Do you want to get clear on your post-baby career goals, spend quality (guilt-free) time with your baby and feel confident about the important decisions you are making?

Individual life and career coaching to help calm your busy mind and get super clear on your plan of action (because we both know that you love to plan!)

Are you ready to feel less anxious, overwhelmed, tired and stressed?

You’ve always been able to plan ahead and been great at transitioning into new phases (new role, new firm, new city even) but this motherhood thing…..


This is new. It’s unknown (to you) and uncharted territory. You worry that you won’t be able to handle it or do it well – and the whole thing feels scarily out of your control.

I hear you.

There is no bigger change a woman can go through than becoming a mother – the good news is you don’t have to go in blind and you don’t have to do it alone.

I’ve been there – I am a lawyer and a mum to a busy body toddler.

I help women like you to transition to the scary, crazy, life-changing, amazing journey that is motherhood with confidence and optimism.

The transition coaching package is designed to help you: 

  • Map out your approach to motherhood, so you can feel in control and able to prioritise what truly matters to you (not what the baby books, or blogs tell you ‘should’ matter).

  • Make an empowered choice about how much time off is the right amount for you.  

  • Figure out what you want your career to look like after baby arrives

  • Prepare you for swapping days in the office dealing with complex legal tasks to days filled with dribble, bibs and poop (trust me you soon get used to talking about that last bit often!)

  • Adjust to your new version of your life – one filled with more joy, love and cuddles and less need for suits, fancy shoes and client meetings.

You’ll be Swapping your Longchamp bag for a Pacapod changing bag and shopping trips will be replaced with online shopping carts (thank goodness for Asos!).

You’ll need someone to talk to when you feel like you’re going crazy, someone who’s been there and done that and who doesn’t have an agenda other than to support you 100% of the way.

In your training as a lawyer you prepared before you were let loose on clients, so why wing it when you’re about to take on the best role of your life?

Becoming a mother is intense and wonderful and scary all at the same time.  We know its the biggest transition a woman can go through – so don’t leave it to chance or try and figure it out on your own.

The sessions with Janine have simply opened my eyes to a whole new way of looking into my professional life. I have recently changed jobs and had a session before the day I actually started. With Janine’s help, I was able to work out what I wanted from the job and what my goals were, as well as how committed I was to succeeding and sticking to those goals. The truth is, I could not have arrived to the conclusions I did without Janine’s expertise, because I did not know how important those changes were to me ! My mantra now is that “there is no such thing as work life balance, work needs to balance the life I want to live”. It is not easy but with Janine’s help I am sure I will succeed.
