P.GradDip Human Resource Management, BA (Psychology), Results Certified Coach
Having dealt with a wide variety of candidates over the years, interviewing literally thousands of individuals, I was amazed by the number of people who were dissatisfied with their jobs, retrenched, or simply had the desire to achieve professional fulfilment in their careers.
Like you, I have experienced my own career transitions and learned valuable lessons along the way. By becoming a Professional Career Coach, I understand how to give people total peace of mind during a challenging time. I've now happily helped well over 1000 individuals successfully make career transitions.
I enjoy keeping my industry knowledge up to date by actively working in Executive search, partnering with organisations to find top talent. This has enabled me to leverage off my extensive network across a broad range of industries. This means my clients get the latest advice around the current job market.
As an intuitive, upbeat person, I empower my coaching clients to make the big decisions and set challenging goals and actions, whilst providing the tools and valuable feedback to support them to get there. I am dedicated to achieve results, with many insights, or “aha!” moments along the way. I possess a holistic approach to coaching, with a real focus on health and well-being and practice what I preach by keeping myself in check with yoga, exercise and meditation (although, I am still working on the last one!).
Drawing from a vast background hiring staff, along with Psychology, Human Resource and Coaching qualifications, I enjoy partnering with clients to develop the right career solutions. I've had career advice articles published in The Age and Herald Sun, as well as CareerOne and MyCareer (see Articles tab). I love meeting new people, so am always open to a chat if you're an organisation in need of finding top talent, or an individual in need of a career change.

Fiona and I have been working together for a short time but in this time she has been an excellent source of information pertaining to recruitment, personal development and coaching. Her easy going style and demeanor makes it easy to work with. Fiona has an innate ability to foster openness, trust and honesty which makes it easy share information limited to only a few people. If you are looking for a coach and mentor to help develop your career and personal development, I would not hesitate in recommending Fiona.
After returning from 5 years working in the Middle East I was finding it very difficult to get back into my area of business mainly because my network in Melbourne was almost non existent. Fiona was instrumental in giving me the skills and guidance I needed to build my network and start accessing useful contacts. After a relatively short period working with Fiona I was able to secure a COO role with a multinational advertising company based in Melbourne. I would thoroughly recommend Fiona for her patient and enthusiastic support.
Fiona has been a fantastic coach in regards to both my career and on a personal level. Her in-depth insights were able to complement her guiding and accountable coaching methods. She has helped provide me with the tools to be as successful as I want to be in both my career and personal life. I highly recommend Fiona if you require some guidance, clarity and direction for your life
Fiona is an exceptional personal coach, specializing in careers and the job market, who can guide you to win your next position.
She is highly experienced in identifying your area of expertise and key skills. She will then show you the best way to communicate them to a potential employer. Fiona highlighted the most relevant information on my resume and cover letters, which was instrumental in guiding me to get the right job.
Fiona also provides on-going support throughout the job hunting process. With Fiona as your coach, you feel confident and on the right track towards your next job.
