Why choose us?

Professional training and coaching that gets results

The Career Psychologist is a collaboration of like-minded, expert applied psychologists and coaches 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 and coaches 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 professional body), 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.

Why does professionalism matter in coaching?

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 and we are a network rather than a business, so you get our expertise at an affordable price.

    This is from a CEO who’s been using it with his organisation:

    Your Covid Marginal Gains booklet has been a great source to help me during this once in a life time roller coaster. It deals with so many layers that we are all going through and gave me confidence in what I was telling my team, give me solace in what I was feeling, and hope for what despair we all go through.

    A Guide to Lockdown for Other Parents, from a True Parenting Expert

    Anyone who knows me or my children will know that I am both a relationship and parenting expert.

    For example, before I proposed to my wife I romantically listed all of my imperfections (which took a while), and only this morning I dealt with my two-year old’s tantrum by swearing at the top of my voice and then storming out of the room.  I’m available for paid consultancy.
