Back To Work Workshop – Helping New Mums Figure Stuff Out

Are you going back to work soon or have recently gone back to work after your maternity leave?

Some people find themselves dreading it. Some look forward to getting their brain back in action, getting dressed up and being able to take a coffee or lunch in peace. Many are a combination of both with a bit of self-doubt thrown in…

Can I still do my job? (Yes, you can) Will I be able to manage? (Yes, you will).

Adding in a spoonful of working mum guilt, a cup full of added responsibilities and a pot full of the juggling ahead makes it a challenging time. But by actively managing that transition back to work and being clear about your priorities – at work and at home – you can set yourself up to succeed in this new phase.

If you think that you could benefit from taking some time out to work through some of these thoughts and emotions, join us for our next workshop run by Dearbhalla Baviera, Executive Coach with a focus on Women in Business, on Saturday June 13th in Milltown Physiotherapy where we will help you:-

  • Get in the right and positive mindset to ramp up effectively when you get back to work
  • Clarify your objectives for the next 12-18 months at work and at home/in your life
  • Own your personal brand which is an important part of managing this transition
  • Prepare for any difficult conversations that you might need to have to help you set yourself up to succeed
  • Own this transition back to work as a working mum. It’s your career and your choices

Other themes that come up throughout the workshop include confidence, working mum guilt, assertiveness, and resilience – all key parts of navigating our career as successful women.

This workshop is an opportunity to learn, reflect, share experiences with like-minded women in similar situations. It always helps to know that you are not the only one in your situation.

The half day programme is run as a coaching style workshop – through listening, discussion and personal exercises which give you space to think on a personal level, you will walk away feeling energised, inspired and motivated to put in place the things that you can do to set yourself up to succeed.

Dearbhalla Baviera has been there. She went back to work as a Management Consultant after her first baby. She had time out at home after baby two during an international move and now after babies three and four (together!) she has set up her own business, Clearbird, as an Executive Coach and Consultant where her main focus is helping women in business to figure stuff out. This means navigating and succeeding from the mid career phase and beyond.

Reduce your injury risk & improve your efficiency in cycling

A lot of our patients are currently training for the Wicklow 100/200, Tour de Conomara, Ring of Kerry and even a Malin head to Mizen head cycle.  Hopefully this will be of interest and help make it a little easier on you!

A great informative piece from Cycling Weekly on improving cycling efficiency and reducing injury risk.

Research has shown that strength training – particularly in middle aged or masters cyclists – has a significant reduction in injury risk and improvement in cycling efficiency.
