Coaching ambitious professionals to achieve big career goals

Am I the right career coach for you?

My style of coaching is action-oriented, which means I expect my clients to turn up, communicate openly and do the work. Our sessions will be both testing and exhilarating! In return I promise you a safe, supportive and empowering space to explore making your career dreams come true.

Together we’ll get clarity on your situation, identify how to be your own career champion, and put in place long-term accountability for you to get real-life career results. By the end of the coaching programme, you’ll be in control of your career fulfilment.

I know what it feels like to be stifled at work and held back by your own beliefs. I myself got stuck in my corporate career, wanting more progression and work that better fits my ambitions and talents. My own career epiphany, six years ago, led me to coaching and embracing a portfolio career that I cherish. Since then, I’ve used my 15 years’ corporate experience and coaching acumen to help ambitious professionals transform their careers – whatever career success looks like to them.

Coaching can be truly transformative. Through my programme, I’ve seen senior leaders get big promotions, change job sector, move to new cities and take on big challenges in their work life. I’ve also supported people going through less positive changes such as consultation and redundancy, to turn these into valuable career opportunities.
