Break Through your Barriers

maternity coaching st neots

From preparing to leave your role before the baby arrives, negotiating the new dynamics on maternity leave, to returning to work and beyond, the Break Through your Barriers programme is designed specifically for women returners to help you reignite your career by breaking through those barriers you have (self imposed or not) and redefining your strengths since becoming a mum. Here are some of the things we could work together on:

Breakthrough 1: Your personal barriers. It is easy to feel like you have forgotten yourself amongst all the roles that you have when you become a mother. The focus here is understanding who you are now and revisiting who you were before and how you have changed since becoming a mum. In addition we will explore those barriers to what you want your new working/family life to be. (This can be done before baby arrives). Specifically we will look at:

  • Values
  • Limiting beliefs
  • Motivation
  • Remembering and rediscovering your sense of self

Breakthrough 2: Reignite your career. Whether you want to return to a previous employer, try something new, start out on your own or something else entirely the focus here is on you choosing the most interesting and realistic options and creating a path which motivates and excites you to take the first step (and then carry on). (This can be done whilst negotiating the new dynamics on maternity leave to returning to work and beyond. ) Here we will work on

  • Redefine your work-life congruence around your new family
  • Work through any emotional changes which may be clouding your thoughts
  • Develop a career which fits into your family schedule and values
  • Build a toolkit of techniques to help you stay calm in those chaotic moments!
  • Communicating your requirements confidently to employers through CVs, applications and interviews.

Charlie has been my coach since the start of what was a very trying time in my life – there were significant changes happening, and many projects that had to be managed simultaneously.

"Working with Charlie kept me clear about where I wanted to focus my energy, what actions I wanted to take and on track, while maintaining my sanity and also getting enough sleep. 

She really helped keep me focussed and grounded during this time of massive transition, to the point that now, I am launching a new business that seems likely to turn over six figures in year one (which I hadn’t planned for and definitely didn’t expect), I am clear about my plans and I am moving forward quickly and clearly.

I can’t recommend Charlie enough.  She’s brilliant." - Suzanne
