Facing infertility can trigger feelings of shock, anger, anxiety and despair which can leave a person feeling isolated and affecting relationships. Sometimes similar feelings can arise for those considering sperm, egg or embryo donation or surrogacy; at times it might feel like no-one understands. Facing infertility can bring problems not easily solved on one’s own. This is when counselling can be useful, providing a confidential space where it can be safe to talk, be listened to, and explore feelings. Counselling should not be feared. Rather it can help and be a support through painful struggles. Listening to and supporting you, the aim of counselling is to help you talk and discover a way forward that is right for you, whether before, during or after treatment.
