House of Light
House of Light is a primary care perinatal specialist service offering counselling and support to parents who are suffering or have been affected by maternal mental health issues.
Counselling provides a safe, non-judgemental space for you to discuss your problems and worries and explore your feelings and emotions. Counselling can help give you an insight and a better understanding of yourself and the issues you face.
Pregnancy and birth is a time of huge change and for some this can feel overwhelming and may bring about many thoughts, feelings and emotions. Talking about how you feel can bring a huge sense of relief. Counselling can also empower you to make positive changes in your life.
We offer a variety of counselling modalities, advice and support. We can help with issues such as:
- Pregnancy loss (Miscarriage or stillbirth)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Low confidence
- Low self esteem
- Birth trauma
- Difficult pregnancy or labour
Founded in 2007 the service has helped thousands of women and their families. Maternal mental health issues affect around 20-25% of new mothers and 10% of new fathers. With the right help, support and treatment you can and will recover.
For further information please do not hesitate to contact the service on 01482 580499.
