My name is Jane, I'm a professional Life Coach and qualified NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner and I coach creatives.
Up until 2010 I had spent 16 years working in the fashion industry. My work took me across Europe where I lived in Amsterdam, Italy and Antwerp working for some great companies on a global level.
Early in my career I was introduced to Life Coaching and NLP and I was hooked. I would always have a book to hand and attend courses whenever possible to keep my mind fresh. Back then I was loving the world of denim and it didn’t feel the right time to commit to building my Life Coaching practice. So I would practice on myself and use what I had learnt day to day in my personal and work life.
Then in 2010 I was made redundant, luckily for me it could not have come at a better time, I was at the point where I wanted to do something different. I wanted to work with people, not manage them. I didn’t want to be looking at how many pairs of jeans had sold I wanted to get results in a different way. So I moved back to the UK took a part time job in a high street chemist (I love chemists) and returned to study Life Coaching.
After I was made redundant I noticed how work conversations with people suddenly changed. People would talk to me about what they would really love to do career wise or what promotion they wanted. I realized there were a lot of people going to work that would rather be doing something else. After going through the whole experience of career change myself I knew this was my coaching niche, Career Coaching. One year on, I'm qualified and absolutely loving it.
I believe since the economy has all gone a bit mad; one thing you can be sure of is yourself. I believe it’s the best time to follow your dreams and do what you really want to do. I also believe if you want to do something you can do it; you just need to commit to it.
I worked in a creative business environment for sixteen years; it’s what I know best. I loved it all, the drive, the ideas the passion and the odd bit of madness it was great.
I'm inspired by many of my friends and colleagues that have set up their own business and are really successful doing what they love. I'm also inspired by my clients who have taken a step back to look at their life and see what they want to change to be more fulfilled and successful in both their career and personal life. I love being part of that and moving people forward to achieve their goals.
Now that I've explained myself, I’d love to hear from you about how we can work together.
