Fertility Counselling

Going through fertility treatment can feel as though your life is on hold. You might feel as though you can't confide in anyone who will understand what you are going through.  You might ping from pillar to post with a sweeping range of emotions.  You might require specialist knowledge about treatment procedures. You may be using a donor and need expertise in identifying and understanding the implications of this.

 

Fertility Counselling with a psychotherapist who has been specifically trained in fertility matters, can help you to explore the complex range of emotions that are likely to arise during your fertility journey.  

You may find that the clinic treating you, insists upon fertility counselling either before, during or after treatment.

I am the Specialist Fertility Counsellor at Create, a private fertility clinic near Birmingham and see clients both there and within my private practice at home.
