Coaching support for professional women in leadership roles

Find the Path that’s right for YOU!

It Can Feel Challenging Combining a Career with Motherhood.

  • Since becoming a mother, have your feelings towards your work changed?
  • Do you you find yourself feeling guilty, stressed or overwhelmed by trying to give your 100% at work and home?
  • Perhaps you want to get a promotion or change jobs but are worried about the impact on your family, or your ability to cope? 
  • Perhaps you’re unsure if your current career path or job is still the right one for you and your family?
  • Perhaps you would like to feel more confident about going back to work after maternity leave or a career break?

Only a working mother can truly understand the emotional, physical and logistical challenges of being successful in the workplace while still being the Mum you want to be to your children!

With more and more companies striving for gender diversity at all level of the organisation, and the growing understanding of women’s invaluable contributions to the economy,  there has never been a better time for career-loving mothers to pursue having a fulfilling career and raising fantastic children.  However, this doesn’t always mean the way forward seems clear and it doesn’t always mean the journey feels easy!

Whether you want to re-ignite your current career path to achieve greater seniority or influence, re-define your professional roadmap for greater fulfilment or balance or re-connect with your unique capabilities and strengths to give you the confidence to make your next move, together we can work on defining what ‘success’ really means to you personally, and achieving your unique professional goals and unfold your full potential as both a successful professional woman and an incredible mother.

Examples of what our work together may cover:

  • getting absolute clarity on the career path that’s right for you
  • formulating your short-term, medium-term and long-term career goals
  • identifying your ideal role and evaluating career opportunities
  • handling career ‘dilemmas’ such as re-deployment or redundancy
  • planning and managing career changes (e.g. new role, job or industry)
  • managing personal change (e.g. going on or returning from maternity leave)
  • preparing you and the family for professional relocation (domestic and international relocation/expatriation)
  • maximising confidence when returning to work after maternity leave or a career break
  • preparing for interviews, key meetings and presentations (improving technique and personal impact)

I work with my clients one-to-one and offer a range of VIP career coaching packages.

What my clients say…

Fresh from the VIP session I am buzzing with new ideas. New in the sense of a fresh rejuvenating of aspects of me that were inherent within, but had been easily left to the side, discarded or written off as not possible.

Nicola’s calm and warm approach facilitated an open session to thoroughly explore deep ideas, supported by reflective recapping and mirroring responses that were guided by her acute listening and observational skills. Nicola created a safe environment where I felt able to share ideas that I would normally keep quite close to my chest, and I found [the sessions] to be invaluable in the ground that we were able to cover.

Patterns were seen, golden nuggets were found and clarity expressed in those wonderful ‘it’s staring at me in the face’ moments. In a sense, Nicola has helped me get back onto the right path, reconfirm my purpose within, and look with clarity at the next steps to bring my dreams into reality. I look forward with renewed focus to this transitional time, and being able to look back and say: ‘I did it!’.

I recommend Nicola, with her warm personality and professional talents, highly.
