Am I the Coach for you?
Explore. Clarify. Vision. Action.
I follow a structured framework allowing you to visualise your future career before, most importantly, putting a tangible action plan in place, to achieve your goals. You are centric to the career coaching process, which is tailored to you, so I work very flexibly - there is no "one size fits all" approach. Your Career Coaching programme will include access to a range of tools to support each phase of the framework - putting some "science" behind our conversation.
I work within my own values - being non-judgemental, respectful, honest and supportive, but also challenging where needed.
My passion is people. After completing my Psychology degree, I forged a happy, successful career in the Recruitment industry. My career took me to Singapore for four years, which was an incredible experience further enhancing my recruitment, operations and management skills which are immensely valuable to me today - and massively helpful in career coaching! I have since married and had two children who, not only keep me very busy and entertained, changed my perspective on my career and working life.
Many people say they are passionate about people, but what I really love to do, is understand people's minds. What makes them tick? What holds them back? What makes them thrive? What makes them feel fulfilled? Helping people understand this about themselves and apply this knowledge in day-to-day life, to make conscious choices and action plans, really excites me.
I hit my own mid-career crisis, triggered by my priorities changing due to having a young family. This led me to navigate my own career transition to become a Career Coach, which I truly love. As I took the plunge to shift my career, I doubted myself, considered "can I really do this?", but the one thing that clarified my choice, and motivated me to put my action plan together to make this a reality, was the career coaching I received along the way.
I am a licensed, certified Career Counsellor and Coach, having completed my Core Skills in Career Counselling & Coaching via the Career Counselling Service. I am accredited by and a member of the Association for Coaching. I also have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and an international career of over 17 years in the Recruitment and HR sector.
