Helping You To Create Fulfillment In Your Career
Imagine how many hours of your life you spend in work? For many work is just part of the daily routine, where they have little or no fulfilment from their job. They get that ‘Monday Morning’ feeling where they dread to go to work. They feel like they’re on a ‘treadmill’ - working long hours and return home every night unfulfiled.
Yet for some, their work truly inspires them and working is effortless. Their work provides them with meaning; they feel like they are contributing to something bigger than them and they really enjoy it!
Career Coaching gives people confidence, insight, encouragement and inspiration to help them with their career.
Career coaching can be helpful to people at all stages of their professional journey, including:
The client brings a topic to the initial coaching session to discuss with me (see ‘When can Career Coaching help?’ below - for example topics). Typically, the topic is used as the theme for the whole Career Coaching programme (as the topic tends to be a big one). The client and I explore the topic in detail to help define a clear outcome (the ‘big goal’) for the programme.
The ‘big goal’ is usually broken down into smaller goals and ‘milestones’ and these are worked on in the individual sessions. Time is then spent exploring the current situation around the topic in detail. The client and I move on to strategise together to identify and evaluate options to achieve the required outcome. I use a variety of coaching techniques and strategies to support and challenge the client during the coaching sessions.
The client decides on the specific action/s that he or she will commit to, to work on after the session. Coaching also occurs between the sessions as this is when the client works on the agreed action/s and client learning is further developed. I provide support to the client during this time. The outcome of the action/s is reviewed at the next session before determining the next topic and goal to work on.
I have over 30 years of business and career experience. Before creating my coaching business ‘New Perspectives’, I was co-founder and director of a successful mobile technology company. With my business partners, we developed the business from zero to an annual 8-figure turnover and created career opportunities for over 30 people (many of which I coached).
We navigated the business through the turbulent times of the 2008 global financial crisis; developed the business; helped many customers along the way and on to the successful acquisition of the business. This experience has provided me with a solid foundation to help people create satisfying careers through my Career Coaching programmes.
I’m an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified coach. I combine my business knowledge, career experience and extensive coach training to help my clients create the life and career that they want.
I work with a diverse range of professionals at all career stages.
Here are testimonials from some of my recent clients:
“The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kev’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kev’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kev’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go with Kev.”

“I started my career coaching journey with Kev 12 months ago. I can say with all honesty that it’s been life changing! He’s given me the space and guidance I needed to look at my own thoughts and actions and it’s lead to me being able to manage my anxiety and find drive and ambition I didn’t know existed! I’d recommend coaching with Kev to anyone!”
Nia Baker – Manager
“I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he’ll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.”
