With Naomi Stadlen
Thursdays, 10.00-11:30am, babies of any age welcome
Mothers Talking is a relaxed and friendly space for meeting other mums. It’s not like a casual chat among friends, though, it has a structure that encourages discussion, and is highly supportive, led by counsellor Naomi Stadlen. Few jobs other than motherhood leave women feeling so alone, so unsupported, and with so much responsibility. Mothers face all kinds of decisions, and many feel unprepared for this, or situations can be entirely unexpected. Relationships with family, friends and colleagues may also change when a first or subsequent child comes along.
It is heartwarming to discover, by talking, how much we all share as mothers. Talking affirms the importance of what we are doing as mothers and this group offers a wonderful space to share, to feel supported, and to realise that you are doing really well! Babies enjoy these meetings too. There is no age limit for them and both breast and bottle fed babies are welcome.
Naomi is a BACP-accredited counsellor and UKRC Registered Independent Counsellor. She teaches at several London colleges, offering the first course of its kind entitled ‘The Psychology of Motherly Love’. She is also a breastfeeding counsellor and has trained with both La Leche League and the NCT.
Naomi is the author of two acclaimed books that every expectant or new mother should read:-
‘What Mothers Do – Especially When it Looks Like Nothing’
and ‘How Mothers Love’
Where, When & Cost
