'A Practical Approach to Happiness at Work': Individual 6 Week Coaching Programme

(Face-to-face, or via Skype, 1 to 1.5 hours per week)

Happiness at Work Group Coaching

Turn your lacklustre job into a job you love!

We are at work too many hours to be bored or miserable. However, when we feel that way, it’s not always easy know what to do.

• Perhaps the job you loved has now become a bit dull and boring.
• Maybe you wake up dreading your day.
• You might be a high achiever whose lost zest for their role. 
• Maybe you’d like a job that feels more meaningful.
• Perhaps you don’t feel like your skills are recognised or you’re having the opportunity to grow.
• You might be thinking about leaving your work but aren’t sure what to do next.
• Or, you can’t leave your job, but don’t know how to make things better.
• Perhaps you’re tried several jobs and are still not happy.

This programme draws on research I have done with people who always enjoy their work. It offers compelling insights and strategies to help you take back control and find a positive way ahead – empowering you to achieve greater happiness, fulfilment and meaning in your work.
