Birth Trauma Counselling
There has been growing recognition over the past twenty years that people can feel traumatised by many aspects of pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. Around one-third of women describe some part of their birth as traumatic and around four percent meet the criteria for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Birth Trauma Counselling involves regular, ongoing therapy sessions, where you will be supported to tell your story in a safe, understanding and non-judgemental environment.
We will work through your physical and emotional response to the experience and develop strategies that enable you to effectively process, find peace and move forward.
Occasionally your situation may warrant referral to another mental health practitioner and I can help to guide you through this process.
