Over twenty years I have coached people on finding new jobs, working on their resumes, helping with their networking strategy and practicing interviewing. I know that successful career change and job hunting is about using both your head and your heart. It is not only using your head to research an employer it is also using your heart to attract the right employer. With my clients I use a wholistic approach to career change.
“After meeting with you, I can now say today, no matter what I do for work or how I earn money to live. I proudly can say that I am an Artist and an Educator. That is what I believe in and what makes my heart sing. I am feeling more grounded in who I truly am. So I am on this journey.”

“David offered both advice and encouragement, helping me to understand and adjust to the new context. I have no doubt that his support was vital to my success on that occasion. Without it, would have lacked the confidence required to carry on with what was a very daunting environment.”

I got my very first job even though I broke the cardinal rule of being on time to an interview by showing up two hours late. A coaching client who wanted a job in the entertainment industry and who had no experience ended up working successfully for Disney with virtually no networking. And a woman I worked with, who should be mega, and who had masses of industry knowledge, a multitude of contacts and an MBA ended up with a temp job making minimum wage. Why were some people breaking the career rules and winning and why were even more following them and not getting their perfect job or even any job? So why were our common beliefs about finding a job being turned upside down? What was going on? As I began to study more, and as I studied Spiritual Psychology, I saw how we had the power to create great job situations or blow them. We could work on a perfect resume only to be rejected or send in one with typos and still get the job. I began to realize as I worked with my clients that who they were and their own psyche was critical to getting the right career. And I also saw that I could help to break through their blocks, reduce issues and heal old wounds so that they could get the job of their dreams. I saw that there is an old way of getting a job and a new way. More simply it was not only the outside – resumes etc. – that mattered but also the inside – what was your intention, what were you attracting, what were the voices in your head telling you! This is what I believe and this is how I help my clients be fulfilled in every way.
