Career Change Is Possible

thank you signage

“When I first heard about career coaching I was feeling very bad about my job. I had gotten to a point where I felt very stuck, increasingly stressed and was not happy. I was very sceptical about careers coaching, I felt like it would just make me feel worse and that I already knew the solutions to my problems but was just powerless to do anything about them. 

With every session from the very first one I have gone in feeling very low and come out with a new energy and with some positive actions to go away and make things happen. The sessions have had a positive effect on how I view my work life but have also helped me significantly with my home life and stresses outside of work. I have found the sessions a really good forum to voice my frustrations in a safe environments and to get support in identifying what is wrong, why it affects me so much and what I can do to address it. I have learnt a lot about myself, what I want from a career and have ultimately ended up finding a different role that matches better with my core values.

Before going into the careers coaching I didn’t know what I wanted, I just knew I didn’t want what I had. Now I have a much clearer picture and am genuinely excited to make the next steps (transition) and work towards a clearer goal. I am incredibly grateful for the help I have received and would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with their work life.” ~ SL

Wishing you all a MERRY Christmas and an abundant New Year!

Walk in Peace;

Walk in Beauty

Benefits of my coaching At some point in all our lives we face challenges but just talking to family, friends or Doctors isn’t going to be enough or adequately dealt with, though they mean well. They will unknowingly, be biased with their own view of life and try and fix you.

There are times when you want to speak to someone who doesn’t know you or your background and can listen, empathise and guide you to find your own solutions. I am experienced and passionate about coaching as it’s a journey of adventure into the unknown. I ask questions that allow you to reflect on your life and as you do you can begin to see the world as it is without confused perceptions drawing out your inner greatness with clarity, without me projecting or judging.

There isn’t a one size fits all solution to people’s problems, and my coaching services are truly unique, having studied a wide variety of recognised counselling techniques, a combination of old and new thinking developments. Using a blend of NLP Coaching, EFT and CBT, we’ll get to the core of your thoughts, feelings, behaviour and bring out your true Self, identifying your life purpose and take actionable steps to making your goals and dreams a reality.

Some of my coaching programmes, are very structured with homework. And, sometimes it’s a less structured style, dependant on what’s going on with the client at that time.

My coaching philosophy is that I am simply a catalyst. I am not here to teach anything, as people already know it at a deeper level. I am simply here to remind people who they really are and draw out their own innate self healing.

I work with a variety of wellbeing issues including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, lack of confidence, relationships, anger, career, life/work balance and life purpose.

Before making a commitment, ask yourself if you are ready to change? And remember, change doesn’t happen overnight.

I am known for coaching, the life coaches and mentoring those that want to become coaches.

Based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and offer daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments.
