I’m Jacqueline Kelly from Our Brave Hearts.
I am a fully certified Life Coach and I have been supporting mums who feel lost in the transition from being the woman they used to be to the mother they are now since 2018. I know the process of discovering who you are at this stage of your motherhood journey, and I use results based coaching to guide you through it. I’m a mum too, and I’ve been there.
I understand that feeling of suffocation where you feel like you can’t breathe with the pressure and responsibility that comes with motherhood. The ever present guilt you carry because you’re happy to be going to work or to be getting out of the house on your own for an hour or two.
Yes, nowadays there is more discussion, more awareness around how lonely and isolating motherhood can be. But this doesn’t stop mums feeling ashamed to admit how they feel.
Breaking through the silence and finding joy in my new self wasn’t easy. Change never is. But it has been the most rewarding journey of my life so far.
That’s why I created Our Brave Hearts.
I had been a stay at home mum for 3 years when I attended a weekend conference related to health and mindset. I talked with so many mums that weekend. We shared our birth stories, we spoke from our hearts about the impact, good and bad, motherhood has had in all areas of our lives. I felt something inside of me ignite, something powerful. With complete clarity, I knew my purpose was to help mums thrive.
I have since completed an Advanced Diploma in Personal, Leadership and Executive Coaching and have also trained to become a Demartini Method Facilitator Ⓡ. Reading and studying the subject of motherhood and how it impacts a woman’s identity is a huge part of my life, the more I realised that our perception of motherhood is based on a fantasy, the more I wanted to find out where these beliefs around motherhood come from.
Let's talk about what's going on with you and how you can confidently redefine what's possible for you.
Thanks to my professional training and continued studies, I’ve undergone huge personal transformations since that weekend conference.
I have learned to admit how difficult I find motherhood without shame. I know how to make sure I am not comparing myself to fantasies that I have built in my mind of what motherhood ‘should’ look like and I no longer allow the lie of ‘mum guilt’ to rob me of the confidence to prioritise myself as well as my family.
It’s possible to rediscover and reclaim confidence in yourself and your life. I didn’t do this alone, and you don’t have to either. Reach out and let’s arrange a time to talk about how I can support you.
Together, let’s uncover your brave heart.
