Coaching Services


In today’s ultra competitive job market there are few strategies that can make your career transition more effective. With my expertise in Recruitment and Career Coaching, I can help you find a new career path, develop a career progression strategy, clarify your career goals and aspirations and help you shed light on your key skills and areas of improvement.


Executive Coaching will enhance your leadership skills, self-awareness, team management skills, and communication style. The process usually consists of a programme of 6-8 personalised sessions of approximately 1h30. The process will invariably expand and extend your thinking, with continuous challenge, clear goals and objectives where you become accountable  for your own development and improvement. It is not only a journey to self-development, but also a definite tool to increasing performance, and ultimately a feeling of fulfilment.

Career Guidance Sessions focus on giving you the best possible strategy when going on a job hunt.  The sessions will help ease the process and get you where you want to be, faster and with less stress.  The guidance will help you plan adequately and efficiently your job search. This usually takes 2-3 sessions where we agree on the level of support your need.

Returning to work after a break can be challenging. Following a career break, we often start with a negative mind-set. After, 4 or 5 sessions, you will a have a strategy of how to successfully return to work. For some individuals, looking to re-enter the workforce, a full-time, stable job with benefits is the only path back. For others, re-entry needs to involve part-time, home- or project-based work.


Graduate coaching is the best way to ensure that graduates reach their true potential. I ensure that they get the right job, not just any job. The sessions will help them clarify the career they want and the steps needed to take to get there. This usually involves a combination of one-to-one coaching sessions, career guidance, and mentoring to start a successful professional life.
