M. 'Gosia' Heeley MBACP (Accred) UKRCP,MBICA(Accred)
I have been working with infertility issues since 2002. I have my own private practice but also see patients at Lister Fertility Clinic, New Life Clinic and King Edward VII.
My work with those experiencing infertility often requires bereavement work but also looking at the implications of the treatment they hope to have. I work with those going through or considering IVF, egg, sperm or embryo donation as well as surrogacy. I also work with gamete donors.
Dealing with infertility often means dealing with multi-layered grief. There is no way of putting time limit on the process of grieving and I feel that my job is to help clients gain better understanding of what they are experiencing in confidential and safe setting. Those dealing with infertility can often feel isolated and depressed.
To decide on fertility treatment can prove difficult and it can be helpful to discuss the implications of the treatment, whether they are ethical, social or legal.
I see clients on short term and long term basis.
I am accredited by BACP (British Associacion for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and by BICA (British Infertility Counselling Associacion)
