Joyful Mums

The journey through the various stages of pregnancy, including conception, the nine months of growing your baby, labour, birth and postpartum, is often filled with unexpected emotions, physical changes and expectations. There is also evidence that a mother’s stress can have an impact on the baby in the womb and beyond, not to mention the toll that stress can take on mum herself.

Then, once the baby arrives, even though it is expected that your life will different, it can be a bit of a shock at how dramatically things can change, with new demands on you, both physically and mentally, arising. And as the child grows and develops, challenges continue to surface, seemingly different ones every week, which means that stress can build up and make it seem difficult to cope. No matter what age your child is, if those challenges and the emotions that accompany them aren’t addressed, it is all too easy to get stuck in the stress loop.

While there is a lot of practical advice out there, there are very few places where women can obtain sufficient mental and emotional support at such times in their lives. As a holistic therapist and a mother who has just recently welcomed a new life into the world, I understand the complexities between mind, body and baby and I am passionate about supporting women throughout their journey of becoming and being a mother.

Through the use of Mindfulness, Neuroscience, NLP, and Coaching, I have created a programme entitled Joyful Mums which includes a number of tools to help develop more positive emotional habits. Paired with optional individual support, the programme is designed to support and empower all women, regardless of the stage of motherhood they might be at.

The five week Joyful Mums course will cover how to manage and regulate emotions by rewiring the brain towards joy, greater personal connections (to the self and others), authenticity and deep peace.

This course isn’t just about managing stress when it arises but about rewiring your brain to reduce your overall stress levels and help you to move more easily through stress when you do encounter it.

How past participants have described the course:

  • A lesson in mindfulness and finding useful tools to help with day-to-day stresses.

  • A fantastic short course which teaches valuable techniques aimed at reducing stress and improving overall emotional wellbeing.

  • A short but thoroughly enjoyable and helpful workshop to learn 5 simple tools for a stress-free and joyful life.

  • Provided me with some really valuable tools for dealing with day to day stress. I really found the emphasis on observing how I felt rather than trying to push feelings or thoughts away/problem solve. It feels achievable to continue using the tools from the course and in the longer term shift my experiences/perspective towards the positive.

Reviews for the course:

This course gave me the opportunity to reconnect with myself, which is hard to do when you’re a full-time mummy. With this course, I had the opportunity to leave life at home and spend a couple of hours on me. The tools and meditations are something I will always have now, and I am able to incorporate these into my daily life. I think every mummy needs to have the time to reconnect and make sure that they spend some time thinking about themselves, so I will definitely be recommending Gianna and her Joyful Mums course to my local mummy friends. The tools will always be available to me, and my children, now, and the course has made me more aware of the importance of checking in with myself each day, which I didn’t ever do before

I would definitely recommend the Joyful Mums course to others. It includes a fascinating mix of science, mindfulness and NLP – to name just a few! Gianna is really warm and approachable and fosters a friendly and open atmosphere within the group. So much so, I was really sad when the course ended! I’ve come away with some really helpful techniques for handling stress and a better understanding about how and why stress can spiral. I’m feeling generally more positive and content as a result!
