Areas of counselling we deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
We specialise in working with fertility, pregnancy, related loss and bereavement.
We also see clients for other presenting issues that our counsellors are able to work with as this additional income enables us to continue our charitable work
Muma Nurture offers a free full 50 minute consultation to everybody.
Each service has a set value, but clients are invited to pay what they can afford.
The standard charge is £60 per session
Our clinic is based at the back of Eastbourne Train Station Car Park.
We have no private parking, so please do not drive down Wharf road. You can pay to park in the station car park, enterprise centre, or even town, which is a short walk away. Or, you may find a free park in the streets behind us if you have the time and patience to persevere.
Many of our clients travel in by train, and this may be easier if you are coming from further afield.
