We help organisations and individuals with Career Transition, Outplacement and Retirement coaching. 

Experients' Coaching provides mature experienced professionals with career transition guidance and support. Career transition support for older people requires specialist skills and experience.  The Experients' Coaching provision is delivered by our highly qualified coaches, all of whom have been specifically chosen for their experience with helping older workers and coaching clients over 50 with career transition support through to retirement advice. 


We work with your HR teams to put in place a package of support that best suits the needs of your organisation and its' people. We also assist corporates with advice and guidance for their departing experienced professionals. 

If you are a corporate looking for career transition support  for your team members, please see our information brochure below or contact us by email.


For individual clients, our coaches each offer a 30 minute chemistry test to understand each client's objectives and describe their coaching style in more depth.

Executive, Career Transition and Outplacement Coaching

Ian helps the client set clear objectives, both for each session and overall, ensuring that the coaching is forward looking. Contracting is clear and there are regular reviews of how effective the sessions have been to ensure the client is progressing. While Ian’s style is generally non-directive he is not prescriptive about this. Overall Ian seeks to really listen and support the client. Each coaching programme is designed for the particular needs and wishes of the client, with objective setting and action measures to ensure it is effective. But even more importantly with wide sector and role experience, humility and a focus on listening.
