About 1:1 coaching

I create a safe and non-judgmental space to explore new ways of thinking, to discuss shifting work and parental values, to assess the support network available and help in energy and time management.

My clients’ feedback proves that Maternity Returners Coaching helps coachee improve their overall life and happiness by providing regular timeslot and space to explore changing beliefs and needs. The clients learn to use and apply coaching tools to deal with new challenges and future changes to create the balance they need to be at their best.

How it works?

Before Maternity Leave:

Ideally, I would start working with an expecting mum to help her prepare her handover at work and to leave “work” at work. we would also discuss this life changing event in terms of identity, organization and beliefs.

During Maternity Leave:

It’s an optional session in which clients tend to reflect on a new role and identity. We would look at resources available, support required and boundaries to maximize return on time and energy investment. We would also prepare for returning to work or not returning to work.

After returning to work:

After returning to work my clients would assess their reality to plan the most optimal outcomes in immediate and near future. We would also look at the client’s strengths, values and ambitions and develop an action plan to create a unique work-life-family blend followed by career plan

What do my clients say?

I worked with Ewa after returning from maternity leave, and I can only be grateful for what she helped me to realize. Ewa was able to build a real relationship of trust from the very first sessions. Ewa knew how to hear and listen to the ” not said ” and helped me to become aware of what would be the most beneficial and best for me for my future. Her listening skills and empathy make Ewa an excellent coach, whom I can only highly recommend to anyone who wishes to move forward and become aware of who they really are.

From our very first session, Ewa was warm and welcoming, creating a safe space for me to share my concerns and fears. She listened attentively and asked insightful questions that helped me identify my strengths and skills. Ewa helped me to see that being a mother and a professional were not mutually exclusive, and that I had valuable skills and experiences to bring to the table.
Ewa provided me with practical tools and strategies to help me manage my time more effectively and prioritize my tasks. She also helped me to develop a self-care routine that allowed me to take care of myself as well as my family and work commitments.
Ewa’s guidance and support were instrumental in empowering me to return to my professional life with renewed confidence and self-assurance. I felt empowered not only as a mother and a professional but most importantly as a woman. Ewa helped me to see that my experiences as a mother had given me a unique perspective and set of skills that I could use to my advantage in my professional life.
Overall, my experience with Ewa as a maternity coach was incredibly positive, and I would highly recommend her to any new mother looking to navigate the transition back to their professional life. Ewa is a kind, empathetic, and knowledgeable coach who truly cares about helping her clients reach their full potential.

Motherhood undoubtedly changes you completely, having received coaching sessions from Ewa has helped me discover the person that I have become since then, with more defined values ​​and priorities. The tools used in our meetings have allowed me to regain confidence in myself and in my professional skills to be able to exploit them after becoming a mother. Ewa is a great person, passionate about her profession and gives her best for her clients.
