If you’re feeling stuck and frustrated about your career or another part of your life, I can help you to get clear about what you want and to make change happen.
Down to earth and approachable, I've been coaching for fourteen years and am certified as a professional life coach and career coach by the respected Coaches Training Institute and coaching's professional body, the International Coach Federation (ICF).
I work with people who want to change their career or any other aspect of their life for the better. Here's some examples of what people have got from their coaching with me:
- Getting clear about career direction
- Improved relationships with partners, family, friends and work colleagues
- Understanding their worth at work and securing a pay rise to reflect it
- Re-gaining confidence after a relationship break up
- Gaining a promotion and making their mark quickly in their new role
- Increased confidence and the ability to deal with their nagging “inner critic”
- Enjoying leisure time doing activities they love, without feeling guilty
I specialise in career coaching - helping people find fulfilling work that's the best match for them, taking them from confusion to clarity. And I train other coaches to do this too. Because I spent a long time feeling that my own career wasn't the right match for me, I know what it's like to feel frustrated about career direction and I enjoy helping others to find the work that's the best match for them.
About me and what clients say
I’ve worked in communications for 25 years and I combine running my coaching practice with being Head of communications for a Government agency. So I also understand the challenges of leading teams and delivering more for less. And as well as working with private individuals I also work with women leaders to help them be as effective as possible in their work and to prepare them for promotion.
Here’s what one client has had to say about career coaching with me:
“I was unhappy in my work and desperate for a change but had no idea where to turn. Career coaching with Michelle helped me re-focus on what I really wanted from work and how to get it. I’ve now found a great new position that chimes with my values and that is much more than a 'just another job' for me.”
And here's what another client has said about life coaching with me:
"Michelle has been a Godsend. She has helped me realise that I was extremely stressed, bordering on manic and unhappy in my current role. She instilled in me the confidence to look after myself and to stop the people pleasing. She probably saved my life in all honesty, as I managed to slow down and evaluate what was important to me before I got seriously ill. Michelle’s manner is warm, approachable yet action based. Everybody needs a Michelle in their life – money well invested!"
The practical stuff
I work with people over the phone and face to face in Twickenham. The number of sessions per month depends on what fits best for you, but it should be a minimum of two per month in the early stages so you can get some momentum behind your coaching.
The overall number of sessions depends on what you want to get from your coaching. Based on experience, to create real, lasting change, I recommend a minimum of six life coaching sessions over two to three months. For career coaching, again, depending on what you want to achieve and your specific circumstances, the minimum number of sessions varies from six to twelve.
