Victoria Walsh - Mid Life Career Transformation Coach
020 9943 4297 / 07538 435878
Hi I’m Victoria Walsh, career transformation expert coaching mid life professionals in their 40s and 50s to courageously create the changes they seek in order to stop feeling dissatisfied, restless and under performing in their careers. To beat self-doubt and compromise which holds them back from enjoying and achieving the life aspirations they truly want and deserve. To revitalise themselves and their careers with purpose, fulfilment and potential to max out every day
Mid life is a time for freedom, liberation and redefined purpose. It’s where competency, a new perspective and confidence can help you live life to the fullest.
It’s my mission as a coach to help mid-lifers maximise every opportunity they have to make every day their best day. Satisfied, fulfilled, energised and doing the work they really want to do to their best ability. To turn any yearning and internal self questioning into clear confident action. To not get sidelined by age, their own limiting beliefs and society. To say to hell with being stuck in jobs which no longer fulfil or energise them. To never accept missing out on a promotion, hitting a ceiling or plateauing, and to always be being able to muster up a performance to be proud of.
Clarity + Confidence + Action = transformation

For most of my life my mother has been going on at me about procrastinating and now even in mid-life, it has continued to plague me and negatively influence my performance, particularly my work. Well, that was until I decided to address it with Victoria’s help. Victoria has given me fantastic tools and support to deal with this deeply frustrating attribute. The result has been a very significant change in my performance and efficiency, both at work and home. I would therefore highly recommend Victoria for this and other help with performance and focus related issues. I am delighted, as is my mother! MARK JONES
Through my coaching with Victoria, I’ve acquired a better understanding of my core values, what motivates me and how this drives my interaction with others. The information has helped me improve relationships that were in danger of breaking down, secured me a promotion at work and has left me feeling more confident than ever before. Victoria’s helped me pull myself out of a rut and I’m now pushing ahead with more energy and focus than ever before – strangely on a path I wasn’t expecting. JON LEIGH, IT LEAD
I believe that everyone should have a coach like Victoria. Through working together, I have found more confidence, effective working strategies and focused performance at a time when I am setting the direction for my career and entire life. The coaching experience has been an invaluable investment which has allowed me to overcome challenges such as overwhelm, self-doubt and productivity that without Victoria’s support I would have continued to stumble and fallen at. NICK SIBLEY, MARKETING EXECUTIVE
Victoria is a professional, authentic and an incredibly insightful coach. After just one coaching session together she managed to unpick what was holding me back on my job search and also to face the fears that I had created along the way. She also brought empathy to the session and a wealth of experience of the corporate world which she has spent a long time working in. I would thoroughly recommend a coaching programme with Victoria especially if you are going through a transitional period and need someone to help navigate next steps. I love her honesty and pragmatic approach. She has a great passion for wanting to help people and make a difference and I know as a result I now have clarity on what I need to do next. REBECCA DELLER
When I started working with Vicki, I felt I was lost and unsure if I wanted to remain with the company I had helped build, or look to do something completely different. Through focused sessions, Vicki challenged me to think about who I am and what I truly valued, allowing me to define what I want to achieve from my career going forwards. I’m now clear, positive, focused and more confident in my path ahead. Making changes to the way I am thinking and behaving is going to have strong impact on my future success. PHILIP CHURCHMAN, Account Director
If you’re looking for an experienced, professional coach who is committed to making you the success that you always wanted to be, then I would strongly recommend Victoria Walsh.
There are a number of areas which have been focused on in the last 6 months. It’s very difficult to put into words the incredible journey I’ve been on with Vicki, but what I do know is that 6 months ago I was fed up with treading water with a start up I’d created and my health was stood still. I was frustrated with my constant procrastinations and unable to give myself the necessary kick up the arse to get things moving. With the insightful and focused coaching from Victoria I suddenly found - What makes me tick and what I love as an individual (I’d forgotten the things that put a smile on myself and get me up in the morning).
Realisation that if I spent a bit more time on me, then the rest of the world is a good place and less challenging. I recognised my procrastination behaviours and how it was stopping me from moving forward. Victoria gave me the insight and skills in managing procrastination. Suddenly I found actions started and my career started moving forward again. J MAYNE, Program Director
I was at a turning point with my business, wanting to move it forward and brimming with ideas, yet stuck in the busy-ness of the ‘day to day’; a classic case of not being able to see the wood for the trees. Victoria has helped me on so many levels; visualising where I want to be, allowing me the space to set myself tangible tasks and ensuring accountability to get the work done. Using creative and diverse techniques, Victoria has enabled me to really explore not just my work, but how it fits in with my personal and family life. We’ve explored my own personality traits and how they enhance my business (as well as realising what I need to develop to move it forwards).I look forward to our regular sessions as I always come away with clarity and confidence, and a plan of action. K CURTIS
If you’re running your own business big or small, I highly recommend working with Victoria’s sessions to elevate yourself and see the big picture of what you are creating. It’s an investment that is so worthwhile and Vicki is wonderful at what she does! K SMART, SMALL BUSINESS OWNER
Victoria has really helped me to understand what is important to me and the balance I need in my life. She has encouraged me to explore different opportunities for a career change with clarity and vision post a redundancy and as my priorities changed with motherhood. LUCY B, ACCOUNT DIRECTOR
I met Victoria at networking event and always wanted to be coached. I have my own business and felt I always hit a barrier to achieve the success I desire. I am driven to succeed and love what I do, but sometimes I get stuck on looking at why others seem to be achieving more rather looking at my own success and achievements. My head was full of thoughts such as why not me? What is stopping me?
After meeting with Victoria, from that very first session, I knew coaching was the right decision. Having worked with Victoria for a few months now I have seen positive changes in my business and me as a person. These changes are driving me forward and taking me closer to the success I desire.
