Why work with me?

There are many coaches offering similar services, so why would working with me be different?

I understand first hand through my own career journey and old fashioned life experience that job hunting and career change can be tough. Especially when faced with life-changing events such as illness, divorce, starting a family, single parenthood and more.

I was a single parent for many years and I have seen the world of work from many different perspectives.

After the birth of my second child, I founded Career Cafe Coach to support people who find job hunting challenging.  People who want to be empowered on their journey and stop feeling stuck!

I now work with people who I used to meet in my recruiting days but didn't have the time to give the support and advice they clearly wanted and needed during their job search.

I love watching my clients grow, gain confidence from coaching and start to see the world of work through different eyes.

Many of my clients have had excellent careers and they have great job prospects but they lack the confidence and the right support to help them change direction or find work they love.

Outside agencies often don't have the time or resources to spend supporting them one to one.

Are you putting on a brave face? ( I know I often did!) Do you lack clarity and direction?  Do you feel like you are going around in circles? Do you lack the time to make desired change to your working life?

I can help you with this. 

Career coaching helps you to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.

You want change?  Let's talk.


I would highly recommend Jo for Career Coaching and I have found her so helpful when making changes in my career. Jo is a great listener and really understands her subject. She has an authentic approach to coaching and makes the whole experience really positive!
