We’ve all been there; no motivation to wake up in the morning, no recognition for your hard work, no promotion in sight.
It’s a bad place to be.
But don’t you think you deserve better? To have a clear career path laid out for you?
What if you were told you that the answer to your work woes lies solely in you?
What is career coaching?
Career coaching is for anyone looking to take control of their professional life, to achieve work/life happiness and perhaps even a promotion. Working with an executive coach or a professional mentor opens up opportunities and paths that you may never have seen before.
Professional mentoring isn’t being told what to do and when, it’s about empowering you with the skills and the vision to make your dreams a reality.
Whether you are a C-suite exec, mid-weight professional or you’re starting off on a new career journey, working with a career coach is the best way to build on your attributes and lay out the stepping stones that will get you to your end goal.
“A good coach doesn’t give advice. A good coach facilitates the opening up and creation of the path to your goal. Using a quiver full of tools to create the path and light your way an excellent coach will assist you to hit your target. Roger has a proven track record of hitting the target every time. ”
How does it work?
We focus on a combination of traditional life coaching techniques and neurolinguistic programming to help you unlock your potential. Career coaching isn’t about telling you what to do. It’s about building confidence, working through the things you feel are holding you back and creating a mindset that allows you to come to your own realisations.
We will keep you focused while ensuring you are advancing towards your defined goals.
What can you achieve with career coaching?
There’s an immeasurable number of things you can achieve with career mentors, but notably, you’ll see improvements in both your working life and your own sense of self.
- Learn to perform at your best with all colleagues, clients and co-workers
- Improve your communication skills and linguistic joysting
- Build resilience to help you overcome setbacks
- Know what you want to do and how to achieve it
- Recognise your strengths and be able to draw on them when needed
- Decide on priorities and how to maintain them

Testimonials What our clients say about our service
I liked Roger Southam’s tenacity and direction. When he asked me to make a visual representation of my vision I realised that was what had been missing, and I got it. I appreciate his humour and presence. Thank you. FANTASTIC.
I have known Roger for a number of years and have always admired his energy, tenacity and ability to ‘think outside the box’. Having recently established a new business I came to Roger to seek advice on a number of issues. He very quickly made me realise that the problems really only existed in my own mind and that by focusing too much on the detail I had lost perspective of the bigger picture. Encouraging me to approach problems with an open mind really gave me clarity. Roger’s intuitive and informal style not only helped resolve these specific issues but has also left me with the confidence to be more decisive in the future
I came to Roger with an issue. I had just walked out of a high-profile position with a very successful firm after a week’s work. After the week at work, I was left with a gamut of emotions including confusion, embarrassment, failure, uncertainty, shame but somehow, relief. I had several options: to go back and give them another go, to walk completely away or to begin the (often) lengthy process of finding another position. In less than three hours Roger enabled me to stop my self-chastisement and get some clarity around the issues and the decision I had to make. We went through a number of processes that allowed me to see why I had walked away, what the real crux of the problem was and what the next steps were.
A friend recommended that I speak with Roger as I’d experienced a loss of confidence. The firm I worked for had gone into liquidation and I was suddenly directionless, needing to find a new job but with a growing sense of self-doubt. The idea of facing interviews at that stage was appalling. Roger helped me to put everything into perspective and to draw on past experiences and successes, reminding me of both my confidence and competitiveness. The was invaluable and well spent – now not only do I have a plan hoping forward I also have the resources to help with any future issues.
Roger Southam made me see that I was making a big general problem from a small specific issue. Making me laugh at it was brilliant. Identification of resources was excellent and to the point. It is easy sitting with him and very comfortable looking at these things. The conclusion and next step was easy and obvious. If we hadn’t done the session I would be where we started. A big thank you.
Going through a very tough time at work made me question my whole ability and what I’d actually achieved over the past 20 years. Roger dissolved those doubts in minutes and showed me how to get what I wanted in simple steps. The obstacles I had created were in fact not obstacles at all. Without Roger’s help I would have gone and hidden in a corner somewhere. Now I know I’ll do better than I’ve ever done before.
