Moving on from a negative or traumatic experience

Have you had a negative or traumatic birth experience? Or a difficult or traumatic time during pregnancy or after you had your baby?


You may feel like even though it’s in the past, in your mind it still feels very present, raw and has an impact on you day to day. 


You may be pregnant now and that’s brought it all back to the surface again.


As much as you want to move on, you may find that you’re not able to and you don’t really understand why… 


You may be experiencing flashbacks, anxiety, feeling unable to talk about your birth experience without crying, feeling the weight of that emotion weighing heavily, the sadness bubbling just below the surface, spilling out uncontrollably, a lump in your throat when you hear someone telling a positive birth story. 


You may be sick to the back teeth of hearing “at least you have a healthy baby” and well meaning loved ones telling you to put it to the back of your mind and move on. If only it was that straightforward!


The impact on your relationship, how you feel about yourself as a Mum, the thought of growing your family and despite the fact that you want more children, you just don’t know if you can do it again.


I specialise in working with women just like you, who’ve had a difficult, negative or traumatic experience. If you’d like to…


  • Look back on your birth without the same emotional weight and heaviness
  • Remember your birth but feel neutral about it
  • Able to talk about your own experience, or birth in general without the lump in your throat and tears in your eyes
  • Be genuinely happy for your friend when she tells you her birth went entirely to plan
  • Plan your next birth with positivity by releasing anxiety, unhelpful thoughts and feelings 


…I’d love to support you.


What to expect:


I will be with you every step of the way, supporting you through the process, which can be ‘content free’ (which means you don’t have to talk through your birth story again if you don’t want to), your partner is also very welcome to join if you think they’d benefit too.


The 3 sessions are either in person in Coulsdon, or online so in the comfort of your own home.


The investment is £200 – your partner is welcome to join at no additional cost.

If you’d like to book, find out more or ask any questions, feel free to book a convenient time for us to speak.
