Zoe Tolman (Dip. Couns) MBACP
Are you experiencing prenatal or postnatal anxiety or depression?
Or are you a new parent who is feeling overwhelmed, isolated or vulnerable and not sure where to turn to for support?
Perhaps you are pregnant and feeling terrified about the birth?
Or perhaps you are a new Mum who has experienced a traumatic birth but has not yet had a chance to process this?
Do you need a safe, non-judgemental and confidential place to explore how you are feeling?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions you may find some counselling helpful. Contact me for a free telephone consultation.
I am a qualified and BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist with experience in working with ladies experiencing prenatal and postnatal anxiety and depression, birth trauma and birth anxiety.
I integrate key concepts from Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive & Behavioural therapeutic approaches enabling me to work effectively with clients experiencing a wide range of issues.
As a Humanistic therapist, I believe that each and every human being is important and unique and I am keen to understand your world and your perspectives. Sometimes just being listened to and understood can help us feel less isolated.
At times the counselling process may feel quite challenging and it is by exploring these challenges that we can learn the most about ourselves. I will be there to support you throughout the counselling process until you feel you are ready to end our work together.
I am also a FEDANT registered antenatal educator, a qualified Wise Hippo hypnobirthing and birth preparation instructor and a Doula.
I teach The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme and other antenatal classes to help couples feel more empowered, confident and prepared for their baby's birth. I offer classes and prenatal and postnatal support groups in Saffron Walden & surrounding areas.
