And if you’ve taken the step of recognising that you may need a bit of support with your own mental wellbeing, then we’ve put together a list of amazing British mums who specialise in a range of different disciplines from life coaches to psychologists, who are all ready to help. Whatever your struggles, help is at hand, so please reach out!

Harriet Mandak, Holistic Life Coach

Harriet is a Holistic Life Coach & Mindset Mentor who specialises in working with mums to help them overcome some of the imbalance of life that comes with having children and rediscover their identity and purpose outside of motherhood. Her unique 4 month coaching programme, “Journey Back to You” is designed to help mothers reconnect with themselves (outside all the external roles and responsibilities placed upon them) and who they are at their core so that they can show up as the most, authentic, empowered and confident versions of themselves, whilst modelling the same to their children.

Harriet offers free discovery calls for anyone wishing to find out more about her coaching and how she can support you on your journey of empowerment and reconnecting to yourself.

Kate Littler, Psychotherapist & Coach

The Growth Pathway, founded by British mum Kate Littler who has over 17 years of experience as a psychotherapist, is about using the power of psychotherapy to help people reach a deeper understanding of themselves and move towards a more balanced way of being. Kate understands how hard it can be to ‘feel’. Often, we avoid the pain of unpacking difficult emotions, whether consciously or subconsciously.  But Kate believes that by working through pain, transformation can be achieved, and she is passionate about helping people on this journey.

Psychotherapy works in many areas, from anxiety and depression through to life’s challenges like divorce and bereavement. As a qualified coach, Kate also runs a ‘Parenting Teens in Dubai’ programme which is a fantastic course that gives insights and techniques into relating more effectively with our teenagers.

If you feel that Kate could help, please do contact her directly on 052 951 4559, or visit her website. Once the first step is taken, change can follow.

Jenny will help teach you proactive and reactive strategies for dealing with difficult emotions such as anxiety, anger, sadness, and self-criticism. As a mum herself, Jenny offers down-to-earth support, working with you in a friendly, homely, and confidential environment.
