About Us

Women can grow through experience

When you get knocked back you start to forget who you are or the journey you are on.

What we believe

Every woman is beautiful and different

No-one lives a chocolate box life. We get lost or stuck on our journey.

We try too hard to be someone we aren’t just because those around us feel that’s who we should be. We trip over unseen barriers and uneven playing fields. We fail, pick ourselves up, fail again and then doubt that we were ever good at this. We fall out, we repair relationships and wonder what our boundaries are. We are at our peak and then notice how our body changes as time passes, being less and less reliable. The goal we once thought was the pinnacle of everything is now only part of our story. We
want control over our life yet certainty seems more and more illusory.

We fall upwards.

women are unique and different

Becoming is a journey rich in experience to find who we are.

Becoming is dropping into our soul to live a full whole-centred life. 

Becoming is leaning-in to the difficult things life throws at us with other people to support us.

Becoming is valuing ourselves so that we can value other people. 

Becoming is being seen and being heard.

Becoming is leaving our mark on the world one tiny ripple at a time. 

We believe people grow through their lives into who they are

Why us?

We walk with you. Journeying with someone else means the walk is so much easier.  

We create safe spaces. The presence of someone who neither control nor abandons you, enables you to learn not to control or abandon yourself.  

We are normal. Life can be tough. The lows hangout alongside the highs as we try each day. Life is for living fully and centred whatever it throws at us. 

We share the wisdom. We have trodden in the steps of many wise and compassionate companions as we have, and continue to, walk our own journeys 

We give you the tools to thrive. You are like a diamond, shining brilliantly. You might just need help to polish a bit or turn towards the light from time to time, in order to reconnect to your brilliance.  

What underpins our work?

We believe that true shift comes from the intersection of psychological theory and real world experience. Our experience always provides us with a key resource for the journey. So too, the wisdom teachers who help us to approach the edge of change and make the leap forward. Research drawn from a breadth of depth psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and organisational behaviour complete the underpinning of the Becoming Journey.

The Becoming Journey gave me a supportive network, tools and encouragement to find my values and voice, to drop the struggle with my inner critic and listen to my inner mentor – all of which gives me confidence to go forward with more purpose and inner strength.

Tracey Williamson

It has been the most self-reflective learning journey I’ve undertaken and as such it has given far more self-awareness, at a deep level, than any other learning experience.  I step forward with greater confidence, courage and self-acceptance.

The Becoming Journey was different to any course I’d attended before – rather than learning new information or trying to improve one’s knowledge or skills, it guided us to look within ourselves and appreciate, accept and enhance our own thoughts, feelings and characteristics.  It has given me a new sense of confidence and peace.

Be prepared to reflect, deeply and fearlessly!  This isn’t your usual leadership / management course, but if you are willing to take the plunge, it’s definitely worth it.

The journey itself is quietly powerful. The aha-moments are deeply personal without feeling awkward. I discovered things about myself I didn’t know before and revisited some old places that needed dusting off and healing.  The calibre of women in the group is in itself an inspiration and yet we’re all humbly learning together.

The Becoming Journey has had a MASSIVE impact on me.  After many years I feel that I have truly unpicked all the layers that have built up over the years, challenged myself and now know that I AM ENOUGH!

Madeleine Milne
Managing Director / Women on Boards UK

The Becoming Journey has been a very impactful process and experience.  I feel I have gone on a journey of self-reflection and ultimately self-acceptance.  I didn’t really know what to expect from the course before I started but I am so glad and privileged to have experienced it and am sure a lot of the content will stay with me for many years to come.

If you feel stuck or know that you are not living your life to your full potential then this journey is for you.  You will get to know your compass and this will help to guide you going forward – reassured that you know who you are, how you wish to live your life and what is important to you.
