“The prospect of returning to work after 9 months of nappies, tears, tantrums, smiles and giggles, filled me with both excitement and self doubt. I wasn’t entirely sure whether I could still do my job, or meet the expectations of my colleagues, and didn’t really feel I had anyone to share these fears with or talk them through. My sessions with Hilary not only helped reassure me, but also helped me think about what boundaries I wanted to put in place to safeguard my new role as mom, and my own wellbeing. The sessions were structured to what I needed from them – some more formal than others – but all allowing me to reflect on my progress transitioning from full time mom, to full time mom + career woman. I would highly recommend Hilary to anyone looking to make that step back into the workplace”

“Working with Hilary for the past 3 months has been an absolute pleasure.  I approached Hilary to help orientate my thinking as I embarked on a change in career and lifestyle, moving out of mainstream sales and marketing into part-time working and consultancy. Hilary is a great listener and has an ability to ask the right probing questions at the appropriate moments, which forced me to dig deep when considering my motivations for a career change and assessing my priorities for the future. What impressed me the most was Hilary’s ability to bring all the different strands of our various sessions together into a clear plan of action to take away and implement. This has certainly strengthened my focus and clarified what I want from the next stage of my career. I have no hesitation in recommending Hilary’s services as an executive coach”

“Hilary has a very warm and open style which makes building a rapport easy and therefore trust in her and the process comes naturally.  She really “gets” working mums being one herself and the empathy she had made it easy to be open with her and feel understood.  She has a professional approach and no personal bias or opinion came into our coaching conversations.  She constructively called out and challenged me to explain/dig deeper – I have never said “I feel lucky to be able to work 3 days” since our first session and have spoken to other colleagues about this too! Hilary held me to account really well in a way in which I would say no-one does here at work or at home”

Veronica Watson, Senior Portfolio Manager, Walgreens Boots Alliance

“The coaching support Hilary gave me has really renewed my energy and enthusiasm for the next stage in my career. It was particularly helpful to have someone impartial to talk to. I would highly recommend this programme to others – in fact regardless of whether they have been on maternity leave or not!”

Emily Hughes, Senior Global Market Strategy and Planning Manager, Walgreens Boots Alliance

“I was lucky enough to have 3 coaching sessions with Hilary through my employers, and found them a really valuable and worthwhile experience. Hilary got me to look at myself objectively and think about challenges I face in my role and approaches and techniques that I could use to help me work through them. She was very open, approachable and shared a range of really great tools that I have been using in my practice over recent weeks. My confidence, approach to difficult conversations and techniques I can use have all been improved as a result of working with Hilary, and I’d really recommend her coaching services to colleagues and others in the industry”

Kate Wright, Divisional Lead, Caudex
