Supporting you with specialist therapy online

About me

Helping you feel safe, supported and understood after a difficult journey to motherhood

Hi, I'm Dr Miriam Inder

People who have experienced difficult journeys to early motherhood often feel distressed, overwhelmed and alone at a time when they need nurture and support. Motherhood is also a huge catalyst for personal growth.

It is because of the heartache I experienced that I care about supporting others to navigate the terrain of motherhood with compassion and understanding. This is why I founded Better Beginnings. To use my expertise to help others who are struggling at this time of life.

As a highly experienced Perinatal Clinical Psychologist, I know the transformative power of therapy, especially when delivered with warmth and skill. I’m dedicated to creating a difference, for every individual, couple and baby I help.

‘Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul be just another human soul’

Carl Jung

I have over 17 years of post-doctoral experience with adults in the NHS and private services. I am an EMDR Accredited Practitioner and Consultant and continue to be astonished by this transformative therapy approach.

I am also proud to be a neurodivergence-affirming psychological therapist, with skills in adapting therapy to meet the needs of individuals who are autistic or with ADHD and who often have higher rates of trauma.
