how can I help 


If you've ever found yourself in need of direction, needing help with a work related issue, found yourself stuck in your career with a fear of uncertainty, or in a career that doesn't reflect who you truly are, then I can help you.

Not only have I walked this journey myself, but I have helped others to overcome barriers and work towards the career of their dreams.


Whether you are at the beginning of your career, in the middle, or near retirement, I can help you to make your alarm clock into an opportunity clock! 

Hambleton Career Counselling is versatile, positive and solution-focused. By virtue of a proven process my service enables people to recognise and utilise their resources in order to make career related decisions and manage career related issues.


I strive to inspire growth, fulfilment, satisfaction, personal development, and success by focusing on the positive aspects of the individual. Ultimately, I help people to identify what they truly want, and help them work towards their goals in life, something I have successfully done myself.

The service I provide can benefit anyone looking to develop, not just those who are struggling. It can help people who are already doing well to do even better. 

Some examples of who my service is suitable for:

  • People who want to succeed in their career; who want to be the best version of themselves, not what others think they should be. 

  • Ex-armed forces personnel transitioning to civilian life.

  • Students entering the world of work in need of direction.

  • Professional people working for organisations that are going through change, or are experiencing changes in their role.

  • People too busy in their work to think strategically about their careers.

  • People who feel they have plateaued or are feeling stuck, wondering what they should do next.

  • People who want to know if a promotion or management is really for them.

  • People who feel stressed in their role.

  • People who are thinking about leaving their current employer and don't know what to do next.

  • People who want the time to change career direction.

In addition to my career counselling service, I can also offer: Interview and CV coaching, help with job searching and networking, and 1 to 1 martial arts based confidence and resilience coaching.

Details of my main career counselling programme can be found below, which can be purchased as a package following a diagnostic meeting, or as hourly appointments depending on your needs.

Read what my clients say

"Lee provides a phenomenal service from beginning to end. His genuineness, professionalism and passion are apparent throughout, making the whole process easier and more comfortable. Having just graduated university, I was at a daunting and anxious phase in my life. With Lee’s collaborative approach I was able to gain the clarity and confidence I needed at this time to truly make the most of it. On a more personal note, with Lee’s help I was able to explore what values I held most dear and begin to understand myself more. I noticed that I carried myself better which improved my general well-being in a wider context. I couldn’t recommend Lee too much and would encourage anyone to undergo his brilliant service."
