"I met with Mary at a time when I was quite unhappy in my present job and confused about how to best move forward. Although there were certain things that I was sure about there were a lot of other aspects that I had far less clarity about. Mary took the time to really listen to me - my motivations, skills/abilities, past influences, lifestyle, long-term desires and other things that I myself had not actually considered before, which, looking back now, were relevant and perhaps lay dormant. Through this process, Mary challenged me to focus on what it was that I really wanted from my career (and how to prioritise these desires when seeking a new role). She also introduced me to other potential careers and offered practical advice on how best to go about this and by the end of the session, I was able to view my career with fresh eyes, greater peace and experienced renewed conviction. Mary also pointed out aspects that worked well in my current position and this really helped me to stop feeling 'stuck and trapped' in my job. I am now in the process of making applications to opportunities that I'm genuinely excited about and my consultation was instrumental in this! Thanks Mary! "
