WORKING PARENTS

ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO JUGGLE FAMILY AND WORK RESPONSIBILITIES? FED UP OF JUST ABOUT MANAGING TO GET THROUGH EACH DAY AND NEVER HAVING TIME FOR YOU?

Would you like personal support from an experienced coach who can help you find a way out of being in survival mode, helping you and your family to thrive?

Being a working parent can be challenging especially when unplanned events happen such as illness, divorce, increased workload, loss or taking on additional responsibilities. 

We know that overall mums take on more of the domestic and emotional workload at home as well as childcare and care for other members of the family.  It’s physical and emotional hard work!

Whether you’re co-parenting 50:50 or doing it all alone, whether you’re in a high-flying career or working a few hours each week to get by, being a working mum can bring a lot of joy but can also be exhausting.

If you’re struggling at the moment, you need our Working Parents Coaching programme.

Whilst we haven’t got a magic wand to make it all better, you will get personal coaching sessions (usually via Zoom – so your location is no problem) tailored to your specific unique situation to help you successfully work out a plan to make effective changes, give you the resources and motivation to put it into action and discover ways to take control of your life, feel better and start to thrive. We’re here to help you lighten the load.

If your employer is interested in supporting parents and carers in the workplace ask them to get in touch with our sister business, CM Talent.

£195

  • By the end of the Programme you should expect to have made significant progress towards achieving your plan and be clear about your next steps to take.

 

“The coaching enabled me to truly think about what’s really important to me – my values and needs. Tough questions to consider but all the better for thinking about! I’ve now transitioned to a much healthier working life, creating space to do additional studies.  I couldn’t have done without the Career-Mums support.”
