My Story


Hi, I’m Monica Browning. I'm a certified life and leadership coach based in Hong Kong, working with individuals, teams, organisations and communities committed to navigating the route towards greater clarity, confidence, connection and courage through personal growth and development.

People Matter

People matter to me. My passion for coaching lies in partnering with individuals and teams to find the balance between ‘being’ (who they are) and ‘doing’ (what they do). Too often, we're defined by what we do; in the process, we forget to connect with who we are and to show up as our true, authentic selves.  

Two Decades Spent Guiding People

I bring 20+ years of corporate HR experience with international organisations to my work as a leadership and life coach in Hong Kong. Through two decades of coaching, mentoring and being a trusted advisor to individuals and leadership teams around the world, I've come to understand intrinsically the challenges people face at work and in life.

My Approach

My style is honest, warm and holistic. My techniques include science-backed techniques/tools and a deep understanding of human behaviour to support you in gaining clarity, accessing your courage and multiplying your confidence as you move towards a life of greater joy, freedom and authenticity.

Coaching is a partnership. You, as the client, take ownership for what you learn and the outcomes of your journey towards achieving personal projects, life, career and leadership goals. As the coach, I bring my curiousity, reflect my observations and, with your permission, challenge and hold up the mirror in a way that works best for you. In this way, we also design together what accountability looks like and sounds like.


I work with individuals, team and organisations ready and committed to change and to being and doing their best. Some may already be very clear on their goals and destination. Others may recognise the need for change but want support to find better alignment, gain a different perspective, build deeper self-awarness and receive accountability along the way.

Above all I believe that my clients are naturally resourceful, creative and whole as they are. Many of us are striving towards having more fullfiled lives, more freedom and choice and being more effective in what we do. I will help you take ownership of who you are today and of who you are becoming. The strategies, tools and techniques I share are accessible, easily applicable and fundamental to accessing your inner resourcefulness, navigating life’s challenges, moving towards goals and thriving.

Asia, The Outdoors and My Personal Coaching Journey

Born on a Pacific island and raised in Hong Kong, I have a deep love for Asia. So much so that I've lived and worked in the region for 25 years. I'm now based in Hong Kong but I also offer my services virtually, coaching clients internationally


Along with people, I'm passionate about the great outdoors. You will often find me swimming in open water, hiking, and, when possible, sailing. The oceans and trails of Hong Kong and the world nourish my soul – this is where I feel most free and connected.  

Coaching helped me find my courage and confidence.  I know what it takes to be courageous and how challenging change can be.


 My purpose and my commitment lies in helping and inspiring you, my current and future clients, to help yourselves.   As your coach I will listen, support, champion and challenge (where appropriate) and I will share tools with you that you can use for the rest of your life.      

If my profile speaks to you, I would love to connect and partner with you through your own coaching journey of transformation.
