Girlie Gatherings network in Rotherham expands

A new Rotherham network set up to help women build confidence and self-esteem has expanded with the appointment of an additional group leader.

Girlie Gatherings was registered as a social enterprise in June 2015 by Julie Hampshire, to make life coaching accessible and affordable to all women.

Julie, a life coach herself, has since held monthly meetings at Wath-on-Dearne.

Now, Joanne Outrum from Ravenfield, has become a licensee and will hold her own Girlie Gatherings in Wickersley.

Joanne said: “I went to a few meetings and found the topics so interesting. As well as subjects relating to personal development the meetings covered alternative interests, such as numerology – all topics that are out there but we don’t know anything about.

“When you have been through a difficult period it can be hard to put yourself back out there to meet new people. I had shied away from networking as I had lost that confidence but I found Girlie Gatherings to be something completely different.

“To a certain extent it is networking, but on a very relaxed and more personal level.
