ABOUT THE FLOURISHING MOTHER
Do family and societal pressures constantly push your needs to the bottom of the pile? Are you frustrated by the lack of connection to who you are and what you want from life?
The Flourishing Mother exists to support mothers at all life stages to flourish in their personal lives and at work. We use evidence-based coaching psychology and positive psychology tools and techniques to get to the heart of the issues that our clients face, working with them to identify who they really are and what makes them tick.
Hi, I’m Belinda, a mother, positive psychology coach and Founder of The Flourishing Mother.
I am currently working towards my MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology (MAPPCP) at the University of East London (a course that is accredited by the European Coaching and Mentoring Council) and, after almost two decades in PR and Marketing, I am excited to have finally found my passion!
Becoming a mother in 2018 was instrumental in unlocking my career passion, and although motherhood is a role that I adore, I have also found it extremely difficult at times. As a result of the challenges I've faced since becoming a mother - both personally and professionally - and the evidence-based tools and techniques I have learned, I am on a mission to support other mothers in overcoming the challenges they face, restoring balance to their lives and transitioning into flourishing mothers.
I know that coaching and positive psychology can change lives because they have already changed my life and the lives of others I work with. I’ve fought through mountains of self-doubt, self-criticism and negative self-talk. And I’m proud to have reached a point in my life where I accept that I’m perfectly imperfect and can identify as a flourishing mother! My aim is to positively impact lives and support as many women as I can on their journey towards feeling the same way.
