Thinking about changing your career?   Or perhaps you've been made redundant and want to use this opportunity to review your options?

Modern business and life is a far CRY FROM THE JOB FOR LIFE MODEL THAT USED TO EXIST, ANd THESE DAYS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT CHANGING CAREERS AND ROLES IN THEIR WORKING LIVES at least once..

I've CHANGED CARERS AND ROLES NUMEROUS TIMES, including starting a business at 40 and changing career completely at 47, and know that is not a decision or plan to take lightly but one that can ultimately be very rewarding.

My role as your coach is to help you make these decisions and implement your plan in the best way that suits you now and in your future.


  • Understanding your Purpose in your career so you know what needs your role has to fulfil 

  • Where best to apply your passions and skills

  • Discovering the motivation and why that really sets you alight to get it done

  • Career Change Planning - how to make it happen

  • Overcoming limiting beliefs & other blockers that stop you from going for it 

  • Action planning and accountability to get it done


Who's it For?

Anyone considering a career change or perhaps thinking of starting a business.

How Does it Work? 

We have an initial session via your FREE Breakthrough Clarity Call to discuss your needs and for you to experience coaching from me.

Once you decide to work with me you invest in a number of sessions to help you move forward at a pace you are comfortable with.

You may never get another obvious chance once you are in employment again and back on the treadmill. It's amazing how many people have benefited from this one simple exercise to open up the possibilities fr their future.

Know what’s important to you

Learning about my personal values and what was important to me at different stages of my life made choosing options that suited me, and stressed out less, so much easier.

They are your guides when making big decisions and you'll soon see that living in alignment with them makes life much more enjoyable and a helluva lot less stressful.

You can use the Personal Values worksheet in your free pack to do this.

Look for transferable skills you can use elsewhere

Once you decide what you want to do with your life from this point on you can look at what you already know from your experience to use moving forward in whatever you do. You don’t have to throw all of the bathwater out with the baby.

Take a look at the results from your Personal Fabness Audit and My Dream Life exercise to see where there are cross-overs and also where you may need to upskill or re-train.

Talk to other people who have changed careers or made similar leaps and it won't seem so scary.

Get help to make those big decisions

Without the help of the coaches, I've worked with, and continue to use I may never have even considered the possibilities and opportunities that have come my way.

Invest in yourself and use the time off work wisely to make the right decisions.

Try a few coaches to ensure you get the right one for you. Most coaches, myself included, offer a free session to help you make this decision.

HiWe had a wee blip over the weekend when our central heating and hot water boiler decided to stop working on us. At times like this, it would be easy to lament one's lot and ask why me, right?But if you've been following me for a while you'll know I'm going to point out that it's purely a short-term inconvenience.Cozy blankets and hot chocolate kept us going no problem and it will be fixed in the next day or so once the right part shows up.In fact, it's a great reminder to stop taking for granted all the fabulous things I have access to; good food, running water, entertainment galore, warm clothing, a nice house, and happy home life etc.So, let's start the week counting our blessings and realizing just how lucky we already are - even if we do have a few goals to aim for still.It's a great way to get positive and give ourselves a wee boost as we start out on the week :)What are you most grateful for today? :) ...
