From my first contact with Belinda, I found her to be warm, encouraging and positive. I was nervous about taking the first step of career coaching, but after receiving my first email from Belinda, I knew that it was right for me. Belinda made me feel completely at ease and was supportive and encouraging throughout the process. The sessions were exactly what I needed as they allowed me to have the time to really examine what I was looking for in my new career. I definitely think that the sessions have given me a new perspective on my work/life balance, my values and what I can give to new employers. I also feel a lot more confident about the process as a result of feeling empowered by Belinda's coaching methods.
Belinda has supported me through developing my CV, my LinkedIn profile (which I had never had to have before), both of which have been incredibly useful. Belinda also helped me to identify my skills, strengths and achievements and how to do demonstrate how they relate to a different industry. Our conversations challenged me to reflect on my next career choice in a holistic manner and I am hugely grateful for that as I had been allowing my work to encroach too far into other areas of my life. Moving away from teaching has been a difficult decision but career coaching has provided me with the confidence, knowledge and mindset I need to make it happen.
