There are times in life when we need to take stock of where we are, where we would like to be, and how we can get there. Understanding your career purpose and what has meaning for you at work allows you to recognise the kind of work which will fulfil you, gives you confidence in your career decisions and allows you to plot a course to a job you love.
Career coaching provides the time and the space for you to do just that.
As your coach, I act as an impartial guide to help you to figure out what your true values are, what really motivates you, and to identify your key skills. Finding your value-led motivators at work will allow you to make confident career decisions, and plot a course to a job you love.
How does it work?
We use discussion and written exercises to help you figure out what your true values are, what really motivates you, and to identify your key skills.
The way we work together is as individual as you are; you will have the time to talk about your career to date, your career influences and your plans for the future. Once you feel clear on what you want we discuss your career options - and how to achieve them - in detail, ensuring you have clarity about the next steps.
Throughout the process you will be asked the right questions to help you find your own answers and way forward.
Career coaching sessions are charged at £150 and are 60 to 90 minutes in length. We will usually work together for between four to six sessions and you are able to purchase a block of 4 sessions for £550 or 6 sessions for £750.
What clients say
"Asked the right questions, clarified my sense of purpose and was lovely to work with"
"Catherine was instrumental in helping me secure the right job. After a very stressful period of time wandering aimlessly in my career, she helped me change perspective by taking an in depth and full spectrum approach to my job search. As well as helping me improve my CV and giving me interview training, Catherine asked the right questions, clarified my sense of purpose and was lovely to work with. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
"Catherine is wonderful at balancing structure and efficiency with creativity and exploration"
"Through working with Career Potential I experienced the massive confidence boost I needed to put myself out there and proactively return to my desired career path. Catherine is wonderful at balancing structure and efficiency with creativity and exploration. The satisfaction of seeing real progress week on week in my arsenal of job application assets actually made me look forward to applying for roles. Working with Career Potential has been such a useful exercise that I think could benefit anyone at any stage of their career."
"You gave me so many suggestions that I would never have considered alone"
"Catherine worked with me on improving my CV and immediately it attracted a lot more interest from recruitment agents. I liked her gentle approach when we worked together, I have very strong sense that the new CV is "mine" but at the same time she gave me so many suggestions that I would never have considered alone."
"Working with you was the one bright spot in an otherwise very stressful redundancy process"
"Working with you was the one bright spot in an otherwise very stressful redundancy process, you were always very supportive and understanding. We worked together on my CV, I found your input very helpful and constructive and I have had good feedback on the final document."
"It’s a real delight working with you"
"It’s a real delight working with you, you are able to see things from a variety of perspectives and respond appropriately whilst being friendly and fun to work with too."
"Extremely skilled at asking the right questions"
"I can't praise highly enough the service I received from Catherine. She was extremely skilled at asking the right questions to help me work out my own career path, leaving me in control of my decisions and the outcome of the process. I had been following a career path I fell into seven years ago, with no real clue of the direction to take in the future. The sessions helped me to clarify my skills and priorities, giving me the space, and tools, to work out a solid career plan for the next five years and more."
