About Jo

Joanne Ostler
Life coach specialising in careers
Professionally Credentialed Coach with the International Coach Federation







Better career, better life, better world.

That’s my “why”: I want to help people create better careers, lives, and a better world too.  As a life coach specialising in careers, I help clients directly, usually one on one and in small groups. I offer clients a safe place to be really honest. Sounds simple, and it is, but it’s amost impossible to do on your own, and it’s a missing and critical ingredient in many people’s lives. The majority of my clients are mid-life professional people looking for something more or dealing with difficult career and life stuff. They’re smart and capable people, but needing someone to talk with to get clarity and insight and plan of action.

I keep up with the latest ideas, tools and strategies. I use a neuroscience coaching based approach, and often introduce neuroscience tools and models.

I’m a professionally credentialed coach (PCC) status with the International Coach Federation (ICF).

I look forward to hearing from you 🙂 Jo
