“Let all the stuff that’s been holding you back drop to the floor and kick it into touch”
– Laura Ridout
Sisters Circle is a safe coaching space for small groups of women to come together and be coached around their uncertainties, hopes, fears and doubts on taking a leap into a more fruitful and fulfilling work life.
NEW 'stride into your strength'
This is a new programme that will focus on finding your strength to overcome what’s holding you back
What’s the biggest thing that holds women back from achieving what they want?
Fear hates an uncertain outcome. So when we try to do something that takes us into the realms of the unknown, our fear is activated. Why? Because it’s there to protect us. Check out the details
Women at any stage can feel stuck and frustrated in their work for many reasons.
Do any of these sound like you?
- Reaslisation that the job you’re in is the cause of your unhappiness in life
- The job that you’re in is stressful and leading to burnout
- You’ve been made redundant, want a fresh start but don’t know how to do it
- You’re dreaming of starting your own business but can’t define what that might be
- You’re undecided on keeping your own business or going for employed work
- You’re looking for that dream job but think you lack the ability
- You’re wanting that promotion but you don’t feel you have the confidence
- Retirement is looming but you don’t want to stop working or can’t afford to stop
- You just aren’t making enough money – you feel undervalued
Taking on any of these challenges on your own becomes a lonely and overwhelming task. We feel unable to deal with our situation and so we stay stuck. We tolerate it.
We shouldn’t be just ‘tolerating’ what is a huge part of our life. That’s why I bring women together in groups of 6 and through techniques designed by women for women, we make that journey of discovery together.
If this sound like something you want but you’d like to chat through with me to check, read on and/or send me a message to arrange a call. No obligation. It’s important that this is right for you and that you’re right for the group.
I can’t wait to hear from you, Laura

How it works
There will be a maximum of six women in your circle. It’ll be 5 x 3 hour sessions every alternate week over 10 weeks using Zoom.
As a member of the group, you will build on each other’s strengths and learn from each other’s life experience. This is what makes it so powerful and what makes your outcome so unexpected. It was there all along – you just didn’t know it or you didn’t have the courage to make it happen
5 x 3 hour sessions of group coaching
1 x 1 hour one to one coaching session – to be booked either during or after the group sessions

Sisters Circle allowed me to explore my feelings, my dreams and my limiting beliefs, in a safe environment. By meeting same minded people was such an inspiration to me. I have achieved more than I expected on many levels. I now believe in me and in what I can achieve.
Sisters Circle is the perfect inspiring platform for women who need professional support in achieving their dreams of a new job, career or life work balance, but feel stuck or have no idea where to start.
Laura provides a safe environment, that creates honest, powerful, challenging and exciting conversations, combined with humour, which help you eradicate those blocks that have stopped you achieving your goals. Laura has your best interests at heart in helping you on your journey of self- discovery. I would highly recommended Sisters Circle to those women who feel stuck, lost or have a business idea they don’t know how to get off the ground.
The sister circle provided a safe and professional space for sharing and exploring ideas, feelings and concepts. Laura is a pleasure to work with, she is down to earth and has a wonderful blend of professionalism and coaching combined with mother earth. She encourages others to share their wisdom, experiences and knowledge that creates trust, allowing a platform for self-discovery and encourages freedom. I would recommend the sister circle to women of all ages who feel stuck, undervalued or frustrated with life. Thank you Laura for bringing together women to create a community to empower each other.
I think when embracing change in your life, it is important to give yourself time to work through what you truly want and what you absolutely don’t. I identified my key problem which I probably knew but it made me face that I was procrastinating over quite a few things in my life!
The sessions were extremely powerful in being able to share, I felt that my mountain to climb was not as difficult as I thought and I had some helpful steers along the way.
The sisters circle is a very supportive place to work this through with very helpful resources which are there to enable that process.
Stride into your Strength
‘Stride into your Strength’ is for women who want to live a more creative life but are held back by fear. Here’s a list of some of the things you might be afraid of: Afraid you don’t have the talent, afraid you’ll be rejected, afraid nobody would want your offer, afraid that somebody has already done it better, afraid that your aspirations are embarrassing and so on and so on.
What we need to learn is how to manage our fear. We need to know that scary is ok. In fact it’s more than ok. It’s how we grow and live our best life.
Elizabeth Gilbert in her book Big Magic says ‘fear is a desolate boneyard where our dreams go to desiccate in the hot sun’. Need I say more?
Join my Sisters Circle of 6 women and Stride into your Strength.
I will take you through 4 x 2 hour sessions of group coaching. During this time:
- You will gain an understanding of the concept of fear, how it lives in your life and how to manage it
- You will learn embodiment strategies using female archetypes to give you strength, power and resilience
- You will be given a ‘tool box’ of strategies to help you when the voice of fear kicks in.
- You will have the love and support from your ‘sisters’ in the group
Please contact me and lets have a chat to see if this is right for you
Laura isn’t the voice in your head, Laura IS the voice in your head if you were SMART! If you had time to really think deeply about the why’s. Why you waste time, why you are hard on yourself, why you put others first. Then she is the How, how to be motivated, how to find the joys in your life, how to gain confidence and of course FINALLY she is the WHEN, when is NOW. Laura understands that a small change now and lots of consequent small changes lead to the life you strive for. AND whilst you are listening and learning she radiates such understanding and support, that feel you CAN actually move forward. Laura is exceptionally talented, some people have her knowledge but not her gift as a coach to evoke REAL CHANGE. Grab this opportunity to work with her before it’s too late and she is so successful, all we can do is read her book and dream. Laura is on her way up and we are lucky right now to be able speak to her in person. Imagine having access to Oprah before she became famous.
Oh Beehave Productions
I joined Sisters Circle whilst at a crossroads of employment v self-employment, but little did I know that I would learn SO much about me! – from realising and acknowledging personal values, understanding how they affect me in the everyday, realigning them to make me happy and ultimately more productive, to understanding more about the flow of energy throughout each stage of my cycle and how to get the best from my energies and when to allow myself some breathing space without the guilt!
Laura is a fabulous mentor and I have thoroughly enjoyed this journey with my fellow Sisters.
At 56 I was made redundant. I felt that this wasn’t a great age for this to happen to me. It was a shock and I felt rejected. I didn’t want to feel like this.
I rushed into trying to solve my situation.
I wrote down my work experience and the skills and knowledge that I’d gained over the years. I started looking for work that I knew I could do. Work that I had done already. I began applying for jobs.
I got an interview for a job that was similar to roles that I’d done. I overlooked that my employer expected the team to be in the office every day. I’m used to working mostly from home and this was something that I valued. If I took this job I would be travelling a long distance every day and working in an office.
I hadn’t stopped to consider what I really wanted next in my life.
I had only considered my work experience. I hadn’t reflected back on my career to think about what I’ve learned about myself and the people that I have worked with. I forgot to include the difference that I’d made to people and communities. I didn’t think about me as a mother, wife, sister, grandmother. I didn’t contemplate the love, the loss and the life that has shaped me.
I didn’t take the job. I took more time out to plan what I wanted. I stopped using my head and switched to using my heart. I focused on what I love doing and when I felt most happy in my career which is helping people to change what isn’t working for them. So I went freelance.
That was five years ago. I help women to find the courage and confidence to create a career path that brings them joy so that they can live a fulfilling and fruitful life. More than half of women are dissatisfied with their work.
Lack of confidence, fear and self-limiting beliefs keep women stuck.
So I’m inviting you to join my Sisters’ Circle because I believe in unleashing the energy, the creativity, the courage and wisdom of women so that they can reach their potential.
