A you shaped career adventure.

For people who need a framework and support – discover a different way to changing career.  

One-to-one coaching that gives you freedom to explore, a flexible structure for direction and an innovative approach for safely taking action, without risking your life’s savings or making the dreaded wrong decision.

Let's start with the important details:

Working with me

  • One-to-one coaching with 2 x 60 minute calls per month.
  • Creative homework assignments for you to undertake between coaching calls.
  • Email support in between coaching calls.
  • A minimum commitment of 3 months.
  • Your investment of £200 per month.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get into the juicy stuff.

I think I can probably guess that you’re spending quite a bit of time in your head.

There are all sorts of thoughts swirling around this idea that maybe you could change your career.

Maybe now is the time, the only chance you will get.

These thoughts strike in the middle of the night as you turn over in bed. That’s at least 30 minutes of sleep lost. 

They slide into your head unannounced during a meeting. Goodbye focus.

They swirl as you try to decide what to eat tonight. You end up making a dud choice.

They taunt you with what could have been:

You ruminate on what sort of contribution you could have made to the world if you were a Nobel prize winning scientist as you pick out toilet rolls in the supermarket.

In the waiting room of the doctor’s surgery you wistfully picture yourself sitting at a beautiful desk with your favourite coffee, the well-trained house rabbit looking at you adoringly whilst you write your next bestseller.

You wonder if you could have been the artist your teacher at school effused was burgeoning within you as you help your five year old draw a cat.

They remind you how trapped you feel.

As you put the washing on overwhelming fog descends and you have no idea what you could be doing differently – do not pass go, head straight to jail. This is it.

This is your life.

Or maybe you do have an idea of what you could do, what you’re capable of, the dream you have nursed secretly. It comes sharply into focus when you are enduring yet another team meeting about the same old topic. How do you get from here to there?

It seems impossible.

All this wistful ruminating as you wash up or go for a walk makes you feel you’re wasting time, precious time, searching for the least risky option; but anything you settle on leaves you with emptiness, disappointment and weariness.

Even the dog isn’t making it better.

It feels like you're treading water whilst you try and figure out what to do.

And just to screw the knife in, these thoughts bring with them a whole host of very unhelpful fears.

The fear of failure.

The worry and burden of the financial risk.

The uncertainty of not knowing the right thing to do.

The judgements.

What will your friends think of you?

What about your partner, your family?

That guy who serves your coffee in that nice place round the corner?

All that education and experience you have. Wasted. You’re just going to throw it all away.

Oh, and shall we mention the complete lack of practical solutions to this struggle that leaves you feeling frustrated?

You’ve read books, taken courses, grasped onto a positive mindset, tried talking about your struggle, doom scrolled social media, googled, but you still haven’t found a way to make meaningful traction on a practical level. It feels like you’re going round in circles.

Stuff it.

Maybe you should just be grateful for what you have in your career and stop searching for something that probably doesn’t exist.

Or should you?

Every now and then.

Occasionally.

Sometimes.

When you least expect it.

A question flutters in amongst the debris of exhausting thoughts and it whispers…

But what if there is another way? Other people seem to forge a new direction for themselves…so, why can’t I?

Grasp this fragile thought and focus on it.

You have made it this far in life and with the right guidance and support you too can discover a new career.

Going on this journey has been eye opening. It has created ideas and possibilities I hadn’t thought of. I loved that I could let my imagination go wild about what I want in both my life and career with no judgement. The biggest surprise was discovering I am more creative than I have ever given myself credit for and I intend to explore this further!

An enlightening experience. You made the dreams in my head seem possible. I am more certain of the path forward and I have the confidence to keep working towards moving to NYC and publishing a book.

Cassie Pham

USA

The relaxing yet sincere space you created meant I felt comfortable to share quite a lot without hesitation. I liked how you challenged me with observations and insights as we worked together. My future priorities are now crystallised.

It’s time for a career adventure.

A career adventure that will open up a world of possibilities and give you confidence to explore what truly interests you.

A career adventure that is low risk (no kayaking over the rapids here!) but will leave you feeling alive.

A career adventure that equips you with tools to use again and again in the future when you find yourself wanting to do something different (because this might not be the last time).

'Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.'

Howard Thurman

Let me introduce you to a whole new way of changing career.

I specialise in working with people who just want to be allowed to be themselves at work and build a new career which fits their needs, plays to their real strengths and sets off their inner sprinkler of joy!

During our time together

  • I will help you discover your hidden treasure; the traits, skills, strengths and experience that you have within you ready to propel you into a new phase of your career.
  • I will guide you through creating a clear and holistic picture about who you are and what’s important for you so you can finally see the real you.
  • Together we will create a powerful vision for your future so you can top up on motivation during your journey.
  • We will uncover those pesky fears and blocks that could be quietly influencing how you see yourself so you can grow in confidence.
  • We will have fun exploring new ways of uncovering possibilities for what you could do next in your career using tried and tested methods rooted in action – think low risk experiments – so that it becomes easy (and dare I say, exciting!) to identify what is viable.
  • I will help you identify what could be holding you back so you feel courageous enough to explore what truly lights you up.
  • I will give you interesting, quirky and creative assignments challenging you to throw off limitations, get curious and expand your thinking – all designed to bring you greater understanding and clarity about what you want, need and are capable of.
  • We will identify where you need to invest your resources (hint: it doesn’t have to be another degree or further training) so you can develop a realistic plan that empowers you to implement your chosen path over the short, medium and long-term, at your speed.
  • And when you need it, we will dive deep into whatever requires unpacking in your head and heart so you can keep moving forwards.
  • And did I mention, we will laugh and have fun?!

Possible side effects may include the following:

It is highly likely that you will view yourself, your career and your life differently as we work together.

There is a risk of developing confidence and having more clarity about the way forward than you have done in a long time.

Dreams may even feel achievable.

You may find yourself uncharacteristically smiling in the mirror and possibly whipping up a hairbrush microphone as you spontaneously sing 'I'm so excited' by The Pointer Sisters.

What you can expect

  • 2 x 60 minute coaching calls per month with me (obviously the highlight).  These will be held virtually.
  • Homework assignments for you to undertake between coaching calls. These are vital to gaining traction so it’s important that you commit to spending 2-3 hours every fortnight investing in yourself.
  • Email support in between coaching calls. I want to make sure you are able to keep moving forwards so any questions you have or where you need further clarification, I will be available on the end of email to support you. I may respond with a written answer or if you’re lucky, I will record a video.
  • A minimum commitment of 3 months so we can set you up for success!  Once that’s completed, you can stay with me as long as you like or you can cancel any time.
  • Your investment of £200 per month.

Book my gift coaching session

Against a backdrop of both personal and professional transition in my life, I've got a clearer sense of what I value, what my priorities are and what actions I need to take to make decisions about my future. A really defining moment was recognising that making connections runs through everything I do; it's what I am drawn to. One significant and successful action I have taken is applying for, and winning, a $30k scholarship to study!

Shelley H

Australia

I started the coaching thinking I had an idea of what I wanted to do and after just the first few weeks, that didn't even come up in any of the exercises. Victoria had me thinking about the different possibilities based on what I could do and what I loved to do, which opened up a bunch of doors. She has a way of asking the right questions to draw out what's hidden inside to help you explore what you might want to do, in a safe space. Now, everything I do is aligned to my values and is leading me to my next adventure. Thank you, Victoria for drawing out what was hidden inside my soul.

Gisèle Grenier

Canada

I really enjoyed going through this journey of self-discovery with Victoria and I have decided to pick up my art after nearly 30 years and explore where it will take me. I feel more confident in making decisions; I'm not hesitating so much and my mind seems to be clearer. I don't feel so afraid of making the wrong decisions. I don't know how this happened, it's like an offshoot from the whole process!

FAQs

You are an explorer and explorers are curious so, you will have questions!

Anyone who finds themselves feeling stuck in their current career with very little idea of what else they could do with the skills and experience they have.   

Maybe you’re realising that you no longer feel fulfilled by work but are unable to pinpoint why; maybe something has triggered you into finally thinking enough is enough; maybe you have left a toxic workplace, you’ve been made redundant or you’re just feeling ready to take some action; maybe you’ve suffered a loss and are tentatively creating a new future; maybe your kids are older and you want to carve out a career that works for you; maybe you are relocating; maybe choices are opening up and you don’t know what to choose.  

If you want to discover career possibilities that you didn’t know you could have, you are action oriented, and you can dig deep to resource yourself for the journey (because it takes time) then this coaching is for you.

I hold the ICF accredited Animas Diploma in Transformational Coaching, the ICF accredited Animas Certificate in Group Coaching and Facilitation and the ICF accredited Firework Coaching licence. I am also a certified Myers-Briggs Step I and Step II practitioner.
