Thanks for dropping by! It’s nice to see you here.
I truly 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 various career pathways over the past 10 years, I wholeheartedly believe that career coaching is an effective process that brings clarity about what you want from your working life.
Why work with me?
Firstly, I understand your experience of facing change in tumultuous times! I have crossed those paths too as I have been through several restructuring/ down-sizing/ right-sizing programmes and have also experienced a redundancy so can empathise with you there.
Secondly, whether the changes have been sought or imposed, it’s quite challenging trying to navigate big changes on your own so I believe that it makes sense to get the right help at the right time.
Change can be emotionally taxing and at times impact on your decision making on what to do next. However, I am a passionate believer in the power of positive thinking and combine that with wellbeing support to help you re-program your mindset and visualise the positive opportunities ahead of you.
The coaching ‘fit’ or relationship between coachee and coach is important and I aim to engage with you in a relaxed and friendly manner… putting you at your ease! My time working across the UK, parts of Europe, Africa, South East Asia, and the Caribbean have shaped my inter-personal and inter-cultural skills which enables me to connect and readily engage with candidates.
Some of my professional highlights includes successfully working with individuals to achieve their career goals and coaching Project teams through large scale operational change programmes. I have also been a part of delivering company outplacement programmes and know the challenges involved there. In sessions, I share insights from those experiences with you to help you with your plans.
Working with candidates in Job Centres, Local councils, Third-Sector and Corporate settings have given me a good understanding of the employment landscape. With a portfolio career, over a 20 year period covering roles in Banking, Education, Employability, Events Management, Health, Hospitality, Project & Programme Management, Learning & Development, I know first hand the challenges that creating your career pathway can bring and I use all of these areas to your benefit.
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.
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.
I hold a Postgraduate qualification in Careers Management and Coaching, and have trained in Transformational Career Coaching. As an Accredited EMCC Senior Practitioner Coach and a Registered Career Development Professional with the Career Development Institute, I adhere to the professions’ Code of Ethics and uphold my proficiency to practice through ongoing Continuous Professional Development. I actively contribute to the EMCC UK membership where I co-host the Career Coaching and Mentoring Special Interest Group. As an Accredited Strengths Profile Practitioner I assess your strengths and what energises and sets you apart as you seek to progress in your desired role.
You can also find me contributing to the Rotary Work Clubs of Bromley where I support a local initiative to help job seekers who have lost their jobs, due to Covid, back into work and Chair the Bromley Borough Rotary Passport Club.
I look forward to working with you. Give me a call to find out more. Let’s make those transitions!
