I am a licensed Career Coach and MCIPD-qualified HR professional and studied Psychology at degree level. I have over 15 years of HR experience in the not-for-profit and private sectors and also worked for an outplacement company. I personally understand the emotional and practical challenges of returning to work and managing work, personal and family commitments as I took a career break and made a career change following the birth of my second daughter. Listening to individuals talk about their careers, and how taking a break affected their self-belief, confidence and clarity on what to do next, inspired me to gain my Career Coaching license. I have provided individual career coaching and workshops to a wide range of people returning after a career break. I enjoy helping individuals to use their skills and experience to work in a role that is fulfilling and enables them to have a work life balance.
