Strengths and Mindset Based Career Coaching and Mentoring





 coaching is opening the doorCoaching helps you open the door…


Why choose coaching? You may be at the doorway of a new job, new career or business. Or it could just be a time where you want to take stock of your current path because something is telling you that it’s not quite right.


Wherever you are at, you have an innate understanding perhaps that the mindset and behaviours that got you here aren’t going to be enough to move forward. Or maybe, you just need help thinking things through and making the plan.

That’s where I come in.


I work with people who are:


  • Stuck
  • Wanting to change career but need help breaking this down into steps
  • Want to seriously up their game
  • Are just setting out on a new path and want some support
  • Facing a life changing decision


Throwing off the Shackles


Together we will co-create your best way forward, using you strengths, skills, and the gem that is the authentic you.  We will also look at the roles that are going to best suited for these, and help you feel the most happy and fulfilled you can be. At times it may be fast, furious and challenging. At others we will linger, working through knotty issues and collaborating on a way forward.


The Confidence to Change


But it’s not enough to know what changes you want to make. Much of my career has been working with people who have a strong vision but something holds them back – confidence, Imposter Syndrome, bad organisation or time management for instance. We’ll address anything that may be holding you back, including your strengths, as overusing your strengths is often a way to get stuck.  I promise you that our work together will build your  confidence and empower you to make the changes you desire.


Coaching For PR, marketing and media industries


My PR agency background makes me a great fit for coaching within these industries. I understand the issues that crop up again and again: acting as middle man between media and client, dealing with client expectations, mental health within the industry and keeping on top of all the latest technological developments to name but a few.


About Coach Paula Gardner


I am a career coach based in London. I have studied coaching to Masters’ level and qualified with the ICF accredited Animas School of coaching. I have been coaching and mentoring people from a huge array of industries and sectors for over ten years.


Additionally, I am a Business Psychologist. This means that I bring to the table practical models, tools and exercises that can add clarity, focus and direction.


As a past owner of my own PR company, I have also personally experienced many issues pertinent to leadership and running a business. A a mentor, I can sometimes offer practical advice, contacts and suggestions that you may not have thought of. I find mentoring combines well with coaching. Sometimes you just want someone to hand you a shortcut, rather than have to figure it all out on your own!



“You are honest, open and sincere, and you always support me but also challenge what I have to say so I don’t make any stupid decisions! You are always a great listener and never judge me and always encourage and never patronise.” A client
