I specialise in helping women change careers, transition back into work and position themselves for promotion. Clients tell me I help them feel fully prepared and confident to kick their career goals.

Working together, I will help you:

  • Rediscover the best of who you are and what you can offer
  • Develop your “personal brand" to promote yourself confidently and authentically
  • Design a killer job search plan, and teach you how to network without the “yuk-factor”
  • Prepare confidently for interviews and stand out from the crowd!

    I have the highest-level Coaching qualification in Australia - Masters in Coaching Psychology. All frameworks and tools are proven to be effective in scientific studies. I'm accredited in essential career coaching and leadership tools. I'm a professional member of relevant professional bodies, including the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA). My coaching is informed by a longstanding corporate career, leading and coaching teams across a range of industries.

    I'm passionate about this work as a serial career changer myself, a mum who juggles career and family, and a belief that you can craft what you want.

    “The Express Career Coaching program was very thought provoking and explored aspects of my goals and strengths that I would never have been able to identify on my own. The career action plan has given me practical steps to work towards. This has made me feel much more empowered to ask for what I want not only in my current role but also what to watch out for in future job searches. Rather than feeling daunted when looking at job adverts and thinking "why would they want me" I'm approaching it with "is this in line with my goals and a place that would suit me". I would highly recommend working with Debra!” Kate M.
