Mums in mind

Therapeutic support group for new mums struggling with the transition to motherhood

New course starting at the Rose Theatre, Kingston starting soon! Please click here for details.

We often lose sight of our own needs when we become a mum

These sessions provide a safe, non-judgmental place to discuss the demands of motherhood and how your life and relationships have changed.

Our series of 4 sessions are hosted by psychotherapist - and mother of 4 - Liz Goldspink (MBACP).

  • Meet a small group of other new mums who are working out how to cope with motherhood.

About me

I decided to set up this group after my daughter had her first baby. Although I’m a mum to four adult children, I’d forgotten just how hard it is in the first few months. I also realized that there’s a real lack of support for new mums struggling with the demands of a new baby and adjusting to life as a mum.

There’s a whole raft of advice on what to do with the baby – but very little on how to look after your own mental wellbeing.

As a psychotherapist I’m well placed to guide and support new mums as they navigate this demanding transition and I also feel that the support gained from group sessions is hugely helpful when it’s easy to feel isolated and alone.

Don’t struggle on your own – do get in touch.
