Online Psychologists: Postnatal Therapy




“When we begin to know ourselves in an open and self-supportive way, we take the first step to encourage our children to know themselves.”


DANIEL J SIEGEL

Transition to Parenthood



With so many changes in the transition to parenthood, it can be hard to know whether your feelings are ‘normal’. It takes time to adjust to the transition for yourself and your family, you need time to feel comfortable and find your way in parenting.


You may be feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious or depressed or you may simply need some support as you adjust to parenthood. Our online psychologists are committed to exploring ways to facilitate joyful, confident parenting and a secure, loving bond between parents and infants.

Postnatal Depression and Postnatal Anxiety



It can be hard to know how to meet your needs whilst meeting the needs of your baby. At Stirling Connections we understand how debilitating postnatal depression and postnatal anxiety can be, especially when you have a child to care for.


Our online psychologists will work with you to improve your postnatal mental health and support you in developing your relationship with your baby.

Bonding with your Baby



Many mums and dads wish to parent differently to how they were raised. There may be things about your upbringing that you want to bring forward into your own parenting, and aspects that you don’t.

We can explore these themes with you as you transition into being the parent you want to be. You may want to see a psychologist online for individual online therapy or join our online Circle of Security groups.

Parents are welcome to and encouraged to bring their baby to online therapy appointments at Stirling Connections.

Relationship with your Partner



The transition to parenthood puts enormous pressure on a relationship. We know that 67% of couples experience a significant drop in relationship satisfaction after the birth of a child. You may find yourself becoming more irritable or notice that you are increasingly criticising your partner. You may be struggling to find time to spend together, you might feel disconnected or you may be having difficulties with intimacy.


You may find yourselves fighting over things that were never an issue before - arguing over money, feeling unsupported and not heard, or both feeling you don’t get enough time on your own. You might want to attend an online workshop such as Bringing Baby Home to develop your skills, or re-prioritise your relationship with a Couples Retreat or perhaps regular Online Counselling appointments with a psychologist might be what you need to improve communication and build connection.
