Career Coach & Life Coach with NLP

About me

I am a licensed Firework Career Coach, and accredited Master Practitioner Life Coach with NLP.  I specialising in supporting people who are managing career changes or negotiating a challenging period in life.  I use science-based framework of professional toolkits, based on neuroscience resilience methods to increase motivation, or confidence. 

If you are constantly thinking "I just need to get through the day" or "I need to sort my life out" this is for you.  

I understand how pressured work and life can be, and the challenges associated with carving a role out that plays to your strengths, personally as well as professionally, where you don't have to sacrifice your sense of self or lifestyle. 

I have a science and communications background and I moved coaching after a career working large corporates and charities, where I came across many colleagues who were facing burnout,  over-achieving but underfulfilled, perhaps in an unsupportive work culture, where you need to trust someone who is impartial.  I wanted to provide professional, independent support for people in this position.

My coaching is science and evidence based, with approaches and techniques from career coaching and personal development coaching, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and positive psychology.

The programme are in 6 sessions blocks.  We will work together on your specific coaching outcomes for a more confident mindset or career path.  My courses take around 6 weeks, but can last a lifetime.
