How does it work?
Is your organisation willing to invest? Once we agree to get started and have the paperwork in place, you introduce me by email to the individuals you want to offer my coaching to. From that point, you don’t need to be involved. I email the individual directly, outline my coaching and prompt them to think about the focus area they would feel is most beneficial to them. This way, we can make progress together from the start of the first call. No faffing. We want to get results fast!

- Agreed number of 60 min Zoom calls (usually 3 per participant)

For example, their coach will not only help them to clarify their future goals but they also help them to reach them by identifying transferable skills, pinpointing what motivates them , discovering their strengths and weaknesses and helping them to maintain a positive mindset in a period of change.
Armed with the skills, knowledge and expertise needed to support their redundancy journey, a redundancy coach can also help them with practicalities such as writing a winning CV, crafting cover letters and preparing for those all important job interviews.

It’s all about finding the positives during challenging times and understanding that redundancy is not the end of their career journey, as there are always lots of exciting career options to explore and discover.

“Gemma is an amazing coach. She helped me a last year whilst I was addressing my own redundancy and worked with me to ensure I was in the best mindset to start my new role.
I have recently engaged with her again to support others that I’ve unfortunately had to make redundant- I wanted to ensure that they had access to the support and confidential coaching that I myself had benefited from. I’ve also recommended Gemma to others in my HR network, who have also engaged with her for themselves and their wider teams and they love her work.
She is a great listener, supportive and encouraging, and easy to work with. And she gets results. I would highly recommend working with Gemma.”
“Gemma’s coaching has been of huge value to me. I was genuinely surprised by how much progress we made in only three 60 minute sessions over the phone.
She successfully guided me through a very challenging period of change at work, striking the perfect balance between being supportive and yet challenging. She helped me to focus on practical actions to take after each session.
