Licensed coach: Helen Burgess

Cheshire based, offering face to face coaching in Manchester, Lancashire and North Wales. Skype coaching available countrywide.

I specialise in coaching individuals at pivotal moments in their career; enabling them to grow their confidence, expand their skills and build their resilience to thrive, rather than just survive through transition.

I offer a range of coaching options, from one off help as a ‘thinking partner’ to a programme over several months that offers a deep personal ‘exploration’, using psychometrics and neuroscience to uncover your strengths and values. At the end of the coaching programme you will have gained clarity in your thinking and a focused action plan that you feel confident, excited and energised to move forward. The first consultation to examine what you are drawn to (or are being driven from) is always free.

My career coaching is ideal for:
• Mid-career professionals who are successful but not fulfilled in their current role
• New graduates looking for career direction
• Men or women returning to work after a career break
• Individuals needing to ‘re-balance’ after a life changing medical diagnosis
• The employed who dream of starting their own business
• Individuals looking for promotion and career advancement

As your coach I will support, challenge and motivate you to discover your strengths and harmonise your passions in work and life. I am not concerned by your gender, ethnicity or age – as your coach I have no preconceptions or past history to colour my view. Having personally undertaken two major ‘career shifts’ including moving from employment to self-employment I can offer empathy, perspective and practical insight.

Alongside my practical experience I have a PG Cert in Business & Personal Coaching from Chester University and have been awarded Associate Accreditation from the ICF (International Coaching Federation).

In the words of one of my clients:
Helen’s intuitive coaching style mobilised me to acknowledge a difficult situation which needed addressing and start taking action to work towards a solution. Helen adapted her coaching style and techniques to play to my strengths and meet my needs, particularly encouraging me to use metaphor to get past the blocks of my conscious mind. Her non-judgemental nature and quality of listening enabled me to relax and achieve greater clarity of thought, increased energy levels and confidence in my own gut feelings. Thank you Helen.
