Helping you to navigate life by holding compassionate and creative spaces.
I’m Sally Parkin.
I live in Yorkshire and I’m a Doula, Circle Facilitator, Mentor, Educator and the founder of Creating Circles.
I support others in liminal spaces – those times in life when you’re in between – by creating safe spaces where you can feel witnessed and held as you navigate life’s transitions from birth to grief and loss, as well as the everyday challenges that life inevitably brings to all of us.
Compassionate and creative spaces for you
Art journaling sessions for you to create, reflect and share in a safe space.
A monthly open space to talk about death, grief, loss and dying.
Red Tent Doulas
Workshops to support Doulas in becoming accredited with Doula UK.
Sally is an amazing facilitator. She creates the perfect balance in the group between allowing women to chat, share, reflect and be creative. I always leave [Maternal Journal] feeling that I have learned something new about myself but have also learned from sharing with other women.
Supporting parents pre and postnatally
Personalised sessions including everything you need to prepare for birth and parenting.
Wrap around care for you and your family during the antenatal, birth and post-natal period.
Emotional and practical support for a long as you need (typically for six weeks) after birth.
Every birthing woman deserves a Sally! I’d heard [a Doula] was essentially ‘Mothering the Mother’ but Sally brought so much more awesomeness to our home than we could have expected. She was a huge support to me and my husband and she definitely went above and beyond the call of duty to assist us in any way possible.
Courses and training
Creating Circles Course
Feel confident to safely hold space and run circles of your own.
Creative, reflective spaces for a resilient, happy work environment.
NCT Antenatal Course
A group course to help you prepare for the birth of your baby.
Sally was calm and considered in everything she said to us. She allowed everyone to speak and get involved. Everyone was encouraged to participate and learn. No question was too stupid.
