Weekend Retreats

There are few questions harder or lonelier than ‘What should I do with my working life?’ We are often simply meant to know the answer – and a lot of people tend to be invested in us continuing along a safe and predictable path. But in private, some of us are acutely aware that we aren’t very happy where we are – and would love to find a way towards a job that truly fulfils our souls.

Tantalisingly, many of the answers we need better to direct our futures are inside us already, but we need help in getting them out, in making sense of them and in assembling them into a plan. The Heroine’s Journey offers Weekend Retreats  designed to guide us deftly towards the kind of jobs in which we can thrive. Clients are helped to think about their personal values, their key traits and interests and their careers and life experiences to date – and to consider them in the context of the world of work as it exists. Following the Weekend Retreat, a storytelling template is provided to help clients continue to write their story; follow-up virtual individual coaching sessions are welcome.
