Jill Newman Miscarriage Counselling
How counselling can help with early pregnancy loss
I offer support as someone impartial, outside your normal circle of family and friends, which allows you to say how you’re really feeling. Speaking your truth to someone knowledgable, kind and understanding can be an enormous relief and help you recover from symptoms such as anxiety, depression and feeling unable to move forward.
Gaining new insight and talking about your loss and its meaning in the context of your own life, is a large part of the healing process.
What might help?
- First and most importantly, it’s a chance to talk about what’s happened, for as long as you need, in a safe and completely confidential environment
- Exploring the range of loss that’s occurred helps you come to terms with how you’re feeling
- Learning about disenfranchised grief and why sometimes other people just don’t seem to understand
- Noticing differences between how men and women grieve
- The opportunity to explore your creative side to help release painful emotions
- Help with developing a structure of good habits
I worked for ten years as a Clinical Support Assistant in an NHS Early Pregnancy Unit. This has given me first-hand knowledge and long years of experience working with people in distress caused by the trauma of miscarriage, ectopic and molar pregnancy. People whose deep grief is sometimes unacknowledged. People who may feel isolated and somehow overlooked.
Please email me, or phone, for further information. I will reply at the earliest opportunity.
Online and telephone appointments are available.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
