"I came to Caroline for help after finding myself feeling really stuck in a job which was making me very unhappy. My confidence was incredibly low which meant I was struggling to showcase my skills which in turn made applying for new jobs very challenging and daunting.
Caroline has been incredibly patient, understanding and non-judgemental. Her thoughtful questioning has made me think about some of the limiting beliefs I have been carrying about myself – beliefs which have been affecting my ability to move forward positively. Caroline has shown me some practical tools which have helped me recognise the value in my skills and identify what I am good at, whilst allowing me to focus on other areas which I need to strengthen. This helped me incredibly in rewriting my CV to best showcase my skills and abilities while boosting my confidence. While I still have a little way to go to meet all my objectives, I'm now feeling much more positive about my job search and career prospects and am already receiving positive feedback from agencies and prospective employers"

THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ME
You're feeling a bit stuck right now and although I firmly believe you have the answers within you, as you are the the expert in you, sometimes the 'noise' of life gets in the way. I can help clear that so you can achieve career success and satisfaction. I have spent over 15 years supporting people through their career journeys, both in the career guidance and coaching sector, but also as a learning and development professional in HR teams. I have also been in leadership positions and a hiring manager myself many times and know what employers are looking for when it comes to recruitment.
As well as all my professional experience, I have a wealth of credentials including diplomas in Career Guidance & Development (OCR), Career Coaching (Oxford Learning) and the Certificate of Coaching and Mentoring (ILM, accredited by the EMCC - European Mentoring & Coaching Council), as well as the Level 5 diploma in Learning and Development (CIPD). I am also a licensed practitioner for Myers Briggs (MBTI) and Thomas International PPA (DISC theory) and TEIQ (Trait Emotional Intelligence Indicator).
"Receiving coaching from Caroline at the Talent Cycle has improved my mindset and productivity significantly. In the context of a series of friendly chats she has drawn out from me the actions I need to take to move my business forward rather than sitting in a quagmire of ideas and semi-plans. Caroline has helped me clarify my vision and objectives and helped me see for myself how to prioritise in order to make meaningful progress rather than struggling to keep on top of a never-ending 'to-do' list. Amongst other light-bulb moments I have redefined my niche market, clarified my marketing approach and set in motion an efficient plan to create an online aspect to my business.
Caroline listens attentively and asks pertinent questions that assured me she understood my business and me! There is no jargon or complicated methods to apply, just a straight-forward approach to help you\your business make realistic plans and actions, and of course, having such an approachable person to be accountable to has been very helpful too. As a sole-trader I was missing having someone invested in collaborating with me and the benefits of having done so have been many and varied and all very positive! I would recommend working with the Talent Cycle and look forward to continuing to do so myself."

I bet your head is spinning right now. One moment everything is fine, the next you've had an unexpected conversation where the life you trusted has taken a dramatic turn and suddenly you are faced with redundancy and career change. I've been there myself and know what an emotional and practical upheaval it can be.
For some, this is a great opportunity to take the new career path you'd secretly dreamed of. But you weren't prepared for this right now and making big decisions about your life and career, feels particularly challenging at this moment. What if you choose the wrong thing? I can help coach you to gain clarity on your career goals and confidence in the path to get there.
For others, your confidence has been knocked and you just need to get a new job and fast. So you want some direct guidance and advice on exactly how to do that. This is something I can help with as well, using my years of experience working in busy HR/recruitment teams, in the careers sector and having been a hiring manager myself, to make sure you're putting forward winning applications and interviews.
You don’t want to waste time on failed job applications or picking the wrong job, so let me guide you through the recruitment process quickly and successfully.
CAREER CHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT
You're feeling stuck, and with work being such a huge part of your life, it is not only draining, but taking over. It is making you question your decisions and even the brilliant skills and knowledge you have built up, so now you are even wondering if you could get another job. Whether you have outgrown your current role or wondering whether it was ever right for you and want a complete career change, to make the brave move you need a plan.
From working with clients and my own personal experience, I know how important it is that when you are thinking about a career move, you get this right. I can help you with planning for this, deciding what it is you actually want, and how to take (and sell!) your transferable skills and knowledge to get you there.
"“I’ve been working with Caroline as I’ve stepped into a senior management role for the first time. I’ve found this to be a real step change and with a broader and more strategic portfolio of work. Caroline has helped me to challenge myself to think in a different way and develop strategies to gain confidence in my new role. I’ve come away from my sessions with Caroline with a renewed sense of motivation and clarity on how I can move forward. I’ve noticed in the past few weeks that I’ve been actively using some of the approaches we identified in the session and I am seeing a difference. I’m really grateful to Caroline for helping me to navigate this period of change and looking forward to my next session!”
