I specialise in working with women in their thirties and forties who are at a career crossroads and are considering a career shift. My 12 week coaching programme is ideal for those who want to change career but have no idea - or too many ideas - about what they want to do instead. I help them find and move into work that's more fulfilling for them.
Kori Burkholder is a Certified Professional Career and Life Coach, artist and facilitator of Self-Discovery Creative workshops. As a Career Transition Coach, she works with mid-career professionals who are no longer connected or inspired by their work and want to discover and transition into a new direction that’s more purposeful and rewarding, even if they don't know what it is! Kori has an extensive background in the creative/marketing/entertainment field and has transitioned careers many times over the last 20 years. Kori believes that work should be fun, fulfilling and rewarding.
I specialise in coaching young people post-university and mature career changers looking to make end of career decisions. I coach both one-to-one and in groups.
I have a down-to-earth, common sense approach to coaching. I use a strengths based approach to helping clients facilitate their journey of self discovery, and help clients to be open minded and practical when facing the choices in front of them.
I work with professional women who want to make more of a difference in their careers or better use their creativity at work.
This could be at any stage in your career – it might be the first time you've intentionally considered matching your career with your motivations, purpose and talents – or when you are at a key transition point such as maternity or starting a business. You might want to step into a new challenge such as leadership, or use skills that you have not previously used at work.
I also help business partnerships and teams to work more productively together, understanding how to play to each other's strengths and make better use of your diversity.
I have a warm and approachable style, creating a safe space for clients to stretch into their talents and explore their range. I enjoy working creatively and with intuition, building a strong alliance with clients, encouraging them to recognise their strengths and build the confidence to work through challenges.
Explore, dream and discover. How great would it be to do something you enjoy and to stand in your strengths?
Besides Life coaching, I offer bespoke Career Coaching sessions looking at your current situation and your ideal future goals.
You might be looking for guidance in e.g:
To improve communication skills
Back to work - Interview prep

A bit more about me:
With over 15 years’ experience working in both TV production and Media Recruitment, my desire to help, the want to listen, motivate and inspire has always been part of my story line.
I specialise in coaching professionals in transition to find a successful new career, business or life; integrated wellness coaching and business coaching and mentoring for start-ups, the self-employed and micro, small and medium sized businesses.
I work with values, energy, vitality and spirit. For those who want more structure, I offer structured programmes. Integrated wellness coaching combines dimensions of wellness into a quality way of living through a personal wellness plan. Key words for me are 'transformation' and 'healing'.
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.
I coach mid-career professionals who are ready to take the next step in their career but aren't sure what they want to do next or how to make a career change.
My coaching style is insightful, challenging and supportive. Together we identify your strengths and passions and create a career you'll love. We remove the barriers and build a simple roadmap that takes you from what you're doing now to what you'd truly love to do.
What can you expect when you work with me? This is best described by one of my clients who said, “You’re the sherpa I needed to climb my ‘Everest’. I had to do the work but you walked beside me, showed me shortcuts, made it easier and kept me on track till I reached the top.”
I work with driven corporate professionals in their late 20s to early 40s who are brilliant at what they do and want to take the next step in their career. Whether this be getting a promotion, improving leadership skills, boosting your work performance, getting a well deserved salary raise or changing career direction completely.
I have spent over 10 years working as an executive in investment banking and leaving the corporate environment to launch my coaching business, which gives me a unique perspective on the challenges professionals are facing within companies today and how to build a thriving career within organizations as well as what it takes to successfully change careers.
