I am also a marketing specialist of 20 years\' standing with IBM, Cap Gemini and BT.
Having left corporate life, I now primarily provide personal coaching services by telephone, email or MSN - or in person if you live in the north west of England. People come into coaching for a number of reasons - for instance: to be supported through a transition or a major life change, to change career direction or overcome redundancy, to adapt to changing life or work circumstances, to build personal confidence, or sometimes simply because of a feeling of stuckness that they cannot quite put their finger on.
A coach is not a teacher, or an instructor, or a counsellor, or a project manager.
A coach will help you to work through the situation, encouraging you to look at aspects that you might not have considered, sometimes exploring with you the dark spots and spaces you may have been trying to ignore. A coach will challenge your perception, your way of thinking about things, and aims to help you to widen your perspective, so that you remove perceived barriers, and open up new options for moving forward.
Your coach is a source of encouragement, a cheerleader, someone who wants you to succeed just as much as you want it for yourself, and someone who will help you achieve your goals.
I also work with clients to develop really strong CVs - not just to make them look pretty, but to develop impactful content that targets well, grabs attention and gets interviews.
As a very active sideline, I still work on strategic marketing projects, act as a facilitator for companies and other organisations, and produce and edit web copy and SEO-focused copy.
