Mum to Mum coaching are monthly sessions led by Emely Mösko, both professional and mom. This is for both new moms and moms-to-be. Emely has a background in psychology and has been working in the field of coaching, supervising and facilitation for more than 10 years. In her words….
“I know it’s tough to be a mom sometimes, especially when living abroad and not having the usual supportive environment around you. We often feel exhausted, anxious, overwhelmed, helpless… And all it would take sometimes to make us feel better is someone listening, someone that knows exactly how we feel. That’s why I started the mum to mum coaching. It’s an opportunity to talk, ask questions, get support, share experiences or just to get to know other mums and mingle. Mum to mum coaching is a structured and highly efficient concept on how to get support and ideas from different perspectives within a very short time (max 30 min). You can either present “your case” and ask the other mums for advice or you can support the brainstorming and consultation process. Topics can be anything and everything concerning your actual role as a mum.”
