Reconcile your ambitions as a businesswoman, your needs as a mother, to truly thrive personally & professionally

How do you find balance as a businesswoman and a mother?

Someone once said… “Women nowadays are expected to work as though they weren’t mothers, and mother as though they weren’t working”.

It’s no wonder we are burnt out!

I believe there is another way.

Enabling self-knowledge and self-empowerment is at the heart of what I do.

I work with women and mothers who are feeling overwhelmed and burnt out by the pressure to perform, to juggle, to hustle in their different roles… and help them reconnect with what truly matters. From that place, I support them to make decisions that serve their greater wellbeing and the contribution they are here to make.

I have a special interest in supporting business women and mothers through life transitions, both personal and professional: considering or going through a career change, navigating the demands of work and mothering, preparing to go back to work after maternity leave, or any other turning point that requires overcoming self-doubt and courageously drawing their own picture of success.

Matrescence is the word that describes the radical transformation process women experience as they navigate their mothering years. New values, strengths, needs and desires emerge during that time that have the potential to completely redefine a woman’s identity. My intention is for every woman to feel seen, heard and supported as she reclaims her unique gifts and power in this season of her life.

Let me help you find your balance and be engaged and intentional in business and motherhood.

After having two children, I didn’t know how to get my life back and felt stuck in relationship and my job. Feeling depressed and lost, Elise helped me take a step back and let go of my limiting beliefs, working towards what I wanted to achieve in life and how I wanted to feel about it. I gained clarity thanks to Elise’s broad range of techniques. I am now the mother, wife, friend that I aspired to be. ~ Marie

Elise, THE support I needed

Working with Elise has been a real insightful experience.

Overcoming Mother Guilt

The guilt monster is the one that whispers in your ear: “you SHOULD be doing a better job”; “you SHOULD be more ambitious”; “your body SHOULD be back to how it was before kids”. It is relentless and often brings its old friend, shame, to the party.

Even though it’s a common experience for women, it doesn’t make it “normal”. Read more…

Perfectionism is not a healthy habit. Even less so when it comes to motherhood, unless you’re keen to rub shoulders with overwhelm, resentment, rage and the feeling of never being satisfied, which can eventually lead to maternal burnout.

Here is the new mantra you can adopt to preserve your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing when faced with the demands of mothering, working and everything in between: “Good enough is the new perfect”. Read more …
