Career Transformation is for you if:
- You have a successful corporate career, have climbed the career ladder, and find yourself in a relatively senior position (e.g. Director level at a Professional Services firm), largely by accident rather than because you had a structured career plan or goal.
- You have lost your spark.
- You are increasingly questioning whether this is how you want to spend your life.
- You wonder whether you should be directing your considerable skills and talents to a more meaningful and purposeful endeavour.
- You are very aware that life is short, time is ticking, and you don’t want to waste that time.
- You feel trapped in your current role because you don’t have a clear idea of what you would do instead.
- You are aware of the privileged position you are in and question whether you should be rocking the boat.
- You want your next step to be intentional. You are willing to do ‘the work’ to help you uncover what that next step should be, however, you have no idea what ‘the work’ entails.
You are ready for change.
What Do You Want?
For possibly the first time ever, you are ready to focus on what YOU want. Not what other people want from you, not what you think you should want but what YOU actually want.
You are ready to invest time, energy and attention in yourself, rather than putting other people’s needs in front of your own.
You are ready to do the deep work required to develop your self-awareness and get to know the real you. Not the one doing what they think they ‘should’ do or worse, what other people think they ‘should’ do.
You want to take time and space to consider your next move and ensure your next step is intentional and will make you happy. However, you don’t want to have so much time and space that you never make a decision and take action.
You want to get over the (often self imposed) obstacles that are stopping you from taking action and loving the work that you do.
You want to be reminded that even if your current role is ‘fine’, you want more than fine.
You want to feel inspired, passionate, and motivated about your work.
How Does the Programme Work?
Over the course of six to 12 months (you choose the speed at which you want to go) we will work together to review where you are now, create a vision of the life and career that makes you feel excited and will allow you to fulfil your potential and I will support you to bring that vision to life.
For some people, this will mean a change of role or perhaps even a change of career. That is why the Programme takes a minimum of six months. This type of change takes time to prepare for and also to execute. You will have my unwavering support throughout this process.
For others, it will be about doubling down on your current role/career but approaching it in a COMPLETELY different way. You won’t be staying in that role because you don’t know what else you could do, you will be intentional and stay because you know it is the right place for you to build a meaningful career.
What Can You Expect?
By the end of our time together, you will feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders.
You will be better able to focus at work without the distraction of the underlying niggle that you should be doing something different.
You will be better able to enjoy your time outside of work, relieved in the knowledge that you are using your skills and talents in a way that aligns with who you want to be and allows you to make a positive impact in the world.
You will be confident that you will look back on the latter part of your career with no regrets and be proud of the contribution you made and what you have achieved. Finally, you can be the role model you want to be for your children, younger family members and colleagues.

About Nicola Semple
I am an exceptional and experienced Career and Confidence Coach and an ex-Business Change Consultant with a Big 4 background. My favourite snippets of client feedback are “infectiously driven and straightforward”, “kind, insightful but doesn’t let me off the hook” and “we covered some tough topics, but I always left our sessions with energy, and a sense that I had fun!”
If you are looking for a Coach who will have you out of bed at 4.30 am undertaking a gruelling morning routine to set you up for #success and #smashyourgoals, you won’t want to work with me.
If you are looking for a Coach who will ask open questions and allow you to go around in circles reflecting for hours on end (but getting nowhere), you won’t want to work with me either.
If you are looking for somebody to help you unravel the spaghetti in your head, help you get clear on what you want from your career and life, and support you so that you do the work to get it, we should talk!
What My Clients Say About Working With Me:
“I was looking to move from my current job into a role that, although in the same sector, required a different perspective and way of working and offered real opportunities for promotion. Having spent so long in my current role I doubted my ability to meet the requirements of the new role and I needed to boost my confidence if I wanted to succeed in progressing upwards. Although I had the advice of family and friends, it wasn’t enough and I hoped that seeking the support, skills and insight of a professional coach would enable me to develop the right mindset and ditch the imposter syndrome.
With Nicola’s help I worked through the limiting beliefs I had that were holding me back from taking the next step. She helped me clarify what was lacking in my current role and what the priorities were for any new role. She helped me better understand my strengths and weaknesses and together we developed strategies for dealing with my ‘confidence demons’. During my time working with Nicola I interviewed for and accepted a new role at a different company and she helped me prepare both practically and mentally for the new challenges that I will face. Thanks to Nicola I am entering this next phase with a new confidence I didn’t have before and an arsenal of tools and strategies to help me deal with the inevitable wobbles in my self-belief when they crop up in future.
I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough. Coaching sessions are an investment in your career in the same way that any technical qualification would be. So often it is mindset that holds us back from achieving the career we want and working with Nicola helped me develop the mindset I needed to make the leap into a new and different role.”
“I knew that I wanted something to change but I wasn’t sure what. I felt as though wasn’t doing a good job in any aspect of life. When I was working I felt like I wasn’t a good enough mum but when I was taking time with the kids I felt like I wasn’t giving work enough attention. I was also struggling to let go of the business that I had been running for 8 years. I am amazed at how quickly I was able to feel much more in control of my emotions and have a greater sense of clarity and perspective about returning to the corporate world after running my business for so long. The work you do makes a difference to people’s lives in such a positive way. Thank you!!”
“I was stuck in a cycle where I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted but I knew that I had more to give than I was currently doing in my role. I wanted an outsider’s perspective and help from someone with the ability to do so. As a result of working with Nicola, I gained the courage to believe in myself more, identified my values and was able to paint a clear vision of what a successful career meant to me. I also became bold ao network and put myself out more. Whether it be coincidence or serendipity, a role came up in the period I was going through the coaching which I accepted.
I would highly encourage anyone who is thinking of working with Nicola to not give it a second thought. She is empathetic and a great listener but more importantly she has a gift, for want of a better word, for getting you to bring up those questions you have probably been ruminating about and answer them yourself while guiding you towards making a decision.
She was there to listen when I had questions, providing guidance while helping me trust myself.!”
