I’m Liz Barry, a life and career coach based in Auckland, New Zealand. I love helping people create their own path to a career that’s fulfilling, meaningful, and right. Feeling like you’re in the wrong job, or living a life that doesn’t reflect who you truly are, can be overwhelming. It can leave you feeling lost, unfulfilled, and unsure where to go next. That’s why I’ve spent 20 years helping people create the future they want. So they can step forward into it with confidence and courage.
Two decades ago, a life-altering event gave me the push I needed to leave my job in clinical research, and forge the path to career development and coaching. At the time, the leap felt olympic-swimming-pool-sized. But I’ve never looked back. Working through challenges of my own has given me empathy, intuition, and the innate ability to connect with people on a deeper and more meaningful level. That’s why today, thousands of clients, countless career workshops, and four beautiful kids later, I’m still just as dedicated to helping people create the career path that’s right for them.
