What does a career coach do?
- Help you to reflect on your circumstances and situation. What is it about this situation that you want to change? Why do you want to change?
- Work with you to identify your strengths, weaknesses, values, talents, and priorities. Do these align with your intended changes? If not, why not?
- Provide unbiased discussion around what steps you should take to move forwards and holding you accountable to those steps.
- Work with you to understand the underlying reasons for your decision, offering clarity around an often quite complicated topic.

“I didn’t have a specific goal in advance of my coaching session but this became clearer due to personal situations that were arising. Lisa helped me to talk through and offload the issues that were arising for me and their impact. I enjoyed having the opportunity to talk through the issues causing me stress at home and impacting on my work at the time. Post coaching I have reflected and thought about some of our opportune conversations and how I will respond in the future. I have needs and need to state what help and support I need from others, not just soak up managing everything myself.
Thank you for giving me the time to think and process what was going on for me Lisa. The time to think about myself and put myself first rather than everyone else. “
An NHS Manager
“I love my job with a passion and care deeply about it. I say yes to everything and everyone and work very long hours and then get told off for it! I struggle to get through lists of work in my day and then work silly hours as cant leave things undone! So, what did I need? Some coaching on how to try and achieve a better balance and how to regain control of my day! I have just had my second coaching session with Lisa. What can say? Lisa is a miracle worker! I will be honest, I wasn’t really sure if a business coach was for me and if she could help, but she has been absolutely brilliant. She has just helped me to see what essentially staring me in the face and start to get a good perspective on things. Highly recommend anyone having a chat with her. I didn’t know how much I needed a business coach until I spoke to a business coach! Thank you so much Lisa. “

Career & Life coaching
“I did not have a clear goal before commencing the sessions. Lisa used a variety of tools which helped me to identify my priorities for the sessions. I was able to identify that achieving a work/life balance in this period after taking my pension was an ongoing challenge for me and was impacting on my wellbeing. Lisa listened intently, demonstrated by the quality of questioning which led me on my journey. I was never rushed, and was sensitively encouraged to articulate my thoughts. I also had the time to think clearly.
My biggest learning was identifying my key values, and how rewarded I can be if I find work projects that reflect these/ decline things that don’t. I will now understand and value my worth, values and wellbeing. Making work decisions based on this understanding, rather than because other people encourage me to do things that do not fit my ‘terms’.
Lisa’s manner is gentle and encouraging. I very quickly felt comfortable to explore some challenging areas and beliefs and I am delighted with the outcome. I am now empowered to express my terms to potential employers with very positive results. I make my own choices rather than be influenced by others. I highly recommend Lisa’s coaching services “
