Return to Work Coaching: How you can fight the fear

'A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step' says the Chinese proverb ... and one million positive blogs and Facebook posts.

Good point, but are you stuck wobbling on one leg and frightened of taking your first step?

Confidence to Return coaching can help women out of this paralysis. We can help you find the direction that is best for you, whether you have children, are trans, middle-aged or older. All women have a different personal story, and you all deserve to thrive.

Life's challenges

Maybe in a 'previous life', you had drive and ambition. Your career gave you confidence, a place in society and financial rewards. Then motherhood, illness or other caring duties led you into an unexpected career break. Life throws lots of challenges at us.

You want to go back to your job, or do something new and fulfilling. But you fear that you are out of date, in what you know and how you appear.

Deep-seated fears

Our Return to Work coaching can help you examine the deep-seated fears and beliefs that hold you back. It will help you think what you want to do, and build your self-confidence.

Thoughtful quotes can be helpful in reinforcing new, positive self-belief. Read three from modern authors, which are fresher than the thousand steps.

Confidence to Return

Recognise your courage and be kinder to yourself as you Return to Work.

"Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it" C. JoyBell C.

Don't deny your fear, or let it embarrass you. Take action and seek help to release its hold on you.

"Scars are your greatest medals in life." Matshona Dhliwayo

Perversely, coping with tough experiences can make us feel diminished. Who wants to hear tales of suffering, or coping, or caring? It seems too negative. Be proud of your grit and your hard-won perspective. These life skills will make you a valuable employee, with great resilience.

'Scared is what you're feeling. Brave is what you're doing.'
Emma Donoghue

Remember, the definition of courage is 'the ability to do something that frightens you'. Being brave means you make the decision to expose yourself to danger – be it emotional or physical. Confidence to Return can help you realise that you've got the strength to do that.
