My Offerings

R

Discover Yourself in Motherhood

Since you became a mother, you feel conflicted. You’re supposed to be happy and fulfilled but deep down you feel a loss of identity and direction. You have no time for yourself and your dreams; your feelings are not addressed, leaving you unhappy and unfulfilled.

R

Find the Perfect Balance

You’re worried that having a career would mean the destruction of a healthy family life. You’re constantly in fear of making bad choices and decisions that could compromise your family. Your confidence takes a hit as you prioritize everybody else before you, juggling motherhood and work.

R

Control Time and Emotions

Every single minute of your day is occupied and your energy is always drained. You don’t have the time or energy to learn new skills making you feel unaccomplished. You’re subject to the imposter syndrome, affecting your parenting, relationships, and emotional well being. You feel frustrated and vulnerable.

About Me as a Coach

Dr Lucy Davey

–MBBS BSc–

Hi!

I have always been a high achiever with expectations to excel in all I did. I trained as a medical doctor, transitioned into the fascinating world of Psychiatry and was excited by opportunities in the business and entrepreneurial sector. My priorities changed several years ago in my early 30s when I wanted to have a family, particularly when my mother was given a cancer diagnosis. I took a sabbatical from my clinical career to project manage our family home whilst pregnant, assist my husband in his expansive renewable energy project and be a “hands on” mother to my children throughout their early years.

However, with time I began to feel a loss of identity and a craving for more. Motherhood had changed me and I didn’t really know who I was anymore. I felt I had sacrificed my career and with it my individuality. Whilst supporting those around me that I loved, I began to feel that my own needs somehow had been overlooked.

With considerable effort and self reflection, I realised I needed to be true to my values, set clear and realistic goals for what I wanted in my new life. That is when I discovered and trained in acceptance and commitment therapy, as well as visualisation and resilience. My professional background, trained to a very high standard in the art of communication skills, and of course being a mother myself optimized my skillset as a coach.

I now get to work with and help so many professional and executive women as well as women of affluence create a new business, career or not for profit venture of their own.

Dr Lucy Davey holds a Bachelor Degree in Medicine and Surgery and a 1st class Degree with Hons in Biomedical Science. She is a Coach that is frequently featured in the media with celebrity clients.
