Trying to conceive can take its toll on relationships. Attending infertility counselling can help you to heal the past and bring some clarity to your future.
Experiencing anxiety in pregnancy is common. The fear of losing what you have hoped for can feel overwhelming, as can finding yourself in an unexpected situation.
Sadly, 10% to 15% of pregnancies end in miscarriage and 7 out of 1,000 pregnancies end in stillbirth.
That’s why, we believe that miscarriage and stillbirth support is vitally important.
Having treatment for fertility is emotionally and physically draining. No more so when undertaking a cycle of IVF. There may be a sense of grief, isolation, anxiety, and many more emotions.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 women will experience a traumatic birth. Trauma related to birth can include physical injury or emotional trauma which may come from the way they were treated by professionals throughout the birth.
All parents go through a period of adjustment when they begin to adapt to the huge changes a baby brings. However, in some cases postnatal depression or anxiety can be diagnosed.
Dealing positively with your child’s behaviour during the most important years of their life (0 to 7 years) is critical. Get support to develop evidence-based skills and strategies to deal with challenging behaviour.
Spending some time planning and discussing your later years can be beneficial.
Positive ageing support allows us to weather the expected and unexpected changes we experience.
The symptoms of trauma can occur in response to a severely distressing event or series of events.
Trauma can be experienced to varying degrees. However, the more serious it is, such as it being a life threatening event, the more difficult it is for you to process and integrate the event.
If we live long enough, we will all experience grief and loss. Grief is a natural response to loss.
It might be a miscarriage, loved one, job, pet or way of life. You may also experience a sense of loss when children leave home.
Anxiety can be tricky. Just when you think it’s loosened it’s grip, it reappears and your mind gets stuck on something else.
Getting treatment from an experienced anxiety psychologist in Geelong can help you to gain strategies to more forward faster and with more permanent results.
