time to kick the mum guilt
To the Curb
Ok so you have got to the point where you recognise that mum guilt is not a good thing and you may be kinda ready to peel back some of those layers. I am here to tell you that underneath the layers . . . is the deeper aspect of you (your essence) and it is all you need to be an awesome parent.
There are always a new recommendations for parents, new ideas or suggestions, parental guidance, positive parenting tips, gentle parenting . . . the list goes on. However, the best parenting ideas actually come from within and although that may sound airy fairy, it is just common sense that relationships are much more about being authentic, loving and open then they are about "doing" anything in particular.
How can a parenting consult
Reading your kids
Learning how to read your kids is an absolute game-changer in the world of parenting. It can be so easy to get caught up in the tangible, one dimensional world that we live in... but learning how to energetically read whats happening with your kids, what their next step is, what their being offered ... offeres them so much opportunity for growth and supports you with your reactions.
Maximising their strengths
Every person on the planet possessesincredible strengths that can often get overlooked or even more devestatingly... unappreciated. The beauty of knowing your stengths is the confidence that naturally comes from them being celebrated. Rebecca loves supporting people (parent's & children alike) in uncovering their true strengths and qualities and sees things that are often overlooked.
Supporting Their Areas of Weakness
Just as important as knowing your children's strengths is understanding their weaknesses... With understanding comes the ability to compassionately support them through whatever may come up. This gives them the room to grow, learn and problem solve whilst keeping their steadiness and confidence.
dealing with your own issues & reactions
Our children can be the ultimate button-pushers for us parents. But, like reading our children, we can also use those reactions to read ourselves and feel whats being offered for us to grow, evolve and heal.
Many people suffer from parental guilt and even parental anxiety. Do you have thoughts like, "I am a bad mother or I am failing as a parent." It really doesn't have to be this way. When we value ourselves, we see the role we play in our children's lives more clearly and we start trusting ourselves as parents . . . without the guilt.
Empowering Kids, Empowering Parents
I have no idea what to write here 😊
Supporting kids with work, school, friendships and relationships
Sometimes we forget that our kids have real problems too, they have dynamics playing out in friendships, there's bullying at school, they don't get along with certain teachers, etc. We are so much better equipped to support them with these situations when we come at them from the energetic aspect first, which is where these sessions deeply support.
kids & body image
In an age where filters, Instagram and Ticktok are prevalent, it is more important than ever for kids to have true confidence in their body and appreciate their beauty. We've all seen toddlers catch their reflection in a mirror and love on themselves... where does that go and more importantly, why does it go? There is so much to uncover on this topic for both your kids and yourself.
kids & drugs
No parent wants to see their child go down this path, but as is with everything in life, energy is always at play. Breaking down the energetic aspects of drugs and pinpointing the driving reason behind your child taking them is a game changer.
for new parents
If I could give one piece of advice to new parents, I would say don't try to "do it right" just be yourself. We tend to go slightly crazy when we live our life trying to relate to people from a check-list of right and wrong rather than a freedom to be ourselves. Raising children is not easy, it is challenging and the more we can support ourselves in this the better for everyone.
"Raising children can in a lot of ways be scary and in my experience most parents are wanting to do their best but end up just trying not to stuff it up because they are lacking the required depth of self-worth to know without a doubt that who they are offers everything a child could ever need. I meet amazing people every day who don't realise how amazing they are and instead plague themselves with questions like "I am a bad mother or I am failing as a parent." It really doesn't have to be this way."
A word on "mothers Guilt"
"Mother's guilt" is a commonly experienced tension that can follow us mums everywhere, affecting our confidence, self worth & well-being. It's certainly not exclusive to Mothers - as Dads have their fair share too, especially dads who live away from their kids, either because of work, divorce or some other reason.
It can literally feel like a monkey on our back, weighing us down and dampening our pizzazz. Did you know you have pizzazz? It can be easy to forget sometimes. Many people suffer from parental guilt and even parental anxiety. Do you have thoughts like, "I am a bad mother or I am failing as a parent." It really doesn't have to be this way. When we value ourselves and what we bring, we see the role we play in our children's lives more clearly and we start trusting ourselves as parents . . . without the guilt. Some of the more tricky cases of parent guilt come from regret and looking back at times when as a parent you weren't in a very good space. Even in these situations, there is a lot to unpack and eventually resolve within yourself.
