I am a licensed career coach working with career changers and career starters. I am a member of the Association For Coaching.
I started my coaching journey over 8 years ago coaching my team to progress and develop in their career, when I worked as a merchandiser in head office retail industry. It was always the part of the job I loved the most and as I developed my coaching skills further I knew I wanted a role where I could support more. I worked in the retail industry for almost 15 years before embarking on my own career change.
At the end of 2020 I took the leap after being made redundant and retrained as a career coach and set up my business, In A Pickle Careers. It was my career change that got me so interested in coaching others to successful career pivots. I had been stuck and had needed guidance to get unstuck (I used a career coach and it had been life changing for me). I wanted to give that support to others.
I am also a career coach at FourthRev, working with London School of Economics and Kings College London on their tech career accelerator programmes, helping mainly career changers move into the tech industry.
On top of that I am an associate maternity coach at The Maternity Coach helping mums come back from maternity leave confidently working with many leading organisations including the NHS.
It's vital to feel like we have a good rapport in order that you feel comfortable which is why I offer a free 30 minute consultation. We can get to know each other and you can have a little taster of what to expect.
When we agree your programme, it's important for you to commit fully to the process in order to get the best results.
I follow a structured framework using different coaching techniques. I am licensed to use a number of different exercises to support our conversations. I often set homework prior to a coaching session and bringing completed exercises to the session will mean you get the best out of them.
My aim is to inspire, empower and challenge you in order for you to have a career you love.
