Someone Who Understands

Wouldn’t it be great to get help from someone who understands?  Someone who understands how hard it is to be a new mum, someone who understands about having postnatal depression and understand how challenging it is to have children with special needs.

If you said a resounding YES to this answer well your in luck here.  I know how hard it is in these three areas as because these are my areas that I have personally live through on a daily basis.  My girls definitely did not give us an easy time as babies, I have lived through postnatal depression and depression and am now enjoying life and I have two children with autism and severe sensory processing disorder.

It can be extremely frustrating to seek help by someone who truly does not understand what you are going through.  But I do and I want to help you.  My family have definitely gone through to the depths of “crap” but we have managed to get through it all.  We are not perfect but we can get through anything as a family.

I am here to help you and your family start a new family beginning and start thriving as a family.  There is nothing you could say to me that would shock me and I just want to help you.

Why Are We So Scared To Ask For Help?

A new mum asks “I need help”

Typical responses “Welcome to parenthood”

“Suck it up”

“We never asked for help”

“Asking for help is a sign of weakness”

“Just get on with it”

When you read the above responses, it is no wonder why parents struggle through and not ask for help.  If a parent does get some help, they in turn feel guilty and feel that they are not good enough as a parent.

But is asking for help that bad?  No!

If I did not seek help, I would be 6 foot under by now. I was diagnosed with severe depression after my first child was born and with severe PND with my second child.  If I didn’t ask for help I would not be here today and that is a reality.  If I did not ask for help, I would not be the person I am today from all the wonderful help that I received.  I have had a long road through recovery but this week I said good bye to my psychologist after 5 years.

This is one of the reasons why I have set up Coaching for Lifetime Change.  I want to give back to the community for all the wonderful help I received and that I am still receiving.  I am extremely proud that I sought help because my life is so much richer and fulfilling than I could ever imagine.  I have so much to give and I can give each family fantastic results and an everlasting bond.  I am not judgemental at all and believe me nothing you could ever say to me would shock me.

Being a parent is extremely rewarding and truly amazing with the right help.  I promise you, that you will not regret it.
