A bit about me...
My name is Carly Ferguson and I’m a qualified coach who focusses on helping people attain their aspirations in their career.
I started my own career in the competitive TV and Film industry working as an assistant director and then agent. In my late twenties I then made a career change into Marketing, becoming a Marketing Director working with FTSE 100 companies and global software start-ups. Despite this successful career, living in London, earning a good salary and travelling to wonderful places I decided to escape the rat race; I knew I wasn't living my best life.
It was at this point that I discovered how coaching can transform your life and career and support you in finding the focus and purpose that you are searching for. Coaching helped me gain clarity and in 2016 I left my job and took time out to travel and volunteer. This was something that had seemed a dream that I would never be able to do. Coaching had such a powerful affect on my life that I realised this was something that should be available to everyone and so I gained my qualification to enable others.
Today I run my coaching business alongside being a Marketing Consultant on projects that excite me. I finally get to enjoy quality time with my loved ones as well as nurture hobbies and passions I’d previously neglected.
My ambition is to help as many people as I can to find their purpose so that they can also enjoy their work, advance their career and lead a life aligned with who they are.

"Having had 6 sessions at the beginning of the year with Carly, I can honestly say she’s changed my life.
While I started working with Carly to build confidence and worry less in my new role, I gained that and so much more. Carly helped me understand the issues that cause me to doubt myself, understand my own personality more, as well as set goals for a future career I never thought I’d consider.
Carly is approachable and incredibly easy to talk to, and knows exactly what to say and when. It’s not easy looking at who you are, your strengths and weaknesses, but Carly made the journey very enjoyable.
I’ll miss meeting Carly every few weeks, however, I’ve gained so much strength and self assurance that I’ll never forget the impact she made and the work we did together - I feel like a new woman. I recommend coaching, and Carly, to anyone."
“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
