“We see you. We see you Mama, Mummy, Mum. We’ve questioned ourselves too. Felt lost in countless hours. The power of having pieces of our heart walking the earth, and the fear that something could break them. The polar pulls to both run away and stay. The pulse and power of motherhood. A singular journey to be made without a map (or a nap!). We see you Mummy, we hear you mummy, and this space is for you.“
What is HypnoMothering?
Hypnomothering is a small, one off group class which is run on a Saturday morning from 11am-3pm. It is for Mums of 0-5 year olds and it runs every 2-3 months. Please contact Nicola if you are interested and you will be added to the waiting list.
HypnoMothering is for every Mum of a little one. We all face struggles and overwhelming emotions. You are incredible and you are not alone. This class has been developed to provide you with strategies, to immediately reduce any negative emotions or overwhelm. And it will help you with tiredness and sleep deprivation too.
Why Hypnosis works…
Self hypnosis is such a wonderful tool that has immediate and long term benefits. It is about using positive thoughts and suggestions to make us feel better day to day. All hypnosis is self hypnosis and is a wonderful, naturally occurring state that improves our well being. As a therapy hypnosis has an immediate positive effect on the mind.
Preparing yourself with HypnoMothering…
When we are pregnant, we rightly focus on the birth and not necessarily on our emotions following our baby’s arrival. It is absolutely recommended to prepare ourselves, mind and body, for our baby’s birth. We can increase our chances of having a positive experience and limit childbirth trauma. But it is also helpful to prepare yourself for the transition to Motherhood. It is a huge life changing event.
The common feelings of Motherhood…
New Mums are especially vulnerable to feeling self critical and sometimes overwhelmed. It can look to us, on the surface, like everyone is coping amazingly well, and we wonder why we are not. What we sometimes don’t realise that all Mums go through very similar thoughts and feelings.
We are often figuring things out on our own, googling everything from why ‘won’t my baby sleep’ to ‘how to be a good parent’. Postnatal depression affects 3 in 10 women in the UK, and many cases go undiagnosed. (Mental Health and Wellbeing www.gov.uk).
As our children grow in independence and personality, we find ourselves dealing with new challenges all the time. The pre-school years are one of my favourite phases, however it can be physically and emotionally demanding, especially if you have another baby by now. We have a lot to juggle and we need to find ways to go the distance in the healthiest way possible. When we are at our best, our children will reap the benefits.
This is a hugely needed course, created in response to the needs of women.
What some Mums have said…
“I was struggling to admit how hard I was finding things and this has given me the tools to cope with the stressful times and fully enjoy the good times.”
“What a weight has been lifted to know that I’m not alone. EVERY Mum should do this class!”
Perfect for anxious thoughts…
Have you ever been spending time with your baby and some unwanted thought creeps into your head and sabotages your good days? If so you may have a tendency towards what we call runaway or anxious thoughts. They rob us of the precious time where we should be happy with our family. I’ve heard this often and have experienced it.
There are strategies in this class that will start to help immediately. Your baby is little for such a short time. We need to look back with happiness not sorrow that we didn’t enjoy it. What we need to do is stop negative thoughts in their tracks. Hypnosis techniques are perfect for this.
