"As a senior lawyer in a high profile firm, becoming pregnant was somewhat of a novelty to my colleagues. The reassurance that my sessions with my coach gave me has been absolutely invaluable. I was ready to resign and give up on the many years of studying and training but, using her strategies, I am now better equipped to deal with the pressures of combining parenthood with my career as a lawyer. She both soothed and smoothed my return to work and I now look forward with greater confidence to the path ahead."
Senior solicitor, Nabarro LLP
