You don’t have to feel stuck, lost or alone in your parenting journey

It can feel difficult to know how to move forward when you’ve experienced challenges or losses on the way to becoming a parent. Sometimes it’s hard to know how to put the things that have happened in their rightful place. Leaving you feeling stuck, isolated and unsure what to do next.

I am here to listen and support so you can move forward in a way that is right for you.

Better Beginnings provides therapy that is sensitive to your individual needs

I know you want to feel able to move forward in your life after difficult experiences. In order to do that you need a safe place to process what has happened.

You may be battling with infertility, grieving after pregnancy loss, or be reeling from a difficult birth.

Perhaps you are concerned about bonding with your baby or reflecting on your own childhood experiences as you transition to parenthood.

Therapy with me is a safe space to explore all these things and work out the best way forward in your life.

It is not okay to be lost under the weight of postnatal depression or anxiety. This wasn't how you imagined early parenthood would feel. I understand the challenges you are facing.

A bit about me

I’m Dr Miriam Inder. I am a clinical psychologist specialising in the perinatal period. Supporting people who are hoping to be parents, preparing to be parents or are parents already. I have 20 years experience providing therapy with warmth and skill.

I started Better Beginnings after experiencing challenges on my own journey to parenthood. It made me reflect on how hard this period can be. Fortunately, I had a group of friends who were there to support me. If I felt like this, with my clinical psychologist training, how were other parents coping?

I became passionate about using my expertise as a perinatal clinical psychologist to make a positive difference to other people’s early parenthood experiences.
