You are at a stage in your career where you feel ready to step up. However, something is holding you back. And, that something, is… YOU. The dragon of Imposter Syndrome breathes fire over your ambition, telling you, you can’t, you’re a fraud and <insert self-doubt talk here>.

The truth is, you spend most of your life working. So, don’t you deserve to be in a career that fulfils your values, abilities and aspirations? Being unhappy, unfulfilled and underpaid in your career will over time manifest itself into something pretty ugly.  It will start to impact other aspects of your life, from your relationships to your mental wellbeing to the ability to step up in other areas, such as travel and buying a house.

I get it. You bury your head in the sand and hope for the best. But where does that get you?

That is where I come in.

Together we will work on building confidence, harnessing resilience, creating a personal branding and developing that all-important career plan. Each programme is personalised to you, so you can achieve your desired outcome. My career coaching programmes work across a three-phased methodology:

Discover & Establish

Before our first session, I will send over a short questionnaire to drive self-discovery. This will be an aid to uncover your career aspirations as well as self-development areas that you would like to work on. We will go through your answers, work on establishing your values and draw out a clear vision.

Build & Learn

With your aspirations in mind, we can explore and identify your blockers and develop new approaches to remove limiting beliefs. You will develop a growth mindset to enable you to progress and step up in your career.  Your aspirations will turn into clear and concise career goals.

(Between each session there will be activities for you to complete which are optional).

Implement & Sustain

Together, we will set ambitious and achievable goals in a bespoke career plan. You will end your programme not only ready to level up, but also able to: Lead with authenticity and drive,  Feel and be more confident, Master the power of your personal brand and comeback stronger after set-backs.

Imagine your future self

You decided to stay where you are. You chose security and comfort over challenges and adventure. Perhaps you see your colleagues and your friends climb the career ladder. They are content, fulfilled, paid adequately and have a fantastic LinkedIn page.

You still in your mediocre role.

Still underpaid, underutilised and underappreciated.

Is that the future you hope for?

Didn’t think so. 

Take your seat at the table

Before we start – we will have an initial free 30 minute video call to establish chemistry, discuss any challenges you are facing and of course, your understanding of career coaching.

After our call I will send over a proposal which takes form as a contract. This document will include time-frames, costs and contact details.

Career Coaching, to me, is about empowering professionals to progress and grow.

As your career coach:

  • I look and focus on the current situation and create action goals to help you move forward.
  • I will assess where you are and encourage and challenge you.
  • Together, we will define outcomes, results and accomplishments.
  • I will never tell you what to do, but will support you through decision making, and give you the time and space to talk about how you’re feelings and establishing your goals.

The aim of career coaching is to help you understand what you want, the skills you need and how you can develop. As your career coach, I will support you in making these initial step.

My own personal career journey is a success story in itself. I started working on as a junior on an IT Service Desk. By taking on new opportunities, being very curious and always challenging the status quo, I have progressed up the career ladder from to finally landing a senior management position.

I have encountered so many challenges along the way, from lack of support or access to coaching, to bad company cultures with glass ceilings and, of course, the gender pay gap.  I have experienced first-hand damaging situations that can so easily cause self-doubt, yet have found and grasped opportunities to shine and progress.

The truth is, it’s hard being a woman in business and harder still being a woman with ambition.

So, come along with an open mind, accountability, commitment and drive. I will be setting tasks for you between each career coaching session and I may ask you to provide 360 feedback from colleagues and friends. As with all things, the more effort and time you can put in, the greater the results!
