Caroline Love (Caroline Love Coaching)
If you spend your life working hard, running a family, racing around all over the place and not having any time for joy in your life, Step off your Stilettos can teach you to take a step back and address your work life balance issues. You may not have enough time for everything you want to do, be in the wrong job, or just be stuck in a rut and need to examine the possibilities open to you. Your work life balance problems could even be the other way round. Is procrastination a problem? Are you overwhelmed with all the things you need to do and finding it difficult to see the wood for the trees?
Step off your Stilettos workshops encourage you to take time out from your busy schedule and give your head and feet a treat. The workshop includes some coaching to help reach your work life balance goals, foot care advice for those poor overworked feet and some relaxation techniques to help you de-stress and unwind.
Additionally Step off your Stilettos offers bespoke one to one coaching programmes for people who want to spend time on the things they want to do as well as the things they have to do.
N.B. you do not have to wear stilettos to benefit from the services we offer.
I am passionate about work life balance. I found out the hard way that it is easy to lose sight of your priorities and get caught up in the daily grind ofwork and the related pressures. I spent many hours working and studying and going home to do the things we need to do at home. I was a consummate juggler. There wasn’t a lot of time to take a moment to enjoy life and have some fun.
The sudden death of my son just days before his 13th birthday forced me to completely re-evaluate my life. The pain was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. The one thing I knew was that my work was suddenly not the highest priority in my life. I knew that my life had to change and become more balanced - with life outside work taking a much greater priority than it had previously.
This tragedy bought home to me the necessity to make my life the best it could be. I wanted it to be multi-dimensional rather than one sided. I still wanted to enjoy my work (and let’s face it, work isn’t really optional for many people) but I wanted to do other stuff too - like travelling, making time for people, having fun and generally living life to the full
I live in Herne Bay with my daughter who I'm immensely proud of. In the last few years I have tried to 'seize the moment' a bit more and have travelled to all sorts of places and tried things I never thought I would. Later this year on what would have been my son's 21st birthday I'm planning to do a wing-walk for charity as it was something he really wanted to do - he even wrote to Utterly Butterly who were sponsoring the planes at the age of 10 when they were asking for volunteers! - so now I'll do it on his behalf and I'm quite scared about it
