Pregnancy Loss and Miscarriage

"It hurts because it matters" - John Green

Every pregnancy matters. Every loss matters.

Whether you have miscarried at 5 weeks or 23+6 weeks, the loss exists and your experience is still valid.

Whether your loss was unexpected or a termination for medical reasons (TFMR), speaking to a counsellor could help to process the complexity of your emotions.

Every pregnancy is unique, so it makes sense that every loss is experienced differently by the bereaved mother, father or birthing person. Talking through your experience, your story, your sorrow and grief, is the first step to accepting your loss.

Life may never quite be the same again, but you can honour the changes within you and find joy once more.

My experience

I work with clients in my private practice who have experienced multiple miscarriages, are experiencing fertility issues, or those about to embark on adoption or surrogacy.

I have worked as a Cradle Counsellor supporting bereaved mothers and fathers who have experienced miscarriage and pregnancy loss. I now facilitate and clinically lead their online peer-support group, CONNECTED, for anyone who has experienced a pregnancy or baby loss at any gestation.

I am also a trustee of Cradle Charity. It is my passion to support organisations that promote the mental health and wellbeing of anyone suffering a pregnancy loss.

Prior to this I worked within a charity counselling service in the City of London, offering women therapy sessions after miscarriage or pregnancy loss.

My training

Most recently I have undertaken training with the leading baby loss charity, Petals, completing their specialist course in working therapeutically with both individuals and couples through perinatal loss, traumatic grief and anxiety in subsequent pregnancies after loss.

I am accredited with the Foundation for Infant Loss completing their training in pregnancy loss and subsequent pregnancies after miscarriage.

I have undertaken NHS training in bereavement pathways and have completed BACP accredited training in complex/complicated grief.

I am a Make Birth Better Champion and have completed their Birth Trauma course alongside further trauma training with Carolyn Spring.
