"After thinking about it for a couple of years, I finally bit the bullet and invested in myself with a programme of coaching with Rebecca. I chose her after her thoughtful and considered reply to a question I asked on a forum really resonated. We gelled immediately and I felt very comfortable and safe within our sessions. Rebecca provided a simple but effective framework and gently held me to account with the self-reflection exercises. The process really shone a light on what I probably had always known, but it gave me the clarity and the nudge to take action. I’m delighted to say I’ve made significant changes to my life and career off the back of it, feeling like I’m now back in control, rather than the hamster wheel many of us stay stuck on. If you are committed and prepared to put in the work, I can’t recommend Rebecca’s programmes highly enough. It was truly transformative for me! Thanks Rebecca."
Kelly Keating, change leader
"If you need help to structure your chaos, I can highly recommend Becky. She has been an excellent career coach, guiding me from uncertainty and ambiguity about my future to a feeling of calm and control. With her contagious cheerful personality, she immediately invites the optimist in you to come out and explore the many options you didn't realise you had. Then, with her sharp and thorough analysis, she guides you towards clarity and actionable steps. If you're looking for a career coach (regardless of your gender or family composition), don't wait, just reach out to Becky!"
Bat-el Berger, finance and operations professional
"When I started working with Rebecca, I felt stuck in my job search, lacking confidence to get out of my comfort zone and starting to doubt my own abilities. She made me feel at ease straight away and created a safe space for me to get unstuck. Rebecca is so personable, funny and insightful; she cares about her clients and genuinely wants them to succeed, I could feel that immediately. She's been there herself, being stuck in a career that was no longer inspiring and that gives her an edge and a level of insight into the situation that no coaching training can give you. She's super flexible in her approach and will create a tailored coaching programme to your specific circumstances and what you really need. I can only recommend her, she's brilliant!"
Francesca Gioia, talent acquisition
After completing my psychology degree, I entered the corporate world. After spending four years in recruitment agencies, I transitioned 'in-house'. I spent 14 years working for Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS), a world-leading recruitment process outsourcing company. I had the opportunitiy to work in numerous organisations, including Deloitte, 3i and Credit Suisse.
After having my children I transitioned internally - taking a senior manager role programme managing the set up of new clients within AMS. I therefore developed not only my commercial competencies and an in-depth understanding of the corporate world, but also my people development skills. I purposely navigated myself into a role primarily focused on leading teams and nurturing their growth. I was also involved in the internal mentoring programme operating across AMS.
What Drew You To Coaching?
After having my children in 2013 and 2015, I found my priorities, values and motivations had changed. There was nothing wrong with the company I worked for or the role I had, but it no longer lit me up. I felt lost, confused, angry and even resentful. How had I worked so hard to get to this point in my career and then not be happy?
I personally had some coaching and then realised career coaching as a career for myself would be perfect.
Given my personal experiences as a working mum, I chose to focus on helping parents who find themselves at a crossroads after having children; who are unhappy in their careers but cannot see what to do or where to go next in order to be happy in their careers again.
The thing I love most about this is seeing my clients go from lost, going around in circles, feeling like there's no happy alternative, to being happy and positive again. I love seeing them realise the opportunities that do exist and watching them, with my support and guidance, do the work that enables them to be happy at work once again. Nothing fills me with more job satisfaction than receiving a message from a client telling me they got the job/ interview for a career change role/ promotion!
