Therapy for women
who have suffered a pregnancy loss or birth trauma after fertility treatment
Move past your trauma and on to a happier future, whatever the outcome.
Hi, I’m natasha
I’m so pleased you’ve found this page! I understand you might be feeling lost, anxious or unsure of which way to turn.
Please don’t worry. If you’ve experienced a pregnancy loss during fertility treatment, I want to assure you that this is a safe place for you.
Working as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist since 2009, I focus on helping women and their partners move past pregnancy loss or birth trauma and on to a happier future.
Why? Because I’ve experienced infertility and birth trauma too, so I can draw on this experience to treat my clients with the empathy and compassion they need. It’s also important to say that my services are not for everyone. My experience and skills lie specifically with helping women who have experienced a loss during or after fertility treatment. If you have any questions about this, please get in touch.
