Career Confidence

  • Stuck in your career?
  • Angling for promotion?
  • Looking for a job?

If you have been made redundant, are struggling with issues that are holding you back, or your career is just not progressing as you wish, I can help.

Career coaching does not go over old ground, focus on the past, or force-feed you with information. The approach assumes that you already have solutions, strategies, and a proven methodology for success within you.

We work together to help you find the answers for yourself, in a fun and effective way.


Career development

Themes include:

  • Boosting your self-confidence
  • Practical advice on your situation
  • How to make to most of LinkedIn
  • Creating a stellar CV or résumé
  • Interview success tips

With a positivity boost and practical career coaching, you will gain the knowledge and skill to move forward in your business and personal life.

  1. Q. Who should attend? 
    A. My career coaching is for anyone with the ambition to push their career forward, and the willingness to do whatever it takes.
  2. Q. Why should we choose you? 
    A. Because I have a substantial track record in career coaching. I genuinely care about your success, and promise you’ll have fun while we work together towards your shining future.

I had to go through a major organisational restructure where I had to fight to retain my position which I held for the last eight years. Whilst confident in many aspects of my life, my Achilles heel is interviews, having had several negative experiences in the past. This one was the biggest I had to face. Eilidh helped me reflect on my strengths and gave me some wonderful tips, from presentation to relaxation. She helped me to believe in me again, and helped me to see that the whole process could be FUN if you were in the right mode and could engage your audience. I did and now I have been offered the No 1 job in the restructure that I wanted!

Eilidh provided me with excellent positivity coaching. From the first time we met, Eilidh always left me feeling full of optimism and ready to embrace the world. I often find myself thinking "what would Eilidh do in this instance?" and reciting "Eilidhism's"! Thank you, Eilidh, for putting me on the right path.
