Going with our Gut!

I'm a big fan of going with my gut.

For a period of time when Jackson (now 9) was very young I doubted everything. I read so many books that were 'textbook' parenting - if you do 'this' your child WILL do 'this!' I was so tired I got lost in what these books were telling me to do and was extremely frustrated as well as disappointed. In the end I scrapped it all and went back to my 'gut,' but it took time and was a really stressful period.

I caught up with Maud from maudbr.com.au to chat about 'intuitions' or going with your 'gut,' informed intuitions and how to reconnect if we have 'lost' touch with ourselves.

I would love to know what you think. Is it really as easy as it sounds? I'm definitely more of a thinker than a feeler!


We often talk about the way French Women raise their children... There's the books French Children Don't Throw Food, How to Raise Children Like a French Woman... and more!

Well, Maud is a French Woman with a great mix of the French Way and our way, bringing together the best of both worlds.

Passionate about people, Maud has been studying human relationships and behaviours for the last decade, predominantly with the International Adult School of Education PRH in France, England and Australia.

Continually researching in the field of personal development and life balance, Maud creates new tools to assist her clients in reaching optimum and satisfying solutions for their lives.

Maud’s training, which extends to over 30 topics includes:

  • Childhood and emotional impact
  • Love life (couple, family, deep friendships)
  • Deep identity and self-image
  • Self-confidence
  • Emotional support and growth tools
  • How to restore balance in one's life
  • and more...

 Since 2012, Maud has delivered workshops supporting personal growth, life-coaching, yearly "growth groups", and provided personal accompaniment sessions.

 Maud began her working life with an international aerospace company, being based in France, Japan, England and Australia. This makes her particularly aware of the challenges faced by professionals in the corporate world. Maud now lives in Melbourne and calls Australia home.

 In 2013, after giving birth to her son, Maud decided to add a new life-coaching speciality to her ever-growing skillset adding antenatal and post-natal support for parents transitioning to parenthood.

 “We are all human beings and we share the same thirst for happiness in our lives. We just all do it differently depending on our culture, our past, our personalities. But it remains the same search.” Maud Briscoe-Renaud
