Going through fertility treatment, it can feel as though your life is on hold and it is hard to move forward or plan your future. Sometimes you feel as though you cannot confide in anyone who will understand what you are going through.
Counselling is an opportunity to explore any emotional difficulty, fears and anxieties, or distress that you might experience during your fertility journey. It can help you to cope, make choices, and change aspects of your situation. It doesn’t involve giving advice or direction to take a particular course of action; at times it may involve providing information.
It is also important for us to acknowledge how stressful fertility treatment itself can be and for these reasons, the counselling service is available to all patients before, during and after treatment. Up to three sessions of counselling are included free of charge for IVF, ICSI and FET patients.
For patients who are considering donating eggs or sperm, or having treatment with donor eggs or sperm it is important that all the implications of this treatment have been explored for both the couple and the potential child. Anyone considering this treatment will be encourage to meet with the counsellor. http://www.fertilitycounsellingserviceni.co.uk
