What is it?
Maternal Coaching is an approach dedicated to mothers. Mothers to be, new Mothers, Mothers in crisis, Mothers soon to have an ’empty nest’, Mother devoted to their careers, stay at home Mothers, etc. For some women motherhood is an intuitive role where they are fulfilled; others they don’t experience it that way. What they have in common, is that both at some point would struggle. Nobody prepares you mentally for what it means becoming a Mother. How different would have been having the support you needed?
A report produced by healthwatch UK talks about the need for a better support system for parents and their mental health (more info and report); and this report is only about new parents; however, we know that it is needed for not only new parents.
According to Healthwatch, the leading cause of direct deaths within a year after the end of pregnancy is maternal suicide in the UK.
Maternal Coaching is about getting you and your mental estate where you want to be, using a mixed of coaching techniques; Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Hypnotherapy. The support goes beyond to the sessions, in between sessions we can communicate over e-mail and sometimes over the phone. You will have me by your side helping you to work to achieve your dreams and work on your problems. You can read more about Cognitive Hypnotherapy here.
“The most common mental health problems during pregnancy and after birth are anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorder”
