Candice Sunney BSc (Hons), PGDip, MBPsS, MAC
I have been coaching and training for 17 years in diverse industries including Operations Management in the travel industry, and personal leadership development.
The transition to postgraduate studies and then parenthood while working knocked me for six, so I did what came naturally I researched as much as I could and drew on my studies, finding novel ways to apply it in my life. I am now doing better than ever using Parenthood, and the new meaning I felt about becoming a parent, as a catalyst to create my best possible life, both as a parent and as an entrepreneur. My life's passion is to help you do the same.
Areas I particularly focus on are your strengths, what works, work/life balance, personal leadership, confidence, energy & motivation.
I offer 1-1 coaching, online or in person in Nottinghamshire and a 6-week online introduction to Mindfulness course.

Further specialist work with working parents:
The highs and lows and Impact of Parenting on your life and work begin at conception, so I start working with parents during pregnancy.
I offer an 8-week group online Positive Mindful Pregnancy programme - this programme works on increasing your pregnancy and work life wellbeing and parenting confidence. The programme aims to tap into your parenting instinct. It is designed to complement other birth preparation classes, which focus more on the medical aspects of labour and childbirth. The benefits don't stop with parenting; I help you apply them also to your working life, allowing you to feel more engaged and less exhausted with your work.
Add on a birthing workshop which covers birthing confidence, breathing techniques and positive birthing visualisation and meditations, which you can take as an individual or as a couple.
For Parents of 1-5-year-old
An 8-week Positive Mindful Parenting programme which moves past wellbeing and parenting confidence to assist parents to use their parenting instinct to work as a team allowing everyone to flourish in all aspects of life.
