    Parenting isn’t easy and we were never meant to do it alone. Imagine if there was a place you could go where you got to slow down and take a break from the noise of busy life for a while. A place where you could speak openly, about any issue you are facing and be supported by other Mums, just like you, who will listen, without trying to fix. Where you can leave with a sense of clarity, knowing that change is possible.

    We’ve created this place for you and we’d love for you to join us at See Me Circle.  See Me Circle is a place for Mums to gather and get support through sharing, listening and reflecting.

    See our flyer.
