Baby-proof the house; panic-proof the mum.
Do you overthink what you said to the mum in the supermarket queue? Is your internal dialogue more critical than kind? Perhaps you wake to check your baby is breathing, or the sight of a rash sends you down an internet search rabbit hole. Whatever your level of anxiety, however much it impacts your life, this audiobook is for you.
Mind Over Mother is full of light bulb moments of realisation. It will have you learning, laughing and loving yourself through the journey of motherhood. You will learn to address the most important conversation you’ll ever have – the one inside your head, because investing in your mental health is the best gift you can offer yourself and your baby.
A strong understanding of self-worth is crucial to living an authentic and fulfilling life, yet so many of us have lost that sense of who we truly are and what we are worthy of. On the surface, this may look like low confidence, imposter syndrome, chronic busy-ness, exhaustion, overwhelming emotions, fear or anxiety, but at the core, it’s low self-worth.
Using Anna’s own experience of embarking on this journey herself, and spending 10 years facilitating her therapy clients to do the same, Know Your Worth will help you to understand why you feel the way you do, what perpetuates it and what the cost of low self-esteem has been for you. It provides the coping mechanisms, habits and tips that will redirect your self-esteem on a healthy and fulfilling upward spiral and help you to escape the relentless desire to ‘be better’ and ‘do more’ with the realisation that perhaps you were actually far more acceptable than you first thought.
Grounding Words for the Highs, the Lows and the Moments in Between
Anna supports listeners through the roller coaster of feelings that come with being a new and/or experienced mum and provides expert advice based on her own professional and personal experiences. Whether you need some quick grounding, a note of compassion or you want to untangle a feeling, turn to this book for a quick uplifting moment of much-needed support.
There are quick takeaway mantras and action tips for those tight on time, and further resources should you want to explore topics more deeply. This comprehensive A-Z covers everything from baby blues and anxiety to guilt, insomnia, stress, your inner critic and maintaining friendships.
How to Find Balance, Feel Good and See Your Children Flourish as a Result
We can only anchor, nurture, nourish and instill confidence in our children when we extend the same support to ourselves. After all, how can we effectively tend to our children’s needs when our energy reserves are depleted? How can we lead by example and teach our children the importance of healthy self-esteem if we are struggling with these things ourselves? There are a thousand and one ways to parent, and only one way that’s authentic for you.
Drawing on her work as a psychotherapist, alongside her own experiences as a mother, Anna shows that caring with our children begins with caring for ourselves, and it’s time to replace exhaustion with empowerment. Far from being selfish, self-care is an essential quality of a happier mother good parent. The greatest gift you can give to to yourself and your children, is to give yourself permission to thrive.
