Has Being a Mum Transformed Your Life?

2 October 2009 No Comment

Becoming a mum can be a life transformational event.  It can impact women in different ways:  it can be exhausting, overwhelming, frustrating and absolutely fabulous all at the same time.  Sometimes the reality of becoming a mum and what it means in every aspect of our lives only becomes apparent six months or a year after baby is born.  

There is a great deal of research to show how women change as a result of having children both in terms of their priorities and their skill set.  There is a critical time when Mums are wondering what is next once their baby/ children are established in some kind of routine and the initial fug of motherhood has passed.  Mums with two or more children in particular struggle with this dilemma because of the level of organisation required to hold down a good job and the crippling cost of good childcare. 

Minerva’s Mind has come about through the passion and drive of two Mums who wanted to help other Mums get more out of life by making conscious decisions about their lives.  We support women through a range of activities: 

  1. There is an online community which is full of articles, tips and information.  It is highly interactive in that members of the community comment on posts and discussion topics which cover all aspects of women and leadership.  To find out more check it out – www.facebook.com/minervasmind
  2. Many Mums benefit from the support of a qualified coach to give them the space to reflect on who they have become; what their passions are; and what the barriers are that are holding them back.  By coming together in a group they benefit from being together with like-minded people and gain the same skills as they would in a one-on-one coaching course but at a much more affordable price.  It is for these reasons that Karen and Kate set up Minerva’s Mind for Mums, a six session course over 12 weeks.
  3. For those not quite ready to make a commitment to a six session programme, Kate and Karen also run a two hour one off session on a burning topic identified by the person who acts as host.  The idea for these sessions is that they will also be in the evening but that the main contact will host the session in their home and just like an Ann Summers or QI book party, invite 5-9 of their own friends, who are also interested in exploring the issue.  Examples of recent sessions include topics such as “Discover Your Inner Gremlins”, “Using Peak Experiences to Sustain Motivation” and “Create a work-life balance that works for you”.

If you are interested in know more about how Minerva’s Mind could support you or your friends, please contact Kate or Karen on kate@minervasmind.co.uk or karen@minervasmind.co.uk.
