1-1 coaching for an empowered return to your job after parental leave


50% of women have cited their return to work as a pinch point in their careers.

Are you a professional preparing to go back to your job after parental leave? Do you wish you had a roadmap for making a smooth and successful return to your workplace? Do you want to ensure that you can return with professional gravitas? That your career ambition doesn't stall?


What if you knew you could:

RETURN is for you if you want to:

  • Re-connect with your professional identity. 

  • Take the time you need to evaluate your priorities as a working parent. 

  • Navigate a smooth return that works well both for you and for your employer.

  • Negotiating a work life integration that works for you


''Lizzie creates a warm and judgement free space where you feel comfortable to open up fully. I was having a challenging time setting guilt free boundaries and Lizzie helped me become more assertive – working with her has been a game changer.''

I don't have any time for myself (and can only meet in the evening or at weekends when I have childcare support or my baby is sleeping)

Finding time when you have a small dependent child can be hard which is why I have evening and weekend appointments available so that you can focus on yourself without any distractions. 

I can't afford to invest in coaching

I understand that price is an important consideration and coaching can appear expensive. ​What most of my clients find is that the benefits of improving inner confidence and career happiness far outweigh the cost of a new suit or fancy meal.

Do I really need a coach or could I be ok on my own?

One of the greatest benefits of coaching is that you are able to achieve your goals faster and more confidently than going it alone. Most of my clients talk about how important accountability is when navigating change. I also offer a safe space for you to fully explore what is the most important for you without any judgement.
