Not A Perfect Parent
...Me too. Support for parents and caregivers
Not A Perfect Parent
Something For You
NAPP isn't about how to take care of anyone else, you're already doing that. It's about how to take care of you.
There are so many ways to be a parent or a caregiver. Whatever your story is you are very welcome here exactly as you are, no perfection required!
Have a little listen to our podcast below, take a peek at our blog, download our EFT package for adoptive parents or book a free chat to see how 1:1 support can help.
There is no map and we all get lost sometimes.
You matter too,
I am an adoptive mum and an advanced EFT Practitioner specialising in working with parents. There is no such thing as a perfect parent and I know how overwhelming it can be when things get too much.
Our flexible online and in person sessions support you with challenges including overwhelm, feeling disconnected from your children and yourself, and feeling not good enough.
During sessions you will also learn tapping as an amazing self help tool, proven to reduce stress and anxiety in the moment on those more difficult days.
When I became a mum I felt lucky, joyful and completely in love with my two beautiful babies. Some days.
I was also exhausted a lot of the time, I worried about getting it 'right', I found it hard to keep on top of things and I lost my patience. Nobody seemed to talk about those things and it left me wondering if I was the only one.
That's when I started to understand that motherhood came with a lot of pressure - from friends, family, the media, myself...
Pressure makes it hard for us to share and ask for help, it makes us forget that we all have our own story and it's okay not to be perfect.
I found myself with a new window on my own Mum's struggle as someone who suffered with complex post partum issues and who felt those pressures a thousand fold for the rest of her life.
Not one of us is a perfect parent and we will all make mistakes. We don't need to make the hard days harder by holding ourselves or each other up to an impossible ideal.
NAPP is here because even though we are all walking different roads, we don't have to feel alone.
You are doing an amazing job.
