Sean Bennett

Career Coach

About

Sean has been coaching, mentoring, and tutoring people for the past 10 years.

In 2013, he managed to overcome his own public speaking fear to begin hosting a public speaking practice, as well as support groups for people with anxiety and depression, or low self-esteem. In 2015, he founded a creative- and business-writing community, hosting workshops on themes such as shame, obsession, love, friendship, relationships, and business writing, etc.

In 2020, he began working for SEVEN, which at the time was the highest-rated career coaching company in the UK (Sean was recruited here for his additional skills as a copywriter, having worked for brands like Oxford University Press and Savoo in the past). In 2021, Sean founded a charitable organisation called Coaching Through Crises, which seeks to provide free support to people experiencing homelessness and refugees.

As a career-coach, Sean specialises in helping people discover a sense of purpose, explore their transferable skills, build confidence, work on personal or business relationships, overcome procrastination, perfectionism, low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, as well as to write CVs, cover letters, and personal websites. So far, he has worked with everybody from CEOs to retail workers, hospitality staff to financial directors, change consultants to out-of-work students and mums and dads, etc.

For Sean, no problem is too big or too small. Whatever you want to achieve, he is here to help you, with the utmost respect and compassion, to get you to precisely where you want to be. “

Nicole Freeman

Career Coach

About

I’ve worn many hats in my time – chartered accountant, business advisor and consultant, award-winning business owner, clinical hypnotherapist, mental health counsellor and full-time mum. And for much of that time I was plagued with self-doubt despite the Cambridge degree, first class MBA and everything else on my CV. As a recovering perfectionist, high achiever and people pleaser, I get you. That’s why I coach people like you who want to live the amazing life they deserve instead of feeling stuck, trapped by the voices in their heads. Pesky voices, stubborn blocks, limiting beliefs…whatever you want to call them, helping you remove them is my speciality. Let’s overcome overthinking over Zoom and help you build a life you love with true self-belief.

“Where can I start? In a matter of days I became very relaxed and felt that I could share anything with Nicole. Her sessions are a joy and have helped me a lot in working on my goals. Her knowledge int this field can easily be felt after the first conversation you have with her. Nicole made me feel invincible and I’ve always left her sessions feeling like nothing could stop me. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to unlock their potential. I can’t wait to continue with the sessions for a long time coming.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Nicole, and I have consistently been impressed by her ability to assist me in developing my personal and professional goals through the power of mindset. Nicole possesses a unique talent for recognizing limiting beliefs and negative self-talk patterns that hinder progress, and she provides the necessary tools and strategies to reframe thinking and overcome such obstacles. Furthermore, Nicole excels at adapting her coaching approach to my individual requirements, and she is never hesitant to challenge limiting beliefs. She has invested time in understanding my situation, obstacles, and aspirations, and has designed coaching plans that address my specific needs. Her personalized approach has been extremely effective, and has enabled me to make significant progress towards accomplishing my goals. Beyond her impressive coaching abilities, Nicole is also an absolute pleasure to collaborate with. She is warm, empathetic, and approachable, and genuinely cares about the success and well-being of her clients. In addition, her coaching does not conclude at the end of the session; if we cover a particular topic, she will often send additional resources or leave uplifting voice mail messages that are always welcomed and beneficial. This is just one of the reasons why I believe she is an exceptional and distinctive coach; through every interaction, I can sense her dedication and care. Overall, I wholeheartedly endorse Nicole as a mindset coach. She possesses the expertise, experience, and personal qualities necessary to make a genuine difference in the lives of those she collaborates with.”

After every session, I was uplifted, motivated and I had a clear list of steps to follow to progress my business. Nicole is kind and compassionate and a pleasure to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough.”

Andrea has been my career coach since my first year of LLB Hons degree. I was struggling to obtain work experience and to overcome imposter syndrome.  Andrea helped me developing in my career from scratch, with Andrea's support I was able to secure my very first mini pupillage in my first year with Francis Taylor Building Chambers. Since then, I never looked back, and my CV became more employable. I always say to Andrea that she is not only a career coach but also a motivational speaker as she always encouraged me to not disappoint or how to deal with unsuccess. She gave me the best definition for Diversity and Inclusion I quote her " Diversity means, celebrating each other's differences". I  am greatly thankful to Andrea because with her support by the time I completed my degree I secured a full-time job with University of East London Career Zone as Career Advisor. The confidence I carry and professional achievements the credit goes to Andrea.

"Lucy makes you dig deep and dares to ask those questions you wouldn’t necessarily ask yourself. Over the last six months, Lucy has supported me to explore my own ideas and build on my personal brand. The powHERful workbook has very quickly become my go-to bible. It keeps me accountable but also helps shape my future plans. I feel confident that I have the tools to reflect on my own needs and I have seen a big shift in my confidence to explore my key pillars. I am so glad our paths crossed. My biggest wins are that I can: articulate my strengths, what is important to me, but most importantly why. I can tell my own story. Lucy listens and picks up on things you’d never have considered before. Don’t expect Lucy to tell you the answers, but what you can be absolutely sure of is that she is there every step of the way cheering you on. You get out what you put in. If you are wondering whether to work with Lucy …. stop. Take action and be prepared for a big shift!"

It was more than twenty years ago that I first experienced the power of psychology – how understanding human behaviour, our own included, could unlock tenacity and resilience in even the toughest of times. Since then, my fascination with people and their journeys has continued.

Using expertise in psychology, human behaviour, motivation, communication and well-being, I’ve proudly helped countless individuals discover new ways to experience fulfilment in their work and reach ambitious goals. I believe that with the right guidance and support, we can all realise our true purpose and experience success. Experiencing this empowerment in my own journey of self-discovery, I am passionate about helping others explore what it means to be fulfilled – in work and life.

Using a blend of coaching tools, including psychometrics and cognitive behavioural techniques, I help others utilise their strengths, create meaningful connections, and build resilience in the face of everyday challenges. I’m passionate about inspiring individuals to take charge of their lives and create meaningful, lasting changes that will propel them toward success. With my guidance, I strongly believe that anyone can discover what it means to be truly fulfilled in life and work.I also provide value-driven workshops and seminars on topics such as leadership, team building, well-being, and engaging workplace cultures.

I worked with Leanne through the Ride the Wave coaching programme - Leanne supported me through a challenging time with a series of career coaching sessions. Leanne took the time to work out what coaching style would work best for me, and ensured I was comfortable with the approach. Leanne used a variety of different methods and tools to help me reflect on my experience, my skills, and what I wanted for the future, as well as providing me with a toolkit so I can continue to reflect moving forward. Throughout our sessions Leanne always took an organised approach, created a safe environment, but also challenged me when I needed it. I highly recommend Leanne as a career coach!

I connected with Leanne through the Ride The Wave professional coach training for a series of career coaching sessions. I found Leanne to be a very organised and effective career coach who created an open and trusting space for our sessions. In particular, I appreciated Leanne's use of coaching tools, client feedback and post-session materials which I will keep hold of for my further career development and also in my own practice as a coach. Thank you for your reliable, knowledgeable and forward-thinking coaching!

I was fortunate to benefit from Leanne's insightful coaching through Ride the Wave. I was particularly impressed by how Leanne takes time to personalise her approach and tailor her delivery, tools and coaching methods to ensure you get the most of the sessions. In fact there were a couple of tools which were so effective that I've used them (and shared with others!) very regularly since she introduced them to me. Leanne's coaching style is informal and supportive but with the credibility and gravitas that makes it easy for you to open your ears and mind. We didn't have many sessions together but Leanne made sure we used the time very effectively and has since checked in with me regularly - which I think reflects how Leanne cares about the changes you're making as a result of her support. It goes without saying that I'd highly recommend Leanne.

About

Hi I am Lynne Peters a Wellbeing Mindset & Self Confidence Life Coach.

I am married with a son who has just returned home after completing his Masters at university and live in rural Norfolk where I love being out in Nature. I have a 40 year leadership career in banking behind me so I have many years experience of supporting others through career progression, money management, growing their self confidence and resilience.

My career included being a trainer/facilitator/coach and a wellbeing champion and Regional DEI Ambassador, I have just been made redundant and have pivoted to setting up and running my own coaching and training business using my many years experience in this area. I am an ICF (International Coaching Federation) Qualified Coach and my training was based around positive psychology and neuroscience so I understand the link between our bodies and brains which can often be when we get in our own way.

Wellbeing is my passion and having navigated burnout, menopause and chronic illness, it’s my resilience and lived experience that I have drawn on to recognise the support leaders and others need with their wellness and spotting the signs of burnout early.It’s my mission in life to support more people to support themselves too as it’s key to their wellness and help people realise that self care is not selfish it’s essential

“After working with Lynne, I was able to really prioritise and see a clear vision around my priorities to achieve a greater work/life balance, which is so important to me as I was having a significant change in my personal life that I did not want to impact my work. With Lynne’s support and coaching I was able to gain a much needed reminder of who I need to be and a clearer vision to be able to not burn out and what I want in my career. Lynne has a great tone and is completely confidential. Thank you Lynne for all your support; I Highly recommend Lynne if you are looking to make changes in your life for greater overall satisfaction in both personal and work.”

Lynne Coached me around my Wellbeing for around 6 weeks at a time when I was not feeling great about my life and feeling very stuck. I gained clarity and lots of techniques I could support myself with to prioritise me again which led to being able to return to work after a period of absence and keep the balance and boundaries between work and home life clearer. I became a fan of Podcasts along the way, can you believe I had never listened to one...

Lynne coached me for two months last year and it was a wonderful experience. I found her to be an excellent listener; patient, perceptive and dedicated to helping her clients achieve their goals. Sometimes I came to sessions, with a vague topic in mind, not really knowing where I needed to get to. Lynne skillfully helped me to explore my situation, focus in on what mattered most, and identify next steps that felt both meaningful and achievable. I would recommend Lynne as a coach to anyone who is seeking clarity and calm, or looking to commit to taking action

"I thought I had a plan and knew my career potential, but Alice Nisbet helped me do more. Even over the few coaching sessions we had, I better defined my strengths and needs, got the process started for finding my next big job, and got a significant salary increase in the negotiations. Having Alice ask thoughtful questions that dug deeper into how I operate and envision success also enabled me to manage career progression while accomplishing other big things in life (buying a house, moving to a different city). I've taken away far more than valuable notes from sessions with Alice - my career horizons feel like they have expanded."

Alice helped me think more clearly about my own personal development. She carefully invests however much time necessary to understand each client, keen to the fact no two paths are the same.

I am pleased to write this testimonial for Jackie Scott who we commissioned to deliver training sessions to young people, helping them succeed in their careers. I have witnessed first-hand the positive impact Jackie has had on the young people who attended her training courses. From the beginning of the sessions it was evident that Jackie possessed a passion for empowering young people and guiding then towards achieving their career goals. Jackie is dedicated and committed to her work and created a safe and supportive environment where everyone felt comfortable. One of Jackie’s strengths is her ability to connect with each individual on a personal level. Throughout the training sessions she consistently demonstrated her expertise and knowledge in a wide variety of areas together with emphasising the importance of developing essential skills such as effective communication, problem solving and adaptability.

About

I am Anna Edwards, and I spent over 11 years as a nurse within the NHS before transitioning into the realm of nurse retention and talent management. My journey led me to pursue an MSc in Leadership and Management, during which I conducted a comprehensive mixed methods study focused on the talent management of BAME colleagues within the NHS. Additionally I undertook a mentorship qualification with the NHS Leadership Academy and I hold a Holistic Career Development Career Coaching Certification.

Subsequently, I initiated a careers coaching platform and services within my local hospital, with a primary objective of creating a safe and supportive space for individuals with neurodiversity and those from underrepresented backgrounds to explore career planning and receive coaching. Since April 2023, I have been operating as a self-employed professional, diligently crafting resources and services to enhance interview skills, boost self-assurance, facilitate self-expression, and aid individuals in discovering their unique career paths.

My experience encompasses supporting individuals during the demanding COVID-19 pandemic, with a specialization in addressing burnout, anxiety, and promoting a balanced work-life equilibrium. Furthermore, I am deeply committed to tailoring my services to the needs of women, non-binary, POC and LGBTQIA+ individuals, who are often underrepresented in senior leadership and managerial roles.

I look forward to working with you together to plan and develop the life and career you want

Financial Advisor

About

I work closely with people to help them identify their goals and aspirations. With a clear understanding of their current situation, we work together to create a plan which provides them a path to help achieve what they want to, when they want to. I help business owners, senior management, recruiters and young professionals. I get introduced to a lot of people who have just moved jobs and are keen to know what they should be doing with their old pension. The earlier you can start talking to a financial planner, the greater the possibilities can be. Picture a world where finance is a little less complicated, tax allowances, tax reliefs and knowing what to do with your money makes more sense. I love helping people who are looking to save time in their busy schedule, understand their current financial position better and plan for the future rather than leave it to chance.

""I have recommended Jonathan to at least 10 people and for good reason. He is an expert at what he does. He has been instrumental in helping me to organise my finances and in particular, really understand the details of all of the pensions I have. He has worked tirelessly to find ways to simplify my pensions and overall finances to get me the best returns. He has always been available, at speed, to answer any queries I have and has regularly provided me with a service that goes the extra-mile. Jonathan is clear, concise and has really taken the time to get to know what is important to me, in order to provide me with a tailored service that is impeccable. If you are looking to build wealth in the short or long-term, there is no one else I’d recommend more highly than Jonathan.""

I will start by saying I can't recommend Emma highly enough. I worked with Emma during a big transition period in my life, and I've been fortunate to have her not only as my Career coach but also as a Life coach. I can happily say that not only she helped in countless ways, such as giving me courage and confidence, but I would go as far as saying that she changed my life. She loves what she does and does it with passion. Emma gave me constructive feedback and she did help me find my better and stronger self. After working on my attitude and help me prepare my tools such as CV, LinkedIn, interview prep, networking etc, we started the second stage of coaching which was when I started the actual job search, and in less than 3 weeks I got my first job in Software engineering. As a former professional musician, I would never imagine this happen to me, as I was expecting that would take me at least a year to shift into a career in Coding. But Emma helped me to understand that it's never too late, coding does not discriminate based on age, race, and background and it is okay to have different working experiences. I wish everyone had the chance to benefit from her experience. And I also wish I could be able to express my feeling and happiness better but all I can say now is THANK YOU EMMA!

If you’re looking for someone to help you with your life and career, look no further than Emma. No, seriously; you found what you were looking for. I have known Emma for many years so I was already familiar with her energy, empathy and ability to help others, but it was only this year that I reached out to her for structured support in my career and end up purchasing her gold package. She surpassed even my already high expectations. Emma is a superb motivator, she has vast experience in the business world and has an incredible array of valuable tips and tools that I will keep for life. There is no doubt that she helped me grow both personally and professionally in very simple and effective ways (even when I was putting in a lot of resistance). I contacted her when I felt lost and didn't know what direction to take in my professional life; by the time we began the last session of her programme, I had already signed a contract with an organization I would not even dream to enter prior to our first chat. So again, look no further than Emma. I could not recommend her more.

Emma provided me career coaching while I was transitioning into a new career. Emma immediately made me feel more at ease with the task of trying to find a job in a field that was still new to me. Even though we only spoke through virtual meetings, Emma was able to instill comfort and confidence in me about my ability to find a job as a new software developer. Despite never meeting in person, Emma was able to prepare me for the entire job search process. She prepared me so well, in fact, that I ended up finding a job within only a couple of months of searching. Emma provided me with break-downs of what I should expect during an interview. She even setup a mock interview which she conducted with me, and gave me a strong foundation to base my future interviews on. Along with the mock interview, Emma instilled in me a strong feeling of confidence in my ability to attain a job as a beginner developer. She achieved this through her consistent positive remarks about my inter-personal skills and highlighting what skills would be important in both an interview and on a team. Emma also dramatically improved my job search and job response rate by providing me with very useful websites for job hunting and also by updating my resume. With Emma's support, I was able to grow from having an awkward and uncomfortable interview experience to walking away from an interview feeling confident and proud in my abilities. Emma was able to help me so much because of her consistent support, wonderful personality, and a breadth of tools and techniques to make one a desirable prospective employee. Without Emma, I can confidently say that I would not have found a job as fast as I did, and in the field that I wanted.
