What is a HOLISTIC CAREER? Let's make sure we are talking about the same thing.
How we define the word career makes all the difference. I believe a career is holistic and encompasses all our life roles (e.g. including that of parent, employee/entrepreneur, sibling, friend, child), our learning, leisure, and work roles (paid and unpaid). How we choose to put all those together and balance them is our career. When you look at career from this perspective I believe a world of possibilities opens up; it’s thinking from a ‘both-and’ perspective instead of an ‘either-or’ perspective.
I believe in empowering people to find the right mix of all these elements for themselves at this place and phase of their lives and equipping them to adjust it as they continue to grow and develop over the course of their lives.
I am happy to tailor my coaching to meet your situation.
Powerful Authentic CV Coaching
Using a process to put more than just your skills and experience on paper, the red thread that guides your career choices is clearly profiled and those elements that allow you to shine in your work are emphasised, creating a CV that supports you to move in your desired career direction.
Following completion of a pre-session assignment, we meet for a 3-hour intensive CV writing session. The CV continues to be tweaked and adapted until it gets you invited to an interview.
In addition to tailoring your CV, in this program you are also supported to create your strategy, gain confidence with the most effective approaches to find or create the opportunity you want, and identify and take the actions that will open doors to the opportunity you are looking for.
Sessions are held following completion of related assignments, includes the 3-hour intensive CV writing session, interview support.

How do I coach?
Whether it is getting a career unstuck, navigating change, transitioning in a career or from school to work, networking toward opportunity or active work search, I support my clients to move towards their personally meaningful career goals.
I use a holistic, narrative, strengths-based and forward-looking approach to career coaching. Clients complete tailored coaching assignments which are discussed and explored during the session following and support the next steps in the process. I support clients to re-member their story, to find their resonant voice and clarify their direction. I teach clients to navigate their way across occupational boundaries, international borders and economic shifts, creating their unique, personally meaningful path.
To get started, clients contact me for a complimentary 30 minute exploratory session. If the client then wants to take the next step I develop and send them a proposal indicating the number of sessions and what the focus of each session will be. When we reach agreement on this, the coaching begins.
