My clients were able to release the guilt of working full or part-time, or were helped to come to terms with their decision to go back to work and leave little ones in day care etc.
Others felt like they had lost their identity, maybe they had given up work and did not know who they were anymore, were struggling with any sort of ‘me time’ or felt anger towards themselves and their children at high stress times like difficult bedtimes or sleeping patterns, tantrums, getting out of the house on the school run every morning and many more.
There is no secret formula for successful parenting, but I believe much of the stress we feel is as a result of the unrealistic expectations put upon us by the Media and other well meaning parents and ultimately by ourselves!
By releasing the need for ‘Perfectionism’ or unrealistic expectations, mothers can enjoy their children more and feel proud of the amazing job they are doing.
I am still deeply passionate about this subject. Check out my Parenting Videos on my You Tube Channel for more video resources.
Fear of staying away from home
Wanted to tell you the great news that Lottie had a fabulous school trip and settled herself to sleep calmly. Thank you so much - I think tapping really, really helped! She has come home as a much more confident young lady! Seeing Lottie overcome her fear has really helped us, thanks again! Jade x

Parental overwhelm, relationship issues with Daughter and Husband
I began working with Liz because I was feeling overwhelmed with things and had such a lot on my plate - running my own business and caring for our two young daughters was putting a real strain on me and my relationship with my family members and Husband and I was blaming myself while feeling angry and resentful towards those closest to me, even though I was really trying not to. After our initial session the anger and frustration I had been feeling almost constantly really lifted and cleared. I was suddenly able to remain calm when my daughter had a tantrum which previously I had struggled with, especially when they happened in public and I got conscious of other people staring and judging me. As a result of my new found calmness and empathy towards her, there have been hardly any instances and when they have happened I have been able to deal with them easily, like how I had always imagined I would before I had my own children and certainly not beating myself up afterwards which I always did beforehand. Working with Liz has also had a big impact on my relationship with my Husband, who I now have a lot more patience and understanding with, especially important as we also work together very closely. Through the exercises and visualisations Liz took me through I was able to realise that I was repeating the same patterns as my parents even though I really didn't want to, and as a result they have released and I am able to approach life more lightly and with renewed energy and optimism."
