You’re here because you feel stuck in life or at work and you want clarity on what to do next.
You may be burnt out, bored, frustrated, unfulfilled, or just ready for a new challenge. 

And you’re wondering whether coaching may help with that. 

Well, let me tell it to you straight...

Is coaching the answer for you?

coaching might not be the answer.

I know, what kind of coach says that on their homepage?!
But I want to be honest with you.

The answer may be therapy. 
Or an honest conversation with that someone. 
Or something else. 

So let’s start with finding out what you really need.

Start with The Life & Career Audit power hour.

When we've been in our own head for a while, we can lose sight of what's going good in our lives (and is nothing to worry about) and what does need our attention. 

The Life & Career Audit helps you take a step back and look at your life as a whole. Noticing what gives you energy and what drains you. You'll also get a report of next steps and resources that may help.

It works in 4 simple steps:

If coaching is the right fit for you, 
I would be honoured to be your coach. 

So let me introduce myself...

here's my story

I am no stranger to feeling stuck. I was stuck in jobs I didn't love for years. 

I thought:

  • doing a different job role would help (it didn't)
  • changing industries would do something (nope)
  • going travelling would give me insight (fun, but no clarity there)

Nothing helped me get unstuck because I was changing the external world instead of working on my internal world. 
When I started doing the inner work EVERYTHING CHANGED. 
Here's what happened...

I'm Dina. 
Your straight-talking coach.

Hey there!

Yes, please.

Don't want group or 1:1 coaching, but want to follow a proven framework to get clear on what next in your career? No problem.
The Career Clarity program is also available in a self-study version. You will have 6 modules to work through in your own time. And you have the option of booking a one-off consolidating coaching session when you finish. 

Online course

Sounds like fun!

The Career Clarity group program runs twice a year (Feb & Sep) and is an excellent way to get clear on which way you want to grow and go in your career. Not only do you learn about yourself, but you learn from and get cheered on from a small group of fellow career changers. All supported by weekly group coaching calls.

It's not just about solving the immediate problem, it's SO much more. Here are some lesser-known benefits of coaching.

What people don't realise about coaching

Life skill training

You know the phrase “give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime?”
Well, that’s basically coaching.
Coaching doesn’t just help you solve your CURRENT problem, it teaches you the skills you need to solve FUTURE problems. 
Skills like decision-making, beating imposter syndrome, confidence building, having challenging conversations, negotiating, overcoming fear of failure and more. 
All of these skills will armour you up to be able to navigate all sorts of situations life will throw at you. 

Coaching raises your awareness. 

Tangibly this could look like becoming aware of all your skills and strengths, which then leads to greater confidence which leads to you applying for more senior positions, raising your prices or feeling good about entering a totally new industry. 

Greater awareness could also lead to you realising that what you thought was the problem isn’t actually the problem. 
EXAMPLE: Sometimes the problem isn’t that you procrastinate, it’s that you’re not excited about the work you’re doing. So the solution is to either change what you’re doing or reignite your passion by connecting to the bigger picture.

Coaching was one of those things that I didn't know I needed until I actually did it. I'm very glad I did because it's been amazing and I think all creatives should try it.

This is the third time I've done a coaching program with Dina and each time I grow in ways I didn't anticipate.
