Career change coaching that empowers you to be your best self and flourish after redundancy or burnout
Are you looking to make a BIG change in your career?
Does any of this sound like you?
Following redundancy you want to make the most of the opportunity. You want to use your experience and expertise for something that gives you a sense of purpose, and you want the freedom of working for yourself. But where do you start?
Your career has been draining the life out of you. You know you need to make a change, to find a better way of working and being, but you have no idea where to start. You don't even know what type of role you want or what type of organisation you want to work for. And first, you need to take a breath and find yourself again.
You've decided to change your career but don't know how to present yourself. How do your skills transfer across? On top of that you've been with the same company for decades. You have no CV or LinkedIn profile and no idea how to go about getting a new job.
You want to find a better way to work and live.
You want to be your best self, living and working in line with your strengths, values and what matters to you.
Hi, I'm Karen
I work with clients from anywhere in the UK. Coaching people like you who want to make big changes in their career.
I was a leader in Financial Services and HR for over 20 years and one of my favourite things to do was coaching and developing people. I've got a natural talent for spotting peoples' strengths and achievements, and I boosted that talent by training as a strengths and mental fitness coach.
Now I combine my professional training with my passion for inspiring people like you to achieve your career goals.
Working with me is a collaboration. I'll give you the space to explore your ideas while also suggesting avenues you can try based on your strengths and what matters to you. I'll help you build the confidence and resilience you need to move forward. So you make the change you want to, with ease.
