Coach Yourself Better
Jessica has been coaching for more than five years and wanted to share how learning the skills of Mindfulness & Compassion has transformed the relationship with her children AND herself. "Motherhood can be very stressful - learning and adopting these skills doesn't make stress disappear - but I do have the tools to make me feel more in control. But a huge difference is being able to enjoy the quieter moments to resource myself for the crazy times."
You can read more about my experience on the Home Page.
Dr Sands McCutcheon -
Sands has been coaching for more than ten years. "I try to keep my life simple by not doing too much for me or over-scheduling my kids. I struggle to keep my house tidy (and I’m have learned to be OK with that). I notice I have high expectations of myself at times – so a real part of my life and practice is being truly content with being a ‘good enough’ mum."
Find our more about Sands on the Mindfulness Skills4Life website.
The Mindful Mums Project is developed by trained Mindfulness & Compassion teachers Jess & Sands who are both busy - and imperfect(!) - Mums, who have stopped giving themselves a hard time! And you can too...
Jessica & Sands have created this project for YOU because we know motherhood can be really tough. We are both Mindfulness teachers and Sands is actually a Dr with a background in neuroscience!
We’re not perfect, but feel the tools we use to get through the day help us with the tricky stuff, and maximise the joy. We love teaching about how our mind works. The Mindfulness is the awareness; the Compassion is the healing – giving ourselves a much needed metaphorical AND physical break.
We talk about expectations – of yourselves and others; we encourage you to be vulnerable. Our stoic culture of keep calm and carry on helps no-one!
And we want to provide real value from these sessions, so we will provide a workbook with really practical things to take away – we can guarantee it’s like nothing quite like you've learned before!
