About Me

“The big news is that as of yesterday I have formally accepted a job offer! I am so delighted and wanted to thank you again for your guidance and support throughout my career change. It has been invaluable and it’s all coming together. I felt really confident going into the interview knowing what I wanted and what I was good at. I regularly think back to our sessions and look at the materials we collated together.” Heather, 10.05.21

She has provided me with much-needed direction, support and guidance at a time when I was feeling deflated with my career and lacking in motivation which was impacting my well-being and family life. She quickly identified that we needed to focus on strategies to overcome moments of self-doubt and to improve and maintain my well-being in order to help achieve my goal of changing career direction. I cannot thank Tessa enough and I would recommend her whole-heartedly.” Victoria 27.05.21
