Testimonials

“Like most, I found the prospect and process of returning to work after having my baby a daunting one. However, this process was significantly eased by the support I received from Kerrith. I absolutely believe that this type of external input with regard to all aspects of working both whilst pregnant and with young children is vital to ensuring the return to work is a positive experience for all. Kerrith provided advice with regard to both practical and professional matters and assisted in my understanding of myself and the value I could bring.”
