To help you work out the next steps in your career

Are you a teacher who is looking for a career change but you have no idea what you are able to do? You have come to the right place. I help burnt out, exhausted teachers design another meaningful career path. As a former teacher I understand the challenges and dilemmas           you are facing and I can help you work through them. 


Does this sound familiar...

  •  You don’t know what else you can do with your teaching degree

  •  You’re worried you won’t find anything better

  •  You don’t want to start at the bottom of the pay scale again

  •  You don’t want to have to go back to university and run-up another debt 

Just imagine how it would feel if you knew you would have a new career you love by the end of this term or year?


I can also help you if you are ‘between’ jobs or just in a job that you absolutely hate?  Perhaps you have been out of the workforce for a while? Or you might be a baby boomer who would like to retire from your regular career but find a way to supplement your income while spending your time meaningfully.


My 6 week package will help you find direction and clarity and design a job that you really love.

 The content is flexible and suited to your particular needs and circumstances. I  can guide and motivate you to step out of your comfort zone and find a job that truly inspires you.

Ask me about a 90 minute mini package which is designed to help you work out whether you are in the wrong job for you, and identify the the next step.

Transition to retirement coaching sessions are designed for people who are planning for retirement or who have recently retired and are looking for more meaning and purpose in the next stage of life. Increased life expectancy means that people are spending much longer in this phase of life than ever before.  You have had an active and fulfilling career. You have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience that you would like to continue to use. This calls for a new approach to retirement and the next stage of your life.

Have you planned for your retirement? You probably have visited a financial planner and put some sort of financial plan in place, but  have  you made a lifestyle plan for retirement?

Discover your 'why' in this time of transition and create  a fun and meaningful life, as together we work to design a plan for a fulfilling and active retirement. Enjoy more free time , a slower pace perhaps but maintain a purpose and connections.

Find meaning and purpose before and after retirement


I recently found myself struggling to re-enter the workforce after some enforced time-out due to health reasons. I was now a woman over 50, with quite a gap in my CV, suffering a significant loss of confidence and direction, and struggling to re-identify myself. I was most lucky to be recommended Carolyn as a Career Coach by a friend to help guide me back on track.  Over 6 weeks, Carolyn became a sturdy, patient and insightful force, helping me in all areas from CV up-dating and goal-setting, to re-identifying and clarifying personality traits and needs in order to formulate and focus my new-found focus and confidence. I thank her for her work and wholly recommend her services!  Leena  


“I was lucky enough to have some sessions with Carolyn recently and I found that they have really helped me to firstly clarify my goals and secondly to put in place some really achievable actions that will move you closer to your goals. Carolyn is wonderful at helping you come up with your own answers whilst at the same time providing some valuable insights. These sessions have certainly assisted me to make some really positive changes in my life and I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for a great Life Coach. 


I’ve had the pleasure to working with Carolyn during a crucial time in my life. My personal and my professional life were in limbo and I had no clarity about where to go from there. The weekly life coaching sessions with Carolyn and the ‘homework’ in between were important factors in turning things around. Carolyn’s knowledge and coaching skills have had a massive positive impact on my life. She allowed me to understand better who I am and where I want to be. Some of the exercises were just eye opening and Carolyn gave me tools I’m now using in my day to day life. I can’t thank Carolyn enough for her guidance and wisdom. Without ever pushing or questioning me, she made a difference that I will always be thankful for. I can highly recommend Carolyn as Life Coach and look forward to working with her again”

I did the course offered by Carolyn's Coaching 'Getting Started with Career Changes for Teachers' and can highly recommend it!

It's a great resource giving valuable insight into career options and also for realising the worth of teacher's transferable skills.

It only takes a few hours to complete and is presented in a fun way where you collect xp's - experience points - as you progress! I completed it on a lazy Saturday morning.

Anyone who is thinking of leaving their traditional teaching role would get a ton of value from this course.
