This is one-on-one career coaching to help you figure out what you want and make a plan to go get it.
Isn’t being an adult supposed to feel more fun than this?
Maybe you’re worried you studied the wrong degree. Maybe you’re tired of just letting your life and career happen to you, instead of making things happen for you.
Maybe your work feels disappointing, unfulfilling, and meaningless, when you want it to feel exciting, fresh, and impactful.
I can help with that.
Do you find yourself feeling...
Scared that your career so far has been a waste of time.
Like there’s something else out there you’d enjoy more.
Desperate to make your next move, but terrified it’ll be the wrong one.
Overwhelmed by all the different career paths out there.
Eager for change, but not the potential pay-cut that could come with it.
Tired of spending hours searching the internet for the answers.
Unsure of how to speak up for yourself and what you want.
Sick of believing in everyone else more than you believe in yourself.
Like you want to #followyourbliss, but you have no idea what your bliss is.
If you're unhappy, bored, or frustrated in your current role, I can help you get back on track. Stop feeling stuck, helpless, and dissatisfied; start feeling confident and in control.
1-on-1 coaching is for those who feel tired of knowing they have potential, but don't know how to use it.
Let's get you on your path.
"The coaching process, and the
continued support provided by Liz outside of our sessions have been invaluable. She is
empathetic and truly listens to what it I was saying, even if I didn't have a clear picture in my head. I can't thank her enough for helping me at this stage in my career!"
"Got loads of clarity, mainly just by talking out what my interests are and how to go about
working for a company I could be passionate about. You will be guided through processes but ultimately Liz won't make a decision for you.
Thanks again for all your awesome support - so very grateful!"
"Liz allowed me to have a very thorough reset and look at my study and career options and I feel like no stone was left unturned. I was able to start my new pathway with far more confidence as I had so much more knowledge behind me."

Four Months of Dedicated 1-on-1 Coaching With Me
To help you look inward, get clear on your path, and take it by storm.
How it Works
I am both a consultant and a coach for you, offering my 20+ years of experience in career consulting and coaching to help you with your next step. I'll share my best practices for sticky situations and execute your career growth plan.
If your success-blocking thoughts are deeply ingrained, I'll show you how to re-frame them and bid them adieu so you can be the best version of YOU!
10 sessions over four months, you and I will meet for an hour on Zoom every single week. You'll
bring questions a real-time issue in your life that you want to unpack. We'll also make space for those times when life gets in the way (holidays, sick days, and extra time to integrate the lessons).
In these sessions, we're not going to hold back. Everyone needs something different, and it's my job to ensure you get exactly what you need. Structure, accountability, and self-exploration will be the keystones of our time together. I'll be asking you good questions, challenging you on those blind-spots and mental blocks, and hearing you out.
Homework: The Kind You'll Like
For our time together, I'm officially your professional accountability buddy. We'll consult on your career or life goals, create a plan, and I'll walk beside you as you execute the steps to make your dreams happen. And yes, that includes exercises that dig deep, ask the big questions, and get you walking down that path of yours!
You, reconnected to you. Armed with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to take the next best step for you, and feeling AWESOME about your career!
Your job? Show up, be willing to do the work, and take the big steps even when it's scary, because that's how we make great change. I'll be there to support you!

You + me + accountability + structure.
That's a recipe for success! I'll be your dedicated guide, helping you figure out what you want, lay the groundwork, make a tangible action plan, and give you a (loving) shove to go get it.
Know yourself better than you ever have before.
I believe that finding the right career is all about knowing yourself first. That's why you and I are going to dig deep, look to your past, and tap into your inner GPS (it knows where to go).
Your natural gifts, curiosities, deepest needs, and values all have the answers. We're going to go find them.
This is for you if:
You know there's potential that you're wasting, but you're struggling to figure out your next step.
You're committed to making the next best move for you and your career.
You're ready to challenge your assumptions, find your blind spots, and eradicate the thoughts holding you back.
- You're more than ready to finally get your career figured out.
- You don't want to waste another Sunday night dreading your work week.
This is not for you if:
You're not looking to shake things up.
You're not willing to dig deep and talk through what you're thinking, feeling, and dreaming.
You only want help with your CV or LinkedIn profile (we'll get to that, but self-knowedge is our first step).
Don't waste another weekend dreading the start of the week.
Don't start another Monday hating what you're doing.
Don't just wonder about what your life could be.

"I found coaching with Liz very positive and rewarding and would recommend that
others either at a crossroads in their work or life, or looking to optimize aspects of
their life would benefit from coaching with Liz!
I found value in being coached privately as it allowed me to explore and share
feelings and experiences which I would not have been comfortable sharing in a
"I feel like Liz worked out very quickly my general emotional state and that I
needed someone to gently nudge me along rather than being too direct or hard
Taking the time and energy to focus on myself and my career is the best
investment I have ever made. I just loved my sessions - I was genuinely sad when they were over, even though I was ready."
"Well worth it. Time to focus on my career rather than just watching it unfold. Helped me get clear
on my direction.
I found it so helpful. I now know what is important to me and where I want to place my energy. You will more than get your money's worth. I'm really pleased that I made the investment!"
