Fiona Rogerson (B.Couns) – Perinatal Counsellor and HypnoBirthing Educator
Exhale Counselling & Wellbeing was created from a culmination of my own personal experiences of birth and motherhood together with what I witnessed to be similar experiences of other mothers. We are all entitled to live a rewarding and fulfilling life, but at times, for mothers in particular, this just doesn’t seem possible. With the right support, it is possible. I offer women safe, non-judgmental, confidential counselling with a perinatal focus, in the areas of birth trauma, prenatal and postnatal anxiety, loss of identity, low self-esteem, anger and guilt, stress, grief and loss, fertility issues, life challenges, and unplanned pregnancy.
I also offer unbiased, inclusive HypnoBirthing childbirth classes, promoting informed choice, empowerment and confidence in birthing women.
Exhale Counselling & Wellbeing works to support mothers in all phases of motherhood so that she can be fulfilled and happy… providing the tools a women needs to seek out a positive experience from birth, and to also support her emotionally and psychologically if and when she needs it.
Pregnancy, birth and motherhood can be an incredibly intense time for so many women. It can be a rollercoaster of highs and lows, with challenges that were never expected. Each woman has the right to be happy, confident and fulfilled, and my work in antenatal education and counselling support facilitates women claiming that right and living it. I’ve been there myself, and I know things can be different.
You are not alone in what you feel, even if you’re not exactly sure what you feel… about your pregnancy, your birth, your parenting, yourself. Fear, anxiety, guilt, anger, numbness, confusion. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right support and guidance, it can be different.
