Overcome the Overload NEW | Therapeutic Coaching Support for Birth and Motherhood

Overcome the Overload ​

Overcome The Overload is the membership for mums who are consciously choosing to be calmer, saner and happier so they can be the best mums that they can be​.

Does it feel like everyone else has got motherhood nailed? 

Meanwhile you: 
 
Lose your shit with your kids way too often.
 
Use TV and other electronic babysitters because you’re totally drained and playing right now just isn’t on the cards.
 
Bedtime is full of tears and tantrums – yours and theirs.
 
Feel anxious over everything.  
 
You have no energy and spend so much time procrastinating and not able to make decisions.
 
Feel snappy and resentful of your partner (they have it so much easier right?).
 
Constantly say “I have no time” but you scroll your phone and get caught up in things which are a complete waste of time and you end up feeling pissed off and lethargic.
 
Wish you were being present and engaging with your kids, but honestly… you’re just too tired and bored and fed up.  
 
End up eating all the kids chocolate as you’ve just feeling so low and fed up that you deserve a treat then spend the rest of the night regretting it and promising yourself you won’t do it tomorrow.
 
Are obsessed with your to-do list but to the point it’s ruling your life.
 
Beat yourself up when things aren’t perfect and feel like you’re not good enough.
 
Chores and a perfect house come above time for you or spending time with your kids.
"Overcome the overload has had such a positive effect on my life. The Monday evening sessions are incredibly beneficial. Not only do I always sleep well afterwards but my ability to cope with the daily stresses in life has improved dramatically. I am a much calmer mum who is beginning to understand the importance of taking time out to do something for myself (no matter how small).”
  • You’re so done losing your temper with your kids.
  • You’re so done with bedtime/mealtime battles.
  • You’re so done with feeling irrational. 
  • You’re so done having no energy to enjoy the day.
  • You’re so done being fed up feeling fed up.
  • You’re so done not being able to manage your kids behaviour.
  • You’re so done arguing with your husband about who has it worse.
  • You’re so done with playing martyr.
  • You’re so done having no time.
  • You’re so done with rushing around all the time.
  • You’re so done with feeling panicky and stressed out that you’re going to forget things.
  • You’re so done with the constant chores and relentlessness of the housework.

When you're feeling wiped out by motherhood, you can't show up as the mum you want to be.

Here’s the thing:
 
We were never meant to parent alone.
 
We are meant to live in tribes and communities, parenting together.
 
The idea that women ‘should’ be the main ones responsible for children and the home is a completely outdated belief system that we are constantly internally fighting with.
 
Parenting used to mean making sure your child survived to adulthood.
 
Now parenting is about what age your baby can walk, who says the first word, which extra curricular classes your child is doing and how many foreign languages they can speak.  
 
And if you don’t do this stuff… well, you feel like a total failure.
 
Comparison after comparison which makes you feel entirely rubbish.

Let's redefine modern parenting

Take this societal pressure off our shoulders and live your life the way you want with your own rules.
 
Realising that the more time you do things that light your passion, the more you can do and want to do with your kids and family.  You matter.  
 
Prioritising activities that you enjoy over what you feel you ‘should be’ doing with your child because everyone else is.
 
Slowing down – running around all the time means you get exhausted and frazzled and you are missing all those moments of connection with your kids, family and friends.
 
Focussing on doing more of what you want to do and less of the things that drain your energy.
 
Organising support is wise as it gives you the chance to do all the things you want to do. 
 
Building a genuine support network – people who you actually want to be with – not just because you gave birth at the same time and feel you ‘should’ be friends.

Imagine if you could do all that and...

  • Be the parent you want to be… playing, being present and enjoying days with your kids without being desperate for bed time.
  • Get to end of the day keeping your shit together.
  • Handle your kids’ meltdowns, inane questioning and constantly nagging and accept your children for who they are, without trying to ‘fix’ everything.
  • Reduce addictive behaviours like eating crap food, scrolling your phone and ordering stuff on Amazon Prime.
  • Know exactly why you were behaving the way you do and knew how to change it.
  • Have the self-compassion with yourself so instead of saying ‘you should be…’, you feel OK with how things are.
  • Improve communication with your partner about the way things are and have calmer and more productive conversations.
  • Handle periods of intense stress without becoming panicky and anxious or wanting to crawl under the covers and never get up.
  • Make the time to go for a run, do yoga or do that hobby you love because you have more energy.
“I love this group. I have learned so much about the importance of self-care and being kind to ourselves. It’s good to find a community of supportive, like minded mums. Tricia is a wonderful facilitator, using her knowledge and skills to provide the tools to help navigate the sometimes overwhelming challenges of modern parenting.”
“I find Tricia so knowledgable and supportive. She is on a mission to helps us Mums feel less stress in our lives by giving us the tools to deal with whatever comes our way I find EFT so useful when used regularly.”

Hi, I’m Tricia

I’m a mum to 4 boys. I know how much pressure there is for mums to juggle and do it all. 

I started supporting mums after recovering from what I call a nervous breakdown in 2011 when my third son was around 11 months. I had no idea exactly what I was going to do but I just knew I wanted to help other mums.

When I came across EFT (also knowing as tapping) as part of my recovery from PND/postnatal (lifelong) anxiety I was so sceptical – how on earth does this weird (ie BONKERS) looking tapping thing work. But it did.  I couldn’t believe the results.  So much so that I trained to be a practitioner.  
 
It had such a profound change on anxiety/mental health, sleep, thoughts, relationship, behaviours, confidence and so much more.  No meditation, mindfulness, CBT or anything else that I had tried had such a huge impact.  
 
When I had my fourth son in 2018, I was struggling with all the usual new mum things with lack of sleep, catastrophising and obsessing with sleep, and one night I just started to tap with this phrase:

“Even though I’m so fed up with the lack of sleep, I accept myself and all my feelings, and this will end”
 
Within the 5 minutes I stopped crying, my catastrophising voice stopped and my rational head was engaged.  I realised this would end.  The constant night feeds would stop.  I’d be ok.
 
In that moment, though, it dawned on me… imagine if every mum I knew had access to EFT… imagine the lives it would change and improve if we weren’t always crying, shouting, panicking, catastrophising and trying to control everything. 
 
And that’s when Overcome the Overload was born.  

Welcome to overcome the overload, the membership designed to help you wake up feeling calmer, be able to handle life with ease and be much more connected to the people that matter.

Improve how you communicate with your partners, family and friends – working on how you approach these discussions and relationships mean that you’ll feel less angry and triggered.
 
Stop being hijacked by your emotions – what’s at the root of the emotional rollercoaster? What’s causing that internal conflict which creates that volcano eruption?

Increase your resilience, internal resources and inner strength.
 
Reframe the mum-guilt and everything else that’s holding you back.

When I went onto my first zoom session of tapping I didn’t know what to expect, and I thought about it a few times before I actually tried it. The first Monday I tried it I was so relieved at how calm and relaxed I felt after the tapping session. I used the tapping to get me through my week too. I was amazed at all the different sessions that are in Teachable and it’s absolutely amazing. I really feel thats it’s helped me in my daily life, I look forward to every week of tapping on zoom and meeting other people too on the platform, its life changing as I tap regularly during the week now.”
“Joining this group has been one of the best things I have done. EFT has changed my life. I love the fact it’s so quick and just 5 mins a day can make all the difference to how I mange my emotions and deal with all the various challenges us mums face. There is a real community feel and everyone is so supportive. Tricia is wonderful and is so passionate about EFT and has such a calming effect on people.”
“I had seen the group advertised and kept “meaning to join”, then I hit a breaking point, returned for some 1:1 with Tricia and joined the group. I have not looked back, It’s been a great follow on support network. the Monday night group and coaching, and monthly phone call with Tricia have all been great. The resources on teachable are always to hand, I now have no excuses! I have been able to take 5 minutes of me time regularly now to tap using the scrips, or do it myself on other issues that pop up for me.”

FAQs

  • EFT/Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping is a therapy where you tap on various parts of your head, face and body whilst saying specific phrases
  • It is growing in evidence base – there are now over a hundred research papers demonstrating the effectiveness of EFT 
  • There are fMRI scans which demonstrate using EFT can actually change the way your brain works
  • It works by stimulating a calm response state through tapping on various acupressure points across your head, face and body
  • The tapping process helps connects the thoughts to the body  
  • When we start to think about those issues, we start to link them with the calm response state rather than the stressed state we so often instinctively go to – i.e. you are changing how you are programmed to respond to that trigger/issue – this is called memory reconsolidating 
  • It can look a bit funny but don’t let that stop you trying something that could literally change your life by spending 5 minutes every day doing 
  • Studies have shown that EFT, particularly in a group session can reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) by 43%, increase antibodies by 113%, reduce anxiety by 40% and improve happiness by 31%
