I did not expect to get so many practical tips about budgeting and grocery shopping, surprising but most welcome! It seems obvious now, but that part of financial literacy and my self-confidence is going to have a huge impact on how I feel about the boundaries I recently set around money in my marriage. I enjoyed every minute! I feel uncomfortable with my own weaknesses, but really–I did just find this so helpful and exciting and Graeme you were so insightful.

I didn’t know what to expect from my first coaching experience with Graeme. She made me feel so comfortable – like we’ve known each other forever. She was able to quickly get to the root of what I needed and gave me some clear steps to follow. She helped me to see where I’m doing well and where I can also make improvements to increase my happiness and effectiveness. The time flew by and I felt so much more on track after our call.
I totally loved my session with Graeme, during which we worked through my intense feelings of guilt for doing things for myself because I have been mentally giving all of my time to my husband and feel like I owe it to him to have all of my focus. Graeme encouraged me to take up space in my relationship and ask for what I need. I’m writing this review while waiting on a friend for a lunch date! It’ll take some work but I am feeling more confident in the fact that I deserve to take care of myself – and expect my partner to help facilitate this self-care.
One of my favorite components of The Mom Center is the monthly themes Graeme has created, and with each theme we have a monthly phone call with an expert guest speaker. Each call has been an invitation to gently explore and ask myself questions I’ve been shying away from. I find myself noticing and subtly integrating the answers into my life. As a mom, I don’t need a lot of a-ha moments that stop me in my tracks and send me on a soul-searching backpacking trip (through Target, I mean). I need to recognize and shift unhelpful patterns so I can make long-term sustainable changes. The Mom Center is helping me do exactly that.
