“Unhelpful Mum Thoughts” & How to Cope with Them – with Dr Rachel McInnes
As women we tend to put a lot of pressure on ourselves. Motherhood increases this pressure exponentially!
To add insult to injury suddenly every Tom, Debbie, Harry and his mother-in-law are telling us how to parent. What is worse social media is in on the action.
Despite all this, sometimes the worst battering we receive is from ourselves.
These cognitive distortions or ‘unhelpful thinking styles’ are blips in our thinking that have us drawing conclusions that are often not remotely accurate. These conclusions can create a range of unhelpful behaviours.
Unless we learn to notice and manage these thoughts they tend to hijack us.
