Claire Bolsover

As a career transition & life coach and hypnotherapist I work with individuals who
• feel stuck in their job/career, are no longer finding it fulfilling and don’t know how to change it; or 
• are facing the possibility of redundancy or changes at work are meaning that they are moving on but are not sure they want to jump into the same job again; or
• have had their “is this really it” moment realising they don’t want to continue on the same career path for another 20 years but don’t know how to step onto a different path.

This may be about making a total career change or it could be about tweaking what you currently do - where you work, who you work with etc - to make a meaningful change.

Often my clients notice a change in their wellbeing either at home/ work or both and know they want to change something.

Do you find yourself at a crossroads? Are you still looking to secure that dream job or are you facing important choices about the direction your working life will take? How should you deal with workplace challenges or find the right balance between work and family? How would you feel if you had a more satisfying and rewarding career?

I have coached a variety of individuals in areas like career development, promotion, coping with redundancy, making a career change, managing anxiety or stress and those returning to work after a career break.

Very often I speak to people who are miserable in their job or are unhappy with where they are, but they don’t know what to do, and they don’t see that they have choices. The initial focus for the coaching is therefore often around building confidence in order to create options.

I can then help you to reconnect with your strengths, expertise and capabilities because often people can lose sight of what they’ve achieved in the past when a job has become unsatisfying.

I specialise in coaching:

  • Women returning to work after a career break
  • Professionals facing career transition
  • Leaders

My coaching style is creative, intuitive, energising, empowering, playful and challenging.

I love helping clients connect to their values and strengths, develop their resilience and increase their confidence to find meaningful roles that are an authentic fit with who they are at their essence.

Joanna Hunek

Gloucestershire, UK and Poland

I specialise in Professional Life Development coaching which covers Career Coaching/Career Change, Career Progression, Professional Growth, Leadership Development, Conscious Leadership, developing soft skills for workplace and life.

For me, it is about building confidence and courage. It is about helping the people I work with to become risk-takers, conscious leaders and lovers of life.

As a Coach, I work with all types of professionals from start-ups to entrepreneurs, senior and junior managers and private individuals. I try to make the coaching process challenging, honest and, above all, authentic - so I can be direct, occasionally blunt and wholly unafraid of asking difficult questions!

Alice Stapleton

London, UK

Alice specialises in coaching individuals in their 20s and 30s who wish to identify a new career that offers them meaning, purpose, and fulfilment. Her 12-session Career Coaching package is perfect for those to want to change career but have little, or no idea, what they want to do instead.

Alice works specifically with graduates who want help finding work they’ll love after university, as well as early career changers and parents returning to work who want to do something different but don’t know where to start in making a shift into a more meaningful career.

Alice is a friendly coach in her 30s, who brings openness and professionalism to her coaching. She offers a safe, non-judgemental space for you to really explore what you want next from your career. Sessions are designed to challenge and stretch you so that you get the most from your investment. She’s a great listener with a positive and supportive approach when it comes to her belief in clients to achieve their career goals.

Kent, London and the South East

We spend a high proportion of our waking hours at work and I believe that this should be both enjoyable and rewarding. With a focus on excellent performance I work with my clients to identify and apply the best version of themselves, regularly and consistently.

My clients range from graduates looking to be sure of which direction to take, promising talent dissatisfied or frustrated in their current role, returning mothers seeking to build confidence and find work that supports their life as a whole to people who have been in the same employment for over 20 years and are now considering a complete change in direction.

I use the Firework Programme as an opportunity to stop and take stock of who you are, what’s important to you and how you can best reflect this in your work. This may well results in a complete change of direction but it can also lead to simply redesigning a current role – or even looking closely at how you turn up at work and how to get the most from it.

Jo Ball

Devon - particularly in the South Hams, Totnes, Dartmouth, Dartington, Ashburton, Newton Abbot, Exeter and Plymouth.

I work predominantly with people who want to make a positive difference in their lives and for those around them. I often work with creatives, people from a social care or voluntary sector background, changemakers and those interested in carving their own path.

I offer 1-1 coaching for mothers and also offer Firework for mothers returning to work.

In addition, I specialise in working with people who want to develop their inner resources to sustain themselves whilst creating external change.

My style is warm, collaborative, intuitive, flexible and creative. I love to work in-depth so, alongside your plan for a future career, you have the opportunity to develop practices and strategies that will support you as you step into your future. Getting the right balance of challenge and support can make a huge difference as you work towards a career transition so we work together to ensure this.

Marie Smith

Dorset, UK

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) who is energised by working with clients who are passionate about living their lives ‘on purpose’, aligned with personal values, making a difference in their own lives and also in the lives of  others. Or, if clients are not currently doing this, they wish to, and are intent on changing and moving forwards.

Specialisms Include: Leadership coaching and executive development - transitions and change, personal leadership, personal and team performance, resilience and career development/transitions. 

I am a leadership coach and executive development specialist working with senior people, CEO’s and business owners. I typically work with clients who are experiencing (or anticipating) the following situations:

• a crossroads in life, either in their career or private life, or both e.g. feeling jaded with their current role and wanting a new challenge or may have an unexpected opportunity to do something different

Becky Kilsby

Exeter (UK) and via Skype or Zoom calls for other locations

As a qualified career practitioner with experience in the UK and Dubai, I coach professionals who have reached a natural hiatus in their career, especially women returning to paid employment after a break, expats in transition to new locations, and 'escapees' wanting to explore a second or third more fulfilling career direction. I've developed 3 successful careers over 3 decades and across 2 continents, so I understand change and how to re-design life to match how we evolve over time.

As a career change coach I'm approachable, creative and focused. With a positive and global outlook, I love helping clients ignite their values, recognise their achievements and purpose to re-design the life and work in which they can thrive.

Janice Taylor

Will coach face to face at my home office in Brighton and Hove, otherwise Skype or phone.

I use the GROW model and my style is straight forward and to the point. I use a background questionnaire right at the start to set the scene and we can then agree on the key areas to focus on. I use models to facilitate our conversations, and the tools from Firework.

I am a career coach working predominantly with mid-career women who want to find ways to work well and live well.
