I typ­i­cally work with pro­fes­sion­als who are at at a cross­roads in their ca­reers, mums who are re­turn­ing to work or want to start a new ca­reer, and small busi­ness own­ers, to help them grow their busi­ness while get­ting the right work/life/ fam­ily bal­ance.

I ac­tu­ally made a ca­reer change my­self. I used to work in PR and com­mu­ni­ca­tions for na­tional char­i­ties. I’d been talk­ing about do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent for quite a while then, fol­low­ing a health scare, I de­cided to stop the talk­ing and take ac­tion to start my own coach­ing busi­ness.

Clients come to me be­cause they feel stuck, over­whelmed or full of self-doubt. In the coach­ing ses­sions I use dif­fer­ent tech­niques to help them ex­plore and ar­tic­u­late the ‘what, how and why’ of these feel­ings, dis­cuss how they would like their lives to be and build an ac­tion plan of steps to get them there.

We work through the neg­a­tive beliefs that might be hold­ing them back and de­sign new, pos­i­tive habits to help build their con­fi­dence back up.
