Reinvent your career: be challenged and inspired
Career reinvention coaching is a consultancy service I offer for those eager to rekindle a previous passion or skill, feeling trapped in a particular career, feeling the time is right to try something new, wishing to downsize or wanting to pursue something more challenging or inspiring.
“Arranging life’s events into a coherent story is one of the most subtle yet demanding challenges of career reinvention. To reinvent one’s self is to rework one’s story, revising it frequently, trying out different versions on others.” Working Identity (2003) Herminia Ibarra.

Get the job you want – and be happy!
I’d love to meet you, whether by Zoom, Skype or in person at my office in Pangbourne (near Reading) in Berkshire. Together, we can work on transforming your career to give you a less stressful, more balanced and brighter future.
It’s been a year since our meeting and I just wanted to thank you for helping me to focus on my key strengths and interests. I’ve just been promoted to a Business Critical Account Manager responsible for building and maintaining relationships with customers, and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you for the coaching and advice – I start on Monday as Chief Product Marketing Officer. The visualisation of walking into the new office did really help, and just having some of those structured approaches to answering questions kept me going.
I was facing an important life transition after 35 years in the corporate world so finding renewed purpose and re-inventing my identity was essential. With Helen’s coaching and encouragement I have secured voluntary work and am in the process of identifying further options by using my network.
I am finally out the other side now and feel like a new person. I have accepted a finance role, which will hopefully free up some time for family and exploring my new love of interior design. Couldn’t have got there with out you.
Your guidance through the interview process and pointers toward proper preparation gave me, if results are considered, a confident and winning approach in a very competitive first move into industry from a Big 4 accountancy firm.
I have worked with Helen for 6 years. She has been very effective in helping me through a change in career, and through ensuing regular executive coaching sessions that keep me on track.
Helen has been a fantastic help in enabling me to progress through a big change in my career. I now have much more clarity on my skills and what I want from my career.
Helen’s individualised approach boosted my confidence and helped me to completely re-evaluate my achievements and to see my potential in a much more positive light, so that I was able to reposition myself and secure my ideal job.
