Offering counselling for those affected by infertility, miscarriage, termination, stillbirth or neonatal death, providing a confidential and safe space to process some of your feelings in a compassionate and supportive environment.

We are able to offer up to 10 sessions of counselling to individuals, which takes place at our Reading town-centre location, easily accessible by public transport. 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.

Our team of volunteer counsellors are all qualified, or currently studying for their qualifications and on supervised placements with us. They all abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.


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. Please visit the News & Events page on our website for more details.

“The support they gave… was amazing. I have gone from being at my lowest, lowest point in life to feeling like I can deal with anything that life throws at us…” – Katie, 2017
