You’re wondering if you’re in the right place in your life or at work but don’t know how you’d make a change. It feels scary. You’ve got a lot to lose.
You’ve never really had a plan, you’d like to have a bit of an idea where you go from here but you don’t know where to start.
To the outside world everything looks just fine. No one has a clue how you really feel. You wouldn’t know how to start that conversation.
After a career in the NHS and Charity Sector managing people and teams I trained as a Coach. I’ve always enjoyed helping people to develop and grow in knowledge, skills and confidence.
My story probably isn’t too different from yours. I know what its like to feel lost, exhausted, trapped, with no energy to think about doing things differently. Working with a coach changed my life.
Having seen the benefits of coaching in my own life I work with clients to help them make changes and get up every morning with a spring in their step.
Coaching is a conversation between two people. The coach and the client.
A coach uses models and techniques to unlock your thoughts and potential. But most of all the Coach listens and asks questions. You have the answers. You really do!
Coaching lets you get to know yourself better, or find yourself again if you feel you’ve lost your way. It helps you find your purpose, set your goals and learn how to make things happen.
I started coaching with Karen after being made redundant from a job I thought I loved. Karen helped me recognise what great experience I have, my strengths and values, and my priorities for moving forward. I am now working for an employer whose values align more closely with mine. Coaching helped me to realise that I wanted to take a step back and I’m now enjoying life outside of work. Coaching wasn’t always easy but I learned a lot about myself and it was certainly worthwhile.
I have been working with Karen over the past year and find her calm, thoughtful approach of great value. She is a good listener and asks incisive questions which have really helped me get clarity in my thinking on a number of business issues. I would highly recommend working with her.
Working with Karen feels like having a fairy godmother! She is patient, supportive, encouraging and funny. Since working with Karen I’ve found a new job, improved my relationship with myself and family and friends and am making progress towards the future I want.
I would definitely recommend Karen as a coach. She is very understanding and makes you feel really at ease. She is great at drawing information out of you and allowing you to see the answers for yourself. I feel so much better now about myself and what I can do.
I would recommend Karen to anyone seeking a true professional that will help, challenge and support you in achieving your goals. Her manner makes it easy to feel relaxed, but she will also hold you accountable along the way!
I would highly recommend Karen as the conversations we had were not only highly enjoyable but she asked the right questions that made me change my perspective on multiple challenges I had. By talking together, I managed to overcome quite a few mental blocks and felt invigorated after each call.
Karen really made me think, she has a great skill of asking very little, but making you open your own mind.
Working with Karen made a huge difference to my life. She gave me the confidence to really push forward with my business and give up a job that was not fulfilling me. She also helped me to work out practical steps I can take to move towards the life I want.
