Your Career Change Starts Here

Imagine a working life where you’re free to be you

I work with career changers to design and create inspiring futures. My job as a career coach is to help you get unstuck, build a clear and well-founded vision of the life and work you want, and create a plan to bring it to life.

Many of my clients don’t know where to start, some have no ideas, others have too many. Some don’t believe they can choose another direction, others are afraid of what friends or family will say or the upheaval another choice could cause. What they all have in common is a sense of dissatisfaction or restlessness at work – it’s not who they really are (even though they can do it well), it doesn’t fulfill them anymore, they feel trapped and drained of energy.

As your career-change coach I put you first, support you, challenge you, encourage you and give you a proven process to find a more fulfilling life.

We work face to face in the same location or by Skype – both work! You’ll have homework to do, reflections to complete and actions to take – and with this full investment in yourself and in the process, you’ll be moving in the direction you really want.

Scroll down to see how we can work together on your career change, to understand what matters most to you and how you can gain clarity and move forward with confidence in planning a working life that fits you like a glove.

Becky first helped me understand that what I was feeling was not unusual, and was in fact positive because it signified positive change was coming. Next, she gave me a structure and tools to work through my thoughts and feelings in a way that gave me the confidence that I was on the right path. And these tools most importantly helped me to muster the strength to take action.
I highly recommend working with Becky.
— Chris B, Tourism Entrepreneur
Becky is superb. She has a natural ability to build a trusting relationship quickly, which helped me feel at ease. She built my confidence, listened and guided - all attributes you would want from a coach. Thank you so much Becky - I feel honoured to have worked with you.

Quickstep Career Change Programme

My innovative career change programme provides you with one to one coaching through the proven Firework career change process, designed to help you connect with what you want from your life and work, and to create a practical path towards it.

The Quickstep Career Change Programme is designed to get your career change moving. From Clarity to Direction to Action, you can move at your own pace through each of the 2-session stages.

CLARITY: This is all about YOU. We'll explore your strengths, values, achievements, purpose and what your Ideal Life and Ideal Working Day look like.

DIRECTION: You'll generate a wide range of career ideas to explore against your CLARITY findings and start testing out your 3 top options. This is where you can let your imagination fly.

ACTION: You'll work on your top idea and create a career-change plan that is both ambitious and practical, and that moves you towards career fulfilment and a future that truly excites you.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have a compelling plan to move into a new direction – one that fulfills your values, strengths and passions. Your future will inspire you!

I loved the Quickstep process and the build up and progression it gave me. There was so much great information, templates and exercises provided, making it great value for money.
— Liz McG, W Sussex
Before the Quickstep Career Change Programme I felt confused, scared and overwhelmed about my future. Now I have clarity about my values and strengths and I’m ready to build a career in digital marketing for a cause that I believe in.
— Alice M, University of Exeter student
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the most amazing career coach, for opening up my mind to looking at life and career as a whole, and for showing me how to start aligning my ambitions and goals to my values in life. I couldn’t be happier to be starting this exciting new role and I am so grateful for your inspiration and so glad I signed up to The Quickstep Career Change programme. Best decision I have made in years!
— Silvia Paloschi, Exeter, Devon

Starting again?

When you're making a new start but you're too busy, overwhelmed and exhausted to notice, you need to take time to pause.

INSPIRED -Starting Again with Confidence is an online programme and self-guided retreat offering you the space, time and focus to honour this significant transition and prepare you to fully embrace the next season in your life.

Wherever you choose to celebrate this occasion, you will have everything you need to reflect, envision and claim your future. You'll be able to end one season well and clear the way for the next. You’ll leave feeling refreshed, clear-sighted and empowered, ready to create the change you've been craving.

I recently completed Becky’s course ‘INSPIRED - Starting Again With Confidence’ following my relocation to Shaldon in South Devon. It allowed me to take stock of my move and to celebrate all that I had achieved to make it happen.
Becky’s course is perfect for anyone who is in a period of transition. As humans we tend to sometimes gloss over our wins and move on to the next thing which needs doing - however this course allowed me to pause and reflect.
— Jennifer Corcoran, CEO & Founder My Super Connector
INSPIRED is such a well thought out, soulful course. Career transitions are so often overlooked. Before the course I did not see any distinction between my old role and my new career path. This was detrimental to my new business. Now I have a fresh start and can leave behind all that no longer serves me.

Career Clarity Calls

If you'd like a focused career consultation to rejuvenate your career-change or explore ideas that you just can't make progress with, a Career Clarity Call will help you clear your thoughts, identify what you really want, what's keeping you stuck, and what your next steps are!

When you're not looking for a full career change programme but know that you need an impartial, friendly but informed career coach to help you get clear, get focused and back into action, a Career Clarity Call will hit the spot. Whether preparing for that key interview or exploring the best strategy and tactics to make your inspiring future a reality, an experienced career change coach will make all the difference. Ready for clarity?

I found it really useful to talk through my dreams and values with someone who is both outside the problem and who is non-judgemental. Clarity often comes from listening to yourself more clearly and that echoing back technique is something you’ve got down to a T’
— Rachel C, Rail Engineer, UK
Talking to Becky at a time when I felt ‘all over the place and turning in circles’ I came out of this very enjoyable conversation feeling much lighter and re-energized. One of few people that truly listen Becky genuinely valued my ideas. In her non-directive yet very systematic and grounded approach she helped me in prioritizing my next steps, allowing for my passions to come first which in turn gives me energy to tackle the inevitable challenges, fears and setbacks. I can highly recommend Becky, especially from the beginning or even before we even consider a career change, simply to have a space to explore ideas and yet come out with a firm plan. Slowly, I am telling others about my new focus in my career and it is finding resoundingly support. Now I only wish I had talked to Becky sooner.

Values Discovery

Values are the key to understanding what fulfills and motivates you – what’s important to you and what you need in your life and work. If your highest values are out of line with your work or not present enough in your life as a whole, you’ll feel dissatisfied, restless or unhappy – and you probably won’t know why.

In the 2-step Values Discovery package you’ll get clear on your top values, understand how fulfilled they are in your current life, and know how to strengthen and use them to make better decisions for the life and career you want. Through one-to-one coaching and mini-tasks between sessions, you’ll gain values clarity and the key to a life that is true to who you are – a life with work that lets you thrive.
