Build your Bridge Back to Work
Time & Location
About the Event
Build your Bridge Back to Work is a 4-week programme for women looking to return to work after a career break.
So you’ve made the decision to go back to work? It is daunting to think about what options there are for you, and figuring out where to start can feel confusing and impossible.
You may have signed up for job updates and dusted off your old CV, only to feel deflated and discouraged when your skills don’t seem to match or you are a completely different person to the one described on the page.
What you need is to spend some time understanding who you are now, in the context of your needs, wants, desires and dreams, and what really fires you up. Once you have a clear sense of yourself, the future becomes much less cloudy and overwhelming, and you can start to take charge.
I am a professional, accredited coach, and a local mum of 2 teenage boys. I spent 20 years working in Consulting and Financial Services, and I know the juggle of stretching your time, energy and headspace between your career and the time you want to give to your family. I love getting to know women who are looking to make this kind of change, and standing shoulder to shoulder with them to rediscover old superpowers, find new ones and put them all to work to create a life that is rich and fulfilled.
Build Your Bridge Back to Work is a four-week series of 2-hour group coaching workshops which will take place in a beautifully calm venue in Southfields, SW18. Each session builds on the previous week, helping you identify what matters to you, your skills and how those might fit into today’s working world, however much it has changed. We’ll work together to help build your confidence and tap into your inner resources to overcome any obstacles you feel are lying in your path, so that you can start to build a plan and take charge of what’s next for you. You will also connect with a small network of like minded women in the local area, to progress through the material together and never feel alone.
The total cost is £397, which also includes a 1:1 coaching session for each person during the course, arranged at a time to suit you.
Q: Do I have to attend all sessions?
Each session builds on the previous session, so it would be best to try to attend all sessions if possible, although it may be possible to use the 1:1 coaching session to catch up on what was missed. There are no refunds for missed sessions.
Q: How big are the groups?
The maximum number of attendees will be 8, which means that the content can be personalised, specific and not generic.
Q: I can’t afford this right now, are there any payment options?
Please get in touch to discuss. It may be possible to arrange a split payment, as long as the course is paid in full before the first session.
Q: Can I attend these online?
These coaching workshops are run in person, and much of the work we do involves moving around the room, so unfortunately it is not possible to attend online. The workshops are run at a regular time, in the middle of the day, to accommodate school and nursery timings. The 1:1 coaching session can be held online.
“The physical exercises were very helpful as they enabled me to see and feel where I was and where I wanted to get to rather than just think about it.”
“..things became a lot clearer - what motivates me, decisions I have made. This led to lots of lightbulb moments - ‘oh yeah, that’s why’ “
“what I really loved was that it didn’t stick with theory - by the end of the course it was incredibly practical and I came away with a list of actions I could make to get from where I was, heading in the right direction towards my goals.”
I believe so much in the work that I do and the impact that it has on people’s lives that I offer a 100% refund if you are unhappy at the end of the course.
Life is short and precious. You deserve to experience it in all its glory, and on your own terms. Having the clarity and self awareness of who you are and what really matters to you will ensure that you make the most of every opportunity.
