Post-natal depression support group (an NCT initiative)

Every Thursday from 8 – 9pm at Springbank Clinic.

The group is suitable for mothers who have been diagnosed with post-natal depression and also mothers who feel they may be experiencing one or more symptoms of post-natal depression.

Post-natal depression symptoms:

  • Low mood and persistent sadness
  • Lack of energy and constantly tired
  • Loss of interest and pleasure in life
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lack of appetite or increase in appetite (‘comfort eating’)
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Feeling anxious and/or guilty
  • Having strange or frightening thoughts about harming yourself or your babyList item

The purpose of the group is to provide therapeutic support, self-help advice and a space to share experiences, and also to be heard, in a safe supportive and confidential environment. The group provides an opportunity to realise that you’re not alone (that others too are going through a similar experience) to get help with managing your feelings, emotions and mood, and to have some valuable ‘me time’ away from your baby/children, in a calm and relaxing environment with other like-minded mothers.
The group is run by Kirsty Wood, a chartered counselling psychologist with over 15 years experience of studying and working in the areas of counselling and psychotherapy. She is registered with the BPS and the HCPC. A mother herself, Kirsty works locally from Springbank Clinic, offering counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples.
Starts 27th June. £3 per meeting
