Pregnancy, pregnancy-related health issues, and new parenthood can raise confusing feelings. Some hopeful and positive; others more ambivalent and sometimes even painful.
I am a qualified, experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, specialising in both perintatal work and working with millenials. I have several years' experience working as a perinatal counsellor in two London NHS hospitals. In that work, and subsequently in my private practice, I work with women and men suffering from anxiety and/or depression associated with pre- and post-natal issues and parenthood. This can include painful feelings of loss and bereavement, low self-esteem, body dysphoria, fear of/difficult births, and struggling to relate to others. Such feelings can be lonely, and can occur before and/or after a birth.
My approach to therapy is based on psychodynamic principles. In short, this means that we would focus on how you feel now but I would also be taking into account important relationships in your past, and how these may unconsciously be influencing your present feelings and relationships.
My practice offers a peaceful, safe and confidential setting, where you are free to speak in confidence without fear of being judged or criticised. I believe that it is the quality of our therapeutic alliance, and the ability to think about issues together, that can bring about encouraging feelings of development and change.
