Curated Conversations

1) What is a Curated Conversation – does it involve drinks and snacks? No, not unless you bring them yourself (which you’re welcome to do).

A Curated Conversation is a one hour Zoom conversation. I’ll ask you a series of questions to help you through your career dilemma or life challenge. Whilst it is structured it’s friendly and open – a way of hearing your thoughts played back and uninterrupted time for yourself. I’ll tape it, turn it into a transcript, analyse the themes and send these back to you, along with thoughts about actions you may like to pursue.

I just immediately warmed to you because you’re so open.  You’re so authentic. You’re just yourself. You don’t bullshit. You don’t pretend. You’re just full of energy and fun and so I had an instinctive trust. I didn’t think I would tell you about my breakup, my upbringing or my parents, or that I’m never good enough. But then I either shared my story or I held back and edited it. But I trusted you so I felt like I’d be comfortable. I didn’t think afterwards ‘Oh my god, what did I say?'”  Anne, Curated Conversation client

2) Will you judge me? No. I’ve had training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, am an Occupational (Organisational) Psychologist, Coaching Psychologist and mediator. I’ve also been through a whole help of things myself, so why not read my blog here or my professional qualifications here. I’m not a clinical psychologist or psychotherapist so if you have mental health issues please talk to your doctor, psychiatrist or therapist first.

3) Is it confidential? Yes. The conversation will be a safe space to talk about a work based question you want to ask yourself, or a life challenge you’d like to discuss. As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist I have to adhere to a code of ethics and whatever you say will remain completely confidential. I also have regular coaching supervision to ensure I’m coaching ethically and professionally.

4) How much does it cost? £400 (plus VAT) or US$550 and includes:

  • An initial Zoom call to discuss your career dilemma or challenge
  • Then a one hour Curated Conversation via Zoom
  • A transcript of the second Zoom session
  • A summary of themes that came up, plus actions you could pursue 
  • If you’d like a further conversation or coaching it’s £100 (plus VAT)/US$140 per hour

5) Can we go straight to coaching and not do a Curated Conversation? Yes of course. If you know what you want to cover and would prefer to get stuck in, then that’s fine too. I charge £100 (plus VAT) or US$140 per hour. See more about my coaching experience and qualifications here including client feedback here. My coaching work is included in this BBC Worklife article.
