The spectrum of emotions of motherhood

Posted on

I’ve been reflecting the last few weeks about how challenging mothering is at times and it’s something that feels like such a taboo to talk about.  There’s no other role that I know of in the world where we are pushed to our limits as much as being mums.  It’s the spectrum of emotions we […]

It’s the everyday actions…

One of the things I know coming up for some of the mums I’m working with is managing the summer holidays and I know it’s something that’s also far too relevant to me.   There’s things I do almost every day to keep me in feeling good.  These are EFT, journaling and meditation.  Most days […]

Compassion and motherhood – where does your compassion go?

Why Mums Matter

Posted on

Mums matter was the theme of maternal mental health awareness week last week. This is an important topic, we don’t talk about it enough. When I was first a mum I would have absolutely never, ever, ever considered that I mattered. I didn’t consider how I felt in my pregnancy mattered, all I cared about […]

When I launched the pilot for Overcome the Overwhelm… I kept getting messages from my friends saying… “I’m loving what you’re doing and I’m so tempted myself… except I don’t have the time to commit”.   …. The great thing is… you only literally need 5 minutes a day to make a significant change to […]

Are you feeling like this?

Posted on

I’ve been working with an increasing number of women feeling really overwhelmed, frazzled and like they’re just not coping. They feel anxious, guilty, fed up, resentful, tired and just generally overloaded. In 2015 I discovered a quick (if not weird looking) tool to help me called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique – also known as tapping). […]
