Why choose us?

Professional coaching that gets results

The Career Psychologist is a team of expert applied psychologists who work with individuals and organisations to help transform careers.  There are five main reasons to work with us:

1. Expertise

We are fully trained applied psychologists specialising in careers.  This means we understand what actually works to help people build more fulfilling careers.

Of course many people claim to be experts, but our training helps us distinguish what really matters in transforming careers from what’s just noise.

Why does expertise matter in coaching?

2. Professionalism

All our psychologists are regulated by The British Psychological Society (or equivalent), ensuring the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.

In addition, we are committed to our own continuous professional development and are in regular supervision – essential elements for any elite coach.

3. Psychology

Psychology is about understanding human behaviour, so we focus on what may be going on at a deeper level that may be holding you back.

We are also pioneering the so-called ‘third wave’ of psychology within our practice. Overwhelming evidence shows the effectiveness of this approach, and we have integrated this into all of our services.

4. Experience

We speak from decades of experience of the ‘real’ world of work. All of us have:

  • made our own career change;
  • portfolio careers now and previous careers ranging from management consulting, retail and small business, banking, medicine and the civil service;
  • thousands of hours of coaching experience helping people to transform their careers.

Why does experience matter in coaching?

5. Values

We are in business to live our values. This means we will use our expertise to help you, challenging you where necessary; but we will act like compassionate human beings in the process.

    What Senator Maxine Waters Can Teach Us About Career Change

    You may have seen the video of US Senator Maxine Waters, staunchly and assertively repeating the phrase, ‘reclaiming my time…. reclaiming my time’.

    In US senate committees, each senator has a certain amount of time to ask questions. If the person they are interrogating, wastes that time, perhaps by talking about something irrelevant, then the senator can ‘reclaim’ the time, which is what Senator Waters did.

    Career Change is A Game of Inches

    Took my little daughter to the athletics, and we watched the mighty Usain Bolt in the 4 x 100m heats (though my daughter was far more interested in Hero the Hedgehog).  We then cheered the British team on to qualify, before – incredibly – they snatched gold in the final this evening, winning by 0.05 seconds.

    That’s half a second over 400 metres, shared between 4 people.  With such tiny margins I always think of this speech by Al Pacino in Any Given Sunday, which one of our brilliant clients first put me onto.
