The Good Enough Mum

Counselling, Coaching and Support for Mums


Do you secretly worry that you’re a bad Mum?

  • Do you look at other mothers in the school playground, or at a girls’ night out, and think they’re doing a much better job than you?
  • Do other mothers seem more organized and their children better behaved?
  • Are you exhausted from a constant round of work, clearing up and organizing everyone? Do your needs come bottom of the list?
  • Do you struggle with feelings of guilt?

If so, The Good Enough Mum is here to help women just like you.

I’m Josephine HUGHES

I’m a Mum with grown up children (they survived!). I'm a counsellor who works with women who think they aren't very good at being Mums. I’ve been there and I know how it feels.

By working on myself, and with other women, I’ve realized there are ways that we can help ourselves feel better. I’m here to help you feel more calm and confident, get rid of the guilt, and be able to enjoy parenting.

The wonderful thing is, as Mum feels better, the whole family benefits. My family relationships were transformed as I felt happier and more confident in myself and my parenting.

If you'd like my help there are several different ways we can work together:

If you're local to me in Essex, we can arrange a face to face counselling appointment at my office in the heart of central Southend-on-Sea.
If you live further away in the UK, we can arrange online appointments and work together that way.
