When I started working with Kim, I’d just left a senior role. I was proud of my achievements at work, but the organisation had been a bad fit for me. I felt like I’d had to tie myself in knots trying to fit in with a culture that didn’t align with my values or ethos. In doing that, I’d lost all sense of who I was and what I wanted from my career. The experience at work had left me feeling exhausted, unvalued and in an almost constant state of anxiety. My confidence was on the floor and I felt lost. I had a new role but no belief in my ability to do the job. I wasn’t even sure it was the right job for me. I had no idea how to build a career and life that made me happy.
Kim was recommended to me by a friend and, after an initial meeting, I quickly decided to invest in coaching. Each session was tailored to help me solve the problems that were on my mind at the time, whilst also supporting me to think about my long-term future. Over the course of six sessions, we explored my values, motivations and the difference I want to make in the world. We also discussed tricky issues I was experiencing at work and talked through solutions. Through Kim’s challenging but gentle questioning, I gradually rediscovered myself, found my lost confidence and made exciting plans for the future. I feel reenergised and motivated to keep building a future that works for me and meets my needs. I’m getting better at quietening the voices in my head that tell me I’m not good enough. I’m excited to create a career that makes the most of my skills and abilities, and which aligns with my values.
I viewed the cost of coaching as a much-needed investment in me, to help me transition from an unhappy place where the future felt uncertain and confusing to a space where I feel confident and proud of who I am. I’m delighted I took the leap. I know Kim can help others go on a similar journey. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

“I cannot recommend Kim highly enough. I have just finished my 6 sessions on the Brilliant Transitions coaching programme with Kim, after reaching the point in my life/career where I didn’t know why, but nothing made sense anymore. Kim is kind, and rigorous, she asked the right questions at the right time to help me come to terms with all the changes that had happened both to me and in me and to understand where I had come from, where I am now and what I might do in the future. I gained so many insights through our sessions, as well as my sense of purpose. Invaluable”
