6 greater sense of self-worth, and they are less likely to experience depression and anxiety later in life. In contrast, daughters who have strained or conflicted relationships with their mothers are at a higher risk of developing mental health issues. Despite the importance of this relationship, many mothers and daughters struggle to understand each other and communicate effectively, which can lead to hurt feelings, disappointment, and estrangement. This is where I can help. Coaching is particularly helpful when it comes to making decisions about relationships and repairing strained relationships. Research has shown that coaching can significantly improve relationship satisfaction and decrease relationship distress, particularly in cases where there has been a history of conflict or tension. In my coaching program, I provide a safe and compassionate space for daughters to experience their feelings and work through any unresolved issues that may have held them back. I offer a fresh perspective, help them overcome the fear of rejection, communicate more assertively and effectively, and guide them towards building a self-loving relationship with themselves, and stronger relationships with the people in their lives. The Coaching Process The coaching program has three main phases: 1) Developing Awareness 2) Reclaiming Your Needs 3) Strengthen Self-Identity. During the first awareness phase, I use a mother-daughter relationship history map to bring daughters’ attention to the generational pattern of women in their family and the underlying causes of their mother-daughter relationship conflict. This phase allows daughters to reflect on their past and present experiences with their mothers as well as recognize generational patterns and beliefs in their family, culture, and society. The second phase focuses on helping daughters work through their chronic guilt and distorted sense of responsibility, understand their attitudes towards their needs, and set healthier boundaries. By working through these issues, daughters are better prepared to express their emotions and communicate their needs effectively. The last phase is about helping daughters strengthen their self-identity, which includes speaking up for themselves, forgiving themselves and others, and making their own rules. Through this phase, daughters are empowered to create new, healthier relationship patterns that allow for stronger emotional connections. Here we hear from Yingli Wang from Live Your Worth as her services win a title in the Mental Health Awards 2023. From Strained to Strong: The Power of Mother-Daughter Relationship Coaching My Coaching Program As a mother-daughter relationship therapist and coach, I have dedicated my career to helping daughters navigate the complex and often challenging dynamics of their relationships with their mothers. With a background in both business and psychosynthesis counselling, I bring a unique perspective and skillset to my counselling and coaching service, providing holistic and compassionate support to my clients. My journey to becoming a mother-daughter relationship coach began with my own challenging relationship with my mother. I know first-hand how difficult it can be to navigate your relationship with your mother, particularly when there are unresolved issues or past traumas involved. However, through my own personal journey of healing and growth, I came to understand the power of shifting our patterns and cultivating a healthy relationship that is not based on past traumas. This experience led me to become a mother-daughter relationship therapist and coach, so that I can help other women achieve the same level of healing, growth, and transformation. A hallmark of my approach to coaching is my expertise in a range of therapeutic modalities. These include the mother-daughter attachment model, family system, compassion-focused therapy, inner child and parts work, transpersonal psychology, Gestalt therapy, and more. By drawing on these various tools and techniques, I can provide a holistic and individualized approach to coaching that meets you where you are and helps you move forward in a positive and productive way. Whether you are looking to explore the optimal level of closeness and proximity between you and your mother, make a decision about staying or leaving, separate from your mother, repair a damaged relationship with your mother, or simply gain a deeper understanding of yourselves and your mother-daughter relationship dynamics, I offer multiple ways to help you achieve your desired goals.
