Carly Ferguson - Career Transition & Business Coach
I'm a qualified Coach supporting clients looking to make a career transition; from those seeking a higher salary, career advancement to a complete change in career.
Career transition coaching enables my clients to see through their core talents and skills so that they can choose the right career or develop the skill set needed for their present one.
Having experienced three very different successful careers, in TV & Film, marketing and now coaching, I have first-hand experience of how coaching can transform your life and career and support you in finding the focus and purpose that you're searching for.
With a background in marketing I can also combine my coaching skills to help small businesses and entrepreneurs define their goals, build their brand and create marketing strategies that will help grow or kick-start their business whilst ensuring a positive work life balance.
I’m a friendly, easy-going coach with an informal, yet professional, approach. I work best with clients who are serious about making changes to their lives and careers, and who are ready to make the most of the coaching process.
Having started my career in the competitive TV and Film industry working as an assistant director and then agent, I then made a career change in my late twenties and quickly worked my way up to Marketing Director working with FTSE 100 companies and global software start-ups. Despite my successful career living in London, earning a good salary and travelling to wonderful places I wanted to escape the rat race; I felt uncomfortable, stressed and frustrated. I was good at my job but I didn’t feel in control of my life and something had to change. I needed to find my purpose.
In 2015 I experienced coaching which helped me gain some clarity and shortly started training to be one myself. In 2016 I left my job and took time out to travel and volunteer with young adults in Malaysia Borneo. In 2017 I set up my coaching business which I now run alongside working as a Marketing Consultant and finally get to enjoy quality time with my loved ones as well as nurture hobbies and passions I’d previously neglected.
I want to help as many people as I can to find their purpose so that they can also live a joyful life as their authentic self.
- Are you happy in your work place?
- Are your ambitions becoming reality?
- Have you lost your drive, passion or direction?
- Are you embarking upon a big career transition or promotion?
- Do you dream of running your own business or escaping the rat race?
- Are you looking to get back to work after having kids?
- Have you experienced redundancy and lost your confidence in finding that next role?
- Do you want to eliminate stress or learn how to manage it better?

Through coaching, I can help you gain clarity and guide you through the process of setting meaningful and achievable goals that align with your key strengths and core values.
I can also help advise you on how to market yourself by supporting you with your CV, LinkedIn profile etc if this is something you feel would help.
If this sounds like something you would benefit from then please get in touch for an informal chat to see whether I’m the coach for you.

“Through coaching with Carly I have exercised the conviction to eliminate jobs I may have previously considered, a sign that I have not made fear jumps where i would have previously. She has helped me realise that I am deserving of a job that I enjoy and that it is possible to achieve a fulfilling purpose in work. I would highly recommend Carly as a coach for someone going through a career crisis”
"Carly's approach during coaching is always attentive, you know she is really listening to you. But she also knows exactly the right prompt, and when to say it. Sometimes it can be tough to challenge yourself and really figure out what it is you want or how you might achieve it, Carly has been fantastic for guiding me through this process"
Jamie, Filmmaker & Scriptwriter, Berlin
"I found the sessions pushed me to get started, and prompted me to take continual, accountable action. The way that Carly prompted me to dig deeper meant that I came out of the majority of sessions with a solution or direction that surprised me, and I don't believe I'd have arrived at the key milestones I've surpassed thus far without the process and guidance I received."
Sarah, Digital Strategy Director, New Zealand
