Who I coach
Are you an early-mid career professional who...
- Aspires to be in a leadership position at work one day?
- Dreams of launching their own successful business?
- Wants to accelerate their career progress and realise more of their potential?
If you said YES to any or all of these, then you’re in the right place.
For years, business leaders across the globe have used coaching to their advantage. Be it to find clarity on important decisions, polish their leadership style or explore what keeps them up at night. Business leaders know that a conversation with their coach is time well spent.
But why should coaching be reserved for business leaders only? Why shouldn’t early-mid career professionals be able to reap the rewards of coaching today?
That’s why I got into coaching - to bring the power of coaching to a generation of aspiring future leaders.
What I coach
Though I am a "Career Coach", my coaching focuses on you as a whole person. So though the topic we focus on may be a career topic, like "finding your ideal career path", we address this topic with all of you in mind - your motivations, values, strengths, fears and unique qualities.
Career direction and change, resilience and confidence are popular topics for my clients, but we can address any career question, topic or challenge together.
Here's a snapshot of the types of questions we could explore:
- How can I find work that lights me up inside and that pays enough?
- How can I overcome my nervousness in senior meetings?
- What can I do to gain greater work/life balance, when I’m only just hitting deadlines with my current hours?
- What can I do to get promoted more quickly?
- What does “success” look like and mean to me?
- Where do friends and relationships fit into my busy job?
- Is my current career path in line with what really matters to me?
- How can I feel more motivated and find the energy to do what I’ve been putting off?
When I coach
I coach on weekday evenings and on weekends. I also offer sessions online and over the phone, so you can be coached from the comfort of your own home.
What to expect from my coaching
Five key ingredients underpin my coaching mindset, which you will always receive from me:
Safe: I create judgement-free, confidential spaces
Present: I give my total attention in every moment
Curious: I assume nothing is obvious
Courageous: I ask the difficult questions that make the difference
Unwavering: I believe in my clients more than they might believe in themselves
In terms of what it feels like in a session, here's a little bit more on what you can expect from me:
- I listen, observe and ask questions
I add value by listening carefully to you, observing and asking questions. For most people, this is a totally new experience. We’re so used to receiving advice from friends and family, that to be listened to for 60 minutes can at first feel odd. The results, however, speak for themselves. Clients who receive quality attention report that the quality of their thinking improves. Coupled with powerful questions and insightful observations, clients are able to go much further with their topic or challenge than they ever could on their own. The end result? You'll feel a greater sense of control and ownership over your career, more clarity and confidence.
- I help you to optimise your mindset
It’s not only your technical skill set that matters in your career. As your Career Coach, I help you to notice and question your mindset - something a lot of us often underestimate the power of. Using proven exercises, visualisations and questioning techniques, we will explore the strengths and weaknesses of your self-talk and thinking patterns, so that mentally you can take control and be at your best. In doing so, you will learn a huge amount about yourself: what matters to you, motivates you, scares you and excites you.
- I enable you to dream big
Okay, I admit, this one sounds really clichéd. But it’s important, because so many of us play small when it comes to our careers. Why? Because when we dream big, we dislodge ourselves from our comfort zones and things start getting scary. As your Career Coach, an important part of my role is to expand your horizons and to challenge your perceptions of what is possible.
- I help you to make decisions and take action towards meaningful goals
Where a mentor might set a goal for you, I believe that you are best placed to make your own decisions and to set your own goals. Who am I to tell you to “go for that promotion” or that it’s “time to change jobs”? Instead, I help you to set goals that really matter to you - goals that motivate you intrinsically and tap into your core values.
When someone coaches careers for a living, it’s helpful I think to know a bit about their own career.
On graduating from Oxford University, like many ambitious graduates, I went into consulting. The work was challenging: I ran project teams to deliver new strategies and propositions for blue-chip multinationals across a variety of sectors, from media and finance, to tech and auto. But I realised I could be playing more to my greatest strengths and interests at work.
These days I divide my time between offering Career Coaching for aspiring early-mid professionals and Behaviour and Culture Change Consulting for organisations. In both cases, I find the work fascinating and continually rewarding: be that helping individuals to maximise their career, or fostering more inclusive and psychologically safe workplaces.
A potted overview of my career history, but I hope a helpful one.

Areas of coaching I deal with
I offer a free-of-charge, 30-minute sample coaching session to anyone looking to experience career coaching. This is 30 minutes to explore any topic or challenge you choose, scheduled at your convenience. I’ll also send you a short questionnaire in advance to help you decide which topic or challenge would be most useful to receive coaching on.
The purpose of this sample session is two-fold:
- It will give you a great insight into what coaching is like
- It will help us both decide whether we’re a good coaching fit
At the end of the session, we’ll chat about how you found the experience. Both of us can walk away from the coaching relationship at this point - there’s absolutely no pressure either way. Alternatively, if it’s a great fit and you’d like more coaching, we can talk about embarking on more coaching together.
Drop me a line for the free session.
Fees available upon request.
- Weekday evenings (Mon-Fri): 6pm - 9pm
- Weekends: any time
“Professional coaching has been a phenomenal journey to self-discovery and encouragement. This has been a pivotal moment in my career; with Euan’s support I’ve transitioned to a new role taking on a wider remit equipped with the necessary confidence and resilience to be setup for success. Thank you, Euan, for your passion and dedication - it has been a remarkable process."
JOCYLENNE, HEAD OF TRANSFORMATION, TELECOMMS COMPANY
“As a confident self-starter, I struggled initially to see the value of coaching - what could a coach tell me about myself that I didn't already know? In response, Euan was patient and inquisitive. He led me through a number of structured exercises to help me define my core goals and uncovered a number of limiting beliefs preventing me achieving them. Our work together helped me establish a clarity of purpose which ultimately led to a successful career transition from the private to the public sector. I would strongly recommend anyone considering their career next steps to do the same."
JAMES, HM TREASURY
“Euan was absolutely fantastic. His calm, thoughtful and perceptive style not only put me at ease but helped me open up to him and really get the most out of coaching. He allowed me to identify habits in my way of thinking that held me back and provided me with the skills to take control. It has had a wonderful impact on my life from feeling more confident to allowing myself to relax. I would recommend his services to anyone."
REBECCA, EDITOR AT A MAJOR PUBLISHING HOUSE
"I had the unique opportunity to define what my current role at work could look like in a year. This was incredibly exciting but also quite overwhelming. I had lots of ideas of what my perfect role might look like but was finding it really hard to translate that into something tangible.
Over a 2-month period of weekly sessions with Euan, we deeply explored my values, motivators, fears, key strengths, skills and goals. Each session brought up new unexplored themes that we worked through together. Euan was able to provide the structure, space and the support that I needed to make some real breakthroughs and to gain clarity on what I really want from my career.
Not only was I able to build a detailed description of the role I want but also have a plan in place for how to make that happen. We covered many other topics along the way that have left me feeling more confident in myself and more sure than ever about what I want to achieve both short term and long term. Working with Euan has accelerated my career progress and thinking by months if not years. I will certainly be having more sessions with Euan in the coming months."
