ONE TO ONE SUPPORT
I offer one to one support therapy and coaching for motherhood, birth and perinatal trauma support and bespoke birth with confidence programme.
One to one support for motherhood
Maybe you are:
- Struggling with your experience or feelings towards being a mum – what you thought motherhood would be (maybe lots of coffee dates, playing in the park, magic moments) is actually feeling like a lot of hard work (constant piles of washing, housework, feeding your kids, babies/children that don’t sleep/behave like they should and no time for you) and you’re fed up with it all
- Feeling completely overwhelmed with the juggle of managing motherhood and life/work (you don’t feel like you’ve got enough time in the day, panicking that you’re dropping balls, feeling resentful that it’s all falling to you and you end up turning to your phone and wine as way to get through it)
- Noticing that you’re anxious, panicked and fearful all the time of all the things that could go wrong (the littlest thing can set of a series of catastrophic thoughts, your on Dr Google about everything, you can’t relax and sleeping when the baby sleeps is just impossible as you’ve got far too much to do)
- Constantly losing your sh*t with fits of your own toddler rage (screaming, throwing things across the room, mega meltdowns over the littlest of things and bed time is just a battle and then at night you lie there beating yourself up about how badly you’ve managed it all)
- Resentful towards your partner (fighting, huffy fits, he/she has it so much easier obviously)
- Worried about returning to work and how you’re going to manage it all (worry about how your child is going to cope, how you can manage a workload on no sleep and still do everything that you are)
- Attached to your to do list to the point it’s controlling everything and not allowing you to just have fun (yes!) and enjoy time with your kids and family as there’s always something to do
- Conscious that it looks like everyone else is nailing motherhood and you feel like you’re just hanging on by the skin of your teeth
Together we will help you to:
- Get curious about what’s really going on – why is it you’re feeling this way?
- Overcome any emotional blocks/beliefs/values which are constantly you driving to continue to push yourself to your maximum capacity and stopping you from looking after yourself
- Build up a toolkit of ways to manage this situation
- Increase your confidence and feelings of self worth
- Be more self compassionate to yourself and recognise all you ARE doing rather than
- Work out solutions to your situation
Working together will help you to feel:
- Amazing – you’ll realise how much you are actually doing and how well you’re doing (believe me!)
- Like you can keep it together (most of the time – you are human after all)
- A weight has been lifted off your shoulders
- Calmer, more relaxed and free
- Happier and content
- That you have more time and energy to do more of what you want to do
- Confident as a mother and human

One to one support for birthing with confidence
One to one support is the right support for you if you are:
- Feeling anxious about how painful birth might be
- Scared and confused
- Wanting a better birth than your last birth
- Planning a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC/HBAC)?
- Contemplating a homebirth and would like to discuss it with someone?
- Looking for independent support for Caesarean, Breech, Twins, VBAC/HBAC or any other non-standard birth
Or maybe you’re just not sure and you’d like someone to spend time going through all the birth options and scenarios with you to help feel super confident about birth.
Birth is such a momentous time and a cornerstone of your experience as a woman and mother. It can affect your life in so many ways both in the short and long term. I’ve yet to meet a woman who isn’t at least a little bit apprehensive about birth. You’re not alone in feeling like this! And sometimes the care we receive doesn’t help ease these feelings, neglecting our needs as individuals.
“FOR FAR TOO MANY, PREGNANCY AND BIRTH IS STILL SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS TO THEM RATHER THAN SOMETHING THEY SET OUT CONSCIOUSLY AND JOYFULLY TO DO THEMSELVES” - SHEILA KITZINGER

- Informed about birth and how to ensure that your birth preferences are supported
- Able to have the best birth on the day and including understanding what makes birth quicker, less painful and easier
- Excited about giving birth, regardless of where, how or when – you will be beaming the moment you go into labour
- That you have a toolkit you can quickly use on the day
And I can support your partner/partners to best support you because it’s a huge responsibility for them too.

- Four 60-90 minute sessions
- A huge toolkit of resources
- Free online courses for birth, breastfeeding, weaning
