Bell Lomax Moreton are incredibly excited to announce that Lauren Gardner has sold UK & Commonwealth rights for debut author, Anna Mathur, to Piatkus’ Senior Commissioning Editor Jillian Young!
Mind Over Mother: Every mum’s guide to worry and anxiety in the first year by Anna Mathur will be published by Piatkus in May 2020.
Do you overthink what you said to the mum in the supermarket queue? Is your internal dialogue more critical than kind? Perhaps you wake to check your baby is breathing, or the sight of a rash sends you down an internet search rabbit hole. Whatever your level of anxiety, however much it impacts your life, this book is for you.
Anxiety is making motherhood a less pleasant, more fraught and pressured experience, and we do not have to accept joy-sapping worry and energy-draining overthinking as part of the motherhood job description. In Mind Over Mother, Anna Mathur explains how to:
* Understand anxiety, why it affects you and what to do about it
* Make your mind a kinder, calmer, happier place to be
* Transform your motherhood experience by addressing your thinking
Mind Over Mother is full of light bulb moments of realisation. It will have you learning, laughing and loving yourself through the journey of motherhood. You will learn to address the most important conversation you’ll ever have – the one inside your head, because investing in your mental health is the best gift you can offer yourself and your baby.
Anna Mathur is a mum of three and an experienced Psychotherapist and passionate psycho-educator, with a specialism for working with women. As well as working in a classical therapeutic setting, she shares her personal mental health story @annamathur to her 100k+ Instagram following.
A note from Anna Mathur:
We are finally beginning to see the cracks in the veneer of the ‘supermum’ ideal, but we need more than just relatable stories to validate our motherhood experiences. My book is bursting with personal and professional, tangible tools and insights for better mental wellbeing in motherhood. My dream would be that this book would be pressed into the hands of every mother as they cradle their newborn. I have a passionate belief that every mum can enjoy more headspace, joy and freedom from worry and anxiety.
A note from Jillian Young:
Anna’s words and advice are a breath of fresh air in the parenting space. I find myself laughing, agreeing and crying with her and I know her legions of fans will, too. This book should be on the bookshelf of all mums – it will resonate and help everyone
Praise for Mind Over Mother:
With conversations on Maternal Mental Health on the rise, and more women speaking up about the way they feel, Anna Mathur’s insight as a psychotherapist AND mother make her someone you can trust. She offers little nuggets of gold while reminding us to point some of our kindness and love inwards.
