"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."

Testimonials

"As a senior lawyer in a high profile firm, becoming pregnant was somewhat of a novelty to my colleagues. … With my coach’s help, my pathway to maternity leave was smoothed and I felt less panicked about the handover of clients and transactions. Her tips and advice provided me with coping mechanisms to deal with the inevitable questions and to manage the slow-down in work flow prior to the start of my maternity leave. She stayed in touch during my absence from work, but it was upon my return to the office that she became a lifeline in the sea of my self-doubt. The transition from full time mum to full time lawyer was tremendously daunting and the first few weeks were torturous for me, my family and my colleagues alike. 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."
