What does the programme deliver?

For Women in Business (owners or their teams) who want to reach their potential and enjoy higher levels of confidence and resilience.

  • Do you ever feel as if you can’t be you? That you have to put on an act?
  • Perhaps you think you’re not good enough or that you don’t fit in?
  • Perhaps you are comparing yourself to others or worry what others think?

But that’s not who you want to be! You know you have the ability to succeed, but right now, it feels out of reach.

This can often leads to a spiral of  feeling low in confidence, overloaded with self-doubt, living life out of balance, feeling stretched beyond capacity, and having a head so full of thoughts that you simply can’t switch off.

Not to mention, how all of this can affect your self-worth, making it far less likely that you will take opportunities that you know you could take to grow your business, more likely to have a lower turnover as you’re not charging your worth, not pursuing funding opportunities or progress up the career ladder as quickly as you are able.

But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Perhaps you know that life can be lived on different terms, that you could reach your potential and not get in your own way but are not sure how? 

If you’re thinking ‘this is me’, this is the programme for you.

The Courageous Females Programme is underpinned by ‘State of Mind’ Coaching, a cutting-edge psychological understanding, there are no tools or techniques, you will explore a deeper understanding of your own psychology facilitating real, sustainable change. This will leave you feeling far more naturally empowered enabling you to move beyond stress, low self-esteem and burnout to one of confidence, resilience and balance so that you can take opportunities that are right for you, grow your businesses or progress your career, and ultimately fulfil your potential. The programme is in person, held at Westminster Business Park, and will be a small group of no more than 15 creating a safe, supportive environment, enabling honest and real conversations with like-minded women

The Programme will cover:

Constant Confidence

Rediscover your confidence – how to feel confident in yourself, trust yourself and your decisions.

Robust Resilience

How to bounce back stronger than ever, no matter what work (or life) throws at you.

Emotional Wellness

The secret to letting go of stress, overthinking, fear, doubt and worry.

Stepping out and feeling free

How to follow what you know is right, stepping out of your comfort zone and stepping up to the challenge, feeling free of whatever it is that is holding you back.

Creating Flourishing Working Relationships

How to take out the stress of work relationships, how to find understanding & compassion in the most challenging of relationships. How to support colleagues and team members to reduce stress and tension and to bring out the best in each other.

Inspired Living

How to tap into your innate capacity for creativity, fresh ideas and even a little ingenuity

True Balance & How to Flourish at Life

Learn the secret behind creating a work/life balance with ease. How to thrive in your work, irrespective of your current circumstances. How to feel joyful, hopeful and excited for your future – no matter what it may hold!

These areas are not exhaustive and the programme will accommodate the needs of those on the programme.

Feedback from previous participants:

‘Working with Andrea is great. She doesn’t tell you the answers, she gently and surely guides you to self realisation. Building session by session, the programme opens doors that we didn’t realise we had closed on ourselves. The result is liberation, from stuck thinking, guilt, fear and self sabotage. Whether you’re thinking about your business, or workplace or specific area of your life, the principles that Andrea works with will impact all areas of your life as she invites you to take a fresh look and embrace a calmer, more grounded and resilient version of yourself.’ Dr Kerrie Farrar

‘The Courageous Females Programme is a gentle but deep exploration of the way human beings work and the nature of thought. Andrea is a wonderful facilitator and made sure that everybody had the opportunity to contribute, so even a diehard introvert like me was able to be heard.

This is a truly magical course, which led me to a number of insights about human nature that have helped me put an end to the stress of striving to be perfect and the exhaustion of trying to manage other people’s perception of me. I’m free to be me without having to fix anything.  I would recommend this course to anyone’. LL Business Coach
