I'm both a personal and business coach, helping people 18+ to go further in the workplace: what you might enjoy most and where your personality and skills would best fit. Sessions are typically 1 hour, but can be for 2 hours, and a block of sessions can be booked. The focus is on your hopes, aspirations and goals, helping you to find you own solutions and go forward with confidence - ultimately, you won't need a coach!
Are you stuck and not sure how to go forward?
Do you feel under confident - would it help to have someone supportive to listen?
Have you had a lot of disappointment with jobs/in the job market/been made redundant and need someone to help you turn that around?
I have ideas and techniques that will give a different perspective and new insights into the situation you may be facing.
(Because I will have other clients, please be ready to start on time as sessions must finish at the pre-arranged time. If you need to re-schedule a session, 48 hours advance notice is required. If you give less than 48 hours notice, you will forfeit the session and the fee. I don't cover any of your expenses associated with the session.)
