Work through things at your own pace with weekly sessions and support from Clare. The first session you’ll set goals together about what you want to achieve and each week you’ll agree things to test out in your life, to really help things move along and create new patterns and habits that work better for you.

CBT is a collaborative way of working. You’ll become your own expert in managing the challenges that come with life and especially with life once you become a parent. Through weekly sessions you’ll learn how to understand the links between your thoughts, emotions and behaviours. And how to approach them differently so that you can think, feel and do differently and get your life to where you want it to be.

Sessions are online via a video call, with some limited availability for in person appointments in North London

“There are only a few people in my life who I trust to turn to for support in parenting, and Clare is most definitely one of those people. I had a very hard time when I first had my daughter, with post-natal anxiety so severe I required re-admission to hospital. The strategies that Clare has taught me have really helped me to manage my anxiety when it feels like it might overwhelm me. I always feel like I can ask her anything; she doesn't just hand me the answers, but helps me to work things out for myself. It's great that she is a mum herself, as she really understands what I mean, but also is great at seeing that there is no one-thing-fits-all when it comes to parenting. I would recommend Resilient Mums to all mums- not just those who have a diagnosed mental health issue, but for everyone, as the constant changes that we are expected to deal with as mums is enough to make even the calmest person want to chuck everything and everyone in the bin!! ;)”
