Caroline King PG DipCG, MA(Hons)
Hi, I'm Caroline, I am a qualified and experienced coach, specialising in careers and skills development coaching based in Edinburgh and offer online coaching across the UK. I use my coaching skills and experience to support individuals make an informed decision about what they want to do next.
People seek coaching for a variety of reasons. You may wish to change career direction but unsure where to start. Or you may know what you want to achieve but have lost your motivation. Alternatively, you may be facing redundancy and feeling a bit lost, anxious or excited - perhaps all of these.
Having made a change of career direction myself, I know what it feels like to be at a crossroads. Over the last 20+ years I have focused my career on gaining the qualification, skills and experience to support people to develop their skills and realise their potential.
My aim is to provide you with a safe space in which you can explore your ideas and options. Careers coaching is a working partnership focused entirely on what you want to achieve and what you need to do in order to get there.
I believe it is important that you find a coach that is right for you. To find out more about me and my coaching services, please visit my website. There, you can contact me to take up the offer of a 20-minute free complimentary consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed a post-graduate Diploma in Careers Guidance with the College of Guidance Studies in Kent in 1999.
For 9 years, I worked with many adults who wished to change career direction, wanted to improve the CV and/or interview skills. Others were returning to work after a career break, facing the threat of redundancy or approaching retirement.
In 2007 I completed my Coaching Diploma with Achievement Specialists and I am an Accredited Master Coach with the IAPC&M, the organisation that validated my coaching qualification. My accreditation means that I have accumulated over 1500 hours of coaching experience.
Over the last 11 years I have worked as a senior manager in the not for profit voluntary sector and used my coaching skills to develop the skills of managers in developing and delivering training and facilitation skills.

What my clients say:
"I saw Caroline for coaching as I was feeling overwhelmed with work and had lost my confidence and motivation. Through her clever approach, she helped me find the solutions within myself, with a few hints and tools. She helped me set some targets for small changes that made all the difference. I have regained my control and belief that I can change things. Caroline is a great listener and a skilful coach."
"Caroline's warmth combined with her engaging professionalism, active listening, feedback and use of meaningful tools and exercises were both reassuring and motivating. This encouraged me to focus on my values and led me to discover the path that I needed to follow."
"I would definitely recommend Caroline to anyone who is unsure of the way ahead in their career. She is a skilled careers coach, a person of integrity and reliability and with her vast wealth of knowledge certainly helped me get back on track."
