The 5-Min Journal

Writing is very therapeutic when you put pen to paper.  We encourage all of our clients to journal for 5 minutes per day. Take time to acknowledge your accomplishments for the day by noting at least 5 wins.  Notice how you feel each day, where your energy may feel it's highest, and times when you may feel irritable, tired, sad.  Did anyone or anything trigger extreme feelings (positive or negative) during your day.  Creating awareness of our feelings helps us along the journey in recovery.  We start to re-connect heart and mind, recognizing our environment and responses to it.

FAQs

Should I still meet with my physician for health guidance?

Yes, Amy Looper does not provide medical care and recommends that even as a coaching client, you should meet with your physician for medical advice.  Coaching is an effective holistic method to reduce anxiety and depression but does not replace the medical guidance you may have received from your physician.  

How Long Does Your Coaching Program Last?

Coaching packages are designed around your individual needs.  There is a minimum of 4, 1-hour sessions. In our experience, some women need to work with a third party (coach, therapist, psychologist) for just a few sessions and others for several months depending on the severity of their condition.

 

Are You A Trained Mental Health Professional?

Amy Looper is trained through experience living through postpartum depression & anxiety, experiencing years of PTSD after a traumatic birth.  She deeply understands how mind and body are affected by trauma and continues education through Postpartum Support International and her mentor, Dr. Shoshana Bennett.

 

How Is Coaching Effective for Postpartum Depression & Anxiety?

There are many options to treat perinatal mental health conditions.  Amy Looper, 2x postpartum depression survivor has experienced treatments such as EMDR, depression medication prescribed by a physician and trying to "let it pass".  These provided temporary relief but didn't solve the longterm battle with anxiety & depression. She learned that nothing helped her truly break through the darkness of anxiety and depression like talking with a third party and working on processing trauma, acknowledging emotion, recognizing self worth and stepping into a new leadership level for her life.  Yoga, meditation were also very helpful to connect heart and mind. 

When coching with Amy you can expect to be truly heard, to be encouraged to use your voice and no longer suffer in silence, to work out pent up anger, rage, worry, grief and acknowledge achievements, celebrate your life as a Mom.  Through weekly coaching sessions and private support group sessions Amy supports your individual journey out of the darkness and into a life full of happiness and light.

Imagine a world where you were present when playing with your kids, had the energy to enjoy your family and spouse/life partner.  You were free from negative thoughts and memories of a traumatic birth, free from worry about the "what if's".  

What Is Our Vision?

Amy Looper started Postpartum Coaching With Heart to help other women experiencing postpartum depression & anxiety to break free to live the purpose God created them individually for.  When mothers take time to heal, their marriages/ relationships positively shift and their children experience a happy home vs growing up with an anxious, depressed parent.  Our vision is to support your journey to Lead Like A Mother from the delivery room to the boardroom.
