Do you feel depleted and frazzled?
Are you frustrated and unable to parent the way you always wanted to?
Does your child’s demands for attention clash with your own emotional or physical needs?
Do you often run on empty?
Do you sometimes feel like you're not cut out for this?
We will help you become nurtured. We know - you never have time for self-care. There is no space to fill your own tank. You try me-time and 2 minutes after you're back, you feel as exhausted as before.
Do you sometimes get tired of being a mom and feel really, really bad for feeling this way? We've been there. We are here to support you on this roller coaster journey and help you create more mental space, patience, and ease - for you and your child.
We provide tailored mindfulness practices that fold into your daily routines, take away no extra time, and benefit everyone.

It's not woo woo it's backed by science.
Mindfulness and self-compassion can reduce anxiety, tame the inner-critic so you can meet your struggles with more ease. This in turn, allows for strong healthy attachment with your child. This secure bond and you modeling self-regulation are the best gifts you can give to your child for life. Kids regulate their emotions mirroring you.

I was exhausted; my anxiety was through the roof. I felt hopeless. Parents Pause program showed me how many opportunities and ways there are actually to recharge with my baby around. I finished the training restored and grounded, ready to take on new challenges. Now I have tools to keep myself sane :). Interestingly, my son is easier to manage now when I’m in a more confident place.”

It was absolutely great. It made me more aware of my (intense) environment and my reactions to it. I found it even entertaining."

Ela is a great leader, gives compassionate advice and facilitates in a way that is free of judgment and welcomes everyone so that we felt comfortable. She's very kind and eager to support us."
Jen and Chris, coaching clients.
She also creates an environment that is supportive, open, and accepting. I have learned so much and was able to get rid of my crazy thoughts that were making me feel miserable. Now I enjoy being a mom so much more and I know what to do to help myself when things don’t go according to plan.”
