Core Focus: Motherhood
Drawing upon my 15+ years experience as a Social Worker and my personal matrescence experience, I provide holistic and tailored support to mothers to help them navigate the changes that occur during matrescence.
Hi, I’m Carla. I’m a Social Worker, Life Coach and the founder of Strength In Mothers. I provide coaching and emotional support to all mothers during the important life transition of matrescence.
With over 16 years experience in the Social Work profession, I have supported people of all ages and demographics, using a strengths-based and solution-focused approach. More recently, I became a certified Life Coach after graduating from the International Coaching Federation accredited Mama Rising program. Combining both my Social Work skills and coaching techniques, I now work with overwhelmed Mums to reclaim balance and calm in their busy lives.
As a new Mum, I felt overwhelmed and stressed and this was only amplified when I had two kids under two years old. I thought I should know how to cope with this transition, but I felt like I was failing. I was deeply unhappy and was not the mother or partner that I wanted to be. When I learned about matrescence, I found a new compassion for myself and began to heal. Having walked this journey myself, I now help other Mums combat the overwhelm and bring more joy and peace to their lives.
I currently live in Naarm (Melbourne) with my husband, two daughters and our adopted fur baby. My interests include meditation and mindfulness and I am passionate about human rights, equality and inclusion.
