About JM Professional and Career Coaching Services

Hi, I'm Jacky Matthews from JM Professional and Career Coaching Services. I help to transform skills and improve confidence making work more rewarding. I have 2 main passions; 1. Helping people to find the confidence to secure a job that they really enjoy, find rewarding and reflects their true ability. 2. I'm on a mission to improve the skills of managers, so that they can build a fantastic team and retain all their best staff. My work involves; * 121 coaching for managers to develop their skills * 121 coaching to help find the job of your dreams * Online course called 'Change your job with confidence' * Management training Work shouldn’t feel like work, it should be motivating and rewarding, right? Right and it can be, however, all too often people say; ‘I hate my job, but I don’t know what else to do or how to do it’. The answer is to have your own personal supporter, helper and assistant with years of experience in recruiting and developing people. In other words, a Career Coach, but if this is the sort of thing they are experts in, why doesn’t everyone have one? Well, there are always reasons not to go down this route. Often people think Coaches are only for top executives, which was probably true 10 years ago, but not now. There are many more coaches available and they are much more reasonably priced and not purely the domain of CEO’s. However, we still often hear the following reasons not to have a coach; • It’s too expensive and I can’t afford it • I don’t have time, I’m too busy or it’s the wrong time just now • I can do things for myself; I don’t think it would work for me, who is JM Coaching anyway? • I might not get the results I want, and it will be a waste of money, isn’t it just a chat? These reasons can sometimes hide a deeper fear; could we prefer to be in our comfort zone and fear what could actually be possible with a little help and direction? It is not true of everyone, but many of us prefer security, familiarity and perceived safety. It is one of the reasons why the recent pandemic has had such an impact on many of us. However, if recent events have taught us anything, it is that change is inevitable. The fear of the unknown has stopped many people from following their dreams and they remain in jobs or careers that are unrewarding and are merely a monthly wage. So let’s put aside the reasons for not having a career coach and see what support you could have to follow your dreams and find a job that you love and makes you want to get up in the morning; • You get help that is personal to you, the coach will change their approach and what is covered to suit your individual circumstances. • Dedicated time to focus on you and what you want to achieve. For the full time you are with your coach, the focus is on you with no external interruptions. You might want to; o Talk about new ideas and get feedback o Look deeper into any self-imposed barriers or confidence issues holding you back o Unwrap the reasons for staying in a job you dislike • Support to make informed decisions about what you really want, what career path you want to take and what development you want to carry out. • Support to have stand-out CV’s, cover letters, applications that get you the interview, and support and practice of interview skills to help you secure the dream job. • Identify your key skills and uncover your key strengths to maximise your potential. A careers coach won’t find you a job, they can’t prevent rejection, but they can provide you with personal insight, confidence, encouragement and inspiration. They can also provide you with the best chance of reaching your dreams, so don’t settle for anything less.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
All our online courses are unique and coach you through a series of activities, as if you were with a coach, but are a more affordable option. 'Change your job with Confidence' online course - £99 special offer RRP £199 'Use self-awareness to do your job better and faster' - £199 'Be a manager your staff respect and work hard for' - £199 121 coaching - £65 per 1 hour session Packages; Silver - buy 2 sessions and pay £120 Gold - buy 4 sessions and pay £200
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
Free initial 20 minute telephone call to see if I can help and if you think you could work with me. There is no obligation because you need to feel able to talk to your coach if you are going to get maximum benefit out of the sessions.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I trained as a coach in 2006 and have used these techniques when managing people and teams ever since. I have over 20 years in Further and Higher Education, starting as a teacher and moving through the management levels to senior manager. I am a member of the Association of Coaching and abide by their code of ethics. However, more importantly is that I enjoy helping people and I hate seeing people in jobs that dislike. I want to help clients see their true worth, realise the skills, knowledge and experience they have and how to develop it further. Education and training is really important but so is passion for what you do. I want clients to feel the way I do about my job.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Speak to the coach first and ensure you connect with them and feel confident that you could be open and honest with them. If you can't speak to them openly, you will be wasting your money!
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Be clear about what you want to achieve from the coaching and ask the coach how they could get you to that point.
What are some good examples of past customers?
My clients tend to be having some sort of problem. Please get in touch if any of these are you; • You need a job fast, either you haven’t got a job or the one you’re in, you need to get out fast. • You want to advance your career – you’ve been stuck at the same level for too long or the opportunities in the organisation that were promised have not materialised. You may have been passed over for promotion. • You’ve been made redundant and you may want to change the sector you have been working in. • You want to discover what you really want to do. You’ve been doing a job that you dislike; it isn’t what you thought it was going to be, but you don’t know what else to do. • You’re not sure what is next regarding your career, which route to take or if it is right for you. • You need help with a new job you’ve just started because you feel a bit out of your depth, or it is taking longer to settle in than you thought. • Family and friends are no longer listening to you about work issues! You have no one to talk to and it’s getting you down.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I have been working on an online course called 'Change your job with Confidence'. Paying for 121 coaching can be too expensive for some people, so I wanted to provide a way of coaching clients that would be more affordable. So I have filmed a video that takes all of my face to face activities and puts them online for clients to complete. This takes all the benefits of coaching while being much more affordable and flexible as to when you can complete the activities. The feedback to date has been brilliant and clients are finding it useful to improve their confidence, identify their ideal job, their key strengths, their transferable skills, plan for the future and prepare amazing examples for use in applications and interviews. The course should take at least 10 hours to complete, but you can do this in your own time.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was a Director in a large FE College and I was really stressed and it was impacting on my health so I left that role in August 2019 because a friend I was helping through a difficult situation at work, turned to me and asked why I wasn't coaching as a full time job because I had helped her so much. That was my light bulb moment and the reason you are reading this now!
