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 honest, warm and holistic approach helps me connect with my clients. In this partnership, it's the client who takes ownership of what they learn and of the outcomes in their journey towards achieving personal projects, life goals, career or leadership goals. 

My style is straightforward and I am not afraid to challenge. I will hold up the mirror to clients as well as hold them accountable in a way that works best for them.


I work with individuals and teams ready and committed for change and transformation. Some may already be very clear on the destination. Others may recognise the need for change but want support in the form of a leadership or life coach to find better alignment and have accountability along the way.  

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.
