A Bit About Me
Hi, I’m Ruth Morgan, and I am a Career Coach with a difference!
What if I told you that every negative thought you have about your job impacts your mental and physical wellbeing? Would that make you look at your career differently?
As a Career Wellbeing Coach, I help people navigate their careers to optimise their wellbeing and success. To achieve this, we need to find out what makes you tick. Ask what lights you up, and what gets in your way by identifying and overcoming your blind spots – we all have them.
You might already be achieving the success you thought you wanted but still feel like something’s missing. That’s why you’re here. Meaning and purpose in your work have been hard to maintain, or the success you really want frustratingly just keeps eluding you.
I was once where you are.
I spent more than twenty-five years in the recruitment industry and enjoyed most of my time there, however I had an inner knowing that there was more for me to be achieving on this planet. I started looking in the market but wasn’t successful as there were candidates who were more experienced for the jobs I was applying for. So I embarked upon a different approach! Instead of trying to fit myself into an advertised position, I looked at my skills and experience through a different lens and created my Dream Job Description and within 3 weeks had secured that role! Now I regularly use manifestation principles and help my clients to deconstruct their skillsets to find and obtain their dream jobs.
I’d made steps in the right direction, things were feeling more in sync, but I’d had a desire to be my own boss for years and it wasn’t getting any closer. I wanted it, but I was busy with life as a single parent and never seemed to make the time to pursue it. The motivation came when I learnt the impact of values and got clear on mine: Growth, Careers, and Health. I felt the excitement come to life inside me instantly and I was able to bring my vision to life launching Creating Healthy Careers within 6 months.
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.
It began for me, as so many of our patterns do, in my childhood, when I witnessed my Father, who was frustrated and unhappy in his employment, create an unhealthy and stressful environment at home. As a child I just wanted to know why he couldn’t be happy at work and that began my curiosity. I also observed the impact it took on my mum’s health, and without realising it at the time, it seeded my interest in psychosomatics – the mind/body connection. In a profound way, these experiences set the foundations for my desire to guide people to avoid the same unhealthy career choices for themselves and their families.
You may be aware that something isn’t working for you in your career. Our bodies talk to us, but we often don’t listen, instead choosing to listen to that little voice inside which is holding us back. Many of my clients have experienced health breakdowns because they’ve ignored the signs and not taken action. When you ignore messages your own body takes over to desperately try to get your attention.
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.
If you’ve worked with a coach before, you’ll know it takes commitment and determination from you most of all. I don’t give you all the answers, I guide you along the way to see what’s going on in your career, observe as you take action that you’ve never been able to take before and cheer as you get out of your own way and shine!
My goal for you is that you become more in control of creating your reality.
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 success 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.
Our Brand Pillars - What I Stand For
Empowerment and self-awareness
Integrity and authenticity
Purpose and meaning
My commitment is that you leave our 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 elevate your career performance, fulfillment and wellbeing so you can achieve the success you want in a sustainable way and have the energy, stamina and clarity of thought that sets you ahead of the competition.
I'm here to elevate your career
As an Engagement and Career Wellbeing Coach, I specialise in working with people to help them elevate their career success & enjoyment while optimising their wellbeing. After almost 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 peel back the layers to reconnect their career with their passion and purpose, 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.
My coaching values
Here are the values I live and work by, to help guide your decision-making when considering me as your coach.
Truth and honesty
Only with truth and honesty, no matter how difficult it is, can somebody find their path in life.
Courage and inner strength
I understand that change can be difficult, and so I take a gentle and nurturing approach to achieving it. It takes courage, inner strength, and wisdom to be honest with yourself and find your inner truth. From this truth comes the inner strength to do what is needed to achieve your goals.
I strive to be the trusted ally that can sometimes see you with more clarity than you see yourself. We all have blind spots and get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns. I can support you to spot these patterns and provide thoughtful and experienced advice to help you make positive changes.
Edgy and provocative
I challenge the status quo and provide unique perspectives. I am not your average career coach. I work with the whole person, warts and all, and use techniques that you won’t find in HR manuals to support you to become your best self.
