The one stop shop for anyone who wants a career change, regardless of their age or industry, to discover what they truly want and need from a new career. 

Based on leading theories of career development and my 40 years’ experience, the course will help you understand yourself better, as well as the jobs you could do, and use this new knowledge to take your next step with confidence.

The course replicates the process a careers advisor would usually take you through in 8-10 in person sessions, generally costing £75-100 each - up to £1000 in total.

Do you want to change career, but feel like your next step is unclear?

In the midst of everything going on in 2020, it’s become really clear that work just isn’t working for a lot of people right now. A recent survey from Aviva has shown that for lots of reasons 53% of people are thinking about changing career at the moment, but with careers advice less available than it’s ever been, most people don’t know where to turn.

That’s why I’ve created the Essential Career Change Course - to help anyone who’s thinking about a career change to start to see their next step more clearly. The first module is free below, so you can even try it out before you buy.

The course takes you from where you are now, over a bridge that we’ll build together towards your next career step, made up of the things you’ll discover about yourself and your opportunities along the way. If that sounds interesting, just download the first module below and I’ll explain more in the video.

Good luck, and see you on the course!

Feedback from Career Changers

"I lost my job during lockdown and knew I didn’t want to continue down the path I was on. I gave the Essential Career Change Course a try and it really helped me think about what was important to me and now I’ve been lucky enough to land a job in the food sustainability sector, something I’m truly passionate about."

Changed career from advertising to food sustainability

"I hated the job I was in and needed to decide my future, but I lacked the confidence and knowledge to make a decision, leaving me feeling helpless. The Essential Career Change Course helped me work out what jobs I would be suited to and most importantly, enjoy. It helped me break down my personality, desires, and drives, giving me detailed information and instructions on how to achieve my career change. Hugely recommended."

About me

Hi, I’m Barbara, it’s great to meet you!

Almost everyone has a career of some sort, but very few people know where to turn for advice about it. Career guidance used to be available to everyone, but these days it’s incredibly hard to find.

That’s why I started The Career Dr. I’ve had the pleasure of spending all my professional life working with people to fathom out what they want to do with their careers, writing books about how careers work, and had my work featured in some of the world’s leading journals and publications. I believe everyone deserves the chance to discover a career that fulfils them and makes them truly happy, they just need the right guidance to get there.

Wherever you are in the world, the principles that underpin my courses should be relevant and help you see the next step of your career more clearly. If you’ve got any questions or comments please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

Good luck on the next exciting stage of your career!
