Career Coaching

The Career Guy, Professional CV Writer, Careers Adviser, Personal Branding Specialist, Redundancy Support
  • You may be a successful person who has climbed the career ladder to find that it’s leaning against the wrong wall.
  • You may feel a general sense of unease that you are in the wrong job or career but don’t know where to go next
  • You may have been made redundant, taken early retirement or a career break and want support in deciding where to go next.
  • You may have lots of ideas about a new career but you are confused about which path to take

The Career Guy’s career coaching programme can help you stand back and look at your options afresh. he can help you understand what is really important to you, uncover your priorities, look at new options and make decisions about which path to take. The one that will excite you like no other.

In only two or three months The Career Guy will take you from a place of uncertainty about your career through to having a clear vision of a career and a life that is right for you, and a plan for how to create it.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain

How does the career coaching work?

The Career Guy’s career coaching programme takes a “whole life” approach. It has three phases: Explore, Dream and Discover.

In the Explore phase we look at who you are and what you really want from your work. In this phase you really get to know yourself and what motivates you. As we work through this phase you’ll become clearer about what is really important to you – your values, key strengths, work motivators, favourite skills, your passions and interests.

In the Dream phase we work together to generate possible career options, including some ideas you will never have thought of before. We look at your whole life, not just your career, to generate a compelling vision for your future life and work.

In the final Discover phase we focus on your chosen path and at practical ways to get you moving along that path. Together we create an action plan to take you from where you are to where you know you want to be.

Who has career coaching?

  • Successful senior or middle managers in mid-career who are outwardly successful, yet inside are feeling bored or unfulfilled.
  • Those in late career who are looking to embark on a new path that is more aligned with their passions and offers them a better balance between work and life.
  • Women who have taken a career break to bring up children.
  • Managers who have been made redundant or taken early retirement and wish to use this opportunity to change career direction.
  • Other clients want to stay in their current organisation but feel that their next move is a critical one and wish to ensure that it is the right one for them and their family.
  • In short, career coaching is for anyone who feels uneasy that their current career is not quite right for them, that they are at some sort of career crossroads, and wish to ensure they take the right path.

What sort of clients come to The Career Guy for career coaching?

The Career Guy’s clients are typically:

  • Senior or middle managers working in large organisations – for example from the civil service or Financial Services industry
  • Managers thinking of moving between sectors, particularly those thinking of moving into or out of the civil service
  • Senior people wishing to use the opportunity offered by redundancy or early retirement to change career
  • Successful professional people who wish to make a major career change or achieve better work/life balance
  • Professional women wishing to change or re-focus their career, perhaps after a career break
  • Those who wish to find the work and the life they’ll love

How long does the programme take?

The full career coaching programme takes around 12 sessions and is usually spread over 3 months.

The sessions need to be quite frequent in order to maintain momentum, yet with sufficient space between them to allow time for any homework to be completed and for the client to reflect.

However if you need more frequent sessions, wish to spread them out over a longer period, or need a shorter, condensed version of the programme, then we can discuss how to tailor the programme to your needs.

What if I have other issues that I wish to bring to the career coaching sessions?

The Career Guy’s career coaching programme is very flexible so we can easily combine it with coaching on other issues. As it takes a “whole life” approach, clients invariably find that it gives them insights which lead to improvements in other areas of their lives.

What are the fees?

For clients funding their own career coaching the fees for a three-month programme are:

Face-to-face coaching £200 per month
Telephone coaching £160 per month
Single two-hour diagnostic session £75

As a sales rep I know the importance of having documents that can sell products, what I couldn't do was write a document that sold ME. The Career Guy taught me how to sell myself and my skills and talents, the CV he produced for me is a perfect example of what a sales document should be. Since receiving my CV and using it I have been invited to far more interviews than ever before in my career.
