If you are a Mum, individual Counselling can be a real revelation. A whole hour a week to focus on yourself. Even saying that out loud can seem like a luxury. But I would suggest that finding time for yourself is essential to your own refuelling. Indeed, finding yourself in the mix of parenthood might be the best thing you ever do.
Everyone’s family has a different setup, feel and flavour. It might be that you are a single parent or be living in a multi-generational household, be in an LGBTQ+ relationship, or you could have exactly 2.4 children!
Our backgrounds as Mothers are all so different, but there are shared challenges that are common to us all. Such as, being on duty 24/7, and the pressures of juggling home and work life. Also, adjusting to the reality of accepting the children that we have rather than the children we might have imagined, is a common theme. You might feel a mixture of love and frustration, a sense that it is all too much, or that you have somehow lost yourself. These are all things that you might like to bring to Counselling.
