We are the Power of the Parent team!

Through strengths based coaching and workshops we are positively challenging the experience of parents in the workplace. Whether it’s preparing for or returning from parental leave, engaging people further into parenthood or partnering with line managers who are engaging their teams, Power of the Parent has got you covered.

Charlotte Speak


I’m Charlotte Speak, mum of two, change maker and coach for parents in the workplace, empathetic listener and avid theme park explorer.

I work with businesses to help attract, retain and develop their utterly brilliant team members who happen to be parents.

I don’t finish books if they haven’t got me hooked in the first two chapters. I’m partial to time outdoors. And my values around family, authenticity and creativity lead the way in everything I do.


Tania Lopez


I’m Tania Lopez, as well as working for Power of the Parent I have my own business – Full Circle Hypnotherapy – where I am a creator of peace and Harmony.

I am a qualified teacher, consellor and hypnotherapist and I help both parents and children thrive.

I love travel and discovery, notably Peru and it’s Pisco Sours! I love exploring where I live, visiting the museums and art galleries on my doorstep. I believe in being kind to yourself, no matter the outcome.


Shwezin Win


I’m Shwezin Win, as well as working for Power of the Parent I have my own business – Win at Life – where I teach people the magic of believing in themselves.

My passion is to champion working parents, helping to ensure it’s not a choice and that parents can thrive at home and at work. I love making a positive difference to others.

I love good company, celebrating the little things and I have a very sweet tooth! Give me champagne and chocolate any time and I am a happy bunny!

Jo Lawrence - Associate

What is strengths based coaching?

Have you picked up a narrative from parents in your organisation that they’re not totally sure who they are anymore? Perhaps you’ve heard phrases like ‘I don’t know where I add value’ or ‘am I still good at my job?’ The repercussions of questioning who we are and what we’re great at can be huge. Couple that with line managers feeling lost at how to support parents and you’ve got a perfect storm. Strengths based coaching can help transform these thoughts and feelings though, and brilliantly equip EVERYONE with a stronger sense of who they are, boost their self-esteem and have a fantastic impact on engagement, well-being and overall performance. Working with strengths at the heart of our approaches, we will help parents re-connect with what energises them, how they want to show up day to day and help them demonstrate all of the strengths they have in a really meaningful way. We’re not just talking about skills and competencies here – it’s a much bigger conversation taking into account everybody’s differences and valuing what we all bring to the workplace.


Celebrating your
wonderfully unique culture and environment

There are so many commonalities when it comes to the challenges our clients face, but the environments and cultures are wonderfully unique.

That’s why we don’t offer ‘off the shelf’ stand and deliver type approaches – the benefit of working with Power of the Parent is that we are the perfect sized operation to tailor any activity to your needs.
