Further details

Trying to conceive when faced with fertility issues can be a long and emotionally painful journey, often causing considerable stress. This course will help equip you with insights from counselling theories to help you make sense of your emotional responses.  You will be introduced to a range of therapeutic techniques which can help you manage the stress and emotional pain of infertility.  At each session you will hear from someone who has gone through the infertility journey and has reached “the other side” - whether through finally having a child or through coming to terms with childlessness and finding another way to make life meaningful.  The course will take place in a supportive group environment in which there will be opportunities to discuss relevant issues and learn from each other.

Who is this course for? This course is open to women, men and couples who are at any stage of the infertility journey and are seeking support and strategies for coping with the emotional impact of struggling to conceive. 

What will the course involve? The course will run for six Monday evening sessions from 6.30pm til 8.30pm. Each session will contain three elements – group discussion of a relevant topic, a chance to learn and experience therapeutic techniques and the opportunity to hear from someone who has been through the infertility journey and made it to “the other side”.

Who is the facilitator?  Gill Wier is a BACP Accredited Counsellor and co-director of Sheffield Central Counselling.  Gill brings her own personal experience of coping with infertility and over 10 years’ experience of counselling individuals and couples on a range of issues including infertility, stress, anxiety, depression and grief.
