Paternity Coaching

Helping you prepare your career for changes in your personal life.

Paternity Coaching

The Paternity Coaching Programme is dedicated to clients about to take or just returning from maternity/ paternity leave. You may be experiencing doubts or concerns about your career progression after having a baby, preparing a handover, having important conversations with your manager, preparing everything for your come-back, letting go of your responsibilities, and holding certain expectations towards yourself. Coaching can support you in managing your feelings, thoughts, and expectations, increasing your confidence, and planning important conversations and strategies to manage this transition in your life.

What is Paternity Coaching?

Paternity Coaching supports professionals during an exciting and significant period of their personal life as they leave work to have a baby. Upon returning to work, they face the demands of career management in their professional lives.

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as “Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.”


There are many benefits to taking some time at this key life stage to consider what you are looking for and what you want the future to look like. They may include helping you to:

The Art of Delegation

Being able to let go of tasks and responsibilities and delegate effectively.

Strategic Thinking

Being able to prioritise and think strategically.

Confidence in the Workplace

Show up confidently at work, especially during important conversations with managers, teams and senior leaders.

Managing your Well-Being

Having tools and your own solutions to manage your well-being.

Managing Overwhelm

Sharing tools to help you to manage overwhelm.

Self Awareness

Increased self-awareness of your strengths and values.

Our Process

Each coaching programme is tailored to the individual coachees needs and vision. The programme will typically include three one-hour coaching sessions, with time for reflection and planning exercises in between each session.

Throughout the process, I will provide the coachee with articles, tools, resources and exercises to help them achieve their defined goals. There is support via email or phone in between sessions to support the coachee’s learning and to support them on their journey.

Coach and Coachee Responsibilities



“Angelika is a fantastic coach. She is warm and very insightful with her methods, which helps me find my strengths and confidence. She listens carefully, challenges me to find the real problems, helps me to make plans, and pushes me to take action to achieve my goals. During our sessions, she has helped me with my career change successfully. My life and my confidence level have also improved massively. I can’t thank Angelika enough. Highly recommend Angelika to anyone who is considering coaching services. “

“Angelika is a compassionate, supportive and positive coach with a unique ability to spot the greatest paths of success for her clients. From coaching with Angelika, I feel I have grown from strength to strength and have been braver to take bigger and bolder career opportunities. I have gained invaluable skills; I understand myself better and my journey to become the best version of myself.”



“I can’t thank Angelika enough for our sessions. I started the journey confused and lacking in confidence and self-worth. Talking openly to Angelika felt like a relief. I feel like her approach led me to untangle my thoughts to give me a clear vision of what I wanted my professional and home life to look like. Her calm and warm demeanour put me completely at ease. I felt no judgement and supported, like I had someone else on my “team”. I finished our sessions with an increased sense of self-worth, a specific understanding of my goals and how to achieve them. I felt like a weight had been lifted. Thank you so much, Angelika! My life has completely changed for the better because of you.”

Facilities Manager


“Angelika was a massive support to me as I prepared for and embarked upon a promotion as a Head of Department in a Senior School. I was coming into the role with a sense of ‘imposter syndrome’, and I was seeking ways to build confidence in myself to develop trust and confidence in myself as a leader from my team. She is an extremely intuitive and perceptive listener and asks astute questions, leading me to devise strategies to practise. It was amazing when we came to the end of our sessions to look back and see the progress I had made, and I could not have taken those steps forward had it not been for the coaching I received from Angelika. She would be an asset to any team, employer or employee as a coach or mentor, and she has a genuine desire/vocation to see her clients grow. I would wholeheartedly recommend her services.”

School Department Head


“The personal (and professional) benefits gained from coaching with Angelika were invaluable; almost immediately, I felt relaxed with her style. The techniques she introduced me to helped me reach sound conclusions on issues I was dealing with, and I got real outcomes I could implement in my daily life. She provided a voice of reason and helped me take ownership and action for things I probably knew deep down but had buried and ignored for far too long! Thank you, Angelika, for all your support and guidance.”
