Consultations For You

Consultations For You

These are consultations for you, the person behind the parent, to work through different family and personal challenges while balancing the needs of being a parent.

Going beyond the postnatal period, these are confidential and
non-judgemental sessions to focus on the issues affecting you, as you and your children get older and the challenges change.

Life can be busy and you may be juggling the needs of your family with work, being a partner and trying to meet your own needs. These consultation sessions are about having more clarity and focus and being better equipped for juggling the different demands and managing the chaos of family life, while also looking after you.

  • being a parent

  • developing effective coping strategies

  • talking through the parenting, work or family challenges
  • managing stress and boosting your wellbeing

  • needing to focus on themselves

  • a calm, knowledgeable approach
  • working with an experienced practitioner
  • notes & resources
  • ongoing support and reassurance
  • help to develop practical and personalised strategies & plans

Consultations For You: I run sessions with parents 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 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.

Consultations For You: what parents say

“Thank you so much for listening and caring. Our session made a huge difference.”

“Our 1:1 sessions were so positive, really helped me to refocus and to plan.”

“I needed space to think and offload and make sense of what I need as part of my family. Juggling the needs of my family, work and trying to do it all was becoming overwhelming.”

Book your consultations

Ideal for all parents who have children, to focus on the different personal and parenting challenges, and you can book sessions to take place over a few months.

You can just book here and message me below to arrange your sessions.

I work with parents from across the country so consultations will be over video call. However, if you live in the Newcastle & Tyneside area, it may be possible to arrange in-person sessions.

Why I run consultations for you…

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 teenagers, 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 parents 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.

Please feel free to message me here with any queries.
