How…. does Career Coaching work?

Get it all off your chest!

Speak freely and in confidence about the work and life issues you are facing and how they are affecting you – with someone who understands what being a parent, carer or simply needing flexibility for a multitude of other reasons – means to your working life. I am a Masters Qualified Career Development Practitioner, registered with the Career Development Institute, able to provide you with professional and effective career guidance and counselling. Sometimes talking about the frustrations you are experiencing out loud, to someone who understands, can begin to unlock the ideas and motivation you are looking for to move on. 

Be informed

I hear you say, “but there are no decent flexible job advertised, they are all full-time”

Develop powerful new approaches to discover flexible work opportunities in a ‘hidden’ jobs market. Boost your know how on how to negotiate for flexible working with ANY employer. Know your flexible working rights. Breakthrough the barriers to move on, up or out of your job AND hold tight to your important flexible working arrangement or part-time hours.

Be yourself

Discover or switch to new career better suited to your skills, interests and values. You CAN change what you do for work without losing work time flexibility. Achieve the job satisfaction you are looking for and you deserve. It doesn’t matter if you have had career breaks or want to switch careers – make your CV great and working hard to do the job it should be doing – getting you an interview! How’s your digital personality?  Employers WILL Google you.. what do they find? Get your social media singing for you to enhance your job search success. Boost your job application and interview techniques to secure a new part-time or flexible working arrangement, even when the job is advertised as full-time. Discover how you can make the best career decisions for you and keep your flexi or part-time career on track.

OK, so how does it work?

Over a series of one hour personal career coaching sessions tailored entirely to your individual needs. I recommended between 3 to 6 sessions to get you off to a flying start, but you are free to choose how may sessions you feel you need, as you progress towards where want you want to be. Take your sessions close together or further apart so you can manage your time and start putting plans into action. There’s no pressure here – as a Mum I understand how you can be needed elsewhere at the drop of a hat. Rearrangements are par for the course!

Great… where does this take place?

I work with women right across the UK and offer face-to-face sessions at my base in Derby for those living closer, or online for those further afield where we meet for our sessions in the virtual world through Skype or Zoom. The aim is to meet you in a time and place that fits with your life.

I like it… so what’s it going to cost me?

1 x hour coaching session £45 (no hidden costs, no contract commitment, you simply pay by the hour)

Eeek.. I’m not sure…?

I know it can feel like a big step reaching out to someone you don’t know for help and advice, but I would be very happy to hear from you. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, over the phone or face to face from my base in Derby, where you can use the time to talk about what you want, get a bit of advice and to find out more about how I can help you. You then decide if this is for you or not, there is absolutely no obligation. I am on a mission to help people like you – I set up this service because I have encountered many frustrations with the recruiting systems in our labour market, that so often do not support women who need some flex in their working life, but still want and deserve decent jobs and careers. Let’s have a conversation, click on the link below to book your free consultation. Go for it.. I’d love to hear from you.

Flexible and part-time work does not mean the end of your career – get in touch, get on track and feel great about work
