background

Supporting Lost Parenthood

I have a particular interest, and expertise, in working with individuals and couples who struggle to conceive, or have experienced a loss during pregnancy or after birth. This is a profound and hidden grief that often struggles to be acknowledged, or supported well by others.

Before training as a therapist, I was a telephone support worker for the Miscarriage Association, later becoming a Trustee of the charity. I used to run a support group for Fertility Network UK, and now I help to facilitate a monthly support group for the Miscarriage Association (please let me know if this is of interest, as attending this will conflict with therapy with me).

In Spring 2019 my first book, The Brink of Being, which explores the experience of miscarriage, will be published by Virago Press/Penguin USA. After this, I plan to return to my Doctorate in Psychotherapy, and my further research into this field.
