Counselling Support

We offer counselling support to individuals and couples at all stages of their relationship and parenthood journey – before and after babies. 

Are you expecting a baby and feeling anxious about how you will manage together?
Are you struggling with your new role as parent and experiencing conflict with your partner?
Are you feeling disconnected or frustrated in your relationship?

We understand that individuals and couples can be challenged by a variety of issues relating to family dynamics, fertility and conception, pregnancy, birth, the postnatal period, and beyond. New parenthood is a roller coaster of an experience that can send each partner into different directions and we know that relationship satisfaction often declines during those early post-partum days. Let us support you to overcome your differences, better adjust to the changes and improve your well-being so that you can work more effectively as a team to raise your baby, and yourselves!

We will help you to:

  • Improve communication, connection, intimacy, and conflict resolution with your partner and family
  • Process unresolved past issues or trauma that may be affecting you and your relationships
  • Better manage the adjustment into parenthood
  • Resolve confusion around changing roles and responsibilities
  • Process some of the losses related to parenthood
  • Deal with ‘Mother guilt’ and “Motherwhelm” (Dads can feel it too!)
  • Improve psychological health and well-being including perinatal depression and anxiety
  • Reduce and manage stress, anxiety and fatigue
  • Improve motivation, confidence and self esteem
  • Experiment with new ways of seeing your world and find ways to “let go”.
  • Build resilience and empowerment through self-exploration, self-knowledge and coping skills
  • Develop new insights to old problems and strategies to deal with current issues
Counselling Mum with Baby
“Sometimes we need that little bit of support to help you peel back the layers and process what’s going on beneath.”

Counselling is a process of understanding yourself and your life in order to make positive changes, achieve growth and gain fulfilment. 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.

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.

At The Parents Village we use a variety of evidence based techniques to provide high quality therapeutic support and advice. Some of the these include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Behavioral activation
  • Mindfulness based techniques
  • Creative Therapy  – This speciality incorporates the use of art, drama, music, movement, story telling, ritual and play into counselling. These creative approaches allow clients additional options for conveying and understanding their feelings, particularly in times when words are not enough.
