BE MORE YOU
With Michelle Minnikin
DO YOU WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE YOUR SHIT TOGETHER?
So many working mums are struggling to keep all the plates spinning without losing themselves, their identity and balancing their own wishes and desires with all their responsibilities.
They’re drowning with a smile on their faces doing everything for other people and nothing for themselves.
I know that it’s difficult to ask for help and feels almost impossible to take the time to prioritise your own needs in your busy, stressful life.
Our coaching programmes give a safe space and practical support to busy working mums from across the globe to take some time to focus on their self-care, tap into their own inner wisdom and work on fulfilling their desires.
We work at your pace to help you understand yourself and get clarity on your needs and help you gain the confidence in asking for what you want whilst championing you all the way!
PS - I'll share a very important secret here... nobody actually has their shit together, we're all winging it (hopefully with style)!
FOCUS ON YOUR NEEDS
FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU WANT
GO AND GET IT
COACHING FOR BUSY WORKING MUMS
I understand how it feels frustrating to have a massive to do list and spend your time helping other people but never do anything for yourself. You probably spend time wishing that you had more control over your life and more time and energy to spend some time getting the things that you want.
I get it, as a busy working mum, balancing the needs of a child, partner, job, household chores, food shopping, bill-paying, activity planning etc it can be overwhelming sometimes.
Then when you factor in all the guilt! Am I doing enough as a mum? In my work? In the house? No wonder we're flipping exhausted, distracted and feel a bit alone!!
I believe that you can get what you want without sacrificing your sanity.
The ability to be more you and ask for what you need can mean the difference between being feeling like you're overwhelmed and lost and feeling like you're on track with your life goals.

HEAR FROM AWESOME MUMS I'VE WORKED WITH
I didn't really know what to expect from being 'coached'. I had no idea that within 45 minutes, Michelle would show me that I already knew the answers to questions I'd been afraid to ask regarding what I needed from my career. Two weeks on I have applied for a new role and have the potential of working to my own core values - every day!
I truly couldn't recommend Michelle enough...
Of all the people I have ever met, Michelle has helped me the most with my career. She is very knowledgeable and has loads of contacts (she will definitely know who you need to talk to), but what I like the most is the fact that Michelle is very approachable and easy to talk to, my sessions with her were genuinely fun and I always looked forward to them. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who wants to grow as a person or in their career.
I can’t recommend Michelle enough.
My head was exploding with a decision I had to make regarding the direction of my career. I couldn’t work out if a new job offer was the right choice for me, my family life, or my career.
She helped me realise exactly what my concerns were and what it was I was still searching for.
I loved learning more about myself and what parts of my life I valued the most or where I felt I was lacking.
She directed me to sources of further learning in negotiation skills and boundaries.
This coaching has led on to realising that I need to focus on self care....the first session was the the first time I’ve felt calm and peaceful in a long time!
Michelle is the easiest person to talk to, full of knowledge, suggestions, and understanding - and all delivered with the most calm voice you will hear!
OUR COACHING JOURNEY
This is the process we go on to start your coaching journey:
Quick 15-min introductory chat to check there's initial rapport.
45 min 'Chemistry Meeting' to co-create the scope and nature of our coaching relationship, when and how we're going to meet. AKA "the rules and boundaries" for coaching.
Then we get going.
Typically I work with clients for an initial 3 months, meeting once per fortnight, we then have a review to see if further support is needed.
I love helping people work towards their dreams, realise their potential, and achieve happiness! We are all a work in progress. Every day is a learning day.
I'm a Chartered Organisational Psychologist and Coach and have completed the Playing Big Facilitators Training with Tara Mohr.
I'm at my happiest when I'm coaching wonderful humans, creating courses, programmes, webinars and facilitating positive change in my clients.
