About Paula Gardner


I have worked with individuals, business owners, CEOs and executives for over 15 years. I am the author of three books, including The Career Pause and Pivot, and was named in a list of 100 inspiring women by F-entrepreneur.com. I’m a member of The Association of Business Psychologists (ABP) and did my Transformational Coaching training with the ICF acredited Animas Coaching School. I also mentor PR apprentices for the PRCA, and have appeared in Marie Claire, The Guardian, The Daily Mail, and Psychologies, and on The Times Radio.


I’m also the founder of The Redundancy Recovery Hub, an outplacement resource for employers. The hub is a collection of articles, expert interviews, first-person stories, tutorials and online coaching. It helps anyone who’s been made redundant get back into work, change career or start a business.


Recently, I started my training as a psychotherapist, in order to also offer counselling and therapy based help to my clients. This is keeping me on top of the latest therapeutic developments, as well as keeping me busy during lockdown!
