Oasis of Calm
If you’re feeling stressed, anxious or depressed we can help with our ‘Oasis of Calm’ approach. When you’re feeling stressed and anxious or troubled by intrusive thoughts or emotions try one of our ‘calming’ approaches – these psychotherapy tools are free to download.
During this Covid-19 pandemic, we also have access to a network of professional Counsellors who can provide 1:1 therapy, through video (Zoom, Skype), telephone, or by email. Counsellors are mainly, but not exclusively, female Counsellors who are all fully qualified and members of the BACP – British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (the main national body that regulates counselling in the UK). They also have relevant experience in the first, critical 1000-days context. So whether you are an expectant or new Mum (or Dad) confidential help is available!
The benefits of forms of online or telephone counselling are that you can do this from your own home. And the option of email counselling means that you don’t have to be at a specific time/place. These types of counselling can work well – for example researchers at the University of Exeter, have shown that postnatal depression can be treated effectively using online therapy.
The hourly rates vary from £30-60, (with discounts available for introductory sessions and with some concessionary rates).
We offer some free simple tools that can help you with your symptoms. Check out these for Anxiety and Depression.
