Testimonials

"Clare helped me to find the tools to understand what was holding me back from pursuing the things I really wanted to after becoming a Mom of two boys.  She helped me to realise that what was stopping me weren’t failures and that I just needed to change tack on the way I was thinking about things both in my personal and professional life to move forward. She is an amazingly insightful, kind and patient person with an ear and an eye to spot these details, helping to turn them into positive changes ❤️"

Emma Walker, mum of two, SE London

“Since becoming a part of Clare Flaxen’s Resilient Mum group I have had the confidence to speak out more about the realities of my tough mum moments, getting genuine love and support from a lovely group of women. I have taken part in several of Clare’s services - her calm mum workshop, a couple of group video call sessions and most valuably to me - several private sessions. She has an incredible way of reading through all the chaos of my feelings and figuring out the root, giving me sensible goals and has taught me the power of accepting any and all emotions as normal. That it is ok to be fed up or angry or sad but that there is something that can make you feel better when you need it - your own mind!

Working with Clare has given me tricks that have stopped me shouting so much and feeling so out of control with my family, given me direction in my career and truthfully - hope that my mind won’t always be quite so noisy!”

Kelly Rigg, mum of one (soon to be two!), Hampshire

"Clare has lifted a weight from my shoulders. She was totally calm and methodical about approaching my problems. Clare is so good at recognising what is important to you. I really felt that I was in safe hands. She helps me stay grounded and calm"

Georgia Black, mum of two, London

"Thank you Clare, you really have been such a big help to me. I feel like a normal mum/wife/me/human again!"

Natalie, mum of two, essex

"Clare is a very experienced, skilled and compassionate therapist. I was suffering from post natal depression after giving birth to my baby girl. Clare created a safe space for me to open up and talk about my challenges and fears as a new mum. She connected with me as a mum. She helped me re-frame the negative thoughts I was having to create more realistic expectations of myself as a mother"

sylvia, mum of two, london

"There are only a few people who I trust 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. The strategies 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"

alexandra clinton, mum of one, cheshire

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the support you’ve given me in our CBT sessions over the past few months. Your advice has been invaluable and I’ve learnt some amazing tricks that I will use in all areas of my life-from dealing with challenging children to stepping out of my comfort zone at work.  I feel like I’ve shifted how I approach situations/respond to things and that is down to your wise words and reflection. THANK YOU and wishing you all the best with resilient mums! "

katriina, mum of two, surrey

"Today I was on the train late with quite overtired, whingy/crying kids and I just felt really calm! As I got off a guy said "you were brilliantly calm throughout that whole journey". I felt like I'd just won the Oscars. So I think your advice is getting through!"

georgia black, mum of two, london

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the workshop to other parents. It was so refreshing and useful to talk openly about the challenges of parenting in a supportive and positive environment. The content covered was fantastically helpful. Thank you so much for a brilliant day"

jenny, mum of one, oxfordshire

"The course is great. I was astounded at what I learnt. It has helped me navigate stressful situations - it helps me figure out what was going on inside my mind  and to work through all of that. I really like that I can access the videos any time. I've listened to a couple when I can't sleep - I've worked through an activity and then gone back to bed and slept soundly! I've told my friends about the course"

Yuki, mum of two, london

"I’ve just signed up for the course. I did your 5 day free one and found it so helpful and uplifting. I’m constantly signing up to mailing lists and trying to read how to be a ‘better’, calmer Mum and found what you said in those short videos so much more helpful and accessible. I've been telling all my mum friends about you"
