Hi I'm Lucy

Hi I'm Lucy

In-person and virtual Career & Mindset Coach, working with ambitious women to break down barriers, build a growth mindset & lead in career confidence. 

I have been in the corporate world for over 10 years. Working in IT, specifically Service Delivery Management; within Retail (head office) and Financial Services. I started my career as a Junior Service Desk Analyst. Then, worked my way to (almost) the top. I have managed strategies, global teams and budgets. I have been the only female in the room. The pink dress, in the ocean of grey suits. Presented to large and global groups, without prior notice.

So, you see, I know what it is like to grow and progress, along with, overcoming obstacles as you build your career. I also know how it feels to aspire to step up to the next level but not also not being too sure on how to put one foot, in front of the other.

As Career & Mindset Coach, I specialise in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis. Each programme is designed around your desired outcome and typically is over the course of 6 sessions with a maximum 4 weeks between each coaching 1:1 session. 

Services

What I Offer

Career & Mindset Coaching

 Using different tools, techniques and communication styles to provide tailored career coaching programmes. I work individuals on a 1-2-1 basis and I also work with corporations, delivering coaching sessions to rising stars or group sessions to build a leadership team. ​

 

Speaker & Contributor

With my over-arching aim to encourage and empower women to develop a growth mindset and be confident in their careers – I write articles for up & coming platforms as well as feature on podcasts.

Community & Networking

By the power of social media, I thrives on leading networking groups for women. Which is part of building a community.

With regular meetups which are designed to feel like you are meeting a group of motivated friends. We do not discriminate on level, career path or questions that are asked. Thus, we ask, you don’t either!

The networking groups for women, was formed because connecting with others is empowering in so many ways: to generate recommendations, and business leads, but also to gain feedback, to bounce ideas off like-minded people, to get hints and tips from others, to share situations and to stop that feeling of isolation that can sometimes happen when you are at a transitional space in your career and life.

Podcast

🎙 Speak Female, A podcast for ambitious, career driven women. From Interviews with amazing individuals on career, self-care, self-discovery and leadership to self-career coaching sessions, leadership language and why we all need to SPEAK FEMALE!

I can’t thank Lucy enough, her tips, advice and knowledge have helped me so much with my recent work, she really gets what it is like to work in an environment which is often dominated by men with few women in leadership roles. After a few years when my career was a bit flat, she really helped me to have the confidence to go after my own goals. I can say her advice is really paying off for me. I would recommend her to anyone considering a careers coach.

Project Manager

Lucy has been supporting me virtually on a one to one basis, coaching me through some recent big changes in my work and personal life. After every session I have ended the call feeling massively less stressed and way more organised, inspired and motivated. Lucy is so easy to speak to, she is extremely empathetic and very knowledgeable. Her tone is very calming and reassuring, she has a natural ability to make everything feel more positive. I can’t recommend Lucy enough if your looking for any kind of support or guidance in your personal life or career.

Recruitment and Business Development

I really enjoyed working with Lucy! I was initially introduced through a friend and had never thought of doing careers counselling myself but I’m so glad I did. I feel like from only a few sessions I’ve been opened up to a wider and more positive outlook on dealing with and directing my career in the right direction and beginning to acknowledge and tackle some of the blockages I experience. Lucy was more than welcoming and easy to talk to, I look forward to continuing the journey!

Speak Female:

Ambition isn’t a dirty word, and here’s why.

I am a host of a brand new podcast for ambitious, career driven women. From Interviews with awesome females on career, self-care, self-discovery and leadership to self-career coaching sessions, leadership language and why we all need to SPEAK FEMALE!

Speak Female means changing the meaning around words and phrases that are associated with women or in-fact have a negative association. For example Careerist. When googling the word, it came up with: a careerist person –“none of the women considered themselves high-powered careerists” or “a person that tramples on other people to get a-head” – How about changing that narrative?

The podcast is all about inclusion, thus guest are both male and female as well as come from different backgrounds from culture to career.

How to overcome the career slump

Do you get that MONDAY MORNING FEELING? I am talking about the 'urgh '😖 as you roll over to turn off your alarm. The lack of motivation, something I like to call the 'can't evens' 😞 and, perhaps worst of all, the 'I hate my job' is turning into 'FMLs' and 'I hate my...

Making an Exit

It was hard a decision to make. but once I had decided it was time to go from a job & Company that I fell for, to follow my own path that was more suitable for me and my career aspirations - I felt lighter, happier and energised. The truth is, how you leave a...

CV No-Go Zones: Things to not include or do in your CV

The truth is, writing a CV is an art form. It can take many, many, many attempts before you have a coherent document, that recruiters run through a system to pick out key words before passing it on to the hiring manager.  But once you have mastered your CV, wow!...
