What kind of support do you need
Motherhood is a challenge for many, many women. You are not alone in that! And you are not meant to be facing those challenges alone either.
Many mothers struggle when their babies are born, and these struggles may continue (and new ones may come!) for years. Post-partum depression and anxiety are at an all-time high. Many mothers feel pressure from friends, family and society to be a PERFECT mom--doing so much for their children, husband, and maintaining a perfect house, too. This often ends up resulting in guilt, shame, stress, overwhelm and exhaustion.
In the absence of a supportive community (the situation for most mothers in the Western world), many mothers find themselves spending most of their time at home with their baby or children. Are you feeling lonely, disconnected from the adult world, disconnected from your former job and purpose?
I know how hard it can be. I've experienced much of it myself.
AND I know it doesn't have to be that way.
I've learned and grown and I want that for you, too!
You don't have to be alone. There are tools and support out there to help you re-connect to yourself and others. To help you deal with the stress, overwhelm and frustration you're feeling.
I started my counselling practice specifically to support mothers like you to HAVE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE. A joyful experience. A connected experience. A peaceful, loving experience.
When you are at your best, you will find it easier to connect to your children. And that's what they need most from you: YOU at your best! A mother who is present, peaceful, and able to connect from a loving, centered place.
Are you interested in information and tools to help you have a better experience of your motherhood journey? Local and online workshops are an affordable and easy way to learn how to thrive and blossom!

Counselling and Coaching Services
Individual Counselling allows you to delve deep into your own struggles and look at how unhelpful beliefs about yourself and your life are holding you back. You will develop awareness and tools to shift and break free from patterns that may have started in your childhood or even were passed down to you from previous generations.
Couples Counselling allows you deal with issues between you and your partner that affect your relationship and your family. Are there areas of your relationship that feel stuck? Repeated arguments you keep having? Is dissatisfaction creeping in? Learn new communication skills, uncover hidden dynamics, and find the possibilities in a deeper experience of love and connection.
Mothers in Bloom Group Program (with Mom's Circle) is a 3 month program focusing on your healing and evolution so you can show up for your children and partner with more presence, patience, joy and ease. This is the path to becoming the AWESOME woman and CONFIDENT mother you're meant to be and being able to model to your children what thriving looks like!
This program includes transformative content (self-care, self-compassion, emotional wellness, relationships, conscious parenting, inviting authentic connections and creating community and support), a mom's circle every two weeks, a Facebook group, and add-on counselling sessions at a reduced rate.
Next program begins October, 2020. Contact me with questions or More Info and Registration Here.

Why Online Counselling and Programs?
More and more women are discovering that online counselling is just as effective as in-person counselling. I use free, secure and simple to use online video conferencing software (Zoom). Online counselling is especially convenient for new moms because you don't have to leave your house. It also allows you to participate from anywhere in the world!
Relax in the comfort of your own home... come to counselling in your pajamas with a cup of tea! Even if you don't have childcare during a session, some moms come while their baby naps or plays beside them.

Katherine has been a steady source of support for me for more than two years, through several major life transitions including a baby, an illness and a move across the country.
As a mom, I find the online format very convenient, and I love that I can still meet Katherine no matter where in the world I happen to be.
She has consistently provided a safe and nonjudgmental environment to explore all aspects of myself, and I always finish our sessions feeling truly heard and understood exactly where I am at.
She is a patient, open-minded, empathetic and a very skilled counsellor.
I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
