Career Coaching


Helping you find work that makes your soul sing

Whether you’re looking to develop your career, transition to a new role or re-invent your career completely, I will help you to clarify your career aspirations, give you confidence in all you have to offer the world, and support you to find work that makes your soul sing!

Career coaching is for you if…
  • You’re ambitious: keen to grow and develop your career but not sure where to start. You’d like the support of someone not connected with your company to help you lay the foundations for a successful and fulfilling career.
  • You’re returning from parental leave and would like to ease the transition, balance the priorities of your work and home life, re-engage with your role and re-build professional relationships.
  • You’re feeling stuck or under-valued in your current role and you’re looking to transition to a new role and company that excites and energises you.
  • Your role has been made redundant and you’d like support to navigate the practical and emotional challenges, rebuild your self-confidence and define the next chapter of your career.
  • You’re overwhelmed and exhausted by the demands of your current role and it’s time for a change. You feel called to do work that is more meaningful and aligned with your values – but have no idea what that could be – or you have so many ideas and don’t know how to choose.

“The time I have spent with Emma has been incredibly valuable as I ready myself ahead of the most significant career change for me in the last 25 years. Emma is incredibly personable, she quickly put me at ease. Her flexibility was fantastic and quickly adapted sessions to suit my needs at that time. She certainly knows her stuff and I now feel fully equipped both practically (I have a CV and a documented plan!) and, most importantly, have the confidence to take this leap of faith and step out into the big wide world! Thank you Emma for your guidance, insight and patience.”

How it works
  • A one-hour Discovery session which forms the foundation of our coaching relationship.
  • Followed by one-hour coaching sessions, usually two sessions per month, which enable you to work towards your goals with my ongoing support.
  • After each session, you will have homework which is designed to help you deepen your learning. This may be a question for you to ponder over the coming weeks, or a written exercise to further explore the topic of our coaching session.
  • Email or WhatsApp support in between coaching sessions as needed.
  • A warm and positive partnership to support you with every step of your career coaching journey.
  • You are very welcome to work with me for longer than the number of sessions in your package if you wish. When our coaching relationship does come to an end, we celebrate how far you have come with a one-hour completion session.
  • I coach via Zoom or over the phone between 9.30am and 3pm, Monday to Friday.

“I wholeheartedly recommend Emma as a career coach if you are navigating a career change, redundancy or any interview processes. Emma has been an invaluable support to me, helping me navigate from my previous employer where I had been for 18 years to securing my new dream role. Emma has such positive energy and offers endless support in navigating the multitude of emotions and challenges that face career decisions and job hunting. Emma is able to flex her style quickly from the big career planning questions to coaching on interview techniques. I found my sessions with Emma hugely beneficial, and would not hesitate to recommend her to others.”
