"Coaching with Megan has really helped me to make more time for myself. With her coaching, I have learned to prioritise myself and my needs."
"I feel supported and so much more CONFIDENT and only have Megan to thank for that!"
"The sessions have been so helpful, and not overwhelming. I have finally had time to think about what I really want and act on it."
My career started out in media and PR in Los Angeles, USA. In 2007, I moved to London, for what I thought would be a year, to work for a law firm in their People Development team. This move brought about a complete life and career change for myself, and nearly 16 years later, I still live in London, now married to a Brit and raising a family.
Throughout the years, I have worked in recruitment and learning and development for a variety of companies, including Goldman Sachs, Lloyd's of London, Barclays and KPMG.
After having my son in 2016, I took an 18-month career break which resulted in another major life and career transition. Since 2018, I have worked part-time for London's #1 university as a career coach supporting MSc and MBA students in career transitions, job search strategy, personal branding and interview prep.
In addition to my part-time role, I started Balanced Mother Coaching in 2020 to support working mothers in corporate to love their career and motherhood too. As a new mother, I really struggled with the guilt and overwhelm that comes with being a working mother, but by getting clear on my desires and confident in setting boundaries, I have created a life I love with time for my career and my family.
I love helping working mothers to identify their passions and create the best balance for themselves.
What Drew You To Coaching?
I first experienced coaching for myself in 2010 when I was able to participate in group coaching. I loved the way our coach asked questions to encourage deeper thinking and people were able to identify the best choices for themselves by finding the answers within.
It was later the next year when I decided to qualify as a coach myself to provide better support to the employees I was supporting and empower them to make the best career decisions for themselves as they progressed in their careers.
I am particularly passionate about supporting working mothers due to my experience of returning to work after maternity leave and having a coach of my own.
During this time, I was completely overwhelmed, feeling torn in multiple directions and dealing with guilt of not feeling able to give myself fully to my career or my journey in motherhood. It was with this coach that I was able to identify what I really wanted for my own life and put healthy boundaries in place.
My coaching can best be described as a safe space, a sounding board, and motivation to identify and go after your dreams. I challenge my clients in a caring, but constructive way, to encourage them to think deeply about what they really want for their life.
