As a mother of three children and a grandmother to four grandchildren, as well as being a Counsellor and Spiritual Life Coach to many clients, Bernie Ginnane is very aware of the importance of Mothering not only others, but Mothering Self! 

"I work with clients to help them identify, process and heal their emotional wounds, often formed during childhood. I assist them to find the lesson in their wound, and to move more confidently forward in their lives. Together the client and I initiate long-lasting change in their beliefs about themselves, their self-worth and life purpose. Together we create a positive self-care routine that supports the clients in Mothering and Prioritising themselves so that they can enjoy a more fulfilling life with a greater sense of inner peace."

Mothering Self is about looking after Yourself in ways that you would have chosen to look after Yourself when you were a child. 

Mothering Self means prioritising that YOU MATTER. 

💗 Your feelings matter. 

💗 Your inner peace and healing matters. 

💗 Your dreams and goals matter. 

💗 Your need for a safe sense of belonging matters. 

💗 Your need to be heard and respected matters. 

💗 Your need, and right to be heard and to express, matters.  

💗 Your need to heal wounds of the past matter. 


Mothering Self is about consciously attending to not only what you eat, ingest and the quality of your sleep, but also the way you speak to yourself, as well as the relationships and environments you choose to be in.

Mothering Self is about the choices you make as to where you put your focus and attention, and how you choose to spend your time and energy. 


💗 Be Your Own Best Friend.

💗 Be Your Own Best Listener to Yourself.

💗 Be Your Own Cheer Squad.


Regardless of whether your emotional or physical needs have been met by others in the past or currently, it is important for you to choose to be self-aware of how you are thinking, feeling and acting and to attend to your needs as an adult in healthy positive ways.

Mothering Self is choosing to heal the wounds of the past so that you can improve your relationship not only with yourself, but your relationships with others.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to speak to themselves with kindness, compassion and positivity, rather than judgement and negative self-talk.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to leave a toxic relationship. 

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to put in place a self-care routine and be disciplined to follow the routine but compassionate and patient with self, depending on the demands upon you at the time.  

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to follow through on their instincts, against what others are saying. It is about listening to, and honouring one’s inner voice. 

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to take time out to Pause, and Listen to their feelings.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone feels to say ‘No’, and acts upon that feeling, without feeling obligated to say ‘Yes’, to please another.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone follows their gut feeling to walk their own path, to express their own way, without harm to another.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to put in place and maintain healthy boundaries with people and things.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to dust themselves off, recover, recharge and then rise again.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone chooses to believe in themselves.

👩🏼‍🍼 When someone acknowledges both their small and big wins.
