NEW: Listen to me on BBC Radio 4 Women's Hour in conversation with Jane Garvey and Dr Ginette Carpenter
I'm Beth Follini - Life/Work Coach. I'm most known for my unique 'niche' in coaching women struggling with the decision whether to have children or not. I also coach clients on a range of other issues including career coaching, work/life balance, developing confidence and leadership skills.
I coach clients face-to-face (in the City of London & in East Dulwich and I use Skype/telephone to coach clients living outside London. I have coached clients living US, Canada, Australia, Africa and mainland Europe and clients living throughout the UK.
'I came to Beth because I was in a panic about the decision to have children or not. I was afraid to make the wrong decision and regretting this forever. I have come to realise that there is no wrong or right decision and that I can live with the decision that I make. I feel that I have fully explored the issue and am relieved to know that I will not look back on this time in my life and think that I didn't have the courage to address it head on. Taking the time (6 months) to explore the question with Beth was the best thing I could have done to enable me to move forward on the decision.' - Cassie, 39, London
