Motherhood: From Surviving to Thriving

  • The Market Stores 2 High Street Reigate, England, RH2 9BG United Kingdom (map)

What if it were possible to help ourselves thrive, rather than simply survive?
Stop feeling like a failure and start enjoying motherhood.

Ever felt that being a parent is the hardest job in the world and you’re constantly comparing yourself to others while everyone else is nailing it? Most of us are just surviving each day and putting ourself to the bottom of the list. It’s time to ditch the mum-guilt and vision of perfect parenting.

Meet Suzy Reading, author of The Self-Care Revolution and Anya Hayes, author of The Supermum Myth and learn how to shift your mindset with tools to nourish you as the mother and woman you are and nurture and embrace who you are becoming.

It's time for your own self-care revolution!


Friday 17 May, 10:45 - 12:45.


The Market Stores, 2 High Street, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 9AY


As well as the opportunity to hear from and meet Suzy and Anya, tea and coffee will be included in the ticket price so you’ll have a chance to relax, meet other mums and enjoy a morning just for you.

We first discovered Anya through her Instagram account, Mother’s.Wellness.Toolkit (go follow her!) and then her book, The Supermum Myth.

Anya is a mum of two boys and is an author and speaker particularly focused on women’s health and wellness. She is also a Pilates teacher specialising in pregnancy and postnatal, and training to teach Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. She has written five books: My Pilates Guru, A Little Course in Pilates, Pregnancy: The Naked Truth, The Supermum Myth and Pilates for Pregnancy. Check out her website for more about her.

Modern motherhood is relentless. Mums are expected to be all things to all people: to keep on top of all our children’s emotional and educational needs, have regular mani-pedis and a sparkling social life, plus climb to our stellar career – all without the wheels falling off.

It’s hard to remain peaceful and balanced at all times when small children sit on your lap while you’re on the loo. Mothers’ Wellness Toolkit offers you calming tools for those days when you’re tearing your hair out and secretly want to escape out the bathroom window. Mind and body tools you can easily incorporate into your daily habits, to build your resilience and positivity.

Our Founder and Director, Miriam, first discovered Suzy after the birth of her second child. Stress and exhaustion was at an all time high and her health was suffering because of it. After reading Suzy’s book, The Self-Care Revolution, Miriam learnt ways to shift her mindset and make her self-care a priority.

Suzy is a mother of two, a Chartered Psychologist, Yoga Teacher, and Health Coach. She specialises in wellbeing: head, heart and body, helping people manage their emotions, energetic bank balance and the inevitable stresses of life.

It was her life experience of motherhood colliding with the terminal illness of her father that sparked her passion for self-care which she now teaches to her clients of all ages to cope during periods of stress, loss and change and to boost their resilience in the face of future challenges. 

Suzy is a contributing editor for Psychologies Magazine and the Psychology Expert for wellbeing brand Neom Organics. She figure skated her way through her childhood, growing up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, and now makes her home in hills of Hertfordshire, UK. Her first book ‘The Self-Care Revolution’ is out now. Her second book 'Stand Tall Like a Mountain: Mindfulness & Self-Care for Children and Parents' will be out on April 4, 2019 shortly followed by 'Self-Care Every Day' on June 6th. Check out her Instagram account.

What’s [The Self-Care Revolution} all about? In a nutshell: I share with you my definition of self-care, take you through my own healing journey and an exploration of the nature of stress and burnout to get clear on why we need self-care. And most importantly, I share with you ‘The Vitality Wheel’ framework that shows you how to actually make self-care happen.

With a passion for birth, mothers and women’s health, our Founder and Director, Miriam, will be hosting and interviewing our panel at our event. After 15 years working in the London and New York theatre worlds, Miriam's life and work was totally transformed after the birth of her daughter in 2014 and her son in 2016. Miriam trained as a hypnobirthing teacher and has been designing and delivering our courses for four years.

She is not only passionate about all things birth, but also cares deeply about preparing and supporting women as they adapt to the fourth trimester...and beyond. Her ambition with Parent Tribe LIVE events is to bring you the most empowered and connected experience to parenthood - from pregnancy, birth, mothering, and all the pursuits of your passions and wellbeing alongside it all. Whatever stage you're at, we want to bring your closer to your inner connection with yourself and reveal to you your own brilliance and capacity. To stay posted on all future Parent Tribe events, remember to subscribe to our newsletter.


‘Babes in arms’ are welcome. We appreciate that finding childcare can be difficult and we want this event to be inclusive. If you have questions about bringing a child, please contact us and we’ll be really happy to chat about it.


Unfortunately, this event is not accessible for people in wheelchairs or with mobility issues as it is on the first floor and the venue does not have a life. We are working really hard to find a more accessible venue for futre events.
