Professional Counselling

Make a donation

We offer parents who have experienced a baby trauma or bereavement up to 6 sessions of free* professional counselling. For siblings we can also offer 4 sessions of play therapy*

Counselling currently takes place in a venue either in Dartford, Strood or Rainham (Kent)

We receive referrals from hospital staff, GP’s, health visitors, other charities and we also take self referrals. The first contact is usually within a week of being referred to us.

Counselling is a challenging process and a bit daunting for many. However if you feel that you are stuck or unable to cope with day to day life we recommend you get in touch. Nothing can change your experiences or if applicable to you bring back a baby that has sadly passed, but we can try to help you come to terms with what has happened in as positive a way as possible.  You are not alone.

“Fantastic charity, amazing people, I wouldn’t have got through my high risk pregnancy without them, they went above and beyond anything I expected, visiting me in hospital when I nearly died after having my son 10 weeks early, then arranging counselling afterwards. Cannot thank them all enough” Amy Akhurst
