Make your next career move really count

I believe we can all succeed in what we do and we can all find happiness in what we do.

A job doesn’t have to be something that just pays the bills. It can be a place where your unique mix of skills, talent and personality can shine. Where the work is challenging and engaging, where you’re motivated to do well and get rewarded for it.

Taking the time to get it right could be life changing. That’s why I’m here, to help you land the RIGHT job, not just any job.

My job is to make sure you have everything aligned so you can aim for what you really want, with accuracy, and start applying for jobs with confidence.

This involves:

  • Understanding who you are, your personality and your passions.
  • Discovering opportunities, pushing beyond assumptions.
  • Clarifying your career direction and specifying a new role to aim for.
  • Positioning and presenting your experience, achievements and expertise in a compelling and convincing way across your CV, LinkedIn and other profiles.
  • Creating a job search and application strategy.
  • Role play and practice sessions to prepare you for interviews.

Interviews can seem terrifying. We have all been in that situation, even me when I started my HR career in 2006!

Since then, I’ve learnt highly effective tools and techniques to coach people in making a career change and prepare them to face interviews with ease and confidence.

Whether you are looking for a job, a career or a calling, if you’re 100% sure you want to make a change, book a free consultation where we can discuss your requirements in detail.

My own career path and why I coach

While working as an HR Manager in London I started advising people on how to get the jobs they wanted. I discovered that helping others achieve their career goals gave me that warm, fuzzy feeling.

I got serious about doing this work when I moved to Madrid in 2015 and started coaching professionals who wanted to move abroad to start a career.

Being able to coach in English, French or Spanish has helped me work with global-minded professionals to embrace their next challenge and reach professional fulfilment.

I’ve continued with this work, applying highly effective frameworks, principles and techniques to empower clients and optimise their opportunities for success.

I am genuinely interested and driven to help people find direction, identify a rewarding career and make a career change. My philosophy is that the more I learn, the more I am able to be inspired and inspire others to reach their full potential so they recognise their worth.




What to expect from my coaching

I facilitate change by encouraging and inspiring clients to take control of their career path. My aim is to help you move out from your comfort zone, to challenge you and therefore get you think differently so you can grow personally and professionally.

With my career coaching programme, you’ll get a full assessment of your strengths, skills and values, and we’ll work together to identify career possibilities that connect with your sense of purpose.

Commitment is very important to me, so I work with clients who are 100% certain that they are ready for a change.
