Hello,

Thanks for dropping by! It’s nice to see you here.

I believe that a satisfying career is within everyone’s grasp so my aim as your Coach is to help you achieve your goals so that you can …let your light shine” . Having successfully coached candidates through career change, I wholeheartedly believe that career coaching is an effective process that brings clarity about what you want from your working life.

As your coach, I seek to draw out your expertise through inquiry, curiosity and challenges. I support you to move into your best self to facilitate your career decision-making. To do that, using appropriate coaching models, I introduce self-observation exercises, assessment tools  and behavioural practices to enable you to achieve the outcomes you seek.

Why work with me?

I get you! I understand your experience of facing change in tumultuous times! In addition to my experience of going through various transitions in my personal life, I have coached Project teams through large scale operational change programmes and worked one-to-one with individuals who sought career progression or career change.

Redundancy can often have a negative impact on people, leaving them paralysed and unsure of what to do next. And, as part of my work I have been at the forefront of delivering redundancy programmes and I too have experienced redundancy. So, I know the emotions that arise when you hear that word! However, I am a passionate believer in the power of positive thinking and I am able to share my insights into what it takes to successfully re-program your mindset and visualise the positive elements ahead of you.

With a portfolio career, over a 20 year period covering roles in Banking, Education, Employability, Events Management, Health, Hospitality, Project & Programme Management, and Learning & Development, I know first hand the challenges that creating your career pathway can bring. My time working across the UK, parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, amd the Caribbean have shaped my inter-personal and inter-cultural skills which enables me to connect and readily engage with candidates.

Coaching Approach:

The emphasis of my coaching is on helping you to define your career goals, assess your strengths and build your confidence to succeed in your chosen path. This involves career analysis tailored to each person and creating a plan based on your values, key skills, interests and suitability for the role of your choice.

My philosophy, based on the holistic foundation of Positive Psychology seeks to help you identify your values, enhance your strengths and skills so that you feel comfortable and happy bringing your ‘whole self’ into the workplace.

I hold a Postgraduate qualification in Careers Management and Counselling, and have trained in Transformational Career Coaching. I keep my Accreditation to practice in this field current by engaging in ongoing Continuous Professional Development. I am a registered member of the Career Development Institute.

Let’s make those transitions!
