"Her incisive, supportive but challenging approach proved essential in regaining lost perspective, bring me back in touch with myself and exploring opportunities that excite me."
I was in a dark place doing my best in a very demanding senior corporate role that seemed to use up every ounce of energy I had, but that I wasn’t enjoying nearly enough for the effort going in. Despite my successes, I knew I needed a new challenge in a different environment but the relentless pressures and frustrations sapped my efforts to break the circle. In the maelstrom I struggled to see viable alternatives and just knuckling down to your job is always the accepted norm in society.
What started off as a discussion with Jessica surrounding career change soon turned into a thorough review of who I am, what makes me tick, my skills, values and passions and ultimately, what I really wanted out of life itself. Her incisive, supportive but challenging approach proved essential in regaining lost perspective, bring me back in touch with myself and exploring opportunities that excite me. I would have been the last person to have predicted the revolution that has taken place, that I would finish my well paid job, embark on an epic bike journey across New Zealand and return refreshed with broad horizons, determined to live my life as I want to live it.
Without Jessica, I would never have allowed myself to take that crucial step back and consider my options fully, let alone to have the courage of my convictions. I am extremely grateful to her for helping me to find a new direction in life that is true to myself, not just in my work, and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is in that dark place or unsure in which direction to turn. Be warned though, you certainly won’t get an easy ride but the more you put in, the more you’ll get out!A.A Director of Sales, UK
