Having mentors or coaches in any profession is becoming increasingly important and although through many training positions such as foundation or core training support is there for many trainees, many younger dentists who work only in practice or in large units are seeking more one on one development... especially when it comes to competitive processes such as national recruitment for training posts or portfolio development for associate positions.
I am hoping to bring my experience developing my own career path and portfolio to help others; with experience working in many fields of clinical and non-clinical dentistry I want to help people be the best dentists they can be and to find their career in dentistry fulfilling!
So currently I am offering:
Interview practice - for foundation training, core training, speciality training, associate positions and other dental interviews
Careers coaching - development of your career map, 5 year goals and exploring your own professional development
Portfolio development - essential for speciality training and the latter core training years. Also important for competitive associate interviews, how do you make yourself stand out?
CV development - CV writing sessions, how to structure your CV for different positions, cover letter writing
Mentoring - one on one mentoring tailoured to your development goals
Presentation training - trouble tackling nailing that presentation for a conference or at work? One on one practice and tips.
Level 2 accreditation mentoring - development of your portfolio for upcoming Special Care & Paediatric Level 2 accreditation
PG Diploma in Special Care Dentistry mentoring - preparation for examination/essay and application support
Coaching sessions can be face to face if you are London based or via Skype/Zoom if more convenient.
Different packages are available depending on your developmental needs - please contact me if you want further information!
''I found the session really useful and motivating. Natalie was very friendly and allowed me to lead the session and directing/giving advice where appropriate. She also followed up with an email of useful information and this helped me formulate an action plan to help achieve my career goals. It was really nice to chat to her as I felt like she was really invested in actually coaching and my needs. Thanks again!"
"Excellent coaching sessions. Natalie has been approachable and very insightful. The sessions were individualised and catered towards my exact needs. They were well structured and well put together. These sessions have helped install a little more confidence and helped me grow as a foundation dentist than the beginning. These coaching sessions are well worth the money and have helped me understand how to approach my CV, my portfolio and as well as prepare well for my SJTs. An overall amazing experience and thoroughly enjoyed the coaching sessions. Natalie would help me address other questions with regards to other aspects of Dentistry and help guide me in the right direction. I would definitely recommend a coaching session with Natalie."
