You don't have to do this all on your own.

Going back to work after becoming a mum isn't easy.  

You're desperate to do your best for your kids but also don't want to feel like you're wasting your potential.  

But in trying to juggle the demands of family and work, you're putting in two demanding shifts a day, your to-do list never seems to end, and you're feeling stretched.  

Very stretched.

We live in a world where mums often:

  • feel judged for their choices, which leaves them feeling guilty, no matter whether they choose to be a stay-at-home parent, to work part-time or to return to work full-time
     

  • become so accustomed to addressing the needs of their kids that they lose sight of and no longer prioritise their own
     

  • feel torn between work and family and like they’re not succeeding at either
     
  • feel exhausted from pulling two shifts every day
     
  • doubt themselves and the relevance of their skills after spending time away from work
     
  • worry about how their colleagues and boss will treat them when they return to work.

But wait a minute.  

Who says that being a working mum means that you need to juggle two full-time jobs all on your own?

There’s a better way.

Tried and tested steps that other mums have successfully taken, that will enable you to be there for your kid’s important milestones, confidently negotiate and navigate your transition back to work, all while feeling more calm, more resilient, and more energised along the way.

Imagine:

  • having more time for yourself while still giving generously to the important people around you
     
  • confidently delegating and asking for what you want at home and at work
     
  • feeling internally at peace with your decisions and desires
     
  • being productive and engaged at work AND able to be there for your kids
     
  • feeling more resilient, calm and energised
     
  • showing up as your best self at work and home.

I’m Rebekah Fraser, the founder of The Back to Work Coach.  

I’m an ICF-certified coach and very pleased to tell you that I’m a happy, working mum!

ICF ACC
Rebekah Fraser
 
 

Yes, I'm a mum like you.

I have a bright, sassy, loving 6-year old daughter named Libby. She challenges me. She teaches me.  She grounds me.  She provides life’s happiest and most rewarding moments but the toughest and most heartbreaking as well.  But you know all this already because you’re a mum, too.

And while I love my daughter deeply, I also felt a desire to return to some kind of professional work after my parental leave - for me, for my sanity, and to make me a better mum in the long-term.

But whoa - getting back into work was hard!

I never expected the loss of confidence.  I never expected the tiredness.  I never expected that searching for the right childcare solution would make me feel so anxious. I never expected to feel so conflicted about my choices or care what others thought about them.  I never expected to have to deal with mother’s guilt or for the need to learn to negotiate and delegate like I did.  I never expected to feel so overwhelmed about trying to do something that I’d done so easily before!

Thankfully, over time, I found my way.

I grew my self-awareness so that I made my decisions in line with my values and felt at peace with them as a consequence.  I learned how to ask for help and negotiate to get people onside.  I discovered how to talk to myself so that I could take the necessary steps with confidence.  I identified my priorities so that I focused my time in the right places. I made decisions that supported my long-terms goal of how I wanted to experience my life.

I found answers…and I want to share them with you.

SERVICES FOR MUMS

At The Back to Work Coach we offer one-to-one and group coaching programs specifically tailored to support women like you with the unique challenges you face as you transition into maternity leave and then back to work after becoming a mum.

Virtual Coaching with Rebekah Fraser

Private coaching programs offer you the chance to work one-to-one (in person or virtually) with Rebekah Fraser, a certified professional coach who understands the unique challenges you face as a mum that is looking to return back to work.

Through a series of coaching sessions, women typically:

  • learn how to establish boundaries

  • unlock more confidence in themselves

  • develop a plan for getting others onboard with providing the necessary flexibility and support

  • gain a better understanding of how being a mum has enriched the value they have to offer their employers

  • become clearer on what they want their life as a parent to look like and take steps aligned with that.

The reality is that I would not have felt as confident or assured without Rebekah’s input and coaching. Prior to working with Rebekah, I am confident the business needs would have been met, while I (on the other hand) would most likely be feeling stretched and compromised.

The great news is that there is a lot of good will and intentions on both sides and I am significantly more positive about what returning to work will mean for me and my family.
— Jacqui, HR Manager

The focus of each session will be completely customised to your unique needs and challenges.  Common topics include:

  • Clarifying your ideal work scenario

  • Defining your ideal home scenario

  • Asking for what you need at work and at home

  • Solving practical challenges

  • Getting a grip on guilt and building confidence.

Group Coaching

Group Coaching

Group coaching provides an opportunity to not only receive the expert support of a certified professional coach but also the support of a small group of 4 to 8 like-minded women.

We offer this service because too often, women feel judged and alone during their transition to parenthood and back to work.

This isolation often drives women to adopt unhelpful behaviours such as putting everyone else before themselves, not asking for help and staying silent about their needs and desires.

Group coaching provides a non-judgemental platform of support plus the opportunity to learn from others who are experiencing similar challenges.

From the moment you embark on your group coaching program, you join a sisterhood of women who 'get it', who understand the pressures you face, who have your back and will be encouraging and supporting you on your journey to balance work and life as a mum.

The Back to Work Coach 8-week Group Coaching Program is perfect for mums who are ready to start preparing to return to work.

I thought coaching was about someone suggesting ideas for what I could do to improve, telling me what I should do to solve my problems ... I soon came to realise that I needed first to figure out what I wanted to change and then come up with my own solutions.

Throughout I had Rebekah’s support - she asked the right questions to help me reach into myself and find my answers. I discovered how to make small changes, and change my perspective to make a positive influence both emotionally and in what I do.

Coaching has helped to transform my life. I highly recommend Rebekah who is easy to work with. She makes you comfortable and at ease. And most of all she will help you find the answers you had inside all the time.
