Counselling and support for those affected by infertility or baby loss during pregnancy or soon after birth.


Confidential counselling for those affected by infertility or loss in pregnancy (including miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death and termination). Our counselling service is available to women, and their partners, in Reading and the surrounding area. Our counselling takes place at 2 locations in the town centre, both with easy access to nearby car parks. We are able to offer 10 sessions of counselling to individuals, and have an average waiting time of 8 weeks. We also have some availability for couples counselling, though we currently only have one counsellor able to provide this, therefore the waiting list is longer.

Support Groups

Facilitating local peer support groups for those affected by infertility or loss in pregnancy or soon after birth. Our programme runs throughout the year, at a central Reading venue. We also have a Rainbow Pregnancy Support Group. Please visit our News & Events page for more details.


Reading Lifeline is part of The Mustard Tree, and an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP No.201285).

Through the sessions I came to forgive myself and let go of all the shame and guilt that had been burdening my life
