The MaPa Approach

You Achieve what You Believe.

Turn your Dreams into Actions Plans.

Do you feel like somewhere between the transition from parent to working parent, you lost your way? Between the demands of parenting and career pressure, you began to question if you are on the right path?

Having a coach to champion you, a community of parents to support you and a holistic bespoke strategy

will help you create the harmony you have been craving.

I will assess your professional situation through collaboration, compassion & innovation to create a life altering action plan to take you to the next level.

 Parene offers a variety of life & career coaching services that will nurture your spirit, help you overcome personal challenges, and allow you to achieve your career and life goals. 

I can help you find the clarity and self-awareness you need to lead a life with greater certainty.

Parent Transition Coaching for Groups

Group Coaching offers help across all aspect of life.  I meet each parent individually to collect their problem statements and tailor each group with an appropriate solution in mind.

The programme is set on the outcomes each parent wants to achieve in the six sessions.

Childcare, Time Management, Work/Life Balance as well as confidence are all factors we will consider together with peer support.  

As you transition, we will walk with you while you navigate the new change with confidence.​

Group Sessions occur in blocks of six sessions. The focus may not be the same for every parent but we can all learn from others experience.


Areas we will broadly cover:

  • Managing pressure, deadlines, difficult people and overwhelm

  • Tools to help you separate yourself from your thoughts

  • Creating boundaries and speaking up 

  • Understanding what triggers you and creates stress

  • Avoiding thinking traps and catastrophizing

  • Creating routines to reduce stress and increase sleep

  • Building resilience to manage challenges and chaos

  • Leaving work at work with recovery routines

You will be motivated and engaged through focused and tailored interventions in a non-judgmental and safe environment. 

I help parents go from overwhelmed to feeling supported and clear on their directions by giving them the toolkit they need to make it happen.
