About us

Have you recently experienced a late miscarriage, fetal anomaly, stillbirth or neonatal loss and live in SE London, Kent or Surrey?

We offer specialised counselling sessions.

Abigail’s Footsteps launched a new campaign in 2019, after realising the lack of support for bereaved families from the NHS, we fund counselling sessions with our specialist baby loss counsellor & Ambassador, Naomi Marston from Lifecare Counselling, to offer private sessions either via video call or face to face.

Training, qualifications & experience

We have over 20 years of experience in NHS, private and voluntary sectors.

We support both men and women through pregnancy and baby loss, this type of loss often has a ripple effect on other areas of our lives such as relationships, stress, anxiety, confidence and poor self-esteem.

The loss of a baby or child is likely to be the most devastating, unimaginable experience for any parent. It is therefore not surprising to know that parents who have experienced this loss are likely to experience complicated grief. We help and assist parents to learn how to live with their loss, finding ways and implementing strategies to carry on.

Member organisations *


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
