Sligo Baby Loss Support
SLIGO PRIVATE AND GROUP COUNSELLING
WHO IS BEACH GROUP COUNSELLING FOR: A small group session for bereaved parents on the beach, in the fresh air. Incorporating health, wellness, movement, breath work and much more, it is for parents who have experienced miscarriage, neonatal and/or stillbirth.
COUNSELLING AVAILABLE INDOORS AND OUTDOORS INCLUDE: Grief, loss, stages of grief, body pain, mind fog, trapped trauma, these are just a few effects of baby loss, I teach my clients how to do self-care. Gentle movement after a birth is hard, but its important for emotional and physical wellbeing. For bereaved mums, what I have found most is they do not want to go to a class or a gym and have to explain their post natal “baby bump”. Its uncomfortable, upsetting and most of all …hard, finding a safe place where you can feel heard, you are safe and understood it what is needed at this time. Its about learning not to ‘get over’ your grief and loss but instead finding ways to help move through it. Outdoor Counselling appeals to some who like nature, movement, the sound of the sea, but indoors also appeals to others, who prefer the privacy of a safe, quiet room, I offer both.
‘Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning how to dance in the rain’
Walk & Talk and Virtual: Not everyone feels comfortable talking in an office on a chair, yet bereaved parents sometimes need to talk, remembering their birth, their baby, the details of their own experience. What I have developed is a concept that gives both body and mind a safe place to go. Walk and Talk gets us outside, and allows our bodies to move, to be in the fresh open air, and to talk at the same time. The body moves, the blood ceases to pool and starts to move around the body, joints are mobilised and oxygen is distributed to the brain and the muscles in the body. Virtual Support offers support in Health and Wellness online, offering support, attention, motivation and guidance after baby loss.
