Coaching For Careers

Why should anyone consider coaching for careers? I have a firm belief that once you know where you want to go, you will get there. The problem is that, sometimes, we just don’t know what we want.

Or maybe is this a passing phase and you’ll “settle down” and be content with what you have?


I’m not here to answer these questions for you. However, I can guide you through a process that will help determine what it is you really want to do, and then create a strategy that will make it happen.


My USP is my previous background in PR and marketing. This means that I can help you position yourself, raise your profile and put yourself in the absolute best position to get the job you want, or move into a more satisfying career that lines up with who you truly are.
