one to one coaching and mentoring
For women who prefer to work with me one to one – allowing us to focus more specifically on your challenges in a shorter period of time - I offer a coaching and mentoring programme that can be tailored to your needs.
When we work together my clients see new possibilities open up for continuing careers they love while leading a more balanced life.
I’ll help you challenge limiting beliefs and explore new options for living your biggest life. As your mentor I’ll also be holding a vision for the greatest possibilities for your life. I’ll support you to hold that same vision for yourself and to grow into it.
Specifically you will gain:
- Access to all the expertise I’ve acquired over thirty years working in and with the corporate world – saving you time and costly mistakes.
- Clarity around your vision for balanced working and a stronger commitment to making it a reality.
- A well crafted and tailored business case for negotiating the type of flexibility you need - based on a flexible working arrangement that suits both you and your employer.
- A comprehensive strategy for managing the transition to the new arrangement and beyond – ensuring your success.
- A personalised audit of the skills you’ll need to grow and develop to become a Balanced Leader.
- Support from the UK’s leading authority on work life balance.
You’ll quickly recoup the investment you’re making as you find yourself able to keep your feet on the career ladder - rather than having to make costly and career limiting compromises.
"I feel I have learned some very simple strategies, small changes for big effect. By implementing some of them already, you have really helped me beyond measure at a really crucial crossroads in both my personal career and private life. The timing of this coaching could not be better and has had a very profound impact – without going overboard I do feel different, am thinking differently but more importantly acting differently to very positive effect in the workplace and at home.

Balanced Leader Bespoke is made up of three modules:
1. Navigating to Balance in Your Job;
2. Bringing Balance to Your Team;
3. Balancing Your Future.
Having completed the first module, you choose whether to continue and which modules you want to continue with. More details about each module – including costs – can be found below.
For example, you may at this stage simply want to rebalance your own working life and pause there. Once you’re comfortable managing your new arrangements you may want to come back and look at how you can enable better balance for your team. Or you may feel ready for the next promotion and want support navigating your job search.
If you’re currently on maternity leave and looking for better balance on return we may be able to persuade your employer to fund module 1 under their existing maternity coaching provisions. And if you’re a woman returner who’s been out of the workforce for a longer period please contact me for an initial conversation (without obligation) about how I can support you with a combination of modules 1 and 3.
