How I work

I work mainly on a one-to-one basis, helping individuals get clarity on who they are, and identify the direction that is right for them. I provide a space for people to share their thoughts and ideas, to explore their hopes and fears, to talk through possible ideas for next steps and together see how they could be made to happen. I may use effective psychometric assessments to provide relevant information to enhance our discussion alongside creative exercises. With almost 30 years work in this field, I have a great deal of resources to call on.

Alongside career discovery, I offer executive coaching, and a chance to talk through current work challenges. I also help with all aspects of job search, from clarity on how you stand out to creating effective CVs and LinkedIn profiles. I provide interview coaching and guidance on being effective at interviews and assessment centres.

My clients range from school students to people in later life seeking a new direction. From first time job seekers to Directors and CEOs.
“Don’t come to me for the boring and traditional, people choose me because I continually research, review and revise. I love discovering new ways of helping my clients achieve the results they want.”


A Chartered Psychologist, Member of the Association for Coaching and Fellow with the Career Development Institute. Alongside academic training, I have attended Mastery University with Anthony Robbins, courses with Gerard Egan and Deepak Chopra and regularly attend professional development courses.

“It’s not just about the qualifications, Denise is noted as being creative, visionary and fun to work with. She loves to gather new information and resources to best serve her clients”.

“Many people offer career coaching, what has made Denise stand out for over 25 years is how she uses her energy and creativity to identify trends and adapt and improve traditional approaches for the benefit of her clients. It’s not enough to learn new ways of advancing your career though; you need the determination to turn it into consistent action”.

Denise is the author of 8 career books including Find Work at 50+, ‘How to Get a Job in a Recession’ and ‘Now You’ve Been Shortlisted’ and the creator of online career programmes such as Get Interview Ready and How to Use LinkedIn to Manage Your Career.
