Coaching Services For People Passionate about their Career

What’s involved in Career Coaching?

Every career coaching session is bespoke to your requirements.  However, here’s an idea of what could be included:


  • S.W.O.T analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) to identify and map out skills, experiences, qualifications, knowledge, and transferable skills
  • PESTLE analysis (Politics, Economics, Social, Technology, Legal, Environmental) to research the jobs market, sectors and industries and identify opportunities, and routes to market
  • Design a career action plan with goals, objectives, and milestones – A goal without a plan is just a wish!
  • Improve networking skills and how to use LinkedIn to maximize desired outcomes – there are literally millions of decision-makers on LinkedIn.  It’s the biggest people database in the world and it’s free to use.

What are the benefits of hiring a Coach?

What do people I’ve worked with say about me!

Head of Department - National Charity

“Executive jobs you really want don’t come around that often, so I sought out Dawn’s expertise to ensure I maximised my chances of getting the job.

Dawn is knowledgeable, and friendly and was great at celebrating what I already knew and provided constructive feedback on how I could improve on areas including body language, confidence, rapport building and structuring answers.

Equipped with new knowledge, confidence and commitment to put the work in, I got the job.”

J Potter - Manager

“I was very clear from the outset what I wanted from a Life and Career coach. I was doing exceptionally well at work but I lacked confidence and assertiveness in high level meetings.  The sessions were challenging, exploratory within a highly positive atmosphere.

I enjoyed the challenges each session brought, which enabled me to use techniques and simple application methods of communication within my work place.  

Through a lot of hard work and effort Dawn revealed to me new ways at looking at things, ways of breaking negativity in my thought processes and beliefs, all of which were becoming barriers for my personal growth and development.”
