The birth of a mother is indeed profound. Yet in the wake of baby’s arrival, a woman’s well being is often forgotten, even by Mum herself. We focus on individual counselling, with the goal of improving and empowering the wellbeing of the mother. Therapy is tailored to your specific area(s) of need.
