Career coaching for doctors and public health leaders
unsure of your next career move
experiencing feeling lost, stuck, or burning out in your career
dreading retirement or wondering about a later life career
thinking of a potentially significant change in career direction
facing a difficult career transition, or
wanting support to prepare to find a new role?
Your Career Coaching Programme will be tailored to your unique needs, and will enable you to find clarity and a way forward. Career Coaching focuses specifically on your career direction and career decisions, including planning your later life career or retirement.
We will work together through a structured, evidence based ‘career counselling’ process, tailored to your specific circumstances. However complex your situation, I will provide guidance and support to help you to make the best decisions for yourself, and to formulate a rewarding future career plan, based on a detailed understanding of your unique needs in your personal and professional life and a comprehensive review of your options. You will be able to move forwards with a plan, a positive, re-focussed outlook, and a high level of personal and professional satisfaction into a rewarding future life and career.
If you already know the direction you wish to take next, I can help you to feel confident in your plans, and to put them into action. I can also help you with the process of securing a new position including applying for roles, CV and interview preparation, or setting up your own independent role.
Career Coaching can also include any elements of Leadership Coaching and/or Wellbeing Coaching as part of a mixed programme: every coaching programme is bespoke to your specific needs, with clear goal setting at the start of our relationship together.
