Career Development

Below you’ll see what happy clients say about working with me on their career development.  I hope their words show you what Career + CV Therapy could do for you.

Meriel, Senior Business Analyst
I’ve worked with Louise at those times in my career when I’ve reached a point in a role when I think I’m ready to move on.  

She’s been a valuable sounding board and a great help with the practicalities of updating my CV and changing jobs.

I recently went to her again for help with the paperwork for my annual performance appraisal, as I needed someone to make it less painful.  I just couldn’t face it myself as it was also a very busy period at work. Keen to get it right, Louise helped me to structure it in such a way that it not only reflected success in my role, but it also became a springboard to request a Flexible Work Arrangement.

After an hour’s session, she’d sent me what I needed, including legal guidelines for an FWA, and questions for me to reflect on and we’d completed an application that was clear, balanced and well-argued. Both as a person and an HR/Comms professional, Louise has an insightful way of looking at and phrasing things, to get to the heart of what needs to be said in order to help you achieve your objective.

Before contacting Louise, I wasn’t sure how it would go, but after our session, I was confident that the appraisal would go well.  It did and I was granted my FWA.

If you’re not sure where you’re going with your career and want some clarity, I’d highly recommend getting in touch with Louise to help you move your career forward.

Neil, Real Estate Developer & Entrepreneur
Louise coached me for about 2-3 years and I could not recommend her highly enough.  The initial period contained more frequent interactions as I looked to understand, define and implement goals for my career and for life in general.  This later morphed into quarterly then periodic check-ins to keep track of the good work we’d done to date.

Louise had a great ability to listen and interpret what the underlying drivers for my actions were.

Building on the good behavioural traits, we developed action plans together and then focused on executing these. This really helped me and improved my life for the better. I liken it to turning a shotgun approach to goals into something closer to a rifle with a telescopic sight.  What more could you want really?

Liz, Live Event Producer
I worked with Louise on my career transition from an in-house role of 10 years to being freelance.  I knew I wanted to leave, for new challenges and more flexibility, but it was difficult to actually make the jump.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Louise to anyone thinking about changing jobs or even switching careers.

Louise was both supportive and practical, which was what I needed. I had to feel confident it would work. We talked through the pros and cons and in the end, I felt confident enough to make the decision and resign.

It’s more than a CV prep service.  It’s helped me change my life and take on exciting new projects, including working on the Olympics in Brazil.
