Careers Coaching can be helpful when you want a space to talk through your situation.

To get some clarity on your thoughts and some ideas to move forward. Our career coaching session is recorded, so you can listen to it again, and it comes with relevant follow up material.

Careers 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 want effective careers coaching, I can help.

Career Coaching

Many of us fall into a career without giving it much thought. We don’t take account of what’s important, we 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 25+ 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

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 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.

My clients age ranges from 15 – 70+ we can all benefit from career coaching at different life stages. I offer both programmes and individual sessions. I use reputable assessments, guided exercises, and a space to talk.

Careers Coaching sessions fall into three types.

I record each session so you don’t need to take notes and you can listen to it again.

1. To explore who you are

It’s rare to have an extended conversation with someone who will truly listen and reflect back on your life. This 90 minute careers coaching session includes completion of a personal information form and a review of 3 exercises: Character Strengths, Personal Values and Saboteurs which you complete and return at least one full working day before our session.  I’ll record the session so you don’t need to take notes and you can listen to it again.

2. A Career Review

The career review service is essential for your career management. Like a dental check-up or with a car MOT we might not realise there is anything wrong, but the dentist can remind us to floss more; the garage can tell us that our brake pads will need changing soon. Read more

3: When you have an issue to address

Do you wonder if you should change jobs? Do you feel stuck? Want help in managing any aspect of your working life? Then career management coaching is right for you.

Career management coaching is not just for when you are unhappy in your job. Career management coaching can help you develop your career, develop your online presence and much more.

Career Management coaching can help you to raise your profile and get promoted.  I can also help you create a better blend between work and your wider life.

I can help you:

  • Deal with a challenging work situation? – I’ll draw on my 30+ year career to help you with your options.
  • Raise my profile and win the promotion? I’ll share what works.
  • Prepare for an upcoming appraisal – I have a systematic process that works

  • Be more effective in my job/ life – you want the right work/life blend
  • Make the progress I want within my career? Let me help you create a plan to reach your goal.
  • Decide if I stay as a specialist or move into a generalist role? – We’ll compare options and consider the future, playing to your strengths.
  • Decide (take the job, study for an MBA, be honest? know if that promotion going to help my long-term future goals) – I can provide objective assistance in finalising a decision.

You may send about 200 words to describe your situation for me to review in advance.
