Career Coaching & Guidance
I work with clients who need to work in partnership with someone to help them regain their confidence and self-esteem around work related issues either during or after divorce.
Whether it is help writing your CV or interview tips and hints, my background in recruitment, lived experience of divorce and being a co-parent gives me a unique perspective with which to help my clients who need guidance at a very stressful time. My client need to be heard and I provide a listening space for them.
I have psychological training from The Institute of Psychosynthesis and work closely with family lawyers and their clients who are navigating work issues as a result of divorce.
My coaching practice is a safe and empathic place for you to share and, together, for us to create the next step on your career path, post divorce.
Earning Capacity Report
The Earning Capacity Report™ is an independent, professional assessment of an individual's earning capacity. It will detail what an earning capacity is both now, and at a point in the future and I will take into account the confidence of the individual as well as previous experience, gaps in employment and also childcare responsibilities or other barriers that need to be realistically factored in. It is unbiased and independent and is usually used in mediation to facilitate discussions around financial remedy matters.
Example roles can be given from current vacancies in the market place and I give a projected salary estimation too.
As a Career Coach with a background in recruitment, I can also support someone who is feeling daunted at the prospect of returning to work or different work after a divorce.
Review of Earning Capacity Report
"Claire Deacon recently provided an earning capacity report™ to assist a separated couple in mediation with me. There are often issues regarding work with disputes about how much a party might be able to work, and what level of income they might be expected to achieve. This is an issue where it is often challenging to find common ground so being able to obtain an expert report from an experienced professional really helped to inform their discussions so that they were able to find a way forward based on what was objectively realistic with regard to work. Claire’s report was thorough in having researched and evaluated all of the potential options based on the experience the person had. It also dealt with the question of the hours that were able to be worked together with the salary that might reasonably be expected, and the timeframe within which this was likely to be achieved. It was a really useful report that ultimately led to the parties being able to find a way forward." Louisa Whitney, LKW Family Mediation
