The wellbeing of parents underpins all of my work – to provide information when needed but also support and reassurance, a listening ear, a comfortable space, along with – when needed – simple skills to deal with stress and feeling overwhelmed.
As a mum of three I know that being a parent is pretty special – it is amazing, demanding, wonderful, inspiring, overwhelming, rewarding, exhausting and emotional in equal measure.
There is guilt and juggling as well as a million different opinions on how to parent and our desperate need to get it right. It can be a tough gig!
My antenatal and postnatal training means I focus on you – the parent – and, with my life coach and relaxation training, I have enabled myself to work with you as your children grow and the family & personal challenges can shift.
This means I am able to provide unique support for parents to access – for information, to offload, for thinking space, for perspective, for reassurance, to feel supported.
It’s not always about answers but it is about informal groups, hot tea and some cake; it’s about one to one sessions to focus on what you need; it’s about ongoing support for you the parent and you, the person behind the parent.
It’s also about support and a warm welcome when there are additional mental health issues or if you have experienced the loss of a baby, which can be isolating.
The articles and blog posts on this website are an extension of my parent sessions – with different parent experiences and perspectives, along with tips and practical information, they are about boosting the wellbeing of parents.
