Motherhood Unplugged: Nurturing The Woman Within

WITH Leigh Berry, MSW, RSW, RHN

Pause. Feel. Tune In. A time-out that’s just for you

Mom life is a whirlwind, isn’t it? From navigating those prenatal or early postpartum days to juggling the household, daycare drop offs, school activities and everything else in between, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, disconnected and lose sight of ourselves as women. That’s why we invite you to join us for a transformative workshop designed exclusively for Mamas. In this nurturing and empowering space, we’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal, allowing you to reconnect with yourself, your emotions, and inner guidance system.

Something for you

During this workshop we’ll slow things down and create a nurturing environment where you can pause and breathe freely, away from the distractions and obligations surrounding everyone else’s needs. This time is about you and for YOU, to honour your inner experience and come home to yourself. To feel held and supported without judgment. Whether you’re grappling with fears surrounding childbirth or postpartum, navigating the highs and lows of motherhood, or feeling isolated and disconnected from yourself, this workshop is your sanctuary.

Through guided exercises and heartfelt discussions we will

Acknowledge and honor your inner experience, creating space for all thoughts and feelings so you can exist a little more freely.

Use somatic movement and dance to ground and connect with the body, allowing felt emotions to be expressed and moved through. 

Engage in self-inquiry through journaling to guide reflection and gain clarity on what truly matters, awakening your authentic self and inner guidance system.  

Connect and share with other Moms going through similar experiences, in a safe and supportive environment. 

Walk away with

An empowered sense of inner strength created collectively by you and the other beautiful Mamas by your side. 

A renewed perspective on how to hold space for difficult emotions and experiences. 

Tangible tools to connect with your body’s wisdom and navigate the storms of motherhood with grace and resilience.   

Just in time for Mother’s Day, gift yourself a break from the hustle and bustle and join us for an afternoon of self-discovery, connection, and transformation. Come home to yourself. Because as Moms, we deserve to feel seen, heard, and supported as we navigate the beautiful chaos of motherhood.

Meet Leigh Berry. A woman, a Mama and a Registered Social Worker + Holistic Nutritionist.  Leigh is equally excited and challenged by her own journey to shift how she relates to her emotions, food, and the practice of connecting with her authentic self daily.  Currently Leigh’s biggest teachers are both under 5. As a Mom it’s so easy to get lost in the current of life and pulled in so many different directions. The overwhelm is real and we all need support and reminders when it comes to prioritizing our own needs. 

Leigh has worked in both community and health care settings with vulnerable sector populations (including mental health) for the last 15 years, and has been running her private practice since 2016. When Leigh is not working you will find her spending time with family, out in nature, doing yoga or dance, playing in the kitchen, or cozying up with meditation, creative writing and a chai latte.  

Leigh works primarily with other women + Moms who feel at the whim of their emotions~ disconnected, alone, anxious, overwhelmed, sad or depressed, and stressed.  There are often experiences of self-doubt, self-criticism, and a strong desire to feel better, to feel good enough.  Patterns of using food (perhaps unknowingly) to cope, may also exist. 

In her practice Leigh uniquely provides nutrition services alongside use of various best-practice therapeutic modalities for the purpose of psychotherapy.  Leigh believes that it is important to understand what is at the root of our problems, and integrates a mind-body approach to support biological, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. Guiding women home to themselves, she helps foster a greater sense of inner connection and alignment. Allowing for a felt sense of ease, confidence, and trust to emerge. 

Curious to learn more about Leigh? Visit her website leighberryco.com to learn more about the kind of work she does to support women and Moms in our community.  

As Leigh is a Registered Social Worker, this workshop can be covered under most health benefit plans as group therapy.  The fee includes a brief intake appointment before the scheduled date of the workshop and a receipt will be provided upon completion for you to submit to your insurance provider.
