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 offer a professional counselling service to provide 1:1 therapy, through video (Zoom, Skype), telephone, or by email. Our Counsellors 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.
The benefits of forms of online or telephone counselling are that you can do this from your own home. This can work well – researchers at the University of Exeter, have shown that postnatal depression can be treated effectively using online therapy.
For a limited time, you can have an introductory session at a discounted price (see fees).
In addition if you’re a member of a Parent/Toddler Group, the Group Manager may have access to some discount codes, providing some introductory sessions, completely free of charge.
