Fertility counselling

The Herts & Essex Fertility Centre believe that fertility counselling is an important part of the services we offer. The journey you are considering can be a very rocky one, and we are extremely aware of the stress the treatment can place on you.

Counselling is held with one of our independent counsellors. It is available to all our patients, and three sessions are provided free of charge, and these may be taken before, during or after the treatment cycle.

Support counselling

We fully understand that you may want to talk about your fertility treatment with an independent counsellor during your cycle of treatment. Support counselling gives you the flexibility to discuss your fertility treatment before, during or after your cycle, discussing any concerns you may have freely and confidentially.

Implications counselling

We want all our patients who are either donating or receiving a gamete (egg or sperm) to explore the implications of the treatment in a safe and secure environment. These counselling sessions give you the opportunity to discuss in full the implications your treatment may have for you and your partner, and even for your family and friends.

Therapeutic counselling

Regrettably, not all fertility treatments are successful. We can arrange counselling sessions to help you come to terms with the treatment outcome and the implications for your future fertility.
