Counselling For Women

We all struggle with feelings of depression, anxiety, or just feeling stuck in old patterns. This can leave us feeling alone and detached, which can cause unwelcome suffering. The latest research in neuroscience tells us that we are far more social than we ever realized. We need connection with others, we need to relate with others. This is why depression counselling is so powerful. Counseling offers a safe and confidential space with a qualified professional to reconnect with ourselves and heal.

Why Counselling for Women?

Our Counsellors understand the struggles that women face. And it’s important to find a counsellor who sees the bigger picture. Often, we feel like there’s something wrong with us, when really we’re fighting again societal norms and expectations.

While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely or for long periods of time. Sometimes without any apparent reason. Consequently, depression is more than just a low mood – it’s a serious condition that affects us both mentally and physically resulting in lower life satisfaction.

On the flip side, some of us struggle with anxiety. We might feel ‘geared up’ all the time, like our bodies are on red alert, and we don’t know why. We can’t think straight or fixate on things, worry too much but we can’t stop. Counselling can help us not only manage these symptoms, but find the root cause and make real change.

Pre and Postpartum Counselling

Pregnancy and motherhood can be a very emotional time. It can be filled with joy, excitement and happiness, also with anxiety, fear or uncertainty. Pregnancy is an important time to focus on your health, especially your mental health. Because our emotions affect the baby; both in the womb and after birth.

Counselling specifically for women, will help you navigate life choices and cope better. We can help you meet the challenges that come with parenting. Also, counselling is a great resource to add to your support network. ‘Baby blues’ can hit hard and fast so having an existing counsellor can help. Our counsellors work with many issues that may arise during pregnancy and after including infertility, miscarriages, terminations and traumatic birth experiences.
