It is easy to let circumstances get in the way and let goals, dreams and hopes become a reality. It is easy to let roadblocks prevent progress, to stumble on, avoiding tricky situations.
For some, imposter syndrome or coping with the fear of failure, without an adequate support system or emphasis on personal development in the workplace, can lead to a lack of confidence and assertiveness and hinder people’s ability to reach for the stars.
Mentoring sessions with Lucy create an environment where she provides a listening ear and the mentee will feel someone is available to:
- Listen, provide empathy and re-assurance
- Help identify problems
- Provide a fresh perspective, seeing an issue through fresh lenses
- Help to make better informed decisions and achieve goals
- Provide additional insights from her personal experiences, vast knowledge and successes
Mentoring can be a very formal process with regular meetings and work towards a specific set of goals. It can also be an informal arrangement, where the mentee calls on the mentor as and when problems or needs arise.
One-to-one or group mentoring sessions with Lucy are organised in a confidential, trusted, private environment where individuals can express their ideas and thoughts. She will provide a sounding board and be a supportive cheerleader.
Motivation is the key to action for all of us.

“From the moment we began our first meeting I knew I was in the company of someone who had a world of knowledge and experience under her belt. More than that though, she really empathised with my sense of overwhelm and immediately reassured me that I could do this. Her ability to break large obstacles down into bite sized achievable tasks really set the wheels in motion. The fear I felt began to dissipate and I approached my tasks with joy and excitement.”
