Pam Jenkinson, Life Change Strategist

Why should you choose to be coached by me from amongst so many other life-coaches?

My own experiences have formed the basis of my interest in coaching.  I have experienced several career changes, “retired”, and then set up my own company.  I know the importance of having clarity of vision and working in harmony with my values and beliefs.

I cared for my husband after he had a series of mini-strokes, and I have lost loved-ones, so I  know the turbulent rainbow of emotions which can be experienced.

Life is full of challenges.  They are different for each of us.  The key to contentment is in being able to choose responses which give positive results.

pam-jenkinson-finals-28-2I worked in the UK pensions industry for over 30 years, in various capacities.  My last role, as a Client Relationship Manager took me all over the UK, talking with Boards, Committees, employers and their staff.  I saw that although  financial advice was available, there was no assistance offered to retirees for finding a new direction and identity.

After “retirement” you could look forward to possibly another 30 to 40 years of activity.  Retirement is becoming simply another career change opportunity for many, especially if retirement income fails to live up to expectations.

I have a BA in Accounting and Finance from Heriot-Watt University.  I gained a post graduate certificate in Mid-Life, Pre-Retirement &Life Planning, from Life Academy in association with Surrey University, which emphasised the advantages of facilitated learning and effective coaching.

I am a Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro-Linguist Programming), certified by INLPTA (International NLP Trainers Association) and a member of ANLP (The Association for NLP).  I am also an Associate Member of the Association for Coaching (AMAC).

In February 2017, I passed the Chartered Institute of Insurance’s R04 examination on “Pensions and Retirement Planning”.  I ensure that I maintain a professional level of relevent retirement-related knowledge.

Since becoming a coach I have enjoyed assisting clients in making all sorts of life-changes, not only people thinking about retirement.  I apprecaite the diversity of the areas that my clients bring to me.  I feel very privileged to be granted their confidence and trust.  Take a look at some of my feedback from clients.

I continue to expand my coaching  skills and knowledge by creating new processes, reading, writing books and blogs, and collaborating with colleagues.  This enables me to deliver an effective, bespoke and inspirational service to my clients.

Stuart Jenkinson, 3RO Technical Director

My husband, Stuart, provides support as the 3RO Technical Director.

Stuart is a former Health and Safety Manager, who has recently undertaken his own mid-life career-break after a series of mini-strokes.

He is taking some time to explore what’s next for him.

I am honoured and excited to be accompanying him on his journey.
