Jacqui Purdy. Person-centered Career and Business Coach
I'm Jacqui, a professionally qualified coach. My practice is called 'Here to There' and my job is to help my clients get from where they are now to where they want to be, faster than going it alone.
Most of the coaching I do is forward-looking, focused on future goals, but I also work with my clients in their 'here and now', helping them to feel at their most energised, confident and productive.
Have you have arrived at a career crossroads? Are you feeling 'stuck' in your current role, wanting to move on but not clear where or how? I coach people who have unrealised ambitions or just find themselves wondering how they can better handle their current situation.
Energy, Focus and Concentration
We all have moments when our head is swimming with things to do and decisions to make, and it can feel overwhelming. I help my clients to harness their thoughts and establish moments of calm and clarity to re-find their focus and energy.
Confidence and Motivation
Do you wake every morning with a clear sense of direction and self-belief? I work with people who want to change things in their life and work but are unsure how to go about it, or don’t yet feel up to the challenge.
Many of my clients are looking to manage their career or business, rather than have it control them.
Are you and your team running at peak performance, or is there unrealised potential to be tapped? I work with business owners and managers to develop their own leadership and management skills, and the skills of their team, to best meet the needs of the business.
If you're struggling to vision and plan the next stage in your business journey, I can also help you to define, plan and track your progress towards business success.
Personal Finance Coaching
Are your personal finances affecting too many aspects of your life, from personal life to career? I help my clients to understand the beliefs they have about money, which can drive the behaviours that lead to financial shortage. I then work with them to set and follow realistic financial plans. NOTE: this is not financial advice or accountancy.
Training, qualifications & experience
My career has taught me a great deal about the pressures and challenges that are faced by businesses and the people who strive to make them successful. As a consequence, I bring insight and empathy – as well as realism and rigour – to the coaching relationship.
With 20+ years experience in the advertising industry, I have worked with clients in sectors ranging from technology to financial services to higher education, and with start-up businesses through to established global brands.
I have seen first hand the tangible, positive change that coaching can make to people’s performance, both as individuals and as a team.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I am a qualified DISC Personality Profile administrator. As one of the mostly highly validated tools of it's kind, it can help us unlock the 'people puzzles' in our lives. DISC equips us with a better understanding of our own preferred behaviours and communication styles, as well as those of the people around us in our personal and professional lives.

My fees are ‘programme’ based, which means they depend on how many sessions we agree would be appropriate, and how long we think each session should be.
As a rule of thumb, a typical programme will be four to eight sessions. I maintain a minimum programme of four sessions because my experience is that you're unlikely to truly reap the rewards from fewer sessions than this.
Our initial call will be a consultation, it is complimentary and will last around half an hour. During this time we can discuss in confidence which areas you want to be coached around and how we would work together.
“I have really enjoyed my sessions with Jacqui. They gave me the time to really think about and concentrate in detail on my business and where I want to take it. It gave me new ideas and also increased my confidence.”
ST, Business Owner and Artist
''The sessions really helped to pull out my values, priorities and goals in life. It feels very good to get something on paper and want to work towards realistic and achievable goals. It's changed my outlook on life and I now feel anything's possible if you really want it.''
ND, Healthcare and Child Development Professional
“I have loved working with Jacqui as my coach. She manages to retain a natural, relaxed and supportive style while still challenging me to think differently. My coaching sessions with Jacqui have supported my development and achievement tremendously and I feel in a much better place having worked with her.”
KH, HR Director, Public Sector
“I have found the sessions really useful as I’ve never really taken the time or had the techniques to help me move forward before. The sessions taught me to think about what I want in a different way. It’s helped break it down into manageable chunks too.”
AT, Marketing Manager, Music & Publishing
