Juliette Dyke- Career Change Coach for Women
Do any of these sound familiar?
- “I feel stuck in an unfulfilling job”
- “I wish I could discover my passion, but I don’t even know if I have one”
- “I feel overwhelmed and stretched in a million different directions trying to do everything”
- “I often struggle with confidence and hear a voice in my head saying ‘I can’t do this’ or ‘I’m not good enough’ ”
- "I want to do something each day which actually matters, and not just contribute to my boss’s bottom line."

How can I help?
Hi I’m Juliette and I help women recognise their gifts and strengths, release the mental blocks and fears which are holding them back, and develop the confidence to create a fulfilling life and career they really love.
I take a very holistic approach and look at you as a whole person and how your career fits in with the lifestyle you want to lead.
We can work together to help you discover what really lights you up and gives you a deep sense of purpose.
Who is career coaching for?
I have worked with all kinds of people from all sorts of professional backgrounds, including Event Organisers, University Academics, Project Managers, HR Executives, Marketing Managers, Strategists, Designers and Yoga Teachers.
Some are still in full time employment, some are taking a career break and some are freelance, but what they all want is to discover their calling in life, do something they truly love and create more balance in their lives.
How do I work?
I am based 100% online and work with clients across the UK via Zoom.
Why work with me?
I know how important this is to you because I’ve been there and know exactly how this feels. I’ve experienced the daily grind of dragging myself to a job where I was always a square peg in a round hole. I longed to feel more fulfilled, valued and authentic, but instead just felt unhappy, exhausted and lost.
However working with a coach gave me the support and guidance I needed to discover what my strengths and values were, re-build my confidence and help me to see what I was really capable of. And I want the same for you too!
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited Coach with the Association for Coaching, licensed FireworkTM Career Coach, and a graduate of the Pure Coaching Academy, run by one of the UK's most successful life coaches Carole Ann Rice.
I am also a certified Positive Psychology Practitioner (known as 'the science of happiness') and have studied with two of the field's leading experts, Miriam Akhtar and Dr Chris Johnstone.
The tools and practices that are taught as part of this rapidly growing area of psychology, have made a huge difference to my own happiness, wellbeing and quality of life, and now I love to blend these tools into my coaching sessions so that my clients can feel the benefits too.
Prior to re-training as a Career Coach and moving to Brighton in 2015, I worked in London for 14 years in advertising and marketing. My own personal experience of burnout and career change has given me a deeper understanding of the issues my clients are facing, and now drives me help other women create a life and career that gives them a sense of purpose and happiness.

Areas of coaching I deal with
HOW I WORK
I use a coaching programme called FireworkTM. It typically takes about 12 sessions to get through the whole programme, and the number of sessions per month depends on the client but once a fortnight tends to be a good rhythm. We go through 3 phases called Explore, Dream and Discover:
1. The Explore phase helps you find clarity around what is most important to you both in your work and in your life. You get a clear picture of yourself which helps you to make better informed choices about your potential career path, and how you want your life outside of work to look like too. You work through fascinating and thought provoking exercises in between your coaching sessions and we then talk through your answers to highlight the most important information about you and what you really want.
2. In the next Dream phase, you come up with some inspiring new career options. And because you now have such a good understanding of yourself and your true desires from the earlier Explore phase, you can make well informed decisions about whether these options are a good match or not.
3. Then finally in the Discover phase, you’ll decide on an option that’s the best fit, and put together an action plan to get you to your goal.
I offer either an up front payment of £999 (save 10%) or a monthly instalment plan of £183 which spreads the cost over 6 months. Payment covers all your coaching sessions, learning materials and unlimited email support between sessions. If at any point you decide that the programme is not working for you, you can cancel with 1 month's notice.
Just click on the 'Email me' button above to get in touch and arrange your free 15min Career Breakthrough Call to learn more, ask any questions and see if coaching is a good fit for you.
Remember that coaching is an investment in yourself. The work that we do together is transformational work which creates long lasting, positive change (unlike spending money on a 'quick fix’ which may make you feel better at the time, but doesn’t get to the root of the problem).
What my clients say:
"Before working with Juliette I was feeling lost and unsure about which way to go forward, knowing that my recent jobs were not right but unable to identify what was right for me.
Working with her was specific to me and just what I needed, and now I have a clearer idea of the area I want to work in. And I'm feeling more confident that I can make the change and that I do have valuable skills to offer.
The best thing for me were the Skype sessions and being able to see and talk with her, and she will challenge what you feel and think but in a good way! She won't just take answers to questions at face value but will dig deeper which was sometimes hard but totally necessary and that was where the 'lightbulb' moments came from!"
Mags, Event Organiser
"Before we started coaching, I most wanted to have clarity about what exactly it is I wanted to do, and the confidence to leave my full time job and branch out into the world of postnatal support.
My favourite part of the programme was the weekly catch ups. I really thrived on having that point of connection every week to reiterate the learning from the workbooks and think about what's next.
Juliette was also very good at being supportive, yet challenging, and wasn't afraid to ask questions that made me really think about my response.
I am now confident that I have something valuable to offer potential clients, and clear on the steps I need to take in order to make the transition into a new career."
Grace, University Academic
"I wanted to thank you again for the life coaching sessions and can honestly say they totally turned my life around. I'm so glad to have met you at the time I did, your sessions gave me my confidence back and put me on the right path.
I was miserable and at a crossroads in a job I hated when I first sought you out. I was stuck in a rut and couldn't see a way out. Your guidance helped me to put things in perspective and gave me the much needed boost to sort myself out. I landed a new job, I started writing, and I'm doing the Great North run in 2 weeks.
I started my new job recently and I'm loving it. It's been a life changing couple of months and I feel so much happier with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm."
Silvia, Project Manager
"When I signed up, I needed some help staying on track and giving me structure as I made the leap from the corporate world in to creating my own business.
The journey I've been on has been amazing thanks to the coaching. I could have given up so many times because things got tough and hurdles had to be overcome but you kept me on track, helped me face my fears and offered guidance to help me think differently and ultimately make progress.
I enjoyed the Skype calls as they were a chance to check-in face to face, and I liked the way that you paid attention and took genuine interest in me and what I was trying to create.
I also liked the way that the work week by week evolved and the first few weeks set the foundation that could be referred back to. I think the areas covered give a great base from which to progress from."
Pauline, Marketing Manager
"Before working with Juliette, I needed help to clarify my strengths and define possible career options. She really helped me to recognise my strengths and break through some of my limiting beliefs.
My favourite part of the coaching programme was the homework. It really helped to make the link between the work we were doing and the real world rather, than just at the level of theory.
And I loved that the sessions were structured so I felt reassured there was a method/plan underlying it, but at the same time Juliette really responded to where I was and what I needed so it still felt completely personal and tailored for me."
Lorraine, HR Executive
"When I started working with Juliette, I was feeling really stuck in my current self-employment career. All the coaching modules had an impact and brought out different aspects that I hadn't thought about before, and I enjoyed the weekly catch up calls.
Juliette is friendly, understanding and cares about her client's issues, and I left feeling feeling clearer about my next steps and more motivated."
"I didn't know much about coaching before I got involved, but it has made me realise that it can be a very powerful tool to help change areas in your life you are not happy with.
I found all the exercises very helpful as it gave me time to focus on myself, something I feel I have not really done in a long time. Also the follow up emails were very useful because it was in writing so it gave me time to digest the information and really take time out to focus on how to use the exercises.
Life Coaching for me has been a very enjoyable and valuable experience, not only has it given me a clearer picture of what small steps I need to undertake to achieve my main goals, but it has also helped me enhance my confidence and self-esteem."
Anis, Charity Worker
"When we started working together, I was trying to figure out what work would be most fulfilling for me - I do a few different projects and very little of the work was enjoyable for me.
During our sessions I felt energised, supported and hopeful, and the mapping strengths to values exercise was very powerful. Working with Juliette was enlightening, reassuring and energising."
Rob, Fundraising Strategist
