The transition to parenthood is a seismic event. Even if having children has been a lifelong desire, once it arrives, it can feel impossibly hard. I know how easy it is to feel lost, between who you were before and who you think you should be now. Trapped by the constant demands and responsibilities of a baby it’s impossible to feel good at anything.
Perhaps you’ve experienced a previous loss of a pregnancy, a difficult birth, relationship difficulties or feeding problems. I know you want to feel happier and be the best parent you can, and I understand the challenges; it’s hard to explain why you feel depressed or anxious, people don’t understand and this was not how early parenthood was supposed to feel.
Over the years I have helped other people like you overcome similar problems of postnatal depression and anxiety.
It is essential to have a safe, non-judgemental therapy space to help you begin to understand your feelings. Then approaches such as CBT, used sensitively in postnatal therapy, can help you develop a different relationship with your thoughts and feelings. Allowing you to feel more connected with the things you care about and the people you love, including perhaps your baby.
I hope that after our work you can feel like a happier version of yourself, more connected to the things that matter, and knowing you are a good enough parent.
