If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for months or more (one year or more for women over 35) with no success, you may be experiencing infertility.

What Is Infertility Counselling?

Infertility counselling is a form of psychotherapy that provides emotional support and guidance to individuals and couples struggling with infertility. A qualified therapist can help you understand and cope with the emotional challenges associated with infertility, such as:

  • Grief and loss: The inability to conceive can feel like a loss, and infertility counselling can help you healthily process this grief.
  • Anxiety and depression: Infertility can be a significant source of stress and anxiety, which can lead to depression. Therapy can equip you with tools to manage these emotions.
  • Anger and frustration: It’s normal to feel angry and frustrated when faced with infertility. A therapist can provide a safe space to express these emotions and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
  • Relationship strain: Infertility can put a strain on your relationship. Counselling can help you and your partner communicate more effectively and support each other through this difficult time.
  • Isolation: Infertility can make you feel isolated from others. Support groups and therapy can help you connect with others who understand what you’re going through.
  • Low self-esteem: Infertility can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem. Therapy can help you challenge negative thoughts and build self-compassion.
  • Decision-making around fertility treatments: Infertility treatment can be a complex and expensive decision. Counselling can help you explore your options, understand the risks and benefits, and make informed choices.
