Parent Mental Wellbeing and Support


Parent Mental Wellbeing and Support is a therapy service established to assist parents in maintaining their mental health through pregnancy, birth and beyond.

The service aims to help parents experience the joy of connecting with themselves and their family. It is based on an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework which has mindfulness as one of it's core principles.

• Mindful pregnancy and childbirth
• Mindful parenting
• Post natal mental health (including traumatic birth)
