About us

The South West London Postnatal Counselling Service provides counselling and psychotherapy to parents, from pregnancy through to all stages of parenthood.  We support parents with children of all ages and stages.

The  Service has a network of psychodynamic psychotherapists, each with indepth training and experience in this area.

As a Service, we recognise that becoming a parent is a major transition and can evoke a turbulent mixture of feelings.  Even when things go well, it takes time to adjust to the way that life changes.  As something is gained, many other things have to be given up.  Babies and young children demand all of your attention and this can be difficult and intense, in addition to being very rewarding.  You might not feel the way that you expected to feel.  Your relationship with your yourself and with your partner may undergo a dramatic shift. 

In addition we also provide support to women experiencing:

* Postnatal depression or anxiety
* Birth trauma or fear of birth
* Parenting Difficulties
* Relationship Difficulties
* Difficulties with bonding or attachment

We don't give practical advice, instead provide an emotionally safe place to explore and make sense of what is difficult and to empower each mother, or their partner to think more clearly about what is occurring and to find your own constructive solutions to the difficulties you face. 

You are welcome to bring your baby to the session, as we are aware that it can be difficult to find childcare for a young baby.  Sometimes the challenges may occur when your children are older and we provide support to parents of children of any age.

Further information

We offer an initial consultation session to anyone interested in discussing whether psychotherapy has the potential to be helpful.  This is an opportunity to talk through the situation and assess what you need.  We recognise that coming for counselling can feel daunting initially and do our best to support you and talk you through how the initial session will work.
