Sophie Comas

Freelance Marketing Consultant

I am Sophie Comas, Founder of Rimu Marketing.  I am mother of 2 cheeky boys, aged 7yrs and 9yrs.  I am passionate about helping ambitious business owners to create effective marketing solutions and connect  with their ideal client, by using all assets in their marketing tool kit.  So how did Rimu Marketing come about?  Well, after being made redundant from my corporate marketing role I was looking for another challenge, and wanted something which worked around my family, I tried looking for other roles but could not find something that fitted.After a conversation with a friend who had a reflexology business and needed some marketing help I took the leap of faith and set up Rimu Marketing https://www.rimumarketing.co.uk.  Here I am 4 yrs later and loving my job!

Vicky Smith

Freelance assistant

Vicky Smith – Freelance Assistant

I am Vicky Smith and I am an experienced Personal Assistant and Administrator with over 10 years’ experience. I had my daughter in early 2016 and returned to work nine months later, however I soon came to realise that working traditional office hours was not going to work for my family. In September 2017 I decided to start offering my services in a freelance, flexible capacity to support small business. I undertake a wide range of tasks, from data entry to newsletter creation and content. My desire is to take those time-consuming admin tasks off of your hands; I free up your time so that you can focus on the running of your business!


Nicki Bass

Resilience Programme

I am Nicki Bass, Founder of the Resilient Women TM Adventure Project. As a former Army Officer with a Masters in Occupational Psychology, I am passionate about using the skills gained from 17 years in the military to help others achieve their potential. I am also a mum to two young children and have experienced how this can affect your confidence and risk perception and how this can impact on your sense of identity in the process.

As a result of my experiences I have developed the Resilient Women Adventure Project. Taking part in adventure sports not only challenges you, but is also stimulating, rewarding and helps to create authentic and lasting connections. Having always loved the adrenaline rush of adventure sports, I know that they also offer a really fun way to test your own beliefs of what you are capable of achieving. Combining these activities with facilitated small group coaching allows you to explore and reflect on your own motivations and fears in a unique experiential environment with a group of like-minded women. I offer 1 day, weekend and week-long workshops combining adventurous sports and mindset coaching for all levels of ability.

If you would like to find out more about the workshops or my one to one coaching programme, please get in touch at www.resiliencework.co.uk

Maria Harding

Social Media Strategy and Marketing

I am Maria Harding, founder and director of Four31 Digital, www.four31digital.com, a South West-based social media marketing agency.  Having worked in leadership roles pre-family, I started the business in 2017 in order to have a family-friendly career to work around the school run. We help charities, public and private sector organisations, who want a flexible resource, to enable them to leverage their social media platforms to drive their business goals using best practice.  In 2018, we were a Finalist in the Digital & Online Media category of the Venus Awards Devon & Cornwall.  It is my passion to help organisations to identify, engage with and then successfully leverage their target audience with the power of social media.




Debbie Smith


I am Debbie Smith. I’m a mother of two, age 5 and nearly 3, and after my own experiences of finding my style and confidence after having children, I started Stylingmumlife as a way to share my experiences and hopefully inspire other mums to use style to help them build confidence and feel great about themselves.
I am passionate about learning and I love sharing my knowledge with others. I am currently a Digital Mum-in-training, which means I’m addicted to social media right now (you can find me on twitter, instagram and facebook). I’m also a qualified chartered accountant and chartered tax advisor with 15 years of experience, so I know a bit about that too! I also have a keen interest in personal development and I’m currently doing Step Up School with the Step Up Club, and love sharing what I’ve learned so far!
I’m in the process of exploring all of these different interests and hoping to find my purpose helping other mums who are going through a similar process and want to find their career purpose in the hours available to them.

Nadine Parnell

Well-being and Relaxation Support for Parents

Well-being and Relaxation Support for Mums

I’m Nadine Parnell. I’m Mum to amazing 5 year old twin boys.  It’s my passion to support Mums to ease the stress of parenting with Relaxation and Self-Care practices. After times of anxiety when I was younger, I trained in many of the healing modalities that I found so helpful.   For 15 years I have enjoyed working as a Therapist and Teacher, helping many people to reduce stress and create lasting peace of mind.  I worked one-to-one in private practice and also within hospitals, holistic centres including Neals Yard Therapy Rooms, community organisations with people who had experienced serious illness, homelessness, domestic abuse and drug and alcohol addiction, for workplace learning groups, care providers, pregnancy and parenting classes.

I have a deep knowledge of Aromatherapy, Breathing techniques, Mindfulness, Meditation, NLP, EFT tapping, Energy Re-balancing and many other stress relief methods. Over the past 5 years, I have explored the most useful ways to apply these techniques as a busy Mum, along with discovering new routes to bring more calm and connection to family life.  The heart of my work now is helping Mums to enjoy a happier state of being.  Parenting can be so challenging.  Learning skills to keep our stress levels low during the day can transform our health and the way we feel.  It lights me up to be able to share these practical, enjoyable tools.

Please contact me to find out how I can help you to be the peaceful, playful Mum you want to be, more of the time. I offer De-Stress Sessions for Mums, both in person and via Skype, and group relaxation classes and meet-ups in Gloucestershire.
