About the Event
Weekly ongoing therapy group for new mothers designed for 8 weeks. The group is small – up to 10 people and is open to new participants at the end of every cycle.
This group is a place for mums to talk about the journey to motherhood as well as the isolation and disconnection from one's prior self that many mums experience. It is a safe place to connect to other new mothers while learning to reconnect to aspects of one’s identity that feel lost, as well as to build and grow. It is a place to be comfortable with the reality of motherhood.
The focus of our support group is encouraging real and sustainable self-care practices to support the complexity of women’s life.
We offer a warm and inviting space to share stories and the group moderator provides immediate emotional support to navigate real motherhood experiences.
The support group is semi-structured, meaning we present weekly topics that address motherhood experiences while also holding space for the personal needs of individuals and group members.
Our program is based on the Maori well-being model The Whare Tapa Whā focused on four dimensions of human life. The topics we discuss are - motherhood identity; motherhood emotions like shame, anger, loneliness, anxiety; well-being; self-care system; mindfulness; narrative practices, etc.
During our sessions, you’ll have the chance to talk, listen, discover coping techniques, and develop a mindfulness practice – all with the support of other moms just like you. It’s free to join – just click to register.
