ONE TO ONE SUPPORT

One to one support for women through all stages of motherhood

Maybe you are:

  • Noticing that you’re anxious, panicked and fearful all the time of all the things that could go wrong.
  • Constantly googling anything in case it’s something terrible
  • Unable to sleep when the baby sleeps or the kids are in bed as you’ve got too much to do and you’re completely unable to relax 
  • 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)
  • 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:

  • Gain insight and understanding into what’s going on 
  • Clear any blocks/beliefs/values which are constantly you driving to continue to push yourself to your maximum capacity and stopping you from looking after yourself
  • Heal any past experiences which are impacting you now 
  • Define boundaries 
  • Build up a toolkit of resources so you’re fully able to manage these situations calmly and easily 
  • Increase your confidence and self esteem 
  • Utilise compassion towards yourself and others  
  • Identify what changes needs to happen to ensure that you’re happy and fulfilled 
  • Let go of what you need to and do more of what you want to

Working together will help you to feel:

  • Happy as your needs will be met, you’ll be managing life much more easily and you’ll be able to handle difficult situations well
  • Confident as you’ll have a toolkit of resources to face situations head on rather than making excuses 
  • Calmer and more patient each and every day 
  • Like yourself again as you’ll have time and energy to do what you choose to do 
  • Stop thinking 24/7 and have freedom from your thoughts 
  • Positive about meeting new people, going to new situations and trying out new things without the fear of a panic attack or embarrassing yourself 
  • Live every day in the now and relax into spending time with the kids or being with your partner as you know how important this time is rather than thinking about all the other things you could be doing 
  • Relaxed and finally get a good night’s sleep without worrying about all the things in your life 
  • Able to get out of bed and able to focus on what’s truly important

“I am so grateful to have discovered Tricia. She has been a great crutch in tough times and a very supportive EFT teacher. Learning basics of EFT has brought me a great sense of empowerment and a few minutes of daily use help me keep my long term anxiety in check for the first time in years. Every so often I touch base with a one-to-one session to check how things are or delve a little deeper and feel a huge improvement to my quality of life. Thank you Tricia for your support and and you judgement-free and humorous approach.”
"Having had my first baby during lockdown, I struggled with loneliness and how difficult the situation had been and how different things were to how I had expected and planned. I lost a lot of confidence in myself and felt like a burden to my family and friends so I reached out to Tricia as a starting point to clear my head and “vent”, having been recommended her by a friend. I am SO glad that I did - firstly, I felt like we’d known each other for a long time which helped me open up and really try new techniques to overcome my issues. Tricia was open, kind and friendly and I feel completely got what I was trying to achieve instantly. Working together was a breath of fresh air (although I appreciate being pushed out my comfort zone at times) to get the results we had set out to achieve. I feel so much better and more like myself. My head feels clearer and I feel stronger to socialise and enjoy exercise again. Thank you."

Calmer You Clarity Session - get clear on how to feel happier, calmer and more like you again

How would you like to be clear on how to feel happier, calmer and more like you again?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious and stressed out and don’t know where to start then this is for you. 

Here’s what your life may look like right now:

  • Your head is full of churning thoughts that you can’t think straight or rationally and going through all the scenarios each and every time and you’re exhausted from it 
  • You’re struggling to relax with this knot in your stomach that just won’t let you settle  
  • You’re quick to anger and find yourself going from 0 to 100 in 2 milliseconds 
  • You’ve tried breathing and meditation and nothing works – in fact, at times you’re even more overwhelmed and you could be getting on with so much in that time 
  • You’re busy trying to get life right and everything under control that you’ve forgotten how to just enjoy life and your kids 

In your 60 minute session, we’ll focus on where you want to get to, how you’ll get there and what you need to do, as well as how to eliminate any barriers that may stop you. 

This session is ideal for you if you know that you need a kickstart and you want someone to help you find a clear pathway forward so you can focus easily, but aren’t sure if a long term support package is for you. 

On booking, you’ll complete a questionnaire to help me get a full understanding of where you’re at and what you’d like to achieve from this session. This ensures the session is super laser focussed and we can maximise our 60 minutes. 

The investment is £97.  Sessions are recorded and available to you for 7 days after our session.

“Tricia came through general recommendation from my midwife. I’d been struggling with PTSD symptoms from my daughter’s birth which were coming to the fore during my second pregnancy. I felt really unsure what was going to work as I’d already tried a few weeks of an NHS course which I felt was too general for my specific birth trauma. Tricia clearly explained the process of REWIND therapy to me on our initial call and I felt at ease with her from the get-go. Being a mum and all the birth experience she has as a doula allowed me to feel listened too and it was easy for me to open up to her. REWIND is one of the most powerful things I’ve ever gone through. I found the release hugely cathartic as it allowed me to remember the strength I had and the positives I had experienced within a really hard time. Tricia was so careful with me and her guidance was amazing. After two sessions, I was feeling so much better and we had another call after two weeks to see how I was doing. I’m so pleased to say it’s completely worked for me. I still recognise what I went through but it’s without the fear and upset I was experiencing. That wouldn’t have happened without Tricia.”

One to one support for birthing with confidence

One to one support is the right support for you if you are:

  • Feeling anxious or fearful about any aspect of giving birth 
  • Have tokophobia – extreme fear of childbirth 
  • Scared and confused and not sure what to do 
  • Wanting a better birth than your last birth 
  • Looking for independent support for Homebirth, 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!

“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

Working together I will help you to feel:

  • Confident in your decisions around birth including place of birth, pain relief, mode of birth, all choices and decisions 
  • Informed about birth and how to ensure that your birth preferences are supported

  • 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.

Investment is £550 and includes:

  • Four 60-90 minute sessions
  • A huge toolkit of resources
  • Email and voicemail support right up until you give birth
  • Telephone debrief after you give birth

One off sessions can be booked in for caesarean birth planning and this costs £120 for a 90 minute session.

“I came across the Tricia’s preparation programme when pregnant on my second child. I was about 30 weeks and my midwife was asking more about mode of delivery and suddenly my first son’s emergency c section delivery, that I thought was “dealt with” came flooding back and all the negative elements of it were full force on my mind. I was terrified of the idea of dealing with medical staff , of not feeling listened to and having to be in hospital full stop. I didn’t know what to do with all these thoughts and feelings and just thought I’ll have to go with the flow again and hope for a better experience. Not so!! I did some preparation work with Tricia and felt I clicked with her from the start. Through chatting and tapping with EFT about my anxieties and using her endless list of people and resources, I changed from the midwife who I wasn’t happy with, decided on and organised a home birth, and most importantly got my husband on board too with the idea. Tricia gave a lot of support to my husband too by means of information, people to contact regarding his fears around a home birth. We had the HBAC birth we wanted and felt assertive and in control the whole way as a result of realising and dealing with our fears. I’m really glad I did the coaching programme with Tricia as I feel a lot more assertive in general around dealing with professionals even now when it comes to me or my kids.”
