Having a baby and being pregnant can be a time of great joy and excitement, however for some there is anxiety, depression and difficulty with relationships.
At bababoom we aim to treat you holistically and that includes keeping your mind healthy as well as your body.
If you feel that having someone to talk to would help then making an appointment to see Carolyn should be your next step. At your first meeting you will be encouraged to discuss why you have made the appointment and what you feel the issues are. Carolyn will help you look not only at yourself as an individual but also within the context of your family. Together you and Carolyn will find out about each other and at the end of the session you will be able to decide what to do next. You may want to have further sessions or you may feel reassured and that at this time you feel you don't need any further sessions.
You may want to come with your partner if relationship issues factor into your concerns or simply for moral support. We aim to offer a friendly, flexible service tailored to your individual needs.
Carolyn does not just work with new or expecting parents. Anyone may access her services and it is important if you or someone you know feels low or are worrying more than usual that you find someone to talk it through with.
Carolyn is registered with the UKCP(UK Council for Psychotherapy) and you can check her out on their website. Outside of bababoom Carolyn works for the HNS as a Specialist Health Visitor, working with parents with postnatal depression and other emotional needs.
