Who Am I?

I live with a rare endocrine disorder which resulted in many symptoms including a brain tumour, weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, and crippling Insomnia. Those sleepless nights led to feelings of exhaustion, especially when returning home after a long day’s work.

After my daughter was born, I started struggling with what I now term “parental anxiety” – those awful feelings of failure and being completely overwhelmed.

But wait – I’m a parenting coach!

How could I feel like I was failing?

Parenting was supposed to be easy for me, right?

I discovered that parents often fall into the trap of being so overwhelmed by our busy schedules that you start to believe you have “no time” for anything, especially yourself and interpersonal relationships.

When I recognised this about myself, I literally decided to stop everything, simplify my life and take the necessary steps towards becoming a focused parent. Since then, I’ve dedicated my time to creating a 10-step parenting formula that I use to navigate my way through my daughter’s childhood. Us parents can take control of our busy schedules, reduce our parental anxiety and benefit from what now I term “focused parenting”. Through practicing the fundamental principles of this program, I parent with confidence (even when faced with inevitable parental challenges) and feel more relaxed than ever before. I’ve left feelings of “burnout” in the past and have an established routine which works for me. My healthy work/life balance allows me to be productive in my career while still having enough time and energy for my darling daughter, Grace. 

My primary goal is to help busy parents everywhere feel supported on this amazing journey of parenthood by reducing everyday stresses, living more mindfully, and focusing on what really matters in this lifetime: your children.
