Fearless Careers

Want to feel clear & confident in your STEM career?

Ever fear waking up in 10 years thinking “what have I done with my life?”

Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, uncertain, or like something’s missing in your job, Fearless Careers helps you build confidence, get clear in your path and gives you the tools to make it happen.

I know what it’s like…

Like you I wanted a fulfilling career where I could make an impact, but instead I felt frustrated, lost and lacking confidence. I knew things needed to change, but fear of failure, overwhelm and anxiety held me back.

Now I spend my days doing work that’s completely aligned with me. I wake up every day feeling a deep sense of purpose, confidence and energy I never knew existed.  I feel clear and confident about my path and whatever gets thrown at me. 

I don’t say all this to brag, I say it because I want you to know:

1- I know what you’re going through and where you’re at

2- I can help you to untangle the confusion & uncertainty to feel clearer and confident in your career AND give you the tools to stay that way

3- I can help you figure out your direction, boost your motivation to take action and develop a plan going forward.

And I can do all of this because I’ve been there. Over many years I’ve learnt how to move from struggle to fulfillment & positive action!


Fearless careers is a 6 week 1-1 and group coaching program (held online) for a limited number of people working in STEM related industries, that transforms your confidence and clarity so you can create the career & life YOU want on YOUR terms. The program focuses on three areas:


To have a fulfilling career and life you first need to know WHAT you want, what might be holding you back and what currently isn’t working. Through 1-1 coaching with Hayley and carefully crafted activities, Fearless Careers helps you get crystal clear in WHAT you want, WHY you want it and HOW this aligns with the different paths, opportunities and choices available to you.


Do you ever fear failure, worry you’ll be “found out” or feel anxious about managing change? Career paths can be overwhelming, stressful and messy, particularly when you face negativity and knock backs. Fearless Careers helps you strengthen your mindset, build resilience, incorporate balance so you don’t burn out and improve your confidence. Learn how to manage the negative inner monologues, fear, self criticism and second guessing yourself, to be the badass you really are.


To make things happen you need to take action. Fearless Careers isn’t just about reflection, it’s about moving forward. In the program you’ll uncover the actions you can take now to get the results you’re looking for, plus you’ll develop a 1 year plan. Instead of continuing 2020 alone and with uncertainty, you’ll have Hayley right next to you cheering you on.

Over the years I’ve met many people working in STEM who dream of making a difference to people’s lives. Yet they suffer with lack of confidence, fear of failure fear, confusion and overwhelm. Maybe you’re one of these people, facing self-doubt and knock-backs every day, or maybe you’re fine where you are but feel something’s “missing”.

I use my experience to help people like you, to feel empowered, confident and clear about your path, so you can move forward and create a career & life on your own terms.


The program involves:

1- Five Structured Modules – Across the six weeks we’ll cover five different modules to bring you clarity, resilience and confidence in your career path. You’ll receive a weekly workbook with activities to complete, which are a balance of reflection based questions and logical, evidence based tools.

2- Group Coaching Sessions – Each week there’ll be a group coaching and Q&A session of 1.5 hours. This is when we’ll discuss what came up for you in the weekly activities, share challenges and celebrate wins. The group number will be small and intimate to ensure everyone has a chance to contribute. If you’re shy or group-work makes you nervous don’t worry, the group sessions are incredibly relaxed and friendly, you’ll be supported and it’s a brilliant opportunity to meet others! Sometimes a small leap is all it takes to change your life!

3- One to one coaching – we’ll have two 1-1 coaching sessions together of 1 hour. This is when we can dive further into what comes up for you in the activities. I love these 1-1 sessions as it’s brilliant working closely together. This is something not all group programs offer!

BONUSES worth over £700!

Included in the program you’ll also get….

– Access to my coaching alumni group once the program ends, where you can ask questions and connect with other members. I also host a number of group workshops a year to help you stay on track.

– Follow up from me over email after 3 months and 6 months to help you continue your journey.

By the end of the program you’ll have:

1 – A clearer purpose – understand what truly drives you, and how you want to show up in the world.

2- Confidence and clarity in your career direction – you’ll have narrowed down your ideas and options and figured out your next steps.

3- The ability to look at your future in a more relaxed, calm and empowered way – leave feelings of anxiety and the need to control everything behind.

4- A plan for moving forward – you’ll identify a vision for yourself, core goals and steps to achieve them.

5 – Tools to help you manage self-doubt, imposters syndrome and anxiety – you’ll have the power to let go so you can rise up and make your dreams happen

6- A new found resilience and confidence in yourself – this program will help you feel like “you” again. If you’ve been struggling or are in a challenging place, Fearless Careers will lift you up and help you unleash your inner powerful badass!

7- A toolbox of techniques to help you along your journey – You won’t just have a plan, you’ll also have tools to help you implement the plan.

6- Activities and teachings that you can use as a future resource – You’ll be able to keep the activities and teachings forever, as a resource to always look back on.

Each week I send program members a fun, easy to consume workbook with activities and teachings, that you can work through at your own pace. We’ll also have weekly one-one coaching calls to chat through anything that came up for you, and this is where the fully personalised approach comes in. These coaching calls are 100% about YOU and depending on what we chat about and what you need, I may give you specific activities to do. 

A key part of the program is also the community of like-minded people. If you enjoy group work, you can take part in group brainstorming sessions.  Previous members have said it was a great way to learn from each other, and to feel understood from people going through similar experiences.  The group really is a wonderful way to feel inspired but also to stay accountable.

Let me be clear. This is NOT a “get rich quick” scheme. It’s a program for those who want to inspire others, make a difference and lead a life with purpose.  It will take you through the brain fog to find clarity, help you understand your values to develop a strong plan and set you up to make it happen. 


If you work in a STEM related role and want to build a career on your own terms, where your work aligns with you and you feel resilient & confident in your path, Fearless Careers is right for you.  Members usually feel one of the following:


Feeling like you’re on a daily treadmill with no direction? Working everyday with little purpose or clarity is exhausting. You may not hate your job, in fact, sometimes you may even like it. But if you have a small voice in your head saying “Do I really want to do this for the rest of my life?” then Fearless Careers is for you.


Feeling trapped, overwhelmed frustrated or lacking spark? It may be you’ve been mistreated at work, you feel unsupported or you just don’t enjoy your job.   Fearless Careers will give you clarity, lift you up and move you from struggle to empowered, so you can craft a career you truly want.


Feeling like something is missing at work? It may be you feel ready for a change, or you’ve not even thought about it. Either way, you may worry whether changing jobs is risky. Fearless Careers will help you figure out what you want, build resilience and take positive steps forward to creating a career where you feel fulfilled.

Who is this not for?

What our members have in common is their understanding that results require dedication. This program is NOT for people looking for a quick easy fix. Gaining clarity is not something you can get overnight, otherwise you’d already be there!

So if you’re willing to take action to make things happen, this program is for you.

Can I hear from past members?

There’s no way I could get to where I am now without going through this program. Looking back at me before the program, I wouldn’t ever have guessed the amount of progress I’ve made. It’s changed my whole outlook on my career and I don’t totally dread going into work every day! 4-weeks-ago me was in such a horrendous place with motivation, drive, ambition, but that has all been completely turned on its head. I’m excited where I can take my career, and really believe that I can do it. That in itself would have been impossible for me before this!

I’m Hayley Loren. An award winning engineer turned presenter and coach.

I went from feeling lost and frustrated with no confidence, to speaking on stage in front of thousands of people. I’ve spoken at New Scientist Live, appeared on BBC Earth’s How It’s Built and now I use my experience to help other engineers.

I believe that whether or not you stay in engineering, you’re a creative problem solver who can inspire others and make an impact in the world. You can feel confident and empowered to do great things, without sacrificing your health & wellbeing and I’m here to help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is all about helping you overcome obstacles you’re facing, so you can get to where you want to be in life. Whether that’s figuring out a career that aligns with your passions, being able to feel confident in your engineering job or knowing what to do when a major change has happened like job loss. Coaching has some similarities to mentoring in that I’m here to support you, but with coaching it is focused on results.

How will you coach me?

I’m here as your no bullshit cheerleader. Supporting you, listening to you and cheering you on whilst also being direct and honest. Past members have said my approach is friendly, energetic and positive.

Will the coaching be formal?

No! My style of coaching is very informal, relaxed and friendly.

How much time will it take?

On average it’s about 3-4 hours a week, with a break week to help you. Our one-one calls will be an hour and then the workbook will take you about 3 hours to complete if you want to make the most out of it. This isn’t a quick and easy fix, the program does require dedication, and this is why it works! The mixture of one-one coaching, activities and group sessions will leave you feeling empowered and confident about your future. Let me ask you this, how much time over the past few years have you spent thinking about what you should do? And how much time have you spent saying “I don’t know”, or feeling crappy because you second guess yourself?  By investing time now in this program, you’re saving time down the line. Also whilst 3-4 hours might sound like a lot, previous members have managed to fit this into their working weeks well and say they look forward to the calls and activities.

Will I actually benefit from the coaching?

Whilst I can’t guarantee specific outcomes, I know from past members that the coaching has exceptional benefits. Of course it’s important that you’re also dedicated, because like with anything, the more you put in, the more you get out. Instead of me telling you how you can benefit, take a look at what real members say!

How many people will be on the program?

I like to keep the group small and intimate so I can work with you closely and provide a personalised experienced.

When will the calls be?

Group calls will be held at a time that suits everyone and with 1-1 calls I’m flexible! I’m happy to have our calls anytime between 8am and 8pm Mon-Fri. You can also reschedule 1-1 calls if you give me 24hours notice.

What if I can’t make one of the group coaching calls?

To get the most out of the program it’s important that you show up for every group call. For confidential reasons and to maintain the feeling of a safe space I don’t record the calls so there won’t be a playback option. At the beginning of the program we’ll find a day and time that works for everyone and we’ll commit to that.

Will it be like therapy or counselling?

Absolutely not.  Therapy and counselling focus on your deep feelings and the past, they try to uncover pain points. Whereas coaching is all about moving forwards through a mix of reflection, evidence based tools and action.  We’ll be focusing on identifying what the next steps are for you and how to do them. If pain points come up of course we can touch on them like you would with a friend, but I’m not a therapist so I’ll always recommend that you speak with someone else if it’s needed.  I like to keep our sessions full of energy and positivity – they’re a very different vibe to therapy!

What will I need to do?

Turn up and complete the activities and challenges to the best of your ability! All I can ask of you is that you’re dedicated to doing your best. That means doing something that you say you’ll do, showing up for our phone calls and focusing during the time we have together.

I’m worried about the outcome of the coaching– will it mean completely upending my life and starting again?

No! Unless you really want to.  I had this same fear when I realised I didn’t enjoy what I was doing, I thought it meant everything I’d done up to this point was a total waste of time. BUT, the reality is that with any job and degree you get lots of transferable skills. For a lot of people, existing jobs and education act as a stepping stone towards what they want to do.  In the coaching program you’ll be coming up with your OWN 1 year plan, that suits YOU. The purpose is to give you clarity so you can see your future with confidence. And remember, I’ve got your back here. I’ve been through all this before so throughout the program I’ll be hear to support you.

What happens once the program has finished?

If you fully commit to the program, by the end you’ll have a basic one year plan and clear steps to take you forward. It will then be up to you to follow your plan and make things happen! The program gives you lots of tools to help you continue with your journey. To help with accountability I’ll check-in with you by email after 1 month and 3 months.

What’s your refund and cancellation policy?

Fearless Careers is a live coaching program where you get one-to-one coaching with Hayley Loren, workbooks with activities and a community of like minded people. We are committed to helping you gain clarity and confidence in your career. This takes an extraordinary amount of work and dedication, and we want you to be as equally committed so you can receive the full benefits and make a difference in your life.
