Are you experiencing fertility problems? Therapy can help address the psychological strain.

Fertility problems and their effects on mental health

The journey to parenthood is not always an easy road. For some, it can be fraught with difficulties and for others, it is simply unobtainable. Fertility treatment can be a lengthy process that can cause considerable strain on both you and your partner. If emotions are left unchecked and the stress of uncertainty manifests itself as negative feelings, the problem of conceiving a child can become all-encompassing.

The psychological ramifications of this process can be incredibly difficult to cope with and can impact personal well-being as well as the foundations of a relationship. Whether you are coming to terms with the possibility of not being able to conceive, or are in the process of IVF treatment, addressing your feelings is an important step during this emotionally complex time.

How counselling can offer support to those with fertility problems

Online counselling offers a confidential environment in which you can examine your feelings and emotions towards fertility and family. By creating this space for dialogue and resolution, issues surrounding the process of fertility treatment and its effects upon your mental health, relationships and sex life can be addressed.

The importance of understanding our fears and thoughts associated with infertility cannot be underestimated. Counselling can help support you to find acceptance at the end of treatment and recognise or explore alternative options. The intense emotions linked with the problems of fertility are approached with compassion and can enable you to find appropriate coping strategies to manage your feelings and expectations.

They will work with you either together as a couple or separately, and equip you with the ability to manage difficult feelings.
