What my clients say

It's been an absolute pleasure working with you.


You've helped me build confidence and inspired me to look at a different balance and ideas.

Thank you for helping me to think more broadly.

I've now found a role that is the perfect balance and challenge, allowing me time to develop new skills.

Finance Director

Karen is a great listener, provides guidance and was a fantastic support.

I had lots of mixed emotions following redundancy. 

During our discussions I realised I could still play to my strengths and had so much experience and knowledge to offer.

Thank you, Karen!

Sandra Freeman

I cannot recommend Karen highly enough.

During my redundancy Karen has supported me with career advice, CV support, strengths profiling and been there to listen to me.

Karen has a very kind and calm manner and this allows you to open up naturally to her. 

So glad you were recommended to me!

Lou Black

After exploring my Strengths with Karen I feel motivated to find a career that will give me purpose.


I'd been finding it hard to structure my job search and felt very overwhelmed.

I can use my strengths to do something worthwhile with my life.

Thank you Karen for your help and advice!

Kathy Brown

Your coaching has made me focus more on my strengths than my weaknesses and made me feel proud of them.

It's also taught me the importance of setting realistic goals and prepation.

Most importantly, it's reminded me of all I've achieved so far and that gives me massive confidence going forward.

Jack Carmichael

Karen gave me a lot of confidence in myself and made me trust in my skills.

I would like to highlight her positive energy, empathy and kindness.

After a meeting with her you feel you can accomplish whatever you want with positivity and without fear.

I now feel self-confidence, have goals and ready to face new challenges.

Thank you for your time and commitment to me!
