I work with people who want to make changes in their working life and are longing for greater fulfilment in their career. Clients have often been successful in their career so far, but now describe feeling stuck or at a crossroads where:
- they want to do something that feels more meaningful or ‘right for them’
- they want to regain balance in their lives or are facing changes such as returning to work after having children or redundancy
- working out what to do next feels overwhelming; some have a dream but no plan, others have little idea yet, just not what they are doing now!
I also coach people in small/medium businesses or organisations who want to help maximise their own or others performance. I am experienced at coaching leaders and their teams on a wide range of goals including leadership, emotional intelligence, managing change, building confidence and self-awareness, MBTI and career development.
I work primarily with clients who are in a career transition. I tackle each stage of the career transition process, from creating professional goals; to working toward a promotion or into a new position; to completing a 180 degree career shift. I am also a mum of twins and work directly with Mums who are struggling with both career transition and embracing their newfound identities.
I take a practical and grounded approach during my coaching sessions and believe that we are ultimately one of our own best resources in deciding our next steps. Through support in identifying our unique values and resources we are able to work through both professional and personal issues, which are often closely linked.
I work with people who find themselves at transition points in their careers. This includes exploring career direction and supporting managers and leaders to develop their management, leadership and business skills so they can progress in their chosen career. While the backgrounds and career paths may vary the golden thread is they all want to be fulfilled in their work and are committed to making a change.
I work with:
• People seeking to explore a change in career direction
• First time managers
• People who have stepped from management into a leadership position
• People wanting to develop key skills
I am passionate about helping others realise their potential, develop and succeed in their chosen career, afterall we spend too much time at work not to be happy.
I specialise in helping people find a way through mid-life career review and change.
We might be a good fit, if you are in one of these situations:
- Facing redundancy and wanting to rebuild your confidence or review your choices.
- Out of love with your work; you want to do something else, but don’t yet know what.
- Considering self-employment or starting a business; you want to do something you enjoy, have more freedom and make a living.
- Returning to work after time at home with children or as a carer.
- You want to get clarity about your next steps and regain your confidence.
What my clients say about my coaching style:
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!
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 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
Career coaching for senior executives wanting to consider a complete change of career.
Entrepreneurs wanting to be more focussed and organised in their heads so that they can achieve their great ideas rather than letting their ideas slip through their fingers.
Prospective clients wanting to build up their confidence.
A silver fist in a velvet glove would be an accurate description of my working style...I hold a clean space for deep thinking and then agree accountability with the client. This accountability then becomes the focus of our good work together. I'm a skilled motivator and have been referred to as a 'motivational defribilator'.
After many years experience as a senior recruitment consultant I quickly understand what a client is capable of, which is frequently more than they see for themselves.
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.
