Since 2009, our team has focussed entirely on the career development of parents in the workplace. To support our core team of coaches, we work closely with our Panel of Experts who provide us with practical and specialised expertise in areas such as networking, image management, flexible working, confidence and stress management.


Our client testimonials highlight that our work has made a difference to return and retention rates following family-related leave. Our practical approach and ability to quickly understand a company's culture and tailor our approach accordingly has been highlighted by our clients as our key value-add. During our comprehensive workshops and coaching, we see employees leave with added confidence, tools and a support network to cope with the challenges of being a parent at work.


We have more than 20 years' experience in international learning, development and coaching for large organisations, across a wide range of sectors. Since 2009, we have worked with thousands of parents.

P&P has run our group maternity coaching sessions, providing support to women both before and after their maternity leave, for the past two years. They have tailored their workshops to reflect the requirements of our employees and have provided sound advice on how we can best support our working parents!

Helen Letchfield conducted a number of maternity coaching sessions. They were run in an informative, helpful and professional way and provided all the key materials required by the participants. Helpful support materials and checklists were made available. Helen's clear experience shone through, and her facilitation skills were very strong, specifically she handled sensitive questions very well. The feedback received was very strong.
