For many women childbirth is experienced as a happy, gratifying and empowering experience. For others it can be a traumatic event associated with feelings of being out of control, powerlessness, confusion and fear. I specialize in the treatment of psychological difficulties following traumatic birth experiences and have the knowledge to treat a range of issues that can develop following a difficult birth including:

  • Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks, sleep difficulties, anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Struggling relationship with baby
  • Low body image, low self-esteem
  • Earlier traumatic events triggered by child-birth
  • Anxieties about parenthood
  • Psychosexual and relationship difficulties
  • Concerns about giving birth again
