Enjoy parenting

I help busy parents who want to find more balance to enjoy parenting, their work and their lives.

Parenting is hard

 

You do not choose parenting to make yourself miserable. But parenting can be hard for lots of different reasons.

Balancing everything can feel particularly challenging if you are working or running your own business. 

 

The pressures of work, having your own business and being a mum can leave you feeling stressed and overstretched. 

 

You can often feel like you are running yourself ragged.

You might not feel like you have enough support. You could be wondering where your "village" is...

It can feel hard to ask for help - especially if you worry about being judged. When you do reach out, you may get unhelpful advice or reminders of what you should be grateful for.

As a parent, you don't often have space to express your feelings so they can get bottled up inside.

As a result, you struggle to have patience at home. Sometimes you may end up shouting at your child or partner which makes you feel guilty and sad. 

You might often feel:  

  • on edge

  • filled with rage

  • tearful for no reason

  • or like you have no emotions

 

It is hard to move past these feelings

 

Your nervous system is overloaded. It is understandable that you might find it hard to see your way out of the cycle of stress, exhaustion and guilt.

You might feel that you need to put on a brave face for the rest of the world. You take on tasks even when you do not have time or you need rest. 

 

You might feel under pressure to do everything to a very high standard. 

You can feel stuck here - feeling tense, counting the minutes until bed time and freaking out about the never ending to do list. 

I can help you

I will support you to break this cycle in a way that works for you. I will help you to make lasting changes that feel manageable but make a big difference to your life.

Using the tools and holistic approach that helped me navigate these feelings as a mum and business owner, I can help you to: 

  • Get the support you need  

  • Feel calmer and more able to handle the challenges of parenting with a busy schedule

  • Feel like your to-do list is more manageable

  • Make parenting and life choices that feel right for you and your family

  • Be the connected, engaged parent that you want to be

  • Have more fun with your kids 

  • Make guilt-free space for rest

  • Feel confident as a parent

  • Improve your work-life balance

I would love to support you and your family to live the life you want.

Meet Amanda

You HAVE Got This is the phrase I say most frequently when working with people - especially parents. I believe that parents are capable. Even when parenting and having a busy life feels hard. 


I am also a mum who has been building a business while working part time. I understand how parenting and the pressures of the never ending to-do list can feel like it's all too much. 

 

I have supported myself using the skills and knowledge that I've gained while working with parents for over 15 years, as a mental practitioner, studying psychology and as a transformational coach. 

In my work, I share what I have learned and support you using an approach that is tailored to your unique situation.

 

I feel this work is important to help you and your family to enjoy life more which makes the world a better place.

You HAVE got this

Even when you feel

like you don’t

"Amanda is a knowledgeable & compassionate professional who genuinely cares about your wellbeing. She immediately put me at ease which was crucial in helping me open up about my struggles as a new parent."
"I am so grateful for the rewind sessions with Amanda. Amanda is incredibly supportive and her kindness and mindful presence made it easy for me to dive deep and find out what emotions and thoughts around the birth of my son I needed to release and how to re-write them."
"Working with Amanda gave me the encouragement and support I needed to come to terms with my birth experience. This eventually gave me the confidence to have a debrief meeting with a consultant & midwife, which, for me, provided a forum to be listened to and get my questions answered. Amanda’s continued support was invaluable in this process."
