Marianne CraigAbout Marianne Craig MCC
Mentor Coach

Forever Scottish and based in the seaside town of Brighton in the UK, I work with coaches face to face locally, and worldwide via telephone and email.

About me and how I work

A graduate of leading coach training provider Coach U, I have been working as a coach for ten years and have delivered over 4,000 hours of coaching with hundreds of clients. I have researched and written the successful ebook So You Want to Become a Coach.

II am a member of the International Coach Federation and I am committed to its standards and ethics. I have been awarded the designation Master Certified Coach (MCC) by the ICF and am one of only a handful of coaches in the UK to have this professional accreditation.

ICF Master Certified Coach

I am also a member of the UK Association for Coaching. I have considerable experience of mentor coaching, having worked with scores of coaches in the UK and abroad. I am:

  • Director of Firework Coaching Company: We licence career coaches to deliver our pioneering Firework Career Coaching Programme.
  • I am also a founding partner with the social action project Mirus Coaching for Social Change:


A large proportion of my business comes to me through personal referrals and recommendations from clients who value the results they achieve from working with me and from the coaching process. I have been nominated for inclusion in the UK publication Top Women in Business and Government. I have twenty years experience as a business owner, coach and consultant and I enjoy working with men and women who want to make changes or who are seeking a more fulfilled life. I particularly enjoy working with people who, like me, feel compelled to make a difference in their community or in the world as a whole.

Wealth of experience

I am passionate about my work and I draw on my wealth of experience in my coaching. I am resourceful, compassionate and committed. I am practical with a sense of humour and my style is fast paced and conversational, with a light touch. I listen well and people value my warm intuitive approach and progressive attitude. I have faced difficulties in my life and I believe that the experience of overcoming adversity and moving forward has strengthened my abilities as a coach. Educated at Edinburgh and East London Universities, I have worked as a writer, research consultant, and senior manager. I have run my own home based decorative crafts business and facilitated workshops on rediscovering creativity. As co-ordinator of the Women and Work Hazards Group, I researched and wrote the best selling Office Workers' Survival Handbook.

Sound of seagulls

Originally from Glasgow, I have lived and worked in Edinburgh, London, New York, Geneva and Sydney. Nowadays many of my phone clients say they enjoy the sound of Brighton’s seagulls when I work from the garden or by an open window. The sound often evokes memories of holidays at the coast and reminds them of life beyond work…….


I have given back to the community over a period of seven years when I volunteered with Body Positive and the Sussex Beacon working with people with HIV doing relaxation and stress management work. I have set up Mirus Coaching for Social Change, with my colleague Alma, to offer low coast coaching to social entrepreneurs and community and human rights activists.

I have worked by telephone with personal and business coaches in many countries including Brazil, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand and many European Countries – as well as experienced coaches throughout the UK. My coach clients have also included people starting out on their coach training, and coaches training or trained by a variety of training schools.
