Career Development

Anna Mumsnet Workfest Career ClinicAre you at a crossroads in your life and confused about which way to go? Does your job feel unsatisfactory and uninspiring?  Are you unemployed and looking for a new direction?  Have you taken time off work to bring up your family or care for a loved one, resulting in loss of confidence and career focus?

When did you last invest time in yourself?  People go to the gym or join a club for physical fitness, but often neglect their psychological needs.

We work with you on an individual basis, exploring your strengths, your passions and your experience, helping you to focus on where you should go next, and giving you the confidence to make positive steps forwards.  Our passion is empowering clients to make changes in their lives, supporting them through this process, and understanding how work and life can work together better.

Whether in person, on the phone, or through Skype, for a single session or a course, we can arrange what works best for you.

“Working with Anna really helped me focus on what was important as I returned to work after paternity leave.”

  2. Really understand yourself – What are your strengths, your passions, your hates?

  4. Talk through your thoughts and plans with a neutral, honest friend or a careers coach.  Being able to plan before making a move means you are more likely to succeed.
