Carers & Special Needs Mums Counselling

Feeling Isolated & Invisible

In your carer role you can feel a deep sense of isolation and invisibility. Your day to day life can feel like there is no space for your own needs.

Loss of identity

As a Carer and Special Needs Mum you can experience a loss of your identity. Not knowing who you are anymore and feel a deep sense of loss.

Feeling Exhausted

Being a Carer and Special Needs Mum is a big role, whilst important, it is a heavy load to carry and cause you such a deep level of exhaustion.

Do these describe your experience?

As a Carer and Special Needs Mum myself I have deep insight into the challenges that this role presents.

I know too well that feeling of isolation, where no one around you understands what it is like.

I get that feeling of being invisible because all the focus and attention is on your loved one.ย  Never been asked ‘how are you?”

I also deeply understand exhaustion that is like no other, an exhaustion that sleep can’t even cure.

If this all feels very real to you and aligns with your experience, the first thing I want you to know is:

The free online video consultation is an opportunity for us to meet each other and for you to share the challenges you have been experiencing.ย  It is also an opportunity for me to share with you how I can support you.

It Is Time For You!

How can working with you help me?

In working with many carers and/or special needs mums what I have noticed is the heaviness of the role reduces your capacity to cope with day-to-day life.ย  My intention for you is to feel supported, less alone, less isolated, reduce the feeling of been invisible and increase your capacity to cope with the ups and downs of your experience.

Your experience is unique and together we will find what it is you need, I provide a safe space for you to start to share your unique experience and challenges.

You may experience:

  • Increased capacity to cope with your day to day challenges
  • Feeling lighter and calmer
  • Learning new coping strategies
  • Building a deeper connection with yourself through mind and body work
  • Unlocking what happiness feels like and looks like for you
