This week, I’m talking to Tamsin Williamson, an accredited Transformational Life Coach and mum-of-two, who goes by the name The Parenthood Coach.
Tamsin is passionate about supporting unfulfilled Mums who are stuck in a professional rut and feel confused about who they are and what they want from life since becoming a parent.
Through 1:1 coaching she helps her clients find more direction, confidence, balance and fulfilment, and empowers them to create a life where career and parenthood work in harmony.
In this episode, we talked about:
Tamsin’s story from finding that her long-time marketing and events job sparked conflict with her new identity as a parent, and how she navigated that difficult realisation
Why having kids doesn’t mean you have to lose your identity as a human or a woman, and how to combine all of those different parts
How to deal with “mum guilt” and shame over not being perfect as a mother or a human - and why there’s no such thing as perfect anyway!
The biggest parenthood myths that need to be busted, like, right now
How to ask for help, and why it’s so important to find time for yourself - even if only for a few minutes a day
This conversation was warm, open and honest - and I hope that it will offer some real food for thought, whether you’re already a parent, about to become one, thinking about it, or maybe simply have friends who have kids, and want a little insight into their lives and how you might support them better through the struggles and triumphs that come from such a life-changing experience as having children.
