About me

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

Specialised experience

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.

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.

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.
