    How I work

    My approach is holistic but also evidence based in order to combine objective information with a client’s personal circumstances. Firstly I aim to use a psychological assessment tool to help provide a client (and myself) with more objective information to base decisions on. Once we look at the career options and discuss the results of the assessments, I will provide action points for the client. I also like to discuss the client’s life (and family) circumstances too, such as current career, current employment status, reasons for change, responsibilities, financial planning, psychological well-being because change can be daunting so it is about making a robust plan of action.

    Experience

    I originally worked in FMCG sales and marketing before changing careers to become a business teacher. More recently I have retrained to become a Business Psychologist and careers coach. I have worked with a range of clients at different stages of their career, from those who have recently graduated but found themselves in the wrong career, to older clients wanting a life change. Feedback is that I am a good listener and coach, I provide clarity within the objectives I set clients. However they like the fact that I have been through this process and can empathise with them, so they trust me and my honesty.
    I have also worked with a number of schools on a freelance basis providing feedback using aptitude and personality assessments to students in Years 10, 11 and 12. Schools like the fact that I also have had an educational background and provide students with an extensive knowledge of academic/vocational/skills training options in order to get to their career goal.
