Why choose us?

Professional 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.

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.

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.

    We Are All Paul McCartney

    I recently went to go and see Paul McCartney play live – actually twice – in Winnipeg and London’s O2 arena.  All the old hits were there including Hey Jude, Lady Madonna, Yesterday, All My Loving, Eleanor Rigby, Blackbird, Band on the Run and Let it Be.

    Imagine writing all these songs before you hit 30…

    Mary Oliver and Career Change

    There comes a time in any career change where analysis stops working.  All the risks have been managed.  Contingency plans have been made.  Worst case finances have been modelled in Excel. A 62-slide Powerpoint deck is available on request.

    It’s at this point where art takes over.  There were several notable examples of this in my career change: Derek Walcott, Al Pacino, Ernest Hemingway, reading the obituaries or even the Honda ad, which taught me that even bald men can sometimes be courageous.
