked with me to review my values, streamlining my workload to those areas that will truly achieve my goals. I now have an idea of what I would like to achieve and Hans has given me a step by step blueprint to help achieve those goals. It starts with a book and I’ve started writing it!"Anand Patel – General Practitioner
"…when you went up on stage and started talking about values, what’s important, and how vital it is you be fulfilled and happy in your life because it’s brief and challenge is important, everything clicked. It was like a light going on, and I doubled-down on my commitment to myself."Sean Campbell, Santander UK plc
"Hans – I would like to thank you for working with me and my team at Santander at our annual conference. I have received amazing feedback on your session and everyone has said how thought provoking it was. We appreciated the time you spent before the conference talking through what we were aiming to achieve and adapting the pre-conference questionnaire following our feedback. Your session really appealed to people’s hearts and minds, your personal journey touched everyone. Once again, many thanks. I would whole heartedly recommend you to individuals or other companies. I wish you luck, however, based on your performance I don’t think you’re going to need it!"Carol Graham, Head of Business Quality, Santander UK plc
"Any professional seeking enhanced satisfaction and motivation….would do well to spend time with you."Dr Holger Garden, Bid Writer, Trainer, Coach
"Meeting with Hans was immediately mind opening for me. He enabled me to understand which things in my life I was genuinely unhappy with, which as I discovered was often different to what I had imagined. I have been able to make good choices as a result and I feel more aware and emboldened. Hans’s kind, patient and rather joyous support helped me to do what I couldn’t manage alone. Thanks Hans"Susan Pattenden, Restaurant Assistant Manager
"Working with Hans, I have achieved things I could not have done alone. He has helped me to re-assess my values, re-balance my priorities, and clarify my goals, with immediate practical positive results. Hans works with great insight, warmth and humour. I recommend him whole-heartedly."Elizabeth Mattson, Eduction & International Development Consultant
"From personal development right through to crisis management, working with Hans is true enlightenment. With Hans’s friendly, dynamic and always forward facing approach, I have been able to unlock potential and explore issues in ways I never though possible before. Thank YOU Hans for all your support and dedication. HIGHLY recommended!"Paul McNicoll, Dean, School of Design & Technology, London College of Fashion
"Over a 12 week coaching intervention, Hans has helped me uncover and articulate my personal purpose and values, and develop an action plan to bring those to life. While our discussions have led to clear results, we’ve also taken time to explore a range of topics, and the process has been very interesting and revealing. He has supported, motivated and challenged me, and it’s been a pleasure working with him."Nicholas Creswell, Vice President, Performance & Talent Management at Thomson Reuters
