Coaching For Mums

These coaching sessions are for you, the person behind the parent, to work through different challenges while balancing being a parent.

These are confidential and non-judgemental sessions to focus on the issues affecting you.

Mums book sessions with me for different reasons…

  • adapting to being a mum
  • loss of identity
  • feeling overwhelmed and in need of some thinking space
  • managing everyday anxiety
  • needing better life balance
  • developing effective coping strategies
  • talking through the motherload
  • working through different parenting, work & family challenges
  • managing stress and boosting your wellbeing
  • being the parent you want to be

You will benefit from:

  • a calm, knowledgeable approach
  • working with an experienced practitioner
  • notes & resources
  • ongoing support and reassurance

I run sessions with mums during and beyond the postnatal period

Being a parent can be an all-consuming job with little time left to focus on you, your own wellbeing, ambitions and the balancing act that your life may well involve.

These sessions are about focusing on your needs, while also being mindful of how these needs fit in with also meeting the needs of your family.

Your coaching sessions are not about being told what to do and they are not counselling, they are a chance to focus on what is needed for you and for your family.

You can book blocks of sessions to have continued information, support and reassurance.

My Story

I have worked with expectant and new parents since 2002 and I trained as a coach in 2016 to be able to work with parents beyond the postnatal period.

As a mother of two, I am very aware of balancing family, work and me, along with the motherload, managing stress and keeping going so I can also be the parent I want to be. Having the opportunity to offload and to focus on the challenges can mean better communication, change, better balance and less stress.

There isn’t a lot of ongoing support for mums beyond the early postnatal period but there are many challenges as our children get older, which impact stress, wellbeing and relationships – ongoing support can be crucial.
