My name is Ange and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I am passionate about supporting clients in early parenthood; from the time they may be thinking of starting a family, through pregnancy and the first years of their children’s lives. I believe that this time in life with all of its challenge and change is incredibly unique;  it’s a small, and important window of time where thoughtful and compassionate support can make a huge difference to mothers, fathers, babies and families.

Some of the clients I work with have a history of complex mental health concerns, while others might find themselves struggling for the first time. Some of the things I can help with include;

  • Addressing your anxiety and/or depression in pregnancy and following the birth of your baby
  • Helping you to navigate the mammoth changes that motherhood brings
  • Assisting you and your partner to transition to parenthood as a team
  • Developing your confidence in yourself and your ability to parent your baby
  • Strengthening your developing bond with your baby
  • Working through grief and perinatal loss; including miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death
  • Supporting you through pregnancy following loss
  • Supporting your recovery from a difficult or traumatic birth
  • Exploring issues from your own childhood, which can often become front of mind when you become a parent yourself

When we first meet, I’ll take the time to get to know you, your unique story and your strengths. I am respectful, gentle and supportive and aim to create a space where you can put your thoughts and feelings into words, without fear of judgement. Therapy should be a place for you to feel heard and understood, where you can pause and make sense of your experiences. Together we’ll work out how therapy can create meaningful change in your life by focusing on the things that are most important to you. My work incorporates Compassion-Focused Therapy,  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy and Attachment Theory.
