I never know which part to start with….the personal or professional. But I guess when I think about what is most important to me….. above all else….it’s being a mother. I have 4 children between the ages of 8 and 15 years. I call them “the loves of my life” because truly that is how it is. But just as much as they can fill me with so much joy that I burst, they can also bring me to my knees. There is heaps I love about motherhood, some parts I’m indifferent to and a few bits that I don’t like. I wouldn’t trade it for the world and I wouldn’t be the woman I am today, without the experiences that motherhood has brought me. On top of all that I’m a Clinical (and Forensic) Psychologist. I’ll save the conversation about “what is a forensic psychologist” for another time. What I really want you to know is that one of the areas that I love love love working in the most, is with mums and their bubs, toddlers, pre-schoolers, primary and high school aged kids. The lot! There are so many reasons why I love working with mum. Probably the biggest reasons are because motherhood creates an openness within women that fosters enormous growth…and I find that both a privilege and exciting, to be a part of. Mums are raising the next generation of adults and deserve a lot more support than they get…even if they have a wonderful support network and certainly if they don’t! PS. Please be clear that everything I have said about mums applies to most Dad’s too. I know this. It’s just another conversation that’s all…..
