I felt panicked and unprepared for an upcoming interview and unsure about competencies so I got in touch with Career & Life Planning. I thought the process of coaching was good, I got a bit jaded in the middle but we got there in the end. The process forced me to prepare and remember key points as opposed to rambling and not hitting the points needed. After I had completed coaching I felt prepared and calm. I could have done with another 48 hours to prepare but that was down to me & not the coaching. I feel that coaching benefited me during my interview. I’ve already given Career & Life Planning’s details to a number of my colleagues. I found the process invaluable as it forced me to prepare and not leave everything until the last minute. I would definitely use the service again and would include the application form preparation at that stage.

— Interview Coaching


Before I started working with Joe, I would feel very stressed, and I was close to making a rushed decision that could have harmed my professional and personal life. Now I am back in control and have the right tools to plan the next steps on my career carefully. I had never used coaching services before. Something that was a bit shocking and yet satisfying, was to find that they wouldn’t tell what I wanted to hear. Instead of that, they told me what I needed to hear.

— Career Coaching


I was making similar mistakes throughout my career and Joe made things clearer to me on those issues. It also was an eye opener in that my own private life needed working on and that it was up to me to make these changes. Joe is understanding and is supportive during the career guidance period. He gives you 100% of his time and gets to the root of the problem. He is easy to talk to.

— Career Coaching


I was given pointers which helped me to focus on what I was looking for in both my professional and personal life. The guidance I received helped me greatly in the interview process and I believe led me to being offered the position and most grateful to Joe for all his help.

— Interview Coaching


Just the few weeks and sessions that I was able to have Joe really helped me change the way I view and do things. Joe helped me tremendously I would send him to every person I know if I could… I “CHOOSE” not to stress out anymore. Thank you for helping me to see things from all angles in all areas personal and professional to think before I react and just take a moment think about how I can get the results I am looking for. You are amazing at what you do. Thank you for showing me and teaching me to understand, listen, think, pause and plan.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the interview coaching we did last week. It was a huge benefit to me and I certainly delivered a much improved interview after our coaching.

The coaching with Joe has been invaluable. Over the course of just 4 sessions, he has helped me to clear my head of so many things from my past and helped put goals around my life. His approach is very professional and doesn’t let you away with anything during the coaching sessions.

— Life Coaching


I could never seem to get what I wanted done as there was never enough time. I was always busy, running around doing things that I thought were important. Through working with Joe, I now know the real meaning of time management and am doing what I want to do and don’t feel as stressed

— Time Management


I was very frustrated with work and couldn’t seem to enjoy my home life with kids as I was so stressed. I contacted Joe and we went through the wheel of life exercise. It’s amazing what you get out of seeing your life on paper and how happy you are with it.
