How does it work?
“My coaching sessions were an invaluable support as I transitioned back to work. I wanted to focus my sessions on how I phased back into work and I honestly believe I wouldn't have found the transition as manageable without this support. Frances gave me some tools to help the transition, help me work efficiently as I changed to 4 days a week and gave me some key things to think about before I went back to work which I wouldn't have thought about previously. Thank you so much for providing such support."
“The Maternity Coach positively enabled me to manage the apprehension I felt about going on maternity leave and how to navigate my return to work. Rachel's approachable, professional and open manner was greatly appreciated. The sessions were structured but also tailored to the things I wanted to discuss. I'm so thankful that my organisation worked with the The Maternity Coach and offered this as part of the maternity package."
“Frances helped me to feel clear and confident about the choices I was making for my career and my family - at a point when I wasn’t sure on the next right move to make! She creates such a warm and open space for conversation and is full of neat exercises, tools and ideas that mean coaching with Frances always feels practical and productive. I’d recommend Frances wholeheartedly!"
"Whilst sceptical at first as I had never had formal coaching before, I found this service a great use at shaping who I was as a career woman after the birth of my twins, and getting me motivated to pursue my career objectives and explore how these had changed with motherhood."
