I support ambitious mothers to unleash their full potential
whilst successfully managing the challenges of parenting.

I do this through coaching mamas one-to-one: to feel confident and in control of their lives once more whilst parenting in a calm and positive way, as well as through supporting organisations with workshops, coaching and onboarding programmes to retain, engage and motivate their returners (professional parents who have taken extended leave to fulfil caring responsibilities).

In both contexts, I support each mama to be the best she can be and to share confidently her unique gifts as a multi-talented woman. I help her to find happiness, fulfilIment and productivity, both at home and in the workplace.

Would you like to reprioritise your needs and to work through whichever fears and blocks are in the way? So that you:

  • find the perfect career for you
  • create work/life/parenting harmony
  • find the courage and confidence to pursue your passion
  • release the need to be perfect
  • get rid of mama guilt
  • love yourself and your post-kids body exactly as it is?

Now is the time to feel motivated and in control once again,
to create the lifestyle you want to lead
and be the person you really want to be.



  • Maybe you feel you’ve been crushed by motherhood – you’re too exhausted to even consider what your needs might be?

  • Maybe you think you don’t deserve any more – after all, you should just be grateful for what you have, no?

  • Maybe it feels selfish to spend time on yourself – work and the kids come first?

i hear you

I know how hard you are on yourself. I get the shame that creeps up on you - for not being more patient, more tolerant, more nurturing, more understanding. I know how badly you would like not to morph into shouty mama. I understand how much you sacrifice for your kids, every day, even though it feels like it’s never quite enough.

I know that you secretly think everyone else is coping better than you and that you feel guilty for not being happier. I understand that you desire to be as wild and free as you were before kids, but that when it comes down to it, you’re just too tired.

I get that life as a mama is one big contradiction: that kids bring out both the best and worst in you and that parenting is both exhilarating and exasperating.  

I also know how much you NEEd something which is yours,
something that makes you feel happy and fulfilled beyond motherhood:  

  • a meaningful career or cause that gives you back your sense of worth

  • your own business or hobby that fits round your mama duties

  • the financial freedom to spend on what is important to you

You want the best of BOTH worlds…


And as your coach, I’m here to show you how to get it.

Read about talented, ambitious mamas whose lives have already changed through working with me here.

Lavinia is such an inspiring and talented life-coach. She helped me to rebuild the confidence and self-esteem that I was gradually losing and to pluck up the courage to set myself free…

I came across Lavinia at just the right time and despite not really believing a coach could make any difference, by the end of the first session, I felt relaxed, like I could trust her and that I could discuss my feelings and thoughts freely.  

I now feel so much more confident and in control – that I can do whatever I want without being held back by my old fears of being too old or not good enough. Lavinia supported me in considering options that I had thought were impossible and I finally found the strength to resign from my current job in order to pursue my passion!
