Empowering career coaching with Oxana Bristowe

Your career is your biggest long-term asset. The days of spending your entire working life with a single employer - who will be responsible for your career, your development, your training, your mentoring and your coaching - are long gone.

These days your career is your responsibility. And that’s great! You can do it much better yourself...and faster...using expert advice and assistance. Longer working lives give bigger returns on your investments in your degree, postgraduate qualification, training and coaching. And not just in terms of money - we need to enjoy our jobs, whatever they might be. The idea of spending our working lives feeling unhappy or unfulfilled is simply unacceptable.  

Our clients share these views. Often they find it hard to initially express exactly what they seek. Except that they know they need to “move on” from where they are. They want to progress - take more responsibility, make a bigger contribution, fulfil their potential, grow as people, help to develop others, be happier, escape from a longstanding stagnating situation etc.

Example of results our clients have achieved


●    Design a career path which aligns their skills, talents and experience
●    Win a better job with their current employer
●    Win a long-desired promotion
●    Get the perfect job with another employer after a long period of drifting without progress
●    Make a great success of their next appointment


Does that sound too good to be true? It is what we deliver. Oxana has achieved this for clients in many parts of the world from different backgrounds and cultures, for example from Australia, India, France, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia and the UK.  

There are many spin-off benefits from this. Increased confidence. Inner knowledge of “what you offer”, clarity on “what you really want” and “what you deserve”. A greater ability to project yourself, to really stand out - whatever your job might be. Did we mention happiness? That too. The very best part is when clients call in with news of their successes and their great results!

Why work with Oxana?


The key reason is that I deliver results. I studied International Human Resources Management for my MBA, I am a qualified coach and I have more than 20 years experience in executive search and career coaching. I want to empower my clients to find careers that they love where they can apply all of who they are and use all of their talents and gifts, help them to find happiness and fulfilment!

CRESS is conducted by Oxana via Skype, FaceTime or similar video link. You will have the opportunity to share in confidence with her your current career situation and discuss how you can achieve your goals going forward.

Case studies of how we helped our coaching clients to achieve success

Career Coaching


A female executive was looking to secure a position which she had been seeking for a long time.  She knew what she wanted but lacked confidence in her ability to find her dream job. We worked with her for a short period of time addressing her lack of self-belief, strengthening her awareness in her core skills and experience, and helping her to clearly communicate her unique offerings to potential employers. We also helped her with job-search strategy and making introductions to the contacts which we have in the industry to assist her with her goal. After only 2 months she secured her dream job.

A female client in her early 30s wanted to change her career path and move to a different industry. She had a very strong vision about her long-term goal but she did not know where to start or how to set herself on the right track to achieve her vision. We worked with her to identify her transferable skills and experience, helped her to get clarity on what she was good at, developed a career plan by breaking it down to some short-term and medium term milestones, and helped her to align her mindset with what she needed to do first. After 6 months of intensive work she secured her first job in the new industry and she is very excited about her career and achieving her vision.

Oxana is a highly experienced senior leader executive coach who hugely helped me define and reach my goals at a cornerstone of my career. Looking at what I enjoyed most doing in my work and what I was therefore best at, she helped me define my aspirations and go for it. She takes a really positive and practical approach to reaching your goals building on your confidence and strengths. Thanks to her I went beyond just becoming a 'head of' but am now a committee member of a number of industry associations.

I really enjoyed working with her and would recommend Oxana to any executives looking for some coaching.

Oxana is one of the most professional International Executive Search experts I have had the opportunity of working with. She combines her business acumen ability to communicate on the international stage. She is highly regarded and a treasure to work with. She is always respectful and her candidate care is impressive. She manages teams well and provides excellent reports for her clients. If you have Oxana on your team you are sure to achieve, actually an outstanding reputation. Oxana would make a fantastic Resourcing Director of any corporate Energy company until then I truly wish her well in her role. I would hire her immediately if the opportunity arose without any hesitation.
