Do you want to be able to

Hello and Welcome

I'm Michelle
The Curious Coach

and I support women to achieve their career goals and optimise their wellbeing through building confidence and resilience.

I’m a confidence and wellbeing coach and a career mentor.

So why the Curious Coach? It’s simply that I have a deep interest in the art of the possible: what exists now, and what can be in the future.

As a coach, I love to stimulate good quality thinking and so I’d like to invite you to ask yourself if you can relate to any of the following?

Your inner critic holds you back from making a change in your career or personal life.

You suffer with “imposter syndrome” and worry you’ll be “found out" at any time.

You hold back from applying for your next job because you think there will be someone better than you.

You’ve realised you’re in the wrong job for you but don’t know how to get started on making the changes you need to make.

To others you look to be winning at life, but you know that isn't quite true.

You spend your life balancing relationships at home and work but spend little or no time on the relationship you have with yourself.

You allow your past to dictate your future.

You have a vision of the woman you want to be but need help to start the journey.

If you recognise yourself here, you’re not alone. As many as 90% of women in the UK have experienced imposter syndrome at some point in their life. Numerous articles identify that women often feel overwhelmed and that taking care of their wellbeing seems like one more “job” to get done. And if they do take the time, they often feel guilty afterwards.

 

How would you like to feel like this instead?

You have a plan for your goals and everyday you take steps to towards achieving them.

My practice is person-centred and rooted in positive psychology, with a particular focus on being intentionally curious about amplifying strengths and building resilience. My coaching approach is one of support and challenge, and is influenced by my professional training, evidence-based research, and my commitment to my own professional development. My coaching toolkit consists of a range of creative options which I will curate to suit the needs of each individual client: we’ll always begin with understanding your personal values and go from there to build your confidence and optimise your wellbeing.

Coaching with the Curious Coach

As your coach, I can help you to take a step back and look at the big picture of your life, your relationships and your career. Taking the time to really understand who you are and what you want means you can make a plan and take positive steps towards achieving your goals.

Mentoring

As your mentor I can offer practical advice, encouragement and support as you navigate your career path. By leaning into my 30 years’ experience in corporate business I can enable you to harness and leverage your potential to its best effect.

How can mentoring help you?

Book a call at a time to suit your schedule

I offer a complimentary 30-minute discovery call. This gives us the opportunity to speak together about what it is you’d like to work on, and for me to explain what I do and how I am able to help. If we’re both happy to work together we can go ahead and book your first session.
