Counselling

Are you expecting a baby and feeling anxious?

Are you a new parent feeling overwhelmed by the huge adjustments?

Are you finding it hard to cope with your current situation?

Sometimes we need that little bit of support to help you to peel back the layers and process what is going on beneath

The Parents Village provides personalised counselling for new and expectant parents to explore some of the challenges that pregnancy and new parenthood brings.

Counselling is a process of understanding yourself and your life in order to make positive changes, achieve growth and gain fulfillment. The Parents Village offers a space for you to: explore and understand your feelings and behaviour, resolve emotional pain and gain insight into your relationships.

Transitioning into parenthood is an enormous life adjustment that deeply affects the individual, couple and family as a whole. Using a variety of evidence based techniques we can help you move forward as you travel through the path of parenthood.

Many new Mums and Dads find that parenting is much harder than they expected, and this often catches them by surprise. They can often feel they are failing and completely alone because everyone else seems to be OK.

Sharing your experience in a safe and confidential space with one of our skilled counsellors can feel liberating, relieving and empowering. Research shows that accessing support early on can help you to explore, process and resolve your concerns, and confidently cope within your new role so that you can enjoy all the beauty that parenthood has to offer.

We will help you to:

  • Better manage the adjustment into parenthood
  • Process the losses related to parenthood
  • Deal with ‘Mother guilt’ and “Motherwhelm”
  • Resolve confusion around changing roles and responsibilities
  • Cope with fatigue, stress and anxiety
  • Improve communication with your partner and family
  • Nurture yourself so that you can nurture your baby
  • Improve your psychological health and wellbeing including post-natal depression
  • Increase awareness and encourage mindful parenting and attachment.

Counselling at The Parents Village is available to both individuals and couples as we know that relationship satisfaction can often decline during those early post-partum days. New parenthood is a roller coaster of an experience that can send each partner into different directions. Let us support you to overcome your differences, adjust to the challenges and work more effectively together in a strong partnership raising your new baby (and yourselves!).
