Support Group Therapy
We also provide a range of group sessions.
We know that the perinatal period can be an isolating time for many. Our vision with our groups is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to connect with other like-minded mothers.
We provide a range of mother’s support group sessions including the “Circle of Motherhood” for mother’s in the perinatal period. Our Circle of Motherhood group is a therapeutically structured group with a focus on attachment and relational frameworks. We know that the perinatal period can be an isolating time for many, so our vision with our therapeutic support groups is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to connect with other like-minded mothers
We also provide a monthly mother’s support group drop in clinic run by Midwives, Perinatal Psychologist and Lactation Consultant. It’s a great opportunity to connect informally with other mothers and ask questions related to the perinatal period. We also invite guest speakers to come in to talk on a range of topics.
(Our groups are paused for term 1, we are hoping to have up and running again in term 2)
Circle of Motherhood Group
You are invited to come connect with like-minded Mummas in a safe and nonjudgemental space as we navigate the journey of early motherhood.
Our group will be informed by attachment theory and is focused on exploring the transitions, adjustments, emotions and challenges that being pregnant and having an infant brings. Additionally we will be focusing on strengthening and exploring relationships (with others, yourself and your baby), to facilitate a supportive and positive parenting experience.
The group will be facilitated by Clinical Psychologist Cassie Osborne and Psychologist Emilie Bull– both who are passionate about working with Mum’s at this stage of life and supporting them in developing an enjoyable parent-infant relationship.
Some of the topics and themes include:
Self compassion/relationship with self
Looking after mum and discovering your own parenting strengths
Expectations in parenting and the role of internal dialogue and the past influences
The couple relationship and transitions in parenthood
Changes to the relationship with our village and how we navigate these
Interacting with baby and understanding baby’s internal world
Who can attend:
The group has limited spaces and is open to pregnant Mum’s and Mum’s with babies up to 12 months.
There is no out of pocket cost with referral.
When: Thursdays 9-10:30
