I recently went on a Taster Day to learn more about ‘Girls Journeying Together Groups’ which support mothers and their 10-12 year old girls. Kim McCabe created Rites for Girls and has been running these groups for years in response to having a daughter and realising how little there was [...]

Most of us can easily summon up the image of Harry Enfield's 'Kevin' when we think of teenagers.. but what does that mean for us as parents when we need to be able to communicate with them? Uncertainty around How to Parent As our eldest son approaches his teen years [...]

Stepmums on Mother’s Day

2017-07-10T09:06:20+00:00

Lisa Doodson, an expert on step families, has allowed me to share her thoughts as a guest blog. "So it's Mother's Day on Sunday ... Should stepmums expect a card, flowers perhaps from their stepchildren? Well as always, with anything related to stepfamilies, it depends!! There are no rules. Accept anything [...]

Embrace ‘Good Enough Mothering’

2017-06-27T17:12:40+00:00

I want to share a simple message this mother’s day: Let go of perfection, self-criticism and guilt - Instead embrace being a ‘good enough’ mother. As mother’s we typically have an ideal mother in our minds that we want to be. Yet this is an ideal we create through our [...]

15years old!

2017-06-27T17:13:34+00:00

My coaching practise has it's 15th birthday this month. I wanted my original company name to reflect my clients yearning for change and desire to be budding, blossoming and growing within their lives and with the parallels of being ‘in Spring’ the name was born: The reality for some was that they were ‘in [...]

#Connection

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

When I had my twins I finally gave in and joined Facebook as a way to connect with other multiple mums. It was ideal, as juggling two babies, and often older kids too, meant we never knew when we would have a moment to connect, let alone pick up the phone, [...]

Mother’s Day – for Mens eyes Only

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

What does 'right' look like? I imagine up there are many men trying to get it right for mother’s day, whether for their own mum or for their partner who's a mum, where the children are too young to do it all themselves. So what does ‘right’ look like? Of [...]

What’s YOUR Parenting Bueprint?

2016-11-21T17:15:57+00:00

"I sound just like my mum/dad" With the arrival of a baby comes the arrival of a 'mummy' and a 'daddy'. OK, pretty obvious! However perhaps not so obvious is that these new roles instantly bring new baggage with them. They bring the couples own experience of being parented, or [...]

Twins, Maternity Leave and all that…

2016-11-21T17:15:58+00:00

Newsletter, Issue 19 Well it's been a while and you'd be forgiven for replying "Hi, stranger" as I stopped e-zines rather abruptly almost 2 years ago. As some of you know, the reason was due to the wonderful news that I was pregnant with twins (though the twin bit was [...]

It’s All About Daddy

2016-11-21T17:15:58+00:00

Newsletter, Issue 18 This summer our 4 year old son wanted to spend time with daddy; in the mornings, evenings, at weekends, on holiday, just about any time he could! He acted up more when daddy wasn't back before bedtime or left early for work and regularly told me he [...]
