Counselling and support for those affected by infertility, baby loss at any stage of pregnancy, or postnatal depression.


Free & confidential counselling for those affected by loss in pregnancy (including miscarriage, stillbirth, neo-natal death and termination). Our counselling service is available to women, and their partners, in Reading and the surrounding area. All our counselling takes place in our dedicated counselling rooms in our town centre offices, just 5 minutes walk from the Oracle shopping centre. We are able to offer 10 sessions of confidential counselling to individuals, or couples, and have an average waiting time of 6-8 weeks.


Facilitating local peer support groups. Our programme runs throughout the year, so please visit our news pages for details of support groups for those affected by loss in pregnancy or postnatal depression.

Through the sessions I came to forgive myself and let go of all the shame and guilt that had been burdening my life
