What is counselling?

Counselling provides a safe, non-judgemental space for you to discuss your problems and worries and explore your feelings and emotions. Counselling can help give you an insight and a better understanding if yourself and the issues you face.

Pregnancy and birth is a time of huge change and for some this can feel overwhelming and may bring about many thoughts, feelings and emotions. Talking about how you feel can bring a huge sense of relief. Counselling can also empower you to make positive changes in your life.

Our counsellors can use a variety of techniques to help you with the issues you face.

We help with issues such as: -

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Pregnancy loss (Miscarriage or stillbirth)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Low Confidence
  • Low self esteem
  • Birth Trauma
  • Difficult Pregnancy or labour
  • Abuse

Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Having antenatal depression does not necessarily mean you will develop postnatal depression. Many mums do feel well once their baby is born and having help and support as soon as possible makes all the difference.
