Why I am the Career Coach for you
I understand what makes people tick
Over the last twenty years since I first studied psychology I have
continued to pursue my interest in what makes people tick, what influences the
decisions we make in life and how this has brought you to where you are today.
I have extensive experience recruiting and
developing people like you
I have worked for the majority of my career in two of the top UK
companies, PwC and the BBC where I conducted hundreds of interviews and
assessments at all levels, from graduate recruitment to Partnership level; IT,
Production and Managerial roles and On-Screen talent. I am trained in the use
of psychometrics and other recruitment tools and I have designed assessment
centres. I understand how the selection process works and will make sure you
are prepared to perform at your best.
I have over a thousand hours of career coaching and development
experience with all levels from Graduates to Executives, those looking to
change career completely, going through redundancy or struggling to find their
next role. I work with mothers returning to work after maternity leave as well as
after a career break raising their families.
I am a qualified Career
In addition to hands on experience, I have studied Career Coaching and
have a PGC in Career and Talent Management. My solid understanding of the
theories of career development underpins my practice. I am on the UK Register
of Career Development Professionals with the Career Development Institute and
commit to carry out ongoing professional development to keep my skills and knowledge
up to date.
I practise what I
I have both a mentor, a coach and a strong peer support network to help
me continue my own development.
How my approach works
I offer a free one-hour no-obligation initial consultation by phone,
Skype or in person to see whether we are the right fit to work together and
find out about your current situation and career coaching requirements.
Whatever you discuss with me then, or during our coaching time together, is
treated with complete confidentiality; I follow the code of ethics laid down by
the Career Development Institute to provide a professional, impartial and
My coaching style
I am passionate about my work and my style is warm, empathetic, flexible
and supportive. I take an intuitive approach though and will challenge you
where needed. My process is highly effective but be prepared to work hard to
see the changes you want to make!
When I’m not coaching, I enjoy spending time with my young family, preferably outside and somewhere warm and sunny!
Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
