Wendy Smith - Career Coach with Life Coaching Skills
0208 1239146 / 07867 681439
Thank you for visiting my profile. If you are looking to develop your career, move up from middle or senior management, seek a new job or a new direction, I can help. I can help as well if you are having problems at work in your present job or just feeling stuck. I am a qualified and experienced (several thousand hours) coach offering a well recommended career, life and business coaching service. As well as expertise and professionalism, my values are empathy, authenticity and a commitment to achieving goals.
I've coached, mentored and supported people through all kinds of challenges and problems at work, at home and in their businesses. As a manager, I've worked in both the public and private sectors. My experience as a project manager means I know how to help you set and achieve you personal or work-related goals. As an experienced H.R. manager, I'm well placed to advise on job search and career development. I have also started and managed three small businesses. My life coach training means I can work with you through more personal issues and relationship problems.
Coaching sessions usually last an hour by phone or Skype and are held fortnightly or sometimes weekly. I work with clients to get the issues clear, then to decide and implement the solution. If you are job seeking, I will review your CV and application letters and prepare you for interviews or assessment centres. As a business coach, I am used to working with new start-ups. The frist taster session is free.
I chose to become a life coach, as well as a career and business coach, because I wanted to work with people in all parts of their lives. Feeling whole means having a good life at home as well as succeeding at work. In my spare time I am a creative writer and poet.
