Holistc Process

This programme is a holistic and in-depth process based on the established  Firework Career Coaching Method. It offers plenty of opportunity for self-exploration as well as actionable, practical steps that take you from your present situation to your career of choice.​ Recommended if you want a fresh start for your life and career. If you have some time to explore your next steps and would like some handholding and support along the way, this is for you.

The Programme at a Glance



Stage 1 will give you a deep understanding of who you are as a person and what you want from your work and life as a whole. We'll identify your personal priorities and your family’s real needs and get clear on your motivations, strengths and skills and what purposeful work means to you. This stage is packed with a mix of action and reflection. Your confidence will grow, and you’ll start generating exciting new possibilities.



In Stage 2, we draw on the insights from Stage 1 and look at your career options in creative ways. We’ll then sharpen the focus and find your top 3 career themes that excite you most and align with your life and work style preferences.



Stage 3 is where you’ll get to test-drive your choices. You might do some “market research”, network with people in your desired field or try something out first-hand. This will give you a real feel about how your choices energise you, fit your skills and talents, and provide a sustainable income.



In this stage, we will finetune your vision and formulate a plan of action to get you from your current reality to where you want to be. Together, we’ll identify the best way forward and address possible gaps. You’ll tap into your network and find allies who will create bridges to opportunities. Soon, you'll be ready and able to land flexible, enjoyable, and meaningful work.



Stage 5 is an option for clients who would like that extra bit of support when implementing their action plan. This could be defining job search strategies, help with applications, preparing for job interviews, negotiating contracts. Some clients enjoy simply having a sounding board and an accountability partner during this phase. These sessions can be bought in add-on bundles and be spaced out if preferred.

 How It Works

We'll start by talking. You'll schedule your initial free, 30-minute no-commitment Discovery Call where we'll look at where you are now, where you are headed and what your hopes and aspirations are. We also address any questions, challenges or concerns you might have. You'll walk away with more clarity and your next step, and we'll both find out whether we are a good match.


Following the Discovery Call, I’ll invite you to my shared online workspace. You’ll get a little tour of the platform and receive your first assignment in preparation for the Foundation session.

Our first session is a 2-hour Foundation Session, where we will set the scene for our work together. It might be the first time in a while that you took a step back and focused just on yourself, so we will celebrate this new step, debrief your first assignment and draw up a roadmap towards your goals. We will also discuss how we best work together and how you can make the most of the process. Wherever possible I will hold this session in person, just because it's nice to get to know each other in "real life": ).

Subsequently, we’ll have weekly or bi-weekly 1-hour sessions either online or in person. In these focussed conversations, we work together towards your outcomes. Looking at who you are on a deep level, you can count on me to be compassionate and straight-talking. I will encourage you, stretch you and reflect back on your brilliance and uniqueness.

A lot of the learning and action will take place between sessions. I usually give some home assignments, such as a worksheet, an activity, or a reflective task.

Throughout the process, I’ll support you via my shared workspace which provides the focus and accountability you need to move towards your dream job. You can create, organise and track actions, worksheets and vision boards. You can also send me updates and questions, and I will reply with reflections, ideas and answers.

Ready to Dive In? 

Before meeting with you, I was at a pretty low point, faced with redundancy, and worried that I wouldn't be able to find a job that would be meaningful ever again. I felt aimless and confused about what comes next.


In the job search that followed, your advice and support were just invaluable - through one of the exercises that we went through I discovered the field that I wanted to move into. Having your encouragement helped me stick it out and not to let the worries get the better of me. We spent a lot of time really focusing on what is important to me as a person and professionally, which really paid off. I loved how you pulled me back from applying for jobs that weren't what I wanted. In addition, talking through what was blocking me in my job search you really helped remove a lot of self-imposed obstacles. My perfectionism for example or certain pressures that were more imagined than real.


Working with you brought home that I do have all these transferrable skills. I feel much calmer and more confident. It also, oddly, meant that I made peace with my past job. I don't think I could have done this search without a person in my corner, encouraging me to rest when I needed it, and cheering me on, especially before interviews. Your encouragement to think about how my job should fit in with my family life and children also meant that I had the confidence to negotiate flexible and hybrid working, which makes my life a lot easier.


I couldn't have asked for a better outcome: it took persistence and some time, but I am now working in the field I discovered, which does turn out to be an amazing fit for me. I have more opportunities for career progression and better benefits, there is more collaboration and emphasis on wellbeing at work than in my previous job - the job that I thought was the end of the world to lose when we first started working together."
