Life is full of transitions. From aged 16 or 18 up to the end of our working life and all the stages in between. For 25+ years I’ve helped people find satisfying work, deal with challenging situations and create a life of meaning. I gained my doctorate aged 64, 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.

Career Coaching

A career coach with extensive experience in offering Career Advice for teenagers. will ensure that choices are well thought through and increase your teenagers confidence level. The investment is just a small percentage of the cost of even one year at university.

Job Search

You don’t just want any job – you want THE JOB. You’ve got a clear career goal – you want the promotion or to make a significant change. I’ve written 5 job search books, and provide CV reviews, Interview coaching and ongoing job search support.

LinkedIn & Digital Branding

An effective LinkedIn profile is essential for people who want to be successful in their chosen career as well as for job searchers. For 10+ years I’ve been helping people create effective key rich, high impact LinkedIn profiles with a clear digital branding strategy.

Retirement Coaching

Most people focus on the financial side of retirement, will there be enough money for their future life. Whilst money is important, your life will change significantly and planning for the non-financial aspects of life is essential.
