Psychotherapist, MSc, MUKCP
I am also a specialist fertility counsellor who works with individuals and couples struggling with the trauma surrounding infertility treatment, pregnancy and baby loss.
I am an experienced UKCP registered psychotherapist and Relational Transactional Analyst. I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for individuals and couples to explore a range of issues. I work alongside couples to help them reconnect and rebuild their relationship, especially when communication and trust have broken down; where there is conflict or where the partners are struggling with painful and difficult life events. I see individuals who may be struggling to find the right partner or who seem to be unable to maintain their relationships.
I work with clients on short and long term basis and have experience with relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, panic attacks, trauma, depression, loss and bereavement, birth trauma, infertility , miscarriages, IVF.
As I witness my clients transform, I am often reminded of the ancient Japanese art of mending pottery with gold. In order to survive emotional pain, loss, and trauma, we fragment parts of ourselves, that we can disown, or see as flawed, broken or wrong. The process of therapy is reclaiming these parts, seeing their pain, acknowledging their wisdom. We cultivate self-compassion and understanding, which results in more harmonious and satisfying relationships, helps us get unstuck, opens up space to be creative in how we see the world and achieve our goals.

Step Forward Counselling
Counsellor, MSc, MBACP
Losing a baby is devastating, no matter how many weeks pregnant you were. Infertility is life changing and isolating. The fear of never achieving parenthood, ever-present. Childlessness is a grief few understand and yet 1 in 5 women remain childless, the large majority, involuntarily. Wondering if / when, to change direction, to continue pursuing parenthood or not, can leave you feeling overwhelmed. I support women and men who are struggling with pregnancy loss; infertility ; IVF, potentially using Donor Eggs; Sperm or Embryos as well as childlessness and associated secondary losses.

Dr Nancy Hakim Dowek
Cultural Issues, Depression, Grief, Identity Problems, Immigration, Infertility , Relationships, Transitions, Stress, Trauma.
My initial interest in Existential therapy was informed by my personal and professional experiences. Throughout the years I have explored diverse ways of supporting my clients, looking to improve their emotional and spiritual balance. Existential therapy encapsulates all my core beliefs about the therapeutic process and the powerful therapeutic connection between psychology and philosophy. It is anchored in the lived experiences (not their theoretical representation) and their relational context. It relates to human existence and predicaments, our choices and responsibilities, meaning and purpose, freedom and limitations.

How can infertility affect couples and their relationship?
Clients who are dealing with infertility may experience conflict and communication problems. It’s not unusual for shame, blame, and guilt to arise in cases of infertility, whether the source of the problem is one partner or both. This means that clients are upset and pulling away from their partner just when they need them the most. Some clients may find it difficult to spend time around friends and family who are pregnant. Friends and family can also make hurtful comments that increase tension during this time.
How does therapy for infertility issues work?
The therapist will begin by gathering information about the client or couple and make a treatment plan for their specific concerns. In addition to addressing common mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, and trauma reactions or PTSD, therapists can help clients improve their decision-making and deal with stressors unique to infertility. Some examples include coping with the “two-week wait” before a pregnancy test, the distress associated with a failed attempt or miscarriage, and the shame and blame sometimes associated with reproductive concerns.
What type of therapy is best for infertility issues?
Many therapists offer psychotherapy for individuals and couples who are dealing with infertility issues. Some helpful therapeutic approaches include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which can aid clients in reframing negative thoughts about their situation. Expressive writing and art therapy can help clients process difficult feelings. Clients might also benefit from group therapy to experience support from others who are dealing with the same problems.
How long does therapy for infertility issues take?
There is no set length for therapy that addresses infertility or reproductive concerns. Some clients might find it helpful to continue therapy during their pregnancy to have healthy ways to cope with any associated stress, anxiety, depression, or trauma. Some clients who decide not to pursue fertility treatments might benefit from the support of a therapist. The duration of therapy varies depending on the individual client’s specific needs and goals.
