Fertility Counselling will provide you with a safe space to explore your own personal experience, no matter what stage you are at in the journey towards parenthood. Counselling can help with managing the stresses associated with undergoing fertility treatments, such as dealing with possible negative outcomes and the impact that this has on your emotional wellbeing. Fertility counselling allows you to talk freely about how you are feeling in a non-judgemental environment, it can help you make sense of your emotions and develop ways of coping with the difficulties and decisions you are facing. Undergoing fertility treatments can also affect the relationship that you have with your partner. There may be disagreements on how to proceed, arguments over the financial aspects of procedures, as well as having to deal with continuous disappointments.
One of the principal aspects of dealing with fertility issues is managing the sometimes overwhelming feelings of loss and grief. It can be difficult to be happy for those around you who are pregnant or who have children, and people will often say the wrong thing when trying to comfort you.
