"Before the Turning Point session, I was stressed, negative, not confident and didn't know where I was going in my career.
Coaching with Careers by Design helped me achieve the confidence and self-worth I always had but never was able to realize before.
I came out of this a stronger, more confident and relaxed individual than I was just several months ago.
Coaching is unbiased. It is where someone listens and guides you based on the problems or dilemmas you have. I have gone to friends and colleagues looking for answers and realized that wasn't the right way to do things. It was confusing and they guided you into a direction you weren't suited for or comfortable in. I am glad I went for coaching."
The HeartMath tools helped me immensely. Can I rate it as 100 (out of 10)! I will continue to use them throughout my career progression."
"Hello! I took some coaching from you about a year and a bit ago. I wanted to e-mail you to give you a very extremely belated thank you.
I am still bookkeeping but it will be for theatres and artists and I will be making up my own schedule. I will also be taking on the duty of building and running seminars on how to do excel, how to budget, etc., which is fantastic because it will help me build the skillset we discovered together. And fantastically, in the long run I will be making a higher salary.
I could not have done this without you and Careers by Design. Though it has been over a year, it was those six sessions that really helped me set my plans in motion. I got a better handle on my anxiety and drove myself to apply to jobs. I built up my interview experience and managed not to let the defeats get me down. I have also begun to network and put further long term plans in motion by getting more involved in the video game community.
This new day job is a small step, but an important one. I can't thank you enough for the service you provided. If anyone asks me about changing their career, I'll be sure to send them your way.
"I have worked with Careers by Design over the past 4 months, as I was in a career rut and questioning my choice of being a creative professional.
In the shorter term, Lee taught me powerful HeartMath stress management techniques that helped me feel better day to day.
I thought the HeartMath tools were incredibly effective - I would rate these tools as a 10 (out of 10)!
Once I had improved my mindset, I was able to focus on long-term career planning and strategy.
Lee provided an invaluable third party soundboard, detached from my family and workmates, to truly help me evaluate my situation and the viability of staying put.
All told - it was by no means an easy journey - I had to take an honest look at myself, and evaluate what I was able to personally change. In the end, I got a $10,000 raise and a promotion.
I would highly recommend Careers by Design to any professional looking to advance to the next level in their development."
"As an over-thinker and worrier, I always managed to stress myself out. Having the tools to identify the cause of my stress and the emotional importance I have placed on it has helped me to slowly rid myself of it.
Just going through the steps of Notice and Ease while getting ready for bed has vastly improved my sleep."
"My strongest feeling prior to coaching was mainly of disorientation. I was looking for guidance on which direction to take my skill set.
I felt no hesitation in hiring you. I was eager for your insight and what I found unique was the human touch: your method was wonderfully organic, not mechanical like other Career Counseling systems.
Coaching has taught me to value myself more. This has helped my confidence level.
The HeartMath tools were astoundingly effective, and reached directly to the core of what I was trying to work through. It brought about a wave of emotion that I had been tamping down on thus I was able to clearly see my true issue."

Somehow I had convinced myself that I was getting too old to change.
Careers by Design has given me the courage to re-evaluate so many areas of my life.I especially appreciate their approach to working on both personal and work issues.
When I decided to find a career coach, my objective was to get some career guidance. I never really expected the positive impact that our sessions would have on both my personal and career life.
I trust my coach - I feel very comfortable being myself during our sessions. Feedback from my coach is very valuable - a lot of great in-session and take home information.I am so calm and present during the sessions and always feel refreshed and rejuvenated after them. I am inspired by my coach and always leave the session filled with energy and hope.
It's amazing to have something exceed your expectations.
I am so thankful. You have such a balanced approach to coaching and it is a perfect fit for me.
Before the coaching at Careers by Design, I felt there was a disconnect between the types of jobs I was interviewing for and what I really wanted to do.
I was looking for opportunities that closely matched my previous job.
With coaching, I tested and reviewed my values as well as my strengths and weaknesses.
I came to the convincing conclusion that I was looking for the wrong thing and Careers by Design helped me to realize and explore a new path that would satisfy my needs and values while utilizing my strengths and skills that I wanted to focus on in my next job.
Careers by Design offers an extremely well thought out and comprehensive career program that led directly to my recent success.
The coaching was compassionate, non-judgemental and highly skilled. They care deeply for their clients and their desire and passion for the work done shows through with their professional and positive attitude.
I appreciated the thoughtfulness put into More Happy Mondays coaching program, which focuses not only on career development but also on the emotional and deeper side of the equation, which in my opinion is what makes the work so effective.
The HeartMath tools I learned were easy to implement and allowed me to be much calmer and a lot less reactive during the normally stressful career transition period of time. I find them very valuable and I continue to use them every day to lower stress and anxiety.

"I felt my coach was very easy to talk to which made the discussions very easy and not so clinical.
It was comfortable to open up about things that I didn't necessarily want to face, but needed to.
I was given ideas and feedback that I will always remember and continue to use in my day to day searches.
The HeartMath is a great tool to keep with you at all times. Easy to use and only takes a few minutes of your time.
I have passed on some of the info to friends and family in hopes that they will use it to make their lives less stressful and happier.
I wish I had known about this technique in my previous career as it would have given me the opportunity to tackle some challenging times a lot easier.
This is something that I hope to take with me and utilize in my future.

"After graduating, the concept of entering the workplace was a bit overwhelming. I wanted to make sure I was heading in the right direction to ensure lifelong learning, success and happiness.
I wanted to make sure that I had the right goals for me in mind and the right tools to achieve those goals. Through working with Careers by Design I gained valuable perspective, focus and reassurance that I was on the right path.
My coach helped me clarify my goals and gave me the resources I needed to ensure future success.I was surprised at how helpful the dedicated time of guided self-reflective thought was - something which Careers by Design's services provided.
It is easy to put off this type of consideration, and having a set time and guidance made all the difference in giving me a refreshed sense of career confidence.
