Other areas of counselling we deal with
UMEUS primarily supports parents and families across the perinatal journey, from conception, through pregnancy and birth, into parenthood and beyond.
It is our belief that talking therapies are not reserved for crisis, but can be employed to offer a chance to ease transitions through the major life changes that parenthood brings, and aid personal development that can impact the life of our children, our communities and society as a whole.

Fees are varied across the organisation and depend on the type of service required.
We also operate a Fair Rate service for counselling which is determined after self-referral and decided with client.
Logistical, financial, psychological and physiological circumstances are considered and eligibility is not based on points or ‘scoring’ but on holistic human need.
UMEUS Foundation has a unique approach to supporting parents with a holistic breadth of services that promote compassion, awareness, inlcusivity, autonomy, intuition and non-judgement.
Our online community offers parents a safe and nurturing space to honestly share the experiences in the various stages of parenthood.
The forums are supported by the UMEUS team who also provide insights using psycho-educational content and approaches from counselling, mindfulness and yoga philosophies.
