perfect mum - anxiety and depression support

AVAILABLE NOW

There are so many books, websites, guides, and advice out there for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and childbirth. What’s missing are books that not only address and provide solutions for the emotions, depression, and overwhelming stress that befall many new mums around the world every single day, but that also provide a voice for mothers who have experienced these issues first hand. Perfect Mum gives new mums the support they really need, exactly when they need it most.

Perfect Mum is officially endorsed by the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) and has been used as a support tool to help new mothers to feel in control, revitalized and happier in their busy roles as a mother and individual.

Perfect Mum provides a highly recommended support tool, which is filled with practical resources for raising energy levels, increasing your confidence, improving health and improving relationships in motherhood.

“Perfect Mum is the only ‘new mum’ book I actually read past 2-3 pages. I was really able to connect with and be inspired by the very relatable topics Lizzie discusses, almost as though every word was written just for me”. Carly May (Melbourne Mum)

 


How to Achieve Happiness in Motherhood

The Three Most Common Mistakes Made by Professional New Mums

1. Trying to be Supermum

2. Neglecting Yourself

3. Living disorganised

These three core mistakes have the potential to significantly impact a mothers life. For instance, trying to be Supermum often leads to failure, because these unrealistic standards are often unmet, or are achieved at the expense of your health and wellbeing. Neglecting your needs often leads to physical and mental health problems, such as anxiety or depression and has the potential to result in taking these negative moods out on those you love most. Living disorganised is the quickest road to daily stress, avoidance and procrastination. So, whilst these mistakes are common, they have the potential to impact your relationships, health, career and finances. Every mother wants the best for her child, but most mums feel pressure to try to be perfect and raise perfect children, which often results in feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, emotional, insecure and lonely. In order to support professional new mums returning to work, we developed the ‘Real Supermum’ program. You can read more about the The Real Supermum Program Brochure program here.

Personalised Support For New Mums When Your Need it Most

Therapy for Couples and New Mums

Life stress usually becomes a trigger for personal and relationship issues. For instance, having a baby places added pressures on couples due to tiredness, financial strain and societal pressure to raise perfect children. Marriages often break down as a result of life, parental, family or career stressors which often result in strained communication and a lack of intimacy.

When a couple introduces a baby into their lives they are often unprepared for this huge life change. Whilst having a baby is one of the most wonderful pleasures in life, exhaustion, a lack of freedom, financial strain and a loss of closeness can trigger maternal depression and further relationship problems.

When you are feeling like you can’t cope or you just can’t get past the strain in your personal relationship, it’s time to seek professional help. Working with a trained therapist who doesn’t just listen to your issues, but really works with you to derive practical solutions can make the world of difference.

Our Aim as professional therapists is to empower mothers to feel confident in themselves, as partners, friends and parents and to feel comfortable in their work-life balance choices. In doing so, our mums report feeling excited and relaxed about going to work, knowing they have scheduled quality family time. They also report better quality friendships and more intimacy in their relationships. Best of all, our clients report they have found themselves again and have learnt how to enjoy motherhood without the persistent guilt.
