Career Coaching

As your Career Coach I will help you make effective career choices. You’ll find out who you are, and what career options are best for you.

If you are you unhappy in your job, I have the career coaching expertise to help you decide on the career change that will be right for you. My work as a Career Coach will help you get clarity in decision making, explore options and create an action plan.

Are you happy in your current job?

Career Coaching will help you discover fulfilling work.

Maybe you are dissatisfied in your career, or perhaps you have yet to find your dream job. Maybe you have experienced frustration trying to do this on your own. If you are ready for some assistance I can help.

Many of us fall into a career without giving it much thought. We don’t take account of what’s important and can get seduced by the money. Or we were chasing someone else’s dream. Many of my career coaching clients chose medicine or law to follow a parent’s dream or because it is a high-status job. Our late 20s can be when we first have these feelings of dissatisfaction. This can return in our 40s and 50s when we know that now is the time to get career fulfilment.

With over 30 years’ experience, I have the knowledge and expertise to get you to where you want to go. I draw on theory (I’m very well qualified as a Chartered Psychologist and Registered Career Development Professional) and thousands of hours working with people like you. People who felt lost amongst the many options or lacked confidence to make a change. I work with people at different life stages but they share the same objective – to find happiness and fulfilment in their work.

Career coaching results in increased self-awareness, clarity of focus and a plan for achieving career goals. Goals based on both realism and personal objectives. My career coaching will support you to achieve your objectives. I’ll support you to make the career change that is right for you. I won’t tell you what to do but I’ll open your mind to possibilities and then help you decide.

I work with people at different life stages

1. Students and Graduates

I work with younger clients from 15 upwards. Read more about how I can help young people, before age 18 here.  For students and Graduates the Career Assessment Package or Gold Programme are good choices.

2. Early career, or yet to get started 

Maybe you’ve recently graduated, or been in a job a few years and realise you have made the wrong choice. You want to get it right this time. I offer a cost-effective career assessment programme combining powerful exercises and the renowned Highlands Ability Battery. This is the Career Assessment Package. Prefer to go deeper? My award-winning Gold Career Programme is ideally suited to recent graduates and people in their late 20s/30s.

3. For people in mid-career ready to make a change.

You’ve had a successful career and you earn a good salary – perhaps people even envy where you are – and yet you’re no longer happy. This career no longer works for you, perhaps never did. In fact, it’s starting to cause you stress. It’s impacting other areas of your life – your relationships, your family, even your health and happiness. So where do you go now? This is not a simple question when you have financial commitments, a mortgage, a partner, a family. How do you get the headspace to find new options, make a considered choice and know that it will work for you? This is why I created the Platinum Programme.

4. 50+ Career Coaching

When you want to make a career change or look at wider life options. When you want to take stock, and decide on the way forward. I’ve a separate website for people in their 50s and 60s covering wider life issues alongside careers. You may want to start planning for retirement (whenever that may be) or find out more about my evidence based retirement coaching.

 

Career Coaching Options

Based on my work with literally thousands of clients I offer 4 options, alongside individual sessions to focus on your specific needs (including how to get promoted, ways to raise your profile, transitions to self-employment and finding how to have greater meaning in life).
