“Coaching with Stacey was an amazing experience. Stacey is a very intuitive coach, reads between the lines and reflects back observations based on what you’ve said (or possibly not said). She has an ease about asking questions that are powerful and focused on her client. I found her to be encouraging, supportive, and direct in a way that was non-threatening.

Stacey is focused on making sure her client gets the best outcome in identifying what’s important to them. She helped me remain accountable to action items and areas that were important to me.

Through coaching with Stacey, I learnt to listen to my instincts and be more confident in my decisions. Since I was starting a new consulting business, I benefited from Stacey’s background and knowledge as an entrepreneur. I became more confident in my skills in building the business and accomplished a great deal during our time coaching together.”

“When I started coaching with Stacey, I was resenting working in my business. I felt a lack of control over my own time management. Everything in my business felt chaotic – a big mess. I was also struggling with staff management. I wasn’t sure what was making me feel this way or how to address it but I wanted help to solve those problems. And I knew I wanted better work/life balance and clarity in my schedule. As a business owner, I have a small team I wasn’t managing that well. I needed structure and help with this too.

Since working with Stacey, I’ve managed to create a work schedule that allows me time to work on my business. This has given me the clarity I was desperately lacking. I’ve also found a way to lead my team that suits my personality and aligns to my values. In the past I found this very hard, as I’m not the traditional leader type. But by discovering a way to lead that works for me, I feel less resentful towards leadership. I’m more motivated to implement and develop these skills.

As a coach, Stacey has the ability to pick up on the areas that need to be worked on in order for you to lead a rewarding personal and professional life, aligned to your most important values. When we first started working together, I didn’t even know what my values were! She knows how to guide you in the direction that is right for you, using a variety of coaching methods. You come out the other end realising what needs to be done in order to achieve what you inherently desire from your personal and professional life. Because of this ability, Stacey’s coaching impacts both your career and life. Our coaching sessions fly by so quickly. Afterwards, I’ve always felt so inspired, full of determination and hope for a more fulfilling and satisfied future.”

“Stacey helped to coach me through a life transition in which I was struggling to understand the barriers I had put in my own path to move forward. She was empathetic and thought-provoking, challenging me to take a step outside of my typical thought patterns and shift my perspective.

Even when I told her there was nothing more to uncover, she intuitively helped me see deeper beneath the surface of the problem and uncover hidden fears I hadn’t realized had been holding me back. She is an inspiring coach who is truly invested in helping you to reach your goals. I would highly recommend working with Stacey.”

Powerful questioning

In her consulting work, Stacey used in depth questioning, a fundamental aspect of coaching, to help the professionals she worked with get clear on what they wanted from their careers.

Structured process and strategic career action plan

As she now does in her career coaching work, Stacey then worked with her clients to consider how these work priorities fit into their ideal lifestyle and devised a strategy to get them to where they wanted to go.

Coaching individuals through major career decisions over many years

Stacey had many clients come back to her years later to guide them through major career decisions, such as unexpected job offers or promotions, even if they didn’t engage her in their job search at an earlier stage.

Below is the testimonial of a client who has worked with Stacey many times over the years to support her career:

“Stacey is a wonderful advisor and mentor. I first met Stacey three years ago when I was considering a career change and wanted to understand the legal market in Perth. She provided very useful and constructive information, as she has an in depth understanding of the Perth legal sector, which was crucial in my career choice. Stacey later recruited me for a legal position in Perth and she was very professional throughout the entire recruitment process.

Recently, I have used Stacey’s career coaching services. I learned how to strategically format my CV so I presented my experience in a way that was more attractive to employers. She provided very detailed feedback and useful tools, and as always, she was very professional and personable.

By taking Stacey’s advice, I highlighted my key skills upfront, which allowed me to show how my experience linked together and complemented other skills. By using Stacey’s services, I was able to secure an employment offer in a new sector where the employer saw the value in my skill set and how it applied to their business.”

Supporting professionals to transition their careers

In her recruitment work, Stacey’s employer clients engaged her to find an ideal candidate with existing experience that matched the requirements of their position. However, on many occasions she was able to successfully assist professionals with no experience in a certain industry sector or specialist field to make the transition they wanted. She achieved this by working with them to get crystal clear on their transferrable skills, goals and what they wanted from their job and career.
