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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
