Trying to conceive can feel like a long, lonely road. Infertility counselling support can offer an ear, a shoulder as well as practical approaches to coping with the many challenges you may be facing right now.
Counselling for parents

As we face challenges and changes in life, it is sometimes necessary to find support to explore personal, emotional, psychological and relationship issues that may surface. Infertility counselling can provide the space and support to understand more about yourself, the relationships you value and the issues that may affect them.

Counselling can help you to develop new skills for coping with change or to find new ways of looking at difficult or challenging issues in your life. If you are trying to conceive, counselling can help you develop the resilience, coping and stress management skills to help you stay the course.

Infertility & IVF Support

Trying to get pregnant can raise issues for you personally and within your relationship. This is a unique area of challenge and we find most people need to talk to someone intimately familiar with the particular challenges associated with infertility and especially IVF. Our counsellors have a depth of understanding about what you are experiencing physically, emotionally, socially and domestically.

Issues around failure and success, grief and loss, feelings of isolation and any past or present issues affecting your fertility can be explored and supported. Decisions about ongoing treatment or care, exploring options or making difficult decisions such as when to stop can all be made easier with the help of an experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate counsellor.
