The world of work now offers unlimited opportunities for women.
We have never had more freedom to succeed and make money.
There is nothing to stop us reaching the top of our profession and fulfilling our greatest potential.
There has also never been greater stress in the workplace. Sickness and stress related illness has increased dramatically and people struggle to switch off as we’re expected to be on 24/7.
Burnout is now recognised as an occupational phenomenon and women are more prone to burnout than men.
I had a successful corporate career for 16 years. My last role was Head of Global Account Management at Yahoo and my career was cut short by burnout.
After I recovered, I was keen to find out how I could have handled the pressure and the workload better and not had to give up my career. I studied Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and trained in Performance Coaching.
During my corporate career I saw that women faced different challenges at work than men, and women responded differently to pressure and deadlines.
I now offer resilience training and coaching tailored to women, in my private practice and in organisations.
