​Are you wondering ?

What or where you would like to study after you finish school?

Are you not sure what career would be the one for you?

Stuck between what you want and what others see as suitable for you?

Have you started in one direction but don’t feel it’s right anymore?

These are the things that can help:

  • Knowing yourself better – identify your talents, values, strengths, skills and more. What kind of personality do you have ? What is important for you ? What you love and what you loathe!

  • Knowing how you learn - What are your favourite subjects and interests ? What is it you like about them ? What do find easy, what do you struggle with ?

  • Knowing what you have - Are you motivated ? Do you have the confidence ? What have you achieved ? What is holding you back ?

Talking about how you are feeling about choosing your studies or next steps can feel exposing and uncomfortable – sometimes it seems like everyone else knows exactly what they’re doing! 


Until now, you may have ignored the issue, but now it’s getting to the point where you need to make some decisions… I understand why that may not feel easy…


Now that you’re considering speaking to me, I want you to know that I am here to hold a safe space for you, help you go through what is going on and support you in understanding your options better.

Also if you are finding it difficult or would like some support to write a personal statement or motivational statement for a University application,



You need a review of the letter or statement you have written.


You’re in the right place!

Success Stories

I was a little lost when I contacted Emily for coaching.

I wanted to clarify where I was going and I didn't know how to get organised and structure my time. It did me good to talk to someone outside my family who was caring, and to put what was happening into words; it reassured me. Through our work, I was able to put things into perspective and start imagining a future with possibilities for success rather than obstacles.
