Career Coaching

Are you feeling stuck? Imagine a work life where your skills and knowledge are being utilised to the full, you’re learning and growing, you feel passionate about your work, you’re in an environment where you feel valued and you feel proud of what you’re achieving. Sound good?

Career coaching with me will help you see the possibilities out there for you, whether that’s the next step within your chosen field, or a complete change. Career coaching will build your awareness of your strengths and skills, help identify what you want and where you want to do it. Then together we’ll create a plan for how you can go out and get it!

Coaching with me gets results. I have extensive experience working with clients who want anything from help moving into a senior management position, to a complete change of direction, to a confidence boost to help them impress a new employer.

And I’ve experienced career challenges too: I have been made redundant, I’ve been in jobs I’ve really not thrived in, and those I have. I’ve changed career, I’ve returned to work after maternity leave and I’ve set up my own business. My personal experience helps me understand where you’re coming from. I will help you thrive during change, whether it’s change of your own making or change which has been thrust upon you.

I offer reduced rates to private clients to ensure you can access this support, and because I love working with motivated clients who are committed to making a change.

Are you looking for a complete transformation?

Do read the case study of Jon, a client who started working with me when he was a maths teacher, and who is now doing something entirely different.

I offer packages which will include some or all of the below:

  • Skype or face to face coaching sessions lasting 90 minutes where we explore what drives you, your values, your vision for how you want your life to be,
  • Coaching support to help you devise a plan and stick to it.
  • Exercises and diagnostic tools for you to undertake between sessions including seeking feedback from colleagues, all designed to help you best understand your strengths, preferences and how to market yourself

I am based in Sheffield, and even before Covid19 was doing 80% of my coaching work, often with international clients, via Skype or Zoom. In normal circumstances I recommend a mixture of face to face coaching, in Sheffield or London, and virtual sessions. However, for the foreseeable future all my work will be virtual – a medium I’m very experience and happy working in.

In this short video Steve talks about how coaching with me helped him identify the sector he wanted to work in, and gave him the tools to go and get the job of his dreams!

It has been overwhelmingly worthwhile, helping me over one of the most difficult points of my career. I really liked your practical approach; using the more ‘pure’ coaching techniques, alongside useful and helpful strategies – including sharing a contact with me which directly supported me and increased my knowledge of the career path I have now taken. It felt like I was genuinely listened to and my concerns and my inner voice were taken very seriously, but at the same time positively challenged, enabling me to find a new perspective.

Jen is really approachable and friendly and made me feel at ease straight away. Talking about your career and your successes/failures/weaknesses can make you feel quite vulnerable and I felt happy to talk all these things through with Jen.  She was excellent at making me reflect on what I had achieved to help develop my confidence and also gave me clear tangible next step actions to help develop my work readiness for a future job.

Jen helped me transition across sectors and supported me in understanding what I really wanted, and putting difficult work experiences behind me. I’d recommend her thoroughly.

I definitely feel a change within myself and feel like I am steering the direction I am on rather than being a passenger.

Jen has been life changing, she has helped me see a career rut as an opportunity, and colour in all the possibilities and actions to achieve my greatest ambitions in work and life. I recommend her highly!

Jen’s coaching helped me navigate a much needed career rethink.  The sessions were brilliant for structuring my thinking and giving me the confidence to commit to a significant career switch. I feel really excited about my career and its potential for the first time in a long time.
