I am a mum of two and while training to be a coach I received some coaching myself which helped me with issues I was having in finding the work/time with children balance. Coaching is essentially a chance to talk about any issues you are having, be listened to, and then through a questioning process you are helped to consider your options and best course of action.
In thinking that the same process may help others, I am considering setting up a short course for mums who are either going back to work or back at work and juggling work and childcare. It would probably involve a set of 4 sessions involving group coaching and brushing up on useful skills for the workplace. The same group would attend all 4 and would benefit from supporting each other (under my supervision), hearing about how others are resolving their issues, and potentially making contacts that last beyond the sessions.
I would appreciate your comments below (6 short questions) to help me decide whether this is something useful for people! Many thanks.
