Mission statement

I am Marie Haycocks, a professionally qualified Leadership and Executive Coach and founder of Certanovo. I am also a mother, and I am passionate in my belief that increased self awareness and confidence can empower young people to lead happier, more fulfilling, and more successful lives.

Working independently on a one a one-to-one basis, or within schools and colleges on group programmes, I help young people in the 14 to 21 age range to gain confidence in themselves and clarity about their personal and professional objectives.

My coaching technique offers a balance of empathy, support and challenge, which allows each young person to explore and define their dreams and their goals. Through increasing self-awareness and understanding, this flexible but focused approach helps them find the confidence to make meaningful life choices, setting them on the road to a career and life that they love.
