Modern mothering is wild. Whether you’re just at the beginning, been at it a while or somewhere in between, the changes and challenges of mothering continue throughout our lives. You are not alone - I can help. I specialise in working with mothers who are figuring out how to find a sense of self and steadiness in this messy existence. You want to be the mother you imagined, to live your values and juggle it all. But sometimes, you fall short. We can work together towards your goals; to feel like yourself again, to be able to show up for yourself and your children, to understand, to heal and to grow.

Being listened to as you talk with someone you can trust helps you remember that you are not alone. It feels good to share, and talking about things can open up the door for healing. When we talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. When we try to keep things stored in our head, especially strong feelings, it gets overwhelming, which fuels our anxiety. Talking frees us from that. Together, our conversations will uncover the hidden meaning behind what's happening, and help you to find your way, as you make sense of the challenges you have found yourself facing.

We humans possess significant resilience, yet we are also quite vulnerable. There are numerous factors around us that can affect our wellbeing and can cause anxiety, sadness, hurt, guilt, anger, loneliness, sense of unfulfillment, etc. Sometimes painful memories from the past don’t allow us to create new memories. Our own thoughts and beliefs work against us at times. Behaviours that were once soothing and comfortable, over time, become destructive. Coping with loss can be extremely challenging. Argument and unresolved conflicts can damage our intimate relationships. Family members not getting along can result in lot of distress.
