Having worked as a senior fertility counsellor with exceptional teams in large clinics, I now focus on providing independent counselling for individuals and couples around all fertility issues, at all stages of the fertility journey.
Counselling training grew from a desire to listen better and to understand loss; as a Mum through adoption, and later fostering too, I felt these would be useful skills, which was so true. My passion now includes how we cope with trauma and Interpersonal Neurobiology, self care and the importance of pregnancy; especially in terms of pre-birth attachment and familial attunement.
I didn’t intend to be a fertility counsellor, though my own fertility journey did inspire a desire to help others; initially volunteering over 20 years ago with the two charities that merged to form Fertility Network UK, and through writing the book – Making Friends with your Fertility
My own fertility journey taught me about my ability to thrive, not just survive infertility – my counselling training taught me, my stuff is just about me – your journey is all about you! No rights, no wrongs, as often fertility decisions feel 51% right and no more; we acknowledge there is no control or ability to influence an outcome of treatment and we often fear regrets.
If you think a space just for you would help, then get in touch and I look forward to working with you.
