For some mothers motherhood can be a difficult and emotional time. Becoming a mother can bring up issues around the mothers own family relationships and her childhood experience. Mothers can sometimes find it difficult to cope with a new baby if they don’t have support from family and friends to draw on. Some mothers experience depression during pregnancy as well as after the birth.
Individual sessions for mothers offer more in-depth and focussed support. These sessions help them to come to terms with their emotional reaction to motherhood and gives them support in coping with the stresses that motherhood sometimes brings. These sessions are also for mothers experiencing post-natal depression or depression during pregnancy. With the right support and space to explore the feelings and thoughts that come up, mothers can feel better about themselves and be better able to cope.
I offer 50 minute sessions once a week in central Reading. For more information on the psychotherapy and counselling I offer and my way of working, please see my website or contact me by email or phone 07957 154621.
