About me

Hi! I'm Carys.  I'm a qualified and experienced career coach and HR professional.

I help people who want to change, or start, careers and also those who want to feel happier in their exiting roles; whether that's through building confidence, reducing stress & overwhelm, improving relationships, or professional development.  I also offer CV + Interview prep sessions.

Maybe you feel like a square peg in a round hole & know a change is needed but have no idea what or how.  Or, you like your current job, but overwhelm and imposter syndrome are draining your energy.  Perhaps you're bored, under challenged and want to move forwards, but don't know how to steer your career ship.  Or, you've recently left education/entered the world of work, and need some help figuring out which path to take next (maybe you've even quit your degree/course because it's just not for you).  Well, I've been there, and I think I might be able to help. 

I've had the pleasure of coaching secondary school pupils and uni leavers through to career changers and fellow freedom seekers, as well as senior leaders.  I believe deeply in the benefits of coaching, and I'm passionate about my own professional development as a coach; I'm currently working towards a Strengths Practitioner Certificate.  

I've also spent over a decade in HR & Recruitment, so I know a little about great interviews & CV's that stand out too, and I've seen how people flourish in jobs that actually suit them!  I've witnessed time and time again the power of working with personal strengths, cultivating and running great teams and developing confidence.

I'm compassionate & kind in my approach, but I'll hold you accountable when you need me to, & I'll challenge you at times - always gently & always with the intention of moving you forwards - which is what coaching is all about really. There'll be lots of exploration, deeper level thinking & reflection - that means I'll be asking you some questions, really really listening to you, offering new perspectives & using some helpful tools & exercises to bring you clarity & direction. 

I work with people face to face, online, or over the phone.  I also offer walk and talk sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I've been formally coaching since summer 2017.  I have a Certificate in Life Coaching, and a Diploma in Coaching from Warwick University.  I also hold a certificate in Performance Coaching, have taken a Foundational course in Positive Psychology and am currently working towards a Strengths Practitioner Certificate.  I have had the pleasure of coaching secondary school pupils and Uni leavers through to career changers and those wishing to building confidence in existing roles.  

I've also spent over a decade in HR & Recruitment, so I also know all about great interviews & CV's that stand out, and I've seen how people flourish in jobs that actually suit them!

I receive coaching supervision and regularly attend coaching forums because I want to be able to offer the very best coaching experience to my clients and ensure I stay up to date with coaching developments.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I'm happy to meet anywhere (within a reasonable distance) that meets accessibility requirements for the individual I'm working with
