Perinatal Counselling

GET IN TOUCH

Becoming a parent is one of the biggest physical, psychological and emotional transformations we experience as adults. Often with little recognition of the transitions that we go through. Instead, society focuses on how quickly we can “get back to normal” or what we “lose”.

But parenthood changes us, and is just as much about raising babies as it is about raising ourselves.

At least 1 in every 5 mothers will experience Depression or Anxiety during pregnancy or after their baby is born (this is known as perinatal depression and anxiety). 1 in 10 non-birthing partners also experience this type of psychological distress.

COMMON REASONS PARENTS COME TO THERAPY

  • Antenatal Depression or Anxiety (during pregnancy)

  • Worries about becoming a parent

  • Postnatal Depression or Anxiety (birth to 2 years)

  • Difficulties enjoying time with family

  • Strong emotions (e.g anger, frustration, overwhelm)

  • Overwhelmed with physical or mental load of parenting

  • Missing pre-baby life

  • Parenting journey not going how you planned

  • Sleep deprivation or exhaustion

  • Feeling alone or unsupported

  • Worried, nervous or hard to unwind

  • Struggling with how much life and relationships have changed

Parents need time to adjust to their new life, permission to struggle, to embrace our “new selves”, to grieve what isn’t quite what we expected and to celebrate all the wonderful experiences that parenthood brings. Most of all we shouldn’t have to do this alone.

I meet you where you are at in your journey, provide personalised support, counselling and strategies to find your way back to calm, connection and joy. I will hold space for you to safely explore your experiences with empathy, compassion and free from judgement.
