Hi, I’m Ruth Hutchins, and I am a Career Coach with a difference!

I’ve developed a curiosity over my 30+ years working in the careers space which has enabled me to observe various patterns that go on in people’s careers, what gets in their way of living their dream career, and have seen how life is always giving us clues as to what our path is.

Many people feel that doing what you love in your career is a fantasy, a dream. Well, it starts with a dream, but it can become a reality! What I know is that we all have a choice, and if you are choosing a stronger alignment in your career with what lights you up, then I’m here to help you turn that into a reality.  

You might already be achieving the success you thought you wanted but still feel like something’s missing.  That’s why you’re here, you have a desire for more.  Life is looking to be lived through you, and we need to pay attention to those signs. If you have a desire for more meaning and purpose in your work, or feel that you want to be making a bigger contribution, let’s go!

I was once where you are, and even now, continue to evolve the work I do as I learn and grow and step up and truly take on my purpose.

I bring more than the twenty-five years of practical career experience I gained in the recruitment industry. Like many of us, life has thrown me my fair share of challenges, sometimes intensely, but I’ve used these as opportunities to expand my consciousness and now share the learnings with others who are ready to take action and walk their path.

The path to finding a fulfilling career and life requires looking back to see what life events have influenced your path. The clues are all there, we just need to know where to look and how to interpret them. There is one caveat, once you have this awareness, you cannot turn your back on it. Once you have set your intention to live your purpose, and get the clarity, you must, at some point, take on the challenge and bring your gifts, talents, knowledge and wisdom to the world. This requires courage, and I’m here to help you.

You may be aware that something isn’t working for you in your career.  Sometimes our bodies talk to us, and try and get our attention that our current path isn’t working for us. Sometimes the same pattern will keep repeating itself and we wonder why things keep happening to us. Sometimes challenges keep coming our way, and we feel that life is a struggle. These are all signs that there is some work to be done.

Our most obvious challenges are hidden from us by our own thinking, directed by our inner beliefs and programs.  We’re masters at it!  Most of the successful people I know are willing to take an honest look at what’s truly going on and work with a coach to see beyond the façade they have built up. Even I continue to work with personal coaches to help me get new perspectives.

If you’ve worked with a coach before, you’ll know it takes commitment and determination from you most of all.  I will guide you along the way to see what’s going on in your career, and how to change it.

My goal for you is that you become more aware of what life is showing you about your career, and have a strong alignment with the path you’re walking.

Gain clarity.  Become unstuck.  Change the world around you. Let go of the past and find the bravery to pursue the life you want.

Whether you’re at a career crossroads or needing inspiration, we will find your career sweet spot and at the same time, you’ll become more connected to your purpose in life, opening up the pathway to healing and understanding in both your own and your family’s lives.

Creating Healthy Career Brand Pillars - What I Stand For

Empowerment & Self-Awareness

I will help you get back on your path in life by joining the dots from past life lessons and empowering you to be your best self.

Integrity & Authenticity

Integrity and authenticity are vital for a successful career. I know that some issues you might face are intensely personal, challenging to deal with, and tricky to identify. I will always act in partnership with you with honesty, empathy, and respect.

Purpose & Meaning

I believe that everybody has the right and ability to have a happy and fulfilling career. I use my experience and knowledge to support you to achieve this. I advocate for this right, even when you're not a client of ours.


I believe it is possible to have a meaningful, successful, and fulfilling career without jeopardising our personal lives or burning out. I believe that it is possible to be energised, motivated and productive for your entire career.

My Commitment

My commitment is that you leave my programs with increased career clarity, energy and enthusiasm in your career, while improving performance and overall wellbeing. You’re inspired and inspiring. 

My mission is to help you get on your path, and elevate your career performance, fulfillment and wellbeing.

When your career is aligned with your higher purpose your inner genius is unlocked!

My Mission

I'm here to help you elevate your career

As an Engagement and Career Coach, I specialise in working with people to help them elevate their career success & enjoyment while optimising their wellbeing.  After more than 30 years’ experience in the recruitment, career transition and career coaching industries I have supported thousands of people through all phases of their career to step up & embed strategies which enable healthy, sustainable high performance.

My belief is that a career should add to your life, not detract from it, making it essential to align your career with your passion & purpose. I also help people get clear on their value proposition because when you know how you add value, you are valuable.

My process helps clients take an honest look at what’s working and not working in their career and to have a wake up call before they actually have a wake up call! The process is very empowering as I help clients uncover and clear patterns that could be preventing them from reaching their potential, and work with their mindset so that they can have the career that’s congruent with who they are.

My mission is to elevate the performance and enjoyment for people in their career so they can achieve their goals in a sustainable way & have the clarity of thought that keeps them ahead of the competition and achieve the rewards they desire.
