Hi! I’m Magda

A bit About me

“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” — Warren Buffett

As an independent educational consultant, psychological counselor, and accredited coach, I aim to empower individuals to set specific goals and create actionable plans to get there, as well as support them through the transition process. I offer a range of services, including university application support, career coaching, and transitions coaching.

I have worked in IB schools in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, in both teaching and counseling roles, and have been part of the IB Psychology examination team since 2008. This has led me to understand the university counseling process from the inside out: from an academic, as well as a psychological perspective.

In addition to my university guidance work, as an Accredited Performance Coach I provide career coaching services that support individuals in identifying and pursuing their professional goals. My transitions coaching services help individuals navigate major life changes, such as starting a new career, relocating to a new city, or navigating shifts in family dynamics.


I hold a College Counseling Diploma from UCLA, as well as a postgraduate degree in Counseling and Professional Coaching and Coaching Association accreditation, allowing me to merge tailored university guidance with psychological support. As a former University, Careers and Guidance counselor at one of Dubai’s premier international schools, I have successfully supported hundreds of students in their post-secondary journey to universities in the UK and Europe, Canada, US, Singapore, and Australia.

Being a member of the International Association for College Admission Counseling as well as the Independent Educational Consultants Association, allows me to work with university admission representatives from British, Canadian and US universities, to best guide students in realizing their academic aspirations.
