Welcome to SendThemSoaring

Are you feeling stuck with the next step in your amazing life? Thinking about new work options? Love your current job but overwhelmed with things to do? Or just unsettled and you aren’t sure why? Somehow just never get time to stop and think?

I have felt like this many times myself and have lost count of how many times I have heard friends and colleagues use these words. As your coach, I will provide you with the time to think about your challenges and dreams, a safe space to try out ideas and confront any unhelpful assumptions you have about your future, and my undivided attention to help focus your thinking.

Although I am happy to talk to anyone about whether coaching is right for them, I specialise in:

  • Helping academics, researchers and teachers grow in their role, plan their careers and manage the deluge of demands on their time (including from outside work).
  • Helping people thinking about career change find their next steps to happiness and success.
  • Helping women scientists, engineers and leaders find success in environments traditionally dominated by men

The Blog describes some typical types of coaching and common topics, but anything is possible! You can find key information and FAQs here. From a one-off session to a programme over a few months or longer, whatever suits you.  Are you ready to soar?
