Enhacing your confidence, teamwork  and skills as a parent

Parenting life brings a lot of change: new identity, new lifestyle, more responsibiltiy, more work, less sleep, relationship dynamics change, new cultural expectations and there is most importantly a new family member to get to know.  There are plenty of rewards and plenty of challenges along the way.

As your coach, educator and support person, we problem solve what’s not working so well and celebrate what is! We define what you want and explore how to make postive choices moving forward. 

Its a big time of change and support helps give you the confidence and skills you need to trust your instincts to care for your baby, yourself and your intimate relationships.

Here are some ways we can shape our time together:  

Life coaching and counselling: Explore how you want your feelings, thoughts, behaviours and beliefs to serve you. Process your challenges and boost your emotional intelligence. Set goals alongside nurturing acceptance and curiosity about what is present in the moment. Be more confident and able to navigate the challenges, changes and choices you may be facing.

Post natal doula care: Receive nurture, care and practical help at post natal visits in your home during the crucial first 3 months with your baby.

Strengthening relationships: Deepening your connection, communication, team work and intimacy with your partners or support people.

Returning to work: Plan your return to work process and explore how to keep a happy and healthy work/life balance, for both parents.

I have found the journey into parenthood to be challenging. Becoming a Mum has forced me to evaluate my priorities, commitments and my goals for the future. I have been receiving life coaching from Erika for the past 18 months, who has helped me to clarify, my goals, direction, priorities and values. It’s been a time of enormous change. When I first started with Erika I felt overwhelmed and directionless. With her assistance I have clarified what I want for the future and worked out ways to make it happen. One of my goals is to establish a successful online business. I really valued having somebody by my side to help, encourage, motivate and occasionally advise me. It has been a wonderful journey and one that I would highly recommend to anyone struggling with their transition into parenthood.

When we look specifically at the issues of parenthood it helps to acknowledge that great self-sacrifice is involved. Our ego goes through a massive adjustment. Our lifestyles need to accommodate the changes. Our consciousness asks us to be responsible role models and consider those in our care. We are faced with the choices of how to help shape a new family and be healthy, happy, functioning human beings.

Our capacity to expand our hearts to love, nurture and take responsibility for another human being is enormous. It’s important to realize that we have the right to self-determination, alongside the responsibility to not only sustain life, but to make it a life worth living.
