career coach and mindset mentor
I’m Helen, and I was stuck in my career.
I built a successful finance and marketing career with major UK and Australian companies. I worked hard, achieved senior roles, and professional recognition. My career looked great on paper, but… I always felt out of place.
I was desperate to make things better. I tried changing jobs. I tried sucking it up. Nothing worked.
I finally realised
Instead of being in charge, I’d let my career happen to me and I’d become weighed down by expectations.
Since then I have
✓ Identified exactly who I am and what’s important to me giving me confidence in my career choices, and
✓ Designed a career aligned with my core values that feels both meaningful and successful
Now I’m ready to help you

How it works
STEP 1: Prepare
Like any important project, career confidence starts with a strong foundation. You acquire confidence over time through education, new experiences, and exposure to different environments. It’s a life skill you can master.
We’ll start by clearly defining who you are and the value you bring to any workplace.
STEP 2: Purpose
You feel more engaged in the work you do and will achieve greater success when the work you do is meaningful. You’ll be more motivated, enthusiastic, inspired and far more likely to feel positive about who you are and what you do.
I’ll help you uncover what’s most important to you about the way you work.
STEP 3: Prioritise
If you want career success, you need to be know where you want to go and create a framework to help you filter and select the right steps and opportunities. When you’re clear and articulate about what you want, you’ll find others follow your lead.
I’ll show you the process you need to make confident career choices and decisions.
STEP 4: Position
It’s time to take control of your story and position yourself as the ideal candidate for the career you want. Developing your personal brand in a way that showcases what you want, what you stand for and what value you provide ensures you’re well positioned to find and be offered the right types of opportunities.
With everything you’ve learned so far, you’ll develop your personal career story.
STEP 5: Propel
It’s time to get out there and take action. Let’s test and fine tune your strategy. We’ll discuss the obstacles most likely to get in your way and create a plan so you’re ready to overcome them.
Finally we’ll create an action plan that will prepare you for making your next career steps and decisions.

Answers to your questions
Are you still wondering if the Career Confidence Program is right for you? Here’s some answers that might help.
What happens at our virtual coffee catch up?
I’ll ask you some questions to learn more about you, what’s going on in your career right now and what support you’re looking for. And, of course, I’ll answer any questions you have.
Many coaches use this type of call to push you into purchasing their programs. I don’t believe in that approach. I want you to be 100% sure it’s something you want to do before you take the next step.
What if I’m not happy. Can I get a refund?
If you experience a change of circumstances after you’ve signed up and prior to the end of our first session and you wish to walk away from the program, I’ll provide a full refund.
No refunds are available after the end of the first 1-1 coaching session.
Will I have changed careers by the end of the program?
There are no guarantees about how long it will take to achieve a career change. It’s always dependent on the amount of effort you invest and the complexity of the change. The important thing is by the end of the program you will know where you’re headed and have a plan to achieving the success you want.
I don’t have a clue what I want to do next in my career, does that matter?
You’re in the right place… this is exactly what I’ll help you get clarity on so you’ll know where you’re headed in future.
I have so many ideas about what I want to do, will you help me choose just one?
So… here’s the thing, you may not need to choose just one. It’s a common fallacy that you need to make black and white decisions about your career. Many people have several different careers throughout their working life, some of them even do more than one thing at the same time. Everyone’s circumstances are different. What I will do is support you to get clear about the options that make sense for you.
I think I want to work for myself. Can you help me with that?
Of course. The beauty of this program is I customise it to suit you and your circumstances. If self-employment, freelancing or even building a business are paths you want to explore, we’ll dive in and find a strategy and plan that will work for you.
Where and when will our 1-1 sessions take place?
I run all coaching sessions online via Zoom videoconference. I’m based in Melbourne, Australia. We’ll discuss and agree a suitable regular time slot once you’ve signed up to the program.
How much time will I need to invest outside of our calls?
Ideally you’ll spend a couple of extra hours each week to work through the workbook activities or other assignments we discuss in our sessions.
What if I have a holiday scheduled during the 12 weeks?
Absolutely no problem at all, I’ll work with you to adjust your scheduled calls as required.
What support will you provide outside of our 1-1 coaching calls?
I’ll provide unlimited email and message support. If you need to discuss something urgently (e.g. e.g. something big has happened at work or your submitting a job application), you can also take advantage of up to three 20 minute laser coaching calls.
I don’t live in Australia, can I still work with you?
Absolutely. If you are not in Australia, your price for the program will not include Australia’s 10% GST.
What are your qualifications?
I have more than 20 years finance and marketing leadership experience with major UK and Australian companies. I’m a accredited Intention MethodTM coach and I hold Master of Marketing (RMIT), Bachelor of Economics (University of Queensland) and Cert IV in Training and Assessment (Victoria University) qualifications. I’ve blended my decades of professional experience with coaching skills to develop practical, evidence-based career design solutions.
