Why is career coaching important? Things have changed a lot over the last 10-15 years, and workplaces along with career routes have become more diverse and complex, causing many people understandable issues in adapting to changes and work cultures which may not be a good fit for them. Unhappiness at work can often filter through into our personal lives, meaning that we really do take our problems home.
Whether you’re looking at accelerating your career, looking at how to best manage workplace challenges or looking at a career transition into a new role or your own business, career coaching is a powerful aide to getting that clarity, direction and control. Whilst there are many articles and books on careers, every person and work environment is different and what might work for one person may not work for another. Without the right direction it can quite quickly start to impact other aspects of your life, mindset and motivation.
Having progressed in the corporate and start up world, with experience of a range of workplace cultures, I can help support you. If you choose me as your career coach I will provide personalised coaching to help you make changes to elevate you in your work and career, stay motivated, on track with long term career goals and to better deal with any unique challenges. I will also work with you to develop a determined mindset and to make sure you don’t give up or settle for anything less than you deserve.

Just some of the success stories
“I got in touch with Pritpal in order to overcome a difficult moment in my career where I was looked over for a promotion.
Working with Pritpal I was able to understand the reasons behind this and put together a plan of action in order to overcome my weaknesses. Pritpal also helped me build mental resilience, which was key for me in being able to get through my day with the same motivation and enthusiasm as I had started it. During this process I decided that I wanted to change my job and Pritpal was fantastic in providing her advice on applications and my CV; as a result I was able to secure a great new role which I can’t wait to start!
I would highly recommend Pritpal if you’re looking for someone to help you overcome any issues at work or provide you with excellent advice and guidance on your applications.”
“The coaching sessions have given me more confidence about my career and the knowledge I have gained has put me on the right path. As a result of the coaching, my application writing has improved significantly and I am more clear about my career goals”
