Pregnancy Counselling – Lauren Burrow

Lauren Burrow       Quals: B. Psychological Science (Hons); Grad. Cert. Health Promotion

Pregnancy Counselling: Pregnancy can be a time of many concerns for an expectant mother, which can range from concerns about your parenting ability, dealing with a diagnosis of a pregnancy-related health condition (such as Gestational Diabetes or Pre-Clampsia), through to wanting to explore termination or adoption options. Lauren has experience working with pregnant clients with a range of presenting issues, including depression, stress, marital issues, difficulty bonding with their unborn baby, through to fear of childbirth. Pregnancy counselling with Lauren provides women with an opportunity to work through any fears, stressors or concerns during pregnancy with a compassionate, empathetic Psychologist.

Counselling Approach: Lauren has completed Medicare accreditation to undertake Non-Directive Pregnancy Counselling with clients (3x 30 min sessions funded by Medicare with a “pregnancy counselling” referral from your GP). Lauren’s approach follows the lead of the client; what their therapy session needs are is the direction the session will go. So much can seem out of a pregnant woman’s control in this period, so she feels that it is important that pregnancy counselling sessions revolve around what is important for the pregnant woman at that time. Evidence-based therapeutic techniques including those from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT) in addition to non-directive counselling skills are incorporated to achieve this.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 for initial appointment, $180 thereafter. Medicare and health rebates may apply. Reduced rates may be available please call reception.
