What is strengths based coaching?

Strengths based coaching helps individuals access the skills and tools they have within themselves in order to perform to the best of their ability. It helps individuals discover what their strengths are and how they can use those strengths in order to reach new successes within the workplace.

Coaching and workshops for parents

Parenthood….you can read all the books in the world and you might feel vaguely prepared for knowing what the first year or so of your child’s life MIGHT be like but *spoiler alert* it’s unlikely to pan out quite like that. It can be the most fulfilling experience you’ll ever put yourself through and some days you’ll get picture perfect moments that you can’t wait to upload into the pixels and share with the (your) world. Other days are tougher and a loneliness can set in that you might not have anticipated. Both of these have been, and are, me. When you bring work into the mix it can bring a variety of experiences – positive and challenging (I use the term ‘work’ loosely because let’s face it, looking after kids is definitely work!).

I work 1:1 with parents preparing to leave work or returning to work after maternity leave, adoption leave, or career breaks – sometimes that return is imminent and for others they begin working with me much further down the line. My clients are normally wanting help with things like confidence, resilience, challenging conversations they’re likely to be having and just generally getting to know themselves again.

My work revolves around your strengths – but in this instance it’s not your skills, it’s what energises you. It’s backed up by over two decades of incredible research about the connection between doing more of what you love, your wellbeing and your performance. I also work with businesses who are investing in returners, still through coaching but things like returner programmes, group workshops and line manager support are more common.
