A diagnosis of infertility can feel catastrophic and very difficult to come to terms with. Fertility counselling can offer support to individuals and couples to work through feelings at each stage of treatment. It can offer therapy to those for whom the diagnosis makes day to day life a struggle or for whom it brings up past problems. Counselling on the implications of treatment is vital for those considering using donated sperm, eggs or embryos. It provides an opportunity to explore the meaning of parenting a child who may be genetically unrelated to you. It also affords a space to explore any specific issues related to same sex couples and solo women. I provide counselling services for the Agora Gynaecology and Fertility Centre in Brighton and Hove.
