trauma informed support
My healing methods
My motherhood support system uses healing methods that are trauma informed.This means that I understand the toll that high levels of stress and trauma can place on the body and nervous system. It means that I am able to identify the signs and symptoms of high level stress and trauma. I understand the impact that your experiences have had on you. I understand how and why the way you think, act and feel has been impacted by your trauma. And, more importantly, I can listen, I can make you feel safe and understood and I can guide you through your healing journey.
Trauma Informed Yoga
Trauma informed yoga is less about the way we perform the poses and more about helping you connect to your mind and body in a way that feels safe and allows you to feel grounded. I have specialist qualifications in trauma informed yoga and will guide through a supportive, grounding experience; we will always take things at your pace, both emotionally and physically.
Trauma Informed Breathwork
Breathwork and trauma release are deeply connected. Trauma breathwork helps us to deactivate the fight-or-flight response we find ourselves in when we are stressed; it counters both the physical and emotional effects of trauma. Under my guidance, we will begin slowly, building up to a breathwork practice which enables stored stress to be lifted and processed safely.
Nervous System Regulation
When your nervous system is dysregulated, the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) system dominates. This puts the body on high alert, in a state of “managing emergencies.” The parasympathetic “rest and restore” system can’t do its job. I help you to identify the stress factors that dysregulate your nervous system in this way and give you techniques to manage and reduce them.
We are split in two when we become a mama: the woman we were and the mother we are. This new identity and split can sometimes leave us feeling lost. Matrescence coaching with me helps you to navigate, connect with and value this inner split and brings you back to feeling whole. During this 6 week program we share, explore and unpack your experience of motherhood.
I offer both one-to-one motherhood support (online or in person at my studio in Holmfirth) and group work (on my online membership platform.)
I cant wait to meet you: sending lots of love and support in the meantime.

Please get in touch if there is anything at all that you would like to ask.
i can support you with..
….amongst other things:
Trauma is a powerful word. In the context of my work it could stem from difficult birth, from pregnancy or babyloss, from fertility struggles and from the realities of motherhood.
Emotional manifestations of these traumas could, for example, include post-natal depression, heightened anxiety during pregnancy, heightened anxiety around subsequent births and maternal overwhelm.
Physical manifestations could include adrenal fatigue , digestive disorders and headaches.
I would be privileged to help you to heal.
I’m a Yorkshire lass, married with a beautiful daughter Lily-May, 3 years old and another on the way.
Since becoming a Mother myself I have experienced birth trauma first hand and felt the effects physically, emotionally and mentally.
I was never officially diagnosed with anxiety, post natal depression and post traumatic stress but did experience them. For me, my healing began when my little girl started nursery and I had the regular time, rest and space to identify just how much I had struggled.
I have also experienced a missed miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy and felt the devastating sadness and grief following our loss.
All of the techniques that I use support Women have helped me navigate my own traumatic experiences and I love to share them.
a whole identity shift
Until I heard this word, I had no way to describe the radical changes that occurred alongside motherhood
