1-1 Confidential Coaching
I help women working in academia to overcome workload overwhelm and regain their clarity, confidence and control.
I specialise in workload management and ditching guilt; creating healthy boundaries and reigniting creative spark & researcher identity.
Are you a woman working in academia (from PhD on) who is feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from your research and role?
- Do you want to create healthy boundaries and prevent burnout?
- Do you want to publish more AND feel good about your writing?
- Do you want to regain clarity, confidence and control over your career?
My coaching can help you to:
- Find your best way to work
- Identify your realistic timeframes
- Pin down your priorities and make a plan to get you working on them
- Ditch guilt about saying no and drawing boundaries
- Get you to value your work and research
- Get you writing again - productively & confidently
- Reignite your purpose and passion by rediscovering what your why is - now.
Everyone is offered a FREE 20 minute 'fit' call via Skype. This is to ensure that my coaching style is right for you. You will also receive a free workbook to help with initial goal setting ahead of the call.
If you decide to book a further call or package, you have 2 options:
A 90 minute Skype consultation and tailored follow-up workbook. This is suitable is you know the issue you want to work on e.g. a writing project, a particular timing issue.
A 3 month package. You get 6 x 30 minute Skype calls and tailored workbooks with practical tools and mindset reset activities. This is more suited if you are looking to tackle overwhelm; establish boundaries; set priorities; reconnect; find your confidence. These are much more interlinked issues and an investment of time will help untangle them and get you moving again.
Dr Vik Turbine
I'm Vik, a former academic. I was a full-time, permanent Feminist Politics Lecturer for 10 years.
In that time I became an experienced qualitative researcher designing and running funded projects; a published author; a PhD supervisor and examiner; an innovative and respected teacher; a leader in research and outreach, and held key roles in assessments and curriculum design.
I resigned my post in May 2019 after my chronic illness continued to progress (I have stage 4 endometriosis) and made me pause to think about what I really wanted to do and how I wanted to work.
I established 'The Learning Curve Collective' because I wanted to bring my expertise and experience to coaching; I saw an incredible need for a confidential, non-judgemental space for women to explore what they wanted.
I intimately understand the challenging and changing terrain of HE in the UK and how this impacts on the working cultures and environments.
My coaching is not about 'fixing' you; but it is about helping you to find the control that you have - we often do have more than we think.
Since then, I've run an online course and have grown my 1-1 coaching client base.
I've helped my clients make transformations in their mindset and approaches to work and boundaries.
