You love your children and you love being a mum…….and……you feel tired, overwhelmed and taken for granted.
You try your best to live up to your vision of an ideal mum – to be patient and fun; to be organised and together; to cook healthy meals and keep the house tidy. In reality you have many moments of impatience, you feel disorganised and a mess, and no matter how hard you try you just cannot keep on top of the housework and there are days when mustering up enough energy to cook a healthy meal - let alone be a ‘fun mum’ - is beyond you.
On top of this you want your children to be happy, confident and well-behaved. You feel embarrassed when they are ‘naughty’ or ‘rude’ and feel overwhelmed when they have big emotions and are struggling with life.
And there is you – a woman who has her own problems, needs and desires outside of motherhood. You keep hearing about the importance of self-care – to make time to rest, refresh and pursue what lights you up. But self-care feels like an added pressure and yet another thing that you feel you are failing at.
You are looking for someone who understands and will hear your worries and struggles without judgement. Someone who will value you and believe in you. Someone who will think things through with you and help you find solutions. Someone who will support you to find your balance and feel more confident.
