Service Description

Perinatal loss and grief counselling attuned to the needs of the women, men, and family. Care-giving tips for managing perinatal loss and facilitating the mourning of the loss. The end of the pregnancy, at whatever gestation, can be both physically frightening and emotionally painful and being looked after by professionals who care can make an otherwise unbearable experience bearable. I work with bereaved women, their partners, and their extended families, (where it is appropriate), to make this experience less intense. In my counselling session focused on perinatal loss and grief, I help my clients to understand the personal meanings of the loss and facilitate the expression of her/ his grief. I do my best to resonate emotionally with the mother’s (father’s) feelings and to offer her/him realistic support, nurturance, and protection. I help to maintain her/his faith in her/his capacity to come through her/his loss of a functioning, whole person. I support people who have experienced early miscarriage, missed miscarriage, recurrent miscarriage, termination, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirth, intrauterine death, early neonatal death, etc. Pregnancy and infant loss often occur in silence, causing a moratorium on grief that can have a tremendous impact upon the health of the mother, as well as the rest of the family. This grief can transform into various physical and mental health issues. Because of that, please do not hesitate and contact me or book a session right now. Sessions are normally 50 minutes in length and arranged to fit into your schedule. If you are in Blenheim or Marlborough region, please, come to my office. For those outsides of Marlborough, New Zealand we can arrange a Zoom, Google Meet, FaceTime. Facebook Messenger or What's App video chat. Saving time. Convenient, affordable, and confidential.
