Having fertility difficulties is one of the most challenging life experiences. This can have a significant impact on your emotional and physical well-being, your personal and professional relationships, your sense of self and confidence. People often experience a feeling of loss and a sense of isolation. Therefore it is not uncommon for individuals or couples to feel overwhelmed at some stage andseek support to help them address this range of difficulties. Counselling enables you to develop a clearer understanding of yourself and a better awareness of your emotional responses to personal, professional, physical or relationship difficulties. This process then can help you create better coping mechanisms and work on your personal development. My approach is person-centred and integrative. This enables you to deal with your issues in ways that are best suited to you. This can also promote positive growth and self-belief. I also use mindfulness as this has shown to be an effective tool in addressing depression and anxiety. This can help you deal with the stress and uncertainty of fertility treatments (for instance the anxiety of the 2 week wait). If you would like to find out whether this is the right approach for you, you can arrange an initial session with no commitment. I also provide 'Implications Counselling' for people considering gametes donation (egg, sperm or embryo) and surrogacy. I can provide a counselling report to your clinic on request. Fees: One hour session: £40 Clinic report: £5
