Transition Into a Fulfilling Creative Career

Transitioning into a more fulfilling career means different things to each of us. Depending on where you are on your journey, our career change coaching sessions will help you define and work towards your career goals, big or small. 

Some of the many ideas that we could focus on during our coaching sessions, to give your current life new meaning and purpose, include:

  • Adjustments to your current role

  • Changing departments within your current company

  • Negotiating a promotion or pay increase

  • Assessing your interests and strengths 

  • Exploring career change ideas

  • Exploring available options to transition into a new career

  • Navigating learning a new skill, starting a course, or taking a gap year

  • Developing the idea of starting your own business

Working towards a goal is a truly inspiring feat, no matter the outcome. There is nothing as exciting as turning a dream into reality, and the lessons you learn along the way are invaluable. Career change coaching is a way to invest in yourself and your future, providing you with powerful ways to identify your career goals and move towards them.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others

What Might Be Holding You Back

It is likely that as you progressed through your developmental years, you took on the life that others saw for you. Many of us studied or trained and drifted into careers that were not matched with our skills or passions and continued in quiet desperation, or boredom, without knowing how to approach effective and fulfilling career change. 

Family, friends, society, and the media force-fed us ideas of the kind of lifestyle or career we should be happy with. Creative endeavours and dreams, in a broad sense, were not high on the agenda, and even named as something shameful. We were told by parents or society that ‘life is not a walk in the park’, and to ‘get on with it’, shutting down any spark towards an individual path. 

Data Researcher and Ted Talk speaker, Professor Brene Brown noted in one of her studies, that 85% of the men and women interviewed remembered an event in their childhood that was so shameful, it changed how they thought of themselves for the rest of their lives. 

50% of those events revolved around creativity. About this, she says: ‘...Creativity for me is the way I share my soul with the world, it is the only unique contribution we will make in this world. Unused creativity is not benign, it will make you sick as it metastases into resentment.’

But we are living through times of unprecedented change. Unsurprisingly, for many of us, previously unquestioned rules and assumptions are now being challenged. In a fast-changing world, creativity and adaptability are more

Work & Career Coaching for Creatives and Dreamers

My career change coaching service is informed by the same principles that drive my broader transformational coaching practice. I offer a safe and non-judgmental place where to creatively explore your ideas, passions, and visions. I will encourage you to articulate your values and motivations,  define your skills and strengths, and gain perspective on the opportunities that are available to you and the ones you can create. 

We’ll also explore and identify the internal and external blockages that are stopping you from making progress, like fear of failure, or existential and financial pressure. Finally, we will set your ideas into motion, define clear steps towards your goals, and build a framework for the creative life and career that you envision.
