Jo Oogarah

Career Development Coach

Supporting ambitious, talented women to thrive in their careers and lead fulfilling lives

Women have supposedly never had it better. Fully incorporated into the working world; encouraged to strive for a fulfilling career; on an equal footing with men. We can have it all, we’re told. 

Why then are so many of us struggling? And why are so many of us leaving the workplace, never to return? Or settling for lower-paid and less well-qualified positions once we’ve had children?

I’m Jo Oogarah and I help professional, ambitious women to thrive in the workplace, keep their careers on track and lead fulfilling home lives, whilst also raising a family. I’m passionate about helping women continue to work without burning out while raising a family or balancing other personal commitments. I also work with companies to help them retain and develop talented women, at all stages of their career.

As a qualified careers coach (PGDip, Reading University) and Certified One of Many Women’s Coach I offer women a unique combination of strategic careers coaching, consulting, training and life management tools designed specifically for them.

Working with me will make you feel more empowered to make small, manageable changes that will enable you to think more clearly about your big-picture ambitions and better able to focus on developing your career.

I thought I was capable of managing everything – work, house, projects, family – and trying to run my business, but after so much burnout I started to get frustrated. I was so happy to meet Jo and join her coaching programme. It really gave me focus, confidence and overall strength in areas where I thought I was weak, such as my business. I cannot thank Jo enough, the way she managed to shift things around for me and made me realise I have much more potential than I thought. It also made me understand that to thrive in every aspect of our lives we need to rest, to slow down, and to plan – something I had been missing all these years. So, if you are running everywhere and trying to manage many things at the same time and you feel like nothing is enough, you probably would really benefit from working with Jo.
