This is an area I have a lot of experience with, both personally, as a colleague, as a friend and as a coach.
- Have you reached a point in your life where you know you need a change but are not sure what to do about it?
- Unhappy in your job but not sure how to make the changes you know you want to make?
- Do you feel you just don’t fit any more?
- Is it time to move on?
- Do you feel overwhelmed by it all?
- Do you feel that too much is changing and you don’t want to be part of it?
- Do you feel that you want to do something different but lack the courage and knowledge to effect the change?
- Have you always had a dream that is still unfulfilled?
As your coach I can help in all these areas. I am very perceptive and experienced in all these areas. I will take you through all the steps needed to help you to get on track for the life you really want to be living. The negative feelings and fear about it all will be a thing of the past. I will help you plan realistically for your future.
Now my bit. I was a very happily employed triage nurse with my ‘perfect job’. My employer then lost the contract for our work and we were transferred to the company that ‘won’ it. The workforce that covered all areas of our work, was divided and given to different employers. This was manageable and our work remained much the same, just had lost the diversity of services we offered from one geographical location, it meant we had to phone other areas for the services we had had in one big room. The next step was when this company failed in their bid for the pilot of NHS111 and we were tupe’d again to the company that had won it. From my point of view it was downhill from then on. As it was for 8 of my nurse colleagues. Within 6 months of this transfer we had all resigned and moved onto different jobs. We were divided and demoralised, made to work at a different venue, work different hours, I went from 15 hours a week to full time and a 3 hour commute each day and lots of exams to become proficient in our new role, I enjoyed all the learning and passed all the exams easily. Our terms and conditions were radically changed and our pay was cut by a considerable amount. We all passed the exams and jumped through successive hoops but each one was a step too far away from a job that we had loved and been very good at. Some of my colleagues took legal action; but by this time I was suffering from a major depression, my close friend was dying and I had other family needing a lot of care. When talking to a colleague one day I discovered that I could take early retirement this proved to be a way for me to move towards a more balanced creatively satisfying lifestyle. I was already a qualified coach and this became my way forward; sooner than I had anticipated. Since then I have had a much more enjoyable lifestyle.
One of my core values is helping people, being useful is really important to me. If I can help someone move forward to where they are more fulfilled and happy then I am happy too. 🙂
