In pregnancy and new motherhood
The changes new or expecting mothers go through – be they physical, emotional or hormonal – while exciting, can be stressful. Many women experience the following: anxiety, discomfort with weight gain and physical changes, hormonal ups and downs, sexual difficulties, fear of delivery, birth trauma, postnatal depression, coping with a newborn, process of bonding, going from a couple to a family, and loss of identity. Talking to a caring, unbiased professional can be a powerful support during these times when you may be slightly unsure how to cope. Psychotherapy can be beneficial to your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Sessions are usually weekly and last approximately an hour. During the session, you and the therapist work together to identify and understand what you are feeling and how it is affecting you.
I was referred to Holli Rubin, a psychotherapist who has a lot of experience with mothers-to-be. With kindness, insight and experience, Holli guided me, carefully through the minefield of physical symptoms and emotional turmoil of pregnancy. She helped me explore the gamut of emotions I was experiencing and through her I began to rationalise my feelings. I would leave her each week with a slightly clearer head and an increased acceptance of my pregnancy. I know that I am incredibly lucky to have found Holli when I did. I would recommend Holli to anyone out there who is struggling with any aspect of motherhood: you will be in safe and knowledgeable hands.
