Why do you put up with work that's less than you deserve?
Through coaching I can help you get the satisfaction you want in your work.
Together we'll turn uncertainty into confidence; chaos into balance; and unease into contentment.
(While we are at it, women, let's kick the gender pay gap into touch).
Because why shouldn't you have all that?
"I wish I had received coaching from Jodie earlier in my life, to have someone in your corner, with all the experience, support , skill, compassion, humour and motivation needed, whose sole purpose is to bring the best out in you and enable you to live your happiest life, is the most enriching and best investment I have ever made for myself". Caroline, Cornwall

I am an experienced coach. I did my training in 2008 through RD1st accredited to the equivalent of ILM Level 7 via Coaching Culture at Work (formerly Performance Coach Training).
I am committed to practicing ethically, and using evidence-based coaching tools and techniques.
"Life Coaching is an invaluable tool to use when making decisions about the future. The sessions are not a cosy chat about who you are, but deep explorations of what you want. They can be exhausting, but transformative. Jodie is very patient and insightful." Hari, Sheffield
Are you feeling burned-out, fed up, frustrated, bored? You want to make a changes but you you find yourself belittling your own feelings, giving up, settling, criticising, and finding reasons to stay put?
You don't want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire.
Or do you forge ahead in a hurry, but find yourself stressed, anxious, and in need of support?
If either sounds like you I will support you to make accelerated and lasting change to get more of what you love in your life and work.
It's not just you. Even positive change can require major adjustments.
It can be hard.
It can be overwhelming.
Talking through your options and setting realistic goals bring about positive change.
Coaching will help you to take action and plan so that you can face life changes with confidence.
Career/ Life Change Coaching
Sometimes change happens when you are least expecting it.
Redundancies, restructuring, promotions, new team members at work.
Break ups, starting a family, illness, bereavements.
Unelected changes can be particularly challenging.
When change is unexpected it can be very destabilising. Change coaching can help you to assess your resources, develop resilience, take charge of the situation where you can, and get as many positives out of a transition as possible.
When Things Don't go to Plan
Failed a crucial exam?
Didn't get a place on a course you wanted to do?
Passed over for the promotion you were expecting?
A close family member became ill and you had to change focus?
Failed to secure a job you wanted?
Hated the change you thought you'd love?
Change can happen by omission as well as by action.
These kinds of changes are just as important and impactful as the changes that you have meticulously planned and put in place.
In this situation the professional support of a coach can help you to gain perspective and to recalibrate, so that the ommission doesn't become a negative defining moment, but a catalyst for positive (if different) change.
The human cost of change can be significant.
When employees feel like workplace changes are out of their control, their communication and wellbeing are affected.
Businesses can take a responsible approach to change by enabling their staff to properly prepare for and rehearse change, making eventual transitions smoother and more successful for both employer and employee.
Resenting every billable breath?
Feel like a square peg in a round hole?
Not sure if you are in the wrong job or the wrong career?
Want a better work/life balance?
Want to understand more about who you are and how to find work that suits your specific wants?
Need support in your small biz/ freelancing life?
You CAN have a job that is satisfying and that works for you. You'll be able to imagine, explore options, plan, take decisive action, and ultimately get a career you want and love.
