Mother's Mentor

Do you need to talk?  I’m ready to listen. 

Becoming a mother is probably the biggest transition most of us will make in our lifetimes.  Everything in our lives can be completed turned upside down.  That can take some getting used to. 

It’s ok to feel the need to talk to someone, someone who will listen without judging you, trying to fix you or passing comment.  As mothers we have an overwhelming amount on our daily plate, juggling those plates gets tricky sometimes and can really knock our confidence if we feel we aren’t coping with everything in our lives. 

We need to normalise this feeling by talking about it more. 

Who is a Mother’s Mentor session for? 

A lot of mothers want to have a general chat about the challenges of motherhood, some will come with a specific issue they want to work through.  Others don’t really know what they need but know they could benefit from talking to someone.  Often clients are brand new mums but others have one, two or more children.  All mums can benefit, there is no child’s age limit.

What can I expect from a Mother’s Mentor session.

The sessions are scheduled for 1 hour.  Your appointment we will generally be at Emma’s home office, although newborn mothers often want a home visit, that is fine too.  We spend a short time at the beginning of the session going through expectations, limitations and what my remit is.

 

I will then listen to you whilst you talk about whatever is on your mind. Together we can work it through, so you will come away feeling lighter and if you need them, some tangible strategies for your next steps in moving forward.
