Reignite Your Fire
Being a Mother doesn’t mean we have to relinquish what brings us joy, what keeps our inner pilot light burning, what inspires us. Motherhood is far from being an all or nothing gig. Learning to surrender to it’s messy mishmash of interwoven creativity with structure, fun with discipline, fantasy with focus, messiness with tidiness and everything else in between, means we embrace our ability to be flexible.
Our ability to be flexible and curious to new ways of being and doing life, opens us up to possibilities. Possibilities mean options. When we know we have options, we feel expanded and inspired. Inspired to nourish and explore the parts of us that make us whole. To make things better for ourselves and our family. To look beyond the daily grind.
Yes, we are Mothers but we are also Women, Sisters, Friends, lovers, wives, writers, bookworms, dancers, entrepreneur, humanitarians, fitness freaks, photographers, cooks, teachers and students who sometimes lose our way. One thing is for sure, we are never alone on the journey.
Yes to myself, yes to support and yes to transformation
Reclaim Your Voice
Honour Who You Are
Truly honour and respect your empathic, sensitive nature. Having this beautiful nature is such a gift to those around you and the world at large however also being such a strong capable woman can often mean these softer, more feminine elements become rejected and buried within you.

Being a Mother doesn’t mean we have to relinquish what brings us joy, what keeps our inner pilot light burning, what inspires us. Motherhood is far from being an all or nothing gig.

For many Mother’s in our modern society, managing daily anxiety is always on the to do list. Some manage to keep the lid on the what seems like a pressure cooker ready to explode and for others it consumes their life.
Over the years I’ve noticed that unless women learn to gracefully say “No” and effectively delegate, prioritise or ask for help the number and weight of the demands from others can become excessive and overwhelming. Under this intense load, our ability to respond to the circumstances in our daily lives becomes compromised and strained and anxiety becomes our constant companion.
Most of us know what it feels like to be lost but many choose to ignore the gifts being lost brings with it. We tend to sweep the uncertainty under the carpet until it can’t be ignored any more.
As human beings we have a deep need and strong desire for certainty. It makes us feel safe when we know what’s happening tomorrow next week, next month. Having certainty in our lives allows us to plan and most of the time have a good idea of the direction we’re headed.
Feeling uncertain of our direction or purpose in life can be frightening, isolating and lonely or can be viewed as an opportunity to explore what got you here and how you want to do things differently from here on in.
To belong, to feel like we’re part of the greater whole and feel accepted unconditionally is a desire felt very deeply by all of us human beings.
Universally we all have a fear of being disconnected from others and unfortunately this fear can lead to fulfilling this deep need within us in ways that don’t serve us.
At certain times in our lives it can feel like every road we turn down for answers leads to no where.
For many Mothers who enter The Nest, life is barely worth getting out of bed for in the morning. They are desperetly wanting to create something different for themselves but have no idea how to begin. Often they don’t even know what they want, they simply know they can’t go on like this anymore.
With the absence of traditional tribes and extended families living with more and more distance between them, the support we feel we need as parents is often difficult to find.
In saying that though the very capable, no fuss Mummas I work along side, tend to struggle when it comes to reaching out for help when they need it. Whether it’s from their husbands, children or friends, they often push through to the point of burnout, filled to the brim with anger and resentment with ‘having to do it all.’
