About us

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:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Pregnancy loss (Miscarriage or stillbirth)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Low confidence
  • Low self esteem
  • Birth trauma
  • Difficult pregnancy or labour
  • Abuse

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.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
