Transition to Retirement
"The Career ID Assessment has confirmed where I am currently positioned personally & professionally.

Career Transition Support
"I found CML's coaching support very helpful. It was such a good opportunity to get started to re boot my career after being made redundant in July 2021. How to proceed in preparing a resume and understand the current trends in applying for roles has been invaluable. The templates supplied have assisted greatly. I feel that I am now well prepared to put my best foot forward to apply for roles. The service you provide is such a great investment to anyone's career."
Webinars and Career Coaching Support
"CML came into my life at a time when it felt like the world was crashing in. At almost 15 years with a dream company I, like many others were dealt the redundancy blow. I found myself unemployed for the first time in 29 years and clueless about what to do. I didn't have an updated resume or even know what LinkedIn was but within 5 mins of meeting with my coach, I felt supported and inspired. "
"Sessions with CML coach changed me, she just has that way of making you see yourself through her eyes, she oozes positivity, glows with enthusiasm, and genuinely cares. Even a year later as I go through a personal health crisis my coach is still there for me, she understands my issues and empowers me to face each day with positivity. Everyone needs CML in their life, I'm forever blessed to have had this support."
