Hello, I’m Denise.
I believe in the power of dreaming big impossible dreams.
After talking to many people about their career goals, I know there’s a good reason why you’re drawn to do a specific type of work.
You already know there’s a strong link between what’s calling your name and how you can best serve the world, whether it’s teaching young adults, starting a not for profit or baking the best chocolate brownies on the planet.
The trouble is, with the best of intentions, we sometimes make different choices perhaps to make others happy or for the sake of our bank balance.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for practicality but not at the expense of shutting down the dream.
I believe there’s always a way if you have the determination and the will to make it happen, and of course the right support.
That’s where I come in.
I help you dream big and figure out how to make it happen. I won’t tell you that you have to choose between money and your dream.
Nor will I tell you that if you follow your dream the money will magically appear (not surprisingly there’s more to it than that).
But I will help you to see the possibilities and figure out how to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.
How to work with me
My 4 week Coaching Intensive is for job seekers who want to get clear about their goal, and work with me to make it happen quickly and with more ease.
I also help people to talk about what they do with more clarity and successfully market their skills and experiences to potential employers.
Want to book me for a one-off 90 Minute Breakthrough Consultation to get clarity and strategise your next move?
We can do that too. Simply book here or email me with the subject line 90 Minute Breakthrough.
As well as my services I also dish out advice each month on the blog and answer your career and money related questions. I also do monthly Tarot readings to guide your career decisions (did I mention I love Tarot?).
Why work with me?
I’ve helped hundreds of professionals to make their next move including getting promoted, relocating to a different city or restarting careers in different industries as well as finally getting a job that makes them happy.
I’m warm, practical and holistic in my approach. I support my clients to create a plan and I also help you to get out of your own way and take the right kinds of action (usually that doesn’t involve sending your resume into the black hole of online job search).
In addition to my experience I have postgraduate qualifications in Career Development and Coaching and I’m a professional member of the Career Development Association of Australia. I truly love my work and I’m 100 per cent there for my clients.
Before becoming a career coach, I worked as a journalist, a copywriter and before that as an executive assistant in the corporate world. As well as running my own business, I’ve had my fair share of challenges and I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to create the kind of career you’ll be proud of when you’re 80. I want to help you achieve this (I know you can).
Other facts & snippets about me…
Originally from Ireland (still have my accent), I live in Melbourne where I’m the proud single mama of a 5 year old boy.
I’m on a mission to help women do great work, make a powerful contribution to the world and earn more money while they’re at it.
And I’m also a passionate advocate of living with less and have seriously overhauled my life in recent years to align with these values (not easy with all the toys in the house but you can follow my adventures on Instagram). I also support various charities including Good Shepherd Australia and Compassion Australia.
