Hi, I am JK (Jennie-Kate) the coach behind JKChangeWork.
I offer focused, direct and supportive coaching to help you achieve your career coaching goals.
Together we'll explore your motivations and hopes when it comes to a career change or development.
You will get help in establishing clear goals. A space to identify and over-come any practical barriers you feel get in the way of that job, new career or overall job satisfaction.
If you are already confident with the practical side of job searching. Coaching will quickly focus on helping you with the bigger picture. Your own personal development & well-being needs. Helping you build the knowledge and understanding to make your career rewarding, balanced and a supporting-factor in a happier, healthier life.
From figuring out values, to managing and resolving conflicts (Internal or external). Helping you harmonise work and life responsibilities and goals.
If you're finding yourself with issues that stop you feeling as happy or healthy as you could be, coaching will help with that too.
Coaching is an investment for anyone ready to change but not quite sure how.
Our sessions can happen online or in person at offices in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Typically clients benefit from a pack of four coaching sessions**, to help you have the time and focus to access coaching at different phases of your career coaching journey.
Sessions last 60-90 minutes and most people spread each session between 2-8 weeks apart dependent on your situation and goals.
With a background in employability and mental health I've developed the skills, practical knowledge and intuition to help a range of people to meet their career aspirations.
My own career has its fair share of variety and ups and downs. With experience at frontline to senior leadership level. Back in 2017 I used my own coaching knowledge and approach to formally establish JKChangeWork and have since set up a sister company Where the Mind Grows coaching people in nature.
At JKChangeWork you receive a different approach to discovering a rewarding career and a happier life.
This isn't just surface level stuff.
I work with clients who want more from their work and life (even if that "more" is just about having more peace, time or sleep!)
From doubling income, to becoming self-employed. From a client who escaped a system that just didn't work for their well-being or the client whose job-change enabled them to start a family. Client's have even returned to education to pursue a dream career.
I get to witness people like you making remarkable changes to leave even more fantastic ( or simpler) lives!
My style is open, honest and every clients coaching journey is different. Because you bring your own version of unique experiences for us to tailor a best-fit approach to.
I help people discover (or re-discover) the assets and abilities you have to live a fulfilled and content life.
As a coach, I am not here to give you the answers. But to help you find them for yourself and reap the rewards and opportunities that come along with that!
A FREE 15 minute discovery call will help you discover how coaching together can help you and answer any further questions you may have.
** everyone is different and the FREE discovery goal will help find the best-fit package or PAYG (Pay as you go) option for you.

Loved today JK. Thanks for these notes & thanks for being the best coach I’ve ever worked with. You really are AMAZING!! 🌟🌟🌟
I felt valued, respected and listened to, which is so important in personal sessions like these. If you're in a rut, unhappy, want to change jobs, move into something new but don't know what, have issues with confidence and self esteem in the workplace, I would say give Jennie a call!
I coach some amazingly talented people.
