- Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
My name is Leanne and I am a mum of four living in rural Northumberland.
As an emotional health and well being coach and founder of the Happy Mama Movement; I am an advocate for supporting mums and their children live a happy and balanced life.
- What is your business about?
I help parents create calm in the home and get back to enjoying parenting and move on from focusing on the daily stresses of parenthood, I work 121 with mums who feel stuck and who are struggling to get the emotional balance in life and I also work with teens and children to support their understanding of their emotions and the connection to their thoughts and to realise the power they have inside of them to navigate smoothly through life……. and breath! ha
- What made you get into this line of business?
I basically found myself at an all time low, struggling to find joy in parenting, struggling to find joy in life and dealing with my husband who at the time was facing some issues with his own mental health all while running my own business and having four kids.
I woke up one day and realised there was more to life and set off to find it and in doing so I felt inspired to help anyone who has ever felt like I used to.
I was also inspired to work with children as my husbands mental health issues plus my lack of lustre for life had a knock on effect in my children’s life – which I am so happy to have turned around.
- What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
I get up in the morning because I love my life. I love my home, I love my work, I love my family and I have finally found my inner joy.
My morning routine consists of mentally noting my appreciation and gratitude for everything in my life and the things to come, I take 10 full in breaths and full out breaths and I pull a card from my keepers of the light deck for guidance…. Then I have ten gallons of coffee
- What is the best advice you have ever been given?
I tend to listen to my own intuition and rarely seek advice from others so this is a hard question to answer, I suppose an ex boss once said to me that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and my interpretation of that was that nothing in life is worth loosing your inner peace over, you can also find a solution when you tackle a problem with love and understanding.
- What is a book you would say everyone must read?
F**k It Therapy
- Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I am opening up my mama and me positive living academy for enrolments. The academy focuses on the whole picture, mums mindset and emotional balance, parenting and supporting your child with their emotional needs. Its a six week academy with weekly training, activities, guidance and support – and by the end of the course you will have a new, clear and peaceful approach to parenting and life and you will be able to support your children to achieve the same.I love this academy, I have poured my heart and soul into it, I focused on how I felt in the past, my children have given their input and I have worked with lots of mums as guinea pigs to fine tune the content and its amazing!
- What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Breath work, it instantly changes your emotional state. Full in breath and full out breath.
- What do you love most about helping others?
The moment I see a light bulb go off and my clients whole body language changes, like they have just found their own joy – I love that.
- Your favourite quote?
My favourite quote is – ‘All we are is pure joy, peace and wisdom with the power to create the illusion we are not’
Have a wonderful day x
