Empowering Career Returners

Updated: May 1

UPDATE: THIS PROGRAMME IS NOW FULL! IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN FUTURE PROGRAMMES DO GET IN TOUCH.


This photo was taken on my first day back as a management consultant after a 10 year hiatus back in 2019. You can just about see the worry lines on my forehead 😂. Apart from first day nerves, my feet were probably already hurting after being too used to flipflops and trainers for so many years!


Are you considering a return to your career after dedicating several years to care for your family? Feeling like you’ve lost touch with your professional self? Join me on the pilot of my new group coaching programme!


When I was contemplating a return to my professional career, I had many doubts:


“I don’t want to waste my qualifications and experience, but I've lost my confidence.”

“Who will want to employ me, I’ve been out of the industry for so long?”

“I'm not the person that I was: Who am I now, and who do I want to be?”

“Where do I start?”

“ Why is this so difficult?”


I was fortunate to find a route to return that supported me through a dedicated returnship programme. However my experience, coupled with noticing how few mid-life mothers were in senior positions the workplace, prompted me to choose the topic for my Organisational Psychology research project: "Exploring the factors that enabled the successful return to work of women in professional services". My research findings included coaching, role models and support systems as key enablers of self-efficacy to return. To this end, I'm launching a complementary pilot group coaching programme for 5-6 women contemplating a return to their careers, starting on Monday 13th May 2024:


Are you (or is someone you know), contemplating a return to your professional career? Please forward on to friends, family and colleagues who might be interested. Numbers are limited, so don't delay!
