The Feedback

“Denise asked questions and patiently waited for me to come up with some answers. I now realise they were all the right questions! Career Coaching helped me to review my skillset. After working in teaching for 16 years, I thought I was pigeon-holed and could never get a job doing anything else but coaching helped me to assess what I’m good at, what I need to work on and it made me feel more confident. Before the coaching, Denise had given me a questionnaire and part of it asked me to evaluate what I was good at. At the time I didn’t feel like I was good at anything, so I found it very challenging but before our final coaching session, I had written my CV, a supporting statement and already applied for a job.”
