Bespoke Interview/ Career Coaching
We offer a programme of three sessions to work with you to identify your career goals and develop the skills to help you to achieve them.

At Susan Chan New Horizons we come across people who have lost the key element of themselves, who they are and who they want to be. This work requires a coaching relationship, that allows time for you to explore areas of your life that you wish to change and to take you back to the core aspects and values of your life that have been missing. This would include 'future self-work' and some 'life purpose work'.

Group Supervision for coaches and other professionals; allowing for deeper exploration and the sharing of perspectives, we can support professional growth and self-directed learning drawing on the power of the group

Coaching for Rehabilitation: From a background in conflict, dependency and mediation, we can work with individuals in active recovery
