phd coaching

The PhD journey is a complex, sometimes confusing one. Often, it’s not just the work or the research itself that is difficult but all the other things around and in between.

That’s where I come in – as a coach, I’m here help you untangle all the different elements of your PhD and life, so that you can do your best work in the most sane, happy, peaceful way possible for you.

I can work with you to address issues such as:

  • Finding your best work groove and working practices
  • Finding a healthy work-life balance
  • Making sense of expectations in the PhD
  • Setting goals for short and long-term
  • Dealing with stress in your PhD work
  • Finding and sustaining motivation
  • Developing helpful writing and research practices
  • Time management and getting everything done
  • Improving your presentation and public engagement skills
  • Developing your extra-curricular skills, activities and portfolio
  • Developing confidence / tackling imposter syndrome

All my coaching sessions are conducted online via a Zoom call, and I offer various coaching packages. Please get in touch to find out more.

To book a discovery call to find out how we can work together, please send me a message – I’d love to meet you!

“[Jamie’s] motivation and drive to support students on their PhD journey has enabled her to plan and run a series of online workshops that have enhanced student wellbeing and sense of community, during an otherwise challenging time.”
~ Francina Clayton, Researcher Developer, University of York

“Jamie was extremely helpful when I was at crossroads in my academic career. She has given me very practical and honest advice regarding my research journey and about choosing the right supervisor. Her ‘starter-kit’ to starting my research path has been very valuable and I’m absolutely excited that I’ll soon be starting my Masters. Could not have done it without her encouragement and mentorship.”
