Maternity Leave Coaching - JS, Associate
I used the Maternity Coaching service on my return to work. I found the service really helpful, it provided me with support in navigating returning to work after maternity leave and the new challenges that presented. It enabled me to reflect on my maternity leave, which had its unique challenges - taking place during a global pandemic and the additional strains that created. It provided me with an opportunity to reflect on how I was coping with my return to work and discuss strategies in relation to any areas of concern I had.
I felt supported and genuinely listened to. My Coach provided some helpful suggestions on how I may change my approach to certain elements of my work to ensure I get the optimal work / life balance which in turn means I am a happy and productive employee. Overall i think this was a great service and would certainly recommend to others.
Burnout Preventative Coaching Support - DO, Director
An accumulation of events had led me to a very low point. 6 weeks later I am back to feeling like myself, if not even better than I had done for many years. The most important take aways for me were the impact diet has on the mind and body, as well as ensuring there are clear self care boundaries. Beyond EAP's support has been invaluable, and has has connected the dots on several issues that have come and gone over the last 2 decades. Now I feel well armed with the knowledge to prevent any recurrences.
Maternity Leave Coaching - NB
On my first appointment I was extremely stressed, anxious and struggling mentally. The coach instantly recognised these traits and straight away put in a plan of action to help.
All my meetings have addressed the various emotions and feelings I had at that time, when she left I always felt so positive and helped how to address my feelings and concerns. No issue was too small and she was so welcoming and warm, I always looked forward to our meetings and even phoning her in between.
The advice has been invaluable during and post pregnancy and I know in the future I will refer back to it when these feelings arise. I honestly don't know how I would have coped without her the last 15 months and would always recommend Beyond EAP services.
