Helping frustrated, professional, working mums get the career they always thought they would have, before the kids came along.

Why you should be interested in working with me

You’ll be interested in working with me if your family life is great, but you didn’t expect that balancing home with career would be such hard work.


Or that YOU would wind up doing most of it!


You aren’t quite sure what happened to your career after you had a family, but this isn’t what you thought it would be.


You would like the career you always thought you’d have, please!

But you don’t know where to start or how to change things.

And there’s a little voice in your head that wonders if it is too late now. Or whether you have what it takes any more.


And besides, you have so much to do, doing all the juggling of home and work and being the person that always has to hold the whole lot together.  How would you make room for more?


What about your family? You don’t want to destabilise your family. So you stay where you are. Stuck.


I can help you.


First, I will give you the tools to redress the balance in the home.


I will be frank: until you get that sorted out, very little at work will change.


Once you are able to make some space for your career, I will help you regain your voice and influence in the workplace:

 

  • to be visible

  • to become once again a target for career development.


How much is it?


I offer a range of packages, and we could work together to determine which is most suitable for you.


For a free initial conversation, to find out more, a link to my diary is below.

We could talk about working together further if that is what you would like, but sometimes a simple conversation can make a difference. 

Coaching Packages

1:1 Packages

As the first step is usually to redress the balance in the home, I offer an introductory programme of 3 sessions to focus on this.
 

Bronze Programme: From Frazzled to Focused
3 sessions £550
The reason we start here is that, unless you can change the situation that is taking all your mental energy (being the one holding all the strings at home), then it will be nearly impossible to make significant change to your career.

We only have so much energy and bandwidth!


I offer an initial 3 sessions package to support you to overcome that barrier of division of labour in the home so you are ideally placed to take on re-energising your career.
You can then decide whether you would like to purchase further sessions to make your career goals a reality.


In between sessions I’m available by email and WhatsApp within 48hrs so you are fully supported throughout. And so that you can celebrate your achievements with someone as they happen!
If you have any questions, or if you just want a chat, a link to my diary is below.
If you want to work with me further, we can explore that too but sometimes a simple conversation is all you need.

 

Longer programmes

Often clients commit to a longer programme from the start, giving them a real opportunity to dive into working towards goals inside and outside the home.
A coaching programme with me covers some core topics and areas, but with space to tailor to the needs of the individual.
A programme is not a tick box of topics, but the flow usually looks something like this.

1:1 and Group Programmes cont'd

Silver Programme:
6 sessions £950

In between sessions I’m available by email and WhatsApp within 48 hours so you are fully supported throughout. And so that you can celebrate your achievements with someone as they happen.

 

A coaching programme with me covers some core topics and areas, but with space to tailor to the needs of the individual.
 

The topics that many clients are drawn to include:

  • Going beyond your comfort zone

  • How to improve presence and visibility in the workplace

  • How to talk about achievements without the ick factor

  • What to do about that little voice in your head holding you back

Gold Programme:
12 sessions £1750

The gold programme is an opportunity to go even deeper into the learning and techniques and be supported through both changing your home and career over a longer period.


As with the Silver programme, between sessions I’m available by email and WhatsApp so you are fully supported throughout. And so that you can celebrate your achievements as they happen. However, Gold access means a response within 24 hours.
The outcomes my clients gain from 1:1 coaching are outstanding. Some clients have got their dream job. Others have learned how to have the conversations to ask for what they want at home and in the workplace – and then achieve it.

Group Coaching

Group Coaching – £395 for 6 sessions
Small Group, Big Results


Over 6 sessions, the group will explore the following topics (or topics decided by the group), supported and coached by me.
 

1 – What does being a professional working mum mean to you? What is the outcome each group member is looking for? Topics covered include: Career/relationships/friendships/health and wellbeing
 

2 – Comfort Zones - How comfortable are you at work? When did you last not know what to do?
 

3 – Being seen and heard in the workplace - What's important for progression at work is being heard and having
influence. This week is about regaining your voice and developing your influence.

 

4 – Self promotion and talking about your achievements - How comfortable are you to talk about your achievements to other people? This will be a practical session that you can put into practice immediately.


5 – Important conversations - What is getting in your way? To make changes, we have to have important
conversations. But we put them off… Not any more!


6 – Crafting your plan and next steps. - A review of progress and crafting a plan to take forward the actions and
learning.


As part of the group, as well as 6x2hr sessions, the group will have a
private Whatsapp group where we can share progress and achievements
or can ask for more support.
