Advice on mapping out a purposeful career & life

Hi, I'm Oli Page

Having navigated my own life and career changes, I’ve learned a lot.

Although I started out in medicine, it soon dawned on me that I wasn’t meant for the path of a doctor. I also came to realise that heading in the wrong direction is almost inevitable in life.

With a little guidance, however, we can rediscover our internal compass, transform ourselves, and find the way to our own unique definitions of meaning and fulfilment.

There are parts of my experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone – the apathy of being disconnected from life. The pain of ending each day defeated and deflated. The hopelessness of looking to the future and not feeling inspired to carry on.

As a physician, I saw people die way before their time. I saw other people get struck down by illnesses in the prime of life. It became impossible not to absorb the undeniable fact that life is short.

I realised there isn’t time to waste doing what you don’t want to do, becoming someone you don’t want to become, or contributing in a way that doesn’t make you come alive.

Our loved ones – and indeed all the people we encounter – need more from us than that. That’s why I do what I do.

Any journey of transformation is an ‘inside-out’ phenomenon.

It starts within, the moment you aspire to become someone different. Maybe you want to spend time on work that’s truly meaningful to you, or cultivate an overall sense of purpose in your life.

Whether you’re near the beginning, middle, or end of this journey, I would be honoured to walk alongside you.

Read through the current focus of my client work – if any resonate with you, we might be a great fit for working together:

Where I shine as a coach

If the above scenarios ring true for you, this is how I can help out:

  1. Belief: I’ll believe in you without compromise, especially when you don’t believe in yourself.
  2. Depth: We’ll push beyond surface-level problems, until we hit the insights that could change everything.
  3. Empathy: Self-exploration takes courage – we’ll approach it together with a gentle touch and a spirit of curiosity.
  4. Flexibility: I’ll shift between coach, mentor, sounding board and accountability partner – whatever it takes to keep you moving towards the best version of yourself.
  5. Patience: This type of inner work isn’t a quick-fix – it can take time to slow down and reconnect with yourself. That means I won’t overload you with more homeworks than you need (you’re probably used to overworking).

Are you eligible to work with me?

If you’ve gotten this far, you likely have an idea of whether we’re a good match. But my time limited, and I’m sure yours is too. To be clear, here are 3 challenges I’m not looking to help you with:

  1. Those looking for any job, ASAP. I’m not a traditional career coach who helps with CVs/resumes, interview prep, personal branding, etc. (we can look at that stuff after the higher-level inner work)
  2. Those looking for mostly tactical advice on networking, climbing career ladders, getting promoted, or negotiating raises.
  3. Those looking for someone to take responsibility for their life (or to outsource their thinking).

Booking your complimentary session

If you’d like help uncovering a meaningful path forward, this is how you can get my support, for free.

Each week, I block out a limited number of 90-minute “Complimentary Clarity Sessions”.

Here’s what we’ll focus on during the call:

  • Your story so far
  • What isn’t working for you right now
  • Who you aspire to become

My hope is that you’ll leave the session energised and full of possibility.

At this point, you might be wondering why I’m offering this for free. The answer is: I love doing this.

I love working closely with people and helping them get through significant challenges on their journey.

With so much of our lives dominated by work, the impact can be tremendous.

If after our session we discover there’s mutual fit, and we both feel great about working together longer-term, we can discuss that too.
