From early childhood, I felt that I was “weird” and other people were mostly “normal”. This overwhelmed me, affecting almost every aspect of my life. I tried to find a way to live with the endless debates inside my own head. Some strategies were helpful and others not so much. I have at last begun to realise that “normal” comes in a variety of flavours: I am not “weird” so much as a “rare and unusual flavour of normal”. Mostly I’m ok with that, although I’m definitely still a work in progress. I may be unique, but I’m not the only person who has ever struggled to find acceptance, purpose, motivation and direction.

How we feel has a big effect on how we see ourselves, others and our world. These feelings can be frustrating, scary, hurtful or worrying. They can either have been there for most of our lives, gradually crept up on us or come as a result of our current situation. Often, when we are struggling, the most challenging part is not understanding what we are feeling or thinking, understanding why or knowing what to do about it.

The journey of motherhood can be a challenging and emotional experience. I work with women across the motherhood experience, from fertility and IVF challenges, pregnancy loss, pre and post natal, and beyond into the toddler and school years. The emotions and conflict for mums can seem never ending. Whether it is processing grief, the birthing experience, mum guilt and not feeling like they are enough, conflicting priorities or questioning their identity and who they are. The complexity of your motherhood experience is something we can explore together, and work towards developing self-compassion and a way forward.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
