Reach your full potential in your current role or prepare for a career change


Our world today celebrates being busy. It’s something we strive for, despite the fact that it can leave us feeling overwhelmed, as if we have no time and are drowning in our work. Surely, being busy is a sign of success?

Not necessarily. You can be busy, but in a job you hate, where you dread each morning or sit at your desk each day, bored and unfulfilled. You might be busy, but that doesn’t mean you’re happy. And recognising this isn’t easy. With so many responsibilities, it can feel as if you can’t afford to consider a career change. There are bills to pay, a family to support and a home to maintain – so shouldn’t you be thankful that you have a job at all, regardless of whether it makes you happy? Yes and no. You spend most of your life at work, so you deserve to be in a job that you enjoy. If you’re unhappy, this can gradually start to affect other aspects of your life: your relationships, your social life, and your mental and physical health.

Friends and family are great advisors but sometimes you need something more. If you feel that something’s missing, you’re unsatisfied with your career or you simply want some guidance on where to go next, career coaching could help you.

“It’s not what you achieve, it’s what you overcome. That’s what defines your career.” Carlton Fisk

Transforming Your Career

I can help you with your current job, or with establishing your professional goals or by supporting you in a change of career. I won’t tell you what to do, but I can guide you through decision making; give you the time and space to talk about how you’re feeling; and help you with your goals. The aim of this programme is to enable you to understand what you want, the skills you need, and how to develop them. I will support you in making these initial steps towards a more fulfilling working life.

There are many benefits to the programme: what you gain from depends upon you and the reasons why you’re seeking help. You and I can decide the precise issues covered during the sessions, although common topics include:

  • improving your career progression within your current organisation

  • identifying and overcoming potential obstacles
  • learning how to use your skills and experiences, and how to improve
  • using interview coaching to help you to stand out from the crowd

TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF MY MOST RECENT CLIENTS

The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kevin’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kevin’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kevin’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go.

I began my sessions with Kevin to address issues I knew I had around anxiety in my professional and personal life. I could see how the anxiety was limiting me and wanted to change, to not be restricted by my emotions. My self-esteem was very low so I was finding it difficult to talk publicly, to be confident in my work and to have the drive to take action in my life. In our sessions we’ve worked a lot on my anxiety. He’s helped me break things down and has given me the tools I needed to help me manage my own mind and overcome the obstacles that I faced. The difference I’ve noticed in myself since starting with Kevin has been immeasurable. I’ve grown in confidence and I’ve noticed my anxiety is not restricting me as much in my daily life, I’m a much happier person. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who’s feeling stuck in their life, who want to understand their own minds better and overcome emotional barriers. His approach allows you to find your own solutions by giving you the tools you need, this method has meant that I’ve been able to go away form our sessions and work on other problems in my own time, such a valuable skill.

I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.

I was a bit sceptical when I started out on this experience with Kev but now I am so pleased I did. He managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.

I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together.

Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!

During my sessions with Kevin, he was able to coach me to a much sharper focus on my issues. In a very short time I gained a deeper insight, new learning and a clear way forward. The sessions were delightfully surprising, effective and professionally delivered.

Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.

Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.
