Retirement, Career and Transition Coaching

with Dr Denise Taylor

For over 25 years I’ve been helping people create the career they love. Gaining my doctorate at 64, I’m now also focusing on people who are in transition, including young people and especially with those considering retirement and life after full-time work.

Work with me to create a meaningful life. I’m an award-winning careers coach, a Chartered Psychologist, and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I’ve written eight books, written for The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian and many magazines, and was the careers expert on Radio 5.
