Counselling with Zana

What is counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy where you spend time with a trained, qualified counsellor or psychotherapist focusing on problems or concerns that are getting in the way of you leading your life the way you would like.  


Sometimes talking together is made more meaningful when complemented by a more holistic approach, so, if it feels helpful to you, we might also use relaxation techniques or creative or imaginative approaches.


We will work together to help you gain a new and more positive perspective on life, helping you respond differently or finding new ways to cope, so that your life can move forward in a more positive and fulfilling way.

Make contact

Being additionally professionally qualified as an antenatal educator and hypnobirthing teacher I also have a special interest in working with people who want to explore concerns connected to having a baby. For example...


  • Feeling anxious or scared about labour and birth

  • Postnatal depression

  • Suffering a scary or traumatic birth experience

  • Feeling disappointed

  • Coping with new emotions

  • Struggling with adjusting to parenthood

  • The impact of a baby in your life


I am happy to consider working with anyone who feels they might benefit from counselling at this challenging time of life, whether you're a mother, father, an extended family member or a friend.
