As a mother of three young kids, I had spent five years working part-time with long periods of maternity leave, and had found myself lost without any strong career direction. I sort Janet’s help because I felt lethargic about what I was doing, and I was struggling to feel that I could make any progress in my research/academic career while juggling with my ‘work/life’ balance.
My sessions with Janet were just like catching up with an old friend who was happy to talk through me and my concerns. The sessions were focused upon what was important to me at that time. We had discussions on things from my long-term career planning and project management, to strategies to get through a crazy day when home and work commitments were overwhelming.
I’d recommend Janet to anyone who is struggling with a lack of direction and confidence in their career, or their work/life balance.
