Supporting people to overcome barriers to employment, helping people to find jobs.


A job coach is an individual who is employed to help people with disabilities learn, accommodate, and perform their work duties. In addition to working on skills related to performing specific job tasks, a job coach also helps with interpersonal skills necessary in the workplace.Career Coaching is one or a series of collaborative conversations with a trained professional who operates within an ethical code. The process is grounded in evidence-based coaching approaches, incorporating theories and tools, and career theory and aims to lead to a positive outcome for the client regarding their career decision, work and/or personal fulfilment.

"I would highly recommend Straight Talk Coaching Consultancy and its founder Elizabeth Harding-Massey. Elizabeth worked with me on a one to one basis, helping and guiding me through the options of a career change and also assisting with updating my CV. I found the process very easy, Elizabeth was professional. She made me feel at ease in her approach making sure that I was comfortable and understood everything as we went along. Elizabeth clearly explained her role and I felt reassured that I was in very capable hands. She gave me the time I needed to process what was being said and I was free to ask questions I was unsure about. I would certainly recommend her to any future clients thinking of having career or work related coaching"
