Becoming a mum is an exciting but daunting time, and having a small baby at home is a time of emotional upheaval, even under the best circumstances.
This group (max. 5 mums) offers new mothers a chance to talk about their birth, changes in life and relationships after the birth, and the emotional challenges of having a baby when you are (possibly) far away from home. All facilitated and supported by a professional psychologist.
My passion is in supporting people to increase compassion for themselves when parenting. So there will be lots of opportunities to take a mindful look at what can cause stress and how we can increase self-compassion when the going gets tough.
Each week will be focused around a topic including:
~ What is compassion? How does this impact on ourselves as mums, and our parenting?
~ Stress and worry in early parenting. What brings you stress, and some techniques for managing it.
~ Am I my parent? Thinking together about our childhoods, and what of those we consciously (or unconsciously) bring into our own parenting journeys.
~ Values. What keeps you going, and in what direction?

Previous group members have spoken of really valuing the chance to learn from and connect to other mums in this way. I hope that these groups can give voice to some of the more unspoken, difficult parts of parenting, and see that we really are all in it together!
