Private counselling options

Counselling can help with issues arising from pregnancy related issues such as abortion, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, and the resulting emotions that can sometimes follow them. UK counsellors are professionally qualified to help you explore and manage your thoughts, feelings and issues. They offer caring, non-judgemental support.

What does Marie Stopes UK counselling consist of?

Counselling is the process of talking through your concerns with a trained professional. This form of talking therapy lets a person discuss their feelings and problems in a confidential and safe environment. Our professional, highly trained counsellors can help with any difficult decision you need to make, or help you come to terms with decisions you've made in the past. No matter what you are struggling with, our hand-selected counsellors will provide a safe and supportive environment to make sure you are listened to in a way that helps you understand yourself better.

Counselling is not about offering you advice but instead helping you to find your own understanding of what you are dealing with and teaching you coping strategies. It is often easier to talk to a trained professional than a family member or a friend as your counsellor is not personally involved with the situation.
