MY STORY

 

Before coaching, I had practised for 13 years as a solicitor with a top-10 law firm. After my first son was born, I negotiated part-time working while maintaining career ambitions and was promoted within 12 months.

 

I have first-hand experience of the challenges professional women face when returning to work after mat leave. Top three are (1) pressures on balancing work and family - self-inflicted, or coming from family, friends, colleagues, society; (2) career growth - time pressures and bias; (3) health & wellbeing - you, your new identity, exercise, social life, things that bring you joy.

 

​After my first son was born, I went to do coaching training as a self-help strategy to process what had happened in my life and hired one of the tutors as my coach. It was powerful beyond expectations. I started to coach in parallel to law.

 

A second turning point was after my second birth in France. I was fortunate to encounter doctors and experts (both in the UK and in France) who opened my eyes on the gap between 'natural recovery' and actively helping your body and mind to recover after childbirth. [FUN FACT: While in France (Reunion Island to be precise), and heavily pregnant I wrote the Russian version of the audio guide for the museum of the island's rum production factory, Saga du Rhum (it involved no degustation).]

 

​I was then thrilled to discover training on Executive Coaching & Health, which by that time had become my niche expertise.

 

​Still in love with law, I became passionate about supporting other women thrive not just survive after birth. I devoted myself to Life, Health & Career Coaching after childbirth, focusing on women in law.

 

​In addition to my private practice, I am extensively involved in improving postnatal care in the UK. In May 2018, I was one of 12 speakers at the Governmental round-table discussions in Westminster on the benefits of providing pelvic floor physiotherapy to all women after childbirth as standard; this recommendation was included in the NHS Long-Term Plan (January 2019). I am working on a pilot project for the NHS England, support the MASIC Foundation and PelvicRoar campaign, and am an ambassador for a perinatal mental health initiative Make Birth Better CIC.
