Helen Foster Coaching

Transformational Coach for Women in the Media

Hi I’m Helen,

I work with women in the media who feel their career is not going the way they expected and who want to do something about it. They have too much choice, not enough choice, or no choice at all. They feel stuck. They do not known in which direction to go and have lost all sense of who they are or what their purpose is.  Is this you?

This was certainly my experience when I worked at the BBC for 20 years. Faced with moving nearly 200 miles to Salford, working part time at the same level, I was thinking “Is this it?  Really? What’s next?”  At various other times I was overlooked for promotion, felt I had worked myself into a corner I couldn’t get out of, witnessed bullying but was unable to do anything about it and at one point, even thought, “I’ll never get another job anywhere, let alone here!”

Working in the media is perceived as both prestigious and glamorous.  Of course, it can sometimes be both.  It can also involve exceptionally long hours and lots of hard work with a social life that only includes colleagues.  What seems an incredible and exciting career choice, may turn out to be not what you hoped for.  Is this you?


Or it could be that it is the dream job.  It has been challenging, stimulating, creative.  Every day is different.  You work with great people; you may have travelled the world; you are at the top of your game.  And yet something is missing,  You need a new challenge. But what?

The choices may seem endless.  Or they may feel extremely limited.  You feel frustrated.  You feel trapped.  Change needs to happen, but how?

If you recognise yourself in any of these scenarios, then I can help you.

Helen Foster Coaching supports you to understand yourself better, identify what it is you want to do next, guides you to implement the steps to get you there and helps you find the clarity, direction and fulfilment you need to re-discover your purpose.
