Hi there!

I work with people who know there is much more to their life but feel overwhelmed and frustrated by how they can create it. When they work with me, they learn to create the life they really want by shedding light on what’s holding them back by building on the confidence that is within them so their life becomes 100% theirs.

To live their ONE life as they CHOOSE to live it, and not just reacting to what comes their way.

Being stuck in fear, doubt and a lack of self-belief is frustrating and exhausting. It takes courage to make a change, but even more to stay the course.

I am here to help you stay true to you and get you where you want to go.

Comparison is the thief of Motherhood

Comparison is the thief of Motherhood

I’m 6 months in and I have NEVER compared myself to others as much as I have done in the last 6 months.

This person is flying it…. That person’s baby sleeps like a dream…. That girl over there has this nailed…..

Why is that?

I’ve learnt about motherhood from a sociological perspective but now I’m living it and holy shit balls. Learning about something and living it – two very different things. I obviously know that. But now I knoooow that.

Half the time I feel like what I suspect Alice must have felt like when she fell down that rabbit hole. However, if you follow that story through, she had a pretty wild adventure. And I relate to that too.

But so where the does all this comparison come from?

Dr. Sophie Brock, a sociologist in Motherhood Studies says “We have been conditioned to internalise the patriarchal, social and cultural beliefs around what it means to be a good mother.” The Perfect Mother Myth.

These beliefs are deeply, deeply ingrained in our society and are basically unhelpful rules we as mothers must adhere to in order to be considered, and consider ourselves, to be good mothers. This is big stuff.

Further to that she states “comparison can be a way to berate ourselves into being a better mother.” Ah. Clever.

‘It’s not necessarily the comparing thought that’s the issue, but rather the feeling of guilt and shame that follows’. – right. And no better way to ensure compliance. Guilt and shame are long used forms of social control.

Motherhood – it’s an extremely loud arena. And as new mum, who like us all is learning daily on the bounce, it has been harder to drown out the noise than I ever expected.

Okay, so what can we do about this comparison then?

First, we must recognise that we cannot resist what we cannot see.

So, grab a pen and paper and write down:

1. What do you currently believe you should be doing in order to consider yourself a good enough mum.
2. Challenge any thoughts that are creating shame or any feelings of not good enoughness. Where do those thoughts or images come from?
3. Could you then create your own image of what a happy, content and good enough mother is?

My intention for 2022 is rebuild what my own beliefs are around all this.

I don’t think it’ll happen overnight but what I wish for me as a new mum, and all the mums out there, is to mother my little love like no-ones watching.

Let’s find out

What does ‘Getting In Your Own Way’ look like in your life? 

There’s nothing more painful than feeling stuck behind yourself, unable to get out of your own way and express who you truly are. On a good day feeling like ‘that life’ is a mere grasp away, and yet so far out of reach, afraid to put your heart and soul out there for fear of being seen entirely.

Any of that sound familiar?

Take my Quiz to see where and just how much you are getting in your own way.

Be seen as your true self

Does your life reflect the person you really are?

Before leaving my corporate job and building a six figure business, running business workshops and writing a book, things were different. 

Back then, living my life was like trying to drive the car with the brakes on. 

Full of fear and crippled with self-doubt.

Unable to speak up, afraid to be fully seen and overly concerned with what people thought of me.

Frustrated at being unable to unleash the version of myself I knew I was inside.

Knowing I was just reacting to life but had no idea how to be any other way in the world.

Then one day I realised, if I didn’t get a handle on what was happening I would forever live behind a mask and settle for a version of my life I didn’t actively choose. And so, I started making moves.

To be perfectly honest, it wasn’t easy……
