I had a series of career coaching sessions with Natalie at a time when I was in a career rut: feeling bored and under-utilised in my current role with an ever increasing sense of self-doubt and low self-confidence. I knew I had more to offer, wanted to offer more, but didn’t know how to articulate my strengths, or what sort of role might suit me. I didn’t know where to start! Natalie has a unique blend of a gentle and empathetic but firm coaching style which enabled her to challenge me to find new perspectives. Natalie listens closely and makes pertinent and helpful observations that helped me to see that being under-utilised in a role is not the same as under-performing. That was the beginning of the transformation! Over a few months we worked on my confidence and explored what I really respond to in a job role. Soon after I secured a new role where I am challenged and definitely playing to my strengths and preferences. I don’t think I would have got there had it not been for Natalie’s support, encouragement and coaching.
